  • Patent number: 8477627
    Abstract: A method of assigning a priority to a document in a content-routed network including a plurality of routers interconnected by links, involves matching rules against the content of a received document to assign a priority, mapping the priority onto an egress link, and mapping the egress links onto the interconnect network between content routers to achieve end-to-end quality of service.

  • Patent number: 7801857
    Abstract: In a method of managing a content-based network, which is typically XML-based, and optionally may be overlaid on an underlying network having a plurality of network elements interconnected by links, a link state protocol maintains each network element's topological view of the overlay network from the underlying network. A subscription management protocol ensures dissemination of published content within the content-based network independently of the link state protocol.

  • Patent number: 7327688
    Abstract: A computer communications network comprises a plurality of interconnected ATM switches forming a WAN or LAN area network over which ATM cells are transmitted, and a plurality of user devices including LAN interface adapters for connection to one or more to local area networks (LANs). An interface device connects at least some of the respective ATM switches to the LAN interface adapters. The interface adapts the ATM cells for transport over the LANS. The user devices can thus communicate through the LAN interface adapters transparently with the wide area network.

  • Patent number: 5917821
    Abstract: An arrangement is disclosed for parsing packets in a packet-based data transmission network. The packets include packet headers divided into fields having values representing information pertaining to the packet. The arrangement includes an input receiving fields from the packet headers of incoming packets, a memory for storing information related to possible values of said fields, and a device for retrieving the stored information appropriate to a received field value. The retrieving device comprises a look-up engine including at least one memory organized in a hierarchical tree structure, and a controller for controlling the operation of the memory. The arrangement is capable of performing fast look-up operations at a low cost of implementation.

  • Patent number: 5563876
    Abstract: The invention provides a very fast distributed frame relay switch. Each switching element is tied to each other switching element using LAN like FDDI technology. Frame relay packets arrive into the switch via lower speed TDM based trunks and can either be switched locally within the same switching element or can be switched to a remote switching element via the FDDI bus. The switching elements themselves reside in a TDM based multiplexer, thus can utilize existing TDM interfaces.
