Path Check Patents (Class 370/248)
  • Patent number: 10742555
    Abstract: A method and corresponding apparatus for detecting network congestion. The method includes capturing, using a local clock of a sender device, a send time of an outgoing packet sent from the sender device to a receiver device through a forward route, and capturing, using the local clock of the sender device, a receive time of an acknowledgment packet sent from the receiver device to the sender device through a backward route. The acknowledgment packet contains timing information, generated using a local clock of the receiver device, for determining an internal latency of the receiver device. A round trip time is computed as a difference between the send time and the receive time. The internal latency is subtracted from the round trip time to compute a total propagation time. If the total propagation time is above a threshold, the forward route and the backward route are changed.

  • Patent number: 10715205
    Abstract: A method and a testing device for determining signal-to-noise headroom of a pair of conductors are provided. In the method and testing device, a gain of electric signal transmissions over a pair of conductors is varied to reach a first gain. Prior to reaching the first gain a transition between reception failure and successful reception of the electric signal transmissions does not occur. A first electric signal having the first gain is transmitted over a first end of the pair of conductors and it is determined that the transition between reception failure and successful reception of the first electric signal occurred. A signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) headroom for the pair of conductors is determined based on the first gain at which the transition between reception failure and successful reception occurred.

  • Patent number: 10673718
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems, methods, and apparatus for performing a new kind of traceroute. This traceroute is referred to herein as a “reverse” traceroute, as it enables a given network node to determine the path of packets sent to it from another node. Preferably, an encapsulating tunnel between the two nodes is leveraged. Preferably, a given network node (“first node”) performs the reverse traceroute by sending encapsulated inner packets in the tunnel to another network node (“second node”). The second node reflects the inner packets back to the first node. Preferably, the inner packets are configured such that their IP header TTLs expire at intermediate nodes (such as routers), and such that the resulting error messages are reported to the first node. In this way, the first node obtains information about the topology of the network and the path taken by inbound packets.

The method includes receiving a request to transmit data from a first location. For each path in a set of paths, where each path comprises a connection allowing the transmission of data from the location, a set of performance measures for the path is determined. For each path in the set of paths, an incremental cost of transmitting the requested data using the path is determined. Thereafter, the performance measures and incremental cost for each path is used to determine which path to use to transmit data. Data is then transmitted using the determined path using multipath transmission control protocol techniques (MP-TCP).
