  • Patent number: 10742537
    Abstract: Various systems and methods for using strict path forwarding. For example, one method involves receiving an advertisement at a node. The advertisement includes a segment identifier (SID). In response to receiving the advertisement, the node determines whether the SID is a strict SID or not. If the SID is a strict SID, the node generates information, such as forwarding information that indicates how to forward packets along a strict shortest path corresponding to the strict SID.

  • Patent number: 10735236
    Abstract: A system includes a modulator to modulate data using Quadrature Phase Shift Keying modulation and dual sub-carrier modulation to generate modulated symbols for transmission on a plurality of subcarriers. A repetition module repeats the modulated symbols from a first half of the plurality of subcarriers to a second half of the plurality of subcarriers. A phase rotation module rotates phase of the modulated symbols on selected subcarriers of the second half of the plurality of subcarriers. The selected subcarriers include all of the second half of the plurality of subcarriers. The phase rotation module rotates the phase of the modulated symbols on all of the second half of the plurality of subcarriers to conjugate the modulated symbols on all of the second half of the plurality of subcarriers relative to corresponding modulated symbols on all of the first half of the plurality of subcarriers.

  • Patent number: 10727966
    Abstract: In various implementations, provided are techniques for distributing network time across a network using multiple grand masters (e.g., master time keepers). These techniques include having multiple grand masters simultaneously providing time to the network. Simultaneous means that all the grand masters are active at the same time, and none are designated as backups. In various implementations, the nodes in the network can simultaneously synchronize to network times provided by more than grand masters so that the nodes can obtain more than one network time. Using these multiple network times, nodes configured as clients can determine one network time. The client devices can then use the single network time in applications that require a time.

A User Equipment (UE) receives a first radio signal, then detects a low-latency signaling in L1 time intervals respectively, and transmits first HARQ-ACK information. The low-latency signaling includes a first field, and the first field is used for determining a relationship between a low-latency HARQ-ACK bit group and a first HARQ-ACK bit group. The first HARQ-ACK information includes part or all of HARQ-ACK bits in the first HARQ-ACK bit group. Through the design of the first field, the information in the first HARQ-ACK bit group can be put into the low-latency HARQ-ACK bit group to transmit, thereby optimizing the transmission of the Uplink Control Information (UCI) for HARQ-ACK, reducing the resource overhead and power overhead for the transmission of the UCI, and improving the overall system performance and spectrum efficiency.

  • Patent number: 10659953
    Abstract: Embodiments herein describe pruning a neighbor list sent to a client device using a predefined assignment corresponding to an AP or the client device which can reduce the time required for the client device to roam between APs in a WLAN deployment. The pruned neighbor list serves as a Wi-Fi client steering mechanism to affect which AP the client device chooses when roaming. In one embodiment, a controller uses information regarding fabric nodes in the backend infrastructure to prune the neighbor list to include only the APs that are assigned to the same fabric node as the current AP. In another embodiment, the controller considers a service provider corresponding to the client device when pruning the neighbor lists. The list may include only the neighboring APs assigned to provide Wi-Fi access for the same service provider.
