Lee Badman currently writes for Network Computing Magazine as Wireless and Mobility blogger, and has over twelve years of professional industry analysis under his belt. Published hundreds of times in Network Computing, Cabling Business Magazine, the Syracuse Post Standard, and other periodicals, Lee has done feature-length reviews on everything from IP-based KVM platforms to Wireless Network Management systems. He frequently provides opinion and perspective on industry trends, and has been known to call a spade a spade where hype has been applied a bit too vigorously.
Lee also teaches Networking classes and serves as Network Architect for Syracuse University, where he oversees a growing network of over 3,600 wireless access points. Lee administers systems built on Cisco, Meraki, Aerohive, Exalt, Bluesocket, and Bridgewave networking gear, and has laid hands on several other brands of hardware in his 15 years at the University. In his current role he also consults on any and all wireless technologies that may find their way onto campus.
With a love of technology partially spawned from a ten-year career in Electronic Warfare in the US Air Force, he’s a nerd through and through. Lee is an active Extra Class Amateur Radio operator (Call sign KI2K) and lately has a thing for turning e-Readers into Android tablets and building different antennas for receiving over-the-air TV signals.
