  • Publication number: 20180146060
    Abstract: System and techniques for network coding in an information centric network (ICN) are described herein. A request for a first portion of first named data may be received. A response to the request for the first portion of the first named data may be obtained. The first portion may be combined with a second portion for second named data to create a set of network coded responses. Names for members of the set of network coded responses may be created based on a first name for the first portion and a second name for the second portion. A response to the request may be made with the set of network coded responses using the names for members of the set of network coded responses.

  • Patent number: 9807592
    Abstract: The increasing amount of internet traffic from video streaming services, in addition to users requesting more personalized content and creating/sharing video content, has led to a huge demand for highly scalable and efficient distribution of video content, especially with mobile computing devices. Embodiments provide a network and service infrastructure better suited to these video content distribution and mobility needs. More intelligence is provided in the network infrastructure through an awareness of the user status/activity, end-user device, and content characteristics in correlation with the network bandwidth conditions. In this view of adding more intelligence in the network, additional communication is utilized between the service platform and the network to identify content characteristics (e.g., video content, content encoding characteristics), network characteristics, and device characteristics.

  • Patent number: 9554305
    Abstract: Embodiments of User Equipment (UE) and methods to support reception of content for use by an application supported by a Port Control Protocol (PCP) client are disclosed herein. The UE may receive, from a PCP server, a first portion of video content for use by the application during a first time period. The UE may send a PCP update message that includes one or more mobility status parameters. The UE may receive a second portion of the video content for use by the application during a second time period. The first and second portions of the video content may be received from a first and a second mobility anchor, which may operate as relays for the PCP server. The second mobility anchor may be determined based on a referred IP prefix included in the PCP date update message.

  • Publication number: 20160050246
    Abstract: A quality-aware rate adaptation algorithm is described to optimize the quality of experience (QoE) for a DASH client. Requesting media at a bitrate higher than the available network bandwidth can lead to re-buffering events that disrupt user experience, while requesting media at lower bitrates may lead to sub-optimum streaming quality. The quality-aware algorithm tries to optimize the QoE of a DASH client by maintaining a better trade-off between buffer levels and quality fluctuations.

  • Patent number: 7415245
    Abstract: An ultrawideband radio frequency pulse is generated by shaping a carrier signal having a selected frequency with a window function. The shaped carrier is gated to produce the ultrawideband pulse. In further embodiments, the window function comprises a sinusoidal function, and the ultrawideband pulse is formed via a mixer and a CMOS radio frequency switch.
