  • Patent number: 6816495
    Abstract: A communication network including connection switching exchanges, such as an ATM, a connection management apparatus is provided in a network management unit of a communication network. A group of logical connections with a fixed group size and consecutive identifiers assigned to the connections is treated as a unit. The number of logical connections in the group is an integer with a power of 2. The logical connections and connection identifiers assigned to the logical connections are set up and released in connection setting units each equal to a multiple of the group size in a unitary manner across the network. A priority level is assigned to each connection setting unit. When logical connections have been set for connection setting units sharing the same connection identifiers, logical connections with the shared connection identifiers pertaining to a connection setting unit with a smaller size is considered to be valid.

  • Patent number: 5434886
    Abstract: A digital communications system suitable for high-speed data transmission includes a transmitter and a receiver providing the ability to selectively switch between multiple coding and decoding methods. The transmitter includes a plurality of trellis coders, each of which performs a different type of coding on a transmission signal. The receiver includes a plurality of Viterbi decoders, corresponding to the different types of coders in the transmitter, for decoding the transmission signal. The receiver also includes a selector for determining which of the decoder outputs to choose from based on the frequency of code violations detected in the transmission signal. The present invention thus provides a flexible apparatus for improving the quality of high-speed data transmissions.
