  • Patent number: 11997000
    Abstract: A method for time sensitive network (TSN) operation includes: in the case of data traffic stoppage in a communication channel of TSN due to at least one of down time of a user plane (UP) connection and a reset of the UP connection, performing the following: generating, by a user plane function (UPF), an audit report about the at least one of the down time and the reset; sending, by the UPF, the audit report to a first element in control plane (CP), without waiting for communication from the CP; and determining, by one of the first element or a second element in the CP, survival time of the communication channel. The audit report is sent along with a report type indicating the down time of the UP connection due to connection fluctuation or a switch-over of the UP connection from a primary UPF to a back-up UPF.

  • Patent number: 11985048
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods for a robust Self-Organizing Network (SON) framework that quantifies SON applications' control and management of a network into key performance indicators (KPI) that are leveraged to determine the impact of a SON application's effectiveness in regulating network parameters, which then dictates how the SON application operates. The disclosed framework is configured to receive multiple data streams from existing data sources, determine the performance of a node on a network, and then automatically perform SON operations based therefrom. The disclosed framework can utilize this information to predict additional and/or future opportunities for SON automation on the network, which can be based on an aggregate determination of a net performance gain (NPG) of the SON applications. The framework can leverage the NPG to modify, configure and/or further maintain network operations so as to improve control and management of the network and the applications operating thereon.

  • Patent number: 11962475
    Abstract: The properties of a plurality of operational units are estimated by generating a central system state graph model representing the properties of the plurality of operational units as probabilities of transitions between states for the plurality of operational units, where the states represent operational data. Then a respective updated system state graph model is generated for each of the plurality of operational units, based on the central system state graph model and based on new operational data for the respective operational unit. A distance measure is determined between the respective updated system state graph models. If the distance measure fulfils a divergence criterion, a plurality of new central system state graph models are generated, each representing the properties of a respective subset of the plurality of operational units as the probabilities of transitions between states for the respective subset of the plurality of operational units.

  • Patent number: 11962627
    Abstract: Executable code comprising a local file system is stored at a collaboration system server for downloading. The remote collaboration system responds to a message from a user device to download the local file system. The local file system to be downloaded is configured to operate on the user device so as to issue requests from the user device to perform an initial access to server-side collaboration data. The collaboration system responds to such requests by predicting interests of the user, which predictions are used to retrieve additional server-side collaboration data. The additional server-side collaboration data is sent to the user device and stored on the user device in an area for locally-stored collaboration system information. The user provides search terms for searching the locally-stored collaboration system information, and results are displayed on the user device. The results are displayed without the need to perform additional communications with remote collaboration system.

  • Patent number: 11909618
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a device computes, for each of a set of points of presence (PoPs) via which traffic for an online application can be sent from a location, application experience metrics predicted for the application over time. The device assigns, for each of the set of PoPs, weights to different time periods, based on measures of uncertainty associated with the predicted application experience metrics. The device generates, based on the weights assigned to the different time periods for each of the set of PoPs, schedules for probing network paths connecting the location to the online application via those PoPs. The device causes the network paths to be probed in accordance with their schedules. Results of this probing are used to select a particular PoP from among the set of PoPs via which traffic for the online application should be sent from the location during a certain time period.
