shortcut links. We propose its adaptation to Ethernet, using a new type of hierarchical Ethernet addresses and a procedure to assign them to bridges. We show that compared to RSTP, TRE offers improved throughput. The impact of transient loops in TRE is lower compared to the application of the classical shortest path routing protocols to Ethernet. Finally,(More)
UNLABELLED Airway management in patients with penetrating neck trauma must guarantee cervical spine stability. Moreover, the prone position increases the risk of difficult ventilation and cervical spine injury. A 19-yr-old patient was brought to the emergency room in prone position with a drill bit protruding from the posterolateral aspect of his neck. The(More)
Ethernet switched networks do not scale appropriately due to limitations inherent to the spanning tree protocol. Ethernet architectures based on routing over a virtual topology in which turns are prohibited offer improved performance over spanning tree, although in some cases suffer from excessive computational complexity. Up/Down routing is a turn(More)
over all links, to discover the minimum latency path to the destination host, complemented in the opposite direction by the ARP Reply packet directed to the source host. Implementations show that the protocol is loop free, does not block links, is fully transparent to hosts and neither needs a spanning tree protocol to prevent loops nor a link state(More)
The demo is focused on the implementation of ARP-Path (a.k.a. FastPath) bridges, a recently proposed concept for low latency bridges. ARP-Path Bridges rely on the race between broadcast ARP Request packets, to discover the minimum latency path to the destination host. Several implementations (in Omnet++, Linux, OpenFlow, NetFPGA) have shown that ARP-Path(More)
In this paper we propose Fast Path Ethernet, an evolution of the transparent bridges learning mechanisms to increase infrastructure utilization for campus and datacenter networks in a simple way. Fast Path Ethernet Switches reuse standard ARP Request and Reply packets to set up fast on-demand paths between hosts. This architecture uses the standard Ethernet(More)
