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).

This specification describes an extension to the Optimized Link State Routing Protocol version 2 (OLSRv2) to support multiple routing topologies, while retaining interoperability with OLSRv2 routers that do not implement this extension. This specification updates RFCs 7188 and 7631 by…
After having played around with the simulator…. ….and with its smaller sibling… We finally got our two NetFPGA SUME delivered, fresh from the manufacturer. Very excited – let the science begin 😉
Paper: Digital Signatures for Admittance Control in the Optimized Link State Routing Protocol version 2
Public community Mobile Ad Hoc NETworks (MANETs), such as the “Funkfeuer” or “Freifunk” networks, scale up to several hundreds of routers, connecting users with each other, and with the Internet. As MANETs are typically operated over wireless channels (e.g. WiFi),…
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…
