  • Patent number: 10484113
    Abstract: A method of selecting a data transmission rate for transmitting a packet from a transmitting node to a receiving node in a wireless communication system. An updated predictive received signal quality indicator value reflecting signal quality expected to be experienced by the receiving node on the packet received from the transmitting node is obtained, as is a best instance data transmission rate corresponding to a received signal quality indicator sub-range that includes the obtained updated predictive received signal quality indicator value. The packet from the transmitting node is transmitted to the receiving node using the obtained best instance. The transmitting node periodically performs a test procedure wherein a packet is instead transmitted using a test instance selected among the set of instances for the received signal quality indicator sub-range that includes the obtained updated predictive received signal quality indicator value.

  • Patent number: 9769708
    Abstract: A method of mobility management in a label-switched network comprising a primary domain comprising N label-switched nodes, with N>1, and a mobile domain comprising M mobile label-switched nodes, with M?1, the mobile domain being movable with respect to said primary domain, packets routing between the primary domain and the mobile domain being performed by means of a primary border node, selected from the N label-switched nodes, and a mobile border node, selected from the M mobile label-switched nodes, wherein a handoff procedure is executed that establishes a label switched connection between the primary border node and the mobile border node.

  • Patent number: 9307413
    Abstract: In a wireless or hybrid mesh communication system, radio frequencies are managed by assigning an in-use frequency channel to each local family of nodes, distributing spare frequency channel(s) among the local families of nodes, and changing the in-use frequency channel of at least one selected local family of nodes to a new frequency channel selected among its spare frequency channel(s), if any, or among the spare frequency channel(s) of another local family of nodes if said at least one selected local family of nodes has no spare frequency channel(s), and/or as the in-use frequency channel of another local family of nodes if none of said local families of nodes has spare frequency channel(s).

  • Patent number: 8355368
    Abstract: Method of detour path determination for data packets re-routing in a mesh network comprising a plurality of N nodes, arranged according to a network topology, each node has a K-hops neighborhood knowledge of the network topology, with 1?K<N, primary paths are predefined for routing data packets within the mesh network. Detour paths are automatically discovered and set up while expending relatively few resources in terms of processing complexity, signaling and information spreading. The method is particularly advantageous when used in a wireless mesh network wherein the available bandwidth and the node resources and capabilities are much more limited than in wired networks.

  • Patent number: 7626955
    Abstract: A system and method for scheduling uplink and downlink burst data transmissions for half-duplex terminals in a communication system. After the first half duplex terminal capacity allocation is scheduled for a plurality of half duplex terminals, all available second half duplex terminals are placed in the same relative order as that of the half duplex terminal first capacity allocation. An iterative process is used in order to determine a final second frame layout. Once a set of potential solutions are determined, one solution is selected, and a final second frame structure is determined.
