  • Patent number: 11888695
    Abstract: A network device receives a first message indicating that the network device is to operate according to a new configuration for a period of time and that the network device is to operate according to a user specified configuration upon expiration of the period of time without confirmation of the new configuration. The network device thereby causes the network device to operate according to the new configuration for the period of time, and then determines whether the network device received, prior to expiration of the period of time, confirmation of the new configuration. The network device selectively: causes the network device to operate according to the user specified configuration after expiration of the period of time, based on determining that confirmation was not received; or causes the network device to operate according to the new configuration after expiration of the period of time, based on determining confirmation was received.

  • Patent number: 11870563
    Abstract: A semi-supervised machine learning model can provide for classifying an input data point as associated with a particular target location or a particular action. Each data point comprises one or more sensor values from one or more signals emitted by one or more signal sources located within a physical area. A tagged sample set and an untagged sample set are combined to train the machine learning model. Each tagged sample includes a respective data point and a label representing a respective location/action. Each untagged sample includes a data point but is unlabeled. Once trained, given a current data point, the machine learning model can classify the current data point as associated with a particular location/action, after which a target object (e.g., other device or application to be used) can be predicted.

  • Patent number: 11848865
    Abstract: Techniques for using global virtual network instance (VNI) labels in a multi-domain network to route network data with a multi-tenant network overlay are described herein. A routing device provisioned in a network domain of the multi-domain network may register with a service discovery system of the network domain for use of network configuration data to establish routes through the multi-domain network with network nodes. Each network domain of the multi-domain network may include an application programming interface (API) server for processing API requests to make changes to configurations of a network domain. A border gateway protocol (BGP) large community may be utilized to encode global VNI labels, network addresses, local next hop nodes, and/or additional network information and sent to routing devices provisioned in separate network domains. A service chain may be signaled by global VNI labels to route network traffic through various services prior to reaching a destination endpoint.
