Rouskas & Dutta Collaborate with RTI on Next Generation Internet Research
Drs. George Rouskas and Rudra Dutta have collaborated with the Research Triangle Institute (RTI) to obtain funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) of $400,000 for their research proposal titled “NeTS-FIND: The SILO Architecture for Services Integration, Control, and Optimization for the Future Internet.”
The RTI research team includes two Ph.D graduates from NC State, Drs. Ilia Baldine (who studied under Rouskas) and Arnold Bragg.
This is one of a very limited number of NSF awards this year targeted at defining what the architecture of the Internet will look like in 20 years.
The award, which includes $220,000 for the NCSU researchers and $180,000 for the RTI researchers, will run from September 15, 2006 through August 31, 2008.
Research Abstract - The objective of this project is to formulate a formal framework for a non-layered internetworking architecture in which complex protocols are composed from elemental functional blocks in a configurable manner, and to demonstrate its potential by developing proof-of-concept prototypes.
