  • Patent number: 8961032
    Abstract: An interconnect assembly includes an optical fiber cable, legs, connectors, and covers. The optical fiber cable includes a jacket and sub-units. The jacket has an interior defining a passage and the sub-units extend through the passage and include optical fibers extending lengthwise through the sub-units. The legs of the interconnect assembly extend from the passage on an end of the jacket, where the legs are continuations of or extensions from the sub-units such that the optical fibers further extend through the legs. The connectors are attached to the optical fibers on distal ends of the legs and the covers are attached to the connectors. The covers each include an end having a track for wrapping one or more of the legs over in order to package the legs and connectors, such as for placement of the legs and connectors within a pulling grip for installation of the interconnect assembly through a duct.

  • Patent number: 8025085
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for applying a label to a specific location on a vial. The apparatus may comprise a label dispenser, a vial placement assembly for orienting the vial and placing it onto a track, a pushing device for pushing the vial down the track into an adhesive side of the label, and a labeling gate for contacting a non-adhesive side of the label to smooth the label onto the vial. The apparatus may further comprise a label positioning device for correcting unwanted curling of the label, a stopper positioned to engage a portion of the pushing device as the vial contacts the label to cause the pushing device to release the vial, and a label-release switch configured to signal for the label dispenser to release a trailing edge of the label once the vial contacts the labeling gate.

  • Publication number: 20100147723
    Abstract: A cushion made of resilient polymer is a push fit onto the edge or corner of a sheet of glass or other sheet material susceptible to chipping. The cushion is of modified U-section having a shock absorbing bed and upstanding legs which define a sheet receiving slot. The legs diverge when the sheet is inserted and exert a gripping force sufficient to retain the cushion when the sheet is carried.

  • Patent number: 6976087
    Abstract: Network elements at endpoints of a data connection are identified. A network path is generated between the network elements at the endpoints. The network path is validated by determining whether the network path provides at least one service requirement. The service requirement may be a minimum bandwidth requirement, a maximum bandwidth requirement, a maximum delay requirement, a maximum jitter requirement, a reliability requirement, a requirement that the network path includes network elements capable of acting as security gateways that bracket untrusted sections of the network path, a reachability requirement, or a data collection capability requirement. Network elements along a validated network path are configured to implement the service requirement. In one embodiment, the configuration performed on the network elements is recorded.

  • Patent number: 6560230
    Abstract: Providing different levels of quality of service for different data flows being transported over a data link requires a very fast way to schedule individual packets for forwarding on the data link. The invention provides scheduling methods which give preference to higher priority packets while treating lower priority packets fairly. The methods can provide shorter latencies for higher priority packets than can many prior scheduling methods. The methods and apparatus of the invention are readily adaptable for use with scheduling rules provided in the form of hierarchical policy trees.

  • Patent number: 6449650
    Abstract: A network policy management system and methods define service templates. The service templates contain information on the topologies of services such as video calls, web services, order processing applications, or the like. The service templates also contain information about the quality of service required by each of the data flows which will be generated when an instance of the service is used. The policy management system allows users to add new services by selecting a service template and specifying endpoints for the service on a map of the network. The system automatically generates updated packet forwarding rules for use at a plurality of packet processing devices in the network.
