  • Patent number: 10993154
    Abstract: A cell site of a cellular communication network may have both a Long-Term Evolution (LTE) base station and a New Radio (NR) base station to support NR Standalone connectivity and Non-Standalone (NSA) dual connectivity. The NR base station broadcasts system information from which a cellular device can determine relative service qualities of a NR Standalone connection and an NSA connection. The cellular device receives these qualities and compares them to determine whether to initially attach to the LTE base station or to the NR base station. Similarly, during cell reselection, the cellular device receives service quality information from a target LTE base station so that the cellular device can determine whether to attach to the target LTE base station or to an associated NR base station.

  • Patent number: 10880382
    Abstract: An Internet of Things (IoT) pairing controller is described that enables an end-user to customize the implementation of IoT devices. The IoT pairing controller may receive a pairing request to pair a combination of active-active IoT devices or active-passive IoT devices. The IoT pairing controller may facilitate a selection of a pairing signal type that is used to pair the IoT devices, such as light, sound, heat, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi. An end-user may select multiple pairing signal types, of which the IoT pairing controller may toggle between based on ambient environmental conditions, or as a failsafe confirmation of a “not sensed” pairing condition between IoT devices. The IoT pairing controller may associate client-defined statements with paired (i.e. sensed”) and unpaired (i.e. “not sensed”) pairing conditions of a pair of IoT devices.
