  • Patent number: 10104036
    Abstract: A method of generating a routing table containing information as to the weighted distance between client's that use a resolver and each rack gateway, taking into account how traffic to each client can egress from the CDN AS. The routing table is generated from matrix multiplication of two matrices. One matrix contains information as to the proportion of each client's use of each resolver in a first autonomous system. The second matrix contains information as to the distance between each client and each rack, with respect to an egress gateway, in a second autonomous system. The resulting routing table is used to identify a gateway from which to serve content to a client.

  • Patent number: 10069792
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure involve systems, methods, computer program products, and the like, for extracting information associated with one networking transmission protocol, such as Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), based on information associated with a different networking transmission protocol, such as Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv4). More specifically, when resolving an IP address for a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) through which a content file may be obtained, the system may base the resolved URL on attributes of an IPv4 address extracted from an IPv6 address for a machine associated with the request. In one particular example, a geographic location of a requested computing device or machine may be determined or estimated based on an IPv4 address extracted from an IPv6 address associated with the request.
