  • Publication number: 20190349275
    Abstract: An open-loop control assistance (“OLCA”) system can collect data, correlate and aggregate the data, and perform multi-dimensional analytics on the correlated and aggregated data. The OLCA system can then determine plurality of viable options for a next action to be taken by an operator in an open-loop control process, and can determine a specific option as an optimal choice for the operator to select. The OLCA system can present the plurality of viable options and a rationale explaining why the operator should select the specific option. The OLCA system can capture action(s) taken by the operator, and if the action does not correspond to the recommended action, the OLCA system can capture a reason regarding why the optimal choice was not selected. The OLCA system can analyze results from the action(s). The OLCA system can then fine-tune the open-loop control process based upon the results and the cause(s) thereof.

  • Publication number: 20190349209
    Abstract: Techniques for allowing access based online charging in cases of multiple user agents (multi-UAs) scenarios where the instances are registered to different telephony application servers (TASs) are discussed herein. For example, a user device may support a native number and multiple virtual numbers linked via a user account. When servicing a call, the user device may determine a served number to service the call from. If the served number is not the native number but a virtual number, the native-line server may handle the call session, but the online charging session will be handled by the virtual-line server. The native-line server may use session initiation protocol (SIP) information to send updated information for charging parameters to the virtual-line server including network access transfer for accuracy in online charging logic.

  • Patent number: 10476635
    Abstract: The described technology is generally directed towards adaptive interleaving in network communications systems based on one or more conditions with respect to user equipment. When conditions such as the speed of the user equipment indicate that performance can be increased by interleaving the data traffic, data is transmitted to the user equipment using an adaptive interleaver in the coding chain of MIMO systems. The adaptive interleaver is not used when conditions indicate performance is unlikely to improve. Adaptive interleaving may be performed in the frequency domain, in the frequency and time domain, or the frequency time and space domain. Multiple interleavers with different interleaving patterns may be used in the frequency domain and in the frequency and time domain. Adaptive interleaving may be based on one or more various criteria corresponding to the condition data received from the user equipment.
