  • Patent number: 10785117
    Abstract: Techniques for providing a backup network path using a standby wide area network (WAN) link with reducing monitoring. Packet loss and latency metrics are monitored for network paths in an adaptive private network (APN) connecting a first user and a second user according to control traffic operating at a first control bandwidth for each network path. A determination is made that a first network path uses a standby WAN link, has packet loss and latency metrics indicative of a good quality state, and has at least one characteristic that identifies the first network path as a backup network path. The control traffic is then reduced for the backup network path to a second control bandwidth substantially less than the first control bandwidth. The backup network path is made active when the number of active network paths is less than or equal to a minimum number.

  • Patent number: 10778593
    Abstract: Embodiments for communicating packets with a first port of a network element without the first port being communicatively coupled to another device (e.g., testing equipment) are described. In one embodiment, a packet is generated by testing equipment that is communicatively coupled to a second port of the network element. The packet includes a tag that uniquely identifies the first port. The network element communicates the packet from the second port to the first port based on the tag. The network element also removes the tag from the packet. The removal can occur before the packet is received at the first port or after the packet is received at an ingress module of the first port. In response to the removal of the tag, the network element enters the first port into a loopback mode that is internal to the first port.

  • Patent number: 10749635
    Abstract: Embodiments of a system and method for random access and scheduling request for new radio things sidelink are generally described herein. In some embodiments, a nUE (network user equipment) schedules a RA (random access) resource in a control channel. The nUE decodes a TAS (transmitter resource acquisition and sounding) payload, received from a wUE (wearable user equipment) in a PRB (physical resource block) addressed to a RA-ID (random access identifier) associated with the nUE. The nUE encodes, in response to decoding the TAS payload, a RAS (receiver resource acknowledgement and sounding) payload in the PRB. The nUE decodes initial access content received via a data channel from the wUE, the initial access content including a pro posed temp ID (temporary identifier) for addressing the wUE. The nUE encode, in response to the initial access content, an ACK (acknowledgement), addressed to the wUE, to accept initial access of the wUE.

  • Patent number: 10742283
    Abstract: Transmit diversity schemes may be used for sending sequence-based signals over multiple antennas. For example, a user equipment (UE) may determine an uplink sequence to be transmitted to a base station using multiple antennas. The UE may utilize a transmit diversity scheme for the multiple-antenna transmission of the uplink sequence, where the transmit diversity scheme utilized may be based on a number of symbol periods during which the sequence is transmitted. In accordance with the transmit diversity scheme, the UE may use multiple transmit antennas to transmit different sequences from respective antennas. In other examples, the UE may transmit the uplink sequence using different time or frequency resources. Additionally, the UE may use some combination of different transmit diversity schemes for sequence-based signals. In some aspects, the base station may provide an indication of the transmit diversity scheme that the UE is to use for transmitting the uplink sequence.
