  • Patent number: 10080247
    Abstract: Even when a terminal goes out of a macro cell, data communication in the small cell can be caused to continue while the mobile management in a macro cell is continued. When a first determination unit (205) determines that a terminal exists outside the cell of a base station (200), an existence recognition packet transmission/reception unit (207) transmits a recognition packet, which is used for recognition, to the terminal via a small cell, and thereafter receives a response to the recognition packet from the terminal via the small cell. When a second determination unit (206) determines, because of the reception of the response, that the terminal exits inside the cell of the base station (200), a radio resource control unit (204) causes the connection of the control plane between the terminal and the base station (200) to continue.

  • Patent number: 9980206
    Abstract: In order to shorten the time in which an initial connection is established when switching directivity and then performing the initial connection, a frame timing control unit sets, until detection of an RACH signal, a transmission timing of a transmission frame for transmitting a search signal and a broadcast signal and also sets a reception-start timing for starting the reception of the corresponding RACH signal. A search/broadcast signal generation unit generates the broadcast signal and the search signal including reception-timing information. A beam directivity control unit sets, for a predetermined time starting from the reception-start timing, a directivity pattern such that the directivity is in the same direction as the directivity pattern for the corresponding transmission-timing information, whereby the beam directivity control unit controls a beam directivity operation unit.

  • Patent number: 9954788
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a method for estimating bandwidth estimate based on a set of statistical measurements that quantifies bandwidth variation. The method receives a piece of media content at a receiving device and computes several instantaneous bandwidth measurements based on sample data blocks or media content received at the receiving device. The method computes the set of statistical measures that quantifies variation between the computed instantaneous bandwidth measurements. Based on the set of statistical measures, the method computes a revised bandwidth estimate for receiving media content at the receiving device. In some embodiments, the method uses the revised bandwidth estimate to determine an amount of media content data to buffer in order to provide an uninterrupted playback.

  • Patent number: 9923978
    Abstract: A network switch includes a service registration database and a service discovery engine that is coupled to the service registration database. The service discovery engine receives a first service registration over a network from a first service included on a first service device and, in response, stores the first service registration in the service registration database. The service discovery engine then receives a multicast service discovery message over the network from a target device. The service discovery message includes a service identification. The service discovery engine then determines that the service identification is associated with the first service registration stored in the service registration database and, in response, sends a unicast service communication message over the network to the target device. The service communication message includes communication information for the first service.
