  • Patent number: 10476762
    Abstract: A global manager computer generates management instructions for a particular managed server within an administrative domain according to a set of rules. A global manager computer identifies a traffic midpoint device through which the provider managed server provides a service to a user device. The global manager determines a relevant rule from the set of rules that is applicable to communication between the provider managed server and the user device and generates a backend rule that is applicable to communication between the provider managed server and the traffic midpoint device. The global managed generates a backend function-level instruction including a reference to an actor-set authorized to communicate with the provider managed server to use the service. The global manager sends the backend function-level instruction to the provider managed server to configure the provider managed server to enforce the backend rule on communication with the actor-set including the traffic midpoint device.

  • Patent number: 10402709
    Abstract: Devices, systems, and methods provide direct digitization and encoding of a parameter to be sensed or measured. Digitized readings are encoded into binary bits, which are acquired and handled by digital devices. An all-digital sensing device can be implemented in passive, active, or semi-passive forms, and in some embodiments includes a transducer, digitizer/encoder, reader, and transmitter. A transducer converts the parameter to be measured into a digitizable quantity, based on such as mechanical deformation, dielectric properties, or electromagnetic wave or acoustic-wave properties. A piezoelectric material transducer converts stress/pressure into resistance or voltage. A fiber-optic interferometer transducer converts pressure/temperature/PH into irradiation amplitude or wavelength shift in spectrum domain. Encoded binary or quasi-binary states are identified by a reader. Binary states have resolutions arranged according to a 2N format.

  • Publication number: 20180100806
    Abstract: A pH micro-probe, a temperature micro-probe, and an immuno-based micro-probe each include a shaft for transmuting an input light signal and a tip for inserting into a cell or other substance for measuring pH, temperature, and/or antigens. The pH micro-probe and the temperature micro-probe each include a luminescent material positioned on the tip of the micro-probe. The light signal excites the luminescent material so that the luminescent material emits a luminescent light signal. The luminescent light signal has a property value dependent on the pH or temperature being measured and reflects back through the shaft for being measured by a light signal measuring device. The immuno-based micro-probe includes a reflective material that has an effective refractive index dependent on the number of antigen-antibody bonds present on the reflective material.
