  • Publication number: 20220279443
    Abstract: A first device is configured to establish a connection over a short-range communication link with a second device. The first device may transition to a sleep state, terminate (i) a paging operation and a page scanning operation associated with a paging protocol and (ii) an advertisement scanning operation associated with an advertisement protocol and perform an advertisement broadcast operation associated with the advertisement protocol, the advertisement broadcast operation generating an advertisement to be broadcast at a first interval, wherein the first interval is greater than a second interval for performing advertisement broadcast operations in an active state.

  • Patent number: 11431561
    Abstract: The Internet can be configured to provide communications to a large number of Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices. Devices can be designed to address the need for network layers, from central servers, through gateways, down to edge devices, to grow unhindered, to discover and make accessible connected resources, and to support the ability to hide and compartmentalize connected resources. Network protocols can be part of the fabric supporting human accessible services that operate regardless of location, time, or space. Innovations can include service delivery and associated infrastructure, such as hardware and software. Services may be provided in accordance with specified Quality of Service (QoS) terms. The use of IoT devices and networks can be included in a heterogeneous network of connectivity including wired and wireless technologies.

  • Publication number: 20210409498
    Abstract: A communications device, such as an Internet-of-Things device, includes an entity resource to originate or consume data, and core resources to facilitate stateless messaging with a remote device, with the messaging being associated with the entity resource. Transaction resources are provided to manage a transaction with the remote device. The transaction includes a sequence of messages associated with the entity resource. The transaction resources include a transaction state machine to represent a current intra-transactional ephemeral state from among a plurality of intra-transactional ephemeral states representing progression of the transaction, a commit handler to institute a persistent state change related to the entity resource in response to a successful completion of the transaction, and a transaction communicator to conduct intra-transaction communications via the core resources directed to corresponding transactional resources of the remote device.

  • Patent number: 10762160
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments provide a system that delivers content to an electronic device, The system includes a content provider that obtains a public address of the electronic device from a first request for the content from the electronic device, Next, the content provider uses the public address to identify a local caching server on a local area network (LAN) of the electronic device. Finally, the content provider provides a local address of the local caching server to the electronic device, wherein the local address is used by the electronic device to obtain the content from the local caching server and the LAN without accessing a content delivery network (CDN) outside the LAN.

  • Patent number: 10742760
    Abstract: Techniques for implementing a publish-subscribe messaging system are disclosed. An example device generates a topic string comprising a string of characters that represent a subscription to a requested publication. A subscription filter is computed based on the topic string. The device is configured to receive a publication, which includes a data payload and a publication filter. The device performs a bitwise comparison of the subscription filter and the publication filter to determine whether the publication is a destination match for the subscription. If the publication is a destination match for the subscription, the device consumes the data payload of the publication.

  • Patent number: 10320932
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to conveying state changes from an advertising node to one or more discovering nodes, wherein the advertising node may convey the state changes using small efficient low-level broadcast or multicast advertisements to trigger delivering larger structured data in a manner that may be conceptually similar to broadcasting or multicasting but actually delivered using point-to-point or other delivery mechanisms that may be more efficient and reliable. In particular, the advertising node may the convey state changes using broadcast messaging and a store-and-forward cache in a manner that removes bandwidth and/or size constraints that networks impose on multicast/broadcast datagrams while preserving benefits associated therewith.
