Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.
Concept search eliminates the need for complex Boolean syntax to inform retrieval. Our Semantic Gist engine uses advanced cognitive semantic analysis to extract the meaning of data. This reduces the chances of missing valuable information, that may result from traditional keyword searching.

Local Area Network Adapter Management Stack Structure
a method for managing Local Area Network (LAN)
adapters. The LAN Adapter Management
Stack provides management of a
wide variety of LAN Adapters across a diverse set of operating
information and event notifications are already
made available to the protocol stacks through existing low-level APIs
such as: NDIS2, NDIS3 and ODI. This information can be presented to
DMI and used by management applications.
The LAN Adapter Management
Stack would bridge the gap between the low-level API and DMI. The
diagram illustrates how the management function would resemble a
protocol stack, very similar to the commonly known protocol stacks.
Each of the
low-level APIs provide: product descriptions,
adapter addresses (UAA, LAA, Functional/Multicast), packet/byte
counters, driver information and assorted adapter attributes (e.g.,
IRQ level, IO/memory addresses/ranges).
The protocol stacks are also
aware of adapter and media events such as: adapter checks and
lobe-wire faults. This basic set of
information and event
notifications would be invaluable to a management application.
