Title: LOSSLESS SOCKET-BASED LAYER 4 TRANSPORT (RELIABILITY) SYSTEM FOR A CONVERGED ETHERNET NETWORK
Abstract:
A reliability system for a Converged Enhanced Ethernet network may include a plurality of end points each comprising a layer 4 transport layer, where each end point is connected to a data center bridging (DCB) layer 2 network. The system may also include an adaptor between the layer 4 transport layer and the DCB layer 2 network to translate at least one of flow and congestion control feedback signals, provided by at least one of the DCB network and the transport layer, to consolidated feedback signals for controlling transmission by the transport layer.
