I am a quite active contributor to the IETF (Internet Engineering Task Force) where I am currently serving as co-chair of the HyBi (BiDirectional or Server-Initiated HTTP) and SoC (Sip Overload Control) Working Groups. I am also part of the IETF Applications Area Directorate.


List of RFCs (Requests for Comments) I have authored or co-authored.

  • "Additional Policies for the Partially Reliable Stream Control Transmission Protocol Extension " , RFC7496

  • "Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) Event Notification Extension for Notification Rate Control", RFC6446
  • "Known Issues and Best Practices for the Use of Long Polling and Streaming in Bidirectional HTTP", RFC6202

  • "A Session Description Protocol (SDP) Offer/Answer Mechanism to Enable File Transfer", RFC5547

  • "Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) Registration of Instant Messaging and Presence DNS SRV RRs for the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)", RFC5509
  • "A Uniform Resource Name (URN) Namespace for the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP)", RFC5279


List of my currently active Internet Drafts.

    WebRTC - CFP

    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
