  • Patent number: 11496918
    Abstract: The disclosed method tests performance of a wireless telecommunication network. The method obtains from the network a network trace including packets exchanged among devices associated with the network. The method identifies packets within the network trace that match properties specified by the first and second tables, and obtains a call flow by chronologically mapping the identified packets, using the timestamps of the packets. The method determines whether a packet associated with the call flow matches the properties specified by the third table by comparing an IE value contained in the packet to the IE value included in the third table. Based on the determining, the method creates a call flow validation results report indicating whether the call flow satisfied the properties specified in the multiple tables. The call flow validation results report can indicate whether the network has passed the test, and/or whether the wireless network has any problematic components.

  • Patent number: 11496234
    Abstract: A control plane, available to all of the line cards in a system, is used to exchange time stamps to align the Time of Day counters in the master line cards. The master line cards are locked to a system clock distributed over the backplane by a timing card. The timing card is locked to timing of a slave line card that is synchronized with the grand master. Each master line card synchronizes updating its Time of Day counter based on a time stamp exchange and a local clock locked to the system clock and without the use of a 1 pulse per second signal.
