  • Patent number: 11799888
    Abstract: A network topology analysis and validation system and technique are provided. In some implementations, the system may obtain information in real-time mode or as an off-line data set. The information being representative of a defined network topology type for a computer network and communication connections for devices within the computer network. The computer network analysis may be performed on a subnet of a larger network. A communication topology of the computer network may be compared with the expected (defined) network topology using bipartite and bi-colorization techniques to classify nodes of the computer network. After classification, anomalous communication connections (not in conformance with a standard for the defined network topology) may be identified and colored for presentation to a system administrator. Anomalous communication connections may initiate an alert, event, or alarm, via a system administration monitoring system for real-time notification.

  • Patent number: 11743147
    Abstract: A post incident analysis system and method includes a system management module coupled to a communications link and digital data storage containing a database of multiple survey questions, each question associated with an application criteria statement and auto populate instructions. The module conducts post incident analysis responsive to a network incident. After the incident receives a given status, the module generates a post incident survey. Survey questions are identified by applying the application criteria statement associated with each question. The module pre-completes selected ones of the identified survey questions by executing the auto populate instructions associated with the selected survey question to identify and retrieve answers to the question from predefined data sources specified in the auto populate instructions. The post incident survey includes, at minimum, survey questions for which the pre-completion was not successful. The survey is transmitted to the participants via the link.

  • Patent number: 11736594
    Abstract: A method and system of a low-latency FPGA framework based on reliable UDP and TCP re-assembly middleware is disclosed. The need for low-latency communication in digital systems has increased drastically. The disclosed FPGA framework enables low-latency communication as a hybrid framework that supports both UDP & TCP communication. As known in art, TCP provides error checking support hence making TCP more reliable as compared to UDP, while UDP is faster but not reliable. Hence the disclosed low-latency FPGA framework latency utilizes the advantage of both UDP and TCP by utilizing UDP for its speed, while switching to TCP in case of a missing sequence in UDP. Further, the disclosed system proposes a TCP re-assembly middleware architecture for processing TCP with a lower-latency, wherein the TCP re-assembly middleware is an independent middleware that is a modular and a plug-play independent middleware.
