  • Patent number: 10320675
    Abstract: A gateway router can receive an Interest that includes a location-independent name for a data collection. If the Interest does not include an Anchor Identifier, the gateway router can perform a lookup operation in a name-prefix forwarding-information base (NP-FIB) to select an Anchor Identifier for a target anchor node, and to select an interface for forwarding the Interest toward the anchor. The router can update the Interest to include the Anchor Identifier prior to forwarding the Interest via the interface. An edge or core router that receives the Interest can perform a lookup in a routing table using the Interest's Anonymous Identifier (AID) to obtain an interface toward the anchor node and a second AID that is to be used by the next-hop neighbor to process the Interest. The router may then update the Interest to replace the Interest's AID with the second AID prior to forwarding the Interest.

  • Patent number: 10305645
    Abstract: A unified frame structure for filter bank multi-carrier (FBMC) and orthogonal frequency division multiplexed (OFDM) waveforms may allow FBMC and OFDM frames to be communicated over a common channel without significant inter-frame gaps. The unified frame structure may set an FBMC frame duration to an integer multiple of an OFDM frame element duration to enable alignment of FBMC frames and OFDM frames in the time domain. The unified frame structure may also map control channels in the FBMC and OFDM frames to common resource locations so that the respective control channels are aligned in the time and/or frequency domains. The unified frame structure may also share synchronization channels between FBMC and OFDM frames. Additionally, overhead in an FBMC time division duplexed (TDD) communications channel can be reduced by overlapping time windows appended to FBMC blocks.

  • Patent number: 10292105
    Abstract: In order to facilitate reduced power consumption of an electronic device (such as a smartphone) when communicating with another electronic device (such as an access point) in a wireless network, the electronic device may change a frequency of network scans performed by an interface circuit in the electronic device based on a motion profile of the electronic device. In particular, the electronic device may determine the motion profile based on spatial information, such as: acceleration data, orientation data, Global Positioning System data and/or data from the wireless network. Then, the electronic device may change the frequency of the network scans performed by the interface circuit based on the motion profile. In this way, the frequency of the network scans can be reduced when the electronic device is stationary or moving rapidly (such as when a user of the electronic device is driving in a car).
