Chester A Ruszczyk, Levent Gun: Method, device and router for providing a contention-based reservation mechanism within a mini-slotted dynamic entry polling slot supporting multiple service classes. Motorola, Darleen J Stockley, March 25, 1997: US05615212 (227 worldwide citation)

The entry polling (EP) method (900) of the present invention primarily incorporates two types of polling: contention based and standard polling. The present invention provides several advantages over present polling approaches. EP slots allow multi-priority users to compete for access into the stand ...

International Business Machines Corporation, Gerald R Woods, August 3, 1993: US05233604 (220 worldwide citation)

A packet communications system utilizes a route determining mechanism by identifying principal paths between the source and the destination in the system. Principal paths are minimum hop count paths with a transmission delay less than a specified threshold. Principal path links are accepted as legs ...

A method and system for virtual network administration with a data-over-cable system. A virtual networking tag and a network address (e.g., an Internet Protocol address) assigned by a network other than a data-over-cable system is used to provide a virtual network to one or more network devices, suc ...

Philip F Chimento Jr, Vidyadhar G Kulkarni, Levent Gun: Traffic management in packet communications networks. International Business Machines Corporation, Robert O Nimtz, July 18, 1995: US05434848 (157 worldwide citation)

A packet communications network is adapted for efficiently handling of multi-priority traffic (such as multi-media traffic) by defining an access algorithm that not only ensures the requested loss probabilities for both priorities of traffic, but also optimizes the bandwidth required to carry both p ...

Jeffrey H Derby, John E Drake Jr, Claude Galand, Levent Gun, Gerald A Marin, Allen L Roginsky, Theodore E Tedijanto: Dynamic bandwidth estimation and adaptation for packet communications networks. International Business Machines Corporation, Gerald R Woods, October 25, 1994: US05359593 (155 worldwide citation)

Access control for a packet communications network includes a dynamic bandwidth updating mechanism which continuously monitors the mean bit rate of the signal source and the loss probability of the connection. These values are filtered to remove noise and then used to test whether the values fall wi ...

Rong Feng Chang, John E Drake Jr, Levent Gun, Lap T Huynh: Adaptive rate-based congestion and flow control in packet communications networks. International Business Machines Corporation, Gerald R Woods, November 22, 1994: US05367523 (147 worldwide citation)

An end-to-end, closed loop flow and congestion control system for packet communications networks exchanges rate request and rate response messages between data senders and receivers to allow the sender to adjust the data rate to avoid congestion and to control the data flow. Requests and responses a ...

Hamid Ahmadi, Roch Guerin, Levent Gun: Traffic management in packet communications networks. International Business Machines, Gerald R Woods, Robert O Nimtz, February 22, 1994: US05289462 (120 worldwide citation)

In a packet communications network, the addition or deletion of a connection to the network by a user is governed by a link traffic metric which represents the effective capacity of each link in the network which participates in the packet connection route. The link metric is calculated in real-time ...

An enhanced adaptive rate-based congestion control system for packet transmission networks uses the absolute rather than the relative network queuing delay measure of congestion in the network. Other features of the congestion control system include test transmissions only after a predetermined mini ...
