  • Patent number: 11316764
    Abstract: A processing system may generate segments of network infrastructure items deployed in a communication network, each segment comprising network infrastructure items grouped in accordance with segment filters and a segment size sparsity threshold, and identify anomalous segments comprising at least a subset of the segments having anomalies of an anomaly type regarding a performance indicator. The processing system may next determine segments from the subset that are defined by sets of segment filter values that are different for less than a threshold number of segment filters, merge the segments from the subset that are different for less than the threshold number to create at least one aggregate segment, and generate a ranking of the subset having the anomalies of the anomaly type, wherein the ranking includes the at least one aggregate segment. The processing system may then perform at least one action in the communication network responsive to the ranking.

  • Patent number: 11303720
    Abstract: This document describes systems, methods and apparatus for locating an object and/or processed versions of that object in a CDN cache system. When a CDN server needs to send a forward request to an origin server to retrieve an object, the CDN server can append a ‘cache hint’ (sometimes referred to herein as a pointer or as ‘reverse cookie’) to its request. The cache hint preferably includes information that will be stored at the origin server and provided to other CDN servers that subsequently ask for the same object. Preferably the information is a pointer that will enable the object to be located within the CDN and/or enable the location of modified version of the object that have already been created and stored within the CDN.

  • Patent number: 11297115
    Abstract: Various arrangements are presented for relaying a secure streaming media communication session. A media relay server system may receive from a streaming media client via the Internet a first request for the secure streaming media communication session. A secure streaming media communication session may be established between a private streaming media server and the media relay server system. The media relay server system may establish a Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) communication service between the media relay server system and the private streaming media server via the Internet. The media relay server system may route, via the Internet, encrypted media packets from the private streaming media server to the streaming media client without the encrypted media packets being decrypted by the media relay server system.
