  • Patent number: 10313215
    Abstract: In a typical computer network, at least some of the managed resources are monitored to determine whether those resources are meeting predetermined performance goals or service level objectives. To simplify the process of configuring a network monitor, information about the service level objectives is loaded into the resource itself. When the resource is detected, the service level objective information is extracted from the resource information and made available to a translating engine. The translating engine converts the extracted information to monitoring directions that are used to configure the network monitor. Embodiments in which new resources are detected either buying a registration process or a polling process are described.

  • Patent number: 10263900
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are system, method, and computer program product embodiments for dynamically applying PPP-based network functions to traffic flows based on heuristics, policy conditions, and client-specified conditions. A network monitors a network traffic flow to determine whether the network traffic flow meets a first criterion of a first rule. The criterion specifies that when the first criterion is met, a PPP-based network function be used to analyze or process the network traffic flow. When the network traffic flow is determined to meet the first criterion, the network determines a first route through the network to a PPP-based router that provides the PPP-based network function and configures one or more routers along the first route to forward the network traffic flow to the PPP-based router for analysis or processing.

  • Patent number: 10225864
    Abstract: The invention provides the method and apparatus for node and UE to schedule and transmit CTS in a communication network. The method comprises that a node transmits a RTS for indicating a CTS scheduling information to a LTE in an unlicensed band, wherein the scheduling information is used to indicate the LTE to send a CTS in uplink licensed band in response to the RTS. The CTS scheduling information may explicitly include time resource and frequency resource for the UE to transmit the CTS. The CTS scheduling information may implicitly indicate the time and frequency resource for the UE to transmit the CTS. Based on the explicit or implicit schemes of the present application, the scheduling signaling overhead can be reduced and the co-existence problem between LTE-U/LTE-U or between LTE-U/Wi-Fi can be efficiently mitigated.
