  • Patent number: 10333841
    Abstract: Systems and methods for supporting SMA level abstractions at router ports for GRH to LRH mapping tables in a high performance computing environment. Ingress port mapping of GRH to new LRH can be reduced to minimally include DGID to DLID mapping. By further reducing the complexity by assuming all packets received at a subnet are addressed to a correct subnet (and also taking into account that correct subnet destination can be checked independently of the individual mapping entries), the DGID address can be simplified to a DGUID address, allowing for additional mappings within a same memory size.

  • Patent number: 10284381
    Abstract: A master node may be configured with helper nodes in a one-to-many structure in a multicast tree for data streaming. A master node may receive network requests from the helper nodes in order to construct a pingback response. A master node may establish a network latency, for each of the helper nodes according to the pingback responses, to form a broadcast timing index. A master node may create routing tables from the broadcast timing index for local multicast routing at helper nodes within the multicast tree. A master node may send the routing tables from the master node to each of the helper nodes to arrange helper nodes in proximity to one another and create helper tiers within the multi-cast tree. A master node may stream data from the master node to the helper nodes according to a center-to-edge order of the multicast tree based on the routing table.

  • Patent number: 10256878
    Abstract: New wireless networks can perform enhanced beamforming training for a multiple access technique, such as orthogonal frequency division multiple-access (OFDMA). The configurations of the stations and the networks presented herein provide a multiple-station beam refinement protocol (MSBRP) that may be used to train the transmit end and/or the receive end for the stations in a dense wireless local area network (WLAN). The MSBRP can have at least two phases. The first phase concurrently trains the receive side of multiple responder stations from one set of training signals sent from an initiator station. Then, each responder station can send training signals to the initiator station in a set of ordered phases associated with each responder station. The MSBRP eliminates inefficiencies associated with conducting multiple BRPs that include only pairs of stations.

  • Patent number: 10205664
    Abstract: A system and method for routing. A packet includes a stack of one or more headers, such as a stack of Multiprotocol Label Switching headers, that determines the path that the packet will take, through a sequence of switches, from its source to its destination. Each header in the stack contains an output port identifier that identifies an output port of a corresponding switch in the path. Each switch, upon receiving the packet, removes the first header to form a shortened packet, and routes the shortened packet to the output port identified by the output port identifier.
