A computer-implemented method for packet switching in a transport network is described. The method comprises receiving a data packet at a first data switching device, the data packet having an existing header and being received from a customer network, the first data switching device being an edge node of a transport network. Encapsulating the data packet using a transport network header, the transport network header having a data structure that includes a transport device address space and a virtual local area network, VLAN, indicator space. Encapsulating the data packet includes setting a first portion of bits within the transport device address space, such that the first portion of bits indicates a data switching device address that is a node within the transport network. Encapsulating the data packet includes setting a second portion of bits within the transport device address space, such that the second portion of bits indicates a flow identifier. Selecting a forwarding path to a next-hop node of the transport network by using the flow identifier from the transport device address space as computational input for selecting the forwarding path. Forwarding the data packet to the next-hop node in the transport network using the selected forwarding path.


Implementations relate to configuration of networks using client device access of a remote server. In some implementations, a method includes requesting a management server from an end device for shortest path bridging (SPB) configuration information for the end device to communicate on an SPB network, where the end device communicates with the management server over a non-SPB connection. The SPB configuration information is received from the management server, and the SPB configuration information is sent to an edge configuration device connected to the end device, where the SPB configuration information causes configuration of the edge configuration device to allow communication of the end device on the SPB network.


A telecommunication device includes an image capture system that captures an image of a local participant in a telecommunication session, the image comprising foreground and background images defined by plural pixels, each of the pixels having a pixel magnitude related to a sample of the image at a spatial location of the respective pixel and a background modifier that segments plural pixels of the captured image into foreground and background sets of pixels, replaces the background set of pixels with a template set of pixels to form a new background set of pixels, selected pixels in the template set of pixels having a different magnitude than a magnitude of the corresponding pixel in the background set of pixels replaced by the selected pixel, and combines the new background set of pixels with the foreground set of pixels to form modified image information for transmission to a remote endpoint. A background selector selects the template set of pixels from among multiple template sets of pixels based on an attribute of a remote endpoint or remote participant associated with the remote endpoint.

Embodiments disclosed herein provide systems and methods for acoustically transferring information between systems. In a particular embodiment, a method provides identifying information for acoustic transfer and determining an amount of time corresponding to the information. The method further provides acoustically transmitting a signal at a first time and, upon the amount of time elapsing since the first time, acoustically transmitting the signal at a second time.


Implementations relate to configuration of networks using switch device access of a remote server. In some implementations, a method includes sending a request from an edge configuration device to an access control server, where the request requests shortest path bridging (SPB) configuration information for a detected end device connected to the edge configuration device, and where the edge configuration device is connected to an SPB network. The method receives at the edge configuration device the SPB configuration information for the end device from the access control server. The edge configuration device is configured to provide the end device access to the SPB network.


System and method to adjust an automatic speech recognition (ASR) engine, the method including: receiving social network information from a social network; data mining the social network information to extract one or more characteristics; inferring a trend from the extracted one or more characteristics; and adjusting the ASR engine based upon the inferred trend. Embodiments of the method may further include: receiving a speech signal from a user; and recognizing the speech signal by use of the adjusted ASR engine. Further embodiments of the method may include: producing a list of candidate matching words; and ranking the list of candidate matching words by use of the inferred trend.

A flow based routing method and apparatus selects a path from a plurality of different paths for assignment to a flow. The path is selected based on traffic performance measurements which identify relative congestion and performance of the different paths, so that traffic flows can be diverted away from network congestion points, thereby allowing network resources to be load balanced at a flow granularity. The present invention may be configured on physical or virtual links on an NE to enhance the forwarding of packets using the primary link and one or more alternate links to any given destination.


A request to subscribe to QoS information is received from a monitoring element. A monitoring element may be a centralized communication system, such as a Private Branch Exchange (PBX). The QoS information is from a plurality of network elements at a plurality of locations. A network element may be, for example, a communication endpoint, a router, a media server, and/or the like. The QoS information is based on a location map that includes information for the plurality of locations. The plurality of locations are controlled by separate communication systems. A determination is made whether a threshold for the QoS information has been reached. If the threshold for the QoS information has reach reached, a notification is sent to the monitoring element. Upon receiving the notification, the monitoring element can cause an action to occur to address a QoS problem.


A method and apparatus for automated mirroring is presented. A network device running as a Fabric Attach (FA) server configured to mirror traffic to a Remote Switch Port Analyzer (RSPAN) Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN), issues an FA Type Length Value (TLV) on its uplink to the FA server. The TLV includes a request to associate said RSPAN VLAN with a Service Identifier (I-SID) used to carry mirror traffic in a network. The network device sends the mirrored traffic on the RSPAN VLAN on its uplink to the FA server. The network device signals the I-SID into the network, and detects receive interest in the I-SID. The network device delivers the mirrored traffic to devices that expressed a receive interest in the mirrored traffic.
