Chandra Kintala joined Stevens Institute in January 2004.
Previously he was Vice
President, Network Software Research and Realization Center in Avaya Labs, a
spin-off from Bell Labs in 2000. The center produced several new technologies that
led to multi-million dollar new sales for Avaya: ExpertNet for Enterprise
network VoIP assessment, Voice XML for Call Centers, SIP for enterprise
switches, an 802.11 gateway prototype for VoIP, etc.
In Lucent Bell Labs, he was Director of Distributed Software Research Department. He created Gryphon, an innovative network switch for Layers 4-7, which resulted in a new internal business group. Prior to Lucent, he was in AT&T Bell Labs where he did pioneering research on software-implemented fault tolerance, software rejuvenation, and program generation tools (TTU, PG2), etc. His concept of software rejuvenation is used in systems ranging from IBM’s Netfinity servers to NASA’s long-life space missions. He received a ComputerWorld-sponsored Smithsonian medal for the SwiFT technology in 1998.
Prof. Kintala got his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Penn State University and M. Tech. in Electrical Engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, India. He holds 5 software patents and published over 45 research papers on software fault tolerance, network management and theoretical computer science. He is the General Chair of the IEEE Conference on Dependable Systems and Networks in 2006 (DSN 2006) and was a member in over 10 program committees in the past. He was a keynote or invited speaker at over 15 meetings.
