  • Patent number: 10743139
    Abstract: A wireless system device is a device to be mounted on a vehicle. The wireless system device includes a wireless communication unit, a condition detector, a position obtainer, and an operation controller. The wireless communication unit transmits a radio signal. The condition detector detects a first timing and a second timing. The first timing is a timing when the vehicle shifts from an operation state to a stop state. The second timing is a timing when the vehicle shifts from the stop state to the operation state for a first time after the first timing. The position obtainer obtains a first position and a second position. The first position and the second position are positions where the vehicle is at the first timing and the second timing, respectively. The operation controller controls operation of the wireless communication unit based on a distance between the first position and the second position.

    Abstract: Systems and methods for calculating uplink pathloss in a wireless local area network are provided. Uplink pathloss between an access point and client device operating in the wireless local area network can be calculated based on determining an effective maximum transmit power. Based on the effective maximum transmit power, and known uplink power headroom, a current transmit power of the client device can be determined. Based on the current transmit power of the client device, uplink pathloss can be determined. If the operating conditions and/or characteristics of the client device and/or wireless local area network change, the uplink pathloss may be re-evaluated.

  • Patent number: 10708170
    Abstract: A request for a chunk of data is received from an application executing on a remote device. The chunk of data is split into a plurality of packets including a first packet and a second packet. A first sub-flow is selected to transport the first packet to the remote device and a second sub-flow is selected to transport the second packet. The first sub-flow is decoupled from the second sub-flow. A first stop time is selected for the first sub-flow and a second stop time is selected for the second sub-flow. The first stop time determines when the first sub-flow will complete at the remote device and the second stop time determines when the second sub-flow will complete at the remote device. The first stop time and the second stop time are selected so that the first sub-flow and the second sub-flow will complete simultaneously at the remote device.

  • Patent number: 10693801
    Abstract: Implementations of the disclosure provide for queuing portions of the network traffic directed to a migrated guest for both receiving and transmitting at a source of the migration. In one implementation, a method is provided. The method comprises receiving, by a processing device via a network interface card (NIC), a first data packet. The first data packet includes a network address associated with a virtual machine (VM) that migrates from a first host to a second host. The first data packet is queued in a memory buffer at the first host in view of the network address. An indication that the network address of the VM is associated with the second host is received. Thereupon, the method causes the NIC to transmit the first data packet from the memory buffer over a network associated with the VM at the second host.

  • Patent number: 10686581
    Abstract: A method for transmit timestamp autocalibration includes generating a calibration pulse for calibrating a transmit timestamp in a transmitting device. The method further includes applying the calibration pulse to a transmit data pipeline in the transmitting device. The method further includes sampling a transmit timestamp when the calibration pulse reaches a timestamp sample triggering location in the transmit data pipeline upstream from an egress point of the transmitting device. The method further includes measuring a latency between a time that the calibration pulse reaches the timestamp sample triggering location and a time that the calibration pulse reaches a location downstream from the timestamp sample triggering location. The method further includes generating an adjusted timestamp based on the measured latency and inserting the adjusted timestamp into a data packet to be transmitted from the transmitting device.

  • Patent number: 10681592
    Abstract: When a UE is served by a first radio access network (RAN) and is engaged in a voice call such as a VoIP call, a determination will be made that the UE is at an edge of coverage (e.g., threshold poor coverage) of the first RAN and that there is no other adjacent coverage of the first RAN that could support the voice call. In response, signaling will cause a second RAN to page the UE via the first RAN so as to cause the UE to transition from being served by the first RAN to being served by the second RAN. More generally, when a UE has poor coverage of its serving RAN, another RAN will pull the UE to the second RAN by paging the UE to trigger transition of the UE from to the second RAN.
