  • Patent number: 11165533
    Abstract: An Ethernet transceiver is disclosed. The Ethernet transceiver includes transmit circuitry having a forward error correction (FEC) encoder to encode data into FEC frames. A modulator modulates the FEC frames into symbols. A precoder equalizes the symbols and a transmitter transmits the equalized symbols over a reduced number of channels NS with respect to a baseline number of channels N0. For a reduced data rate BS with respect to a baseline data rate B0, the FEC frames are assembled by the FEC encoder to exhibit an expanded frame time FTS that is expanded from a baseline frame time FT0 by a factor of B0/BS. The modulator generates symbols that are transmitted by the transmit circuit at a symbol rate SRS that is reduced from a baseline symbol rate SR0 by a factor of (B0*NS)/(BS*N0).

  • Patent number: 10164865
    Abstract: The system and method of the present disclosure relates to technology for a network system supporting multiple topology transparent zones (TTZs) on an edge node. TTZs have a topology including TTZ nodes consisting of edge nodes and internal nodes connected together by internal links. The edge nodes may also be connected to external nodes outside of the TTZ. The edge node is responsible for generating and distributing link state advertisements (LSAs) to generate virtual paths from the edge node to other edge nodes in each of the TTZs. Each TTZ sharing the edge node and each external node neighboring one of the other edge nodes of the TTZs is virtualized by distribution of the LSAs. However, the internal topology of each TTZ is concealed from each of the other TTZs sharing the edge node and from any neighboring external node connected to one of the other edge nodes.

  • Patent number: 10050808
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes traffic forwarding in a network where a virtual local area network (VLAN) exists in multiple network sites that are geographically dispersed and connected via virtual links. A first edge device (ED) at a first site receives, from a second ED at a second site, information identifying a VLAN of the second ED through a virtual link. The VLAN identified in the information is an active VLAN of the second ED. An association between (i) the VLAN of the second ED and (ii) the virtual link through which the information is received from the second ED is recorded. When forwarding traffic to the VLAN of the second ED, it is determined the virtual link associated with the VLAN of the second ED is determined based on the recorded association and the traffic is forwarded via the determined virtual link.

  • Patent number: 10043383
    Abstract: An infrared (IR) emission and reception circuit, which is composed of three parts, an IR transceiver circuit, a carrier-smoothed circuit, and a signal recognition circuit. The IR transceiver circuit receives an outside IR signal, converts it to an electrical signal, and then amplifies and shapes the electrical signal to form a carrier frequency read signal; the IR transceiver circuit also emits an IR signal outward. The carrier-smoothed circuit receives the carrier frequency read signal, filters out the carrier to form a carrier-smoothed signal, and outputs it to the signal recognition circuit. The signal recognition circuit receives the carrier-smoothed signal, and converts it to an IR recognition signal to output to the electronic-device processor. The electronic-device processor receives the carrier frequency read signal to recognize the carrier frequency of the outside IR signal, and also receives the IR recognition signal to learn IR control codes of the outside IR signal.
