  • Patent number: 10931727
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer readable media can be operable to facilitate the intercept and manipulation of content requested by a client device. The methods, systems, and apparatuses described herein enable the interception and redirection of packets based upon a set of rules. Intercepted packets may be redirected away from an origin server and may be forwarded to a splicing device. The splicing device may establish a session with a corresponding origin server, and retrieve content that is requested by the intercepted packet. In embodiments, the splicing device may identify alternate content that is associated with the intercepted packet and/or content that is further associated with a device or subscriber associated with the packet. One or more segments of the requested content, or the entirety of the requested content may be replaced with the alternate content, and the modified content may be output to the client device requesting the content.

  • Patent number: 10926489
    Abstract: A method for forming fiber-reinforced composite parts via compression molding, particularly useful for forming parts that include off-axis, out-of-plane, or small, intricate features. In accordance with the method, non-flowing continuous fiber bundles and flowing continuous fiber bundles are placed in a mold, wherein the flowing continuous fiber bundles are disposed proximal to a minor feature. The non-flowing bundle has a length about equal to the length of a major feature of the mold. The flowing bundle has a length that is somewhat longer than the length of the minor feature. Under heat and pressure, resin softens and fibers from the flowing continuous fiber bundles flow into the minor feature.

  • Patent number: 10924253
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method receives a downstream signal and an upstream signal in a same frequency band. The downstream signal and the upstream signal are separated into a first path and a second path. The downstream signal using the first path and the upstream signal using the second path are amplified in an analog domain. The method isolates the downstream signal and the upstream signal from one another and sends the downstream signal downstream to a subscriber device and sends the upstream signal towards a full duplex node.

  • Publication number: 20210045128
    Abstract: An electronic device that determines one or more antenna patterns is described. During operation, this electronic device may reserve N time slots in a communication channel. Then, the electronic device may provide predefined frames in the N time slots that are intended for the second electronic device, where each time slot is associated with a different antenna pattern of an antenna. For example, the predefined frames may include null data packets (NDPs), and the time slot may have an extremum value of a performance metric, such as a signal-to-noise ratio. Moreover, the electronic device may receive feedback associated with the second electronic device, where the feedback includes information specifying at least a time slot in the N time slots. Next, the electronic device may select, based at least in part on the feedback, an antenna pattern associated with the time slot for use when communicating with the second electronic device.

  • Publication number: 20210037284
    Abstract: Exemplary embodiments are directed to methods and systems for annotating generating training data for video quality impairment detection. A video stream recorder extracts one or more image frames from a reference video stream as it is played. A video image labeler embeds a unique label into each of the one or more extracted image frames. The video stream recorder records the one or more labeled image frames as a labeled video stream. The video stream player then plays the labeled video stream through an impaired communication channel to generate a degraded video stream. A video image comparator compares one or more corresponding frames of the labeled video stream and the degraded video stream to generate one or more difference frames. An impaired image recorder annotates at least one of the one or more difference frames according to a corrupted region of the at least one difference frame.

  • Publication number: 20210036786
    Abstract: Circuits and systems may be operable to provide improved wireless networking performance in the presence of a high speed wired interface. Filter circuits may be applied to wired interface leads to suppress frequency content that may interfere with wireless home networking. High speed digital wired interface systems on a chip may similarly be altered to suppress interfering frequency content before it leaves the chip. Systems with reduced radiated energy from wired interface circuits in frequencies of interest to wireless networking have improved wireless range and throughput characteristics.

  • Patent number: 10911838
    Abstract: The disclosed examples encompass a media sending device, a media receiving device or a method of sending and reproducing media. For example, a media sending device may store media content and a meta-data file which includes media customization information to facilitate reproduction of the media content and an identifier that identifies a type of the information in the meta-data file. The media sending device then transmits an indication to the receiving device indicating that reproduction of the media content would be facilitated by use of the information in the meta-data file. The media sending device then transfers the media content and the meta-data file to the receiving device, in response to receiving a request for the media content from the receiving device. Then, the media receiving device reproduces the media content based at least in part on information extracted from the meta-data file, in a manner indicated by the identifier.

  • Patent number: 10897709
    Abstract: A method of granting access to a wireless network is provided allowing approval by a trusted authenticator. The method includes receiving a request to join a wireless network at a gateway from a client device, determining with the gateway whether the client device is within a predefined trusted zone, sending a notification of a potential new connection with the client device from the gateway to the trusted authenticator. The trusted authenticator then provides a response regarding the potential new connection, wherein the gateway denies network access to the client device when the gateway determines that the client device is outside the trusted zone or when the response from the trusted authenticator rejects the potential new connection, and wherein the gateway grants network access to the client device when the gateway determines that the client device is inside the trusted zone and when the response from the trusted authenticator approves the potential new connection.

  • Publication number: 20210014483
    Abstract: A method of decoding JVET video, comprising receiving a bitstream indicating how a coding tree unit was partitioned into coding units according to a partitioning structure that allows nodes to be split according to a partitioning technique. An intra direction mode for a coding unit may be selected, as well as one or more of the plurality of reference lines to generate at least one predictor for the intra direction mode. A predictor may be generated from reference samples within each selected reference line by combining predicted pixel values based on a projected position on a main reference line in combination with predicted pixel values based on a projected position on a side reference line. The predicted pixel values are weighted according to a weight parameter, wherein the weight parameter is determined based on a shift conversion factor.
