Maged E Beshai: Self-configuring distributed switch. Mcguinness Manaras, June 12, 2007: US07230952 (11 worldwide citation)

A method of interleaving time-critical data packets and delay-tolerant data packets on a shared channel emanating from a control port of a switching node permits a strict time requirement for transmission of time-critical data packets to be met. A control circuit of the switching node stores a local ...

Maged E Beshai: Large-scale packet switch. Maged E Beshai, October 19, 2010: US07817627 (7 worldwide citation)

A switching node comprises edge nodes interconnected by independent switch units. The switch units are arranged in at least one switch plane and the switch units of each switch plane are arranged in a matrix having several rows and several columns. Each edge node has a channel to a switch unit in ea ...

Maged E Beshai, Richard Vickers: Multi-grained network. Nortel Networks, Anderson Gorecki & Manaras, March 23, 2010: US07684388 (2 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 ...

Maged E Beshai: Multimodal data switch. Nortel Networks, Anderson Gorecki & Manaras, December 29, 2009: US07639678 (2 worldwide citation)

A transit memory assembly of a rotator-based switching node is logically partitioned into two sections, one operated as a common-memory switch fabric and the other as a time-shared space-switch fabric. The composition of data received at input ports of the switching node determines adaptive capacity ...
