Richard Mei

Richard Mei is the VP of Engineering, Global Standards and Systems at CommScope, a global leader in infrastructure solutions for communications networks. Based in Richardson, Texas, Mr. Mei’s group is responsible for global standard participation as well as systems engineering for the Connectivity Solutions Division. This includes research in the areas of twisted-pair, fiber cabling, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC), and LAN/SAN/Cabling standards support. Mr. Mei joined Bell Labs in 1997 as a member of the Technical Staff in Middletown, NJ.  He designed various custom test systems with computer-based hardware and software that were used to characterize the transmission property of cabling systems.  His team has the state of the arts Modal Decomposition Modeling, DMD (Differential Mode Delay) test bench and the copper/optical communication test gear that can be used to qualify any structured cabling solution for high-speed transmission. The latest projects in his group involve the development of 2.5G/5GBASE-T, 25G/40GBASE-T as well as the next generation fiber offers for 50/100/200/400 Gbps network.  All of these Ethernet applications has been or are currently being developed in IEEE 802.3. Mr. Mei received his bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and Applied Mathematics from State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1995. He was a research assistant at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee for a year. In 1997, he received his master’s in engineering in Electrical Engineering from Cornell University.
