|20150023179||TRIANGLE LOOPBACK - A method of characterizing a communications channel between two communications nodes, the method comprising: determining at least one feature of a communications path between a first communications node and a second communications node; determining at least one feature of a communications path between the first communications node and a third communications node; transmitting at least one packet from the first node to propagate through the second and third nodes and return to the first node; and determining at least one feature of the communications channel between the second and third nodes responsive to receiving the packet at the first node, the at least one determined feature of the first node and the second node, and/or information comprised in the packet.||01-22-2015|
|20140085141||PLUGGABLE PACKET MASTER CLOCK - Apparatus for providing timing information, the apparatus comprising: a primary reference time clock (PRTC) that provides a reference time of day (ToD) and a reference frequency; a packet master clock that receives the ToD and reference frequency and is configured to distribute timing to a slave clock in accordance with a timing over packet procedure responsive to the ToD and the reference frequency; and a housing that houses the PRTC and packet master clock which may be plugged into a conventional small form factor (SFP) compliant cage to connect the packet master clock to a packet switched network (PSN).||03-27-2014|
|20130210275||SFP SUPER CAGE - An embodiment of the invention provides a super cage for receiving and providing a small form factor pluggable (SFP) communication module with a functionality, the super cage comprising: a sleeve dimensioned to receive an SFP communication module and be plugged into a conventional SFP cage having a socket for receiving an SFP connector of an SFP module; functionality circuitry housed in the sleeve; a cage connector electrically connected to the functionality circuitry and configured to be inserted into the conventional cage socket; and a coupling socket housed in the sleeve that receives an SFP connector of an SFP module and electrically connects the SFP connector to the functionality circuitry.||08-15-2013|
|20130196549||SFP FUNCTIONALITY EXTENDER - Apparatus configured to provide a small form-factor module (SFP) that is plugged into a socket of an SFP cage with a functionality, the apparatus comprising: a connector configured to be inserted into the cage socket; functionality circuitry that is electrically connected to the connector and provides the functionality; and a socket electrically connected to the functionality circuitry configured to receive the connector of a conventional SFP module, and to electrically connect the conventional SFP to the functionality circuitry.||08-01-2013|
|20130089338||COMMUNICATION NETWORK - An optical access network that connects customers to a core network, the access network comprising: a different Optical Network Unit (ONU) connected to each customer; a different head-end device for each ONU that receives data from the core network intended for the ONU and configures the data for transmission to the ONU in accordance with a passive optical network (PON) protocol; and an optical fiber that connects the head-end device to the ONU.||04-11-2013|
|20120275317||TIMING OVER PACKET DEMARCATION ENTITY - Apparatus for monitoring a packet switched network, the apparatus comprising: at least one port for receiving and transmitting packets; a local clock; and a packet inspector that uses time from the local clock to timestamp packets received at a port of the at least one port, and additionally copies timing information from received timing distribution packets, which are transmitted from a master clock to a slave clock in order to discipline the slave clock, and forwards the received packets for transmission from a port of the at least one port; wherein the apparatus uses the timestamp of a received timing distribution packet and the copied timing information to monitor timing distribution performance of the network .||11-01-2012|
|20110115534||OPTICAL FREQUENCY SOURCE - A frequency reference, comprising: an optical waveguide closed on itself so that a light pulse inserted into the waveguide circulates therein; a light source coupled to the waveguide and controllable to generate a light pulse that circulates in the waveguide; and a detector coupled to a region of the waveguide that generates an output pulse each time the circulating light pulse passes the region.||05-19-2011|
