Dr. Anis Ouali

Chief Researcher

Anis Ouali received his BSc in Computer Engineering in 2000 from L’Ecole Nationale des Sciences de l'Informatique (ENSI), Tunisia and the MSc degree in Computer Science in 2004 from Universite du Quebec A Montreal (UQAM), Canada. In 2011, he earned his PhD in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department at Concordia University, Montreal, Canada. His research interests include P2P networks for video streaming, distributed computing and content adaptation.

Anis joined EBTIC in 2010 and is currently working in the network optimization team which focuses on solving network design related problem.

His main tasks include:

  • Requirement capture of real network-related optimization problems that are currently faced by EBTIC partners. Examples of those problems include FTTH design for Greenfield areas, Fiber cabinet bifurcation, etc.
  • Modeling and solving the identified network problems using optimization techniques based on Mixed Integer Linear Programming and meta-heuristics
  • Development of related software tools to be downstreamed to partners


  • Design of FTTH (Fiber To The Home) Cable Layer
  • Planning of Indoor Distributed Antenna System
