About me

I studied computer science at the HTWS Zittau/Goerlitz in Germany. After spending one year in the computer science department at Humboldt University in Berlin I joined the Communications Division in the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering at the University of Strathclyde in June 1997.In September 2000 I moved to the Department of Computing Science and Mathematics at Stirling University. I am a member of the Communications and Services research group within the department. I'm the academic supervisor in a Knowledge Transfer Partnership with Sysnet, a local SME, focusing on developing a Peer-to-Peer overlay for mobile handsets. I am also a co-investigator in the ESRC project Interlife where Iam working on using Peer-to-Peer networks with 3D virtual worlds in an educational context. I'm also also a co-investigator in the MATCH project, focusing on integrating different network technologies for care in the home. I was leading an effort providing a proof-of-concept demonstrating the integration of digital pen and paper with networked appliances.I have been for extended research visits to Telcordia Technologies, NJ, USA, a leading presence in home automation, and Avaya Labs Research, NJ, USA, a leading internet telephony technology provider. I'm a Senior Member of the IEEE, and Series Editor for Consumer Communication and Networking of the IEEE Communications Magazine. I am also currently serving as TPC Chair of the IEEE Consumer Communications and Networking Conference (CCNC) 2011.I hold a PhD from the University of Strathclyde.

Managing Distributed Feature Interactions in Enterprise SIP Application Servers. IEEE International Conference on Communication (ICC), 2009. ICC '09
IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers)

Several trends in SIP application server deployments in large scale telephony environments exacerbate the classic problem of feature interaction : use of distributed feature servers, mixing of legacy and green-field feature servers, and the co-existence of multiple third-party feature implementations provisioned in the same environment. Next-generation SIP application servers will include an application router (AR) to provide more application control over feature sequencing. As we discuss here, the AR can be augmented to incorporate feature interaction detection and resolution logic. We describe a novel design for run-time feature interaction detection and resolution in an environment of distributed feature servers using a SIP application server with application routing function, such as that defined in JSR 289. The approach is based on the algorithm of the Kolberg-Magill (K-M) method for feature interaction detection. Here we extend the notation of the algorithm to cover advanced call control services, enable the algorithm to work in topologies involving B2BUAs (Back-to-Back User Agents) and SBCs (session border controllers), and test the approach with a substantial feature set of 32 features found in large enterprise solutions.
