Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR SEGMENTING A COMMUNICATION NETWORK
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCEDE DE SEGMENTATION D'UN RESEAU DE COMMUNICATION
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A gateway (400) is used to segment a network, such as a Fault Tolerant Ethernet (FTE) network, into islands . The gateway (400) receives traffic from a first island, forwards part of the traffic to a second island, and blocks another part of the traffic from being forwarded to the second island. The forwarded traffic could include unicast traffic. The blocked traffic could include broadcast or multicast traffic, including diagnostic messages from one or more nodes in the first island.
(FR)Selon l'invention, une passerelle (400) est utilisée pour segmenter un réseau, de type réseau Ethernet tolérant aux défauts (FTE), en îlots. La passerelle (400) reçoit un trafic en provenance d'un premier îlot, transmet une partie du trafic vers un deuxième îlot, et bloque la transmission d'une autre partie du trafic vers le deuxième îlot. Le trafic transmis peut être un trafic d'unidiffusion. Le trafic bloqué peut être un trafic de diffusion ou de multidiffusion, notamment des messages diagnostiques provenant d'un ou de plusieurs noeuds dans le premier îlot.
