Technologies and Protocols for Future Internet: Mobility, Security, and QoS
Prof. Bharat Doshi, Gupta Endowed Chair Professor, ECE Department, University of Massachusetts at Amherst
Date & Time: January 18, 2006 15:30
Venue: EE Seminar Hall
In the last century, we have witnessed three major success stories in people to people, people to things, and things to things communication: Telephony and transmission infrastructure; The Internet; and Wireless. These have changed our lives in major ways. The future holds increasing convergence of the three, increasingly pervasive computing and communication, increasingly wireless access, and increasingly more mission critical applications over the converged Internet. These pose significant challenges to the Internet architecture and protocols. In this talk, we discuss some of these challenges and some promising approaches.
