  • Patent number: 11436576
    Abstract: After loss of communications between a cash handling device and a financial institution, transactions may continue to be processed. In one configuration, the transactions may be processed up to a predefined transaction limit. Transaction limits may be defined by a number of transactions, a dollar amount transacted or to be transacted, an amount of time and/or combinations thereof. Additionally or alternatively, the transaction limit may be specific to one or more types of transactions. Transaction data may be stored in memory until communication has been re-established, at which time the data may be transmitted to the financial institution for processing.

  • Publication number: 20220263793
    Abstract: Techniques for providing, to a resource on a private network of a service provider, access to a resource on a private network of a customer. Service to customer (S2C) resources deployed on a cloud infrastructure to facilitate the access. Whereas IP address ranges may overlap between private networks and/or private IP addresses may be used in one or more of the private networks, the S2C resources enable the data exchange between the private networks. For example, the S2C resources translate between IP addresses such that data within each private network uses IP addresses that can be properly processed by the private network.

  • Publication number: 20220255854
    Abstract: Techniques for controlling packet flows are described. In an example, a packet is sent on a virtual network. The packet's header includes scoping data that indicates a network boundary within which the packet is permitted and/or prohibited to flow. A network virtualization device of a substrate network receives the packet. The network virtualization device determines the scoping data from the header and, based on network configuration information, determines the forward flow of the packet. If the forward flow falls within a permitted network boundary indicated by the scoping data, the network virtualization device sends the packet forward. Otherwise, the packet is dropped.

  • Publication number: 20220116323
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for providing high performant packets processing capabilities in a virtualized cloud environment that enhance the scalability and high availability of the packets processing infrastructure. In certain embodiments disclosed herein, the VNICs functionality performed by network virtualization devices (NVDs) is offloaded from the NVDs to a fleet of computers, referred to as VNIC-as-a-Service System (or VNICaaS system). VNICaaS system is configured to provide Virtual Network Interface Cards (VNICs)-related functionality or service for multiple compute instances belonging to multiple tenants or customers of the CSPI. The VNICaaS system is capable of hosting multiple VNICs to process and transmit traffic in a distributed virtualized cloud networks environment. A single VNIC executed by the VNICaaS system can be used to process packets received from multiple compute instances.

  • Publication number: 20220021610
    Abstract: Systems and methods for a VLAN switching and routing service (VSRS) are disclosed herein. A method can include generating a table for an instance of a VSRS, which VSRS couples a first virtual layer 2 network (VLAN) with a second network. The table can contain information identifying IP addresses, MAC addresses, and virtual interface identifiers for instances within the virtual layer 2 network. The method can include receiving with the VSRS a packet from a first instance designated for delivery to a second instance within the virtual layer 2 network, identifying with the VSRS the second instance within the virtual layer 2 network for delivery of the packet based on information received with the packet and information contained within the table, and delivering the packet to the identified second instance.

  • Publication number: 20220021678
    Abstract: Systems and methods of interface-based ACLs in a virtual Layer-2 network. The method can include sending a packet from source compute instance in a virtual network to a destination compute instance via a destination virtual network interface card (destination VNIC) within a first virtual layer 2 network and evaluating an access control list (ACL) for the packet with a source virtual network interface card (source VNIC). ACL information relevant to the packet can be embedded in the packet. The VSRS can receive the packet and can identify the destination VNIC within the first virtual layer 2 network for delivery of the packet based on information received with the packet and mapping information contained within a mapping table. The VSRS can access ACL information from the packet and can apply the ACL information to the packet.

  • Publication number: 20210377166
    Abstract: Techniques for loop prevention while allowing multipath in a virtual L2 network are described. In an example, a NIC supports the virtual L2 network. The NIC is configured to receive, via a first port of the NIC, an L2 frame that includes a source MAC address and a destination MAC address. Based on a loop prevention rule, the NIC transmits the L2 frame via its ports except the first port. In an additional example, the NIC is further configured to send an L2 frame to a host via the first port of the NIC. The L2 frame can be a BPDU. Upon receiving a BPDU from the host via the first port, the NIC determines that the BPDU is looped back and disables the first port.

  • Publication number: 20070189310
    Abstract: A mobile router offers seamless roaming services to one or more locally connected mobile hosts over one or more simultaneously connected networks. The mobile router, as well as its local area network, roams across different subnets on similar networks, across networks that are dissimilar, or across a simultaneous combination of both. Simultaneous support is provided for mobile hosts configured for static IP addressing and mobile hosts configured for dynamic IP addressing. Seamless support is provided for mobile hosts that dynamically migrate from one mobile router to another mobile router, while avoiding the need for configuration settings on the mobile router that are associated with individual mobile hosts and avoiding the need for mobility support software on the mobile hosts themselves.

  • Publication number: 20060046716
    Abstract: A method is provided for seamless roaming over multiple dissimilar wireless networks leveraging a set of one or more SDRs, and possibly some traditional radio communication devices. The method includes determining whether alternate networks are available regardless of whether the SDR has only a single transmitter and receiver or multiple transmitters and receivers. In addition, if the SDR provides multiple transmitters and receivers, or if multiple distinct SDRs are available to the mobile computing device, the method will be able to better optimize the seamless roaming experience for the user while still utilizing the set of SDRs, in part, to determine whether alternate networks are available. The method further includes managing the transitions of an SDR between various modulation algorithms according to a variety of states and settings of the SDR or of the set of SDRs as a whole.
