  • Patent number: 11005973
    Abstract: A device can receive, from a node of a set of nodes, a dynamic host configuration protocol (DHCP) discovery request. The device can determine a DHCP offer based on metadata associated with the node. The device can transmit, to the node, pre-boot execution environment (PXE) instructions, which can cause the node to load a minimal operating system image and execute a node installation service. The device can receive, from the node installation service, a request for information associated with a node type. The device can provide the information associated with the node type to the node, causing the node to generate configuration data relating to the node type. The device can receive, from the node, a request for a full operating system image, which can be provided to the node and can support one or more capabilities included in the configuration data.

  • Patent number: 11005551
    Abstract: A system described herein may determine transformations, differences, variations, etc. in radio frequency (“RF”) waveforms sent by a device in order to detect motion-based events. Models associated with the differences in such RF waveforms may be used to identify particular types of events, such as the presence of an individual in a room or other area, a type of motion, or other types of events. An interval or rate at which the device outputs RF waveforms may be modified, in order to increase the resolution of the determination of differences between the RF waveforms as sent and the RF waveforms as received, and/or to conserve power.

  • Publication number: 20210136752
    Abstract: A user device parses system information block data, received from a first cell, to identify an upper layer indicator element, and determines, based on the upper layer indicator element, that the user device is in an EN-DC area. The user device causes, based on determining that the user device is in the EN-DC area, first display of a first indicator on a display of the user device, and sends a request to the first cell for a data connection. The user device receives, from the first cell, a message that indicates a second cell will initiate the data connection via a 5G NR millimeter wave connection. The user device causes, based on the message, display of a second indicator on the display of the user device for a threshold amount of time, and then causes second display of the first indicator on the display of the user device.

  • Patent number: 10999790
    Abstract: A system described herein may provide for the selection of a cell of a wireless telecommunications network to which a User Equipment (“UE”) should connect. The UE may receive radio frequency (“RF”) signals from a group of cells (e.g., implemented by Radio Units (“RUs”)) of a radio access network (“RAN”), and may determine signal strengths or measures of channel quality associated with the RF signals. For example, the UE may determine a rate of change of signal strengths over time associated with each cell, a differential rate of change, or some other value, and may select the cell based on the respective rates of change. For example, the UE may select a particular cell which exhibits the lowest differential rate of change of signal strengths over time. A particular cell may be implemented, for example, by a mobile RU mounted on a vehicle that maintains relatively close proximity to UE.

  • Patent number: 10993096
    Abstract: A service provider may receive a user device that includes an embedded subscriber identity module (eSIM) associated with an equipment identifier (eID) with a previously provisioned service. The previously provisioned service may be provided by an eSIM profile (identified by an Integrated Circuit Card Identifier or ICCID) and the eSIM may contain more than one ICCID. The service provider may re-provision one of the existing ICCIDs to provide service based on the eID and historical data. The device and the carrier provisioning system may determine whether one of the profiles (ICCIDs) installed in the eSIM matches an already known eSIM profile (ICCD) and re-provision the eSIM profile (ICCD) for new wireless service. The service provider may then activate the user device for communication via the new wireless service in response to re-provisioning of the applicable eSIM profile (ICCID).
