  • Patent number: 10972201
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for providing reference signal received power (RSRP) are disclosed herein. According to one embodiment, a signal is received in a modem. Signal elements at reference signal (RS) locations are extracted from the received signal. The signal elements are descrambled to remove a RS sequence. A linear average of the descrambled signal elements is performed to form virtual reference signal (VRS) elements. The RSRP is estimated from the VRS elements.

  • Patent number: 10936469
    Abstract: A system for providing ongoing verification of released software components utilizes feedback from a pool of devices that each locally execute a verification component. The verification component randomly selects one or more locally-executing software components, captures information associated with the randomly-selected software components responsive to detection of events satisfying one or more capture conditions, and communicates the captured information to a software component verification and analysis service. The total number of the randomly-selected software components within the verification pool is set to statistically guarantee that each one of the software components available for random selection is randomly selected on at least one of the plurality of processing devices within the verification pool.

  • Patent number: 10917193
    Abstract: Methods, a Base Station (BS), and a User Equipment (UE) in a wireless communication system for transmitting and receiving control information are provided. The method for transmitting control information by a BS in a wireless communication system includes receiving information related to a signal transmitted by a second BS that the second BS which is a neighboring BS of the first BS, determining whether a second UE using an identical resource to that used by a first UE included in a cell of the first BS exists within a cell of the second BS based on the received information, when the second UE exists, generating control information for controlling a signal transmitted to the second UE by the second BS based on the received information, and transmitting the generated control information to the first UE through a control channel.

  • Patent number: 10783058
    Abstract: Interaction between operating system components and device drivers via device driver function call addresses is monitored. Each device driver is configured to interface with at least one hardware component of a computing system. One or more verification functions of an extended device driver verification component are registered for at least one of the device driver function call addresses, each defining a predetermined verification condition. A device driver function call to one of the device driver function call addresses is intercepted and evaluated against the predetermined verification condition of the verification function registered for the device driver function call address of the intercepted device driver function.

  • Patent number: 10467082
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for verifying functionality of a computing device. A set of rules are sent to a computing device identifying a device driver. Data is received from the one device that is indicative of collected driver data of the computing device. The data is collected by a driver verifier function executing on the computing device. The driver verifier function is configured to capture information associated with the identified device driver identified by the set of rules. The received data is parsed to categorize the data with previously collected driver data of other computing devices. The data is categorized based on attributes of the collected driver data. The categorized data is provided for analysis of the driver health on the computing device.

  • Patent number: 10452459
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for verifying functionality of a computing device. Rules are received that are usable to configure a driver verifier function to capture information associated with a device driver identified by the rules. The configured driver verifier function is run on a computing device. The information is captured in response to driver conditions identified by the rules. The computing device is allowed to continue operation when the driver condition includes an error condition of the identified device driver. A communication is initiated to transmit the captured information to a driver verification analysis service.
