  • Patent number: 11032201
    Abstract: An apparatus and method for classifying traffic data in a communication network based on IP flow. Traffic data in a communication network is monitored in order to detect an IP flow. A preliminary classification is assigned to the IP flow based on protocol information contained in its first packet. Subsequent packets within the IP flow are further monitored, and the IP flow is reclassified based, in part, on the domain name of the responding server. Web pages can also be classified, and monitored to determine their response time.

  • Patent number: 11026057
    Abstract: Methods and systems for sending multicast messages are disclosed. A multicast message is received to be transmitted to a plurality of access terminals at a radio access network (RAN), the received multicast message having a first format. The first format may correspond to a conventional multicast message format. The RAN determines whether the received multicast message requires special handling. If the RAN determines the received multicast message requires special handling, the radio access network converts the received multicast message from the first format into a second format. The RAN transmits the converted multicast message with the second format (e.g., a data over signaling (DOS) message) on a control channel to at least one of the plurality of access terminals. The access terminals receiving the converted multicast message interpret the message as a multicast message.

  • Patent number: 11012186
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and instrumentalities are disclosed for error check-based synchronization. Physical Broadcast Channel (PBCH) data may be determined. A scrambling (e.g., a first scrambling) of the PBCH data may be scrambled via a sequence (e.g., a first sequence). The first sequence may be based on a cell ID and/or timing information. Error check bits may be attached to the scrambled PBCH data and to the timing information. The error check bits may include one or more cyclic redundancy check (CRC) bits. The scrambled PBCH data, the timing information (e.g., the unscrambled timing information), and/or the attached error check bits may be polar encoded. The polar encoding may result in polar encoded bits. A scrambling (e.g., a second scrambling) of the polar encoded bits may be scrambled via a sequence (e.g., a second sequence). The first sequence and the second sequence may be different. The polar encoded bits may be transmitted.

  • Patent number: 10999127
    Abstract: Remediation of network devices that are failing is accomplished using a Shared Failure Domain (SFD) database that provides neighboring device/link information to remediation tools. SFD refers to a group of objects (links/devices) that share a same failure model. A state change of one or multiple of the objects results in a corresponding action on other devices linked together through the SFD. Moreover, the SFD data is available in a central repository and software tools consult the central repository for failure domain data before taking remedial actions. SFD data is generated using configuration generation and device state. Software tools lookup SFD data during operational events (device/link down) and take appropriate actions on the neighboring devices.
