She is currently working on her thesis and has submitted a paper to the IEEE ACCESS Journal titled, ‘A YANG-Based Information Model for SDN Management’. It consists of the design of a YANG-based information model to perform configuration tasks in a heterogeneous SDN environment that consider different Autonomous Systems (AS). Ana is passionate about many topics, particularly software defined networks (SDN), network management, gamification (online learning games), and projects that impact society at several different levels.

Brent McIntosh (Grenada)

Brent McIntosh is currently the Group Lead for IP/MPLS Operations for Cable and Wireless Communications (CWC), the largest telecommunications service provider in the Caribbean region. In this role, he oversees the operations of IP transit capacity, 3rd Party CDN (Google, Facebook, Netflix, etc.), IXP deployments and IPng. Brent is passionate about IXP deployments and IPv6 technology on a whole. IPv6 deployment in the Caribbean is one of his personal and professional objectives, and as such, he is involved with many communities that are fostering this change such as IPv6 Forum and CaribNOG.

Diego Dujovne is an Associate Professor at Universidad Diego Portales in Santiago, Chile. He is a Returning Fellow to the IETF98, having previously participated in the programme at IETF89 in London. Diego is active in the DETNET and ROLL working groups (WGs), and more recently in the LPWAN WG.  He and the team at his university have developed a LoRaWAN simulator module for OMNET++ and an early implementation of the LPWAN SCHC (IPv6 over LPWAN networks). His working interests are IoT and Deterministic Networks, but he is also quite interested in Content-Centric Networks and Wireless Experimental Platforms. Diego is the Chapter President of the IEEE Communications Society of Chile.

Diego Londoño (Colombia)

Diego Londoño is a Postgraduate Student at the University of Chile where he is completing the Master of Science (MSc) in Electrical Engineering. He is also a Research Assistant at NIC Chile Research Labs. Diego’s work is primarily in the areas of IoT, HTTP2, and application protocols in constrained networks.
