  • Patent number: 9979656
    Abstract: The subject matter herein includes methods, systems, and computer readable media for implementing load balancer traffic policies. An exemplary method may be performed at a session load balancer (SLB) and may include receiving, at the SLB, one or more policy attributes associated with each session controller (SC) in a cluster of SCs. The method may further include configuring, at the SLB, a load balancer traffic policy based on the one or more policy attributes received from each SC in the cluster of SCs, where the load balancer traffic policy includes a distribution rate associated with each SC in the cluster of SCs. The method may further include receiving, at the SLB, a registration request for establishing a session with a SC, determining a destination SC using the load balancer traffic policy, and forwarding the registration request to the destination SC.

  • Patent number: 8767715
    Abstract: Systems and methods of establishing IP telephony sessions between enterprises are disclosed. A first enterprise requests an association with a second enterprise. Both enterprises and the second enterprise belong to the same federation. The association request is accepted, to establish an association between the first and second enterprises. In response to the acceptance, a direct routed path is established between the first enterprise and the second enterprise. One of the associated enterprises requests activation of an IP telephony service. If the request to activate references the association, an IP telephony session is established using the direct routed path.

  • Publication number: 20060098577
    Abstract: A system for assisting in controlling real-time transport protocol flow through multiple networks is disclosed The system utilizes at least a first computer and a second computer that is connected to the first computer, wherein the second computer comprises a second transceiver, a second memory having logic stored therein defining functions to be performed by the second computer, and a second processor The second processor is configured by the second memory to perform the functions of: performing an inbound screen on route information received by the second computer, from the first computer, to determine if the received route information should be discarded; if the route information is not discarded, comparing the received and screened route information to a local policy defined with the second computer; and performing an outbound screen on the received and screened information prior to transmitting the received and screened information.

  • Patent number: 6058619
    Abstract: A process and apparatus for drying material, particularly sludges, with indirectly heated driers includes a system for the thermal decontamination of exhaust air from the drier. Excess exhaust air from the drier loop is fed as secondary air to the heating boiler or furnace separately from the primary air for combustion of the fuel and to thermally clean the exhaust air from the drier. The exhaust drier gas from the drier remains in the furnace for a period to decontaminate the drier gas, after which it is mixed with the flue gases. The mixture is then removed from the furnace. The system is suitable for operation under normal operating temperatures and at low, below normal operating temperatures.
