Seminars at the Faculty of Informatics

Accelerating Next Generation Networking Devices

The Faculty of Informatics is pleased to announce a seminar given by Chad Meiners

DATE: Wednesday, May 26th 2010
PLACE: USI Università della Svizzera italiana, room A13, Red building (Via G. Buffi 13)
TIME: 09.30

ABSTRACT:
Today's internet and intranets rely on an increasing number of networking devices such as routers, firewalls, and intrusion prevention systems to provide required network services. Furthermore, as the number of application protocols and the network bandwidth increases, these networking devices are presented with increasing workloads. This talk will present some of the problems facing modern networking devices and present several algorithmic and architectural solutions to these problems.

BIO:
Chad Meiners graduated with his Ph.D. in Computer Science by Michigan State University in 2009 where he focused on applying algorithmic techniques towards solving network packet classification problems. He is currently working at Michigan State University as a research associate where he has continued his work in packet classification and has expanded his research into developing fast and efficient deep packet inspection algorithms and architectures. Chad was named the Outstanding Graduate Student in the Michigan State University Department of Computer Science and Engineering in 2009.
