Congestion Based Rerouting Patents (Class 370/237)
  • Patent number: 11671349
    Abstract: This application provides a packet forwarding method and a related apparatus. The method includes: determining whether a flow to which a packet belongs meets a large flow condition; and if the flow to which the packet belongs meets the large flow condition and a flowlet routing table does not include a flowlet entry corresponding to the flow, creating the corresponding flowlet entry in the flowlet routing table, and forwarding the packet based on the created flowlet entry. In the foregoing technical solution, a corresponding flowlet entry may be created only for a large flow, to perform flowlet-based load balancing on the large flow. This can reduce an entry resource used for flowlet-based load balancing, improve balance of multi-path load sharing, and effectively improve a traffic sharing effect of load balancing.

  • Patent number: 11665093
    Abstract: A method and system for latency-driven multi-media redirection. Through multi-media redirection, multi-media content from one or more multi-media sources may be re-routed to an endpoint to be decoded and/or rendered thereon. This redirection of multi-media content diverges from the traditional approach of directing the multi-media content from the multi-media source(s) to an information technology environment to be decoded and/or rendered prior to delivery of the decoded/rendered multi-media content to an endpoint. Current criteria for employing multi-media redirection are many, however, fail to consider network latency as a potentially crucial factor in the decision process for enabling or disabling multi-media redirection. Accordingly, the disclosed method and system propose the automated enablement or disablement of multi-media redirection based on network latency analyses.

  • Patent number: 11528085
    Abstract: The present invention proposes a new method for solving the problem of fault tolerance. This new approach obtains all secondary routes assigned to each possible connection (user). The secondary routes replace the main routes when these are affected by at least one fault, which keeps the users connected as long as, for each connection, there is at least one route with operative links for reaching the destination nodes thereof. This new approach solves the general case of an arbitrary set of simultaneous link failures. The method also assesses the number of wavelengths for each link of the network, so that the probability of any connection request from a determined user c being blocked is less than a predefined threshold ?c, despite the possible occurrence of the fault scenario.

  • Patent number: 11252190
    Abstract: The current document discloses systems and methods that implement access controls for service providers. When a client requests access to a service provider, but does not satisfy the conditions for non-limited access, the service provider provides limited access to the services based at least in part on a limited access policy. The limited access policy establishes a limitation that defines when the limited access to the service provider expires. In some implementations, the service provider issues a signed access token to the client, and the access token includes an expiration value that is updated when service requests are processed. When the access token expires, access to the service is terminated.
