  • Patent number: 11368544
    Abstract: Disclosed are techniques and apparatuses that are configured to receive an indication that a web browsing session executing on an enterprise server needs additional information based on a request for additional information being sent to a client device. The request may include an identifier of the web browsing session and an identifier of an enterprise server that initiated the web browsing session. A globally unique identifier related to the web browsing session and an identifier of the enterprise server is stored in a common data store. The web browsing session may be paused when the web browsing session requests additional information from a client device. The client device may respond with the additional information. The system may provide the identifier of the enterprise server to a load balancing component so the identified web browsing session executing on the enterprise server may continue to be used.

  • Patent number: 11336573
    Abstract: Techniques for routing data packets through service chains within and between public cloud networks of multi-cloud fabrics. A router in a network, e.g., a public cloud network, receives data packets from nodes in the network through segments of the network. Based at least in part on (i) a source address of the data packet, (ii) a destination address of the data packet, and (iii) an identity of the segments of the network from which the data packets are received, the router determines a next node in the network to which the data packet is to be forwarded. The router may then forward the data packet through another segment of the network to the next node and then receive the data packet from the next node through the another segment.

  • Patent number: 11336586
    Abstract: A method for communicating in real-time to users of a provider of Internet access service, without requiring any installation or set-up by the user, that utilizes the unique identification information automatically provided by the user during communications for identifying the user to provide a fixed identifier which is then communicated to a redirecting device. Messages may then be selectively transmitted to the user. The system is normally transparent to the user, with no modification of its content along the path. Content then may be modified or replaced along the path to the user. For the purposes of establishing a reliable delivery of bulletin messages from providers to their users, the system forces the delivery of specially-composed World Wide Web browser pages to the user, although it is not limited to that type of data.

  • Patent number: 11329875
    Abstract: A method of switching from a first gateway within a plurality of first gateways to a second gateway in a network includes precaching configuration information on the second gateway, that is within the first gateways, prior to switch-over to the second gateway. The first gateway from which the second gateway is being switched is identified. The second gateway is configured in accordance with the configuration of the first gateway based on the precached configuration information prior to the switch-over to the second gateway. Data traffic from data applications using the network is replicated and sent to the first gateway and the second gateway. Bandwidths allocated to terminals in the network are frozen in association with the switch-over to the second gateway. The bandwidths allocated to the terminals in the network are unfrozen based at least in part on an indication of completion of the switch-over to the second gateway.
