  • Publication number: 20220264299
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for virtual enterprise secure networking. A Layer 2 (L2)-based secured network solution is provided using resources of a computer platform to connect an operating system to a secured backend overlay network (e.g., enterprise, service provider or ‘zero trust network service’) in a way that does not require changes in the operating system and connection manager or alteration of network infrastructure (e.g., wireless access point) in the location where a client may reside. Under an aspect of the solution, the computer platform itself (e.g., platform hardware/Firmware/drivers) provides part of the role of the authenticator in an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.1X scheme either directly by simulation of an Access Point (AP) or as a pass through to the overlay network core. This replaces the traditional access point/switch authenticator role.

  • Publication number: 20220182981
    Abstract: A station (STA) may operate as a first peer-to-peer (P2P) client (P2P1) for P2P operations with dual-stage triggering. The STA may decode a primary frame trigger frame (TF) from an access point (AP) operating as a coordinator. The primary TF may allocate resources in an initial portion of a time-duration allocation to the P2P1 for the P2P operations with one or more other peer stations, including a second P2P client (P2P2) and a third P2P client (P2P3). The primary TF may further allocate resources in a subsequent portion of the time-duration allocation to the P2P2 for the P2P operations. The STA may also encode a first secondary TF for transmission within the initial portion of the time-duration allocation. The first secondary TF may allocate specific resource units (RUs) to the one or more other peer stations. The STA may also decode a TB physical layer protocol data unit (TB PPDU) encoded in accordance with a multi-user orthogonal frequency division multiple access (MU OFDMA) frame format.

Logic to cause transmission of the MAC resource assessment trigger frame to the first STA and the first group of STAs. And logic to receive one or more short term resource assessment frames from the first group of STAs, the one or more short term resource assessment frames each comprising an indication of resources for a data transfer.

  • Publication number: 20220116165
    Abstract: An access point (AP) is configured for trigger-based peer-to-peer (TB P2P) operation with at least two peer stations (P2P1) and (P2P2) in which the AP (API) is operating as a coordinator. The AP may be configured to encode a trigger frame (AP TF) for transmission to reserve channel resources for two or more P2P transfers and identify times for each of the P2P transfers and may indicate an allocation of channel resources to a first of the peer stations (P2P1) for a first of the P2P transfers and to a second of the peer stations (P2P2) for a second of the P2P transfers. During the allocation for the first P2P transfer, the AP may decode a null data packet (NDP) frame for channel sounding received from the first peer station (P2P1).

  • Patent number: 10741189
    Abstract: Embodiments that generate multiple haptic effects receive a first haptic effect signal having a first priority and corresponding to a first haptic effect, and receive a second haptic effect signal having a second priority and corresponding to a second haptic effect. When the first priority is less than the second priority, embodiments generate an interaction parameter using the second haptic effect signal. When the second priority is less than the first priority, embodiments generate the interaction parameter using the first haptic effect signal. Embodiments then apply a drive signal to a haptic output device according to the interaction parameter, where the drive signal causes the first haptic effect and the second haptic effect to be generated by the haptic output device concurrently.

  • Patent number: 10591995
    Abstract: A gaming concept in which each user in a single-player or a multi-player game is enabled to create artwork or graffiti work virtually or on actual surfaces using haptic-enhanced controllers. The controllers can emulate the experience of using a marker, a paint brush, a paint spray-can or the like. The components of various controllers may be modularized for easily interchanging components to extend the art or graffiti creation experience. The real life experience of using ink or paint on a surface is simulated by haptic feedback. When a paint spray-can controller is used, the experience of paint consumption is recreated by various peripheral enhancements including audio and haptic sensations communicated to the user.
