Tricci Y So, Lawrence G Roberts, Faizel Z Lakhani, John A McBrayne, Gary G Croke: Micro-flow label switching. Caspian Networks, Martine Penilla & Gencarella, March 14, 2006: US07012919 (139 worldwide citation)

An invention is provided for affording an aggregate micro-flow having intelligent load balancing. Initially, a set of label switched paths (LSPs) is defined for a network domain. Then, as the network receives a set of data packets, a micro-flow comprising the set of data packets is defined. In addit ...

New switching technology relies upon state information for providing a previously unavailable degree of quality of service. In particular, by providing the ability to give service guarantees to uniquely identifiable sets of packets (“micro-flows”), different qualities of service can be offered for e ...
