Join Us for November's Faculty Dinner Series
This is your opportunitiy to learn more about Professor H. Jonathan Chao and discuss your own interests or projects.
Additionally Professor Chao will present on two research topics:
- Data Center Network Designs
- Medical Implants for preventing epileptic seizures
About Professor H. Jonathan Chao
H. Jonathan Chao is Department Head and Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Polytechnic Institute of New York University, Brooklyn, NY, where he joined in January 1992. He has been doing research in the areas of terabit switches/routers, network security, network on the chip, and quality of service control in high-speed networks. He holds 34 patents with 13 pending and has published over 180 journal and conference papers. He has also served as a consultant for various companies, such as Huawei, Lucent, NEC, and Telcordia.
During 2000–2001, he was Co-Founder and CTO of Coree Networks, NJ, where he led a team to implement a multi-terabit MPLS (Multi-Protocol Label Switching) switch router with carrier-class reliability. From 1992 to 1999, he taught short courses 3 times a year in the subjects of SONET, ATM, IP, MPLS, switche/router designs, to industry people through UC Berkeley and Oxford University’s continuing education programs. From 1985 to 1992, he was a Member of Technical Staff at Telcordia, where he was involved in transport and switching system architecture designs and ASIC implementations, such as the world’s first SONET-like Framer chip, ATM Layer chip, Sequencer chip (the first chip handling packet scheduling), and ATM switch chip. From 1977 to 1981, he was a Senior Engineer at Telecommunication Labs of Taiwan performing circuit designs for a digital telephone switching system.
Prof. Chao is a Fellow of the IEEE for his contributions to the architecture and application of VLSI circuits in high-speed packet networks. He received the Telcordia Excellence Award in 1987. He is a co-recipient of the 2001 Best Paper Award from the IEEE Transaction on Circuits and Systems for Video Technology. He coauthored three networking books, Broadband Packet Switching Technologies – A Practical Guide to ATM Switches and IP Routers (New York: Wiley, 2001), Quality of Service Control in High-Speed Networks (New York: Wiley, 2001), and High-Performance Switches and Routers (New York: Wiley, 2007).
Prof. Chao received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in electrical engineering from National Chiao Tung University, Taiwan, and his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from Ohio State University.
