|20150010301||Advertising Layer 0 Network Topology Information to a Layer 3 Network - In one embodiment, techniques are provided to generate a Border Gateway Protocol-Link State (BGP-LS) advertisement message comprising information configured to indicate topological information associated with a Layer 0 (L0) network, where the topological information includes information for connectivity within the L0 network that is available to a Layer 3 (L3) network. The advertisement message is sent to a node in the L3 network. The message sent from the L0 network is received at the node in the L3 network. The topological information in the message is analyzed in order to determine connections available to the L3 network, yet within the L0 network. A connection request is sent from the node in the L3 network to the L0 network and connections between the nodes in L3 network are established using available connections in the L0 network.||01-08-2015|
|20110113190||SECONDARY STORAGE TO REDUCE COUNTER MEMORY IN FLOW TABLES - In one embodiment, a CAM overflow structure holds flow indices in a CAM and each CAM entry is associated with an overflow count value (OCV) entry holding an OCV. If counter in an primary flow-counter bank (PFCB) overflows when updated, the CAM is searched and, if the index of the counter that overflowed is stored in the associated OCV entry, the OCV is incremented. The counter values in the PFCB are scanned according to specified criteria and transferred to a secondary flow-counter bank (SFCB) held in non-custom system RAM. When a counter value is transferred to the SFCB the corresponding OCV is appended to the counter value.||05-12-2011|
|20080205539||Method and System for Achieving Spatial Diversity of a Wireless Communications Network - A method and system are provided for achieving spatial diversity of a wireless communications network. The method comprises arranging antennas on a transmitting wireless station into a plurality of antenna subgroups, wherein each of the antenna subgroups forms a virtual antenna, creating a plurality of beamformed MIMO channels using the plurality of virtual antennas, wherein each of the beamformed MIMO channel comprises a plurality of sub-carriers and corresponds to a virtual antenna, dividing sub-carriers in each of the plurality of beamformed MIMO channels into at least a first and second cluster, distributing a first amount of transmitting power to the first cluster and a second amount of transmitting power to the second cluster, wherein the first amount of transmitting power is substantially larger than the second amount of transmitting power.||08-28-2008|
