  • Patent number: 10404854
    Abstract: A centralized server system (12, 18) is arranged to monitor overload restriction requirements of session control nodes (21A-D) within a globally scalable VoIP and Multimedia network (20) in order to handle session set-up requests. An overload status module (38) in the server system receives overload status messages (22) from the session control nodes and based on these messages and the demand on each session control node determined from session set-up requests, the server system (12, 18) selects which session control nodes (21A-D) as well as which of their associated interconnects to other networks to include in a session setup response (6) to a session setup request (5) from a source session control node (21A-D).

  • Publication number: 20190226955
    Abstract: A board testing apparatus and method and in particular a testing apparatus for testing a board made of a corrugated material, such as corrugated cardboard, for failure characteristics. The method comprises taking a corrugated board from a corrugator or converter, locating at least a part of the board into a testing machine, performing a non-destructive compression test on a sample region of the part of the board within the machine and providing a compression test characteristic reading of that region of the board, comparing that characteristic reading against a predefined acceptable compression test characteristic reading that design of corrugated board should have and concluding from the comparison as to whether the board, or that sample region of the board, meets a required compression stiffness parameter.

  • Patent number: 10015276
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for providing services that are adapted to the access networks of end users (10). By providing defined information to a residential gateway (110) and/or an access network provider (12) a service provider (18) enables the access network provider (12) to open a dedicated communications channel (20) between itself and the service provider. The service provider can use this channel to request information about the capabilities of the end user's access network as well as for requesting conditioning of data streams sent to said end user.

  • Patent number: 9584405
    Abstract: A method and server system for providing application layer session routing based on network element availability. A server system (12, 18) is arranged to monitor the abilities of session control edge nodes (21A-D) within a large VoIP and Multimedia transit network (20) to handle session set-up requests. A status module (38) in the server system receives status messages (22, 24) from the edge nodes and based on these messages a selection and modification module (40, 41) selects which edge nodes (21A-D) as well as which of their associated interconnects to other networks to include in a response (5) to a routing request (4) from a source node (21A-D).

  • Patent number: 7303519
    Abstract: A folding and gluing machine is provided for converting a corrugated blank into a panel having at least two parallel struts formed from the blank. The machine forms the struts by having compression chains on each side that exert pressure on the sides of the blank so that struts are formed along weaken lines that have been formed in the blank by a slitter. The struts are formed along an L shaped anvil which has creasing rollers to start the formation of the struts. Each strut is composed of two legs which are glued together. The slitter may be incorporated as a part of the folding and gluing machine.

  • Patent number: 5869103
    Abstract: Provided are biodegradable microparticles, which exhibit a linear release profile of active agent, and methods for making the microparticles. The microparticles include a mixture of a biodegradable polymer, a water soluble polymer, and an active agent. Preferred biodegradable polymers include lactide homopolymers or copolymers of lactide and glycolide, and preferred water soluble polymers include poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) or PEG copolymers. The microparticles are made using an emulsion/solvent extraction method, in which the continuous phase of the secondary emulsion contains an organic solvent that is miscible with the organic solvent in the primary emulsion.
