  • Patent number: 10142434
    Abstract: A network optimizer receives, from a client device, a request for a network resource including a first version identifier identifying a first version of the network resource. A request for the network resource is transmitted to a far end network optimizer with a second version identifier that identifies a second version of the network resource. The network optimizer receives, from the far end network optimizer, a response that includes a first differences file that specifies first difference(s) between the second version with a most current version of the network resource. The response does not include the entire network resource. The network optimizer transmits to the client device a second response including a second differences file that identifies differences between the most current version of the network resource and the first version of the network resource causing the generation of an updated version of the network resource at the client device.

  • Patent number: 10135701
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies disclosed herein are directed to context-aware virtualized control decision support system (“DSS”) for providing quality of experience (“QoE”) assurance for Internet protocol (“IP”) streaming video services. A QoE assurance DSS can monitor QoE event and context data to be utilized for QoE assurance analytics, measure QoE performance, perform QoE assurance analytics, and determine whether the QoE assurance analytics indicate that the QoE has been degraded, and if so, construct a fault correlation information model to be utilized for root cause analysis to determine a root cause of the QoE being degraded. The QoE assurance DSS also can determine, based upon the fault correlation information model, whether the root cause of the QoE being degraded is due to a capacity reduction, and if so, the QoE assurance DSS can identify a new network resource for capacity reallocation to accommodate a virtual machine migration.

  • Patent number: 10122787
    Abstract: A method for the remote sharing of a computer office generated by an application executed in a server in response to commands issued by client terminals accessing this server via a telecommunication network, the commands of a client terminal being entered by means of an entry area termed the focus. The client terminals transmit, to the server, commands dedicated to office sharing, and entered by means of various focuses, in accordance with a graphics interface transmission protocol of the RUI type, standing for “Remote User Interface”, so that the server matches up, by means of the focuses, the commands received and the offices shared so as to transmit, in response to the commands from the terminals, a graphics interface representative of this office of the server by means of indications of the state of the pixels in this graphics interface in accordance with the RUI protocol.

  • Patent number: 10104165
    Abstract: Features are disclosed for sharing network connections among client devices. A client device may connect to an intermediary system and request content from content provider. The intermediary system may, in addition to opening a connection with the content provider and receiving the content on behalf of the client, create a request profile for the client device regarding likely future content requests. The request profile may be used to assign the client device to network comparing components that have available open network connections to one or more content providers from which the client device is likely to request content. In some cases, a gateway network computing component may route content requests to other network computing components which have available open network connections to content providers hosting requested content. Additionally, the number of active network computing components may be adjusted to increase connection sharing and reuse opportunities.

  • Patent number: 10104512
    Abstract: An indication is used to control how message service information is routed over different domains. For example, an access terminal may be configured with an indication that indicates that a message service is preferred to be invoked over an IP domain or that the message service is not be invoked over the IP domain. The access terminal then delivers message service information based on the value of the indication. In some cases, a network entity generates the indication and sends the indication to the access terminal. In some cases, a domain for delivery of message service information is selected based on a domain that was selected for particular type of traffic.

  • Patent number: 10103956
    Abstract: A network monitor is used to determine resource (e.g., CPU, memory, storage, or network) utilization of one or more virtual machines on one or more corresponding servers. Using resource utilization data for an original configuration of the virtual machines on the servers, the described system and methods simulate reconfigurations of various VMs on servers, determines resource utilization of the simulated reconfigurations, and proposes a reconfiguration that results in lower resource utilization across the one or more corresponding servers.

  • Patent number: 10097642
    Abstract: Logical scalable units (LSU) can be used within a single network data center to provide stateful scalability. However, LSUs are not suitable for operating across multiple network data centers in order to provide geographical redundancy in active-active scenarios while providing high availability. This is because the latencies associated with replicating full session information are unacceptably slow. An additional component in the LSU (known as an LSU Frontend) can be used to replicate a small subset of session information between LSUs. This subset of session information may be enough to enable LSUs to process requests in an acceptable way rather than outright failing. This may be particularly advantageous in scenarios where the requests relate to Voice over LTE calls, because outright failure is very perceivable to subscribers, and it causes resource leakage within the telecommunications network.

  • Patent number: 10097584
    Abstract: Methods, systems, computer-readable media, and apparatuses for providing a managed browser are presented. In various embodiments, a computing device may load a managed browser. The managed browser may, for instance, be configured to provide a managed mode in which one or more policies are applied to the managed browser, and an unmanaged mode in which such policies might not be applied and/or in which the browser might not be managed by at least one device manager agent running on the computing device. Based on device state information and/or one or more policies, the managed browser may switch between the managed mode and the unmanaged mode, and the managed browser may provide various functionalities, which may include selectively providing access to enterprise resources, based on such state information and/or the one or more policies.

  • Patent number: 10091015
    Abstract: A method for mapping and controlling network-enabled appliances with a control device may comprise collecting spatial information in three dimensions as at least one sensor of the control device is moved within an environment, receiving registration signals from network-enabled appliances in the environment, and associating each network-enabled appliance with a respective 3D position in the environment based on the spatial information. The method may include generating a digital map of the environment from the spatial information and placing a representation of each network-enabled appliance on the digital map based on the respective 3D position. The method may also include generating a spatially aware rule set that applies to one or more rooms within the environment. The method may also include detecting a trigger event, and in response to the trigger event, commanding the network-enabled appliances according to the spatially aware rule set.

  • Patent number: 10061600
    Abstract: A control component of a computing environment activates a virtual adapter hosted on a physical adapter of a host system of the computing environment. The virtual adapter is for use by a guest of the host system in performing data input and output. The activating activates the virtual adapter absent involvement of the guest. Based on activating the virtual adapter, the control component obtains configuration information of the activated virtual adapter from the physical adapter, the configuration information generated based on the activating. The control component ascertains a configuration of the activated virtual adapter based on the obtained configuration information.
