Nacho (Ignacio) Solis is a Principal Scientist at PARC and protocol architect of the Content-Centric Networking team. With a wide range of expertise – from distributed server-less applications to contention-free MACs – Nacho addresses network challenges through content-based networks and various content-based applications.
Nacho has been a principal investigator for various DARPA-funded projects at PARC. He recently led PARC’s work in the Delay-Tolerant Networking (DTN) program, which developed content-based network extensions over the standard DTN technology – including a routing protocol, a content?based API, and a server-less system using content primitives. Nacho also led PARC's work with BBN Technologies (a wholly owned subsidiary of Raytheon Corporation) for the WNaN Adaptive Network Development (WAND) program, where he worked with BBN in creating, designing, implementing, and testing a content-based API for their ad-hoc networking platform.
In addition to content-based networks, Nacho has built various content-based applications including a content-based Command Post of the Future (CPOF)-like prototype for map sharing; a content-based gathering and sharing mobile application called FieldNote for Small Unit Operations; and a content-based mobile chat application. He also co-designed PARC's TRAQ application for DARPA's Transformative Apps program.
Dr. Solis received his Ph.D. from the University of California, Santa Cruz, M.Sc. from the University of Southern California, and B.S. from the University of Costa Rica.
