  • Patent number: 9455896
    Abstract: Computer communications that are to be recorded are visible to a network interface on a recording computer. The network interface receives the packets to be recorded. The network layer of the recording computer implements a subset of the normal IP module in the network layer. Instead of checking every IP packet, the IP module in the network layer assumes that most IP packets are correctly addressed, internally consistent and of the expected protocol type. The recording computer allocates the received packets to a recording session based upon the value of a field that is at a fixed position within the packet. Packets that are allocated to a session are recorded or associated with other packets that have been allocated to the same session.

  • Patent number: 9451054
    Abstract: A reliable communication protocol RUDP is provided to transfer data between two systems connected in a network. Working over the unreliable UDP transport layer protocol, the RUDP protocol adds an acknowledging mechanism to otherwise unreliable UDP packets. Contrary to the TCP transport layer protocol, which establishes a connection before any data transfer, the RUDP is used to transfer short amounts of information or messages, so a connectionless communication is used. In a connectionless context the complexity of the encoding-decoding algorithm and the amount of memory consumed by the protocol is reduced. Such characteristics makes the RUDP protocol suitable for its implementation in systems with limited memory and speed, like low processing power 8-bit microcontrollers. Furthermore, by programming the RUDP protocol over the UDP protocol, its implementation in a personal computer can be made with common programming tools.

  • Patent number: 9350488
    Abstract: Data objects are delivered over a packet-switched network and receivers receive encoded symbols, such as repair symbols, broadcast or multicast, with sufficient information to form requests for additional symbols as needed based on what source symbols or sub-symbols are needed or missing. The requests can be made in a unicast or request fashion. Requesting and broadcasting might be done by different entities. A broadcast server can generate and store repair symbols while a source server can store content in source form. A request can be a unicast HTTP byte-range request, such as a URL, starting position and length. Requests might be aligned with starting positions of files. A receiver can calculate starting and ending byte positions of symbols or sub-symbols in a file and get indications that conventional HTTP servers are usable for file repair. Repair servers can request broadcast of repair data when byte-range requests from multiple receivers overlap.

  • Patent number: 9332442
    Abstract: A mobile device which is moved within this network can stay connected to the network. The network routes signals from client to client and from the Internet to client using transceivers. The transceivers in the relay can be a software radio and can be software controlled. Streams of bits are transferred from a source to a destination in a wireless network. Portions of these streams of bits can be transferred between these software radios to distribute signals in the network. In addition, servers can be located within the network to provide local and immediate high bandwidth information. As the bandwidth increases, the range of the wireless signal typically decreases. Thus, inserting relays or multiple transceivers can be used to maintain high bandwidth coverage over a large networking range.

  • Patent number: 9306794
    Abstract: A mechanism for identifying long-lived large flows in a communication network is disclosed in which packets transmitted through ports of a switching device or router are continuously examined. As new flows are recognized, their flow definition information is processed through a hashing table that uses a predetermined number of hash stages each having a pre-selected number of hash buckets. Each hash bucket has a counter that is incremented each time flow definition information ends up in the bucket. At the same time as counters are incremented, they are compared against a threshold number. If the bucket counters for all the hash stages exceed this threshold number, the flow is identified as a long-lived large flow and stored as such in a flow table.

  • Patent number: 9292501
    Abstract: A process for updating a data structure in a relational database used within a manufacturing execution system, contain the steps of defining within the database the data structure and defining SQL scripts having specific rules. The rules contain a header describing an initial data structure and a final data structure, thereby defining each of the defined SQL scripts as a section of the updating process. The current data structure of the database is analyzed and the required sections among the sections available are identified by comparing the current data structure of the database to the initial data structure defined in the header of the SQL script. A sequence order to apply the sections is defined and the required SQL scripts are run according to the defined sequence order. This allows developers to define the SQL script for their own demands without coordinating the requested changes with other development groups.
