Nancy Karen Feldman, Arun Viswanathan, Richard M Woundy, Richard H Boivie: Aggregation of data flows on switched network paths. International Business Machines Corporation, May 30, 2000: US06069889 (53 worldwide citation)

In networks that use the label switching paradigm, labels are typically allocated to a "flow", where a flow is identified as an end-to-end connection between two or more user applications. This approach may quickly lead to exhaustion of the label space, because the number of user connections across ...

This invention discloses a way to map IP or similar routing information onto a technology that uses label switching and swapping, such as ATM, without the need to change the network paradigm. This allows a network to continue to function and appear as a standard IP network, but with much higher perf ...
