  • Patent number: 11108849
    Abstract: Global Internet of things (IoT) quality of service (QoS) is provided through self-forming, self-healing, and/or collaborative edge IoT gateways. Moreover, global IoT services are provided by logically extending cellular networks with roaming partners to backhaul, track, and/or manage the globally deployed edge IoT gateways. In one aspect, real-time QoS and/or monitoring capabilities for the global IoT services can be provided through a communication between the edge IoT gateways and an edge gateway controller deployed within a cloud. The edge IoT gateways form a structured mesh network to coordinate workload execution under control of the edge gateway controller, which can facilitate a highly efficient QoS and/or SLA management for mobile IoT sensors, to provide a secure monitoring and/or diagnostic capability for the global IoT services.

  • Patent number: 11087887
    Abstract: Systems and methods mediate anomaly notifications in health data to health alerts using data structures and logic to organize, contain, and dispose of identified health anomalies. Multiple detection algorithms, operating asynchronously and independently, run against one or more health data streams. Examples of data streams are electronic laboratory requisitions and results, OTC sales of medicines and medical supplies, emergency department visit data, and others. The outputs of anomaly detection generators—anomaly notifications (anomalies)—are processed by the invention. The case manager organizes anomaly notifications and supports collaborative decision making and disposition among expert users.

  • Patent number: 11025607
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies disclosed herein are directed to vehicle-to-everything (“V2X”) certificate management. According to one aspect of the concepts and technologies disclosed herein, a system can receive a CRL from a security credential management (“SCM”) system. The CRL can identify one or more certificates that have been determined to be invalid, such as when the certificate(s) has expired. The certificate(s) can be utilized by a vehicle for secure communications, including vehicle-to-vehicle (“V2V”) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (“V2I”) (collectively V2X). The system can format the CRL as a cell broadcast message. The system can then create a cell broadcast request directed to a cell broadcast center (“CBC”). The cell broadcast request can include the CRL formatted as the cell broadcast message. The system can send the cell broadcast request to the CBC to instruct the CBC to broadcast the CRL as the cell broadcast message.

  • Patent number: 10972180
    Abstract: An improved technique for acoustic sensing involves, in one embodiment, launching into a medium, a plurality of groups of pulse-modulated electromagnetic-waves. The frequency of electromagnetic waves in a pulse within a group differs from the frequency of the electromagnetic waves in another pulse within the group. The energy scattered by the medium is detected and, in one embodiment, the beat signal may be used to determine a characteristic of the environment of the medium. For example, if the medium is a buried optical fiber into which light pulses have been launched in accordance with the invention, the presence of acoustic waves within the region of the buried fiber can be detected.

  • Patent number: 10826818
    Abstract: Switches within a telecommunications network exchange so-called available bandwidth messages, each of which advertises how much bandwidth remains unassigned on a respective link. The network is of a type in which circuits are provisioned with various predefined numbers of time slots (equivalent to bandwidth). The sending of an available bandwidth message for a given link is triggered by a change in the number of time slots available on that link if that change results in a change in the number of circuit bandwidths that can be accommodated by that link for a newly provisioned circuit.

  • Patent number: 10779248
    Abstract: Incorporation of a mesh base station in a wireless network is presented herein. The mesh base station can utilize common wireless resource allocations as a corresponding wireless base station while transmitting to wireless subscriber stations during the same time period. The mesh base station obtains a data packet from the wireless base station over a backhaul link during a scheduled time period and transmits the data packet to the designated wireless subscriber station during another scheduled time period. The wireless base station and the mesh base station can also receive data packets from wireless subscriber stations during a same time period. A wireless network can be configured with two mesh base stations at an approximate boundary of two adjacent sector coverage areas, where a coverage area is supported by a wireless base station and each mesh base station supports wireless subscriber stations within a coverage radius.
