Computer Science Capstone Team Wins IEEE Grant

A computer science senior project team of Brice Aldrich, Devin Aspy, and Zach Pratt were awarded an IEEE Standards Education Grant for their capstone project, sponsored by INdigital Telecom. The team is advised by Zesheng Chen, assistant professor of computer science.

Their project, “Redundant Failover Seamless-IP-Stack (RFSIS),” about creating an Internet Protocol Stack (i.e., IP-Stack) that supports seamless redundant failover for legacy systems and for future Internet-of-things (i.e., IoT) applications.

The IP-Stack is designed to provide a quick response to failover, in order to backup systems within user-land. It will more specifically be beneficial in the telecommunications industry, where most working systems are archaic and do not provide seamless failover technology.

The IEEE Student Grants require that student projects apply or implement industry standards. The team must submit an application paper for publication by the IEEE upon completion of the project. This is the second time a computer science department team won this grant.
