  • 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.

  • Patent number: 8610378
    Abstract: Methods and systems for easily integrating a light-emitting diode (LED) light assembly with an existing xenon power supply. An exemplary system includes a xenon power supply that includes an energy storage device and a device that commands the energy storage device to discharge the stored energy and transmit a trigger signal after a predefined amount of time since at least one of a previous discharge or a beginning of initial charge of the energy storage device. The LED light assembly includes one or more LEDs and a current regulator that receives the discharge from the storage device and regulates current to the LEDs based on LED requirements. The LED light assembly also includes a processing device that receives the trigger signal, resets and begins a timer upon reception of the trigger signal and deactivates the current regulator when the timer has reached predefined threshold.

  • Patent number: 8575858
    Abstract: Systems and methods for allowing replacement of updated light heads with different design parameters to become independent of the remote power supply. An exemplary light system includes a light head remote from a power supply component. The light head includes one or more light-emitting diodes (LEDs) or other light emitting devices, a memory that stores configuration information and a communication component. The power supply component includes a power converter, a memory, and a controller. The power converter outputs an electrical signal for driving the one or more LEDs. The memory stores light head configuration information. The controller receives configuration information from the communication component via the data bus, generates and sends instructions, based on at least one of the configuration information stored in the power supply component memory or the configuration information received from the light head, to the power converter.

  • Publication number: 20070146168
    Abstract: Flashing lights powered by a common wild frequency power source (40) are synchronized with respect to flash rate and duration. Each lighthead includes a power supply device (1), which includes a timing signal generator (30) and a synchronization device (5). The timing signal generator (30) includes a precision clock (310), which generates a timing signal to regulate the flashing operation of the corresponding light. The synchronization device recurrently causes the timing signal to be reset in accordance with the wild frequency power source signal. By recurrently resetting the timing signal of each light according to a common wild frequency source, the flashing of the lights can be synchronized without transferring synchronization signals between the lights.

  • Publication number: 20060007012
    Abstract: A rotationally symmetrical anti-collision light (100, 200) for an aircraft utilizing light-emitting diodes (LEDs) is mounted to the fuselage of an aircraft. The LEDs (10, 10?, 20, 20?) may be configured in one or more concentric rings. The anti-collision light includes a reflector (30, 30?) configured to redirect the light emitted by at least one of the rings, so that the light pattern satisfies predetermined specifications.

  • Publication number: 20060006821
    Abstract: A system and method for implementing an LED-based luminaire (100) incorporates one or more color channels (32-n). The luminaire includes a controller (50) that uses optical sensing and feedback to control LEDs (30A) in each channel to deliver a consistent intensity and/or color output. The optical feedback loop may provide measured intensity and/or color of the luminaire's output to the luminaire controller. The controller may then adjust the current, pulse width modulation (PWM) duty cycle, or both, which are delivered to discrete color channels of the luminaire to obtain the desired intensity and/or color.

  • Patent number: 6934724
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for reducing resource contention in parallel data backup processes that share a variety of resources in a computer environment to access target data to be backed-up. The target data is distributed among the backup processes based on an availability of one or more resources in the computer environment used by a backup storage system to access the target data. In one example, each data file of the target data is assigned to a particular backup process based on the availability of one or more resources and a total size of the target data. The data files of the target data are assigned to the backup processes such that each backup process backs-up a respective portion of the target data, and such that the collection of backup processes that make up a backup operation are completed in a shortened time as a result of reduced resource contention.
