  • Patent number: 10749794
    Abstract: Embodiments include generating an error message based on an error associated with a packet, adding to the error message an address of a node in a segment routing domain of a network to serve as a destination address of the error message, and adding a new segment routing header to the error message. Embodiments also include rewriting the packet where the rewriting includes replacing a destination address in the packet with a final destination address associated with the packet. Embodiments further include adding the rewritten packet to the error message, and forwarding the error message to the destination address of the error message. In specific embodiments, the rewriting the packet includes removing a segment routing header of the packet. More specific embodiments include deriving the new segment routing header from information in the packet.

  • Patent number: 10721790
    Abstract: A method and user node for maintaining a connection with a network node when operating in a multi-carrier mode using a first filter configuration to receive multiple frequency carriers simultaneously for downlink communication. The user node applies a mode switching scheme comprising first intervals for the multi-carrier mode and second intervals for a single carrier mode using a second filter configuration to receive a single carrier for the downlink communication. In this case, the user node switches temporarily from the multi-carrier mode to operate in the single carrier mode during the second intervals according to the mode switching scheme. Thereby the user node is enabled to maintain the connection by receiving messages and/or control signalling from the network node over the single frequency carrier during the second intervals, for example when the multi-carrier mode is highly disturbed by interference.

  • Patent number: 10666568
    Abstract: There is provided a method in a packet based network system for node-to-node transmission of data packets comprising timing packets and non-timing packets, which is directed to a mechanism for providing a delay variation compensation in a timing system or timing sensitive signal transport in a packet based network without participating in the timing signaling of the timing packets or timing sensitive packets themselves. The method comprises associating the data packets with different levels of transmission priority Pr, Pl, assigning highest (or highest available) transmission priority Pr to the timing packets, separately queuing the timing packets in different buffers 401, 402, and providing first opportunity transmission of the timing packets regardless of transmission priority level of non-timing packets waiting to be transmitted. The advantage of the method is that timing-sensitive traffic thereby experiences reduced buffer delay variations.

  • Patent number: 10659365
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer readable media can be operable to facilitate the use of a station as a proxy for scanning one or more wireless channels. Upon a determination that a currently utilized wireless channel has become impaired, an access point may identify one or more idle wireless stations and may request that the one or more idle wireless stations perform a scan of one or more other wireless channels. The identified wireless station(s) may perform a scan of one or more other wireless channels and may provide an indication of the current level of congestion on each respective wireless channel to the access point. Based on the indication of the current congestion levels of each wireless channel, the access point may determine whether a more advantageous channel is available. If a more advantageous channel is available, the access point may tune to the more advantageous channel.

  • Patent number: 10659372
    Abstract: An apparatus, such as a network element, comprises a receiver to receive a plurality of packets. A memory stores instructions and forms a first and second set of virtual queues to store the plurality of packets. A processor having one or more cores with one or more packet classifiers provides a classification of a packet in the plurality of packets. The processor in communication with the memory executes instructions to transfer the packet from the receiver to a virtual queue in the first set of virtual queues based on the classification. The processor also transfers the packet from the virtual queue to a transmitter based on a demand rate value and supply rate value associated with the virtual queue.

The computer-implemented method includes receiving a first message that includes a completion queue element by the receiver from the sender. The computer-implemented method includes detecting that a number of outstanding completion queue elements in a completion queue meets or exceeds a high mark and instructing the sender to enter a throttle mode. The computer-implemented method includes receiving a second message without a completion queue element by the receiver from the sender. The computer-implemented method includes detecting that the number of the outstanding completion queue elements in the completion queue meets or is below a low mark and instructing the sender to exit the throttle mode.
