Walter Willinger, a member of the Information and Software Systems Research Center at AT&T Labs Research in Florham Park, NJ, has been a leading researcher into the self-similar ("fractal") nature of Internet traffic. His paper "On the Self-Similar Nature of Ethernet Traffic" is featured in "The Best of the Best - Fifty Years of Communications and Networking Research," a 2007 IEEE Communications Society book compiling the most outstanding papers published in the communications and networking field in the last half century. More recently, he has focused on investigating the topological structure of the Internet and on developing a theoretical foundation for the study of large-scale communication networks such as the Internet.

SIAM Fellow, 2009. For the study of network traffic and the internet.

AT&T Fellow, 2007. Large data network behavior: Honored for fundamental contributions to understanding the behavior of large data networks.

ACM Fellow, 2005. For contributions to the analysis of data networks and protocols.

IEEE Fellow, 2005. For the analysis and mathematical modeling of Internet traffic.
