A graduate of Aalborg University, Denmark (M.Sc., PhD – civilingeniør, cand.polyt), Thomas has, since 2004 been on faculty at Ecole Polytechnique, France’s premiere technical and scientific university, where he holds the Cisco “Internet of Everything” academic chaire. At Ecole Polytechnique, Thomas leads the computer networking research group. He has developed, and coordinates, the computer networking curriculum, and co-coordinates the Masters program in “Advanced Communication Networks” (ACN). He has published more than 70 peer-reviewed academic publications (which have attracted more than 10000 citations) and has authored and edited 20 IETF, Standards, has consulted for the development of IEEE 802.11s, and has contributed the routing portions of the recently ratified ITU-T G.9903 standard for G3-PLC networks – upon which, e.g., the current SmartGrid & ConnectedEnergy initiatives are built. He serves on the scientific council of ThinkSmartGrids (formerly: SmartGridsFrance).

A thousand thanks to Pierre Pfister, X08, for his exciting guest lecture at Ecole Polytechnique, discussing his work on “zero-touch home networking”.
It’s always wonderful when our alumni returns, and talk about their work — and on how their careers took shape after graduating.
This paper addresses the issues of automatic address and prefix configuration of MANET routers. Specifically, the paper analyzes the differences between “classic IP networks” and MANETs, emphasizing the interface, link, topology, and addressing assumptions present in “classic IP networks”. The…
Unsurprisingly, Gaetan Feige, from Cisco France, is killing it at Ecole Polytechnique, talking Open Innovation and Co-Innovation to our Executive Masters students
Unsurprisingly, Gaetan Feige, from Cisco France, is killing it at Ecole Polytechnique, talking Open Innovation and Co-Innovation to our Executive Masters students. Incredibly interesting to hear how he, and Cisco, untertakes, co-innovation and open innovation as part of the Cisco…
…it’s either very bad, or very honest, advertisement, when a grocery store explicitly says that they sell wonderful “food” (including the quotation marks):
This paper introduces extensions and applications of depth-first forwarding (DFF)-a data forwarding mechanism for use in unreliable networks such as sensor networks and Mobile Ad hoc NETworks with limited computational power and storage, low-capacity channels, device mobility, etc. Routing protocols…
Paper: OSPF-style Database Exchange and Reliable Synchronization in the Optimized Link State Routing Protocol
The Optimized Link-State Routing protocol (OLSR) is a proactive link-state routing protocol. While similar to the well-known Internet routing protocol OSPF, OLSR is designed to be simple, and to maintain connec- tivity in face of highly dense and dynamic networks,…
