NEW YORK, July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ICAP Patent Brokerage announces for sale a network acceleration and power reduction IP portfolio from SeaFire Micros, Inc. This IP package will be included in the upcoming sealed bid event taking place on September 26, 2013. Bids for this lot will be accepted starting September 24 through September 26.
"Increased bandwidth utilization at low power is integral to high quality service in all areas of network communications. Due to the key advantages this IP portfolio discloses, it is extremely relevant to firms manufacturing networking equipment, and those wishing to maximize data transfer at reduced power in servers, datacenters, or cloud computing services," says Dean Becker, CEO of ICAP Patent Brokerage.
Key Characteristics & Benefits
As the Internet has grown, the available network bandwidth has increased along with the average data transfer rate, but present systems are still unable to fully utilize the bandwidth and minimize consumed power. This IP package provides a solution to this persistent issue via improved techniques for processing or handling data at a host device, such as a server or smart phone, in a communication network. The technology for sale facilitates increased transfer rate and reduced power consumption for high-speed networking equipment manufacturers, datacenters, or cloud computing services.
In detail, headers and data of a network packet are separated and processed by unique arrangement of the network interface controller (NIC), application, and operating system (OS). Therefore, less time and processing power of the OS and central processing unit is consumed for managing the data packets. This eliminates the need for a costly NIC to independently manage the data processing. Also, the OS has full control over the data packets, which ensures security of the host device. Furthermore, relevant feedback about network traffic and data flow is received by the OS from the NIC, which may help the OS in making various decisions based on network traffic. The disclosed technique can maximize the use of available network bandwidth, thereby, using architecture that optimizes data transfer over networks at extremely high speeds but at reduced power.
