  • Patent number: 10601692
    Abstract: Integrating a further communication bridge into a running data processing system. The data processing system includes a communication client running a first operating system having no own communication stack and at least a first communication bridge running a second operating system having an own communication stack. The first communication bridge is configured as a master communication bridge. The further communication bridge announces itself as a slave communication bridge at an announcement time. The master communication bridge executes a quiesce process on the network adapter and on the API of the communication client when there are no data packets in the queue with a sending time earlier than the announcement time. The master communication bridge extracts the state of its communication stack and sends it to the further communication bridge. The master communication bridge resumes the network adapter and the API.

  • Patent number: 10602427
    Abstract: Infrastructure-based client management uses synthesized beacon reports to effect client association with APs in a wireless digital network. Beacon reports are synthesized by having a plurality of APs in the network collect client reports and send those reports to a report process on the network. The report process accumulates client reports from the plurality of APs and selects one or more candidate APs to support a client. Selection may be made on reported SNR, AP loading, channel loading, AP characteristics, or a combination. The report process may produce blacklists and optionally whitelists for use by APs to use in processing client probe and connection requests.
