  • Patent number: 10932284
    Abstract: The disclosure concerns a communication system where adaptive antenna systems with algorithm are used to provide improved channel selection management in Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) and other multi-node communication systems. The adaptive antenna systems can be integrated into multiple nodes of a communication network, such as access points used in WLAN, and multiple radiation modes generated and tracked to determine optimal mode for access point to client communication links to assist in channel selection across the nodes in the network. Adaptive antenna system modes are selected and Signal to Noise Ratio (SNR) is measured across available frequency channels to determine channels to assign per access point along with radiation modes to be implemented that results in improved SNR for the communication links established in the network.

  • Patent number: 10917222
    Abstract: Apparatus and methods for performing simultaneous time division duplex (TDD) communications are disclosed. A wireless communication device can be configured to establish both a first TDD communication link and a second TDD communication link with a network, such as a telecommunication network. Thereafter, the wireless communication device can send TDD uplink data to the network via the first TDD communication link, and receive TDD downlink data from the network via the second TDD communication link, such that a portion of the TDD uplink data is sent to the network at the same time a portion of the TDD downlink data is received from the network. In this manner, the transmissions of TDD uplink data and the TDD downlink data can occur simultaneously, via multiple communication links. Further, the TDD downlink data can be received in multiple, coordinated data transmissions using Long Term Evolution (LTE) multiple-input and multiple-output (MIMO) antenna diversity.

  • Patent number: 10892965
    Abstract: In a network of data devices having routing functions, a controller within the network core is arranged to monitor the status and capabalities of each data device and to check for the availability of network functions which alter the capabilities of the data devices. The controller changes the configuration of the data devices to gain the new functionality, or alters the routing behavior so that certain control data packets are forwarded to a function processor which performs processing on behalf of the data devices in a proxy manner. The function processor provides virtual functions to the data devices.
