  • Patent number: 11115388
    Abstract: A processing device such as a server implementing smart building agent functionality is located on an external network and is configured to communicate with a BAS located on a building's internal network. Communication between the processing device and the BAS occurs over a first communications channel. The processing device can be configured to receive sensor data from various sensors that might otherwise not be supported by the existing BAS. Communication between the sensors and the processing device occurs over a second communications channel different from the first communications channel. The processing device can generate control commands based on the received sensor data that provide instructions to the BAS for adjusting an operation parameter for one or more of the building systems and/or equipment. This control command can be sent to the BAS through the first communications channel.

  • Publication number: 20210258431
    Abstract: The present application at least describes a computer-implemented method including a step of setting, via a service layer residing on a server outside of an underlying 3GPP network, a trigger in the underlying 3GPP network, where the trigger defines an QoS parameter change in the underlying 3GPP network. The underlying 3GPP network is configured with functionality to send a notification to the service layer upon detecting the QoS parameter change. The computer-implemented method also includes a step of receiving, from the underlying 3GPP network, the notification the detected QoS parameter change has occurred. The computer-implemented method further includes a step of performing, at the service layer residing on the server a service layer operation in response to the received notification.

  • Patent number: 11064330
    Abstract: A Delay Indicator parameter is contained in CoAP messages to reflect delay tolerance information. The Delay Indicator is leveraged by CoAP Clients and CoAP Servers to improve their behavior such as entering sleep mode to save energy while not violating delay requirements. A timeout mechanism for CoAP Response is enabled by a RESPONSE_Timer based on the Delay Indicator in CoAP ACK. Cancellation of CoAP Requests is enabled by leveraging the delay tolerance information as indicated by Delay Indicator.

  • Patent number: 10999380
    Abstract: Methods and procedures allow devices interwork with various types of service layers by updating the device to support the protocol of the M2M/IoT service layer that is being communicated with. Devices can coordinate/initiate download of a service layer API that is compatible with the service layer the device is attempting to use. A service layer can coordinate the autonomous update of a device with the proper service layer API which allows the device to then communicate and use services supported by the service layer component to the device. A service layer can detect a device or application lacking proper service layer functionality and can trigger a management entity to update the device or application with the service layer API required such that the device can then register to the service layer and use its services. A device or application can be customized or optimized to the service layer that it is registered to and using.

  • Patent number: 10887394
    Abstract: A naming scheme for IoT Devices can address the problem that the existing naming schemes of the IoT devices do not support device discovery and group operation efficiently. An IoT Device Name Service (IDNS) can be in charge of how the device name is generated from the location and other context information; updated due to the location change or context variation; and discovered. The IoT Devices can be routed by their names using a Name Routing Protocol (NRP). With the name scheme and NRP, the IoT Devices do not need to implement the full protocol stack to enable the direct communication between them.
