  • Publication number: 20210367662
    Abstract: Methods, apparatuses, computer-readable mediums for storing software, and systems for dynamic geographical spectrum sharing (DGSS) by Earth exploration satellite services (EESS) are described herein. Using DGSS mechanisms described herein, electromagnetic spectrum may be shared by sensors onboard Earth exploration satellites and wireless networks, such as 5G networks. The DGSS mechanisms may include mechanisms for determining an instantaneous field of view (IFOV) and mechanisms for modifying transmission characteristics while network antennas and power radiated by such antennas are within a window encompassing the IFOV. For example, when the IFOV of a satellite sensor for measuring atmospheric water includes a 5G antenna, the power of the 5G antenna may be reduced, the 5G antenna may be prevented from utilizing a segment of the electromagnetic spectrum, etc.

  • Patent number: 9503283
    Abstract: An apparatus is provided for remotely rebooting Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) communication devices. In general, the apparatus remotely selects VoIP communication devices connected to a network, reboots the selected devices, and evaluates the status of each device. A processor allows a user to select VoIP communication devices connected to the network and receives inputs pertaining to the reboot operation, including a time input and search criteria. The processor communicates with the designated VoIP communication devices over a packet-switching network to instruct the devices to reboot and monitors each device. In this way, multiple VoIP communication devices may be rebooted from a remote location, and problems or issues that arise during the reboot process may be identified and addressed. An associated method and computer program product are also provided for remotely rebooting VoIP communication devices.

  • Publication number: 20140286177
    Abstract: An approach for lawful intercept of over-the-top (OTT) communications is described. A request is received to intercept one or more OTT communications. Such interception can be part of a legal mandate of an appropriate law enforcement agency. One or more session and flow identification signatures associated with a packet-based network are determined. Signaling and media traffic associated with the one or more OTT communications are identified, translated and delivered to the law enforcement agency.

  • Patent number: 8295467
    Abstract: A system for and method of re-using telephone number is presented. The system and method may include receiving, via an input/output module, a public call invite request message to establish a communication session between a calling party and a called party, establishing, via the input/output module, a first communication session with the calling party based at least in part on the public call invite request message, transmitting, via a telephone number re-use module, a plurality of private call invite request messages to a plurality of communication devices associated with the called party, establishing, via the telephone number re-use module, a second communication session with the called party based at least in part on the plurality of private call invite request messages, and coupling, via a processing module, the first communication session and the second communication session to establish the communication session between the calling party and the called party.
