  • Patent number: 10038627
    Abstract: One embodiment of the present invention provides a switch. The switch includes a storage device, a rule management module, an inner packet module, and a packet processor. During operation, the rule management module obtains a rule associated with a data flow within tunnel encapsulation of a tunnel. This rule indicates how the flow is to be processed at the switch. The rule management module then applies an initial rule to a respective line card of the switch. The initial rule is derived from a virtual network identifier, which is associated with the tunnel, of the obtained rule. The inner packet module determines that a first inner packet, which is encapsulated with a first encapsulation header, belongs to the flow without decapsulating the first encapsulation header. The rule management module applies the obtained rule to a line card associated with an ingress port of the encapsulated first inner packet.

  • Patent number: 10020860
    Abstract: User equipment (UE) is configured to receive two types of channel state information (CSI) reference signals (CSI-RS), the first containing more antenna ports and measured less often than the second. A first CSI report is based on first type CSI-RS and a second CSI report on the second type CSI-RS. The second type CSI-RS is at least partially precoded in response to the first CSI report, is precoded for the specific UE, and is transmitted more often than the first type CSI-RS, while the first type CSI-RS is not precoded. The first CSI report contains a first precoding matrix indicator (PMI) parameter and the second CSI report contains only a second PMI parameter of a two-PMI codebook, where the first PMI parameter is a long-term and wideband PMI. The first PMI is derived from measuring the first type CSI-RS in a plurality of subframes and resource blocks.

  • Patent number: 10015056
    Abstract: System, method, and apparatus for improving the performance of collective operations in High Performance Computing (HPC). Compute nodes in a networked HPC environment form collective groups to perform collective operations. A spanning tree is formed including the compute nodes and switches and links used to interconnect the compute nodes, wherein the spanning tree is configured such that there is only a single route between any pair of nodes in the tree. The compute nodes implement processes for performing the collective operations, which includes exchanging messages between processes executing on other compute nodes, wherein the messages contain indicia identifying collective operations they belong to. Each switch is configured to implement message forwarding operations for its portion of the spanning tree. Each of the nodes in the spanning tree implements a ratcheted cyclical state machine that is used for synchronizing collective operations, along with status messages that are exchanged between nodes.
