Andrea Detti

Andrea Detti (PhD) is a professor of the Department of Electronic Engineering of the University of Rome “Tor Vergata”. His research activity spans on different topics in the area of computer networks and copes with framework design, analytical modeling, performance evaluation through simulation and test-bed. He is co-author of more than 50 papers on journals and conference proceedings, mainly regarding information-centric, software-defined, overlay, wireless and optical networks. Currently is the research area is focused on Information-Centric-Network (ICN), Software Defined Networks (SDN). He is guest editor of two special issues about Information-Centric-Networking for Elsevier Computer Network and Journal of Internet Technology. He served as reviewers of numerous journal and conference (mainly ACM, IEEE, Elsevier).

Andrea Detti has worked and works on the several competitive international projects. Some of them are:
EU H2020  BONVOYAGE 2015/2017 (ICN Travel Centric Services), EU-JP FP7 GreenICN 2013/2015 (Energy Efficient ICN), EU FP7 2013/2014 CONFINE (coordinator of two proposals admitted to the funding within the first and second open-call, ICN and SDN topics), EU FP7 2012/2013 OFELIA (ICN over SDN), FP7 (2010/2013) CONVERGENCE (pub-sub ICN), EU FP7 2010/2013 FLAVIA (Virtualizable wireless future Internet), EU FP6 2004/2005 E2R (End-to-end reconfigurability), EU FP7 2006/2008 SMS (Simple Mobile Service), etc. Furthermore, since 2006 Andrea Detti is scientific coordinator of several industrial projects (funded by Telecom Italia and SSI/Finmeccanica), which regard the support of data-centric publish-subscribe paradigm over mobile ad-hoc networks (MANET), Delay Tolerant Network (DTN) and cellular network.


Internet Technologies and Protocols (II) (9 CFU):

The course deals with novel networking paradigms with special focus to distributed solutions to control the transferring of data in the network. Specifically, we consider: the deployment of network connection with guaranteed quality of service (IP QoS); Internet intradomain (OSPF) and interdomain (BGP) routing; MPLS traffic engineering;  the deployment of virtual private network for spatially distributed companies (Virtual Private Networks); massive distribution of multimedia contents (Content Delivery Network)
distributed infrastructure for user to user data dissemination (Peer to Peer).
The teaching faces algorithms, protocols, technologies and performances. Furthermore, more than fifty percent of the course is for laboratory experience with Linux and Cisco Routers, during which students “make real” on their laptop the theoretical lectures.

Mobile Wireless Network (9 CFU):

Mobile Wireless Networking is a course providing a comprehensive treatment of theoretical concepts and network technologies supporting modern wireless communications. Course topics includes both Radio Cellular Networks (with major focus on 4G systems) and IP Mobile Networks (Mobile IP, WiFi and Mobile Ad Hoc/Mesh Networks). Some theoretical aspects are supported by laboratory experiments based on Linux OS.  The course program includes: Wireless physical layer. Radio Planning. Multiple Access. GSM/EDGE/UMTS. LTE. Mobile IP. WiFi Networks. Mobile AdHoc Network. Wireless MESH Networks. (Delay Tolerant Networks). (Sensor Networks).

Cloud Computing and Networking (6 CFU):

The cloud computing and networking course explores the challenges of cloud infrastructures and applications. Fundamentals  of cloud computing will be considered, including virtualizations and hypervisors, distributed storage, data center networking, virtual networking, Software Defined Network  and Open Flow, etc. Cloud and data center architectures will be discussed with special reference to the OpenStack solutions. The course also focus on cloud programming interfaces used to build applications for the cloud. Most of  theoretical lectures are supported by laboratory experience mainly focused on OpenStack and OpenvSwitch.The course program includes: Introduction to cloud computing. Virtualization. Distributed Storage. Virtual Lan. Software Defined Networking, OpenFlow and OpenVSwitch.  OpenStack. Data Center Networking. Cloud API.
