He left AT&T soon after its merger with SBC in January 2006. Upon his departure, BusinessWeek called him “a critical player in maintaining AT&T’s status as a technology leader” (Dec. 30, 2005) and noted that he is “a bold, but pragmatic, visionary.” and The New York Times said: "Eslambolchi is “the technological strategist behind AT&T's ambitious turnaround plan to become a data transmission company selling an array of software products like network security systems”, 1/22/2005.

Dr. Eslambolchi served as Chief Technology Officer and advised its top leaders on the formulation and implementation of a strategic technology vision from 2001 to 2005. Early on, he predicted that IP would “eat everything” and advocated an architecture that would allow all services to run on IP and work together with connectivity to any device. His recent published book “2020 Vision” has set the foundation of communications industry over the next two decades and he now predicts Broadband Wireless will eat IP and Micro applications will dominate the industry over the next decade.
