  • Patent number: 11375382
    Abstract: Network planning based on collected crowd-sourced access point quality and selection data can optimize access point frequency and/or bandwidth selection. A cloud-based application can be utilized in conjunction with a mobile device to build a database of access point quality and thresholds suitable for real-time and other jitter-sensitive services. The mobile device jitter measurements and selection thresholds can be collected at a cloud platform, which creates an access point performance and selection threshold profile from which the network can facilitate access point frequency and/or bandwidth selections.

  • Patent number: 11374746
    Abstract: The concepts and technologies disclosed herein are directed to time-aware blockchain staged regulatory control of Internet of Things (“IoT”) data. A federation platform can receive a registration request from an enterprise edge platform to register a blockchain identifier for publication of public data on a public blockchain. The federation platform can determine if the registration request contains any restricted data parameters. In response to determining that the registration request does not contain any restricted data parameters, the federation platform can query a security module to obtain an encryption key. The federation platform can receive the encryption key from the security module. The federation platform can store the encryption key in association with the blockchain identifier and an enterprise edge platform ID that uniquely identifies the enterprise edge platform.

  • Patent number: 11371855
    Abstract: Dynamic customization of an autonomous vehicle experience is presented herein. A dynamic recommendation engine can comprise a subscriber interface component, a data component, and a configuration component. The subscriber interface component can receive, from a subscriber of an autonomous vehicle service, a request specifying a route of transport by an autonomous vehicle; and based on the request, the data component can obtain, via a network slice comprising a virtual network function of the autonomous vehicle service, profile information for the subscriber and route information for the route. Further, the configuration component can determine, via the network slice based on the profile information and the route information, configuration data for the autonomous vehicle, and send, via the network slice, the configuration data directed to the autonomous vehicle to facilitate the transport by the autonomous vehicle.

  • Patent number: 11375038
    Abstract: A method includes sending, from a portable computing device to a media device, first data indicating media content provided to a display device when a particular local area network was not accessible to the portable computing device. The media device generates or updates a user profile based on the first data and causes a first media content item to be recorded based on the user profile. The method includes receiving, from the media device via the particular local area network, a notification identifying the first media content item and a storage size associated with the first media content item. The method also includes, in response to determining that a pre-cache memory does not have available capacity to store the first media content item based on the storage size, deleting a second media content item from the pre-cache memory and storing the first media content item at the pre-cache memory.

  • Patent number: 11363406
    Abstract: A radio access network system is described that determines a signal metric associated with a user equipment or device. The user equipment device can implement an altered transmission policy. The altered transmission policy can alter a strength of transmissions by increasing power consumption per transmission, increasing a length of timer per transmission, and altering other parameters of transmissions. The altered transmission policy can also alter an error correction policy. The error correction policy can indicate that error correction transmissions are to be decreased. The altered transmission policy can be implemented until the signal metric changes to a more desirable level.

  • Patent number: 11356349
    Abstract: Communications services are provided to a device. For instance, where a communications resource is being used by a device via a first communications service provider (CSP) component associated with a first CSP, based on a probabilistic analysis of loading parameters received from a device at the first CSP component. A likelihood that the device will move can be predicted, comprising determining the likelihood is not less than a threshold likelihood. If likely to move, and based on the loading parameters, a loading profile associated with a user of the device is updated resulting in updated likelihoods of usages of the communication resource by the device via respective other CSP components other than the first CSP component. Further, based on the updated likelihoods of usages of the communication resource, at least part of the communications resource can be allocated to the respective other CSP components to facilitate communications with the device.

  • Patent number: 11356537
    Abstract: A connected-device network can continually learn from abstract sensory data (e.g., speech processing, cognitive inference, and/or computer vision image segmentation) and can generate never-seen-before data in real time. In one aspect, the network devices extract important correlations in the sensor data based on network data collected at different time slice and/or locations. Further, underlying relationships in a set of data can be detected as the sensor data transverses through different layers of the network. Moreover, the network devices can provide logic in different layers to help classify the sensor data early in the detection process (e.g., instead of waiting for it to reach its final destination).

  • Patent number: 11344800
    Abstract: Virtualized gaming as a network service is provided where instead of using a cloud based virtualized gaming console, a virtual machine can be instantiated at an edge network device in a radio access network to decrease the latency of communications between the user equipment device and the virtualized gaming console. Another virtue of placing the gaming console in the network is that the processing, memory storage and other hardware requirements can be offloaded to the network, allowing the user equipment device to be able to handle a broad range of games, without being limited by processing power and battery usage. The user equipment device can be treated as a thin-client device, receiving control data, video data, and audio data that can be played back at the user equipment device.

  • Patent number: 11349552
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies disclosed herein are directed to millimeter wave (“mmWave”) idle channel optimization. According to one aspect disclosed herein, an antenna system can include an antenna array that is configured in a first antenna configuration. The antenna system can generate and send downlink beams directed towards a network edge. A beam index scanner operating at the network edge can scan the downlink beams to determine beam index scanner data for the first antenna configuration. The beam index scanner can send the bream index scanner data to an antenna technician device. The beam index scanner data can indicate that a downlink channel provided by the downlink beams is not optimized. The antenna system can configure the antenna array in a new antenna configuration in an attempt to optimize the downlink channel provided by the downlink beams.
