  • Patent number: 10397866
    Abstract: The present invention relates to DRX technology and disclosed are a method and device for computing an activation time, which are used for solving the problem that a UE cannot enter an active state at an accurate time when using an extended DRX cycle. The method is: a network side notifying a UE of a serial number of a current SFN cycle in an extended DRX cycle, and the UE computing an activation time of the UE by combining the length of a preset extended DRX cycle in accordance with the serial number. In this way, when the extended DRX cycle is greater than the SFN cycle, the UE can still compute a correct paging time and/or a time of receiving service data, thereby entering the active state at an accurate time, effectively avoiding the situation where paging messages or service data are lost due to computation errors of the UE, then guaranteeing the service QoS of the UE and improving the service performance of the system.

  • Patent number: 10382582
    Abstract: The techniques may provide a hierarchical scheduler for dynamically computing rate credits when a plurality of queues share an intermediate node. For example, the hierarchical scheduler may group respective sets of queues with respective virtual subscribers to be associated with a shared intermediate node. The weight used by the shared intermediate node may be computed as a function of the number of virtual subscriber child members of the shared intermediate node and their respective weights to correctly proportion the services to the queues. The techniques may also provide a hierarchical scheduler for dynamically computing rate credits allocated to queues associated with a shared intermediate node. For example, the number of rate credits allocated to a queue for a virtual subscriber is based on the product of the virtual subscriber weight and a queue weighted fraction of the queues for the virtual subscriber.

  • Patent number: 10374786
    Abstract: Methods of estimating frequency skew in a packet network include determining a representation of a packet delay variation (PDV) sequence from an initial estimate of frequency skew between master and slave devices in the packet network and timestamps transmitted therebetween. An operation is performed to extract a statistical mode from an empirical probability distribution function (PDF) of the representation of the PDV sequence, where the statistical mode corresponds to a value at which the PDF has its maximum value. The, an updated estimate of the frequency skew is generated by determining a slope between timestamps at indices associated with a plurality of points in the representation of the PDV sequence that are within a range of the statistical mode.

  • Patent number: 10356658
    Abstract: In aspects of packet segmentation and reassembly for mesh networks, a source node in a mesh network segments an access protocol data unit (PDU) into a set of segments that are concatenated with a segment transport header and transmitted over the mesh network in segmented access messages to a destination node. The destination node allocates memory to store the content of the access PDU based on a segment total field in the segment transport header, and stores each received segment at the appropriate offset in the allocated memory, based on a value of a segment offset filed in each segmented access message. The destination node transmits a segment acknowledgement message including a segment acknowledgement field indicating which of the multiple segments have been received by the destination node.

  • Patent number: 10305789
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention include methods, systems, and computer program products for packet forwarding. Aspects of the invention include receiving, from a source node, a first network queue in a set of network queues, wherein the first network queue includes one or more minimum network traffic performance requirements. A set of network paths is analyzed to determine a performance level for each network path and identify a first network path and a second network path with a performance level above the one or more minimum performance requirements of the first network queue. A determination is made that the first network path has a higher performance level than the second network path. Based at least in part on determining that the first network path has a higher performance level than the second network path, the first network queue is mapped to the first network path.

  • Patent number: 10277506
    Abstract: A packet routing method for directing packets of a session in an IP network causes an intermediate node to obtain a lead packet of a plurality of packets in a given session. The intermediate node has an electronic interface in communication with the IP network and obtains the lead packet through that same interface. The method maintains, in a routing database, state information relating to a plurality of sessions in the IP network. Each session includes a single stateful session path formed by an ordered plurality of nodes in the IP network, and the state information includes information about the ordered plurality of nodes in the sessions. The method further accesses the routing database to determine the state of a plurality of sessions, and forms a stateful given path for packets of the given session across the IP network as a function of the state information in the routing database.

  • Patent number: 10277447
    Abstract: The present invention relates to adaptive modulation and coding scheme selection and signaling in a communication system. In particular, a modulation and coding scheme to be used for transmission of a data is selected from a set of predetermined modulation and coding schemes. The predetermination of the set is performed by selecting the set from a plurality of predefined sets. The sets have the same size, so that a modulation and coding selection indicator signaled to select the modulation and coding scheme may be advantageously applied to any of the selected sets. Moreover, a second set includes schemes with a modulation not covered by the schemes of a first set, and which is of a higher order than any modulation in the first set.
