Bill Scheible

Q: Why do you want to serve on the INTC board?

A: I’ve spent many years in the networking/telecom industry and have been involved with network and internet standards most of my career.  I’ve worked in the vendor, customer and integrator segments of the business and continue today in supporting IEEE standards groups.  My background includes commercial, US federal and internal standards/networking efforts.    I’ve have a “big picture” mentality about the internet,  tempered with the business and industry realities of what it can do.  I think the INTC board and its organization had and will continue to impact the industry and I would like to offer my expertise and knowledge in helping achieve its goals.

Q: Do you have a vision or thoughts on new activities INTC might do (activities INTC is not currently doing)?

A: Assuming IPv6 finally gets fully adopted,  I would suggest effort in the IoT and edge computing standards areas.   Distributive computing may be making a come back and standards/approaches are lacking right now.

Q: Please describe any experience with IETF or other standards bodies.
