Some weeks ago, I was cockily boasting about 45% of the visits to this website were over IPv6, and nudged the last 54% to join us here in the 21th century. Then came Christmas, and the world (myself included) was off on vacation – and look what happened: IPv6 access dropped considerable, so that now… Read More »
ACN students will never look at the 128 bits of an IPv6 address the same way !!! They have discovered that behind IPv6, lies a very active innovation and research track with applications in many fields (data centers, virtualization, video production and distributions, … ). The presentation was given by Mark Townsley (Cisco & Ecole Polytechnique) who is leading… Read More »
Ecole Polytechnique is, with our colleagues from Telecom-ParisTech, offering the international, English-language, Research-Masters program in “Advanced Communication Networks” – among friends, simply called “ACN”. The ACN program aims high: to train future technology visionaries, engineers and leaders – in other words, to develop active players in the field of networking technology innovation and research An ACN… Read More »
The Future Internet course has started last December. The course will consists of a few research seminars, and mini-projects, presenting a live demo or recent advances in an area of interest. Here are the list of subjects selected by the students this year: Network Telemetry & DDOS (with Cisco). CORD (Central Office re-architected as a Datacenter)… Read More »
My colleague Bruno Martinaud shared an invitation with me, to a public event that he is organising at Ecole Polytechnique – n event, which looks rather interesting and which (space permitting) is open to anyone interested. Bruno directs the “Technology Venture Master Program” at Ecole Polytechnique, within which he organises a series of such Master Classes – in partnership with the Direction for… Read More »
This semester, I will be co-teaching the course “Internet Protocol Success” with my colleague Mark Townsley, to 3rd year and M1-ACN students at Ecole Polytechnique, and we will be expertly assisted by Jean-Louis Rougier who comes out from Telecom-ParisTech to lend us a hand with this. “Internet Protocol Success” is almost a soft-skills-course: the imperative is… Read More »
My colleagues and I have finished grading the homework, exams, etc., for a course I teach at Ecole Polytechnique called “Introduction to Concurrent and Communicating Systems. It seems that the “roujes” from X2014 decided to kick some serious a** and completely change the grade distribution from previous years. Well done gals & guys!
The ACN program includes a major scientific project to allow “learning through real research“: students will be anononducting a real research project, in a part-time apprenticeship with one or more tutors from academia or/and industry. The projects this year range from the “Internet of Things” over “advanced protocol security” to “networks for large data centres” – a few samples of… Read More »
