Title (EN) LOCAL AREA NETWORK INCORPORATING UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS PROTOCOL
(FR) RESEAU LOCAL UTILISANT UN PROTOCOLE DE BUS SERIE UNIVERSEL
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention relates to local area networks typically comprising a LAN hub, a plurality of outer hub devices connected to the LAN hub via a respective plurality of LAN links and a plurality of USB devices and/or LAN computers connected to the plurality of outer hub devices via a respective plurality of USB links. The outer end hubs communicate with the USB devices and LAN computers using USB protocol having time sensitive aspects. To satisfy the requirements of the USB protocol, the outer hub devices perform the time sensitive aspects of the USB protocol. The outer end humbs communicate with the LAN hub using a LAN protocol which permits the outer hub device to be further than 5 meters from the LAN hub. The LAN protocol is typically a variant of the USB protocol.
(FR)L'invention concerne des réseaux locaux (LAN) comprenant généralement un pivot LAN; plusieurs dispositifs pivots extérieurs reliés au pivot LAN par plusieurs liaisons LAN correspondantes et plusieurs dispositifs USB et/ou ordinateurs LAN reliés à plusieurs dispositifs pivots extérieurs par plusieurs liaisons USB correspondantes. Les pivots d'extrémité extérieurs communiquent avec les dispositifs USB et les ordinateurs LAN au moyen d'un protocole USB présentant des aspects temporels critiques. Pour répondre aux exigences du protocole USB, les dispositifs pivots extérieurs exécutent les aspects temporels critiques du protocole USB. Les pivots d'extrémité extérieurs communiquent avec le pivot LAN au moyen d'un protocole LAN qui permet au dispositif pivot extérieur d'être éloigné de plus de cinq mètres du pivot LAN. Le protocole LAN est généralement une variante du protocole USB.
