I have worked on some projects involving Mobile-IP, Ad-Hoc Networking,
IPv6, mesh networking, and AAA protocols.
I've also worked on projects involving miniaturization of
operating systems, parallel processing, and lots of
Unix systems administration. Unix systems have always been
great at networking, so I learned a lot about the Internet
(and people!) by administering communities of technical
professionals using networked computers.
I had accepted a position as
a startup delivering solutions for WiMax and LTE networks.
That was fun, especially because we were spreading
high-speed wireless access to more and more places.
Recently Wichorus was acquired by
Note: this page is terribly out of date.
There are many patents and publications that I'd like to include here.
Plus a lot of the Internet Drafts are out of date.
At least I figured out how to get the new book included!
Mobile Inter-networking with IPv6: Concepts, Principles and Practices
Mobile IP: Design Principles and Practice
Ad Hoc Networking
also, a chapter in
Mobility: Processes, Computers, and Agents
Current and recent projects:
I have been guest editor for special issues of various magazines, including:
Please note that some of the following may differ in
some respects from the actual articles, due to editorial
changes by journal staff.
