  • Publication number: 20210168033
    Abstract: A method of switching from a first gateway within a plurality of first gateways to a second gateway in a network includes precaching configuration information on the second gateway, that is within the first gateways, prior to switch-over to the second gateway. The first gateway from which the second gateway is being switched is identified. The second gateway is configured in accordance with the configuration of the first gateway based on the precached configuration information prior to the switch-over to the second gateway. Data traffic from data applications using the network is replicated and sent to the first gateway and the second gateway. Bandwidths allocated to terminals in the network are frozen in association with the switch-over to the second gateway. The bandwidths allocated to the terminals in the network are unfrozen based at least in part on an indication of completion of the switch-over to the second gateway.

  • Publication number: 20210165705
    Abstract: There is provided execution circuitry. Storage circuitry retains a stored state of the execution circuitry. Operation receiving circuitry receives, from issue circuitry, an operation signal corresponding to an operation to be performed that accesses the stored state of the execution circuitry from the storage circuitry. Functional circuitry seeks to perform the operation in response to the operation signal by accessing the stored state of the execution circuitry from the storage circuitry. Delete request receiving circuitry receives a deletion signal and in response to the deletion signal, deletes the stored state of the execution circuitry from the storage circuitry. State loss indicating circuitry responds to the operation signal when the stored state of the execution circuitry is not present and is required for the operation by indicating an error. In addition, there is provided a data processing apparatus comprising issue circuitry to issue an operation to execution circuitry.
