  • Patent number: 10536919
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are described for processing service layer detach commands and attach notifications. A services capability server (SCS) may request a core network to perform a network initiated detach of a device. This procedure may be used when the SCS knows that the device will not be needed for a long time or when the SCS detects some event that may warrant a detach, (e.g., theft, disallowed location, integrity validation failure). The SCS may be asked if the device may be allowed to attach at this time. If the SCS indicates that the attach may be rejected, the device may not be allowed to attach until a later time, thus avoiding additional activity on control and user planes. The SCS may be informed when a device is attached based on various subscription fields stored in a home subscriber server (HSS).

  • Patent number: 10523547
    Abstract: A method for multiple BFD session optimization includes receiving a request for establishing a BFD session and in response, establishing a first BFD session for monitoring a link to a remote node over a first network interface. The type of the first BFD session is set to normal. BFD control packets are exchanged with the remote node as part of the first session for monitoring status of link to the remote node. A request for establishing a second BFD session to monitor the status of the same link is received. In response, the type of the first BFD session is changed to master. A second BFD session is established, and the type of the second BFD session is set to slave. For the second BFD session, BFD session state is obtained from the first BFD session without exchanging BFD control packets for the second BFD session with the remote node.

  • Patent number: 10523457
    Abstract: A network communication method, a system and a controller of PCIe and Ethernet hybrid networks are provided. In one example of the network communication method, a packet is transmitted or received via a network interface (NIC). The packet is transmitted via an Ethernet over PCIe (EoP) port by adopting a PCIe based EoP architecture based on a PCIe bus for an intra-rack transmission, and the packet is transmitted via an Ethernet port for an inter-rack transmission. If the transmitted packet belongs to a broadcast packet, the network interface receiving the packet discards the packet or transmits the packet to the controller without re-broadcasting the packet again.

    Abstract: A wireless device receives from a base station, one or more messages indicating a first scheduling request (SR) resource corresponding to a first logical channel corresponding to one or more first transmission durations up to a first value. A first SR is triggered in response to data becoming available to the first logical channel. A second SR is triggered in response to data becoming available to a second logical channel. When no valid SR resource being configured for the second SR: a random access procedure is initiated; the second SR is canceled, and the first SR is kept pending. The first SR is transmitted to the base station via the first SR resource in response to the triggering of the first SR. An uplink grant for transmission of one or more transport blocks in a transmission duration up to the first value is received from the base station.
