The UMass News Office reports that University Distinguished Professor Lixin Gao of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department has collaborated with computer scientist Arun Venkataramani to land a a three-year, $1.2-million grant from the National Science Foundation to develop and test a method to improve interdomain routing. It is “the top-level protocol that holds the entire Internet together,” the two researchers explain. They add that these new routing strategies should improve fundamental robustness, security, and manageability and “benefit anyone who relies on the Internet today.” See News Office story: Using Cloud Resources to Dramatically Improve Internet Routing .
