  • Publication number: 20220231952
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a first device coordinates probing of network paths that extend between an edge device and a data collection point via a plurality of points of presence. The first device receives a set of probing results that are indicative of one or more performance metrics associated with the network paths. The first device selects, based on the set of probing results, a particular point of presence from among the plurality of points of presence through which the edge device should send traffic to the data collection point. The first device instructs the edge device to send traffic to the data collection point via the particular point of presence.

  • Publication number: 20220225201
    Abstract: In one embodiment, an earthbound transceiver in a low earth orbit (LEO) satellite network establishes a connection with a first LEO satellite from a first set of LEO satellites. The first set of LEO satellites are distributed across a first plurality of orbits including first neighboring LEO satellites of the first LEO satellite, and the first neighboring LEO satellites have a fixed or semi-fixed position relative to the first LEO satellite. The earthbound transceiver determines first signal strength values associated with the first set of LEO satellites and second signal strength values associated with a second set of LEO satellites. The earthbound transceiver then periodically compares the first signal strength values to the second signal strength values. At an optimal handoff time, the earthbound transceiver initiates the handoff operation from the first LEO satellite to a second LEO satellite from the second set of LEO satellites.

  • Publication number: 20220210722
    Abstract: Automatic onboarding of a device onto a cellular network may be provided through a Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN). Subsequent to a device connecting to a first network (e.g., the WLAN), information associated with the device and the first network may be received. One or more tags may be generated and an intent profile may be defined for the device based on the received information, where the intent profile may indicate at least a second network (e.g., the cellular network) that the device is enabled to connect with and one or more policies associated with the connection. The tags and intent profile may be transmitted to a service provider platform, and an onboarding profile template identified using the tags and the intent profile may be received from the service provider platform. The onboarding profile template may be provided to the device to enable connection to the second network.

  • Publication number: 20210352472
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a service receives a device registration request sent by an endpoint device, wherein the endpoint device executes an onboarding agent that causes the endpoint device to send the device registration request via a cellular connection to a private access point name (APN) associated with the service. The service verifies that a network address of the endpoint device from which the device registration request was sent is associated with an integrated circuit card identifier (ICCID) or international mobile equipment identity (IMEI) indicated by the device registration request. The service identifies a tenant identifier associated with the ICCID or IMEI. The service sends, based on the tenant identifier, a device registration response to the endpoint device via the private APN.
