Title: (DE) VERFAHREN ZUM ERWEITERN DER PHYSISCHEN REICHWEITE EINES INFINIBAND-NETZWERKS
(EN) A METHOD TO EXTEND THE PHYSICAL REACH OF AN INFINIBAND NETWORK
(FR) PROCÉDÉ DESTINÉ À ÉTENDRE LA PORTÉE PHYSIQUE D'UN RÉSEAU INFINIBAND
Abstract: front page image
(EN) A system for an apparatus for extending the physical reach of an InfiniBand network. Methods and apparatus can connect an InfiniBand network to a long distance connection (e.g. WAN) while maintaining full 10Gbit InfiniBand speeds and retaining the semantics specified by the InfiniBand Architecture (IBTA). A system can include an InfiniBand interface, a management block, packet routing, encapsulation/de-encapsulation, bulk memory buffer, and WAN interface, logic and circuits. The invention is applicable to efficiently moving large amounts of data over large distances using a single transport stream.
(FR) L'invention concerne un système destiné à un appareil servant à étendre la portée physique d'un réseau InfiniBand. Les procédés et l'appareil peuvent connecter un réseau InfiniBand à une connexion longue distance (par exemple WAN) tout en maintenant des vitesses InfiniBand 10Gbit entières et en conservant les sémantiques spécifiées par l'architecture InfiniBand (IBTA). Un système peut comprendre une interface InfiniBand, un bloc de gestion, un routage de paquet, une encapsulation/désencapsulation, un tampon de mémoire de masse et une interface WAN, une logique et des circuits. La mention peut être appliquée à une grande quantité de données à mouvement efficace sur de grandes distances au moyen d'un flux de transport unique.
