  • Patent number: 11949647
    Abstract: A tunnel is established between a first edge server of a distributed edge compute and routing service and a tunnel client residing on an origin server. Routing rules are installed in the edge servers of the distributed edge compute and routing service to reach the first edge server. The routing rules are based at least in part on traffic information gathered from processing other traffic that traverses the distributed edge compute and routing service. A request for content served by the origin server through the tunnel is received at a second edge server of the distributed edge compute and routing service. A path from the second edge server to the first edge server is determined based on the routing rules. The request is transmitted on the determined path. The first edge server receives the request and transmits the request to the origin server over the tunnel.

  • Patent number: 11950307
    Abstract: This document describes techniques and devices for efficient handling of a resource control state change and multi-node connectivity. Instead of performing multiple radio resource control (RRC) procedures to change a resource control state of a user equipment (UE) and establish, modify, or release a connection with multi-node connectivity, the techniques described herein combine the multiple RRC procedures into a single RRC procedure that supports both a resource control state change and multi-node connectivity. In particular, a master node sends a resource control state and multi-node connectivity message that includes both state change information and multi-node connectivity information. With this single message, timing and power resources of the UE can be conserved and failures resulting from asynchronous communication of the state change information and the multi-node connectivity information can be avoided.

  • Patent number: 11910472
    Abstract: A system described herein may provide a technique for providing high priority access to one or more particular priority cells implemented by a base station of a radio access network (“RAN”) associated with a wireless telecommunications network. A first group of User Equipment (“UEs”) may be High Priority Access (“HPA”) UEs, and a second group of UEs may be non-HPA UEs. In response to triggering events, system broadcast messages and/or Radio Resource Control (“RRC”) release messages may be used to cause HPA UEs to connect to the priority cells, and may cause non-HPA UEs to connect to other (e.g., non-priority) cells implemented by the base station.

  • Patent number: 11871467
    Abstract: Proposed are a method and a device for requesting partial information on APs in a transmission MLD in a WLAN system. Specifically, a receiving MLD transmits a probe request frame to a transmission MLD through a first link. The receiving MLD receives a probe response frame from the transmission MLD through the first link. The probe request frame includes a profile field of the second receiving STA. The profile field of the second receiving STA includes a first full information profile subfield. When the first receiving STA requests partial information on the second link, the value of the first full information profile subfield is set to 0, and the profile field of the second receiving STA further includes a first request element. The partial information on the second link is requested on the basis of the first request element.
