  • Patent number: 10050893
    Abstract: To transmit data packets over a shared data path, data packets of a first message and a second message are received and stored, respectively, in first and second queues. First and second data packets are then extracted from, respectively, the first and second messages. First and second priority values are calculated, respectively, for the first and second data packets and are associated thereto. If the first priority value is determined to be lower than the second priority value, then the first packet is transmitted over the shared data path. If the second priority value is determined to be lower than the first priority value, then the second packet is transmitted over the shared data path.

  • Patent number: 10038584
    Abstract: An OFDM transmitter spreads original data symbols with a complex-valued spreading matrix derived from a discrete Fourier transform. Spread data symbols are mapped to OFDM subcarriers. Spreading and mapping are configured to produce a transmitted spread-OFDM signal with a low peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) and orthogonal code spaces. In MIMO systems, the complex-valued spreading matrix can comprise a MIMO precoding matrix, and the code spaces can comprise MIMO subspaces. In Cooperative-MIMO, a combination of low code-space cross correlation and low PAPR can be achieved.

  • Patent number: 10003909
    Abstract: Means for enabling the integration of a Sensor Management System (SMS) to a programmable radio access network (ProgRAN) controller are described. The integration allows an efficient management of the radio access network capacity as the needs for the backhaul of the sensor network changes. When a sensor is turned on or programmed to a higher profile, which requires larger wireless backhaul bandwidth, the associated wireless link on the programmable RAN is instantly allocated with more network resources by the controller to accommodate the additional sensor traffic. One implementation could be a software application on a computer, which attaches to both the SMS and the RAN controller, and mediates the messaging in real-time between these two components.
