  • Patent number: 11563856
    Abstract: An impact of a delay time on a conversation is reduced. A voice packet is transmitted to a distribution server. A user is notified of being in a wait time from when transmission of the voice packet stops until when voice packet transmission becomes available next. The wait time is calculated on the basis of a first delay time that is a delay time between a local terminal and the distribution server and a second delay time that is the maximum delay time among delay times between a plurality of terminals including the local terminal and the distribution server. The user can easily know the speaking timing from the local terminal, and speech from the local terminal and speech from another terminal can be made not to mix.

  • Patent number: 11558775
    Abstract: A network device may receive packets and may calculate, during a time interval, an arrival rate and a departure rate, of the packets, at one of multiple virtual output queues. The network device may calculate a current oversubscription factor based on the arrival rate and the departure rate, and may calculate a target oversubscription factor based on an average of previous oversubscription factors associated with the multiple virtual output queues. The network device may determine whether a difference exists between the target oversubscription factor and the current oversubscription factor and may calculate, when the difference exists, a scale factor based on the current oversubscription factor and the target oversubscription factor. The network device may calculate new scheduling weights based on prior scheduling weights and the scale factor, and may process packets received by the multiple virtual output queues based on the new scheduling weights.

  • Patent number: 11553091
    Abstract: A server is configured to provide data communications services to a plurality of endpoint devices. Geolocation information identifying a first geographic location of the particular endpoint device is received at the server and from an application running on an endpoint device. A second geographic location for an IP address is compared to the first geographic location. In response to a mismatch between the compared geographic locations, a location database is modified to include an entry specifying that the particular endpoint device is located at the first geographic location. For an outgoing telephone call from the endpoint device, the modified entry is used to select a telephone carrier. The outgoing telephone call is routed using the selected telephone carrier.
