  • Publication number: 20200235833
    Abstract: Systems and methods for classifying interference in data signals received by a terminal device (or other end-user or endpoint device) transacting data in a data transfer network are disclosed. Embodiments include defining an array of signal quality metrics at the terminal device, where each signal quality metric is associated with a subcarrier of a data channel used to transfer data with the data transfer network. The array of signal quality metrics may be input to a classification model and the classification model may output a type, sources, and/or cause of disruptions such as interference identified in the signal quality data. In some cases, the output may include frequency characteristics such as a center frequency and/or bandwidth of the identified signal disruption. The terminal device may transmit a message to an upstream device of the data transfer network, which may indicate the identified interference.

  • Publication number: 20200021134
    Abstract: A system and method for data collection and aggregation using a distributed network of communications enabled sensors connected to another primary network to achieve a secondary out-of-band monitoring perspective, for example, in power grids. The data collection system includes an aggregation and processing server configured to collect data from a variety of sensors adjacent to the monitored network each sensor includes secondary power such that it can continue data transmission even during power grid outages. The data collection system includes a method for secure real-time data ingest, machine learning enabled analysis, risk assessment, and anomaly detection on a broad geographic scale irrespective of isolated network boundaries.

  • Publication number: 20200022005
    Abstract: An ad-hoc wireless network is implemented by a plurality of wireless access points to detect and report failure of a concurrently implemented conventional network. The wireless access points collect and store network status information of the conventional network and send the network status information to a centralized emergency manager when failure of the conventional network is detected. The ad-hoc wireless network may also provide backhaul connectivity to a wireless access point of the failed conventional network for emergency communication.

  • Publication number: 20190356572
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A user may select a cable modem (CM) at a graphical user interface (GUI) of a network device for testing. The network device may receive the indication of a selected query from GUI and transmit the selected query to the CM. The network device may receive a response message from the CM and compare the response message to an expected response message. The network device may generate a report indicating a status of the CM based on the comparing. The status of the CM may relate to a compliance of the CM to a standard. Additionally or alternatively, the status of the CM may indicate a performance level of the CM.

  • Publication number: 20190319718
    Abstract: A transmitter is configured to transmit data to a receiver over a communications network. The transmitter includes a memory for storing computer-executable instructions and a processor in operable communication with the memory. The processor is configured to (i) collect spectrum data of a spectral band over a first sampling interval, and (ii) store the collected spectrum data in the memory. The transmitter further includes a common path distortion (CPD) detection unit configured to (i) sample the collected spectrum data, over a second sampling interval less than the first sampling interval, for a plurality of sub-bands within the spectral band, (ii) analyze the spectral band and each sub-band for indications of common path distortion, and (iii) inject a test signal configured for detection at a headend of the communications network. The transmitter further includes a modem portion configured to operably communicate with the headend and the receiver.

  • Publication number: 20190166495
    Abstract: Authenticating a device is contemplated. The authenticating may include generating an authentication sufficient to represent trust in an identity of a device when being provisioned or re-provisioned for network access, reconciling inventory management and/or otherwise performing operations dependent on trust.

  • Publication number: 20190109760
    Abstract: Grafting segments of a network together to mitigate service disruptions associated with impairments, maintenance, etc., is contemplated. The grafting may include instantiating a wired and/or wireless graft to facilitate connecting an impaired portion of a network to an unimpaired portion, such as to reestablish services at the impaired portion via the graft to the unimpaired portion.
