Maged E Beshai, Richard Vickers: State information and routing table updates in large scale data networks. Nortel Networks, September 13, 2005: US06944131 (67 worldwide citation)

In a communication network comprising nodes and links between the nodes, a controller node disseminates link state information. A nodal routing table exists at each node comprising routes between pairs of nodes. The nodal routing table is either populated by the given node based on network informati ...

Maged E Beshai, Richard Vickers: Burst switching in a high capacity network. Nortel Networks, June 14, 2005: US06907002 (26 worldwide citation)

At a master controller of a space switch in a node in a data network, a request is received from a source node that requests a connection to be established through the space switch. This request is compared to other such requests so that a schedule may be established for access to the space switch. ...

Methods and apparatus for transferring data segments of a data stream across multi-channel links in a high-capacity network, so that the segments are equitably smeared across the channels of each multi-channel link, are described. The high-capacity network comprises a multiplicity of distributed hig ...

Maged E Beshai, Richard Vickers: Multi-grained network. Nortel Networks, Steubing McGuinness & Manaras, April 19, 2005: US06882799 (18 worldwide citation)

A multi-grained network includes edge modules that switch high-variance multi-rate data traffic, and independent core modules that switch paths having different granularities. The core may include core modules that switch fixed-size data blocks, core modules that switch channels or bands of channels ...

John Gerald Gruber, Asghar Ebrahim Methiwalla, Richard Vickers: Method of tracing the route of virtual connections. Northern Telecom, Foley & Lardner, May 4, 1999: US05901141 (100 worldwide citation)

A telecommunications network such as an ATM, Frame Relay or packet based network will be better managed by identifying nodes through which a virtual connection is routed between two end nodes. A new method of tracing the nodes on the route includes sending trace cells downstream of a monitoring node ...

Maged E Beshai, Richard Vickers: Methods and apparatus for distributed control of a multi-class network. Nortel Networks, Allan P Millard, June 11, 2002: US06404735 (46 worldwide citation)

Methods and apparatus for control of a multi-class digital network are described. The network supports a plurality of digital services using dynamically-configured service bands to support various transport modes and qualities of service. Flexible controls with two degrees of freedom are used at the ...
