An Informal Overview of Intel Research Cambridge

In this talk, I will informally describe the research agenda pursued by the new Intel Research lablet at the University of Cambridge: what work we intend to do in Cambridge, and our research interests. Research efforts we have started in the lab include work in Optical Systems, Network Monitoring, Virtual Channel Processors, and Languages for Packet Processing.

Christophe Diot received his PhD in Computer Science on January 30, 1991, in Grenoble (FRANCE). During this period, he worked on high performance implementations of Transport protocols. He also took part in the design of XTP, and in its hardware implementation, the Protocol Engine. He then joined the RODEO project at INRIA Sophia Antipolis in October 1993. RODEO worked on the definition of new control mechanisms and implementation techniques to allow multimedia and time-constrained applications to efficiently use high-speed heterogeneous networks. From October 1998 to April 2003, he worked with Sprint Advanced Technology Labs, where he built a new research group to investigate how to make backbone management easier and performance higher. His group designed a unique measurement infrastructure made of GPS-synchronized packet traces, routing events, SNMP data, and active probing. The knowledge extracted from these data allowed them to design tools, models, and traffic engineering mechanisms, most of them used by Sprintlink.
