  • Publication number: 20200336367
    Abstract: Processes and systems for automatically configuring small cells, microcells, picocells, and femtocells for deployment in a cellular network are described herein. The system uses an orchestrator in an Orchestration Platform to direct the generation of the configuration for network assets to be deployed. The Orchestration Platform interacts with components to generate the data and parameters necessary for the configuration. The Orchestration Platform directs system components to generate the configuration, validate the configuration, execute the configuration, and download the configuration. The processes and systems include a database to maintain the state of a system instance during the configuration process, allowing an orchestrator to start, suspend, abort, or restart its workflow process at any time without the loss of any work.

  • Publication number: 20200334235
    Abstract: A multi-dimensional graphic user interface displays selected types of information regarding items included in one or more databases or returned by a search in accordance with locations on a two-dimensional display area or projection of a three-dimensional space on a two-dimensional area and provides for selective display of information about respective items in a database (e.g. metadata) as additional dimensions of the display which may be suppressed and/or selectively introduced to avoid user distraction or obscuring information or for comparison between screens which may indicate to a user the degree to which a particular item may or may not be germane to an issue or particular subject matter of interest. The graphic user interface thus provides an effective tool for evaluating search results and organizing detailed review thereof.

  • Patent number: 10812384
    Abstract: Techniques are described for managing customer-specified routing policies for network-accessible computing resources. In some situations, the customer-specified routing policies may be based at least in part on DNS (“Domain Name System”) information specified by a customer, such as if the customer specifies one or more target destinations to use with an indicated DNS domain name that are different from the destination IP address(es) provided for that DNS domain name by DNS servers—if so, the managing of such a DNS-based routing policy for that customer may include identifying when network-accessible computing resources provided to the customer send electronic communications to that DNS domain name, and causing those electronic communications to be redirected to the customer-specified target destination(s). Such customer-specified target destinations may include, in different situations, final destinations, intermediate destinations, etc., as well as identify particular routes.

  • Patent number: 10795721
    Abstract: In a transfer of tasks between devices in a network, a failing device determines that it will not complete a task. The failing device compares the requirements of the task with sets of device capabilities on a device list, where each set is associated with a device in the network. The failing device determines that the requirements of the task matches, a set of device capabilities associated with a given device, and in response, sends a request to transfer the given task to the given device. When a rejection of the request is received, the failing device compares the requirements of the task with remaining sets of device capabilities on the device list, determines that the requirements of the task matches a second set of device capabilities associated with a second given device, and in response, sends a second request to transfer the task to the second given device.

  • Publication number: 20200312930
    Abstract: An organic light-emitting diode (OLED) display may have an array of organic light-emitting diode pixels that each have OLED layers interposed between a cathode and an anode. Voltage may be applied to the anode of each pixel to control the magnitude of emitted light. The conductivity of the OLED layers may allow leakage current to pass between neighboring anodes in the display. To reduce leakage current and the accompanying cross-talk in a display, the pixel definition layer may disrupt continuity of the OLED layers. The pixel definition layer may have an undercut to disrupt continuity of some but not all of the OLED layers. The undercut may be defined by three discrete portions of the pixel definition layer. The undercut may result in a void that is interposed between different portions of the OLED layers to break a leakage path formed by the OLED layers.
