Below you will find career highlights, and direct contact information.
Lee S Dryburgh is a telecommunications engineer, technologist and futurist.
His expertise is in two domains:
In his “youth” he spent years pouring over the 17,000+ pages which constitute the SS7/SigTran related specifications. Concurrently he worked across 30+ countries and 13 US States providing certification testing, training and consulting in SS7/SigTran matters for leading operators and vendors. By age 25 he was considered the world’s most knowledgeable SS7 expert and was the lead-author of the best SS7/SigTran book - "SS7/C7 Protocol, Architecture and Services" (Cisco Press).
He then spent some years chasing hands on knowledge of what the industry said was next; working on engineering for the first 3G rollout, the first NGN, and the first mobile IMS network.
In his late 20s he began an engineering doctorate for Cisco looking at the future of telephony. He came to the conclusion that what the industry said was next, was wrong; and that the emergent opportunity space was enormous but frightfully complex. As a result established telecom conferences were largely irrelevant, so at the start of 2008 he setup his own - the Emerging Communications Conference & Awards (eComm). The event is now highly regarded and is seen as the world’s leading-edge communications event. It focuses on what’s next in telecom, mobile and Internet communications (see http://eComm.ec).
His engineering speciality is telecommunications signaling; Signaling System #7 (SS7/C7), SS7oIP (SigTran) as well as a SS7 applications, namely: Mobile Application Part (MAP), Customized Applications for Mobile networks Enhanced Logic (CAMEL), Intelligent Network Application Protocol (INAP), Advanced Intelligent Network (AIN), Base Station Subsystem Application Part (BSSAP), Radio Access Network Application Part (RANAP), Broadband ISDN User Part (B-ISUP), Bearer Independent Call Control Protocol (BICC). He's also comfortable with the non-SS7 signaling protocols such as Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) and H.323/H.324M plus MEGACO/MGCP.
He is a member of The Institution of British Telecommunications Engineers (IBTE), The Professional Contractors Group (PCG), The Federation of Telecommunications Engineers of the European Community (FITCE), The British Computer Society (BCS), The Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE) and The Institute of Electronic and Electrical Engineers (IEEE).
Lee is both interested in life and people; specifically topics such as purpose, what motivates people, peak performance and happiness. (he can be reached at lee.dryburgh at SS7.net)
