In the present invention, a wireless station bridge sets a virtual interface mac address for an ethernet device, so that the ethernet device connected to the wireless station bridge has a corresponding mac address in a wireless local area network, and therefore, the ethernet device can access the wireless local area network by using a bridging function of the wireless station bridge..
|Ethernet differentiated services conditioning|
A network includes an edge node configured to define the per-hop behaviors using a set of bits in an ethernet header of a frame and a core node configured to receive the frame and to forward the frame according to the per-hop-behaviors. The network can also include a defined set of differentiated service classes, each differentiated service class associated with the set of per-hop behaviors, indicated in the set of priority bits.
|Ring protection state aware bandwidth adaptation|
For performing link adaptation in an ethernet ring protection system, a link management controller (180) determines a ring protection state of an ethernet protection ring. Further, the link management controller (180) adapts bandwidth of a link (25) of the ethernet protection ring.
|Network relay device|
In a chassis-type network relay device, fault tolerance for the continuity monitoring function of ethernet (registered trademark) oam is improved. A first management card and a second management card serving as a main management card and a backup management card have continuity monitoring units which generate monitoring frames for checking continuity between devices and transmit the monitoring frames to a given line card, respectively.
|Video clone for a display matrix|
Systems, methods, and computer-readable and executable instructions are provided for providing a video clone to a display matrix. Providing a video clone to a display matrix can include utilizing a computing device to transfer video images via ethernet to a network interface controller (nic) device 602.
