Data sending and receiving system for packet switching network
Digital data communication adapter
Inter-subsystem communication system
System for controllably eliminating bits from packet information field based on indicator in header and amount of data in packet buffer
Computer system having different communications facilities and data transfer processes between different computers Patent #: 5247616
AbstractThis invention relates to an apparatus and method for reducing the transmission of data on a data communications network by obtaining data from a cache rather than by transmitting the data. This method maintains an indexed cache of data from previous transmissions. Then, when duplicate information is to be transmitted, it can be replaced by a flag and an index to the cached data. This reduces the amount of data to be transmitted and increases the apparent rate of transfer.
