System And Method Of Sub-Surface System Design And Installation

View page
US Patent:
8155935, Apr 10, 2012
Filed:
Sep 24, 2010
Appl. No.:
12/889831
Inventors:
Robert E. Meiners - Anchor IL,
Chad R. Meiners - Burlington MA,
International Classification:
G06F 17/50
G08G 5/00
US Classification:
703 2, 703 6, 701208, 701213, 701215, 37348
Abstract:
The system and method of the present invention provides comprehensive design and installation management for agricultural water management systems. Maps and grade profiles are created from data collected by Global Positioning devices in the field. Latitude, longitude, and elevation are triangulated from GPS data to develop contour, grade, and profile maps, used to design drainage systems in real time. Customer billing information and vendor pricing information are produced from map and grade profile data. Interfacing and machine control for machines used to install drainage and/or irrigation systems are generated from contour, grade and profile data. Data is exported and imported in common file formats for efficient data exchange.

Bit Weaving Technique For Compressing Packet Classifiers

View page
US Patent:
8375165, Feb 12, 2013
Filed:
Jan 6, 2011
Appl. No.:
12/985407
Inventors:
Xiang-Yang A. Liu - Okemos MI,
Chad R. Meiners - East Lansing MI,
Eric Torng - East Lansing MI,
Assignee:
Board of Trustees of Michigan State University - East Lansing MI
International Classification:
G06F 12/00
US Classification:
711108, 711173
Abstract:
An improved technique is provided for compressing a packet classifier for a computer network system. A set of packet classification rules is first partitioned into one or more partitions. For each partition, columns of bits in each of the ternary strings of a given partition are reordered, the ternary strings within each partition are consolidated into one or more replacement strings and then the columns of bits of the replacement strings are rearranged back to the starting order. The rearranged replacement strings from each of the partitions are appended together to form a compressed packet classifier which may be instantiated in a content-addressable memory device.

Efficient Tcam-Based Packet Classification Using Multiple Lookups And Classifier Semantics

US Patent:
8462786, Jun 11, 2013
Filed:
Aug 13, 2010
Appl. No.:
12/855992
Inventors:
Alex X. Liu - Okemos MI,
Chad R. Meiners - East Lansing MI,
Eric Torng - East Lansing MI,
Assignee:
Board of Trustees of Michigan State University - East Lansing MI
International Classification:
H04L 12/56
US Classification:
370392, 370389, 706 12, 726 11, 726 13, 726 14
Abstract:
A method is provided for constructing a packet classifier for a computer network system. The method includes: receiving a set of rules for packet classification, where a rule sets forth values for fields in a data packet and a decision for data packets having matching field values; representing the set of rules as a directed graph; partitioning the graph into at least two partitions; generating at least one lookup table for each partition of the graph; and instantiating the lookup tables from one partition on a first content-addressable memory and the lookup tables from the other partition on a second content-addressable memory device.

Systematic Approach Towards Minimizing Packet Classifiers

View page
US Patent:
2010011, May 13, 2010
Filed:
Oct 14, 2009
Appl. No.:
12/578824
Inventors:
Xiang-Yang Alexander Liu - Okemos MI,
Chad R. Meiners - East Lansing MI,
Eric Torng - East Lansing MI,
Assignee:
Board of Trustees of Michigan State University - East Lansing MI
International Classification:
H04L 12/56
US Classification:
370389
Abstract:
A method is provided for constructing a packet classifier for a computer network system. The method includes: representing a set of rules for packet classification as a directed graph; formulating a plurality of minimization problems from the directed graph, where subgraphs extending from non-terminal nodes in the directed graph represent a minimization problem (i.e., a one-dimensional packet classifier); solving the plurality of minimization problems; combining solutions for the plurality of minimization problems to yield a reduced set of rules which form a reduced packet classifier; and instantiating the reduced packet classifier in a content-addressable memory device.

Regular Expression Matching Using Tcams For Network Intrusion Detection

US Patent:
2012007, Mar 22, 2012
Filed:
Jul 15, 2011
Appl. No.:
13/183964
Inventors:
Xiang-Yang A. Liu - Okemos MI,
Chad R. Meiners - Westford MA,
Eric Torng - East Lansing MI,
Assignee:
BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY - East Lansing MI
International Classification:
G06F 15/18
US Classification:
706 12
Abstract:
A method is provided for implementing regular expression matching using ternary content-addressable memory devices. The method includes: receiving a set of regular expressions (REs) that specify data elements to be extracted from data packets; constructing a deterministic finite automaton (DFA) from the set of regular expressions; building a state transition table for each node of the deterministic finite automaton; combining the state transition tables into a single lookup table; and instantiating the lookup table in a ternary content-addressable memory device. Additional techniques are provided to reduce the TCAM space and improve RE matching speed.
