  • Patent number: 10999429
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods are disclosed for client-based control of revising caller identifications (IDs) for communications between a private network and a public network. An apparatus including a telecommunications-providing server and processing circuit that communicates client-specific sets of data over an interface protocol. The telecommunications-providing server revises a caller ID for a VoIP call based on the client-specific sets of data, an identifier that corresponds to a requesting endpoint, and a geographic region determined from the call request. Further, the telecommunications-providing server causes control data to be sent to activate an analog-telephone bridging circuit and redirect the VoIP call by obtaining a dial tone and passes at least a subset of the data packet through the analog-telephone bridging circuit for connecting over the local line. The subset of the data packet includes the revised caller ID which is a local number identified by the determined geographic region.

  • Patent number: 10965588
    Abstract: As described herein, various nodes in a 3GPP network, including a user equipment (UE), can be used to insert metadata in uplink traffic so that the network and/or an (S)Gi-LAN can make traffic steering decisions based on the metadata. For example, the UE can insert metadata into its uplink traffic so that the services in the (S)Gi-LAN can be better leveraged. In one embodiment, network nodes are able to insert metadata that relates directly to the UE and that relates to the operating conditions of the network nodes that the UE is using to send uplink data, so that the services in the (S)Gi-LAN can be better leveraged.

  • Patent number: 10938536
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are provided in which data is received from a base station on a downlink data channel. It is determined whether a scheduling type of the downlink data channel is persistent or non-persistent. Acknowledgement/negative acknowledgement (ACK/NACK) information for the data is transmitted to the base station. In case that the scheduling type is non-persistent, the ACK/NACK information is transmitted on a first resource determined according to a downlink control channel corresponding to the data. In case that the scheduling type is persistent, the ACK/NACK information for an initial persistent data transmission is transmitted on a second resource determined by using resource information received by high-layer signaling, and the ACK/NACK information for a persistent data retransmission is transmitted on a third resource determined according to the downlink control channel associated with the persistent data retransmission.
