  • Publication number: 20190183424
    Abstract: An apparatus for monitoring EMG signals of a patient's laryngeal muscles includes an endotracheal tube having an exterior surface. Conductive electrodes are formed on the endotracheal tube. The conductive electrodes are configured to receive the EMG signals from the laryngeal muscles when the endotracheal tube is placed in a trachea of the patient. At least wireless sensor is formed on the endotracheal tube, and is configured to wirelessly transmit information to a processing apparatus.

  • Patent number: 9979595
    Abstract: Subscriber management and network service integration for an access network is described in which a centralized controller provides seamless end-to-end service from a network to access nodes. For example, a method includes dynamically establishing a control channel between the centralized controller and an access node, and establishing a transport label switched path (LSP) transport network packets between the access node and the network node. The access node sends, via the control channel, an endpoint indication message that indicates that an endpoint that has joined the network at the access node. The access node receives a pseudo wire request message via the control channel to install forwarding state for creating a pseudo wire for providing one or more network services to the endpoint. The access node receives a direct switch message via the control channel to configure the access node to map traffic received from the endpoint to the pseudo wire.

  • Patent number: 9596169
    Abstract: Dynamic control channel establishment for an access network is described in which a centralized controller provides seamless end-to-end service from a core-facing edge of a network to access nodes. For example, a method includes receiving, by the centralized controller, a discover message originating from a network node, which includes an intermediate node list that specifies a plurality of network nodes the discover message traversed from the network node to an edge node, determining, based on the plurality of nodes specified by the discover message, a path from the edge node to the network node, allocating each of a plurality of Multi-protocol Label Switching (MPLS) labels to a respective outgoing interface of each of the plurality of network nodes, and outputting one or more control messages for configuring the network node, wherein the control messages are encapsulated within a label stack comprising the allocated plurality of labels.

  • Patent number: 9350661
    Abstract: An access network is described in which a centralized controller provides seamless end-to-end service from a core-facing edge of a service provider network through aggregation and access infrastructure out to access nodes located proximate the subscriber devices. The controller operates to provide a central configuration point for configuring aggregation nodes (AGs) of a network of the service provider so as to provide transport services to transport traffic between access nodes (AXs) and edge routers on opposite borders of the network.
