  • Patent number: 9311198
    Abstract: In embodiments of the present disclosure systems and methods implementing active-hot standby redundancy in server architectures are described. In an active-hot standby redundancy architecture, two matching service instances are installed in a network on different host computers. A standby service instance may maintain state information for every session maintained at an active service instance that it is poised to replace using a publish-subscribe communications network. When a failure occurs in the active instance, the standby instance may promote itself to active, and assume all aspects of the service identity and role of the Active instance it is replacing. Service to user entities continues without interruption, although transactions that are ongoing just as the failure occurs may be lost.

The cellular LTE base transceiver station is in RF TDD communication with the plurality of cellular mobile devices within a cell coverage area of the cellular LTE base transceiver station. Each RF beam covers a sub-area of the cell coverage area where the m times N RF beam patterns cover the area of the cell coverage area. The value of m is 1?m?3 and each one of the m sets of N RF beam patterns is generated in one or more of the non-S one-millisecond sub-frames of an LTE frame. The m sets of N RF beams are generated across any ten contiguous one-millisecond sub-frames.

  • Patent number: 9125064
    Abstract: In embodiments of the present disclosure improved capabilities are described for reducing inter-cell interference in a large area broadband LTE wireless network utilizing RF agile beam forming antennas, where the reduced inter-cell interference is realized by arranging the sets of rotating RF beams in each cell such that adjacent RF beam sub-areas in the same or in different cells are not illuminated at the same time. The reduction in inter-cell interference results in reduced interference noise for users located near the edges of cells, thereby allowing them to be assigned higher data rates. Also, the same set of sub-carriers can be assigned by adjacent cells to users located in the RF beam sub-areas at the cell boundaries, thereby allowing the complete set of LTE sub-carriers to be assigned to any user at any time, without requiring additional cell-to-cell communications.
