  • Patent number: 11185705
    Abstract: An enhanced RF switchable filtered feedthrough for real-time identification of the electrical and physical integrity of an implanted AIMD lead includes a DOUBLE POLE RF switch disposed on the device side. Additionally, the RF switchable filtered feedthrough can optionally include transient voltage suppressors (TVS) and an MRI mode. In an embodiment, a DOUBLE POLE RF switch selectively disconnects EMI filter capacitors so that an RF test/interrogation signal is sent from the AIMD down into an implanted lead(s). The reflected RF signal is then analyzed to assess implanted lead integrity including lead body anomalies, lead insulation defects, and/or lead conductor defects. The Double Pole switch is configured to be controlled by an AIMD control signal to switch between FIRST and SECOND THROW positions.

  • Publication number: 20210367975
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and apparatuses may include a network onboarding manager for configuring network security features at application hosting sites of a service provider network, for instance, as part of a procedure for deploying an application onto the service provider network. The network onboarding manager may generate a security profile for the application. The security profile may include information indicating a security posture of the application with respect to network security features needed to deploy the application, which the system may use to generate and send configuration data to the hosting sites. One or more operations may be performed based on a user input received at a developer portal (e.g., via a user interface), or automatically based on one or more API calls made by the network onboarding manager and/or based on one or more security profile templates.

  • Patent number: 11030858
    Abstract: An electronic gaming machine includes a game display with a graphical user interface (GUI) configured to receive an input from a player and a game controller. The game controller is configured to execute instructions stored in a memory. The instructions cause the game controller to control the GUI to present a selectable tournament button that causes the game controller to enter the player into a tournament. Upon receiving a tournament button selection a plurality of selectable tournament game options for the game tournament are displayed. The GUI receives a tournament game response indicating a the tournament game selected and the tournament game is displayed. A return button is displayed that returns the display to the base game and maintains player progress in the tournament.

  • Patent number: 10904950
    Abstract: Techniques for proxy based network access are discussed herein. In some examples, the techniques can be implemented in a network proxy device for Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS). A base station or a domain proxy device may manage or otherwise use CBRS resources by exchanging signaling messages with a Spectrum Access System (SAS). The base station or domain proxy device may transmit signaling messages in a first private network to a network device bridging the first private network and a second private network with limited access to a public network. The network device send proxy message(s) in response to the signaling messages to the SAS and can establish an encrypted session layer or application layer tunnel between the base station and/or domain proxy device. The proxy based network access preserves secure networks while still allowing limited messaging with other public or private networks.
