Inventors: Richard Prescott Skillen, Frederick Caldwell Livermore
Patent number: 5991292
Abstract: In current voice telephony, CATV, and wireless networks, traffic is channelized for both access and transport. This channelization is wasteful of resources where multiple services have varying demands for bandwidth and holding times, or a service generates traffic that is bursty in nature. The invention solves these problems by providing flexible and adaptable multi-service access to the networks. Customer requirements are checked by monitoring traffic on a local access at a connection request and/or during the established connection, and the local access is configured according to the transmission requirements. The local access can also be configured in response to the network information. In further realizations, either or both the CPE connector and access module include common bus architecture which forms a backbone LAN for handling a multiplicity of CPEs and/or networks.

Patent number: 5802043
Abstract: A novel transport architecture and network elements use nodes in a ring or virtual ring configuration. Information is exchanged among the nodes in a continuous series of containers carried in a superframe. A container is assigned to a destination node and is divided into partitions which are allocated for source nodes. Therefore, when a container destined to a particular destination node arrives at a node and if this node has information to send to the destination node, it fills the allocated partition within the container with information destined to the destination node. The sizes of the superframe, containers and partitions are all variable dynamically or statically.
