  • Patent number: 10523557
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to mechanisms for interworking between legacy and next generation radio access technologies (RATs) in a communication network. In some examples, a handover from a next generation access network to a legacy access network may be performed via a next generation core network and a legacy core network. A handover request received at a next generation core network serving node may include an identifier of a target cell within the legacy access network. The next generation core network serving node may identify a legacy core network serving node to which the handover may be forwarded based on the target cell identifier. Packet data units may then be routed over the legacy access network and the next generation core network by mapping data flows in the next generation core network to packet data connections in the legacy access network.

  • Patent number: 10447517
    Abstract: Various features related to using a multi-port synchronization signal as reference for demodulating a multi-port broadcast channel are described. In an aspect, a synchronization signal, e.g., SSS, may be repurposed to serve as a demodulation reference for a downlink channel, e.g., PBCH, thereby obviating the need for a base station to send an additional reference signal for PBCH demodulation. A base station may select two or more logical antenna ports to transmit a synchronization signal, transmit the synchronization signal from the selected two or more logical antenna ports, and transmit information on the PBCH, from at least the selected two or more logical antenna ports. A UE may receive the synchronization signal from the two or more logical antenna ports at the base station, receive information on the PBCH from the at least the two or more logical antenna ports, and demodulate the information based on the received synchronization signal.

  • Patent number: 10382284
    Abstract: A commissioning system and method that applies a design configuration, representative of a building automation and control system, to a mesh network of network-capable devices. A cloud-based server system works in concert with an installing device, such as a smartphone or tablet, to apply the relevant configuration of scenarios and spaces, as defined in the design configuration during a design phase, to each mesh node in the mesh network. The commissioning system first transforms the defined scenarios and spaces, which essentially represent a logical configuration of the building automation and control system, into a network-centric configuration. Then, the system decomposes the network-centric configuration into a physical configuration of each mesh node, resulting in a set of parameters for each mesh node. The commissioning system then transmits the set of parameters, including one or more group addresses, to the applicable mesh node, for each affected mesh node in the network.

  • Patent number: 10349304
    Abstract: Techniques that provide for intelligent routing of mobile device traffic using custom protocols or protocols that are otherwise unsuitable for optimization by a mobile accelerator system are discussed herein. Some embodiments may include a point-of-presence (POP) configured to manage a dynamic listing defining a listing of content server associated with traffic that is not suitable for being optimized. Upon receiving traffic from the content server, the POP may be configured to access the dynamic filter, and route data transfers between the mobile device and the content server to bypass the mobile accelerator system when indicated by the dynamic filter. The POP may be further configured to update the dynamic filter, such as by adding or removing content servers based on parsing associated traffic for optimization suitability and/or protocol use.
