I am an Ericsson Research employee at the Advanced Signaling Research Laboratory within the Nomadic Lab. There I work as research scientist in the Service Layer Technology area, mainly involved in standardization and prototyping issues related to IP Multimedia architectures (IMS), VoIP and Web2.0 issues.

During the last 10 years I have got my PhD in networking focused on the Internet transport protocols and I've been working in R&D in various positions, ranging from implementation and specification to various management positions.

Currently I am working on Communication Service Architecture(s), ranging from classical telecom services, IMS and Web2.0 social network services using Ajax and Widget technologies.

I am also active in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), which designs and maintains the core protocols of Internet, where I am mainly involved in the SIP related working groups and I am author or co-author of RFC 5279, 5509,  5547, 6202, 6446 and several Internet-Drafts.


I am an italian engineer from Nocera Inferiore, a town closed to Salerno, the Amalfi coast and the metropolitan city of Napoli. Since the 2005 I moved to Helsinki (Finland) to join the Nomadiclab.

I joined Ericsson, the Swedish telephone mobile network manufacturer, in 2000 to work in Italy for a research laboratory known as CoRiTeL (Consorzio Ricerche sulle Telecomunicazioni), starting to be involved in SIP, VoIP, and 3G research areas. I was also involved in several Ericsson internal projects.

Previously, from 1999 to 2000 I worked in SchlumbergerSema, site of Naples (Italy), in Telecommunication Area as developper and system integrator of GSM billing and prepaid services.

I received my master degree in Computer Science Engineering from the Napoli University "Federico II" defending a thesis on artificial intelligence and fuzzy logic.

    Degree thesis: "Optimal algorithms and management of the uncertainties to acknowledgement of a picture".

In 2006 I received my PhD in networking from Napoli University "Federico II".

    PhD thesis: "Protocols and architecture issues in service design for the next generation of mobile communication".

In April 2009 I have been appointed as IEEE Senior Member.


My main research interests are:

  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS)

  • SIP & Web Services

  • Web Communication, Web 2.0 & Social Networking

  • Conferencing

  • Instant Messaging and Presence (SIMPLE, XMPP, and interworking between them)

  • Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP)

  • TCP

  • IPTV






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

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
