Dipl.-Ing. Zuo Xiang

PhD Researcher

Zuo Xiang received his Master degree (Diplom-Ingenieur) in electrical engineering with honors from the TU Dresden, Germany, in 2018. During his PhD study, his research focused on 5G network softwarization through NFV and SDN technologies. The title of his PhD dissertation is “Ultra Low-latency, Energy-efficient and Computing-centric Software Data Plane for Network Softwarization”. In addition to his solid research skills, he is experienced in designing and developing high-performance software systems for virtualized network functions (VNFs) and server-side applications. He also has experience in 5G core network system development and has in-depth knowledge of network system design, network protocol stacks, communication protocols and operating systems.
