  • Patent number: 9231783
    Abstract: Embodiments for enabling traffic content identification by a wireless transmit/receive unit are provided. The WTRU may store interface binding entries in a database associating links in a web page to various traffic content types, such as video, audio, and text. Upon a request to access one of the links, a socket may be created based on a data mobility policy associated with the traffic content type. Alternately, the database may associate the links directly to interface types based on the data mobility policies. The Access Network Discovery and Selection Function (ANDSF) may provide the data mobility policies to the WTRU.

  • Patent number: 9208463
    Abstract: One or more processing devices access a service definition for a service provided by one or more entities that each produce machine data or about which machine data is generated. The service definition identifies the entities that provide the service and, for each entity, identifying information for locating machine data pertaining to that entity. The processing devices access a key performance indicator (KPI) for the service that is defined by a search query that produces a value derived from the machine data pertaining to the entities identified in the service definition. The value indicates how the service is performing at a point in time or during a period of time and indicates a state of the KPI. A graphical interface is displayed and an indication of at least one threshold, which defines an end of a range of values representing a state of the KPI, for the KPI is received.

  • Patent number: 9210534
    Abstract: A cloud computing messaging system for location-based searching for Internet of Things (IoT) devices includes data processors, a receiver, and a transmitter. The system includes a storage medium containing instructions for the processors to receive a communication from a first IoT device connected with the system using a first protocol. The communication includes a location query and is received using the first protocol. The processors determine a second IoT device having a location that matches the location query. The second IoT device is connectable using a second protocol. The processors transmit information to the first IoT device related to the second IoT device and is transmitted using the first protocol. The processors receive a transmission from the first IoT device for the second IoT device using the first protocol, translate the transmission to the second protocol, and transmit the translated transmission to the second IoT device using the second protocol.

  • Patent number: 9195429
    Abstract: A system and method implementing a multi-user display linking multiple independent software processes with remote mobile devices is disclosed. The system/method augments multiple planes of conventional video graphics memory (VGM) controlled by a video graphics controller (VGC) in a host computing context (HCC) with a plane selection register (PSR) that enables isolation of individual planes of video memory within the VGM. The PSR is associated with a process mapping table (PMT) that maps in hardware a user process identification (PID) associated with an individual software process running within the HCC under control of a host operating system (HOS). HOS process context changes update the PSR with PMT content corresponding to an active HCC PID. A video graphics encoder (VGE) inspects areas of change within individual VGM planes and emits these changes as streaming video content to an Ethernet interface communicating with remote mobile devices associated with the HCC PIDs.

  • Patent number: 9197697
    Abstract: A system and method deploying cloud computing software applications and resources to mobile devices is disclosed. The system/method virtualizes the graphical user experience (GEX) and user input experience (UEX) that comprise the graphical user interface (GUI) for host application software (HAS) running on a host computer system (HCS). The virtualized GUI (VUI) GEX component is converted to a remote video stream (RVS) and communicated to a remote mobile computing device (MCD) over a computer communication network (CCN). A MCD thin client application (TCA) receives the RVS and presents this GEX content on the MCD display using a graphics experience mapper (GEM). A TCA user experience mapper (UEM) translates MCD user inputs to a form suitable for UEX protocols and communicates this user input over the CCN to the HCS for translation by the UEX into HCS operating system protocols compatible with the HAS.

  • Patent number: 9172759
    Abstract: Systems and methods relating to communication within a fabric network are presented. The fabric network includes one or more logical networks that enables devices connected to the fabric to communicate with each other using various profiles known to the devices. A device sending a message may follow a general message format to encode the message so that other devices in the fabric may understand the message regardless of which logical networks the devices are connected to. Within the message format, a payload of data may be included for the receiving device to forward, store, or process the message. The format and the contents of the payload may vary according to a header within the payload that indicates a profile and a message type within the profile. Using the profile and message type, the receiving devices may decode the message to process the message.
