  • Patent number: 10687181
    Abstract: An electronic apparatus includes a communication unit that performs wireless communication which uses an internal access point, a processing unit, and a display unit. In a state where the number of terminal apparatuses that establish a wireless connection to the internal access point reaches an upper limit value, in a case where a wireless connection request is received from a terminal apparatus that does not establish a wireless connection, the processing unit rejects the wireless connection request and performs processing that displays an alert in a first display mode on the display unit. Moreover, in a case where, until a given period of time has elapsed after the alert was kept non-displayed, the wireless connection request is again received from the terminal apparatus, the processing unit performs processing that sets a mode for displaying the alert to be a second display mode.

  • Patent number: 10674493
    Abstract: Provided are a communication device and an SRS transmission method capable of reducing the possibility of a difference in recognition between the presence or absence of an SRS transmission between a base station and a terminal or of an SRS resource so as to prevent degradation of system throughput. At a terminal (200), a reception processing unit (203) detects control information indicating whether or not to request transmission of a sounding reference signal (SRS), whereupon a transmission signal forming unit (207) transmits an A-SRS by way of control by a transmission control unit (206) on the basis of control information. The transmission control unit (206) determines whether or not to execute SRS transmission on the basis of an “SRS Transmission Execution Rule” and the reception status of trigger information.

  • Patent number: 10666563
    Abstract: A network includes a plurality of endpoint routers and intermediate routers. When a new data stream is detected at any endpoint router, the first packet is sent to a virtual routing server with knowledge of the entire network topology. Based on the topology, current usage, and historical usage, the virtual routing server determined a path for the data stream and begins to update the routing tables of the intermediate routers to reflect the determined path. Until the update is complete, all packets in the data stream are routed first to the virtual routing server and then to their destination. Once the update is complete, packets in the data stream are routed directly along the determined path.

  • Patent number: 10666550
    Abstract: A method for determining a termination point of at least one tunnel or segment in a packet switching network. The network includes a set of routers and links between them, the routers and links forming a previous network topology, a transit router receiving packets intended for an output router, an event modifying the previous topology into a subsequent network topology, and a backup path between the transit router and the output router being calculated for the subsequent topology. The method includes calculating, prior to the event, for each router, an initial tree based on the previous topology, which has as a root the router and has as branches paths of minimum cost between the root and the other routers. A termination point of a tunnel or segment is obtained to prevent packets transiting between the start router and the output router from entering into a micro-loop caused by the event.

  • Patent number: 10667306
    Abstract: In an example, a method of updating Basic Service Set ID (BSSID) is provided. According to the method, a wireless bridge device determines whether a Service Set Identifier (SSID) carried in a received access packet transmitted by a first wireless access point is matched with a target SSID locally saved in the wireless bridge device. The wireless bridge device continues determining whether a BSSID carried in the access packet is identical to a locally saved target BSSID if the decision result is yes. Otherwise, the wireless bridge device determines whether the access packet carries configuration information of a second wireless access point currently associated with the wireless bridge device, and the wireless bridge device saves the BSSID carried in the access packet as the target BSSID if the access packet carries the configuration information.

  • Patent number: 10667244
    Abstract: When a base station is capable of using multiple different types of waveforms for a downlink communication to a UE, the UE may waste processing resources attempting to receive and/or process the downlink communication. For example, the UE may cycle through various possible types of waveforms in an attempt to process the downlink communication. Techniques described herein use waveform signaling for downlink communications to notify the UE of a type of waveform being used for a downlink communication, thereby conserving UE resources (e.g., processing resources, memory resources, RF resources, and/or the like) that would otherwise be wasted attempting to process the downlink communication using multiple types of waveforms.

  • Patent number: 10660130
    Abstract: This disclosure provides systems, methods and apparatuses for coordinating access to a shared wireless medium among multiple master devices operating on the same frequency band. In some implementations, master devices may contend for access to the shared medium during a medium reservation window (MRW). During the MRW, master devices may advertise their intent to reserve at least a portion of the shared medium for one or more timeslots within a subsequent medium utilization period. The reservation messages may be broadcast to other master devices in the vicinity to prevent other master devices from accessing the wireless medium during a reserved timeslot. In some implementations, the owner of a timeslot may share at least a portion of its timeslot with other master devices. For example, the timeslot owner may enable other master devices to utilize an unused portion of the wireless medium, such as unused channels, spatial streams, or time.
