Brett Pentland is a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Telecommunications and Information Engineering (CTIE). In 1996, he completed a Masters degree in Electrical Engineering at Monash University in the area of telecommunications; specifically desktop video conferencing.

He has since been involved in design and operation of an advanced network testbed and simulation cluster, taught industry training courses, consulted on network design for institutions including Museum Victoria and researched topics including ATM, video conferencing and next generation IP.

He is a contributor to IETF and IRTF Working Groups in the field of IPv6 Mobility, concentrating on protocol enhancements to allow fast handovers.

Research Interests
Next Generation Internet, Wide Area Networking, ATM traffic characteristics, Network performance evaluation, Broadband network design, Video-on-Demand and Video Conferencing over carrier ATM networks, Digital Media Library.

The current focus is on Movement Detection and Mobility in IPv6 networks.
This work is supported by ATcrc Applications program
