NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) July 02, 2015
ICAP Patent Brokerage announces for sale a patent disclosing a method for increasing the effective serving rate of a network router or base station configured to receive and transmit packets, available from PAD Innovations, LLC. This portfolio is offered as part of the Internet of Things IP Auction, with a bidding deadline of July 30th, 2015.
“With an early priority date of 1999, this patent should be of interest to networking companies, especially those involved in the manufacture of routers and base stations,” says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage.
Key Characteristics & Benefits
With priority dates from 1999, this portfolio offers benefits for network routers or base stations. In particular, the patent covers a buffer size for a router configured to receive packets transmitted through a communications network that is temporarily increased at a time instant corresponding to an onset of congestion of the router for a time period that may be approximately equal to a round-trip packet time in the network. The increase in buffer size may be accomplished by providing an auxiliary storage area for packets that would otherwise be stored in a queue at the router, for example an auxiliary storage area associated with a physical storage device external to the router. The patent provides a major insight into behavior of network traffic. While most congestion schemes treat network traffic as random, the ‘355 patent provides a method to estimate the network traffic. The method imposes a shock on the system to clear congestion at the moment of its onset.
Forward citing companies include Ericsson, Microsoft, Qualcomm, and the University Of California.
