    Abstract: Various embodiments provide a method and apparatus providing signaling protocol overload control by enhancing hop-by-hop overload control using cooperation between an “upstream server” or Sending Entity (SE) and the server receiving the signaling request messages and replying with signaling reply messages for a session the “downstream server” or Receiving Entity (RE). In particular, an overload control mechanism for a signaling request transmitted between an SE and the RE allows the RE to receive from the SE a predicted load based on the original un-throttled signaling load information at the SE. The RE may then base decisions such as an overload trigger or a resource scaling decision based on the received un-throttled predicted load at the SE.

    Abstract: Apparatus for amplifying signal such as a burst mode signal in an optical network. A doped fiber, for example an erbium-doped fiber is placed in a preferably passive module along an optical data transmission path. A pump port is optically connected to at least one combiner such as a WDM (wavelength division multiplexor) that is placed along the optical transmission path to add in a pump wavelength in the vicinity of the doped fiber. The apparatus, which is preferably completely passive, may be advantageously placed in communication with a remote pump light source such as a pump laser resident on a management node of the network. A second pump port may be added, as well as one or more detector ports to facilitate operation of a remote control processor, which may also be resident in a management node such as an OLT (optical line terminal) in a PON (passive optical network).

  • Publication number: 20130044600
    Abstract: A method of determining a bias parameter for a heterogeneous network including a small cell, a macro cell, and one or more user equipment (UEs), the small cell being underlaid with respect to the macro cell, includes determining, at a base station of the small cell, a loading state of the macro cell; and setting, at the base station, the bias parameter based on the determined loading state. A method of determining a cell border window (CBW) for the small cell, the small cell being underlaid with respect to the macro cell, the small cell having a plurality of attached UEs which are divided into inner cell UEs and border cell UEs, includes determining, at the base station, a difference value based on utilization values of the inner cell UEs and the border cell UEs; and adjusting the CBW based on the difference value and a threshold value.
