Chipcom Corporation, McGlew and Tuttle, April 5, 1994: US05301303 (104 worldwide citation)

A local net area network, or LAN, configuration is provided with a multiple generic LAN channel architecture which can be logically and dynamically changed. The configuration control can be applied to each module of the network and to each port of a module of a LAN hub. The architecture provides mul ...

Carl Lindeborg, Edward Carroll, James Moran, David Bartolini, John Griesing, Liz Lindell, Anthony Dean Walker, Bradley S Trubey: Method and apparatus for address to port mapping in a token ring network. International Business Machines Coporation, 3Com Corporation, McGlew and Tuttle, July 8, 1997: US05646939 (13 worldwide citation)

A token ring network performs address to port mapping by taking advantage of the abilities of the port switched modules and the neighbor notification process, in order to perform address to port mapping on each individual module. Ring monitors are switched from an upstream side of a port to a downst ...

Carl Lindeborg, Edward Carroll, James Moran, David Bartolini, John Griesing, Liz Lindell, Anthony D Walker, Bradley S Trubey: Method and apparatus for correcting a defect in a token ring network. IBM, 3COM Corporation, McGlew and Tuttle, February 11, 1997: US05602827 (9 worldwide citation)

Beacon recovery is performed separately on each module. After a module recognizes that a beacon condition has occurred, each module checks to determine if the defect or fault is on its module. If the defect is on the respective module, the module disconnects itself from the remaining modules in the ...
