  • Publication number: 20170155576
    Abstract: It is disclosed a method for controlling the protection switching in a communication network having a ring topology. The method applies when a lockout of protection command is applied at a node, a bidirectional failure occurs on a span connecting the node to an adjacent node, and the lockout of protection command is subsequently removed. The method comprises, at any one of the node and the adjacent node, detecting the failure and, if there is not a further lockout of protection command locally applied at the any one of the node and the adjacent node, sending a request packet carrying a signal fail indication towards the other node.

  • Publication number: 20100233276
    Abstract: The described agglomeration of drug microparticles blended with excipient microparticles is a technique for the size enlargement of micronized products that could be damaged by granulation or compaction techniques. These agglomerates can be used as oral prompt or delayed-release dosage forms administered as they are or dispersed in a liquid. The composition and quantity of the excipient microparticles resulted to be the crucial factors for the agglomerate quality. Therefore, adjusting the content of surface-active agent between 8-20%, of the excipient microparticles it is possible to agglomerate microparticles of drugs that could not be agglomerated per se. Increasing the surfactant concentration in the spray-dried excipient microparticles or increasing the fraction of these excipient microparticles in the blend, the agglomeration was improved. The spray drying technique concentrates the surface-active agent on the microparticle surface.

  • Patent number: 6683890
    Abstract: A method and circuit are described for improving the pointer processing in the case of synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH) or synchronous optical network (SONET) transmission frames with VC4_4c, VC4_16c and VC4_64c concatenated payloads. The technique proposed by the existing Standards provides for two different state diagrams to be used in the pointer processing algorithm. One state diagram is used in the case of a concatenated payload and the other state diagram is used in the case of a non-concatenated payload. However, no solution is disclosed for automatically going from the states of one diagram to the states of the other diagram. The present invention provides a circuit so constructed that it can be used in an apparatus processing STM-4, STM-16 and STM-64 frames, through which the automatic recognition of the VC4-4c, VC4-16c and VC4-64c payload concatenation can be achieved. Therefore, it is not necessary to configure in advance the concatenation or non-concatenation condition.

  • Patent number: 5202886
    Abstract: A system and related multiplexers/demultiplexers for the transmission/reception of digital television information (video+audio), including high definition information (HDTV). Such transmission typically occurs in packets at various work speeds including, among others, a special transmission in which two data flows are transmitted simultaneously to obtain a single information. The multiplexer is associated with external buffers that receive the data at different speeds, form the packet and generate requests of transmission to the multiplexer that receives them according to preestablished priorities.
