  • Publication number: 20220182327
    Abstract: This disclosure is directed to system to monitor and control data flow in a network. At least one device in a core network may be responsible for charging functions related to the data requests. During certain high usage scenarios (e.g., emergencies, special events, etc.), it may be possible for the charging system to be overwhelmed. For example, a policing system may be implemented in the core network to at least manage the flow of requests to the charging system. The policing system may monitor and control request flow to the charging system based on at least one policy. When a request is determined to violate a policy, the policing system may take corrective action to prevent the charging system from being overwhelmed. For example, the policing system may block the request, divert the request to another charging system that may have available capacity, etc.

  • Patent number: 10876845
    Abstract: Embodiments are generally directed to personalized smart navigation for motor vehicles. An embodiment of a smart navigation system for a motor vehicle includes a plurality of sensors of the motor vehicle to detect internal conditions, external conditions, or both for a motor vehicle; a controller to receive sensor data from the plurality of sensors, the sensor data including vehicle condition data, external conditions data, or both; and a navigation system to determine a route for an operator of the motor vehicle. Determination of the route by the navigation system is based at least in part on current conditions data received from a plurality of sources, the current conditions data including the navigation data for the navigation system and sensor data from the plurality of sensors.

  • Patent number: 7780529
    Abstract: A system for monitoring game play is disclosed. The system includes at least one gaming device adapted to present a game to a player and generate game play data. A communication link is provided between the gaming device and a host over which game play data, including player information, is transmitted. The host is adapted to store, manipulate, display and otherwise use the data. In one embodiment, the host is arranged to generate an interface for display by a display device. Game play information is displayed with the interface. In one embodiment, game play information regarding one or more gaming machines is displayed real-time by the interface. Filters may be used upon and reports generated using the game play information. In one embodiment, the system includes one or more portable, hand-held devices for displaying the interface and information.
