  • Patent number: 9992762
    Abstract: The Reverse Path Communication System architecture enables end user devices to share a common wireless forward path of a multicast communication architecture in which the forward path delivered content is dynamically changed or modified based on a real-time, near-real-time, or delay-time basis via aggregated reverse path feedback from at least one of a plurality of end user devices. The Reverse Path Communication System periodically or continuously aggregates the feedback input received via the reverse path (having wired and/or wireless connectivity), modifies the forward path multi-media content, and delivers this dynamically modified multi-media content to the then connected population of end user devices via a wireless forward path multicast in a repetitive closed loop fashion.

  • Patent number: 8509748
    Abstract: The reverse path transaction management system enables the subscriber to receive a multicast on their wireless subscriber device via the forward path of a multicast channel or via a unidirectional broadcast channel concurrently with a plurality of other subscribers on the same multicast channel or broadcast channel. The subscribers can simultaneously initiate a transaction to purchase goods and/or services via the reverse path associated with the shared multicast channel or via a separate cellular communication connection associated with the broadcast channel. Typically, goods and/or services are offered to the subscriber as part of the multicast extant on the shared forward channel.

  • Patent number: 8391827
    Abstract: The present Reverse 911 Alarm System implements a central alarm distribution site that is capable of generating an alarm indication to warn individuals of a hazard and propagating the alarm indication to selected ones of a plurality of alarm systems that are located in the service area of the central alarm distribution site to warn individuals of a hazard as well as transmitting the alarm indication to individuals via their wireless subscriber devices by the use of wireless multicasting in the wireless communication network that serves the service area of the central alarm distribution site. The central alarm distribution site creates an integrated Reverse 911 system which dynamically selects the alarm systems and the wireless coverage area to encompass the present extent of the hazard and can provide advanced warning to individuals located in an area that extends beyond the present hazard extent area.

  • Patent number: 8391826
    Abstract: The present Reverse 911 Alarm System implements a central alarm distribution site that is capable of generating an alarm indication to warn individuals of a hazard and propagating the alarm indication to selected individuals via their wireless subscriber devices by the use of wireless multicasting in the existing cellular communication network and/or wireless-based Local Area Networks which are operational in the coverage area of the hazard. The central alarm distribution site dynamically selects the wireless coverage area to encompass the present extent of the hazard and can also provide advanced warning to individuals located in an area that extends beyond the present hazard extent area. The present Reverse 911 Alarm System thereby integrates the operation of the wireless communication network with the 911 and Reverse 911 services to provide efficient and comprehensive distribution of alarm indications to the individuals who are impacted by an emergency situation.

  • Patent number: 7889066
    Abstract: The present Self-Configuring Alarm System uses a decentralized (ad hoc or mesh) architecture where any node is capable of autonomously reporting the alarm event directly to all other nodes in the ad hoc network independent of where the alarm event occurred. In addition, the Self-Configuring Alarm System includes a plurality of autonomous output devices which function to provide an audible alarm that directs the occupants to the location of the hazard and/or provides an indication of the nature of the detected hazard or whether an indication of the hazard has been received at a Public Safety Answering Point (PSAP) that serves the dwelling or locale. The alarm networks and output networks may not be coextensive in their coverage areas.

  • Publication number: 20100240298
    Abstract: The Network For Multi-Media Management enables a reverse path feedback architecture wherein the forward path multicasted content can be dynamically modified as a result of end user interaction or feedback. End users in the Network For Multi-Media Management are grouped via location or region, together with personal attributes such as demographic, socio-graphic, or psychographic interests as it relates to a given multicasted content stream. The pairing of physical location groupings with personal interest attributes enables new and novel telecommunication services with the attendant advantage of extremely efficient delivery. The wireless communication network's capacity utilization, both in terms of assets and spectrum, is very high.

  • Patent number: 7504937
    Abstract: The present self-configuring alarm network uses a decentralized (ad hoc or mesh) architecture that does not have a centralized “master” node. In this ad hoc network, any node is capable of behaving as if it were the “master node” by autonomously reporting the alarm event directly to all other nodes in the ad hoc network independent of where the alarm event occurred. The network of alarm devices, therefore, can spread the alarm indication to the entirety of the area covered by the network of alarm devices and can also differentiate between a general alarm indication and the locus of the alarm event.
