Dr. Viniotis' current research interests are in the areas of service engineering, design of high speed networks (with special emphasis on datacenter and virtualized environments) and network algorithm analysis.
In October 1997, Dr. Raif Onvural (an NCSU alumnus) and Dr. Viniotis cofounded Orologic Inc., a networking startup in Research Triangle Park. Orologic was acquired by Vitesse Semiconductors Corporation in March 2000 for $450M. While at Orologic, Dr. Viniotis was one of the two principal system designers of Pacemaker, the industry's first 2.4 Gbps traffic management ASIC, and Monitor, the industry's first 2.4 Gbps ASIC implementation of the I.610 and I.630 ITU protocols.
