  • Patent number: 11489749
    Abstract: A method includes receiving a representation of a predefined planned event that includes the use of a first set of cellular data service infrastructure elements. A performance of the first set of cellular data service infrastructure elements is simulated, and a predicted failure of at least one cellular data service infrastructure element from the first set of cellular data service infrastructure elements is identified based on the simulation. In response to identifying the predicted failure, a modification to the at least one cellular data service infrastructure element or an additional cellular data service infrastructure element is determined and included in a second set of cellular data service infrastructure elements whose performance is subsequently simulated. The simulated performance of the first set of cellular data service infrastructure elements is compared with the simulated performance of the second set of cellular data service infrastructure elements to determine a performance improvement.

  • Patent number: 11489797
    Abstract: In a method for distributed upload of documents an upload email address is assigned to a user and associated with a searchable document database accessible by the user via a user device and a network. Sender acceptance criteria are established for the upload email address. An email addressed to the upload email address and having a sender email address is received from an email sender via the network. A determination is made as to whether the received email meets sender acceptance criteria. Responsive to a determination that the email meets sender acceptance criteria, documents attached to the email are identified. Each identified document is associated with a document record comprising a document identifier and a sender identifier associated with the email sender and is stored in the searchable document database with the document record.

  • Patent number: 11483377
    Abstract: Time-based media is distributed and promoted in a social networking environment. Accounts of a social networking system author social media content items (SMCIs) from which a social networking system infers relevance of content to users of those accounts. Content distributors submit time-based media content to the social networking system, which creates distributor SMCIs containing the time-based media content. Accounts are identified to receive distributor SMCIs based on SMCIs previously authored by those accounts as well as identifying information and the subject of the SMCI. Content promoters may add promotional material to distributor SMCIs, which the social networking service sends to additional accounts.

  • Patent number: 11463396
    Abstract: A method of postponing an electronic message is performed at a computing device having one or more processors and memory. The memory stores one or more programs configured for execution by the one or more processors. The device displays a first electronic message for a user of the computing device and receives user input to postpone the first electronic message. In response to the user input, the device displays a plurality of postponement locations in a user interface window and receives user selection of a postponement location from the displayed plurality of postponement locations. The device then inhibits display of the first electronic message at the computing device. When it is subsequently determined that the computing device is at the first postponement location, the device redisplays the first electronic message.

  • Patent number: 11457088
    Abstract: An edge system receives requests from user devices to retrieves files from an origin server. Instead of retrieving the files as fast as possible, the edge system throttles the retrieval of files to a rate that just exceeds the speed at which the file is played by a browser or media player. The edge system determines an appropriate retrieval rate based on the contents of the file itself. For example, a manifest file associated with the file can indicate a time it takes to play back content and a bitrate of the content. Thus, the edge server can use this information to retrieve a file from an origin server at a rate that is just fast enough to minimize playback interruption. The retrieval rate determined by the edge server therefore does not rely on how fast or slow the user device retrieves the file from the edge server.

  • Patent number: 11422839
    Abstract: The transmission of data on computer networks according to one or more policies is disclosed. A policy may specify, among other things, various parameters which are to be followed when transmitting initiating network traffic. Multiple network interfaces may be installed on a server to enable transmission of data from the single server according a number of discrete configuration settings implicated by the various policies. The multiple network interfaces may correspond to separate physical components, with each component configured independently to implement a feature of a policy. The multiple network interfaces may also correspond to a single physical component that exposes multiple network interfaces, both to the network and to the server on which it is installed.

  • Patent number: 11425053
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer-readable media for on-demand resource provisioning for service instances. An on-demand service broker provisions IaaS resources at service instance creating time. The service broker provides a catalog listing one or more service plans, each service plan corresponds to a set of available resources. A user device selects a respective service plan that matches specific needs of an application that consumes the resources. The service broker generates a deployment manifest based on the selected service plan. The service broker then submits the deployment manifest to a deployment system. The deployment system provisions the resources to the service instance according to the manifest generated by the service broker.

  • Patent number: 11416766
    Abstract: In an approach to detecting the transmission of messages, analyzing said messages, calculating a message risk score and transmitting a warning notification, one or more computer processors detect transmission of a message from a user to a selected recipient. The one or more computer processors extract message information from the detected message. The one or more computer processors retrieve one or more historical conversations between the user and the selected recipient of the detected message. The one or more computer processors determine a risk score corresponding to sending the detected message to the selected recipient based on applying the extracted message information and the retrieved historical conversations to a cognitive model.
