  • Patent number: 11996978
    Abstract: A device binding method is provided. The method includes: a user terminal collects a signal at a collection position, generates a first signal fingerprint, and sends the first signal fingerprint and a corresponding first account to a server. An intelligent terminal collects a signal at a set position, generates a second signal fingerprint, and sends the second signal fingerprint and a corresponding device identifier of the intelligent terminal to the server. The server determines that the second signal fingerprint matches the first signal fingerprint, to determine that the second signal fingerprint corresponds to the first account. The server binds the intelligent terminal to the first account based on a correspondence between the second signal fingerprint and the device identifier of the intelligent terminal.

  • Patent number: 11966744
    Abstract: A system and method may manage traffic to software applications that ingest operations into an asynchronous queue when those operations are required to execute in a synchronous manner. An identifier may be retrieved from data corresponding to each client operation. A process distribution module may be placed in front of the two incompatible systems/applications to inspect each data payload and intelligently distribute the transactions to each instance based on a well-defined algorithm (e.g., even/odd, last digit, etc.). Synchronous execution may then occur according to a timestamp for each operation.

  • Patent number: 11922413
    Abstract: Embodiments disclosed are directed to ensuring resource compliance within a cloud-based environment. The embodiments include steps for performing both pre-provisioning and post-provisioning checks of resources, such as network protocols, prior to and after their deployment within the cloud-based environment. These steps include using bitemporal analysis to determine the impact of deploying resources within the environment through the use of multiple execution timelines where the impact of deploying a resource may be evaluated on an alternative timeline that does not change the current resource scope of the cloud-based environment. The analysis may further include tracking the impact of the resource after it has been deployed to ensure resource compliance.

  • Patent number: 11909799
    Abstract: A media playback apparatus and a method including a system for preventing a playback delay are provided. The media playback apparatus may include a delay detecting module to detect a playback delay. The playback delay detection may determine a delay caused by a network, decoding and rendering through a single measurement. When the playback delay occurs, it may be possible to eliminate the playback delay by requesting that a server provide media data having a changed profile. Since the playback delay can be determined through a single measurement of a plurality of playback delay factors, it may be possible to simply and stably perform media playback in a manner suitable for a non-plug-in environment.

  • Patent number: 11902104
    Abstract: A data-centric network and non-Real-Time (RT) RAN Intelligence Controller (RIC) architecture are described. The data-centric network architecture provides data plane functions (DPFs) that serve as a shared database for control functions, user functions and management functions for data plane resources in a network. The DPFs interact with control plane functions, user plane functions, management plane functions, compute plane functions, network exposure functions, and application functions of the NR network via a service interface. The non-RT RIC provides functions via rApps, manages the rApps, performs conflict mitigation and security functions, monitors machine learning (ML) performance, provides a ML model catalog that contains ML model information, provides interface terminations and stores ML data and Near-RT RIC related information in a database. An ML training host trains and evaluates ML models in the catalog, obtains training and testing data from the database, and retrains and updates the ML models.
