OCS granted US patent 9338531 on input status adaptive network multiplexing
Jersey City, NJ - The invention enables intelligent sharing of network data paths among multiple access points. The patent 9338531 can be viewed at:
10 November 2015 - Announcement
OCS granted US patent 9182997 on enabling techniques for Software Defined Networking (SDN) and more broadly on Software Defined Infrastructure (SDI)
Jersey City, NJ - The invention enables direct, binary file transfer based network and remote infrastructure management that avoids the complexity, restrictions and performance drawbacks of intermediate messaging protocols, transaction languages and conversions thereof. Conventional network management system performance degrades when the management capabilities are most urgently needed, e.g., during bursts of messaging and transaction triggering network events such as major network failures. In contrast, the invention provides transparent and flexible operational capabilities with architecturally improved scalability, reliability and performance, especially under heavy load of network management and network data plane event activities.
