  • Patent number: 11652908
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods for enabling an application developer to define CDN behavior (e.g., caching rules) alongside an application program code and embedded in the same source code. The systems and methods can be used to define CDN or edge caching behavior using custom cache keys that go beyond simply using a URL. The custom cache keys and source code CDN behavior definitions can be used to enable a graphical user interface to specify traffic rules in a codeless interface. The described embodiments can be used for defining general traffic routing, to test different versions of the application or to otherwise present different versions of the application to end users, while preserving cache keys and caching behavior at the edge and throughout the application distribution layers.

  • Patent number: 11647063
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to a methods and apparatus to perform improved trickplay for higher speeds and high-latency networks. In one aspect, the method comprises receiving, in a processor, data comprising a video or audiovisual signal formatted in a sequence of chunks downloaded sequentially over a communications medium. When the processor receives a command to display the data at a trickplay speed that is higher than normal speed, the processor can begin to skip a number of chunks before downloading a next chunk in the sequence of chunks, decoding, and displaying the decoded chunk. The number of skipped chunks between each downloaded chunk may be a preset number and/or may be dynamically determined in the event that a downloaded chunk is skipped because it is not downloaded in time or if the expected download time of the next chunk is longer than the display time of the current chunk.

  • Patent number: 11637913
    Abstract: Methods and systems for automatically determining correspondences between communication ports of a networked device and encoders and decoders connected to those communication ports. In some embodiments, the networked device and the encoders and decoders are connected to a video communications network provided by a switch. The networked device can query the video communications network for information related to the encoders and decoders to determine and save the port-to-device correspondences. In some embodiments, the networked device can extract device information from video signals received at its input ports to map the input ports to respectively connected decoders. In similar fashion, the networked device may transmit or embed port-specific information from its output ports to respectively connected encoders. Then, the networked device can query the video communications network for the port-specific information received at the encoders to map the output ports to respectively connected encoders.

  • Patent number: 11616824
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer readable media can be operable to facilitate the intercept and manipulation of content requested by a client device. The methods, systems, and apparatuses described herein enable the interception and redirection of packets based upon a set of rules. Intercepted packets may be redirected away from an origin server and may be forwarded to a splicing device. The splicing device may establish a session with a corresponding origin server, and retrieve content that is requested by the intercepted packet. In embodiments, the splicing device may identify alternate content that is associated with the intercepted packet and/or content that is further associated with a device or subscriber associated with the packet. One or more segments of the requested content, or the entirety of the requested content may be replaced with the alternate content, and the modified content may be output to the client device requesting the content.

  • Patent number: 11588782
    Abstract: Mapping anonymous Internet entities to known accounts. In an embodiment, events, representing online activity and comprising IP addresses, are received from a plurality of sources. Subsets of the events are aggregated into mappings that associate the IP address, shared by the subset, with an account. Each mapping is associated with statistics regarding the events. A confidence value is calculated for each mapping based on the statistics, and a final subset of the mappings is selected based on the confidence values. Subsequently, when a request with an IP address is received, the final subset of mappings is searched for the requested IP address, and an indication of the account associated with the requested IP address is returned in response to the request.

  • Patent number: 11554077
    Abstract: A pool or spa system includes networked pool or spa devices that can be dynamically configured with network address by a controller. The controller can transmit a device discovery request on a network and can receive a discovery response from pool or spa devices that require a network address. The system determines and assigns the network addresses for the pool or spa devices based on unique device identifiers associated with the responding pool or spa devices. The network addresses assigned to the pool or spa device are transmitted to the pool or spa device to be used by the pool or spa devices to communicate with the controller over the network. The system can be used to discover and assign addresses to various types of pool or spa devices, such as pumps, underwater lights, chlorinators, water feature controllers, remote controllers, and/or other types of devices.

  • Patent number: 11539658
    Abstract: One or more protocols between a control plane entity (e.g., a mobility management entity (MME)) and its peer nodes (e.g., mobile switching center (MSC) and/or short message service center (SMSC)) are enhanced to improve short messaging services for Internet of things (IoT) devices. Oftentimes, IoT devices enter an extended sleep mode during which they cannot be reached by the control plane entity. In one aspect, the control plane entity can determine a wait period based on information, such as, but not limited to, device context data, mapping tables, policy data, commercial traffic data, latency data, device delay tolerance, sleep mode timer values, etc. The wait period can be provided to the peer nodes, which can utilize the wait period to control one or more message retry mechanisms based on IoT device behaviors resulting in an improvement of overall IoT service behaviors and a delivery of superior IoT customer experience.
