  • Patent number: 10390331
    Abstract: System information can include a basic set of system information and additional system information. A UE can receive the basic set of system information and then later request or receive the additional system information. Messages can use tags which can be used to look up locally stored system information. If a tag does not correspond to any locally stored system information, the system information and an associated tag can then be requested. Messages can be indicative of a cluster identity associated with cells. When the UE goes into a new cell, the cluster identity can be checked to see if system information from a prior call can be reused.

  • Patent number: 10382926
    Abstract: A system is disclosed for the coordinated grouping of devices for receipt of network layer group based services. A service layer system such as an SCS generates a request to generate a group of devices to receive network layer services. The request is received at a network layer system such as, for example, an MTC-IWF. Network layer systems such as, for example, an HSS, identifies a manner of communicating the requested service to identified devices and communicates with the devices to provision the devices so as to be included in the requested group. The network layer systems communicate an identifier to the service layer system which the service layer may subsequently use to request execution of the service by the identified group of devices.

  • Patent number: 10374910
    Abstract: A system is disclosed for orchestrating services. Service orchestration profiles specify attributes defining desired services. The service orchestration profiles may be distributed amongst nodes and hierarchically related to each other. Service orchestration management functions process the information in the service orchestration profiles in order to determine the desired services and use the information to implement the desired services. The service orchestration management functions may be hierarchically related to each other.

  • Patent number: 10367620
    Abstract: Flexibly configured containers consisting of resources within time-frequency blocks may be used to support multiple numerologies in new radio architectures. Uplink control may be defined in resources within a container, or in dedicated resources, by various nodes. Sounding reference signal resources may be dynamically configured for each numerology. The sequence length may be adapted, as well as the time domain location of symbols. Time, frequency, and orthogonal resources may be allocated via a downlink control channel or a radio resource control. Sounding reference signals may be pre-coded, and pre-coding weights may be based on a codebook or non-codebook approaches, e.g., via a radio resource control or a downlink RRC or DL control channel. Pre-coded sounding reference signals may be adapted to user equipment antenna configuration. Further, NR-SRS may be used as UL demodulation RS (DM-RS).

  • Patent number: 10334406
    Abstract: A subscription analyzing and grouping mechanism can group similar subscription requests from different subscribers and generates an aggregated notification for them. The subscription analyzing and grouping mechanism reduces the number of subscription request messages and notification messages and in turn improves subscription efficiency and makes M2M/IoT service layer more efficient and scalable.

  • Patent number: 10313858
    Abstract: Methods are proposed to integrate MQTT Server functionality into the oneM2M CSE, as well as to interconnect such CSE-based MQTT Servers into a network organized around a topic structure based on resource address. Methods can dynamically allocate, assign and deliver an identifier that can be used as the AE-ID by the AE, CSE and MQTT Server. The MQTT Server can be internetworked into the M2M Service Layer such that an MQTT Server is available in every Service Layer node that hosts a CSE.

  • Patent number: 10306671
    Abstract: Current approaches to transmitting uplink data in a network often require resources to be granted. In an example, a node or apparatus may configure a plurality of devices to operate in a grant-less mode in accordance with a respective grant-less access allocation. Grant-less operations may be managed, for example, to meet the reliability and latency requirements and battery life requirements for different types of devices. For example, the state transition between grant-less and grant based may be managed.

  • Patent number: 10306591
    Abstract: When mobile terminated devices sleep, the devices might not be reachable when needed, for instance when the device is a recipient of data from a third party server. As described herein, a third party application server may inform the network that it has data to send to a particular UE or group of UEs. In an example, the mobile core network (MCN) may use information from the third party server to ensure that the UE is awake when it needs to be. For example, a given UE or group of UEs can be prevented from entering a sleep state before a data transfer is completed.

  • Patent number: 10298497
    Abstract: The present application is directed to a computer-implemented method of updating context information of content in a router. The method includes the step of receiving a pseudo-content publication (PCP) message from a server including updated content and a Bloom filter. The method also includes the step of determining whether the content on the router is a member of the bloom filter. The method also includes the step of revising the context information of the content on the router being a member of the bloom filter with context information of the updated content received in the PCP message. The application is also directed to a computer-implemented method forwarding a content request from a client to a server. Further the present application is directed to a context-aware router including a non-transitory memory and a processor operably configured to the memory configured to execute one or more of the above-mentioned methods.

  • Patent number: 10298714
    Abstract: A mapping service in the mobile core network located after a packet data network gateway examines content requests from user equipment across a first PDN connection to determine if content associated with the content request is cached at an edge server outside of the packet data network. If the content from the packet data network is cached at the edge server, the mapping service redirects the user equipment to request the content from the edge server across a second PDN connection. By using a mapping service located after the packet data network gateway, the content requests may have already passed restrictions such as parental controls.

  • Publication number: 20190132236
    Abstract: IoT twinning groups can be dynamically created. These twinning groups can be activated based on selected triggers. As part of twinning operation, service delivery can be re-directing away from the primary device to the IoT twinning group. Messages originating from members of the IoT twinning group can be processed and forwarded externally as if they came from the primary device. Further, the twinning service can be de-activated based on selected triggers.

  • Patent number: 10257678
    Abstract: Data discovery for sensor data in an M2M network uses probabilistic models, such as Gaussian Mixing Models (GMMs) to represent attributes of the sensor data. The parameters of the probabilistic models can be provided to a discovery server (DS) that respond to queries concerning the sensor data. Since the parameters are compressed compared to the attributes of the sensor data itself, this can simplify the distribution of discovery data. A hierarchical arrangement of discovery servers can also be used with multiple levels of discovery servers where higher level discovery servers using more generic probabilistic models.
