  • Publication number: 20140211790
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and communication network system that allows an endpoint to be simultaneously registered with more than one communications server is described. In one embodiment, the communication network system includes a network, a plurality of communications servers that are coupled to the network, and a plurality of endpoints coupled to the network. Each endpoint is capable of being simultaneously registered with more than one communications server. A communication method for an endpoint involves registering a first logical line of the endpoint with a first communications server, and registering a second logical line of the endpoint with a second communications server. Consequently, flexibility is obtained by allowing an endpoint to choose the registering communications server for each logical line of the endpoint.

  • Patent number: 8014278
    Abstract: A packet network device has multiple equal output paths for at least some traffic flows. The device adjusts load between the paths using a structure that has more entries than the number of equal output paths, with at least some of the output paths appearing as entries in the structure more than once. By adjusting the frequency and/or order of the entries, the device can effect changes in the portion of the traffic flows directed to each of the equal output paths. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 4371754
    Abstract: An automatic fault recovery system for a multiple processor control complex of a telecommunications switching system is disclosed. The fault recovery system has a hierarchical structure which deals with the occurrence of soft faults and localizes insofar as possible the effect of errors, with the goal of minimizing disruption of calls through the switching system. Included in the steps taken by the recovery system are rewriting memory locations in active memory units from standby memory units, switching between active and standby copies of memory units, bus units and central processor units, and instituting progressively more pervasive initializations of all the processors in the control complex. The recovery system includes an arrangement employing a memory block parity check for fast initialization. A time shared error detection and correction activity assures that standby copies of memory units are in condition to become active when required.
