Patent Number Title Of Patent Date Issued
8149731 Technique for transferring data over a packet switched network April 3, 2012
A technique transfers data over a packet-switched network (PSN), comprising a plurality of intermediate nodes, in a manner that does not require that the intermediate nodes support a network layer infrastructure. A network controller coupled to the intermediate nodes acquires topolog
7054277 Method and apparatus for preventing loops within a data stitching network element May 30, 2006
The present invention discloses a method and apparatus for preventing a layer-2 forwarding loop from being created within a network element (NE). Specifically, the present invention is used to prevent a loop from being formed within a NE by multiple data stitches for the same data circui
6934262 Method and apparatus for restricting the assignment of VLANs August 23, 2005
Restricting the assignment of VLANs so that a unique VLAN or set of VLANs must be assigned to each link for a particular network circuit (NC) or group of NCs. NCs are prevented from being assignd a particular VLAN if the addition of the VLAN assignment will create a mix-match topology,
