  • Patent number: 10972512
    Abstract: A request to establish a communication session between a first communication endpoint to a second communication endpoint is received. A determination is made that the request to establish the communication session requires an application to be inserted into the communication session between the first communication endpoint and the second communication endpoint. For example, the application may be a call recording application. A first processing resource in a first idle communication endpoint is selected based on an idleness factor of the first processing resource. The application is sent to the first idle communication endpoint. The application in the first idle communication endpoint is then inserted into the communication session between the first communication endpoint and the second communication endpoint.

  • Patent number: 10917795
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices are described for wireless communication at a device. A Long Term Evolution Unlicensed (LTE-U) device may transmit an enhanced preamble that may be understood by Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) devices, in addition to conveying a characteristic that is detectable by receiving LTE-U devices. The transmitting LTE-U device may generate the enhanced preamble by generating a first training field and a second training field. The characteristic that is detectable by receiving LTE-U devices may be a phase shift between the first and second training fields. Additionally or alternatively, the characteristic may be a sequence or tone mapping of the first or second training field. In some cases, the transmitting LTE-U device may introduce a third training field to the preamble which serves as the characteristic.
