  • Patent number: 10285048
    Abstract: A first network device determines a set ID associated with a first set of management instances in at least one network, wherein the management instances execute network access or mobility management functions for UE interaction with a wireless network and wherein a first management instance is a member of the first set of management instances. The first network device determines a first pointer value associated with the first management node, generates a first global ID, for the first management instance, that includes the set ID and the first pointer value, and installs the first management instance at a second network device, along with the first global ID, the set ID, and the first pointer value. The first network device changes the first pointer value in response to an event, wherein the event is associated with planned maintenance, a planned upgrade, or an existing or predicted outage of the wireless network.

  • Patent number: 10271334
    Abstract: A base station may configure an access beam group to include one or more antenna beams for communicating with one or more user equipment (UE). The base station may configure a backhaul beam group to include one or more antenna beams for communicating with one or more other base stations. The base station may monitor network traffic associated with the access beam group and/or the backhaul beam group, and may determine that the network traffic satisfies a condition. The base station may modify the access beam group and/or the backhaul beam group to add or remove at least one antenna beam based on determining that the network traffic satisfies the condition.

  • Patent number: 10108910
    Abstract: Parking guidance is provided to a user of a mobile device requesting information on parking spots at a requested location for a requested time. In response to receiving a parking information request, parking spots having locations proximate to the requested location and having availability at the requested time are identified in a database of parking spot information of a parking management server. A notification of the identified parking spots is transmitted to the user device from which the information request was received. In response to receiving a reservation request identifying a parking spot to be reserved from the user device, the database is updated to identify the identified parking spot as being unavailable at the requested time. Additionally, a notification of the reservation request is transmitted to a parking manager associated with the identified parking spot, the notification identifying the particular parking spot and the requested time.

  • Patent number: 9996550
    Abstract: A server may be configured to receive behavior information associated with a user device. The behavior information may indicate a set of geographical locations at which the user device has been present. The server may generate a mode based on the behavior information. The mode may indicate a set of conditions based on which the mode is to be activated, and a set of information to be presented when the mode is activated. The server may output the mode to the user device. The user device may determine, after receiving the mode, that the set of conditions has been satisfied. The determining may be based on a geographical location of the user device. The user device may activate the mode, based on determining that the set of conditions has been satisfied; and may present at least a portion of the set of information, based on activating the mode.
