  • Patent number: 10791090
    Abstract: This document describes methods, devices, systems, and means for a wireless mesh access point with user-space tunneling. A first wireless mesh network access point (WMAP) determines that a frame from a first device is destined for a second device associated with a second WMAP. The first WMAP encapsulates the frame to produce an encapsulated frame that includes an Internet Protocol (IP) header and a payload, the Internet Protocol (IP) header including an IP destination address of the second WMAP and an IP source address of the first WMAP, and the payload including a header and payload data from the frame. The first WMAP sends the encapsulated frame to the second WMAP using a station mode interface of the first WMAP, which causes the second WMAP to forward the frame to the second device.

  • Patent number: 10791028
    Abstract: A system for testing Ethernet paths or links without adversely impacting non-test traffic. The system includes a test traffic generator that includes a scheduler that determines when a new test packet is generated. The test traffic generator includes a packet creator that builds a test packet and a transmitter for transmitting the test packet via the Ethernet path or link. The packet creator sends the test packet to the transmitter. The traffic generator includes a transmit credit block coupled to the transmitter or to the scheduler. The transmit credit block stores an amount of credits representing a number of bytes that are available to transmit and decrements the amount each time a non-test packet is communicated via the Ethernet path or link.
