  • Patent number: 9228238
    Abstract: A method for the early diagnosis of carcinomas of the anogenital tract, preferably of the cervical carcinoma, and the preliminary stages thereof is described. The method is based on the determination of the methylation status of segments of the gene regions of ASTN1 (astrotactin 1) and ZNF671 (zinc finger protein 671, transcription factor). A DNA methylation in the promoter region or the 5?-region of these genes is indicative for carcinomas of the anogenital tract or severe preliminary stages thereof. The present invention also relates to kits which permit the conduction of the diagnostic method according to the invention.

  • Patent number: 7680518
    Abstract: An access point operating in a wireless communication network includes a smart antenna for generating directional antenna beams. A method for operating the access point includes communicating with a client station using a selected directional antenna beam, with the client station initially being in a stationary position. Signal to noise ratios of signals received from the client station within a time interval are measured. At least one variation metric of a mean of the measured signal to noise ratios within the time interval is determined. This at least one determined variation metric is compared to a threshold for determining if the client station is moving.

  • Publication number: 20050285803
    Abstract: An access point operates in an 802.11 wireless communication network communicating with a client station, and includes a smart antenna for generating directional antenna beams and an omni-directional antenna beam. An antenna steering algorithm scans the directional antenna beams and the omni-directional antenna beam for receiving signals from the client station. The signals received via each scanned antenna beam are measured, and one of the antenna beams is selected based upon the measuring for communicating with the client station. The selected antenna beam is preferably a directional antenna beam. Once the directional antenna beam has been selected, there are several usage rules for exchanging data with the client station. The usage rules are directed to an active state of the access point, which includes a data transmission mode and a data reception mode.
