Bridge apparatus and a communication system between networks using the bridge apparatus

Image Number 18 for United States Patent #5220562.

Frontend LANs connecting plural stations are connected to plural nodes of a backbone LAN respectively. The backbone LAN is constituted by plural physical or logical links, and each node corresponds to each frontend LAN. A first data block is segmented into one or plural second data block units of fixed length and transferred to destination nodes, a bridge is provided in order to assemble the second data blocks into the first data block. The bridge can transmit the second data blocks to arbitrary links, and the receiving is performed through one link. The bridge a decoder also has a decoder for decoding whether the learning should be performed or not, based on the learning indication information existing in the second data block including the routing information.
