  • Patent number: 11140122
    Abstract: In certain embodiments, a communication (comm) network has interconnected comm systems and a mapping engine, each comm system having one or more Layer 1 (L1) components physically connected to one or more Layer 2 (L2) components, wherein components are physically connected to L1 components of different comm systems. Logical connections between the L2 components of the different comm systems are determined using a link-layer discovery process (LLDP), and physical connections between the L1 and L2 components of each comm system are determined using LLDP snooping. The mapping engine queries the L2 components for LLDP results and the L1 components for LLDP snooping results and generates end-to-end mappings for circuits between the L2 components of the different comm systems, where the end-to-end mappings are represented in a circuit inventory database that can be accessed to avoid system outages when the network is modified.

  • Patent number: 11128491
    Abstract: A GRE tunnel is configured between multiple computing devices of a distributed cloud computing network and a single origin router of the origin network. The GRE tunnel has a first GRE endpoint that has an IP address that is shared among the computing devices of the distribute cloud computing network and a second GRE endpoint that has a publicly routable IP address of the origin router. A first computing device receives an IP packet from a client that is destined to an origin server. The first computing device processes the received IP packet and encapsulates the IP packet inside an outer packet to generate a GRE encapsulated packet whose source address is the first GRE endpoint and the destination address is the second GRE endpoint. The GRE encapsulated packet is transmitted over the GRE tunnel to the single origin router.

  • Patent number: 11108703
    Abstract: Techniques for consistent resource visibility during inter-cellular migrations using targeted pairwise scatter-gather techniques are described. For a paginated request to describe resources existing in cells of a provider network that match one or more criteria, a set of candidate cells having, or likely to have, resources of interest that match the one or more criteria are identified. Pairs of the candidate cells that are determined to be involved in a migration are jointly queried according to a scatter-gather type approach and aggregated via a union technique to remove duplicate resource entries. Other cells not involved in a resource migration are independently queried.

  • Patent number: 11075959
    Abstract: A system includes a security controller located within a central-zone in communication with a provisioned agent operating on an edge-zone device. The security controller may implement controller-blind security control on the edge-zone device by making security authorization determinations using a secure-operation confidence analysis performed by the provisioned agent. The provisioned agent, operating within the edge-zone, may have access to un-sanitized data, which may be unavailable to the security controller in the central-zone. The security controller may provide condition-descriptors via a secure-operation confidence assignment matrix. Using the condition-descriptors, the provisioned agent determine feedback, which may include a secure-operation confidence coefficient, based on the un-sanitized data to which the security controller is blind.

  • Patent number: 11070504
    Abstract: Routing of communications to group member(s) where group membership is identified by physical status. A computing system detects a communication that identifies targets of the communication at least in part by physical status. The system responds by identifying at least partial membership in a group that is identified by the physical status identified in the communication, and then dispatching the communication to at least one member of the members of that group. The identity of the members of the group may change dynamically as the physical status of particular physical entities changes over time. Accordingly, a user may communicate to individuals based on physical status, rather than identify any particular individual or status group. The communication may be directed to all members of the group. Alternatively, the communication may be initially directed towards a subset of the group, with the communication being conditionally later broadened.

  • Patent number: 11063905
    Abstract: Systems and methods for detecting Internet services by a network policy controller are provided. According to one embodiment, a network controller maintains an Internet service database (ISDB) in which multiple Internet services and corresponding protocols, port numbers, Internet Protocol (IP) address ranges and singularity levels of the IP ranges are stored. The network policy controller intercepts network traffic and detects the Internet service of the network traffic. If an IP address of the network traffic falls in an IP range with highest singularity level and the protocol type, port number of the network traffic are matched in the ISDB, the corresponding Internet service is identified as the Internet service of the network traffic. The network policy controller further controls transmission of the network traffic based on the Internet service.

  • Patent number: 11064032
    Abstract: A network device has a Local Area Network (LAN) port and several Wide Area Network (WAN) ports. The network device detects a computing device that is connected to the LAN port initiating establishment of a TCP connection. The network device creates a TCP socket that establishes the TCP connection with the computing device and inspects TCP packets on the TCP connection to identify a cloud application associated with the TCP packets. The network device creates another TCP socket that establishes a TCP connection to the identified cloud application by way of a WAN port that is designated to be an output port for the identified cloud application. A routing path is created between the LAN port and the designated WAN port. Subsequent TCP packets originated by the computing device for the identified cloud application are forwarded along the routing path.

  • Patent number: 11019374
    Abstract: In various embodiments, an interpolation-based encoding application encodes a first subsequence included in a media title at each encoding point included in a first set of encoding points to generate encoded subsequences. Subsequently, the interpolation-based encoding application performs interpolation operation(s) based on the encoded subsequences to estimate a first media metric value associated with a first encoding point that is not included in the first set of encoding points. The interpolation-based encoding application then generates an encoding recipe based on the encoded subsequences and the first media metric value. The encoding recipe specifies a different encoding point for each subsequence included in the media title. After determining that the encoding recipe specifies the first encoding point for the first subsequence, the interpolation-based encoding application encodes the first subsequence at the first encoding point to generate at least a portion of an encoded version of the media title.
