  • Patent number: 10355955
    Abstract: The present disclosure involves systems and computer implemented methods for implementing a resource allocation and adjusting resource usage and spending based on information received from a plurality of network-connected devices. One example method includes identifying a new connected device replacing an existing device associated with a resource allocation, the resource allocation defining an expected resource usage for a plurality of devices (including the existing device), obtaining historical resource usage information associated with the existing device, identifying the existing device's operational parameters, and determining an expected resource usage for the new connected device after replacement. A change in the expected resource usage in the resource allocation is calculated based on the obtained historical resource usage information associated with the existing device and the expected resource usage amount for the new connected device.

  • Patent number: 10341075
    Abstract: The present document relates to a method for transmitting an acknowledgement/negative acknowledgement (ACK/NACK) signal for transmission data of a plurality of stations (STAs) by an access point (AP) in a wireless LAN (WLAN) system, and an apparatus therefor. To this end, the AP transmits a trigger frame to the plurality of STAs, and on receiving data from the plurality of STAs in response to the trigger frame, transmits ACK/NACK signals for the data received from the plurality of STAs through a multiuser block ACK frame (M-BA frame). Here, the M-BA frame includes ACK/NACK signals for STAs, the number of which is determined so as not to exceed a specific transmission unit time, among the ACK/NACK signals for the plurality of STAs, and the AP additionally transmits ACK/NACK signals to one or more STAs, to which ACK/NACK signals have not been transmitted through the M-BA, among the plurality of STAs.

  • Patent number: 10333658
    Abstract: Hybrid Automatic Repeat Request (HARQ) operation in an asymmetric multicarrier communication network environment is performed, in one embodiment, by receiving resource allocation information from a base station, transmitting the HARQ packet to the base station in a transmit time interval (TTI) corresponding a first or second partition of an uplink allocation interval on a second carrier, and receiving HARQ feedback information corresponding to a previous HARQ packet transmission. A TTI in a subsequent uplink allocation interval is determined based on the partition of the uplink allocation interval in which the HARQ packet is transmitted if the HARQ feedback information indicates negative acknowledgement. The HARQ packet is transmitted to the base station in the determined transmit time interval of the subsequent uplink allocation interval on the second carrier.

  • Patent number: 10320668
    Abstract: Systems and methods for supporting unique multicast forwarding across multiple connected subnets in a high performance computing environment. In accordance with an embodiment, by enforcing that incoming (i.e., incoming on a router port of a subnet) multicast packets have SGIDs (source global identifiers) that correspond to a restricted set of source subnet numbers when entering the ingress router ports to a local subnet, it is possible to ensure that multicast packets sent from one subnet are never returned to the same subnet through a different set of connected router ports (i.e., avoid looping multicast packets).

  • Patent number: 10314066
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices are described for wireless communications. A network may employ additional contention based parameters to support MU transmissions and to communicate to other devices a duration that protects MU transmission. For example, a first device may transmit a first message to reserve a subband of shared spectrum. The first message may be addressed to multiple devices and may indicate a channel access deferral duration to other devices within transmission range. The non-addressed devices may refrain from accessing the channel for an indicated duration. The addressed devices that receive the first message may respond to the first message with a second message, which may also be used to reserve the channel. The second message may additionally be used to identify those devices that received the first message. The first device may generate a trigger message based on the received second messages.
