Title: 404 Not Found? A Quest for DTN Applications [PDF] [SLIDES]


Jörg Ott is Professor for Networking Technology with a focus on Protocols, Services and Telecommunications Software in the Department of Communications and Networking in the School of Electrical Engineering at Aalto University. From 1997 through early 2005, he was Assistant Professor in the Computer Networks group at the Universität Bremen and member of the Center for Computing Technologies (TZI). From 1992 through 1997 he worked as a research staff member with teaching responsibilities at TU Berlin. He received his Doctor in Engineering (Dr.-Ing.) in 1997 from Technische Universität Berlin. His research interests are in Internet technologies, protocol design, and protocol and system architectures for multipoint communications, content distribution, IP telephony, and multimedia conferencing. His current research focus is on communication in challenged networks, particularly on disruption/delay-tolerant networking. He is co-chair of the DTN Research Group in the IRTF. In the IETF, was co-chair of the MMUSIC working group from 1997 through 2009 and co-chaired the SIP working group from its foundation in 1999 to October 2002. In the ITU-T, he was one of the core designers of H.323 from the very beginning in 1995 and editor of two of its Annexes. Jörg has co-founded Tellique Kommunikationstechnik GmbH in 1998 which has provided solutions for IP multicast-based content distribution and performance enhancements for satellite and other challenged networks. He is co-founder of Lysatiq GmbH which provides solutions for disconnection tolerance and performance optimizations for challenged networks and mobile Internet access.
