  • Publication number: 20180270161
    Abstract: Conventional internet routing is handled using routing protocols such as the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP). However, simple BGP does not account for latency, packet loss, or cost. To address this problem, smart routing systems that route traffic fast and in a cost-effective manner are implemented. In one approach, smart routing systems measure, compare, and analyze round-trip latencies and other metrics between a customer premises and one or more endpoints. Optimal inbound and outbound transit providers are selected for each endpoint based on these measurements. Other smart routing systems collect and analyze Real User Monitoring (RUM) data to predict latency performance of different content origins for serving data to a particular client based on the client's IP address and the content origins' IP addresses, which are ranked by performance.

  • Publication number: 20180259797
    Abstract: In an optical device, a ring-resonator modulator, having an adjustable resonance (center) wavelength, receives an optical signal that includes a carrier wavelength from an input-output optical waveguide. Then, a monitoring mechanism monitors a performance metric (such as an average power or a signal swing) of a monitor optical signal from the ring-resonator modulator. Moreover, control logic in the optical device adjusts the resonance wavelength based on the monitored performance metric so that the resonance wavelength is locked to the carrier wavelength. In particular, the control logic may apply a change to an adjustment signal that is provided to the ring-resonator modulator. If the change increases the performance metric, the control logic may continue to modify the resonance wavelength. Otherwise, the control logic may modify the resonance wavelength by applying one or more changes, having an opposite sign to the change, to the adjustment signal.

  • Patent number: 10074955
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments improve on the design of existing hybrid ring lasers by enabling a redundancy of one of the least reliable components, the III-V reflective semiconductor optical amplifier (RSOA). This allows a spare RSOA to be used to replace a failed RSOA while using the same ring mirror as the wavelength selective filter, thus reducing link down time, and eliminating the need for additional switching or multiplexing elements which add excess loss and require additional power. The result is a more reliable transmitter enabling greater scale in networking systems. In addition, this facilitates a widely tunable laser with the same outputs by utilizing two gain media comprised of different bandgap active material. Finally, multiple correlated wavelengths can be emitted from this device with two different gain materials using the same ring mirror element as reference.

  • Publication number: 20180253262
    Abstract: Systems and methods for list retrieval in a storage device are provided that significantly reduces the number of commands needed to retrieve data. A single command or request may be issued to receive data stored at a parent node, a child node, and/or a grandchild node. For example, a request may be issued that includes a node corresponding to a particular level, a depth level below that particular level to which to obtain data and/or filter criteria. With this information, the requested information may be obtained to the depth level while filtering out information not included in the request. When the request corresponds to a parent node and information about the children nodes is desired, for example, additional requests are not needed to obtain information from all of the parent node and the children nodes. Thus, the length of time needed to provide certain stored management information is reduced.

  • Patent number: 10067900
    Abstract: A system that includes a switched fabric hierarchy (e.g., a PCIe hierarchy) may realize efficient utilization of a shared I/O device (e.g., a network or storage switch) across multiple physically separate processing nodes (endpoints). For example, each processing node (endpoint) in a distributed processing system may be allocated a portion of the address map of a shared I/O device and may host a device driver for one of multiple virtual functions implemented on the shared device. Following enumeration and initialization of the hierarchy by the root complex, the endpoints may access the virtual functions directly (without intervention by the root complex). Data and interrupt traffic between endpoints and virtual functions may take place over peer-to-peer connections. Interrupt reception logic in each endpoint may receive and handle interrupts generated by the virtual functions. The root complex may host a device driver for a physical function on the shared device.

  • Patent number: 10067867
    Abstract: Techniques for performing garbage collection on an object array using array chunk references is described. A garbage collector (GC) thread identifies an object array to be processed. The GC thread divides the object array into array chunks. The GC thread generates array chunk references corresponding respectively to the array chunks. Each array chunk reference comprises: (a) chunk start bits representing a memory address of a start of a corresponding array chunk, and (b) chunk length bits representing a chunk length of the corresponding array chunk. The GC thread pushes the array chunk references onto the processing stack. A single processing stack concurrently stores multiple array chunk references, associated with a same object array. One or more of the array chunk references, that are associated with the same object array and stored on the processing stack, may be distributed to other GC threads for processing.
