Peter Walker
Peter Walker Strategic Board Member Peter Walker has had over 38 years experience in the telecommunications industry and is widely recognised as a key expert in regulation. He spent 22 years at British Telecom in a range of senior management posts involved in network engineering during the key period when the networks were transitioning from analogue to digital technology. He then moved to become the Director of Technology at Oftel (1993-2003). This has given him unique experience within the regulatory environment during the period when much of today's regulatory system was developed, as well as insight into the way that regulators think. As part of Oftel's senior team, he worked on all the key policy developments, gaining valuable experience of the economic, legal and accounting aspects of regulation in addition to his core engineering skills. He is now an independent consultant, specialising in telecommunications technology, regulation and public policy. His expertise covers not only the regulatory framework as a whole, but also detailed knowledge of specialist issues such as interconnection, numbering (including portability), carrier pre-selection, broadband access (including Local Loop Unbundling), network resilience, and how regulation impacts new technologies such as Next Generation Networks and Voice over IP
