  • Patent number: 12034784
    Abstract: Example methods and systems provide automatic detection of companion mode for a virtual conference application in hybrid events. A client device joins a virtual event session via the virtual conference application provided by a virtual conference provider. During the virtual event session, the virtual conference application receives a first audio signal from an audio source at an on-site event and a second audio signal from the virtual conference provider. The virtual conference application determines a correspondence between the first audio signal and the second audio signal during the virtual event session. The second audio signal is muted in response to determining the correspondence.

  • Patent number: 12021699
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media are provided for provisioning a common subnet across a number of subscribers and their respective virtual networks using dynamically generated network policies that provide isolation between the subscribers. The dynamic generation of the network policies is performed when a host (e.g. client) is detected (via a switch) as the host joins the computing network via virtual networks. This ability to configure a common subnet for all the subscriber virtual networks allows these subscribers to more easily access external shared services coming from a headquarter site while keeping the separation and segmentation of multiple subscriber virtual networks within a single subnet. This allows the Enterprise fabric to be more simple and convenient to deploy without making security compromises.

  • Patent number: 12003605
    Abstract: A method for fetching a content from a web server to a client device is disclosed, using tunnel devices serving as intermediate devices. The client device accesses an acceleration server to receive a list of available tunnel devices. The requested content is partitioned into slices, and the client device sends a request for the slices to the available tunnel devices. The tunnel devices in turn fetch the slices from the data server, and send the slices to the client device, where the content is reconstructed from the received slices. A client device may also serve as a tunnel device, serving as an intermediate device to other client devices. Similarly, a tunnel device may also serve as a client device for fetching content from a data server. The selection of tunnel devices to be used by a client device may be in the acceleration server, in the client device, or in both.

  • Patent number: 11995397
    Abstract: A request for a page is received. A processor is used to provide an optimized version of the page at least in part by determining dynamically an optimized content element for the page based at least in part on a user attribute associated with the request and content performance data generated based at least in part on testing of alternative versions of the page with respect to other users having the user attribute. The provided optimized version of the page is selected from the alternative versions of the page based on the content performance data indicating that the selected version of the page is optimized for the other users having the user attribute.

  • Patent number: 11997173
    Abstract: A method performed by a communication device in a network comprising mobile networks operated by mobile network operators, MNOs, is provided. The method includes signaling to a first server to discover a second server having information about a public land mobile network identifier and a network service of a MNO. The second server has a first fully qualified domain name, FQDN, pointing to a provider domain. The method further includes receiving a response including a resolution or a redirection of the FQDN; signaling to discover the information about the network service; and receiving a response from the second server including a first identification of the information about the network service of the MNO or a second identification that the network service is not available. Corresponding methods performed by a first server and a second server are also provided.

  • Patent number: 11985032
    Abstract: A templating engine in a network management platform creates and stores named templates that describe a network state associating one or more IP address blocks and sub-blocks with one or more corresponding attributes of potential and actual network resources. Named templates comprise, for each IP address sub-block, a data object including a set of actions to be taken in response to provisioning requests based on metadata associated with a network resource identified by the request. Responsive to a provisioning request for access by a resource to the enterprise network, an executed template automatically assigns an IP address to that resource in one of the sub-blocks according to identified attributes of the resource. The executing template automatically notifies external systems of the IP address assignment of the enterprise network.
