Grenville Armitage has been involved in IP- and ATM-related research for the past nine years. Grenville is an active member of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and has co-authored several protocols and standards documents in the area. For the past few years, he has been focusing on IP over ATM, IP multicast, IPv6, Integrated Services, Differentiated Services, and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) issues and protocol development. He was a senior scientist in the Internetworking Research Group at Bellcore before moving to the High Speed Networks Research department at Bell Labs Research (Lucent Technologies) in 1997. In the past two years, he has also traveled internationally, giving talks to customers and general audiences on the latest QoS and MPLS solutions.
Grenville received his bachelor and Ph.D. degrees in electronic engineering from the University of Melbourne, Australia. He now lives in the San Francisco Bay Area and has a weakness for social activities involving beer and/or pool. He has been known to hit tennis balls (poorly), roller-blade (once breaking his arm), and play volleyball (before having a beer). The guitars in his closet haven't been used in years.
