In this talk I present our research results in the field of network protocols for secure host authentication and mobility, design of complex peer-to-peer systems and their evolution towards datacenter middleware, and Software Defined Wireless Networks. These results are contained in three books published by Wiley and Springer between 2008 and 2015. I will introduce the Host Identity Protocol, its current deployment scenarios and standardization status, and the use of structured P2P systems for identifier/locator resolution. Finally, I will talk about the main benefits of designing SDN-based LTE and 5G networks.
