Pascal Thubert

R&D Principal Engineer
Participates in 1 Session

Pascal is a networking expert who spent ten years with the IBM networking hardware division prior to moving to the Cisco Technology Center in 2000 where he conducted research, standardization and development on Network Mobility. Recently, he joined the IP Engineering team that designs and implements IPv6 in the Cisco IOS software. Pascal is contributing to the evolution of IPv6 in its wireless sensors, mesh and mobile applications, promoting NEMO, MANEMO, 6LoWPAN and ROLL technologies. He participated to a number of books, white papers, RFCs with the Internet Engineering Task Force and specification with the ISA100 

At Cisco, as Principal Engineer, Pascal participates to the evolution of Deterministic Networks (DetNet) across the board, and in particular in low power lossy networks (IoT) with 6TiSCH. Now within Chief Technology and Architecture Officer organization.

Pascal has over 100 patents making him among the top ten Cisco patents holders.

His standardisation work:

• Co-Chair of 6TiSCH and LPWAN at the IETF. 

• 11 RFCs, multiple Internet-drafts in working groups related to IOT and Deterministic Networking.

• Network Mobility for IPv6 (used in 3GPP2) 2002 - 2011

• Coauthor of RFC 3963 (NEMO); also RFC 4887, 4888, 4889, 6276.

 Initiated Distributed Mobility Management with global HAHA

• Wireless Mesh and Low Power networking 2009 - Now

• Editor of RFC 6550 (RPL), also 5673, 6552, 

 RPL inherits from my earlier MANEMO work with techcenter

• Coauthor of RFC 6282 (6LoWPAN) 

 liaising with ISA100.11a for consistency

• Available Routing Construct (ARC) 2011 - Now

• New routing concept being developed with high potential for unicast and multicast fast reroute

• 6TiSCH Architecture: the story of IPv6 over IEEE 802.15.4 TSCH.

• DetNet Architecture: enabling automation over IP.

• Industrial Wireless Sensor Networking 2008 - 2011

• Co-editor of ISA100.11a, also participation to ETS
