  • Patent number: 10136396
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, a system that obtains uplink parameters associated with different sectors of a wireless network where the uplink parameters are associated with uplink transmissions of a first end user device. The system can determine a differential path loss for the first end user device based on the uplink parameters where the differential path loss is between the different sectors of the wireless network. The system, responsive to a determination that the differential path loss does not satisfy a differential path loss threshold, can determine a restriction for utilization of a particular frequency and power level over a particular time period, where the determination that the differential path loss does not satisfy the differential path loss threshold can be performed without utilizing channel quality data from the first end user device. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10111084
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for discovering a home agent serving a mobile node upon the mobile node changing its mobility management scheme in a packet-switched network and the implementation of such method in a mobile node or home agent. In order to propose a home agent discover scheme that maintains session continuity in a seamless manner upon a mobile node changing its mobility management scheme, a mobile node comprises information on its location prior to changing the mobility management scheme to one of the first signaling messages transmitted upon changing the mobility management scheme (home agent discovery message). The receiving node uses this information to identify the home agent serving the mobile node or to provide a hint to the home agent where the mobile node is registered in a response message to the mobile node.

  • Patent number: 10110454
    Abstract: The invention provides a packet loss detection system that in near-real time detects packet loss and reports the identities of the lost packets. The identities of the lost packets are based on a set of packet-specific information that includes five-tuple flow information of the packet and other unique packet identifiers. A set of meters are placed at various vantage points in the network, each meter generates digests summarizing all the traffic passing through itself. The digests are exported to a collector/analyzer, which decodes the digests and performs an analysis to detect packet losses and to determine the lost packets' identities. The collector compares between the traffic digests generated by all the meters surrounding the segment. Mismatches among the digests indicate packet losses. The collector restores the identifiers of the lost packets by further decoding the mismatches between the digests.

  • Patent number: 10110467
    Abstract: A source network node performs routing path selection in a communications network by steps that include acquiring a dynamically changing metric value of at least one of a plurality of data routing paths extending from the source network node to a destination network node to which data is to be routed. A determination is made as to which of the data routing paths the data is to be routed on the basis of the acquired dynamically changing metric value of the at least one data routing path in order to satisfy at least one predetermined routing criterion. Routing of the data from the source network node to the destination node is then controlled to be performed over the determined data routing paths.

  • Patent number: 10104016
    Abstract: Provided are a device, a system, and a method in which redundancy is changed in accordance with a line state, and thus the optimal redundancy can be set while the current settings are compared to the previous settings. A communication device measures line quality information from a received packet, and generates a redundancy change instruction based on information regarding a line. In a case where the communication device acquires line quality information for the second and subsequent times, the communication device compares the previous redundancy change instruction and the previous line quality information, to the current line quality information, and sets redundancy. Thus, it is possible to suppress the occurrence of congestion and satisfy a target value of the line quality, and to search for a condition which causes the redundancy to be the minimum.
