  • Patent number: 9246822
    Abstract: Methods for providing layered gear mechanism to enable optimal transmission of data packets includes identifying types of data that are scheduled for transmission over a network. Data packets are generated at different depths for a particular type of data identified for transmission, wherein the data packets are generated at a source. The data packets of different depths are transmitted in different layers over a network, to a destination, wherein each layer of data packets corresponds to a specific depth. Response for the data packets transmitted in each layer is collected from the network as the data packets progress along the network. The response is analyzed to identify network transmission characteristics for each layer. A depth is selected for transmitting subsequent data packets for the particular data type based on the network transmission characteristics obtained through the analysis.

  • Patent number: 9183025
    Abstract: Systems and algorithm for providing a service to a client includes defining a virtual infrastructure in which a plurality of virtual machines are running on a virtualization layer with at least one of the virtual machine executing an image processor algorithm. The image processor algorithm is configured to access framebuffer data of a specific virtual machine that includes the service to be controlled, process the framebuffer data to generate image data packets with contextual information by scanning the framebuffer data to discern the image of the virtual machine display, evaluate the framebuffer data to identify contiguous areas of activity, extract data related to the contiguous areas of activity and package the extracted data into image data packets. The image data packets are transmitted to the client for presenting on a display device of the client.

The image processor algorithm is configured to access framebuffer data of a specific virtual machine that includes the service to be controlled, process the framebuffer data to generate image data packets with contextual information by scanning the framebuffer data to discern the image of the virtual machine display, obtaining connection parameters and client characteristics of a connection to the client, analyzing the framebuffer data to balance performance of the connection and performance of the specific virtual machine, and selecting a compression technique for processing the framebuffer data to generate image data packets. The image data packets are transmitted to the client for presenting on a display device.

  • Patent number: 8774043
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for providing layered gear mechanism to analyze network loss and latency conditions includes bundling data into data packets of varying depths, at a source with data packets of each depth belonging to a particular data type. The data packets of varying depths are transmitted in layers over a network, to a destination. Information for the transmitted data packets for each layer is collected constantly and analyzed as the data progresses along the network to identify corresponding network transmission characteristics. The transmission of subsequent data packets for anyone of the layers is adjusted based on the network transmission characteristics. The adjusting is repeated one or more times based on the analyzed information for the transmitted data packets. The transition metrics for each layer is utilized for relative analysis of transmission metrics across the layers to set the adjusting.

  • Patent number: 8676949
    Abstract: Methods for controlling a virtualized computer service remotely through a client includes receiving a connection request from the client for controlling the virtual service available at a virtual machine. The request includes a plurality of connection parameters that describe the connection requirements of the client and is received at a virtual machine that is equipped with an image processor algorithm. The connection parameters are interrogated using the image processor algorithm to identify a specific virtual machine that provides the requested virtualized computer service. A framebuffer data for the identified virtual machine located in virtual memory is accessed and read directly through a hypervisor. The framebuffer data is processed into a plurality of image data packets using the image processor algorithm and transmitted to the client for presenting on a display device associated with the client.
