PON ONU Configured In The Form Of A Gigabit Interface Converter (GBIC),
December 24, 2013
A Passive Optical Network (PON) component, such as a Gigabit Interface Converter (GBIC) or similar pluggable transceiver, provides the combined functionality of the GBIC (or similar device) and an Optical Network Unit (ONU). The result is a device with a reduced form factor by eliminating redundant components and simplified fault management of the end-system.
Communication Devices That Utilize Various Communication Networks To Satisfy Communication Needs Of Device Applications,
November 26, 2013
Communication devices may utilize services of multiple communication networks to obtain service for the various applications that the communication device provides. The communication device and/or one or more communication networks may determine which network is best suited to each application based on dynamic information regarding the service provided by each communication network. The application may be associated with a network at various times, such as upon the communication device encountering a network that supports a service needed by the application and/or upon initial invocation of the application. The communication device may be communicating with several communication networks simultaneously so that a single application may make use of multiple communication networks and/or so that multiple applications may each utilize different networks.
Methods And Systems For Providing An Asymmetric Ethernet Service,
November 12, 2013
Methods and systems for providing asymmetric Ethernet service are disclosed. An example method to provide asymmetric Ethernet service to a subscriber includes communicating at least a first portion of a subscriber data communication via a first asymmetric Ethernet connection between a first asymmetric Ethernet modem at a point of service and a second asymmetric Ethernet modem at a service provider location, communicating at least a second portion of the subscriber data communication via a second asymmetric Ethernet connection between a third asymmetric Ethernet modem at the point of service and a fourth asymmetric Ethernet modem at the service provider location, wherein the first and second asymmetric Ethernet connections provide a faster aggregated download bandwidth than an aggregated upload bandwidth to provide an asymmetric Ethernet connection between the point of service and the service provider location, and aggregating the first and second portions of the subscriber data communication for transmission to an Ethernet data network.
Methods, Systems And Computer Program Products For Modifying Bandwidth And/Or Quality Of Service For A User Session In A Network,
August 27, 2013
Bandwidth and/or Quality of Service (QoS) for a user session may be modified in a network that includes a Regional/Access Network (RAN) that facilitates differentiated end-to-end data transport between a Network Service Provider (NSP) and/or an Application Service Provider (ASP) and a Customer Premises Network (CPN) that includes a Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) by receiving a request at the NSP and/or the ASP to change the bandwidth and/or QoS associated with the user's session. An Application Programming Interface (API) is used at the NSP and/or the ASP to communicate with the RAN to modify the bandwidth and/or QoS associated with the user's session.
Methods, Systems And Computer Program Products For Marking Data Packets Based On Content Thereof,
August 20, 2013
A method of encoding data for distribution over a network includes determining a relative importance of content of a data packet associated with a predetermined class-of-service as compared to content of other data packets associated with the predetermined class-of-service. The data packet is marked to indicate the relative importance of the content thereof within the predetermined class-of-service. For example, based on the information contained in the data packet, the data packet may be marked as discard-eligible. The data packet is selectively discarded based on the marking thereof. Related methods, systems, and devices are also discussed.
