Background: Luca Muscariello


Luca Muscariello is a senior researcher on future networks at Orange Labs, former France Telecom R&D. He graduated in
Telecommunications Engineering from Politecnico di Torino, Italy, in 2002. He holds a Ph.D. in Telecommunications Engineering from Politecnico di Torino, his graduate research was performed in the area of Internet traffic measurement, characterization and modeling at Politecnico di Torino, France Telecom R&D and at VTT in Helsinki. His current research interests include performance evaluation of communication networks, protocol design and optimization as well as network measurements and experimentation. He has filed 10 patents and published more than 30 technical papers in major conferences and journals on communication networks like IEEE INFOCOM, ACM SIGMETRICS, IEEE ICNP and IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking. He has been part of several program committees like IEEE INFOCOM, ITC and was program co-chair of Valuetools 2013. He is general co-chair of the first ACM ICN conference to be held in Paris. He is a senior member of the IEEE and SEE and a member of the ACM.


Our main research focus is on application of NDN to access networks, back-haul network, home networks.
Orange is a Tier 3, Tier 2 and Tier 1 ISP as well as one of the largest MNO worldwide. We are very much interested in
radio mobile applications. Alcatel-Lucent is a major vendor in all of these markets.

NDN Plans:

We plan to test some of the protocols we designed and implemented already in our running testbeds
including adaptive forwarding, flow control, hop-by-hop interest shaping and distributed caching mechanisms.
Our main research focus is on evaluating the performance gains of these protocols.
