Pedro R Marques: Distribution of traffic flow criteria. Juniper Networks, Shumaker & Sieffert P A, August 10, 2010: US07773596 (160 worldwide citation)

Traffic flow criteria are distributed between routing devices. More specifically, a routing protocol, such as the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), may be extended in a manner that allows fine-grain criteria to be conveyed for application to network traffic. For example, a flow specification data type ...

Rajashekar Reddy, Ankur Singla, Harshad Nakil, Pedro R Marques, Ashish Ranjan: Automatic configuration of virtual network switches. Juniper Networks, Shumaker & Sieffert P A, July 13, 2010: US07756027 (53 worldwide citation)

In general, techniques are described in which a plurality of network switches automatically configure themselves to operate as a single virtual network switch. A virtual switch is a collection of individual switch devices that operate like as single network switch. As described herein, network switc ...

Constraint information associated with peering links is taken into account when establishing label switched paths (LSPs) to exit points of a network. Devices within the network, such as routers, designate interfaces associated with peering links as “passive interfaces” to indicate that the interface ...

Pedro R Marques, Steven Lin: Routing protocol failover between control units within a network router. Juniper Networks, Shumaker & Sieffert P A, August 26, 2008: US07417947 (21 worldwide citation)

A device includes a primary control unit and a standby control unit. The standby control unit records routing communications exchanged between the primary control unit and an external routing device in accordance with a routing protocol. A standby routing process executing on the standby control uni ...

Ina Minei, Pedro R Marques: Traffic engineering using extended bandwidth accounting information. Juniper Networks, Shumaker & Sieffert P A, July 28, 2009: US07567512 (20 worldwide citation)

A system distributes extended traffic accounting information of bandwidth availability on links throughout a network. For example, routers within the network utilize an extended reservation protocol to calculate bandwidth availability information for links. In calculating the bandwidth availability ...

Pedro R Marques: Providing transparent virtual private network connectivity across intermediate networks. Juniper Networks, Shumaker & Sieffert P A, December 7, 2010: US07848310 (18 worldwide citation)

A routing protocol, such as the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), is extended in a manner that allows the protocol to opaquely carry routing attributes associated with an origin of a routing advertisement, e.g., a customer network of associated with a virtual private network (VPN). These attributes are ...
