Josh Bailey's ECS home page
I'm Josh Bailey, a network and software engineer
working for Google since 2005. I work for Google full time. My major interests are in SDN, and network management/measurement.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
unless you are a journalist, in which case my email address is email@example.com
. Email is the only way to contact me if I'm not in.
I am not an academic and don't publish much (if at all - a tragically short Google Scholar profile), but some of my best friends and collaborators are academics and do publish. I am more an engineer and experimenter.
I live and work in Wellington, New Zealand and I have an office at VUW in the School of Engineering and Computer Science (ECS), room AM410.
I participate in an international community of researchers interested in advanced networking, including the US
, the EU
, and Australia/NZ
. VUW ECS have a research group
in SDN (Google has a contract with VUW which I administer). WAND at the University of Waikato also are very active
in SDN research.
REANNZ run their office on an open source, SDN controlled switch, called FAUCET
, as do the WAND
group at the University of Waikato. FAUCET is a compact controller that can be easily deployed in an existing network by anyone with conventional systems administration skills. There is an ACM Queue article
on FAUCET. I occasionally blog
about FAUCET, and this patent
describes virtualizing network functions using similar technology.

Things I can't help you with
What is SDN?
These are some high level articles about SDN (I claim only that they might be interesting!). If you are interested in the technical details, they're in the next section.
- Network management
- M-Lab (measuring the performance and the behavior of the Internet)
- Tesla coils
