  • Patent number: 10798000
    Abstract: A method and apparatus of a device that determines a match for a compressed address using an exact match table of a network element is described. In an exemplary embodiment, the network element receives a data packet that has a destination address. The network element further compresses the destination address to give a compressed address. In addition, the network element performs an address lookup using the compressed address in an exact match table. Furthermore, a match in the address lookup indicates a transmitting interface of the network element. The network element forwards the data packet using the transmitting interface.

  • Patent number: 10785161
    Abstract: A method is provided by which a network adapter device receives a packet sent over a network from a peer, the packet including an enqueue timestamp indicating when the packet has been enqueued at the network adapter device. The network adapter device parses a header of the packet to detect whether the header includes bits indicating that the peer device is experiencing congestion, and obtains packet metadata of the packet and the enqueue timestamp of the packet. The network adapter device compares the packet metadata with information in a flow table to identify an entry in the flow table corresponding to a flow to which the packet metadata matches. The network adapter device sets a timer associated with the flow, the timer for use in scheduling transmission of a next packet provided by the host to be sent to the peer.

  • Patent number: 10728852
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. A user equipment (UE) may monitor a narrowband (e.g., a single carrier, anchor carrier, etc.) for a control message that includes a grant for downlink data transmissions. The narrowband containing the control message may be a portion of a system bandwidth. The UE may then monitor a wideband (e.g., all or multiple carriers of the system bandwidth) for data according to the control message. Monitoring the wideband may include additional or alternate circuitry being powered (e.g., receiver circuit switching) to enable reception on an increased range of frequency spectrum. In some examples, a gap or narrowband data transmission may be scheduled between the control message and the grant to allow grant processing and receiver circuitry switching at the UE. In some cases, the control message and data transmission may be received in the same or different transmission time intervals (TTIs).
