  • Patent number: 11354136
    Abstract: Methods, devices, and systems allow for bootstrapping of a machine-to-machine device. In an embodiment, a bootstrap erase architecture allows the machine-to-machine server to manage bootstrap erase policies, detect access network specific events, initiate a bootstrap erase based on these policies and events, and allow for machine-to-machine server handover. In another embodiment, a device or gateway service capability layer may request its network service capability layer fetch data that the device or gateway, previously stored on a different network service capability layer. In another embodiment, when bootstrap erase is performed because the network service capability layer can no longer provide service to the device or gateway, the network service capability layer may recommend other NSCLs to the device or gateway. In another embodiment, a bootstrap erase procedure may be modified so that temporary identifiers may be assigned for a next bootstrapping event.

  • Patent number: 11347559
    Abstract: A cost estimator system receives a plan, a configuration or proposed changes for a cloud-based infrastructure, and which include data representing one or more computing resources needed for a cloud-based application. A new configuration is generated for the cloud-based infrastructure incorporating the plan, configuration or proposed changes. A price resolver resolves a price of the resources that are part of the new configuration, and requests, from one or more cloud providers associated with the new configuration, price data for the resolved resources. The cost estimator system then generates, based on the price data received by the price resolver, a cost estimate for the new configuration of the cloud-based infrastructure.
