  • Patent number: 11503111
    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: 11488722
    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: 11457102
    Abstract: Fault-tolerant signaling in a Long Term Evolution (LTE) network architecture is disclosed. A method can comprise initiating a primary signaling path to a signaling server device; in response to the initiating, establishing an alternate signaling path to a web application server device, wherein a call session is established over the primary signaling path; monitoring the primary signaling path for a session failure; and in response to the session failure, switching the call session from using the primary signaling path to using the alternate signaling path.

  • Patent number: 11445422
    Abstract: In one example, a method includes monitoring conditions in a telecommunication service provider network, selecting a first path by which to connect a communication session between a first endpoint and a second endpoint, wherein the first path is a path through the network that is expected to satisfy a predefined level of performance for the communication session based on the conditions, connecting the first endpoint and the second endpoint via the first path, detecting a change in the conditions that results in the first path failing to satisfy the predefined level of performance, selecting a second path by which to connect the communication session, wherein the second path is a path through the network that is expected to satisfy the predefined level of performance for the communication session based on the conditions as changed, and initiating a handoff of the communication session from the first path to the second path.

  • Patent number: 11438059
    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.

  • Publication number: 20210272451
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies directed to an integrated telecommunications roadside unit for supporting vehicle-to-everything (“V2X”) communications are disclosed herein. Embodiments of an integrated telecommunications roadside unit can include a processor and a memory that store computer-executable instructions that configure a processor to perform operations. The operations can include intercepting a vehicle-to-vehicle communication that is provided from a first vehicle to a second vehicle. The vehicle-to-vehicle communication can be transmitted using a direct transmission mode. The operations can further include encapsulating the vehicle-to-vehicle communication in a user plane package. The operations can also include routing the user plane package to a destination network access node, where the destination network access node is outside of a direct communication range corresponding to the first vehicle and the second vehicle.

  • 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.
