  • Patent number: 11570791
    Abstract: Various embodiments provide a resource allocation method and an apparatus. In those embodiments, a terminal device obtains a first parameter indicating a maximum service data volume to be provided by an access network device for a first service in a first time length; and determines, based on the maximum service data volume, a resource of a media access control protocol data unit MAC PDU, the resource being occupied by buffered data of the first service. In those embodiments, the terminal device determines, based on the maximum service data volume of the first service, the resource of the MAC PDU. Compared with a conventional method, the maximum service data volume of the first service is considered. This helps improve reasonableness of allocating the resource of the MAC PDU to the data of the first service.

  • Patent number: 11553377
    Abstract: System, device, and method of cellular congestion management without cell awareness. A system defines applications as important or non-important. The system measures and monitors parameters related to cellular traffic, and remotely generates an estimate that a first User Equipment (UE) is experiencing cellular traffic congestion. A Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) Engine determines that the first UE is utilizing a first communication flow associated with an Important Application, and is also utilizing a second communication flow associated with a Non-Important Application. Filtering pass-through bitrate limits are enforced, selectively and remotely, on communication flows of the first UE, by enforcing a reduced bitrate limit on the second communication flow that is associated with a Non-Important Application, and by not enforcing a reduced bitrate limit on the first communication flow that is associated with an Important Application.

  • Patent number: 11444880
    Abstract: This disclosure describes a traffic control method and a related apparatus. When receiving a publish packet sent by a client, a serving end queries a window value of a flow control window of the client, and compares the window value with a preset window threshold. The serving end rejects the publish packet when the window value is equal to the window threshold, or when the window value is greater than the window threshold, decreases the window value by a preset value, and processes the publish packet. Thus, the problem that the serving end cannot process, in time, a message sent by the client because the client sends the message too fast when the message is transmitted between the client and the serving end, can be avoided so that communication can be normally performed.

  • Patent number: 11438254
    Abstract: A method is implemented by a switch in a software defined networking (SDN) network to trace packets in a packet processing pipeline of the switch. The method includes creating a copy of a received packet to function as a trace packet. The method further includes, at each of one or more subsequent flow tables that the trace packet traverses, appending an identifier of that flow table to a recorded route of the trace packet and resubmitting the trace packet to that flow table to be processed without packet tracing. The method further includes sending, at an egress table, the trace packet to a controller along with the recorded route of the trace packet.

  • Patent number: 11431619
    Abstract: Techniques and mechanisms for a control plane approach for dense topologies that focusses on discovering shared ECMP groups in the control plane independent of per-prefix learning and then learning prefixes via these shared ECMP groups instead of learning prefixes via one next-hop at a time. In dense topologies, this approach helps minimize BGP path scale, corresponding signaling and enables control plane scaling that is an order of magnitude higher than a traditional eBGP control plane. During link and node topology changes, the described control plane approach enables control plane signaling that is prefix independent and an order of magnitude lower. A control plane approach to path-list sharing and prefix independent signaling on link and node topology changes enables prefix independent convergence (PIC) in scenarios that would not be possible otherwise with traditional FIB driven path-list sharing and PIC.
