  • Publication number: 20180212897
    Abstract: An upstream allocation circuit (14) and a downstream allocation circuit (15) are provided in an OLT (1). For example, a superimposed frame obtained by bundling upstream frames (upstream control frames+upstream data frames) from all ONUS is input to the upstream allocation circuit (14) via a frame reproduction circuit (12-1). The superimposed frame may be generated at the stage of optical signals or generated after converting optical signals into electrical signals. The upstream allocation circuit (14) allocates each of the upstream control frames bundled into the superimposed frame to a predetermined PON control circuit (13) based on information (PON port number or LLID) added to the frames. The downstream allocation circuit (15) allocates, to a preset frame reproduction circuit (12), each downstream control frames output from the PON control circuits (13).

  • Patent number: 9954617
    Abstract: An OLT (1) is formed by N optical transceivers (11), one PON control circuit (12), and one selection and distribution circuit (13). An optical transceiver selection control signal (SC) is transferred from the PON control circuit (12) to the selection and distribution circuit (13). The optical transceiver selection control signal (SC) indicates the timing of a discovery window, the timing of a grant, and a logical link identification number of a registered ONU assigned to the grant (a logical link identification number for a logical link with the registered ONU). The selection and distribution circuit (13) selects one optical transceiver (11-s (s is an integer falling within a range of 0 to N?1)) from the optical transceivers (11-0 to 11-N?1) based on the optical transceiver selection control signal (SC) from the PON control circuit (12).

  • Patent number: 9919139
    Abstract: With the present invention the sheet shaped therapeutic substance can be accurately and easily affixed to the inside of the human body. As shown in FIG. 6A, the sheet shaped substance can be mounted on the head with wrinkles being formed. When this takes place, the sheet shaped substance is held in contact with the outer periphery of the head. Then, by making the pressure of the fluid inside the vent apertures positive, the sheet shaped substance can be blown off. The surface of the head is closely parallel to an inner surface of the esophagus wall for the sheet shaped substance to be affixed. Therefore, this particularly makes it possible to perform such applying step (FIG. 6B) in a more reliable fashion.

  • Publication number: 20180062746
    Abstract: A selection and distribution circuit (13) is provided between N optical transceivers (11) and one PON control circuit (12). The selection and distribution circuit (13) selects the optical transceiver (11) corresponding to an upstream frame that time-divisionally arrives, thereby transferring the upstream frame opto-electrically converted by the transceiver (11) to the PON control circuit (12) and distributing a downstream frame from the PON control circuit (12) to each optical transceiver (11). A power supply control circuit (23) stops power supply to at least one of one of optical transceivers (11) that are not used to transfer the frame of the optical transceivers (11) and a circuit that is not used to transfer the frame in the selection and distribution circuit (13). This can reduce the system cost per ONU in the optical transmission system.

  • Publication number: 20180025658
    Abstract: [Problem] To provide an online learning system in which learning outcome content output by learners is used without modification as teaching content for other learners, and teaching content is developed and improved in an autonomous manner without management by a system administrator. [Solution] In this invention, video/audio content materials (referred to herein as “video/audio clips”) of small units having a certain significance and typically having a length from several seconds to several tens of seconds are used as learning/teaching content, and video/audio clips of images and recordings of learners themselves implementing learning content are collected. The video/audio clips are used not only as material for measuring the degree of learning achieved, but also as learning/teaching content.
