  • Patent number: 10257678
    Abstract: Data discovery for sensor data in an M2M network uses probabilistic models, such as Gaussian Mixing Models (GMMs) to represent attributes of the sensor data. The parameters of the probabilistic models can be provided to a discovery server (DS) that respond to queries concerning the sensor data. Since the parameters are compressed compared to the attributes of the sensor data itself, this can simplify the distribution of discovery data. A hierarchical arrangement of discovery servers can also be used with multiple levels of discovery servers where higher level discovery servers using more generic probabilistic models.

  • Patent number: 10257084
    Abstract: A network switch for implementing a Software Defined Network can include one or more memory resources storing a flow table and including a buffer. The network switch can receive and analyze data packets to generate a lookup key for each respective data packet. Using the lookup key, the network switch can perform a lookup in the flow table to determine a rule number for the respective data packet. Based on the rule number, the network switch can generate an event record for the respective data packet, and store the event record in a block of the buffer. When the block is full, the network switch can stream a set of event records from the buffer to a processing resource to enable the processing resource to update counter tables, external to the network switch, to implement the Software Defined Network.

  • Patent number: 10237797
    Abstract: A method, base station, and device perform an offload from a cellular RAN to a wireless LAN via a network selection operation to select an access network with which user terminal traffic is exchanged from the cellular RAN and the wireless LAN on the basis of parameters transmitted from a first base station to the user terminal. The parameters comprise at least one of a cellular signal strength threshold, a WLAN signal strength threshold, and a WLAN load threshold. After transmitting the parameters, the transmitted parameters are transferred from the first cellular base station to a second cellular base station, in response to the user terminal performing a handover from the first cellular base station to the second cellular base station. The transferred parameters enable the second cellular base station to determine whether there is a need for a change of configuration indicated by the transferred parameters.

  • Patent number: 10211905
    Abstract: According to an example, an AP may obtain an influence index for each of antenna combinations, and determine antenna combinations whose influence indices are smaller than or equal to a pre-determined threshold to be valid antenna combinations. The antenna combinations may include antennas not more than the maximum number of transmitting links supported by the AP. Each influence index may indicate the influence of an antenna combination on default antenna combinations of neighboring APs operating on the same channel. The AP may adjust the available transmission rates supported by the AP according to the largest number of antennas in the valid antenna combinations. The AP may select a transmission rate from the range for a frame, determine the number of antennas corresponding to the selected transmission rate, and select an antenna combination in which the number of antennas equals the determined number of antennas from the valid antenna combinations for transmitting the frame.

  • Patent number: 10159082
    Abstract: A distributed multi-core Long Term Evolution (LTE) data communication network serves User Equipment (UE) with various combinations of data services. A wireless base station receives core service data that individually associates the data services with the LTE network cores. The wireless base station transfers UE service data that indicates the data services to the UE. The wireless base station receives a UE service request from the UE identifying one of the data services and responsively selects an LTE network core based on the core service data. The wireless base station transfers a UE message that indicates the UE and the identified data service for delivery to the selected LTE network core. The selected LTE network core serves the identified data service to the UE.

  • Patent number: 10135577
    Abstract: A method for providing scalable service in a wireless communication system is disclosed. In this method, the transmitting side device transmits base layer signals and enhancement layer signals for one scalable service to a user equipment (UE) based on a HARQ (Hybrid Automatic Repeat Request) scheme. The base layer signals can be independently used at the UE without the enhancement layer signals. On the other hand, the enhancement layer signals cannot be used at the UE without the base layer signals. The transmitting side device also retransmits the base layer signals before a retransmission of the enhancement layer signals when there are both of the base layer signals and the enhancement layer signals to be retransmitted based on the HARQ scheme.

  • Patent number: 10135698
    Abstract: Resources (10, 20, 30) of a communications network (40), are used to provide services, some are superordinate services (A, B) which depend on contributory services (C, D, E, F). Key performance indicators R-KPI are received based on measurements from the resources, of contributory services contributing to a corresponding key performance indicator KPI of the corresponding superordinate service. A selection (120) is made of the received R-KPIs which correspond to the normal operation of the superordinate service and a characteristic division is generated (130) of relative contributions of the R-KPIs to the KPI of the corresponding superordinate service for the times that the service was operating normally. This can be used as a basis for identifying differences with other R-KPIs to determine anomalies in behavior of contributory services for root cause analysis or in managing the network. Convergence evaluation and validation can be used to improve accuracy of the characteristic division.
