June 30, 2005

Along with HP Labs, Princeton, George Mason U. and U. C. Berkeley and industrial partners, Assistant Professor Ben Zhao received a DARPA funding for a proposal to improve reliability of TCP/IP in rugged and lossy environments. The project includes both hardware and software routing components, where the software routing layer is based on Ben’s ongoing work on resilient routing using peer-to-peer overlay networks. With options, the proposal lasts for 3.5 years with total funding of $6.5M. HP Press release here.
