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".
Nowadays I live in Helsinki and I work as senior scientist at NomadicLab "MultiMedia Technology" branch, which is part of Ericsson Research in Finland. There I am 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).
Currently I am also serving as
- co-chair of the Application Area Working Group (Appsawg), the BiDirectional or Server-Initiated HTTP (HyBi) (in charge of WebSocket protocol standardization) and the SIP Overload Control (soc) working groups within the Internet Engineering Task Force: the principal body engaged in the development of new Internet standard specifications based on "rough consensus and running code";
- I am also part of the IETF Applications Area Directorate
- 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) Internet protocols;
- Multimedia, NAT traversal and security;
- Web Architecture and protocols, WebSocket, Web Real Time Communications (WebRTC) and SPDY/HTTP 2.0;
- Internet of Things (IoT), specifically Web of Things using 6LowPan, Roll and CoAP protocols;
- Network Neutrality
