  • Patent number: 10666612
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable media for creating service chains for inter-cloud traffic. In some examples, a system receives domain name system (DNS) queries associated with cloud domains and collects DNS information associated the cloud domains. The system spoofs DNS entries defining a subset of IPs for each cloud domain. Based on the spoofed DNS entries, the system creates IP-to-domain mappings associating each cloud domain with a respective IP from the subset of IPs. Based on the IP-to-domain mappings, the system programs different service chains for traffic between a private network and respective cloud domains. The system routes, through the respective service chain, traffic having a source associated with the private network and a destination matching the IP in the respective IP-to-domain mapping.

  • Patent number: 10652803
    Abstract: A method of enabling at least some of plurality of nodes to join a wireless network, where each operates according to a wireless networking protocol and each is a component of a lighting system. An initiating unit wirelessly broadcasts a discovery request using a protocol of the network, according to which each other node only responds to the discovery request as broadcast from the initiating unit on condition of being within a predetermined range. Hence one or more in-range nodes each respond to the discovery request from the initiating unit and thereby join the network, while one or more out-of-range nodes do not respond. One or more of the in-range nodes also act as relaying nodes, to re-broadcast the discovery request for receipt by one or more of the out-of-range nodes. One or more of the out-of-range nodes respond to the re-broadcast discovery requests, thereby joining the wireless network.

  • Patent number: 10631283
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for utilizing multiple carriers are disclosed. A wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) capable of receiving on a single downlink carrier at a time may tune the receiver to one downlink carrier and switch the downlink carrier in accordance with a configured pattern. The WTRU may switch the carrier from an anchor carrier to a non-anchor carrier at a high speed shared control channel (HS-SCCH) sub-frame boundary, and switches back at an end of a subsequent high speed physical downlink shared channel (HS-PDSCH) subframe. The WTRU may switch the carrier at an HS-PDSCH sub-frame boundary. A WTRU capable of receiving on multiple downlink carriers simultaneously may tune the receiver to an anchor carrier and a supplementary carrier, and switch the supplementary carrier to another carrier based on a carrier switching order. The carrier switching order may be received via an HS-SCCH or via layer 2 signaling.

  • Patent number: 10594624
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for using opportunistically delayed delivery of content to address sub-optimal bandwidth resource usage in network infrastructures that allow subscribers to share forward link resources. According to some embodiments, content is identified as delayable and assigned to a delaycast queue and/or service flow. For example, a server system of a satellite communications system identifies content that can be delayed to exploit future excess link capacity through multicasting and to exploit subscriber-side storage resources. Some implementations attempt to exploit any excess link resources at any time, while others exploit unused bandwidth only during certain times or when a certain threshold of resources is available. Various embodiments also provide content scoring and/or other prioritization techniques for optimizing exploitation of the delaycast queue.
