  • Patent number: 11909818
    Abstract: Managing containerized workloads, such as by Kubernetes, provides a robust and expandable platform. Kubernetes high-availability (HA) mode provides additional safeguards against failure that allows services to be maintained without interruption in the event of a partial system or network failure. However, Kubernetes requires an odd number of master nodes (e.g., three) in order to be able have a quorum and maintain certain operations (e.g., election of a leader). In the event a master node loses functionality, the remaining master nodes are unable to have a quorum. System and methods are provided to convert a worker-only node into a master node in order to reestablish a quorum. Once functionality is restored, the converted master is reverted back to a worker-only node and the restored master, and remaining masters, maintain the quorum.

  • Patent number: 11877163
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method of operating a Radio Access Network (RAN) including a Radio Unit (RU), a first Distributed Unit (DU), a second DU that functions as a dynamic standby DU, and a network management device. After the RU transmits data to the first DU using a configuration parameter set to an address of the first DU, the RU detects an outage of the first DU. In response to detecting the outage, the RU transmits to the network management device a message indicating detection of the outage. In response, the network management device configures the second DU to perform the functions of the first DU, and causes the second DU to request the RU to set the configuration parameter to an address of the second DU. The RU then uses the configuration parameter set to the address of the second DU to transmit data to the second DU.

  • Patent number: 11855859
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems and methods that provide a computerized application management framework that adaptively configures application usage and/or network parameters/characteristics at a location based on determined intelligence about the network, devices executing therein/therearound and behavioral patterns of users in/around the location. The disclosed framework can leverage information related to network capacity and coverage against network activity (e.g., upload/download, streaming, and the like) of devices connected to the network to determine i) which applications are to be prioritized, and/or ii) which devices operating such applications should be prioritized. Thus, the framework provides mechanisms for dynamically managing operations of devices connected to a network and applications executing on such devices that rely on such network connection, such that their network usage can be adaptively controlled to ensure network stability and integrity for prioritized operations.

  • Patent number: 11811669
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a system that detects whether a data flow is an elephant flow; and if so, the system treats it differently than a mouse flow. The system of some embodiments detects an elephant flow by examining, among other items, the operations of a machine. In detecting, the system identifies an initiation of a new data flow associated with the machine. The new data flow can be an outbound data flow or an inbound data flow. The system then determines, based on the amount of data being sent or received, if the data flow is an elephant flow. The system of some embodiments identifies the initiation of a new data flow by intercepting a socket call or request to transfer a file.
