  • Patent number: 11323495
    Abstract: Information regarding application usage on an actor device may be provided through activity notifications and activity reports. An activity notification describing current application activity on an actor device is sent, via wireless connection, to an observer device which displays the activity notification. Activity notifications provide different granularity levels of information based on a received level selection or based on a distance (proximity) between the actor device and the observer device. An activity report representing the history of application usage on an actor device may be displayed on the actor device. For example, the activity report may be triggered to by displayed when the actor device is placed flat. The activity report provides a graphical representation of the application usage on the actor device for a predetermined time period of prior usage. The graphical representation may comprise a plurality of stripes, each stripe representing a particular application or application type.

  • Patent number: 11263283
    Abstract: A computing system directs a transmission of a first data piece and a second data piece to an electronic device, when the electronic device is engaged in an initial web browser session on an initial web browser, for storage in an electronic device memory. The first data piece is associated with a first domain linked to the initial web browser and contains an electronic device identification. The second data piece is associated with a second domain linked to the initial web browser and contains the electronic device identification. The computing system retrieves the second data piece from the electronic device memory when the computing system is unable to retrieve the first data piece from the electronic device memory. The second data piece retrieved from the electronic device contains the electronic device identification and items of anonymous personal identification information provided by the electronic device during the initial web browser session.

  • Patent number: 11258822
    Abstract: Embodiments of this application provide a network function service discovery method and a device. The method performed by an NRF includes: after establishing a communication connection to the NF, obtaining a digital certificate of the NF in a TLS or DTLS two-way authentication process, where the digital certificate of the NF carries a service name of the NF, a service name list on which the NF relies, and a service name list that relies on the NF; receiving a query request for querying an address of a target service that is sent by the NF, where the query request carries a complete domain name of the target service; and performing verification based on the service name of the target service and the digital certificate of the NF, and sending the address of the target service to the NF when the verification succeeds. Therefore, the NF services are discovered.

  • Patent number: 11245607
    Abstract: The disclosure provides an approach for transferring files to cloud storage so as to reduce usage of on-premise storage units, and for dynamically reading ahead from cloud storage to improve read performance. In one embodiment, each storage unit in an on-premise storage system is considered independently, and a decision made to move files from a storage unit to cloud storage when utilization of that storage unit reaches an associated mid-water-mark. In particular, files may be transferred beginning with least-recently accessed and smallest files and proceeding until utilization percentage of the on-premise storage unit decreases to an associated low-water-mark. In addition, while files are being transferred to cloud storage, additional files may be written to the on-premise storage unit until an associated high-water-mark is touched, at which point any further writes are redirected to the cloud storage until usage of the on-premise storage unit is reduced to the low-water-mark or more.

  • Patent number: 11201904
    Abstract: Described herein are systems and methods for optimizing buffering of streamed content based on upcoming coverage. For example, during a trip, the bit rate for transmission and receipt of streamed content can be dynamically adjusted based on the upcoming coverage such that when the upcoming network coverage is limited, the bit rate of the streamed content can be increased to ensure the buffer is sufficiently large to allow the user to experience (or appear to experience) uninterrupted streaming during the limited network connectivity. The bit rate can be calculated based on calculating a buffer size that can provide content at the play rate for the duration that the device is in a minimal or no network coverage area.

  • Patent number: 11184648
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described herein for providing content during reduced streaming quality. Data streaming is susceptible to degradation in quality that adversely affects the delivery of content. For example, sufficient reduction in streaming quality can cause video and audio portions of a data stream to become unsynchronized. The system compares currently streamed video frames to previously received video frames to identify suitable replacement video frames for the currently streamed video frames in the event that the currently streamed video frames are affected by the sufficiently reduced streaming quality.
