Having A Plurality Of Nodes Performing Distributed Switching Patents (Class 370/400)
  • Patent number: 11323370
    Abstract: An object is to provide a communication device, a communication method, and a program that make it possible to suppress an increase in the communication band due to communication via a GWR when Dual Connectivity is implemented, without making an additional setting on base stations. A communication device according to the present invention enables a communication packet to be transferred through a path that is shorter than conventional paths, and can therefore suppress an increase in the communication band. Also, this short cut of the communication path need only be set on the communication device, and need not be additionally set on the base stations.

  • Patent number: 11315183
    Abstract: An electronic trading system and corresponding method are based on a point-to-point mesh architecture. The electronic trading system comprises a gateway, core compute node, and sequencer. The core compute node performs an electronic trading matching function. The gateway transmits a message to the core compute node via a first direct connection. The gateway transmits the message via a second direct connection to the sequencer which, in turn, transmits a sequence-marked message to the core compute node via a third direct connection. The core compute node determines relative ordering of the message among other messages in the electronic trading system based on the sequence-marked message to complete the electronic trading matching function, deterministically.

  • Patent number: 11303609
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a novel method for performing network address translation to share a limited number of external source network addresses among a large number of connections. Instead of allocating an external source network address for an egressing packet just based on its internal source network address, the method of some embodiments allocates the external source network address based on the egressing packet's source network address and destination network address. This allows a limited number of external source network addresses to be re-used for different destination network address. For instance, in some embodiments, the method's network address allocation scheme allows the same 64K (e.g., 2{circumflex over (?)}16) external source ports to be used for 64K connections for each destination network address.

  • Patent number: 11159958
    Abstract: A central cloud server that periodically obtains sensing information and beam alignment information from a plurality of edge devices. The sensing information and the beam alignment information is correlated for different times-of-day such that a connectivity enhanced database is generated that specifies a plurality of time-of-day specific uplink and downlink beam alignment-wireless connectivity relationships for a surrounding area of each of the plurality of edge devices independent of a plurality of different wireless carrier networks. A different subset of information is distributed from connectivity enhanced database to each of the plurality of edge devices according to a corresponding position of each edge device. The different subset of information causes an edge device to service one or more UEs in a motion or stationary state in its surrounding area independent of different wireless carrier networks bypassing an initial access-search on the corresponding edge device.

  • Patent number: 11133884
    Abstract: End-to-end latency in a data network containing a succession of network devices through which a data packet passes via data connections is determined by first providing the data packet with a trigger packet. Then each device generates and adds to the trigger packet a respective reception timestamp indicating when the packet is received by the respective device. This added data indicates time needed for travel from the immediately upstream network device such that, when reaching the furthest downstream device of the succession of network devices, the trigger packet holds a plurality of timestamp representing when the trigger packet was received by the network devices. Finally the end-to-end latency is calculated at the furthest downstream network device from all of the time stamps in the trigger packet.

  • Patent number: 11129045
    Abstract: In a communication device and a communication method, multiple pieces of QoS control information are stored in a routing information base, each piece of QoS control information, with a terminal wired to the communication device itself as a transmission source, defining a bandwidth control value and a priority degree that correspond to communication data specified by a combination of the transmission source and a destination. When communication data is inputted, a control unit selects QoS control information that matches a combination of the transmission source and the destination of the inputted communication data from among the stored multiple pieces of QoS control information and indicates a bandwidth to a bandwidth control unit on the basis of the selected QoS control information, indicates a priority degree to a DSCP marking unit, and performs wireless transmission.

  • Patent number: 11120023
    Abstract: A graph processing system for concurrent property graph queries of a property graph implemented in a distributed network computes on respective nodes a subgraph shard represented as edge-sets containing vertices within a certain range. Each node stores data for a subgraph shard that contains a range of local vertices that are a subset of all vertices of the property graph. Each subgraph shard also has boundary vertices having edges that connect the subgraph shard to boundary vertices of another subgraph shard. Upon receipt of concurrent queries of the property graph, a query of the subgraph shards is scheduled in accordance with an initial vertex for each concurrent user query. The property graph is traversed by traversing edge-sets within a subgraph shard on each node and during traversal messaging is used to send values of boundary vertices to at least one other node having another subgraph shard sharing the boundary vertices.

  • Patent number: 11119931
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes receiving a request to create a data pipeline by an operating system executing on a computing device. The operating system allocates a shared virtual memory region for the data pipeline. The shared virtual memory region is mapped to a first virtual address space of a first process and a second virtual address space of a second process. The mapping enables the first process and the second process to share data through the shared virtual memory region. Membership information associated with the data pipeline is updated to include the first process and the second process. An access request for accessing the shared virtual memory region is received from the first process, and the access request is granted or denied based on one or more protection policies.
