  • Publication number: 20200344617
    Abstract: Disclosed is a system and methods for creating and maintaining a virtual subnetwork of telecommunication base stations within a wider telecommunication network. In an LTE-based example, the subnetwork includes a connection aggregator that is coupled between the plurality of eNodeBs internal to the subnetwork and one or more MMEs in the outer network. The connection aggregator intercepts all control plane messages between the MMEs and the internal eNodeBs, remaps eNodeB identifiers, and transmits repackaged messages so that the outer network sees the entire subnetwork as a single “giant” eNodeB. The disclosed system and methods enables the operator of the virtual subnetwork to add and shut down eNodeBs as demand for connectivity fluctuates, and to do so such that all changes are unseen by the outer network.

  • Publication number: 20200137594
    Abstract: Disclosed is a virtual wireless base station that can dynamically scale its capacity to meet changes in demand for connectivity. The virtual wireless base station includes a plurality of virtual baseband modules, a plurality of interface/router modules, an orchestrator module and a fabric mapper module. Each of the plurality of virtual baseband modules is coupled to the interface/router modules by a low latency switch fabric. The orchestrator determines current and near future demand for connectivity within the virtual wireless base station and either instantiates and connects new virtual baseband processors to meet a rise in demand, or shuts down underutilized virtual baseband processors in case of insufficient demand.

    Abstract: A system for surgical planning and assessment of spinal deformity correction is provided that has a spinal imaging system and a control unit. The spinal imaging system is configured to collect at least one digitized position of one or more vertebral bodies of a subject. The control unit is configured to receive the at least one digitized position, and calculate, based on the at least one digitized position, an optimized posture for the subject. The control unit is configured to receive one or more simulated spinal correction inputs, and based on the inputs and optimized posture, predict an optimal simulated postoperative surgical correction.

  • Publication number: 20190355194
    Abstract: A method for access control of premises having a plurality of units includes receiving a selection of one or more units of the plurality of units associated with the premises from a first user via a primary interface device communicatively coupled to a network. The method also includes sending a call to one or more secondary interface devices based on the selection. The one or more secondary interface devices can be located in the one or more selected units. Further, the method includes monitoring for a trigger condition after the call is sent to the secondary interface device. Upon occurrence of the trigger condition, the method also includes forwarding, via the primary interface device, the call to a mobile device of a second user associated with the one or more units.

  • Publication number: 20190308741
    Abstract: A micro-auxiliary power unit for supplying electric power to a vehicle includes a thermal resistant enclosure having an intake duct for receiving air, and a source of fuel. A fuel valve is fluidly coupled from the enclosure, and the fuel valve is movable between an opened position and a closed position. The micro-auxiliary power unit includes a Wankel engine to drive an output shaft and a starter-generator coupled to the output shaft to generate electric power. The micro-auxiliary power unit includes a system that has at least one sensor disposed within the enclosure that observes a condition of the enclosure and generates sensor signals, and a controller having a processor that receives the sensor signals, determines the presence of a thermal event within the enclosure and based on the determination, outputs one or more control signals to the fuel valve to move the fuel valve to the closed position.

  • Patent number: 10439933
    Abstract: Services can be isolated across a single physical network interface. A gateway that is installed at the user's premises can include a single inbound port over which multiple services can be provided to the premises. The gateway can evaluate all outbound frames that are received at the port to identify to which service they pertain and then tag the frames with an identifier assigned to the service. This tagging will enable the frames to be delivered to the intended service provider. When the gateway receives an inbound frame, it can strip the identifier from the frame and forward it over the single inbound port regardless of the service to which it pertains. In this way, multiple services that are provided to the user's premises can remain isolated on the wide area network even though they are provided over the same physical medium on the user's local area network.

  • Patent number: 10405650
    Abstract: Systems for heating or cooling a food service container to an appropriate temperature for service or transport, and cabinets including such systems. A first manifold allows a seal to be made against a first surface of one or more Peltier chips and defines a flow path for a heat transfer fluid which directly contacts the first surfaces of the Peltier chips. The fluid circulates through tubing from the first manifold to a first radiator. A second opposite manifold defines a flow path for a heat transfer fluid which directly contacts the second surfaces of the Peltier chips. The fluid then circulates through tubing from the second manifold to a second radiator. The first radiator may be disposed inside, and the second radiator outside, the cabinet. Application of current in a first direction to the Peltier chips can heat the cabinet and reversal of the current may cool the cabinet.
