  • Patent number: 11838332
    Abstract: A method, a communication device and a computer program product for selecting an active camera from a front facing camera and a rear facing camera for use during a video communication session. The method includes receiving, via a processor, first communication input associated with a non-video communication session. In response to detecting a switch from the non-video communication session to a video communication session, a first context is determined at the communication device based on the first communication input. The first context is associated with using an active camera selected at the communication device to capture and share video data with the second communication device. The selected active camera is one of the front facing camera and the rear facing camera. The method further includes selecting, as the active camera, one of the front facing camera or the rear facing camera that is associated with the first context.

  • Patent number: 11811596
    Abstract: Methods and systems for managing network provisioning for far edge devices are disclosed. New devices may be onboarded to a network at the far edge to provide computer-implemented services. Upon delivery to the far edge, the new devices may lack IP network configuration, which may be required to obtain provisioning data used to complete the onboarding process. That is, the new devices may be unable to access provisioning data until IP-based communications are established with a provisioning server. However, IP network configuration of the new devices may fail (e.g., when local DHCP servers fail to provide network configuration information), preventing initiation of the onboarding process. Thus, a remote service console may be implemented to automate network provisioning (e.g., when DHCP methods fail). The service console may be hosted by a service device and may provide the IP configuration information to new devices automatically, without user input and/or intervention.

  • Patent number: 11729084
    Abstract: Various embodiments of the present invention provide methods, apparatus, systems, computing devices, computing entities, and/or the like for enabling low-bottleneck system-wide monitoring of a multi-node blockchain network by using a service monitoring ledger to describe monitoring nodes associated with a primary monitored node and providing access request signatures for those system monitor ledgers that are associated with a particular monitoring node to the monitoring node computing entity for the particular monitoring node. In some embodiments, using the ledger-based signature reporting techniques described herein, when a particular monitoring node is associated with L of M primary monitored nodes, where L is less than or equal to M and is typically much less than M, a monitoring node computing entity for the particular monitoring node can perform effective system-wide monitoring using a set of operations that have a computational complexity of O(L).
