  • Patent number: 11431725
    Abstract: A system and method for configuring network pairings enabling end-to-end communications between electronic devices is disclosed. The system receives a network pairing request from a requesting device to communicate with a target device. The system identifies historic data associated with the communication object and determines whether an affinity group associated with the requesting device is found. Further, the system determines whether the communication object has a valid permission token associated therewith. If a valid permission token is unavailable, the system checks whether a subscriber filter criteria is met by the requesting device. If the filter criteria is met, system calculates a subscriber access score (SAS) for the requesting device and compares the score to a threshold. When the SAS is greater than the predetermined threshold value, system creates a dynamic network pairing between the requesting device and the target device.

  • Patent number: 11431726
    Abstract: Systems and methods for creating a network communication pathway between devices based on type of communication request are disclosed. The system obtains a communication object from a first device to enable communication with a second device. The first device may be a device within an affinity group of the second device, such that the system identifies historic data relating to the affinity group and/or relating to communication attempts from non-subscriber devices found in one or more affinity groups stored within the system. Based on the communication object type, the system identifies whether communication object relates to a question object previously received from the second device and calculates an Expert Attribute Score (EAS) for the first device. The system may evaluate the EAS against a predetermined threshold and transmit the communication object to the second device, if the EAS is greater than or equal to the predetermined threshold.

  • Patent number: 11424969
    Abstract: Examples described herein include systems and methods which include wireless devices and systems with examples of full duplex compensation with a self-interference noise calculator.

  • Patent number: 11418155
    Abstract: A RF-digital hybrid mode power amplifier system for achieving high efficiency and high linearity in wideband communication systems is disclosed. The present invention is based on the method of adaptive digital predistortion to linearize a power amplifier in the RF domain. The power amplifier characteristics such as variation of linearity and asymmetric distortion of the amplifier output signal are monitored by the narrowband feedback path and controlled by the adaptation algorithm in a digital module. Therefore, the present invention could compensate the nonlinearities as well as memory effects of the power amplifier systems and also improve performances, in terms of power added efficiency, adjacent channel leakage ratio and peak-to-average power ratio. The present disclosure enables a power amplifier system to be field reconfigurable and support multi-modulation schemes (modulation agnostic), multi-carriers and multi-channels.

  • Patent number: 11381326
    Abstract: Systems and methods for dynamic maximum transmission unit determination are disclosed. For example, one or more triggering events may be detected to initiate determining whether to adjust transmission unit sizing for data transmission between devices. Received signal strength indicator (RSSI) values may be exchanged between the devices and those RSSI values may be utilized to determine a strength of a communication signal between devices. When the RSSI values are low, the communication signal strength may be weak and the devices may adjust the transmission unit size to be larger. In other examples when the RSSI values are high, the communication signal strength may be strong and the devices may adjust the transmission unit size to be smaller.
