  • Patent number: 10686665
    Abstract: Implementations generally relate methods, systems, and computer readable media for discovery of an open network adapter. In some implementations, a method includes receiving, by a software-defined network (SDN) controller, a notification of an open networking adapter (ONA) establishing a connection with a switch, the ONA having an address associated therewith. The method further includes identifying the switch based on a lookup of the address of the ONA in forwarding tables of a neighboring switch of the SDN controller. The method further includes applying a service profile configuration to a port of the switch where the ONA is connected.

  • Patent number: 10044709
    Abstract: Methods, systems and computer readable media for multi-device single network sign-on are described. For example, a method can include authenticating a first device for network access via a first authentication process, the first device being associated with a user account. The method can also include receiving an access request from a second device associated with the user account, and determining whether the second device is within an access perimeter of the first device. The method can further include permitting the second device to access the network without a second authentication process when the second device is within the access perimeter of the first device.

  • Patent number: 9689790
    Abstract: Environmental control systems and techniques for monitoring heat exchanger fouling are provided herein. In an embodiment, a technique for monitoring heat exchanger fouling includes providing a correlation of heat exchanger fouling to an operating variable. The correlation is programmed into a maintenance system that includes a processor that is adapted to receive data regarding the operating variable. The operating variable is chosen from inlet temperatures of input streams into the heat exchanger and outlet temperatures of output streams out of the heat exchanger, heat exchanger pressure drop, overall heat transfer coefficient value, speed of rotation of an air conditioning machine that includes the heat exchanger, and combinations thereof. Data regarding the operating variable is gathered via a sensor that is adapted to measure the operating variable. The measured operating variable is determined to correspond to excessive heat exchanger fouling in accordance with the correlation using the processor.

  • Patent number: 8572234
    Abstract: In an exemplary embodiment, a method for managing a network includes monitoring a network using an interior gateway protocol to detect change in the network, and determining effects of the detected network change on Multi Protocol Label Switching paths in the network. For example, the MPLS paths can be the same as IGP best paths. An exemplary embodiment includes managing a Multi Protocol Label Switching network by discovering edge routers in the Multi Protocol Label Switching network, determining possible combinations of Multi Protocol Label Switching path end points based on services provided within the network, selecting discovered edge routers for observation, based on the determined possible combinations, monitoring the selected edge routers, and determining status of Multi Protocol Label Switching paths in the network based on the monitoring.
