Yates, Jennifer
1 AT&T Way
Bedminster, NJ
Subject matter expert in Service Quality Management, Network evolution, cross-layer networking

Jennifer Yates is an Assistant Vice President at AT&T Labs - Research, heading the Networking and Service Quality Management Research organization. The Networking and SQM Research org is focused on inventing, prototyping and driving new technologies for (1) enabling Operations transformation from a network to a service (or customer experience) focus (2) enabling new services, enhance reliability and/or radically change network costs, and (3)  addressing complex cross-layer networking issues.  Our innovative technologies are deployed across AT&T's networks, and we participate extensively within the broader Research community.

Jennifer received her PhD from The University of Melbourne, Australia, and a BE(hons) and BSc from the University of Western Australia.

 

 

Projects
Darkstar, Darkstar is a comprehensive network data resource and architecture that normalizes data from across AT&T networks and makes it easily accessible from one place.

DataDepot, DataDepot and its associated toolchain enable the fast construction and easy maintenance of very large real-time stream warehouses.

Awards
AT&T Fellow, 2012. For sustained contributions bridging network layers and management platforms to invent and deliver novel services and network management capabilities.

Science & Technology Medal, 2006. Honored for technical innovation and leadership in integration of IP and optical networks.

Victorian Photonics Network Achievement Award, 2004.

Technology Review 100 (TR 100) Top Young Innovators, 2003.
