  • Patent number: 11050586
    Abstract: An inter-cloud communication method, used to implement communication between two clouds, where virtual machines belonging to a same virtual network are created in the two clouds. A receive end cloud uses a gateway node as an entrance to external communication, and all data packets to be sent to a virtual machine in the receive end cloud are sent to the gateway node, thereby preventing a location change of the virtual machine from affecting a transmit end cloud. In addition, the data packet only needs to pass through the gateway node in the receive end cloud and a computing node on which the virtual machine that receives the data packet is located, that is, the data packet only needs two hops to reach a destination, thereby shortening a communication path, and improving inter-cloud communication efficiency.

  • Patent number: 10771381
    Abstract: A receiving node receives a virtual LDP initialization (vInit) message from a first node, where the vInit message comprises a request to establish a vLDP session between a requesting node and a target node. If the receiving node does not own a destination address of the vInit message, the receiving node is determined to be a relay node. The relay node inserts a relay label into the vInit message, where the relay label is an outgoing label that the relay node uses to reach the first node, and forwards the vInit message toward the destination address. If the receiving node owns the destination address, the receiving node is determined to be the target node, which extracts a stack of relay labels from the vInit message. The relay labels are used to define a return path to the requesting node for messages transmitted over the vLDP session.

  • Patent number: 10757017
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to assisting forwarding of multicast traffic over Ethernet Virtual Private Network (EVPN) from a multicast source to a host multi-homed to multiple provider edge (PE) devices. Embodiments are based on the inclusion of an Ethernet Segment Identification (ESI) to EVPN type-6 routes advertised by PE devices which received a multicast Join message. Other PE devices receiving such routes are able to determine whether they belong to the ES identified by the ESI and to determine whether they are designated forwarders (DFs) for the host. Furthermore, PE devices which are the DFs are configured to re-originate the EVPN type-6 routes, i.e. re-send the advertisements, indicating themselves as DFs. This ensures that a remote PE device associated with the multicast source will also send multicast traffic to such DF PE devices, which, in turn, would allow the multicast traffic to successfully reach the host.
