Charles E. Perkins

I have worked on some projects involving Mobile-IP, Ad-Hoc Networking, IPv6, mesh networking, and AAA protocols. I've also worked on projects involving miniaturization of operating systems, parallel processing, and lots of Unix systems administration. Unix systems have always been great at networking, so I learned a lot about the Internet (and people!) by administering communities of technical professionals using networked computers.

I had accepted a position as Technical Fellow, with WiChorus Corporation, a startup delivering solutions for WiMax and LTE networks. That was fun, especially because we were spreading high-speed wireless access to more and more places. Recently Wichorus was acquired by Tellabs Inc.

Note: this page is terribly out of date. There are many patents and publications that I'd like to include here. Plus a lot of the Internet Drafts are out of date. At least I figured out how to get the new book included!



Mobile Inter-networking with IPv6: Concepts, Principles and Practices
Mobile IP: Design Principles and Practice
Ad Hoc Networking
also, a chapter in Mobility: Processes, Computers, and Agents
