A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11929913B2) discloses a method and apparatus for creating data transmission entries. The method involves creating a table with priority information, receiving packets from a destination node, determining if the packet is for a supported service, and creating priority entries accordingly. The apparatus includes a processor and memory storing instructions for creating a table, receiving packets, and determining priority entries based on the destination address. The apparatus further includes features for handling Packet Too Big (PTB) packets and Neighbor Discovery (ND) packets, creating entries based on address pairs, and managing blank entries in the table.

Additionally, the patent describes operations for creating entries associated with PTB packets and ND packets, managing blank entries in the table, determining target entries with the shortest aging time, and distributing entries in different areas of the table based on the destination address. The priority of entries is based on whether the packet is for a supported service, with the first priority being higher than the second priority. The apparatus aims to efficiently manage data transmission entries, prioritize packets based on supported services, and optimize the use of table space for effective data transmission.
