  • Patent number: 11936658
    Abstract: A system includes a plurality of shared network resources and a central server connected by a network. The central server receives from a first user a request for accessing a network resource. The central server identifies a plurality of user groups the first user is part of and determines a number of other users from the identified user groups who have the closest association with the first user. For each closely associated user of the first user, the central server simulates access to the requested network resource by the respective user based on a user group that provides to the other user access to the network resource. Based on results of the simulating, the central server determines a user group that provides a closest network path to the network resource and generates a recommendation to add the first user to the determined user group.

  • Patent number: 11909646
    Abstract: A congested network link is identified. Applications that are contributing to the congestion are also identified. The contribution of each of the identified applications to the congestion is then determined in order to determine whether the application's usage of the network should be throttled. A control signal is generated in order to indicate to the application that it is to perform an application-specific throttling operation to reduce the network bandwidth consumed by the application. If the application-specific throttling does not sufficiently reduce network congestion, a more aggressive throttling operation is performed.

  • Patent number: 11838176
    Abstract: Some embodiments of the invention provide a method for providing automated admission control services for a RAN system. The method receives a trigger alert that includes an application identifier for an application, a dRIC identifier associated with a dRIC to which the application is to be deployed, and a set of configurations for the application that are in a first format. The method converts the set of configurations from the first format to a second format and sends the set configurations in the second format to an FCAPS management pod deployed to the dRIC. Upon receiving positive acknowledgment indicating successful implementation of the set of configurations from the FCAPS management pod, the method updates a configuration table stored in a database of the RAN with a set of admissions control information for the application. The method sends a notification to an API server for the RAN indicating the set of configurations have been successfully implemented for the application.
