  • Patent number: 11570077
    Abstract: An example network orchestrator of a SDN is configured to receive, based on a user input, credentials associated with a traffic flow. Based on the credentials, it is determined whether the traffic flow is received at an ingress overlay network node. Route information and encapsulation information of the traffic flow is extracted from the ingress overlay network node. A first set of underlay network nodes each of which is a potential next hop for the traffic flow is identified. It is determined, based on the encapsulation information, whether the traffic flow is received by one of the first set of underlay network nodes. It is determined whether the traffic flow is received at an egress overlay network node from one of the first. A network trace of the traffic flow is determined based on the determinations of whether the traffic flow is received at the ingress overlay network node, one of the first set of underlay network nodes, and the egress overlay network node.

  • Patent number: 11546951
    Abstract: A method for causing an audio/video (A/V) recording and communication device to enter a setup mode involves detecting motion by one or more sensors of the A/V recording and communication device, while the A/V recording and communication device is disconnected from a local network. The method also involves entering, by the A/V recording and communication device, a setup mode to initiate a setup procedure after the detected motion. The setup procedure allows the A/V recording and communication device to wirelessly connect to a client device. The method further involves determining whether the client device connects to the A/V recording and communication device within a predetermined timeout period. Additionally, the method involves exiting the setup mode when the A/V recording and communication device does not connect to the client device within the predetermined timeout period.

  • Patent number: 11546227
    Abstract: Present technology is directed to preferred processing and the verification of diagnostic signatures for a plurality of network defect. The disclosed optimization process is based on expressing each Diagnostic Signature as a minimal sum of product Boolean function of associated network commands, followed by ranking of each command reference in the product terms of the Boolean expression as well as each Boolean product terms of the SOP Boolean expressions, and constructing a decision tree based on the provided rankings to thereby determine a minimum set of commands along with an preferred command dispatch sequence for evaluating a Diagnostic Signature. Further aspects include the translation of both the optimization computation (interpretation of network conditions associated with a network defect) and the computed workflow (dispatch of the command) into a series of declarative rules that can be processed by a machine reasoning engine to thereby automate the optimization process.

  • Patent number: 11539842
    Abstract: Methods and systems are disclosed for information streaming to a user interface via a networked contact center. In one example, a system includes communications computer circuitry to receive, at a networked contact center, a request to stream information to a user interface, the user interface being associated with the networked contact center and an agent to be contacted by others. Information streaming circuitry streams the requested information and to open a network connection between the user interface and a server of a networked contact center, and the information streaming circuitry keeps the network connection between the user interface and the server open as a persistent network connection to the user interface. The communications computer circuitry also pushes one or more events to the user interface via the persistent network connection to cause a change in the user interface without further network requests to the server from the user interface.

  • Patent number: 11522831
    Abstract: An IoT service of a provider network may be used to increase the edge device address space while complying with a radio communication protocol. This may allow a service provider to manage a much larger number of client devices that use a particular radio communication protocol that specifies a limited address space (e.g., LoRaWAN). When the IoT service receives a join request via a private gateway of the client network, the service determines, based on the private gateway ID, the client ID of the client that owns the private gateway/client network. The service may generate a unique internal ID for the edge device by combining the client ID with an assigned device ID. The internal ID identifies the edge device as an activated device of the edge network.

  • Patent number: 11483202
    Abstract: A method for automatically configuring router and a routing system are provided. The method is operated in a routing system including a router, a user equipment and an analysis platform, and the method includes the following steps. The router collects related data used by the user equipment to connect to the Internet, and stores the data in a memory. When each time the router determining that a first event meets a first preset condition, the router uploads the data to the analysis platform. The analysis platform uses a computational model to analyze the data, and stores an analysis result in the analysis platform. When the analysis platform each time determines that a second event meets a second preset condition, the analysis platform forms a configuration file, and loads the configuration file into the router, so that the router performs a configuration work according to the configuration file.
