  • Publication number: 20210037427
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems and methods for the creation, maintenance and management of virtual overlay networks across multiple communication networks managed by service providers. The simple creation and management of network overlays is accomplished via a network orchestrator manager, allowing for automation of configuration of connected network devices throughout an entire organization's network, regardless of the physical location of each device.

  • Patent number: 10911527
    Abstract: N nodes are assigned to a first layer of nodes having a first domain name server (DNS) anycast Internet Protocol (IP) address and a first fully qualified domain name (FQDN). M nodes are assigned to a second layer of nodes having a second DNS anycast IP address and a second FQDN. When a request to resolve the first FQDN for the first layer of nodes is received by a DNS of a node of the first layer and a load on the ES of the node is less than a threshold, the DNS handles the request by returning an edge server (ES) anycast IP address for the ES of the node. When the load on the ES is greater than the threshold, the DNS offloads the request by returning the second FQDN so that the second FQDN of the second layer is resolved to the second DNS anycast IP address.

  • Publication number: 20210027389
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for facilitating handling of a call from an insurance customer regarding a loss event includes presenting to a user, by a workbench application executing on a computing device, one or more notes fields in which free-form text may be entered by the user on a user interface display presented on one or more display screens, receiving, via an input device and the user interface display, free-form text that the user entered in at least one of the one or more notes fields, analyzing the received free-form text to identify one or more keywords having relevance to the loss event, communicating loss report information to a loss reporting tool via an API, the loss report information including the one or more identified keywords, and automatically populating, by the loss reporting tool, one or more loss reporting fields using the loss report information.

  • Patent number: 10896469
    Abstract: In a computer-implemented method for facilitating handling, by a user of a computing device having one or more display screens, of a call from an insurance customer regarding a loss event, a caller identification system may be accessed by one or more servers to determine a phone number associated with the call from the insurance customer. The phone number may be used to automatically retrieve customer information associated with the insurance customer from one or more databases of an insurance provider. The customer information may include a name of the insurance customer and/or a policy number of an insurance policy of the insurance customer. A customer overview, including the retrieved name and/or the retrieved policy number, may be displayed to the user on the one or more display screens.

  • Publication number: 20200358687
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system and method for the dynamic monitoring of network health characteristics via a visualization platform. The platform receives collected information regarding network health characteristics and applies a rule set defining at least one threshold to classify each of the network health characteristics for each network component over a time period. The classifications can be represented visually on a graphical user interface to a network administrator, allowing the administrator to quickly discern which aspects of the network are operating properly and which aspects are not.

  • Patent number: 10832329
    Abstract: In a computer-implemented method for facilitating handling, by a user of a computing device, of a call from an insurance customer regarding a loss event, an interactive search display may be provided. A set of one or more search terms entered by the user may be used to perform a search of one or more databases storing policy information. A set of results and an interactive control may be presented to the user. The results may include an entry for a first person. A particular relationship between the first person and the loss event, specified by the user via the interactive control, and information associated with the first person, may be used to cause loss report information to be automatically added to one or more loss reporting fields. The loss report information may be caused to be stored in a claims database as a part of a loss report record.

  • Publication number: 20200323467
    Abstract: Fetal tissue oxygenation may be performed transabdominally by, for example, receiving a plurality of detected electronic signals that correspond to light emitted from a pregnant mammal's abdomen and a fetus contained therein that has been detected by the detector and converted into the detected electronic signal. An indication of a depth of the fetus within the pregnant mammal's abdomen may be received and a portion of the detected electronic signals that correspond to light that was incident upon the fetus may be isolated responsively to the indication of the depth of the fetus using, for example, time of flight of photons that correspond to the detected electronic signals. A fetal tissue oxygen saturation level may then be determined using the isolated portion of the detected electronic signals that correspond to light that was incident upon the fetus.

  • Patent number: 10706033
    Abstract: A content management system is provided that allows users to create collections of content for management or delivery purposes by assigning content items to labels. Labels can be persisted in the system as managed objects separate from content objects. Because the labels may be separate managed objects from the content, the labels can be implemented in a manner that does not change the content items or disrupt the lifecycle of the content.
