Teaching

21st Century Networks (Postgraduate)

This module includes an in-depth undestanding of the key issues in next generation, all-packet networking. Topics include: techniques to make use of multiple broadband, quality of service-enabled transport; support for generalized mobility; ubiquitous provision of services to users; core network consolidation; implications of migration of ""legacy services"", e.g. voice from a circuit-switched architecture (PSTN) to VoIP; cable convergence; separation of the transport portion of the network and the services that run on top of that transport.

21st Century Networks (Undergraduate)

This module provides an in-depth understanding of the key issues in next generation, all-IP networks. As the module provides timely material, it will be subject to constant but minor evolution. The topics covered include: converged network infrastructures including wired and wireless access networks, IPv6, network virtualization, network design and engineering, Internet traffic and applications, cloud and content delivery, economics and privacy.

Cloud Computing ()

Cloud Computing has transformed how services and applications are delivered. Thanks to the rise of virtualisation technology and new programming paradigms, applications can quickly be delivered to a growing audience, without the need to physically own and configure the infrastructure. The Cloud Computing module will cover the main characteristics of Cloud Computing, including the enabling technologies, main software and service paradigms underpinning it, as well as related aspects, namely security, privacy, ethical concerns

Research

Research Interests:

My main research interest is on the economics of interdomain traffic, and encompasses from peering, transit and other types  of interconnections to the underlying economics of the Internet architecture.
