  • Publication number: 20210306222
    Abstract: Virtual machine server clusters are managed using self-healing and dynamic optimization to achieve closed-loop automation. The technique uses adaptive thresholding to develop actionable quality metrics for benchmarking and anomaly detection. Real-time analytics are used to determine the root cause of KPI violations and to locate impact areas. Self-healing and dynamic optimization rules are able to automatically correct common issues via no-touch automation in which finger-pointing between operations staff is prevalent, resulting in consolidation, flexibility and reduced deployment time.

  • Patent number: 10750362
    Abstract: A system that incorporates teachings of the present disclosure may include, for example, identifying a request from a femtocell located at a customer premises to receive a requested service of subscribed services related to a subscriber account that identifies an availability of the requested service to the femtocell. Authentication information is determined, provided by way of the femtocell and a message is provided to a server including the authentication information and an identifier of a customer premises device located at the customer premises. An authentication process to authenticate the femtocell is initiated responsive to the request, wherein the server identifies the subscriber account based on the identifier of the customer premises device, and wherein the femtocell is authenticated based on information associated with the subscriber account. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10045016
    Abstract: A method of managing lip synchronization error in a multimedia content delivery network includes identifying a video packet and an audio packet associated with the video packet and determining a synchronization offset between the audio and video packets at a first monitoring point in the network. The audio and video packets are then detected at a second monitoring point in the network and a second synchronization offset is determined. When a delta between the first synchronization offset and the second synchronization offset exceeds a threshold, lip synchronization error information may be automatically recorded and/or reported to a service provider and corrective action may be taken if potential sources of the lip synchronization error are within the domain of the service provider. The video packet may be identified by a timestamp within the packet and the audio packet may be identified by audio data within the audio packet.

  • Patent number: 9998382
    Abstract: A process and system for user-controlled configuration of an Internet protocol network. The user may supply input for generating a network classification profile, which includes a number of classes of service (COSs) for prioritizing network traffic, including video transmission. A quality of service (QOS) may be measured and compared with a COS for video transmission. Depending on the measured QOS, a network alert may be issued and a priority of packets associated with the COS for video transmission may be increased.
