Biography

PETER SCHEFCZIK is a member of technical staff at Bell Labs, Germany. He received both an M.Sc. degree and a Ph.D. degree in applied mathematics from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg in Germany. In his career he has been involved in the design and development of new network architectures and advanced protocols for both wireless and wireline communication systems. In addition to his work in fourth generation wireless network architectures, heterogeneous access networks, and network convergence he has played a key role in the design and creation of the base station router (BSR), which today is offered within the Alcatel-Lucent Small Cell solution. His current research interests concentrate on laying the foundations for the next-generation Internet and include femtocell environments for the home, sensor networks, and the Internet of Things. He is an advocate for cloud networking technologies and cloud solutions for future virtualized radio access networks within collaborative European research projects.  Dr. Schefczik holds several international patents in the area of data transmission and mobile networks. He has also authored or co-authored over 50 articles and research papers in this field.
