  • Patent number: 10122624
    Abstract: One embodiment provides a system that facilitates efficient management of a forwarding information base (FIB). During operation, the system receives, by an intermediate node, a first interest which includes a name and a condition for removing a first entry from a FIB, wherein a name is a hierarchically structured variable length identifier that includes contiguous name components ordered from a most general level to a most specific level. In response to obtaining the first entry from the FIB based on the name for the first interest, the system adds to the first entry the condition included in the first interest as a lifetime value for the first entry. In response to determining that the lifetime value is satisfied, the system removes the first entry from the FIB, thereby facilitating the intermediate node to efficiently manage the FIB based on information provided by a content producing device.

  • Patent number: 10104006
    Abstract: In the bus system, bus interface apparatuses and routers are connected together through packet exchange buses which have been established on the integrated circuit. The bus interface apparatuses are respectively connected to transmission nodes which transmit data of mutually different numbers of bits in one cycle of operation of the bus system. Each of the bus interface apparatuses generates and transmits a packet based on data received from the transmission node connected and header information including size information indicating the number of bits with respect to the transmission node connected. The router analyzes the packet, gets the size information from the header information, determines how to allocate a space in the buffer for storage by reference to the size information gotten, and stores the received packet in the buffer.

  • Patent number: 10091792
    Abstract: The present application relates to an advanced receiver capable of subtracting co-channel interference. A significant problem of interference cancellation with this advanced receiver, which is capable to cancel other cell interference, is how to obtain information about the scheduled users, i.e. the interferers in neighboring cell. This knowledge is needed in order to be able to receive the signal from the neighboring cell for further use in the cancellation process. The interference cancellation can by simplified if e.g. the Radio Network Temporary Identifier RNTI and the Physical Cell Identity PCI would be known because the RNTI informs about the scrambling code to use for decoding the control channel, e.g. PDCCH. Thereby, it can be determined whether the data blocks transmitted to the radio devices in the neighboring cells collide with the data blocks transmitted to the advanced receiver.

  • Patent number: 10080185
    Abstract: A method, an apparatus, and a computer program product for wireless communication are provided. The apparatus may be a UE. The UE receives a discovery code and key information associated with the discovery code. A discovery message may be generated based on the discovery code. The UE transforms the discovery message using the key information. The UE then broadcasts the transformed discovery message. In a second configuration, the UE receives a first discovery code, key information associated with the first discovery code, and a discovery message containing a second discovery code. The UE unscrambles the discovery message using the key information to obtain the second discovery code. The first discovery code and the second discovery code are compared. If the first and second discovery codes match, the UE may check the integrity of the discovery message and/or remove confidentiality of the discovery message using the key information.

  • Patent number: 10075994
    Abstract: A radio terminal (3) has a function of establishing a second radio connection on a second cell (20) operated by a second radio station (2) while a first radio connection on a first cell (10) operated by a first radio station (1) is established. The first radio station (1) sets up a control bearer for transferring at least a control signal regarding the radio terminal (3) between an upper network (4) and the first radio station (1). Further, the first radio station (1) is configured to trigger setup of a second bearer for transferring user data of the radio terminal (3) between the upper network (4) and the second radio station (2). It is thus for example possible to enable a single radio terminal to simultaneously set up bearers on cells of a plurality of radio stations, in order to achieve carrier aggregation of cells operated by different radio stations.
