  • Patent number: 10594617
    Abstract: A network device includes circuitry and multiple ports. The circuitry is configured to hold a definition of a normalization function that determines, based on (i) a reference probability of applying a congestion indication operation to packets having a predefined reference packet-size and (ii) a packet-size parameter, a normalized probability of applying the congestion indication operation to packets whose size equals the packet-size parameter. The normalization function depends exponentially on a ratio between the packet-size parameter and the reference packet-size. The circuitry id configured to store packets in a queue, and to schedule transmission of at least some of the queued packets via an output port, to calculate the normalized probability for a given packet, by applying the normalization function to an actual reference probability and an actual size of the given packet, and randomly apply a congestion indication operation to the given packet, in accordance with the normalized probability.

  • Patent number: 10575326
    Abstract: A data transmission method and device, related to the communications field, are disclosed, so as to resolve a prior-art problem that a data decoding error occurs on user equipment because data packets sent by different coordinated network devices to the same user equipment on a same time-frequency resource are different resulting from a data packet loss. A specific solution is: receiving a scheduling grant message (201), where the scheduling grant message includes an identifier of a data packet and time-frequency resource information; and when it is determined, according to the identifier of the data packet, that the data packet is stored in a buffer, sending, according to the time-frequency resource information, the data packet to user equipment on a time-frequency resource indicated by the time-frequency resource information (203); or if the data packet is not stored in a buffer, skipping sending the data packet (204).
