We're hoping that everyone joining the community introduces themselves and the research they're working on. My name is Brandon Smith and I am currently a graduate student in computer science at the University of New Hampshire. I have been involved with the IEEE-1588 community for about 5 years now, as I have been heavily involved with the certification efforts for the 802.1AS, Default, IEC 61850-9-3 / IEEE C37.238, and ITU G.8275.1/2 PTP profiles.
I'm joining this simulation community for a few reasons:
- Robust simulation frameworks for IEEE-1588 networks open the door to a number of new and interesting research and development efforts. Forming a community around the needs of the industry helps adapt this framework to meet the needs of new research developments.
- My personal research efforts are in need of an IEEE-1588 network simulation to test it at scale.
- Both IEEE-1588 and discrete event simulation are topics I am deeply fascinated by, and wish to continue my contributions after my research is complete.
The research I'm working on is developing a scalable monitoring mechanism for IEEE-1588 networks. You can see a detailed view of this work here. The goal is to test the ARTT mechanism, alongside existing monitoring mechanisms, on large scale networks and observe the differences in both performance and accuracy. This research will be taking place over the next few months.
I'm happy to answer any questions related to my research, IEEE-1588, or really anything else. I hope to help build this community into something great!
