  • Patent number: 10805215
    Abstract: Presented herein are techniques for monitoring packets in a container networking environment. A method includes receiving a packet at a network node, the packet having been routed to the network node in accordance with instructions from a container orchestration system, inserting an additional field in the packet that is configured to record a path of the packet within a first POD of the host device that includes at least one container, forwarding the packet to the first POD of the host device in accordance with the instructions from the container orchestration system, updating the additional field with container networking path information as the packet transits the first POD and the at least one container therein, storing the container path information in an analytics node of the network node, removing the additional field from the packet, and transmitting the packet from the network node to the network.

  • Patent number: 10785697
    Abstract: In conventional MANETs, the functions of network discovery, route generation, and packets forwarding are performed at each node of the network. As a result, achieving routing convergence between all of the devices can be very time and resource intensive as no single node has a complete topology of the network. In contrast, the disclosed MANET with SDN architecture performs network discovery and route generation at centralized location, and packets forwarding is done separately at the node level. This new architecture allows the disclosed MANET to quickly adjust network operating characteristics whenever there is a change in the network topology.

  • Patent number: 10764889
    Abstract: A communication system capable of a stable communication operation between a base station device and a communication terminal device. A UE is configured to communicate with an MeNB directly or through a SeNB. The UE is set to transmit, to the MeNB and the SeNB, transmission data addressed to the MeNB when an amount of the transmission data exceeds a predetermined threshold. The UE is set to transmit the transmission data not to the SeNB but to the MeNB when the amount is smaller than or equal to the threshold. The threshold is changed so that the transmission data is transmitted to the MeNB and the SeNB, when the SeNB is set to communicate with the UE with radio resources periodically allocated and the amount of the transmission data is smaller than or equal to the threshold.

  • Patent number: 10715422
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a parent network device, operating according to a first Trickle operation using a first selected minimum contention interval, responds to detecting a loss of attached child network devices by starting a second Trickle operation using a second selected minimum contention interval. The second Trickle operation includes maintaining the second selected minimum contention interval for subsequent iterations of the second Trickle operation. The parent network device initiates an accelerated transmission rate of the advertisement message that is faster than the first and second Trickle operations (using a third selected minimum contention interval less than the first minimum contention interval) in response to receiving a message from one of the lost child network devices, and resumes the first Trickle operation upon recovery of all the lost child network devices.

  • Patent number: 10694519
    Abstract: Time-division duplexing (TDD) in distributed communications systems, including distributed antenna systems (DASs) is disclosed. In one embodiment, a control circuit is provided and configured to control the TDD transmit mode of a DAS to control the allocation of time slots for uplink and downlink communications signal distribution in respective uplink path(s) and downlink path(s). The control circuit includes separate power detectors configured to detect either a transmit power level in a downlink path or a receive power level in an uplink path. If the transmit power detected in the downlink path is greater than receive power detected in the uplink path, the control circuit switches the TDD transmit mode to the downlink direction. In this manner, the control circuit does not have to control the TDD transmit mode based solely on detected power in the downlink path, where a directional coupler may leak uplink power in the downlink path.

  • Patent number: 10687340
    Abstract: One or more techniques and/or systems are provided for automatically forming a wireless sensor network, implementing power management for the wireless sensor network, and/or self-healing within the wireless sensor network. For example, hub devices, configured to forward messages through the wireless sensor network to a gateway device having access to a network, may automatically join and configure into the wireless sensor network by locating and connecting to master devices using signal frequencies representing numbers of hops to the gateway device. A hub device may be configured to transition between a low power sleep state for power conservation and an awakened normal operational state for transmitting timing signals according to a duty cycle, and thus the hub device may be capable of operating from a battery. If a hub device determines that a master device has become inoperable, the hub device may automatically search for a new master device.

  • Patent number: 10674457
    Abstract: Logic may comprise hardware and/or code to coordinate communications of wireless communications devices to reduce power consumption by stations. Logic may coordinate communications in an access point. Logic may generate and transmit a wake frame from the access point to the station to wake the receive circuitry of the station. Logic of the station may wake the receive circuitry from an idle mode, which may be a less linear and less sensitive mode, to a receiver (RX) active state, which is a high linear and high sensitivity mode. Once the receiver circuitry enters the RX active state, the station is ready to receive a transmission. Logic may implement the wake frame as a medium access control frame or as a null data packet, physical layer frame.
