Mohan Kalkunte, Jayant Kadambi, Jim Mangin, Shashank Merchant: Method and apparatus for prioritizing traffic in half-duplex networks. Advanced Micro Devices, December 22, 1998: US05852723 (63 worldwide citation)

Collision delay intervals are modified in Ethernet network devices transmitting priority data requiring a guaranteed latency by multiplying an integer multiple number of slot times with a fractional coefficient. A network device having priority data for transmission uses the conventional Truncated B ...

Jim Mangin, Jayant Kadambi, Mohan Kalkunte: Arrangement for regulating packet flow rate in shared-medium, point-to-point, and switched networks. Advanced Micro Devices, November 9, 1999: US05982778 (46 worldwide citation)

Delay times are modified in full-duplex Ethernet network devices by calculating in each network station a delay interval based on a size of a transmitted data packet and a desired transmission rate. The network station waits the calculated delay time before transmitting another data packet, ensuring ...

Jim Mangin, Shashank Merchant, Mohan Kalkunte: Arrangement for initiating and maintaining flow control in shared-medium, full-duplex, and switched networks. Advanced Micro Devices, May 18, 1999: US05905870 (40 worldwide citation)

Flow control signals in half-duplex and full-duplex networks are initiated and maintained based on the detected number of data bytes stored in a receive buffer from payload data of received data packets. If the number of stored data bytes exceeds a predetermined threshold, the network interface init ...

Mohan Kalkunte, Jayant Kadambi, Jim Mangin: Arrangement for accessing media in a network having universal multiple access nodes and carrier sense nodes. Advanced Micro Devices, June 30, 1998: US05774658 (26 worldwide citation)

A network includes a combination of carrier-sense stations and Universal Multiple Access (UMA) stations using a time slot multiple access protocol. The network is configured to include assigned time slots for the respective UMA stations and unassigned time slots reserved for the carrier-sense statio ...

Mohan Kalkunte, Gopal Krishna, Jim Mangin: Method and apparatus for adding a randomized propagation delay interval to an interframe spacing in a station accessing an ethernet network. Advanced Micro Devices, December 15, 1998: US05850525 (23 worldwide citation)

Delay times are modified in Ethernet network devices by adding a randomized time interval generated in accordance with a propagation delay between two network stations. A server in a client-server arrangement is given priority access over clients by adding to the clients' InterPacket Gap (IPG) inter ...

Mohan Kalkunte, Jayant Kadambi, Jim Mangin, Gopal Krishna: Rotating priority arrangement in an ethernet network. Advanced Micro Devices, July 21, 1998: US05784375 (19 worldwide citation)

Delay times are modified in Ethernet network devices by adding an integer multiple of a delay interval to the minimum interpacket gap (IPG) interval, and decrementing the integer in each network station in response to detected activity on the media. Each station has a unique integer value from the r ...

Mohan Kalkunte, Jim Mangin: Method and apparatus avoiding capture effect by adding a slot time to an interpacket gap interval in a station accessing an ethernet network. Advanced Micro Devices, December 29, 1998: US05854900 (18 worldwide citation)

Delay times are modified in Ethernet network devices by adding a slot time to the minimum interpacket gap (IPG) interval between uninterrupted consecutive transmissions by a network station. If a network station transmits a data packet and has another data packet to send, modified delay time prevent ...

Jayant Kadambi, Mohan Kalkunte, Jim Mangin: Determining the number of active nudes on an ethernet network by counting a number of packet receptions. Advanced Micro Devices, November 17, 1998: US05838688 (16 worldwide citation)

Delay times are modified in Ethernet network devices by adding an integer multiple of a delay interval to the minimum interpacket gap (IPG) interval, and decrementing a deferral counter storing the integer in each network station in response to detected activity on the media. Each station independen ...
