Dr. Leonard Kleinrock is known as "the Inventor of the Internet Technology," having created the basic principles of packet switching, the technology underpinning the Internet, while a graduate student at MIT. This was a decade before the birth of the Internet, which occurred when his host computer at UCLA became the first node of the Internet in September 1969. He wrote the first paper and published the first book on the subject; he also directed the transmission of the first message ever to pass over the Internet. In 1999, the Los Angeles Times listed him as among the 50 People Who Most Influenced Business This Century.

Dr. Leonard Kleinrock received his Ph.D. from MIT in 1963 and has served as a professor of Computer Science at the University of California, Los Angeles since then. He was first president and co-founder of Linkabit, the founder and chairman of Nomadix, Inc., and also founder and chairman of TTI/Vanguard. He has published more than 225 papers and authored six books on a wide array of subjects including packet switching networks, packet radio networks, local area networks, broadband networks and gigabit networks.

Dr. Leonard Kleinrock is a member of the National Academy of Engineering, an IEEE fellow, an ACM fellow and a founding member of the Computer Science and Telecommunications Board of the National Research Council. Among his many honors, he is the recipient of the C.C.N.Y. Townsend Harris Medal, the CCNY Electrical Engineering Award, the Marconi Award, the L.M. Ericsson Prize, the NAE Charles Stark Draper Prize, the IEEE Internet Millennium Award, the UCLA Outstanding Teacher Award, the Lanchester Prize, the ACM SIGCOMM Award, the Sigma Xi Monie Ferst Award, the INFORMS Presidents Award, and the IEEE Harry Goode Award.
