Welcome to my site,

where I keep some track of the things that I write and other stuff...



My name is Salvatore Loreto and I am originally from Italy.

I spent my childhood among Salerno, Napoli, Florence and Nocera Inferiore.
I went to high school (Liceo Classico G.B. Vico) in Nocera Inferiore (a town in Italy closed to Salerno, the Amalfi coast and the metropolitan city of Napoli) and obtained a Master Degree in Computer Science Engineering from the Napoli University "Federico II".

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Networking in the fall 2006 from the Napoli University "Federico II".

I have been working for several years in Helsinki as Master scientist at NomadicLab "MultiMedia Technology" branch, which is part of Ericsson Research in Finland. There I was involved both in standardization, research projects and strategy related to the Internet in general and in particular VoIP, Media & Web Communication and Internet of Things (IoT).

In 2014 I graduated EMBA at Bocconi University in Milan.

Nowadays I live in Stockholm and I work in Ericsson as Strategic Product Manager in the Media Delivery business line, part of the Ericsson Business Unit Media. I am still involved both in standardization and strategy related to the Internet, Media and Web Delivery.


Currently I am also serving as

  • Associate Technical Editor and Design & Implementation (D&I) Series editor within the board.

    IEEE Communications Magazine is the flagship monthly publication of the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) and is distributed to all ComSoc members (ComSoc is a professional group for communications technologists, with approximately 45,000 members worldwide).
    The D&I Series is included in the Magazine every six months or so and publishes articles that specifically address industry member’s needs for information that will help them build next-generation communications products and services.


  • Technical Editor with the IEEE IoT Journal (IoT-J). The IEEE IoT-J publishes articles on the latest advances, as well as review articles, on the various aspects of Internet of Things (IoT).


My research interests include but are not limited to

  • Cloud and Software Defined Networks (SDN)
  • application (e.g. HTTP), signaling (e.g. SIP/SDP, XMPP) and transport (e.g. UDP/TCP/SCTP/QUIC) Internet protocols;
  • Multimedia, NAT traversal and security;
  • Web Architecture and protocols, WebSocket, Web Real Time Communications (WebRTC), SPDY and HTTP 2.0;
  • Internet of Things (IoT), specifically Web of Things using 6LowPan, Roll and CoAP protocols;
  • Network Neutrality



Web-Based Communications

IEEE Communications Magazine

The web has shifted away from a document based paradigm to a more distributed and collaborative form of communication.Whereas once the web server was the center of interaction, in today's model, the user and the browser have replaced the web server as the nexus of communications.

...Collaboration between the IETF and W3C also proceeds on extending the web architecture to allow browsers to natively support interactive peer to peer communications in the form of voice- video- or gaming-sessions, and document collaboration in real time. In such architectures, browsers become the source and sink of both media packets that flow directly from a browser to another while web servers are only involved during the "setup" phase of the communication.


NWeSP 2012

The conference will bring together the world's most respected authorities on semantic web, Web based services, Web applications, Web enhanced business information systems, e-education specialists, Information security, and other Web related technologies. The aim of NWeSP'12 is to serve as a forum to present current and future work as well as to exchange research ideas in this field.

As a member of the Programme Committee
I want invite you to consider to submit your studies and research here: CFP

IEEE Com Magazine: Design & Implementations Series VIII

Welcome to the eighth installment of the Design and Implementation (D&I) Series. The goal of the D&I Series is to facilitate knowledge transfer between industry-oriented engineers and scientists...
This installment’s two articles cover three of the most active areas in telecommunications today: cloud computing, IP multimedia subsystem (IMS), and wireless sensor networks (WSNs). more

Il Futuro del Web

“Il Web non é morto sta semplicemente crescendo e cambiando, insieme al suo protocollo HTTP che sta diventando il mezzo di accesso a tutte le applicazioni presenti nel Cloud” more

IEEE Com Magazine: Design & Implementations Series VII

Welcome to the seventh installment of the Design and Implementation (D&I) Series:  building next-gen applications enabled by broadband wireless.

The goal of the D&I Series is to facilitate knowledge transfer between industry-oriented engineers and scientists. To differentiate from other peer-reviewed, academically rigorous articles on communications technologies, the focus of D&I articles is primarily on the Lessons Learned information gained while designing, implementing, and deploying new communications products, services, and solutions. more
