  • Patent number: 10896321
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to systems and methods for automating offender documentation with facial or other recognition technique. A method can include generating, by cameras situated about a correctional facility, pixel data including first pixels corresponding to a face of a first offender in the correctional facility and an environment around the first offender corresponding to a location within the field of view of the camera, and providing, to a server, the pixel data from the cameras through a network connection, and receiving, from the server, an alert that, based on facial recognition and location detection analysis performed on the pixel data by the server, indicates a monitoring rule associated with the first offender is violated, an offender identification associated with the first offender, a location of the first offender in the correctional facility, and an indication of the monitoring rule violated.

  • Patent number: 5406281
    Abstract: A method (100) and device (200) increase efficiency of a data compression encoder or decoder by testing whether an input string is a maximum length string upon successful match of the input string in a dictionary. Where the length of the input string is equal to a predetermined maximum string length, the string matching process is terminated without processing an additional input character that would cause an unsuccessful string match. The maximum length string test is accomplished by testing a string length counter for the value zero, where the string length counter is set to the maximum string length value when the input string is NULL or alternatively is set to the maximum string length minus one when the input string is a one character string, and the string length counter is decremented for each input character that extends the matched input string.

  • Patent number: 5402478
    Abstract: A fallback strategy for a system (700) and method (200) is provided for rerouting a call that fails to be established utilizing a first set of constraints in a communication network system. This strategy enables the communication network system to utilize a look-around-first type of preemption that avoids unnecessary preemption and provides alternate routing for a call according to predetermined constraints selected by a user.

  • Patent number: 5384780
    Abstract: The present invention provides a novel scheme for automatically increasing data throughput in a communication system by having data compression with delay minimization done within a modem. A high speed modem includes a logical link negotiation unit for probing and determining data compression parameters (DCPs) for a synchronous data compression link with a remote modem and for inserting the DCPs and codeword combinations into compressed data. The modem also includes a physical layer connection unit coupled to synchronous data terminal equipment to provide a delay minimizing scheme that adjustably accommodates data delivery delay to the receiving modem. A method and system incorporate the functions of the high speed modem.

  • Patent number: 5347539
    Abstract: A two wire modem selects a carrier frequency in a baud rate from a predetermined plurality of carrier frequencies and baud rates to communicate with another modem over a communication media in a full duplex mode based on signal and echo characteristics of the communication media estimated by the modem. In addition, the processes of estimating channel characteristics and estimating range are combined in a common start up procedure comprising a plurality of successive time segments for a call modem to communicate with an answer modem over a communication media. Still further, a method is provided for switching from a primary communication media connection to a secondary connection of a data communications network for communication by first and second modems coupled to the network. More specifically, when a failure is detected in the primary connection, the secondary connection is qualified before switching thereto.

  • Patent number: 5329405
    Abstract: A variable length string matcher finds the longest string in a stored sequence of data elements (e.g., in a history buffer) that matches a string in a given sequence of data elements. The matcher includes circuitry that operates iteratively to compare data elements of the strings and determine the longest matching string based on when an iteration does not result in issuance of a match signal. In another aspect, the history buffer is an associative content addressable memory (CAM), and the string matcher uses absolute addressing of the CAM to determine the longest matching string.

  • Patent number: 5319636
    Abstract: A device and method utilize a linear feedback/feedforward configuration to estimate and cancel a listener echo wherein equalizer (202) and listener echo cancellation (204 and 208) units are jointly updated, allowing determination of an error signal once (204 and 208), in place of the former method of separate error signal determination for each of an equalizer and a listener echo canceller. An improved phase-correction scheme is utilized to compensate the frequency offset in the listener echo. The relationship between the listener echo and talker far echo is utilized to facilitate the listener echo cancellation.

  • Patent number: 5297186
    Abstract: Optimal baud rate and carrier frequency for data transmission using a modem on a communication channel (100) are determined by utilizing an on-line line probing technique. The technique utilizing the information from a decoder noise power spectrum estimated from the equalized received modulated signals and decoder output symbols to determine the decoder signal-to-noise ratios (SNRs) and supported bit rates for the available baud rates and carrier frequencies. These SNRs and bit rates together with a band edge SNR difference at each frequency band are utilized to select (110) the optimal baud rate and carrier frequency.
