Media Streaming and Cable TV Systems
Our current R&D focuses on bringing cloud-platforms to CABLE TV and viceversa, including IPTV and
OTT Delivery methods from cloud-based storage and streaming systems. As such I have developed the Mediamplify Platfom that includes:
- Mediaplug technology to deliver content from cloud to cable systems
- Mobile apps
- HTML5 Players
- API backend
- Cloud storage
- Auto-generated sites
- Backend for billing, sales
Videos of Work Product in Streaming / Media
Sample videos created by our platform.
As a great beginning in 1999, I joined the High-Performance Computing and Simulation Research Lab, creating new and advanced HPC platforms, now the same principles apply to cloud-computing. The advancements in cloud allowed me to create a full-fletched lab allocated at EQUINIX.
Mobile and RF Wireless R&D
- MobileCAD has been updated and modified to work with 4G/LTE as a prototype.
- Research and Development, Rapid Mobile Technologies Inc (Boca Raton, FL) July 2010-2014. N
- Research Assistant, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL, January‟00-August‟02
Experience: I investigated the effects of handoff and network mobility at different
vehicular speeds. I used Mobile network simulation and emulation were important tools
to study Mobile-IP and Layer-2/3 mobility protocols. I developed RAMON, Rapid
Mobile Network Emulator, a device that emulates network layer mobility and
programmatically replicates mobility conditions varying from signal strength, packet
delay, BER, and speeds. RAMON uses real 802.11b Access Points, omni-directional
antennas, embedded computers (e.g. PC-104) and custom-build control circuitry.
RAMON also used a .NET interface to automatically create network topologies to be
emulated. In depth routing protocols explored, IP tunnels, and low-level network device
driver adjustments. I conducted extensive simulation work on ns-2
Network Management and Adaptive Sampling (AI with Fuzzy Logic)
- Research Assistant, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL September„97-December„99
Experience: I joined thee High-performance Computing and Simulation Research Lab.
During my thesis work, I applied Fuzzy Logic in Network Management, focusing on how
adaptive sampling could reduce captured statistics without loosing important network
behavior. Additionally, I researched ATM networks, SNMP (Simple Network
Management Protocol), Virtual Interface Architecture (VIA) over Myrinet, CORBA, and
High-performance Cluster Computing topics.
Wireless Power Management
- Program Manager Intern, Microsoft Corporation, Redmond, WA May’01-September’01
Experience: As an intern, I investigated self-similarity and power management
algorithms for Wireless Networks. I modeled the method how service time per packet could be estimated and used for QoS in ad-hoc and infrastructure networks.
- Network Engineer: Radiografica Costarricense, R&D, Costa Rica. January‟95-July‟95
Experience: I developed a microcontroller-based (x8051 and RUPI-51 micro-controllers)
system to measure X.25 and PBX data traffic, Windows-based GUI, and X.25 frame
