  • Patent number: 10148793
    Abstract: A client computer requests a resource from an ISP/OSP. The ISP/OSP maintains multiple instances of the resource. In deciding to which instance of the resource to route the client computer, a resource selection server takes network routability information into account. Geographic proximity, resource utilization, network utilization, and/or maintenance of peering agreements may also be taken into account in selecting the instance of the resource.

  • Patent number: 10135599
    Abstract: Frequency domain compression of fronthaul interface for transporting frequency domain data over Ethernet includes applying Inverse Discrete Fourier Transform to frequency domain data contained in a frequency bandwidth to generate a time domain output signal in a time domain. The time domain output signal is compressed to generate a compressed time domain output signal. The compressed time domain output signal is transmitted over a fronthaul interface to a remote unit. The compressed time domain output signal is decompressable at the remote unit to generate a decompressed time domain output signal. Discreet Fourier Transform is applied to the decompressed time domain output signal at the remote unit to recover the frequency domain data.

  • Patent number: 10116790
    Abstract: According to embodiments of the present invention, a method for communicating data associated with a user of a voice device is disclosed. A server receives a first identifier associated with a first device, the first device comprising one of the voice device and the data device. The server determines a second identifier associated with a second device based on the first identifier, the second device comprising the other one of the voice device and the data device. The server then establishes a connection with the second device using the second identifier and communicates data associated with the user of the voice device between the server and the data device. The communicated data can represent a user identifier (such as a user identifier stored on a smart card, the user's iris scan, the user's fingerprint scan and the like).

  • Patent number: 10050855
    Abstract: A first peer, of a plurality of peers, may receive a packet directed to a network address. The network address may identify a tunnel endpoint of a tunnel via which traffic, associated with a multi-homed client, is transferred. The multi-homed client may be connected to each peer of the plurality of peers. The first peer may identify the packet as being associated with the multi-homed client. The first peer may update first information, associated with the tunnel, based on identifying the packet as being associated with the multi-homed client. The first peer may provide the packet to a second peer of the plurality of peers. The second peer may receive the packet and may update second information, associated with the tunnel, based on receiving the packet provided by the first peer. The first information and the second information may be updated to indicate an operational status of the tunnel.

  • Patent number: 10033547
    Abstract: A method, a device, and a system for controlling tunnel identifier allocation are provided. The method includes: determining whether a type of a current procedure allows a Serving Gateway (SGW) to change a Tunnel Endpoint Identifier (TEID) and/or an Internet Protocol (IP) address (S110); and sending an modify bearer request message to the SGW, in which the modify bearer request message is used for notifying the SGW of whether the SGW is allowed to change the TEID and/or the IP address (S120). The loss of service data packets of a user or the service interruption caused by that the SGW modifies the TEID and/or the IP address is avoided.

  • Patent number: 10027620
    Abstract: Global identifiers can be dialed from anywhere in the world. The present application relates to a call processing telecommunication system and methods thereof in a wireless network for connecting communication devices. The integrated system can resolve issues with global identification using internal identifiers. In one illustrative embodiment, the global identifiers can be registered and mapped to an internal number such that the global numbers can be used to contact individuals. When a call is placed by a communication device, the internal identifier of the calling device can be tied back to the global identifier, which then provides access to the IP address of the VoIP client to complete the call. For incoming calls, the global identifiers can be translated into an internal identifier to route the call through the network.

  • Patent number: 9973349
    Abstract: An encapsulation address of a first switching device is set so as to be different only in a mask bit in comparison with that of a second switching device. A learning information control unit of a third switching device does not learn the correspondence relation between a source customer address and a source encapsulation address in a first case and a second case. The first case corresponds to a case in which an encapsulated frame is received at an upper-link port and an encapsulation address corresponding to the source customer address is acquired from an address table. The second case corresponds to a case in which a difference between the source encapsulation address and the encapsulation address acquired from the address table lies only in the mask bit.
