  • Patent number: 11930107
    Abstract: An entangled links mechanism to establish and maintain bipartite temporal intimacy between pairs of computers using an idempotent, reversible token method, which presents no observable external “change” until communication of information needs to occur between the computers and which maintains the potential for “bounded (or unbounded) reversibility” in case the intended information dispatched by a source computational entity is not captured or properly accepted by a destination computational entity. The mechanism enables distributed computers in a network to remain continuously aware of each other's presence; to communicate on a logically nearest neighbor basis in a secure and reliable manner in which packets passed over these links do not conflict with normal traffic or cause the available resources of the link to exceeded; and that atomicity, isolation, and “reversible durability” may be maintained for transactions when perturbations occur.

  • Patent number: 11909521
    Abstract: A network testing device may receive, from a base station, an encoded physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) payload and decode the encoded PDCCH payload to obtain candidate PDCCH payloads and to generate path metrics (PMs), wherein each PM of the PMs corresponds to one candidate PDCCH payload of the candidate PDCCH payloads. The network testing device may perform a cyclic redundancy check on each of the candidate PDCCH payloads to determine, from the PMs, a passing PM, and may determine, based on the PMs, a confidence value associated with the passing PM. The network testing device may discard, based on determining that the confidence value does not satisfy a threshold, the passing PM, or may output, based on determining that the confidence value satisfies the threshold, a candidate PDCCH payload corresponding to the passing PM. The network testing device may transmit, based on the candidate PDCCH payload, data to the base station.
