The MobilityFirst project is aimed at design and validation of comprehensive new architecture for the next-generation Internet. As part of this context I focused my research in name based services for clients and network components. Moreover I am the lead student developer and maintainer of the source base of the architecture prototype. As part of this prototyping effort I have worked on the following components:
Radio Access Network virtualization has been a topic of growing interest in the research community. Within this topic two software components were developed:
Dynamic Adaptive Streaming over HTTP has been increasingly chosen as the standard go to solution thanks to its easiness of implementation, as it relies on the already existing HTTP infrastructure of webservers, proxies and caches. In this project we explore how to enhance the experienced quality of end-users by relying on the additional features introduced in the network with particular focus on wireless and mobile environments.
As part of the project I worked on the following components:
The COAST (Content Aware Searching retrieval and sTreaming) project aims to build a Future Content-Centric Network (FCN) overlay architecture able to intelligently and efficiently link billions of content sources to billions of content consumers. As part of the project I designed and developed an hybrid P2P/CDN content network. The prototype was developed using Python and was deployed using Amazon EC2 services and the PlanetLab research testbed.
