Digital fiber link transporting multiple analog bands for agile conversion


A digital (fiber optic) link transports one or more rf digital signal blocks, that when converted into analog and (optionally) converted to a rf center frequency with an d-a converter, form rf analog signal blocks. The rf analog signal block occupies a specified frequency band and is preferably capable of being distributed over a downstream coaxial portion of a hfc network and/or being broadcast.

Modified ethernet preamble for inter line card communications in a modular communication chassis


A method of providing information regarding an ethernet frame, within the ethernet preamble of the ethernet frame, comprises inserting into the ethernet preamble an inter-line-card header that includes a start control character, a version number, a parity bit, a source port, a destination port, and a forwarding domain entry; and preserving said inter-line-card header, inside of said ethernet preamble, in a media access control (mac) sub-layer in said ethernet frame. The method may include a step of selecting the decoding format for the inter-line-card header corresponding to the version number and/or forwarding other ethernet frames according to additional forwarding information provided by the forwarding domain entry.

System and transferring message in ethernet based vehicle network


An ethernet based vehicle network message transferring system is provided that includes a gateway switch that connects the ethernet to vehicle networks having different protocols and an ethernet switch that switches ethernet messages between the gateway switch and vehicle devices to transfer the ethernet messages. The ethernet switch includes a processing module that transfers the ethernet messages received via the gateway switch in the different vehicle networks, a vehicle network process module that switches the messages transferred from the processing module, and a lookup table in which information necessary for switching the vehicle network process module is stored.

Method and system for traffic engineered mpls ethernet switch


Embodiments of the disclosure are directed to implementing a router media access control (mac) ethernet switch in a network. An embodiment receives, from a first multiprotocol label switching (mpls) router, at least one data packet with a router mac address identifying a second mpls router; automatically learns the router mac address identifying the second mpls router; accesses information to determine the internet protocol (ip) address of the second mpls router based on the learned router mac address; and transmits the at least one data packet to the second mpls router..
