Abstract

This disclosure discusses the software apparatus used to optimize the transfer of a packet of 2048 bytes. This is done through the upper protocols writing directly to the buffered memory associated with the internet protocol interface layer, the use of descriptors which have extra fields for preloaded descriptor data, and the use of special dedicated channels for this traffic.
