  • Patent number: 9596240
    Abstract: A subscriber login server is used for managing a subscriber login session. The login server is associated with a DHCP server for configuring a premise equipment device and operator-managed device. A subscriber login client at the premise equipment device securely communicates login username and password identifiers to the subscriber login server without using PPP technology. The login server retrieves matching identifiers from a RADIUS server and authorizes service with messages to the DHCP server and the CMTS. The login client can emulate a PPP login client so that a user's interface is similar to a PPPoE client. However, a layer-3 CMTS can be used instead of a layer-2 CMTS. In addition, subscriber authentication and accounting using RADIUS are preserved, positive network access control at the CMTS is maintained, and native IP traffic is routed or switched for maximum performance and QoS treatment.

  • Publication number: 20140265825
    Abstract: Conventional mercury vapor discharge lamps include a closed emitter tube made of quartz glass having an emitter tube end, a gas-tight seal in the region of the emitter tube end, and two electrodes arranged inside the emitter tube for generating a discharge in a discharge zone between the electrodes, as well as an amalgam reservoir. In order to provide a mercury vapor discharge lamp having an amalgam reservoir, which can be operated at high efficiency at variable irradiation power and also is easy and inexpensive to manufacture, an annular gap is formed in the region of the emitter tube end between a quartz glass tube and the emitter tube, and the amalgam reservoir is arranged inside the annular gap.

  • Patent number: 8630540
    Abstract: A translation agent adapts DOCSIS information, primarily QoS information, for transmission over a PON. The agent places into an IP address field of a DHCP message the MAC address of an ONU associated with a CPE device attempting to register with a CMTS. The translation agent intercepts DHCP reply messages from the DHCP server using the MAC address of the ONU. The translation agent extracts information, including an IP address of the client CPE assigned by the DHCP server. The agent downloads a configuration file for the CPE device using the configuration filename and configuration file server contained in a DHCP reply message. Information contained in the configuration file is converted from content in a format used by DOCSIS, to content in a format used by PON devices. The translated content includes QoS parameters, functions related to which are controlled at the ONU by an OLT coupled to the CMTS.

  • Publication number: 20100322420
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus used to provide duplicate address detection in edge devices. Edge devices can include CMTS devices or DSLAMs where network nodes are not allowed to communicate with each other directly. Duplicate address detection proxies can provide duplicate address protection for network devices and can avoid the issue of broadcasting node advertisement messages to all of the devices connected to a particular downstream link.

  • Publication number: 20070272685
    Abstract: In a known method, a quartz glass component is produced for a UV radiation source by melting SiO2-containing grain. Starting therefrom, to indicate an inexpensive method by means of which a quartz glass component is obtained that is characterized by high radiation resistance, it is suggested according to the invention that synthetically produced quartz crystals are molten to obtain a pre-product which consists of quartz glass containing hydroxyl groups in a number greater than the number of SiH groups, and that for the elimination of SiH groups the pre-product is subjected to an annealing treatment at a temperature of at least 850° C., whereby the quartz glass component is obtained. In the quartz glass component of the invention, the quartz glass is molten from synthetically produced quartz crystals, and it has a content of SiH groups of less than 5×1017 molecules/cm3.
