  • Patent number: 10178522
    Abstract: Techniques to support emergency voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) calls are described. The techniques may be used for various 3GPP and 3GPP2 networks, various location architectures, and various types of User Equipment (UE). A UE communicates with a visited network to send a request to establish an emergency VoIP call. The UE interacts with a location server instructed by the visited network to obtain a first position estimate for the UE. The UE performs call setup via the visited network to establish the emergency VoIP call with a PSAP, which may be selected based on the first position estimate. The UE may thereafter perform positioning with the location server to obtain an updated position estimate for the UE, e.g., if requested by the PSAP.

  • Patent number: 10135713
    Abstract: A method is disclosed for the collection of performance metrics by establishing service operations administration and maintenance (OAM) sessions between an actuator and a plurality of reflectors in a communication network. Test packets from an actuator simultaneously reach a plurality of reflectors along a test path. Each single test packet results into a plurality of test results, one per reflector, with quasi-synchronous performance metrics to sectionalize a network and more efficiently isolate fault or performance problems without the need for additional test packets to isolate the issue. Another method is disclosed wherein an actuator generates and transmits a plurality of simultaneous test packets, one per NID device, resulting into a plurality of test results, one per reflector, with quasi-synchronous performance metrics to sectionalize a network and more efficiently isolate fault or performance problems without the need for additional test packets to isolate the issue.

  • Patent number: 10129779
    Abstract: A method, system and device for detecting a SILENCE period status 200A in a first device 101. The detection is performed by a second device 102 that is in communication with the first device, receiving transmissions of the first device. The SILENCE period status corresponds to a status wherein the first device has no speech samples to be transmitted towards the second apparatus. The second device receives, 413, transmissions from the first device and determines, 414A, 414B, 414C, the type of the received transmissions. The second device counts 415 the number of received transmissions of a first type, and times a time interval between the last received transmission of the first type and the last received transmission of a second determined type.

  • Patent number: 10123152
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, a device providing network communications services to user devices using a frequency band and to machine-to-machine (M2M) communication devices in the Internet of Things (IoT). The device monitors traffic loads in the frequency band due to the user devices and due to the M2M communication devices. Depending on the traffic loads, the M2M communication devices use a narrowband carrier within the frequency band, within the adjacent guard band, or separate from the frequency band and guard band as a standalone carrier. The narrowband M2M carriers are dynamically deployed to support the user devices and IoT devices. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10098082
    Abstract: Networked devices are arranged to play content such as audio and video content in synchronization. A synching device receives a packet from an initiating device over a network. The packet may include an identifier of content to play, such as a URI, and an indication of when to play the content. A local clock time to play the content is determined based on a time of a local clock of the first device and the indication of when to play the content. The synching device obtains from a server the content based on the received identifier, and plays the content in synchronization with the initiating device based on a time on the local clock and the local clock time to play the content. In some embodiments, the synching device also adjusts a clock speed of the local clock reference to control rate of playback of the content.

    Abstract: A method for device-to-device (D2D) communication includes determining that a first user equipment (UE) is out-of-coverage, the first UE having been previously in-coverage on a first cell. The method also includes starting a timer upon determining that the first UE is out-of-coverage and determining whether the first UE has returned to be in-coverage after starting the timer. Additionally, the method includes determining whether the timer has expired and communicating, by the first UE directly with a second UE, using out-of-coverage resources from the first cell when the timer has not expired and the first UE has not returned to be in-coverage.

  • Patent number: 10080225
    Abstract: A method for finding missing wireless nodes includes creating a repeating schedule of communication between a data concentrator and one or more nodes such that the data concentrator attempts to communicate with each of the one or more nodes at a discrete time slot for each node. The schedule of communication further includes at least one dead time slot such that the data concentrator does not attempt to communicate with any of the one or more nodes. The method also includes determining if each node has communicated with the data concentrator during a predetermined amount of discrete time slots, identifying each node that does not communicate with the data concentrator during the predetermined amount of discrete time slot as a missing node, and attempting to communicate with each missing node during the at least one dead time slot.

  • Patent number: 10069743
    Abstract: Capacity enhancement of a direct communication link using a variable redundancy delivery network. An estimated information rate between a source node and a terminal node may be partitioned into a first information rate provided via the direct communication link and a second information rate to be provided via the variable redundancy delivery network. One or more parameters of the variable redundancy delivery network may be calculated to provide the second information rate based on a non-uniform probability density of messages requested by the terminal node. Capacity and reliability of storage media devices in the variable redundancy delivery network may be traded off to provide the second information rate. The variable redundancy delivery network may implement various coding schemes and per-message coding rates that may be determined based on the non-uniform probability distribution of the source message library.

  • Patent number: 10064178
    Abstract: A method and system for dynamically reconfiguring an air interface that defines a continuum of frames each divided into a sequence of transmission time intervals (TTIs). The air interface is initially configured according to a first radio access technology (RAT). The base station then detects that at least a threshold extent of wireless client devices (WCDs) served by the base station on the air interface support operation according to a second RAT. And in response, the base station reconfigures the air interface so that certain TTIs per frame instead operate on a second RAT, with the remaining TTIs per frame still operating on the first RAT. The base station then serves WCDs that support the second RAT in the TTIs now configured according to the second RAT, while continuing to serve other WCDs according to the first RAT in the remaining TTIs configured according to the first RAT.

  • Patent number: 10044583
    Abstract: The invention provides a packet loss detection system that in near-real time detects packet loss and reports the identities of the lost packets. The identities of the lost packets are based on a set of packet-specific information that includes five-tuple flow information of the packet and other unique packet identifiers. A set of meters are placed at various vantage points in the network, each meter generates digests summarizing all the traffic passing through itself. The digests are exported to a collector/analyzer, which decodes the digests and performs an analysis to detect packet losses and to determine the lost packets' identities. The collector compares between the traffic digests generated by all the meters surrounding the segment. Mismatches among the digests indicate packet losses. The collector restores the identifiers of the lost packets by further decoding the mismatches between the digests.
