  • Patent number: 12009999
    Abstract: A system and method for providing a service management engine for use with a cloud computing environment. In accordance with an embodiment, enterprise software applications (e.g., Fusion Middleware applications) can be instantiated as services within a cloud platform, where they are then made accessible by other (e.g., customer) applications. In an embodiment, a service management engine (SME), in communication with an orchestration engine, can be used to provision services as one or more different service types, according to a service definition package (SDP). Service types can be instantiated according to the configuration of the cloud platform itself, and the contents of the SDP, including discovering, provisioning, and associating service types with system resources, to address different customer requirements.

  • Patent number: 12003389
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to measuring and managing data traffic in one or more networks. In some embodiments, a monitor may measure the traffic at one or more locations within the network(s) or devices associated therewith to determine whether the traffic exceeds a threshold. When the traffic exceeds the threshold, one or more actions may be taken, such as issuing or transmitting a command or directive. The command or directive may advise a device or an application to throttle or reduce an input or stimulus responsible for generating the traffic. In some embodiments, a throttling may be effectuated to reduce the data traffic.

  • Patent number: 11984998
    Abstract: Techniques for selective video conference segmentation are described and are implementable in a video conference setting. The described implementations enable control over segments of video content that are viewable by a given participant in a video conference. For instance, segments of video content are generated that represent spatial portions of video content captured by a host device. The segments can be configured in a variety of ways for inclusion in one or more video streams. The video streams can be communicated to different participants within the video conference, for instance based on a status of a given participant, thus providing different fields of view to different participants.

  • Patent number: 11838345
    Abstract: Various embodiments herein provide techniques for Session Description Protocol (SDP)-based signaling of camera calibration parameters for multiple video streams. In embodiments, a device may receive an SDP attribute to indicate that a bitstream included in a real-time transport protocol (RTP)-based media stream includes camera calibration parameters. The device may obtain the camera calibration parameters based on the SDP attribute, and process the RTP-based media stream based on the camera calibration parameters. In embodiments, the camera calibration parameters may be used to stitch together (e.g., align and/or synchronize) the multiple video streams. In embodiments, the stitched video streams may form an immersive video content (e.g., 360-degree video content). Other embodiments may be described and claimed.
