  • Patent number: 11510181
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide a punctured preamble enabling wireless devices to efficiently use a channel (e.g., an 80 or 160 MHz channel) where a primary service is operating. A Wideband Channel Access Mechanism for 20 MHz/80 MHz operating STAs is provided so that a 20 MHz/80 MHz operating STA can dynamically move to a secondary channel to improve wireless performance of the STA. An AP coordinates the operating channel switch of the 20 MHz/80 MHz operating STA. An EHT cooperative multi-band operation can be applied to the preamble punctured PPDU for simultaneous multi-band operation.

  • Patent number: 11190577
    Abstract: Techniques for processing application data are described. The techniques include transmitting packets of application data to a data management server. The data management server maintains rules that dictate where the packets go as well as what actions are taken in response to the packets. Based on the rules, the data management server transmits the packets to destinations that may perform various actions. The actions performed by destinations may include logging data received from the applications, or performing other actions such as notifying an administrator or other entity of a particular event, or the like. The described architecture decouples functions such as logging, notification, and the like from the applications for which they are performed, which provides benefits such as improved scalability, as well as removing the need for application developers to build such functionality directly into the applications.

  • Publication number: 20200000291
    Abstract: A connecting system comprising a hollow transfer tube having at least two openings and one or more walls defining an aperture sealed at one end with a polymeric seal, the aperture being large enough to accommodate the transfer tube. The invention is also directed to a refill cartridge and to a dispenser. The dispenser includes a housing having an opening suitable for accommodating the refill cartridge. The housing includes at least one of i) one or more walls defining an aperture sealed at one end with a polymeric seal, the aperture being large enough to accommodate a transfer tube, the opening being in fluid communication with a conduit within the housing or ii) a hollow transfer tube, having at least two openings, extending from the housing, one opening being in communication with a conduit in the housing and the second opening in fluid communication with the exterior of the dispenser housing. The dispenser may include a u-shaped vent tube and a double valve liquid pump.

  • Publication number: 20140288970
    Abstract: A method for identifying relevant follow-up recommendations from medical reports includes identifying with a processor follow-up recommendations in electronically formatted prior medical reports, and visually presenting, via a display monitor, the identified follow-up recommendations. A computing apparatus (102) including a processor that obtains, in electronic format, an imaging examination order for a follow-up imaging examination of a patient, wherein the imaging examination order at least includes a unique identification of the patient, retrieves electronically formatted prior medical reports of the patient from a data repository based on the patient or the unique identification of the patient, identifies follow-up imaging recommendations in the retrieved electronically formatted prior medical reports, and visually presents the identified follow-up imaging recommendations.

  • Patent number: 8279987
    Abstract: A filter settings generation operation includes sampling a communication channel to produce a sampled signal. The sampled signal is spectrally characterized across a frequency band of interest to produce a spectral characterization of the sampled signal. This spectral characterization may not include a signal of interest. The spectral characterization is then modified to produce a modified spectral characterization. Filter settings are then generated based upon the modified spectral characterization. Finally, the communication channel is filtered using the filter settings when the signal of interest is present on the communication channel. In modifying the spectral characterization, pluralities of spectral characteristics of the spectral characterization are independently modified to produce the modified spectral characterization. Modifications to the spectral characterization may be performed in the frequency domain and/or the time domain.
