  • Patent number: 10412762
    Abstract: A network node (200), a wireless device (202) and methods therein, for decoding of contention based uplink transmissions of data in a cell served by the network node. The network node (200) registers the wireless device (202) for contention based uplink transmissions of data on a radio resource reserved for contention based uplink transmissions of data, e.g. when receiving a registration request sent from the wireless device, such that the wireless device (202) is included in a set (200a) of wireless devices being registered for contention based uplink transmissions of data on the radio resource in the cell. The network node (200) then performs blind decoding of uplink signals transmitted on the radio resource by considering the wireless devices in the set. In this way, the decoding is made more efficient by disregarding any other wireless devices in the cell which are not registered for contention based uplink transmissions of data on the radio resource in the cell.

  • Patent number: 10341223
    Abstract: An I/O board of a VXLAN switch receives a multicast data packet having a first VXLAN encapsulation, removes the first VXLAN encapsulation, determines that layer 3 multicast forwarding is to be performed for the multicast data packet, and sends the multicast data packet to a fabric board. The fabric board determines that layer 3 multicast forwarding is to be performed for the multicast data packet. When a multicast group member port corresponding to the multicast data packet is a VXLAN tunnel port, the fabric board modifies a source MAC address of the multicast data packet and sends the modified multicast data packet to an I/O board corresponding to the multicast group member port. The I/O board corresponding to the multicast group member port adds a second VXLAN encapsulation to the multicast data packet and forwards the multicast data packet having the second VXLAN encapsulation to a VXLAN.
