  • Patent number: 10880180
    Abstract: An improved system and method for providing data analytics management (DAM), in particular for wireless networks having multiple domains, is disclosed. Some embodiments utilize a hierarchical DAM structure. Such a hierarchy includes a Global DAM function which provides inter network DAM, and domain DAM functions which provide intra network DAM. Some embodiments utilize a plurality of local DAM functions within a domain. In some embodiments, the global DAM can be implemented by a third party. In other embodiments, different networks inter operate by utilizing virtual network slices over non-owned infrastructure to provide what appears to be a global network by each operator. For such embodiments, DAM can be performed on a per slice basis.

  • Patent number: 10880176
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure provide architectures, methods and systems that will allow reconfigurability of the network to suit the needs of various parties. Accordingly, some embodiments provide a controllable open operation environment. In such an environment, there can be a decoupling of various network aspects which would be conventionally be under the span of control of a service provider, allowing for each aspect to be provided by a different entity. For example, infrastructure can be provided separately from the provider of network services to subscribers and/or from the provider of slices and/or from the provider of NOS services. For example an infrastructure provider can provide infrastructure used by a slice provider to provide network slices to virtual network providers which provide services to end customers. Generally speaking, SONAC-Com is responsible for the composition of slices and manages resources at the slice level. SONAC-Op is responsible for the operation of slices.

  • Publication number: 20200403740
    Abstract: Various methods and systems are provided for allocating time-frequency resources for downlink (DL) and uplink (UL) communications between base stations and mobile stations. Different forms of resource allocation messages including combinations of bitmaps and bitfields provide additional information about the resources and/or how they are assigned. In some implementations the resource allocation messages enable reduced overhead, which may ultimately improve transmission rates and/or the quality of transmissions.

  • Publication number: 20200401911
    Abstract: The disclosed embodiments provide a system for processing data. During operation, the system receives, over a set of event streams, a set of logging events for actions performed between members and jobs over multiple channels. Next, the system aggregates a subset of the logging events spanning a logging window by a reference identifier (ID) generated based on a user session of a member, a first member ID for the member, and a first job ID for a job. The system then creates, based on a unified data logic, a record containing a subset of the actions represented by the logging events and contexts for the subset of the actions. Finally, the system outputs the record for use in subsequent analysis associated with the member and the job.

  • Patent number: 10862609
    Abstract: In some embodiments of the invention, OFDM symbols are transmitted as a plurality of clusters. A cluster includes a plurality of OFDM sub-carriers in frequency, over a plurality of OFDM symbol durations in time. Each cluster includes data as well as pilot information as a reference signal for channel estimation. In some embodiments, a plurality of clusters collectively occupy the available sub-carrier set in the frequency domain that is used for transmission. In some embodiments of the invention data and/or pilots are spread within each cluster using code division multiplexing (CDM). In some embodiments pilots and data are separated by distributing data on a particular number of the plurality of OFDM symbol durations and pilots on a remainder of the OFDM symbol durations. CDM spreading can be performed in time and/or frequency directions.

  • Patent number: 10841208
    Abstract: Routing packets through a virtual network (VN) in support of service-based traffic forwarding is provided. Data packets are routed using a virtual router (v-router) toward a destination end point over a pre-configured VN. The v-router is associated with a VN node, which is associated with a physical network node (NN). A data packet associated with the VN is received and a name identifier of the destination end point is specified. A location corresponding to the name identifier is obtained. An indication of a destination VN node corresponding to the location is obtained. An indication of a next VN node on a path between the virtual router and the destination VN node is obtained. The indication of the next VN node is inserted into the packet to produce a routed packet. The routed packet is submitted to the associated NN for transmission toward the next node.
