Raj Jain is a Fellow of IEEE, a Fellow of ACM and a member of Optical Society of America, Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE), and Fiber Optic Association. He is on the editorial boards of Computer Networks: The International Journal of Computer and Telecommunications Networking, Computer Communications (UK), Journal of High Speed Networks (USA), Mobile Networks and Applications, and International Journal of Wireless and Optical Communications (Singapore). In the past, he was also on the editorial board of IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networks, was an ACM Lecturer, and an IEEE Distinguished Visitor. Raj Jain is a Distinguished Lecturer for the IEEE Communications Society. He has been giving tutorials on "Hot Topics in Networking" covering latest advances at NetWorld+InterOp since 1995.
Raj Jain is on the board of technical advisors to Corona Networks, Inc., Milpitas, CA, Chip Engines, Inc., Sunnyvale, CA, Teradiant Networks, San Jose, CA, Beacon Telco, Boston, MA, Avatar Networks, Fremont, CA, and Rhonet Systems, Columbus, OH. He was also on the board of advisors to Nexabit Networks, Westboro, MA, which was acquired by Lucent Corporation and to Amber Networks, Fremont, CA, which was acquired by Nokia. He is a consultant to several networking companies, and is listed in Who's Who in the World and Contemporary Authors.
Based on his active participation in the computer industry, Dr. Jain was awarded 1999 SiliconIndia Leadership Awards for Excellence and Promise in Business and Technology. He is also the recipient of Lumley Engineering Research Award 1999 and Research Accomplishment Award 1996 by The Ohio State University, College of Engineering and Ameritech Prize 1995 by Ohio State University.
Raj Jain received a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Harvard in 1978. His Ph.D. thesis entitled "Control-theoretic Formulation of Operating Systems Resource Management Policies" was published in the Outstanding Dissertations in the Computer Sciences Series by Garland Publishing Company, New York, NY.
In 1984, 1985, and 1987 he taught a graduate course on performance analysis at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. This led him to write a book entitled Art of Computer Systems Performance Analysis, which is now a popular textbook on the subject. Addison Wesley published FDDI Handbook: High-Speed Networking with Fiber and Other Media in 1994.
Prior to joining the university in April 1994, Raj Jain was a senior consulting engineer at Digital Equipment Corporation, Littleton, Massachusetts, where for 16 years, he lead the design and analysis of many computer systems and networking technologies including VAX Clusters, Ethernet, DECnet, OSI, FDDI, and ATM networks. He was also an active member of the All-Optical Networking (AON) consortium consisting of Digital, M.I.T./Lincoln Lab, and AT&T that successfully bid for DARPA funding and started the research on Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) networks.
Raj Jain is very active in the areas of optical networking, traffic management, and quality of service in data networks. His research has influenced the directions of Traffic Management and Testing working groups of ATM Forum. He is an active participant in several other industry forums including Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), Optical Interoperability Forum (OIF), Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (IEEE), American National Institute (ANSI), and Telecommunications Institute of America (TIA).
Raj Jain has 14 patents and over 120 publications. He is known for his research on congestion control, traffic modeling, performance analysis, and error analysis. He is a co-inventor of the DECbit scheme, which has been implemented in various forms in DECnet, OSI, Frame Relay, and ATM Networks (Explicit Forward Congestion Indication). His current research interests are in traffic management, performance testing, network management, voice and video over networks, and wireless networks. He is interested in providing practical solutions to problems using sophisticated analytical and simulation modeling techniques.
