  • Patent number: 7443851
    Abstract: A multicast communication device receives data packets multicast for receiving terminals which terminals do not support multicast communication and that are requesting multicast data packets. The multicast communication device then forwards the data packets to the receiving terminals. Communication from the receiving terminal accessing the sending terminal sending data packets to obtain information is monitored. Based on the access contents, a join group request is issued for the group address used by the multicast delivery. The multicast communication device stores service information such as the address of the sending terminal and the destination address of data packets sent by the sending terminal. If the service to be accessed by the receiving terminal is present, multicast delivery of data packets is requested. The multicast communication device forwards received multicast data packets to the receiving terminal.

  • Patent number: 7170885
    Abstract: A packet switching is performed according to a routing information for relaying particular packets which is produced by the route computation based on the information of a received packet and the kept parts-of-routing-information useful as a basis for the route computation. At this time, the route through which the packet is relayed is determined on the basis of the kept parts-of-routing-information before the route computation. Then, the received packet is relayed according to the determined route. Next, a new routing information is produced by the route computation based on the information of the received packet and the parts-of-routing-information. Thereafter, the succeeding packets of the same route are relayed on the basis of the new routing information.

  • Publication number: 20030198214
    Abstract: A highly-expandable router configuration technology which flexibly meets the need to increase lines as a network grows. A network information sharing unit is provided in a route calculation unit of each router in a clustered router. The network information sharing unit receives an update notification of network information collected by routing protocol units and sends this update information to all other routers in the clustered router as a network information notification packet. The network information sharing units in the receiving router notifies the routing protocol units of the contents of the received updated information. The routing protocol unit updates the network information thereof based on the notified contents, thereby allowing the network information obtained from all routers outside the clustered router to be shared and the clustered router to be recognized externally as a single router.

  • Patent number: 6490246
    Abstract: A multiplex router device, having a multiplex configuration, is instrumental in reducing internal and external traffic flows for a routing protocol process that occurs at a time of system switchover. A data base integration module, in a route calculation unit in the active mode, stores network link-state information collected by a routing protocol packet transmission-reception module in a link-state data base, and at the same time sends the information to a route calculation unit, but does not send routing protocol information collected. In the route calculation unit in the standby mode, a data base integration module that received the network link-state information stores its contents into its own link-state data base. When a failure occurs in the route calculation unit in the active mode, the route calculation unit performs the routing protocol process by using the stored link-state data base.
