Personal Bio

Richard J. Nieporent, Ph.D., has 42 years of experience in the analysis, design, and development of communications networks for both military and civilian agencies. He is an expert on wired and wireless networking technologies and the networking protocols developed by the ISO, ITU-T, IEEE and IETF standards organizations. Dr. Nieporent retired from the MITRE Corporation where he was a Senior Principal Engineer. He has been involved with the design, development and analysis of long haul, tactical, circuit switching, packet switching, wireless and local area networks for numerous government civilian, military and intelligence agencies.

Dr. Nieporent is a senior adjunct faculty member of the Johns Hopkins University graduate school of engineering, where he has taught courses in Data Communication Networks, Computer Network Architectures and Protocols, TCP/IP, and Local Area Networks for the past 33 years. Dr. Nieporent is the advisor for the telecommunications and networking option for the master's degree in computer science.

Dr. Nieporent was a member of the ANSI X3T5 Standards Committee that was responsible for the US contribution to the development of the OSI Reference Model and upper layer protocols. He has published and delivered numerous papers on networking at conferences and seminars, and is the author of the chapter on Metropolitan Area Networks for the Handbook of Computer Networks.
