  • Patent number: 7986693
    Abstract: A data link layer switch includes a switching mechanism coupled to a plurality of port interface controllers. Each of the port interface controllers comprises a multicast address table, a multicast matcher, and a timer. The multicast address table stores multicast addresses for hosts attached to the port interface controller. The multicast matcher matches an incoming packet to a target pattern, generates a multicast address from the incoming packet if the incoming packet matches the target pattern, and stores the generated multicast address in the multicast address table. The timer determines an amount of time that the generated multicast address remains in the multicast address table.

  • Patent number: 6931001
    Abstract: A system and method for establishing voice communication between a packet-switched network and a circuit-switched network includes a network interface unit for coupling to the packet-switched network, a phone interface unit for coupling to the circuit-switched network and a gateway processor coupled to the network interface unit and to the phone interface unit. In response to a call request, a packet-switched network connection is established between the gateway processor and a first station in the packet-switched network, and a circuit-switched network-connection is established between the gateway processor and a second station in the circuit-switched network. Incoming voice data packets received from the first station are converted to outgoing voice signals, which are transmitted over the circuit-switched network connection to the second station.

  • Patent number: 6633572
    Abstract: An Ethernet ADSL adapter controls data communication between an Ethernet port and an ADSL modem connected to an ADSL channel. The adapter includes a first buffer for storing data packets received at the Ethernet port, a second buffer for storing data packets received from the ADSL modem and a controller. When the first buffer contains a first predetermined number of data packets and data packets are not available for transmission to the Ethernet port, a jamming signal is transmitted from the Ethernet port. The jamming signal inhibits transmission of additional data packets to the Ethernet port by other Ethernet nodes until space is available in the first buffer. When the second buffer contains a second predetermined number of data packets, a pause signal is transmitted to the ADSL modem. The pause signal inhibits further transmission of data packets to the ADSL modem on the ADSL channel until space is available in the second+ buffer.
