  • Patent number: 10164868
    Abstract: A physical host executes a virtual machine monitor (VMM) that instantiates a source virtual machine (VM). In response to the VMM receiving from the source VM a packet specifying a first destination address of a destination VM and a second destination address of a default gateway, the VMM determines whether the packet can be communicated to the destination VM without the packet being routed by the default gateway. In response to the VMM determining that the packet can be communicated to the destination VM without the packet being routed by the default gateway, the VMM forwards the packet to the destination VM such that the packet bypasses routing by the default gateway.

  • Patent number: 9912786
    Abstract: A demodulation section demodulates a received signal. A decoding section decodes an output from the demodulation section. A buffer temporarily stores a portion of the received signal. A header analyzing section gives the buffer timing at which demodulation and decoding of a payload of the received signal are initiated, on the basis of a result of combination of a plurality of header sequences included in a header of the received signal and results of processing of the demodulation section and the decoding section. An improved SNR is achieved by means of combination of the plurality of header sequences, so that an iterative decoding count used for decoding the header become smaller.

  • Patent number: 9642116
    Abstract: A method and system determines an absolute Multicast-Broadcast Single Frequency Network (MBSFN) configuration based on a threshold. First saved radio resources and first wasted radio resources are calculated. The absolute MBSFN configuration is set as the final MBSFN configuration when the first saved radio resources are greater than or equal to the first wasted radio resources. When untrue, the absolute MBSFN configuration plus an adjacent cell pool is set as the final MBSFN configuration based on the final MBSFN configuration achieving a maximum value of second saved radio resources minus second wasted radio resources. When both of these conditions are untrue, the absolute MBSFN configuration minus an MBSFN cell pool is set as the final MBSFN configuration based on the final MBSFN configuration achieving a maximum value of third saved radio resources minus third wasted radio resources.

  • Patent number: 9497494
    Abstract: The use of broadcast channels for television programming on a wireless telecommunications data network is optimized. Proxy servers at base stations receive more programming than can be broadcast by the base station. Programming then is queued for changes in broadcast content. Management servers coordinate the broadcasts across multiple sectors so that centralized control is possible. Management servers operate in conjunction with necessary gateways on the connectivity services network to route content to access service network. Quality of service (QoS) guarantees are actualized by centrally managing the broadcast of requested content from the proxy servers. Handoffs are possible from one area to another by coordinating the broadcasts across access service networks.
