  • Patent number: 10524281
    Abstract: Method performed by a network node for scheduling one or more bearers for transmission to or from a wireless device. The wireless device is serviced by the network node. The network node calculates a weight for each bearer of the one or more bearers. The calculating is based on an indication of a quality of service associated with information to be transmitted in each bearer of the one or more bearers. The network node schedules the one or more bearers for transmission to or from the wireless device based on the calculated weight. The calculated weight corresponds to a Listen-Before-Talk, LBT, setting. The LBT setting comprises an LBT algorithm and its corresponding one or more parameters.

  • Patent number: 10511509
    Abstract: Technologies for low-latency data streaming include a computing device having a processor that includes a producer and a consumer. The producer generates a data item, and in a local buffer producer mode adds the data item to a local buffer, and in a remote buffer producer mode adds the data item to a remote buffer. When the local buffer is full, the producer switches to the remote buffer producer mode, and when the remote buffer is below a predetermined low threshold, the producer switches to the local buffer producer mode. The consumer reads the data item from the local buffer while operating in a local buffer consumer mode and reads the data item from the remote buffer while operating in a remote buffer consumer mode. When the local buffer is above a predetermined high threshold, the consumer may switch to a catch-up operating mode. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 10419284
    Abstract: A first fabric abstraction layer couples to a data link layer and a physical layer of a network fabric device. The network fabric device is connected to other network elements within a network via at least one network connection, such as a fiber optic connection. A second fabric abstraction layer couples to the data link layer and an application of the network device. The second fabric abstraction layer provides an application programming interface (API) to the application. The API allows the application to generate configuration instructions for configuring the at least one network connection. Upon receiving the configuration instructions generated by the application, the second abstraction layer sends the configuration instructions to the first abstraction layer via the data link layer. The first abstraction layer then configures the at least one network connection to transmit data according to the configuration instructions.
