Victor Moreno is a Distinguished Engineer at Cisco Systems responsible for the definition of next-generation network architectures. Victor has more than 20 years of industry experience focused on enterprise and data center network design and architecture. A recognized expert in his field, Victor holds several patents which are at the foundation of the key protocols and networking technologies that have enabled the evolution of networking to its current state. He has worked directly on the designs of global enterprises and service providers and has done extensive research on the topic of network virtualization, being a driving force within Cisco and earlier Digital Equipment Corporation for new product definition and technological direction. Victor is the co-author of the Cisco Press title Network Virtualization and has published a multitude of technical papers and articles on behalf of Cisco Systems. Victor holds a degree in electrical engineering from the Simón Bolívar University, as well as master’s degrees and specializations from the Universities of York, Cambridge, and Stanford. Victor is an active contributor to the definition, implementation, and standardization of the Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP).

Dino Farinacci is a software engineer by trade and a technology visionary by passion, advancing the state of the art in computer networking. As one of the first Cisco Fellows, Dino holds more than 40 Internet and networking-related patents and has been a major IETF contributor for nearly 30 years with approximately 50 RFCs and Internet Drafts published. Dino is the founder of lispers.net, a nonprofit engineering organization, where he now focuses on design and deployment of LISP for IoT, cryptocurrency, and 5G mobile networks.

Dino is one of the original RFC co-authors of LISP, dating back to 2007, and has had the pleasure of writing two implementations of the protocol. He currently does consulting for large startup networking vendors and helps users deploy network designs using LISP and other architectures. If you can name an Internet protocol, there is a good chance Dino has designed and implemented it in widely deployed products. Over his career working at the NSA, CDC, 3Com, Procket, and Cisco, he has worked on dozens of operating systems, network protocols, and infrastructure systems.
