  • Patent number: 10977052
    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. A device or gateway service capability layer (182) requests its network service capability layer to fetch data that the device or gateway previously stored on a different network service capability layer (196, 197). In an 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: 10951741
    Abstract: A computer device and a method for reading or writing data by a computer device are provided. In the computer device, a central processing unit (CPU) is connected to a cloud controller using a double data rate (DDR) interface. Because the DDR interface has a high data transmission rate, interruption of CPU can be avoided. In addition, the CPU converts a read or write operation request into a control command and writes the control command into a transmission queue in the cloud controller. Because the cloud controller performs a read operation or a write operation on a network device according to operation information in the control command, after writing the control command into the transmission queue, the CPU does not need to wait for an operation performed by the cloud controller and can continue to perform other processes.

  • Patent number: 10917491
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to cognitive automation-based engine processing to propagate data across multiple systems via a private network to overcome technical system, resource consumption, and architecture limitations. Data to be propagated can be manually input or extracted from a digital file. The data can be parsed by analyzing for correct syntax, normalized into first through sixth normal forms, segmented into packets for efficient data transmission, validated to ensure that the data satisfies defined formats and input criteria, and distributed into a plurality of data stores coupled to the private network, thereby propagating data without repetitive manual entry. The data may also be enriched by, for example, correcting for any errors or linking with other potentially related data. Based on data enrichment, recommendations of additional target(s) for propagation of data can be identified. Reports may also be generated. The cognitive automation may be performed in real-time to expedite processing.

  • Patent number: 10891343
    Abstract: A method and system for recommending potential contacts to a target user is provided. A recommendation system identifies users who are related to the target user through no more than a maximum degree of separation. The recommendation system identifies the users by starting with the contacts of the target user and identifying users who are contacts of the target user's contacts, contacts of those contacts, and so on. The recommendation system then ranks the identified users, who are potential contacts for the target user, based on a likelihood that the target user will want to have a direct relationship with the identified users. The recommendation system then presents to the target user a ranking of the users who have not been filtered out.
