  • Publication number: 20240221015
    Abstract: A method includes defining a first specification for a first network slice, determining a first equilibrium value for a first time period for the first network slice offering, receiving a first bid price for the first network slice for the first time period from a first customer, comparing the first equilibrium value to the first bid price; and providing services using the network slice to the customer during the time period in accordance with the first specification and the bid price if the bid price meets or exceeds the equilibrium value.

  • Patent number: 11997583
    Abstract: A software defined network (SDN) can add network repository functions (NRF) into a configurations database to enable NF discovery. The SDN can subscribe to NRF notifications to receive new cloud native functions (CNF), registrations, or any other update to the CNF status in 5G system. In addition to listening to NRF notifications, the SDN can implement CNF pooling processes to periodically retrieve CNF from an NRF repository and stay in sync with 5G systems. Thus, a deep service path discovery can be developed from network service configurations and container call flows to enable an accurate alarm correlation and troubleshooting for the operations. This service path deep discovery can be designed and implemented as a standalone system or in an SDN framework with integration of a container management framework such as K8 kubernetes.

  • Publication number: 20220353716
    Abstract: The current disclosure facilitates the use of intelligent remote radio unites via the use of microservices and modems to make the radio head intelligent. If an enhanced common public radio interface (eCPRI) link is down, the radio head can communicate over the air via the wireless network to an operations, administration and maintenance (OAM) network. Thus, if the microservice is located at the radio head, the microservice can continuously monitor the radio head and evaluate its status. The microservice can then use this information to determine a status (e.g., latency, latency time, or the like) of the radio head and provide that information to the OAM. The microservice can facilitate rebooting or restarting of the radio head and/or run additional testing and/or measures on the link and/or the port of the radio head and provide that information over the air.
