  • Patent number: 10511642
    Abstract: A system and method for associating users with a micro-community that is relevant to an object reference. The object reference is anything that can be perceived either physically or conceptually, such as a location, a document, a calendar entry, a document, a news feed, a biometric key, an image, a news feed, etc. A micro-community engine identifies users who are associated explicitly with the object reference as well as people who would be interested in the object implicitly and associates them with a micro-community. The micro-community engine provides an intuitive and flexible means for communication between members of the micro-community.

  • Patent number: 10135713
    Abstract: A method is disclosed for the collection of performance metrics by establishing service operations administration and maintenance (OAM) sessions between an actuator and a plurality of reflectors in a communication network. Test packets from an actuator simultaneously reach a plurality of reflectors along a test path. Each single test packet results into a plurality of test results, one per reflector, with quasi-synchronous performance metrics to sectionalize a network and more efficiently isolate fault or performance problems without the need for additional test packets to isolate the issue. Another method is disclosed wherein an actuator generates and transmits a plurality of simultaneous test packets, one per NID device, resulting into a plurality of test results, one per reflector, with quasi-synchronous performance metrics to sectionalize a network and more efficiently isolate fault or performance problems without the need for additional test packets to isolate the issue.

  • Patent number: 10111084
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for discovering a home agent serving a mobile node upon the mobile node changing its mobility management scheme in a packet-switched network and the implementation of such method in a mobile node or home agent. In order to propose a home agent discover scheme that maintains session continuity in a seamless manner upon a mobile node changing its mobility management scheme, a mobile node comprises information on its location prior to changing the mobility management scheme to one of the first signaling messages transmitted upon changing the mobility management scheme (home agent discovery message). The receiving node uses this information to identify the home agent serving the mobile node or to provide a hint to the home agent where the mobile node is registered in a response message to the mobile node.

  • Patent number: 10104016
    Abstract: Provided are a device, a system, and a method in which redundancy is changed in accordance with a line state, and thus the optimal redundancy can be set while the current settings are compared to the previous settings. A communication device measures line quality information from a received packet, and generates a redundancy change instruction based on information regarding a line. In a case where the communication device acquires line quality information for the second and subsequent times, the communication device compares the previous redundancy change instruction and the previous line quality information, to the current line quality information, and sets redundancy. Thus, it is possible to suppress the occurrence of congestion and satisfy a target value of the line quality, and to search for a condition which causes the redundancy to be the minimum.

  • Patent number: 10069743
    Abstract: Capacity enhancement of a direct communication link using a variable redundancy delivery network. An estimated information rate between a source node and a terminal node may be partitioned into a first information rate provided via the direct communication link and a second information rate to be provided via the variable redundancy delivery network. One or more parameters of the variable redundancy delivery network may be calculated to provide the second information rate based on a non-uniform probability density of messages requested by the terminal node. Capacity and reliability of storage media devices in the variable redundancy delivery network may be traded off to provide the second information rate. The variable redundancy delivery network may implement various coding schemes and per-message coding rates that may be determined based on the non-uniform probability distribution of the source message library.

  • Patent number: 10064214
    Abstract: A method and system to reduce a probability of incorrect interruption of an uplink transmission of a wireless device are disclosed. According to one aspect, decoding of a sequence of bits obtained from a signal received by the wireless device is performed without knowing whether the sequence corresponds to one of a grant for uplink transmission and noise. Decoding of the sequence of bits is performed to determine a probability metric associated with a first m bits of the sequence, where m is an integer greater than 1. The probability metric is compared to a threshold. The received signal is interpreted as having a grant sequence if the probability metric is greater than the threshold. The received signal is interpreted as noise if the probability metric is not greater than the threshold.
