Until recently, Scott was Divisional CEO of eDial, a division of Alcatel. He came to Alcatel via eDial, Inc., which he co-founded and co-led as EVP and CTO from its inception through its acquisition by Alcatel in 2004. Before eDial, Scott was Principal Technologist and Group Manager of IP Networking at VocalTec Communications, Ltd., where he led the company's standards development program by creating new IP technologies. He was deeply involved in the international standards processes which led to SIP and H.323, and served as founding co-chair of the VoIP Forum, founding working group chair of the ETSI TIPHON project, and co-editor of the PINT protocol and co-chair of the ENUM working group within the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). He served on the board of directors of the International Multimedia Teleconferencing Consortium (IMTC).

He holds several patents in the area of Internet telephony and packet communication technologies, along with publications in various areas of pure and applied mathematics and Internet-based technologies.
