Richard J. Nieporent, Ph.D., has 48 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 protocol standards developed by ISO, ITU-T, IEEE, and IETF. 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 Principles of Data Communication Networks, Computer Network Architectures and Protocols, Internetworking with TCP/IP II, and Wired and Wireless Local and Metropolitan Area Networks for the past 40 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.
