  • Patent number: 10292163
    Abstract: Methods and systems for device-to-device (D2D) communication between a first device and a second device. The first device receives a communication transmitted by the second device, where the communication is intended for another recipient other than the first device. The communication provides information for the first device to determine a preferred transmit sector to be used by the second device for the D2D communication. The first device transmits a communication to the second device that provides information indentifying the preferred transmit sector to be used by the second device. As a receiver in the D2D communication, the first device receives data from the second device, transmitted on the preferred transmit sector. As a transmitter in the D2D communication, the first device transmits data to the second device on a preferred transmit sector identified in another communication received from the second device.

  • Patent number: 10291474
    Abstract: A method and system is provided for distributed optimal caching for information centric networking. The system and method disclosed herein enables each router/node in the network to make an independent decision to solve the optimization problem based upon a cost feedback from its neighbors. Content is received by a first router which determines if it should store the content in its cache based on a Characterizing Metrics (CM) value or send it to a neighbor router j, where the neighbor router j is selected based on a transaction cost determination. The node j on receiving the content shared with itself again performs similar computation to determine if the content should be stored in its cache. The method is performed iteratively for optimal distributed caching.
