  • Publication number: 20210013718
    Abstract: Based on information from a controller scheduling data traffic in a processing arrangement, a super capacitor unit is activated, whereby reactive power is fed to a system bus of said power system. The controller is configured to have information at time t(n) about the data traffic workload of the processing arrangement at time t(n+1). By triggering discharge of the super capacitor unit based on super capacitor data at time t(n+1), transients on a system bus voltage are, at least in part, smoothed out at time t(n+1), which reduces the need for reactive power of the power system, where said transients are related to the data traffic workload of the processing arrangement. The power efficiency of the power system can be improved by 3-4% by the reduction of the need for reactive power from a power grid, for which reason the electrical bill of an operator is reduced.

  • Patent number: 10887820
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for routing data packets in a communications network, such as a packet-switched network (e.g. an IP network). Instead of, or in addition to, conventional routing techniques such as longest prefix matching, the disclosure provides a method by which a network node can determine whether to defer transmission of a particular data packet based on geographical location and velocity data. Particularly for data that can tolerate high latency, this will serve to reduce consumption of network resources without adversely impacting user experience.

  • Publication number: 20200382958
    Abstract: A method by a WiFi AP for setting-up a WiFi connection with a wireless device, includes sending WiFi service credentials to a Light Fidelity (Li-Fi) AP for transmission through Li-Fi signaling that is broadcast for reception by wireless devices. The method receives and authenticates an authentication request that is received via a RF transceiver of the WiFi AP from the wireless device, which is responding to the WiFi service credentials that were broadcast through the Li-Fi signaling. The method then establishes a WiFi RF connection with the wireless device responsive to the authentication.

  • Publication number: 20200202756
    Abstract: A content distribution node that distributes content to display devices which are arranged in a spaced apart sequence along a pathway of vehicles for display to passengers. The content distribution node receives from a mobile gateway node of a vehicle, through a Light Fidelity signal receiver circuit, a profile message containing profile information related to the vehicle. The content distribution node selects, from among content files available in a content repository, a set of video frames for distribution to the display devices based on the profile information. The content distribution node distributes different video frames among the set of video frames to different ones of the display devices with timing of the distribution that allows the video frames among the set to be displayed on respective ones of the display devices in the sequence before arrival of the vehicle within a field-of-view of at least one of the display devices.

The first node (101) determines (203), automatically, a segment of the digital media content to be of interest to a first user of a second node (102) providing the digital media content to the first user. The determining (203) is based on an analysis of collected data on seeking of the digital media content by at least one second user. The seeking has been performed in points in time in the digital media content. The points in time have been freely chosen by the least one second user from an entire duration of the digital media content. The first node (101) then initiates (204) providing a first indication of the determined segment of the digital media content to be of interest to the first user, to at least one of: the second node (102), and another node (103, 104).

  • Publication number: 20200128103
    Abstract: A first network node, a client device and methods therein, for enabling acquisition and delivery of a resource to the client device in a communications network. When receiving from the client device a meta interest request indicating an interest for a wanted resource, the first network node extracts from the meta interest request one or more filter parameters related to desirable characteristics of the wanted resource. The first network node then obtains identifiers of resources available in the communications network, based on the one or more filter parameters, and sends the obtained identifiers of resources to the client device in response to the received meta interest request. Thereby, a user of the client device can see which resources with the desirable characteristics are available in the network and acquire one of the resources identified in this way, without having to specify the supplier nor the resource in the initial request.
