  • Patent number: 8341505
    Abstract: A method for enforcing network bandwidth partitioning. The method includes verifying that a guest driver in a guest operating system (OS) is configured to enforce a resource usage policy, wherein the guest OS resides on a host, mapping a hardware receive ring (HRR) residing on a physical network interface card (NIC) operatively connected to the host to the guest OS, wherein after the mapping the guest OS is configured to receive packets directly from the HRR, determining, using monitoring information, that the guest OS should not receive packets directly from the HRR, and in response to the determination, creating a data path from the HRR to a host OS executing on the host, receiving packets for the guest OS from the HRR by the host OS over the data path, and forwarding the packets from the host OS to the guest OS.

  • Patent number: 8334344
    Abstract: The sliding material is obtainable by extrusion of a raw material containing an olefin-based polymer and a silicone compound as the essential components. A part of the olefin-based polymer forms a crosslinked material in the sliding material. The crosslinked material forms domains to disperse in the sliding material so as to prevent uneven distribution of the silicone compound in the extrusion direction. The residual fraction of hot xylene reflux of the sliding material is in a range from 33 to 75% by weight based on the total weight of the sliding material, and the content of the silicone compound based on the total weight of the sliding material is in a range from 5 to 35% by weight.

  • Patent number: 8335168
    Abstract: A base station apparatus includes a measurement unit, a scheduling unit, and a transmission unit. The measurement unit measures received quality of a reference signal. The scheduling unit provides scheduling information indicating allocation of a radio resource in uplink. The transmission unit transmits a control signal including the scheduling information. After a first packet is transmitted using a first frequency band, a retransmission packet of the first packet is transmitted using a second frequency band other than the first frequency band. The control signal further includes information indicating a difference between received quality in the first frequency band and that in the second frequency band. The retransmission packet is transmitted at a transmission power level determined by adding a transmission power level of the first packet to that corresponding to the difference.
