  • Patent number: 10708828
    Abstract: An access node (20) of a cellular network receives an information centric networking request of a user equipment (10) for a data object. The access node forwards the information centric networking request to a local gateway (30) associated with the access node (20). The local gateway (30) maintains a pending interest table including an entry for each data object having a pending information centric networking request at the local gateway (30). In response to the user equipment (10) moving from a coverage area of the access node (20) to a coverage area of a further access node (21), the access node (20) and the further access node (21) perform a handover procedure. The further access node (21) is associated with a further local gateway (31) maintaining a further pending interest table. The further pending interest table includes an entry for each data object having a pending information centric networking request at the further local gateway (31).

  • Publication number: 20200128103
    Abstract: A first network node, a client device and methods therein, for enabling acquisition and delivery of a resource to the client device in a communications network. When receiving from the client device a meta interest request indicating an interest for a wanted resource, the first network node extracts from the meta interest request one or more filter parameters related to desirable characteristics of the wanted resource. The first network node then obtains identifiers of resources available in the communications network, based on the one or more filter parameters, and sends the obtained identifiers of resources to the client device in response to the received meta interest request. Thereby, a user of the client device can see which resources with the desirable characteristics are available in the network and acquire one of the resources identified in this way, without having to specify the supplier nor the resource in the initial request.

  • Patent number: 10447548
    Abstract: A head-end system and radio head apparatuses are connected to a cable network for wired transmission of radio signals. The head-end system obtains information identifying available IFs, and receives, from a RAN, information identifying communication RFs. The head-end system sends, to the radio head apparatuses, configuration instructions. The head-end system communicates data between the RAN and said radio head apparatuses, via broadcast of one or more radio signals in the cable network, located within the one or more communication IF bands. The radio head apparatuses communicate the data between the head-end system and wireless devices, via the cable network and wirelessly to/from the wireless devices using the communication RFs.

  • Patent number: 10182276
    Abstract: A method and management node for deciding ports suitable to be communicatively connected to each other in a communications network. The communications network comprises an available port communicatively connected to the communications network, and a discovered port that is discovered as being communicatively connected to the communications network. The management node obtains Information associating at least the available port and the discovered port with respective one or more attributes and with a respective attribute identifier identifying the respective one or more attributes. The management node receives, from a port discovering network node, a message comprising the attribute identifier associated with the discovered port. The management node decides that the available port is suitable to be communicatively connected with the discovered port based on that the respective one or more attributes are considered matching.
