The air deflection plug-in box includes a front vertical plate with one or more vent holes, a rear vertical plate with one or more vent holes, two side vertical plates with suspension loops and an air deflection diaphragm arranged to isolate air areas, wherein the front vertical plate, the rear vertical plate, the two side vertical plates and the air deflection diaphragm are fixedly connected into a whole to distinctively guide cold airflow on one side of the air deflection diaphragm and guide hot airflow on the other side of the air deflection diaphragm, one or more thermal barriers are also arranged on at least one surface of the air deflection diaphragm, and each thermal barrier is made from thermal insulation material.
Routing method reducing the consequences of microloops
The invention concerns a method for routing a packet in a packet switching network in disconnected routing mode, implemented by a router, comprising the following steps:—receiving (e1) the packet;—reading (e2) a field, called the longevity field of the packet, intended to be decremented when traversing a router;—decrementing (e5) the value of the longevity field using a step of a predefined value, called the decrementation step;—deciding (e6) on the routing of the packet on the basis of the value of the decremented longevity field, the packet being destroyed (e7) when said value is less than or equal to zero; the method further comprising, prior to the step of decrementing, the following steps:—obtaining (e3) at least one item of information from a group of items of information comprising an item of information relative to routing conditions of the packet and an item of information relative to parameters of the packet;—determining (e4) the value of the decrementation step on the basis of at least the obtained information.. .
