  • Patent number: 10694261
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described that relate to on-demand compression for electronic data, such as media content, through a communication pathway. The communication pathway may be configured to multicast media content to a plurality of end-users in a service group. In certain embodiments, the service group may comprise a service group node having a quadrature amplitude modulation device. In one exemplary method, it may be determined whether the amount of media content being transmitted meets a first utilization threshold. The determination may be based on, at least in part, by measurements taken at one or more electronic devices located throughout a network or system. If the first bandwidth utilization threshold is not met, media content may be transmitted in a first format. If the first bandwidth utilization threshold is met, at least a portion of the media content may be transmitted in a first optimized delivery technique.

  • Patent number: 10687359
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. In some wireless systems utilizing shared radio frequency spectrum bands, base stations may operate in different listen before talk (LBT) modes. For example, a base station may operate in an LBT enabled mode or a non-LBT enabled mode. A UE may perform system acquisition with the base station based on receiving acquisition signals (e.g., synchronization signals and physical broadcast channel (PBCH) signals) from the base station. These acquisition signals may depend on the LBT mode of the base station. For example, the frame timing and number of subframes for the acquisition signals may be based on the LBT mode of the base station. In some cases, a base station may adaptively switch LBT modes, and the UE may re-synchronize with the base station based on an LBT configuration period or a paging message from the base station.

  • Patent number: 10664910
    Abstract: Systems and methods disclosed in this application are related to furnishing consumer-permissioned alternative data to one or more credit bureaus (e.g., Equifax, Experian, TransUnion, or any other worldwide CRA/major credit bureau). A user of the service platform provides credentials sufficient to access that user's account with a biller. Those credentials can be passed on to a third-party bill management and payment platform, which uses the credentials to log into the user's account with the biller. In some embodiments, bill data can be requested directly from a third-party biller without using a third-party bill management and payment platform. The third-party bill management and payment platform retrieves bill data from the biller and passes the bill data back to the service platform. The service platform then processes that bill data before generating a report to send to one or more credit bureaus.

  • Patent number: 10666417
    Abstract: A system capable of synchronizing clocks on separate devices despite variable delays between the separate devices. The system may compensate for skew (e.g., difference between clocks) and drift (e.g., frequency offset between clocks). The system may determine the skew and drift based on differences between timestamps when packets are sent from a first device to a second device and vice versa. For example, the system may estimate a first line corresponding to the fastest packets from the first device to the second device and may estimate a second line corresponding to the fastest packets from the second device to the first device. The system may determine the skew based on a midpoint between the first line and the second line, and the drift based on a slope of the first line or the second line.

The transmitting wireless device may generate the WUR frame, where the WUR frame has a first portion that includes a first field. The first field may indicate whether the WUR frame is a fixed length frame or a variable length frame. The transmitting wireless device may also determine a frame check sequence (FCS) type for use with a WUR frame for transmission. The FCS portion may be capable of being one of a plurality of FCS types. The transmitting wireless device may transmit the WUR frame to the one or more intended receiving wireless devices.

  • Patent number: 10657591
    Abstract: Disclosed embodiments provide systems and methods related to collecting return items using an automated kiosk based on a real time risk decision. The automated kiosk captures return item information representing a return item and transmits the return item information and a request for return risk level relating to the return item to a server operable to execute a machine learning model trained on historical information to determine the risk level. The server determines the risk level based on the received return by using the machine learning model and transmits the determined risk level to the kiosk in real-time. Based on the determined risk level and a return amount associated with the return item, the server may also process a refund in real-time.
