Cingular's Moe Mustafakeeps the network upMoe Mustafa is regional VP of network operations for the states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida and Alabama.He's based in Orlando, FL.The 400 people in his area install, maintain and engineer the Cingular network to ensure a high level of network performance.
"The customers get the best service, which means the system will always be available for their use," he says."The technology is evolving very rapidly.The trick is to simplify it to the point where our customers find it easy to use."
Mustafa has been involved with cellular since it first evolved from radio.He was born in Palestine, grew up in the Seattle, WA, area, and received his BSEE from the University of Washington (Seattle, WA) in 1978.
He joined GTE right out of college, taking advantage of the company's Engineer in Training rotation program to dip into many facets of telephony.He started as a radio engineer, in the early days before the FCC awarded licenses for cellular engineering."This whole thing evolved from radio," he says."It gives me a historical perspective."
He remembers the mobile telephone services that had to share the airways with many others."The phone were big boxes that cost about $3,000," he says."We've come a long way since then."
He moved into management at GTE, then was hired as director of operations at Bell South Mobility in 1994.He advanced to regional director for North Carolina, then general manager for Eastern Georgia and executive director for the Georgia Market Data/Internet Interface.Along the way, he earned an MBA at Florida Institute of Technology (Melbourne, FL).
Last fall, Bell South Mobility merged with Southern Bell (SBC Communications) to form Cingular Wireless.Mustafa took on his VP job this past January."This position requires the business acumen to run a market," he says.He was immediately involved in a major reorganization effort which he has found "hectic, but fun."
