  • Publication number: 20190066007
    Abstract: Example methods and systems are directed to measuring labor market friction using social networking member information as a proxy for nationwide labor statistics. As nationwide labor statistics are often generic, the social networking member information can serve as a way to more granularly identify where labor market frictions are occurring across communities and/or industries. A user selects one or more labor pool criterion for selecting job postings of a social networking service to be included in the desired labor market. The labor pool criterion are also used to select potential members of the social networking service to be included in the desired labor market. Various comparisons are then made to match the member profiles of the potential members with the selected job postings to determine vacancy rates and potential job seekers. These values are then used to highlight geographic regions where there may be labor market friction.

  • Patent number: 9491686
    Abstract: In general, a mobile virtual private network (VPN) is described in which service provider networks cooperate to dynamically extend a virtual routing area of a home service provider network to the edge of a visited service provider network and thereby enable IP address continuity for a roaming wireless device. In one example, a home service provider network allocates an IP address to a wireless device and establishes a mobile VPN. The home service provider network dynamically provisions a visited service provider network with the mobile VPN, when the wireless device attaches to an access network served by the visited service provider network, to enable the wireless device to exchange network traffic with the visited service provider network using the IP address allocated by the home service provider network.

  • Patent number: 9246838
    Abstract: A label switched path (LSP) is established within a network using an MPLS fast reroute bypass tunnel when a resource along a primary path of the LSP has failed but is protected by the MPLS fast reroute bypass tunnel. While establishing the LSP, a network device identifies a failed resource along a primary path of the LSP. In response to identifying the failed resource, the network device determines whether a bypass tunnel exists from the network device to a node along the primary path, wherein the bypass tunnel avoids the failed resource. Upon determining that the bypass tunnel exists, the network device tunnels a message for establishing the LSP to the node over the bypass tunnel.

  • Patent number: 9166807
    Abstract: Principles of the invention relate to techniques for transmission of Layer 2 (L2) traffic over a point to multi-point (P2MP) label switched path (LSP) within a multi-protocol Label Switching (MPLS) network. A source or ingress network device may implement the techniques to connect multiple L2 interfaces to a P2MP LSP within an MPLS network via a P2MP Pseudo-Wire (PW) mechanism that emulates delivery of L2 data units over a packet switched network, such as the MPLS network. The ingress network device first establishes the P2MP LSP and then connects two or more L2 interfaces to the P2MP LSP via the P2MP PW mechanism. Egress network devices may also implement the techniques to terminate the P2MP LSP and de-multiplex traffic arriving via multiple P2MP PWs carried over the same P2MP LSP.

  • Patent number: 9100201
    Abstract: Techniques are described for supporting PIM (Protocol Independent Multicast) Dense Mode (PIM-DM) and PIM Bootstrap Router (PIM-BSR) between different VPN sites of an IP VPN. A system includes a plurality of customer sites connected to a service provider network by provider edge (PE) routers that provide an IP VPN. A first one of the PE routers receives multicast traffic from a first one of the customer sites, wherein the multicast traffic is PIM (Protocol Independent Multicast) Dense Mode (PIM-DM) traffic for which no PIM join messages have been received by the first PE router from the other PE routers via BGP messages. A tunnel setup module of the first PE router is configured to automatically signal a provider tunnel through the service provider network upon receiving the PIM-DM multicast traffic without maintaining multicast state data for a multicast group associated with the PIM-DM multicast traffic.

  • Patent number: 8953446
    Abstract: A network device receives a join request on a downstream interface, wherein the join request specifies a source device and multicast group, wherein the network device is positioned within a core network of a multicast virtual private network (MVPN) that transmits multicast traffic between the source device and a plurality of receivers associated with customer sites. The network device selects an upstream router to which to send the join request from among a plurality of upstream routers on paths leading to the source device, so as to avoid creating a join request loop in the core network. At least one of the upstream routers is positioned on an Exterior Border Gateway Protocol (EBGP) path toward the source device, and at least one of the upstream routers is positioned on an Interior BGP (IBGP) path toward the source device. The network device sends the join request to the selected upstream device.

  • Patent number: 8804736
    Abstract: An ingress router of a provider network receives a packet from a customer network, determines that the packet includes a customer network label and that the packet is to be tunneled through the provider network, based on the determination, adds a delimiter label to the packet indicative of a bottom of a provider network label stack and one or more provider network labels to the packet, and forwards the packet to a next routing device along the provider network tunnel. An egress routing device of the provider network receives a packet comprising a provider network label stack, removes the provider network label stack from the packet, determines whether the packet comprises a delimiter label following the provider network label stack, and, when the packet comprises the delimiter label, forwards the packet to a customer network interface device.

  • Patent number: 8767741
    Abstract: The invention is directed toward techniques for Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) upstream label assignment for the Resource Reservation Protocol with Traffic Engineering (RSVP-TE). The techniques include extensions to the RSVP-TE that enable distribution of upstream assigned labels in Path messages from an upstream router to two or more downstream routers of tunnel established over a network. The tunnel may comprise a RSVP-TE P2MP Label Switched Path (LSP) or an Internet Protocol (IP) multicast tunnel. The techniques also include extensions to the RSVP-TE that enable a router to advertise upstream label assignment capability to neighboring routers in the network. The MPLS upstream label assignment using RSVP-TE described herein enables a branch router to avoid traffic replication on a Local Area Network (LAN) for RSVP-TE P2MP LSPs.
