  • Patent number: 11057869
    Abstract: In a base station that transmits data to a first terminal in coordination with a coordination-providing base station, and functions as a connection-making base station that instructs the coordination-providing base station on a transmission parameter that is used for coordinated communication, a reception processor receives first CSI between the connection-making base station and the first terminal from the first terminal, and, receives, from each of at least one or more second terminals other than the first terminal, second CSI between the connection-making base station and a second terminal, and third CSI between the coordination-providing base station and at least one second terminal, a CSI estimator configures the third CSI which corresponds to a terminal, to which the first CSI and the second CSI are the closest, of the at least one or more second terminals, as an estimation value of CSI between the coordination-providing base station and the first terminal.

  • Patent number: 11057239
    Abstract: Two communication ECUs which can be disposed in different areas on a vehicle are equipped with respective communication relays which are connected to each other by an interarea connection unit. The functions of each of the communication relays are simplified and separated from the functions of a router. When receiving a signal, the communication relays outputs the signal to another, belonging to the same system as the communication line from which the signal has been received, of communication lines and to the router. The router controls a route of a signal to be transmitted between different systems of communication lines that are one of the communication lines and one of the communication lines. Since the communication relays are low in cost and can operate at high speed and the number of routers is decreased, the components cost can be lowered.

  • Patent number: 11025531
    Abstract: A hybrid access gateway receives packets that are sent by a network side device and are destined for a home gateway. When detecting that congestion occurs on a first transmission link and that no congestion occurs on a second transmission link, the hybrid access gateway obtains a first committed information rate (CIR) of the first transmission link and a second CIR of the second transmission link, classifies the packets into a first-type packet and a second-type packet, and transmits the first-type packet using the first transmission link and the second-type packet using the second transmission link. By properly allocating packets transmitted on the second transmission link, the hybrid access gateway can control one-way delays of the first transmission link and the second transmission link, thereby avoiding a packet loss caused by a sequencing buffer overflow.

  • Patent number: 11019110
    Abstract: A wireless access point is configured to regularly monitor the status of WLAN, WAN and ePDG data links to determine whether the current connections are sufficient to support VoWiFI services. When a device connects to the WLAN of the hub and attempts to switch from its VoLTE service to VoWiFi via the hub, the hub is configured to determine whether the current conditions can satisfy a VoWiFi connection. If the VoWiFi service can support the connection, the request is routed to the ePDG associated with the mobile device's subscriber LTE network. However, if the current conditions cannot satisfactorily support a VoWiFi connection such that incoming calls may be missed or the quality of active calls would not be clear, then the hub is configured to block the request so that the client device will time out and remain connected to VoLTE.

Each network parameter vector of the first network parameter vectors comprises first optimal values, estimated by a Bayesian learning module using a generative model, for network parameters. Second network parameter vectors are generated over the same time period. Each network parameter vector of the second network parameter vectors comprises second optimal values, computed by a best parameter generator through optimizing an objective function, for the network parameters. It is determined whether the first network parameter vectors converge to the second network parameter vectors and whether network parameter optimization for the network parameters is performing normally.

  • Patent number: 10917504
    Abstract: Technologies are provided for identifying the source of cyclic redundancy check (CRC) errors within a computer network that uses cut-through forwarding of network packets. For example, inbound network packets can be received by a network device that is configured to perform cut-through forwarding. Once the network packets are received, they are processed using cut-through forwarding. In addition to the cut-through forwarding, at least some of the received network packets are duplicated to create duplicate network packets. The duplicate network packets are processed using a different procedure. For example, the duplicate network packets are processed (e.g., as part of a secondary processing pipeline) by performing CRC checks on the duplicate network packets to detect CRC errors. Based on the CRC checks, source devices that originated network packets with CRC errors can be identified.
