Yakov Rekhter: Efficient packet forwarding arrangement for routing packets in an internetwork. Cisco Technology, Cesari and McKenna, June 29, 1999: US05917820 (159 worldwide citation)

An improved packet forwarding arrangement for making quick and efficient next hop determinations through the creation and exchange of router-unique tags used as an index into a novel database of route information. The improved packet forwarding system operates independently of connectionless network ...


Rahul Aggarwal, Yakov Rekhter: Resource reservation protocol with traffic engineering point to multi-point label switched path hierarchy. Juniper Networks, Shumaker & Sieffert P A, August 31, 2010: US07787380 (136 worldwide citation)

The invention is directed toward techniques for Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) upstream label assignment for the Resource Reservation Protocol with Traffic Engineering (RSVP-TE). The techniques include extensions to the RSVP-TE that enable distribution of upstream assigned labels in Path mess ...

Dino Farinacci, Yakov Rekhter: Hierarchical routing knowledge for multicast packet routing. Cisco Technology, Swernofsky Law Group, June 20, 2000: US06078590 (83 worldwide citation)

The invention provides a method and system for multicast packet routing, in which only selected routers in a network subset (in a preferred embodiment, those routers on the border of the domain) maintain routing information external to the network subset, while all other routers in the network subse ...

Rahul Aggarwal, Yakov Rekhter: Inter-autonomous system (AS) multicast virtual private networks. Juniper Networks, Shumaker & Sieffert P A, June 7, 2011: US07957386 (80 worldwide citation)

Principles of the invention are described for providing multicast virtual private networks (MVPNs) across a public network that are capable of carrying high-bandwidth multicast traffic with increased scalability. In particular, the MVPNs may transport layer three (L3) multicast traffic, such as Inte ...

Kireeti Kompella, Manoj Leelanivas, Ping Pan, Yakov Rekhter: Graceful restart for use in nodes employing label switched path signaling protocols. Juniper Networks, Straub and Pokotylo, John C Pokotylo, April 15, 2008: US07359377 (72 worldwide citation)

When a node has to restart its control component, or a (e.g., label-switched path signaling) part of its control component, if that node can preserve its forwarding information across the restart, the effects of such restarts on label switched path(s) the include the restarting node are minimized. A ...

Yakov Rekhter: Edge devices for providing a transparent LAN segment service and configuring such edge devices. Junpier Networks, Straub and Pokotylo, John C Pokotylo, December 9, 2008: US07463639 (64 worldwide citation)

A transport LAN segment service is provided over a transport network. The transport network will include edge devices configured to support one or more transparent LAN segments. Configuration is simplified by advertising TLS-port-label information, layer 2 address learning, and multicasting when the ...
