  • Publication number: 20210352574
    Abstract: A method, a device, and a non-transitory storage medium are described in which a mapping table is transmitted to a user device. The mapping table includes, for each entry, an index, a frequency band, and wireless services available on the frequency band. Index information corresponding to a frequency band and wireless service available in a location associated with the user device is communicated to the user device. An icon associated with the wireless service is displayed on a display of the user device. A network device determines that the user device is using the wireless service to communicate via a wireless network and transmits, to a core network, an indication that the user device is using the wireless service on the frequency band.

  • Patent number: 11165873
    Abstract: A method for endpoint device service scaling may include identifying, at a repository device, an endpoint device that is attached to a network; and determining, at the repository device, whether the endpoint device is connected to an external display. The method may include determining, at the repository device, profile data associated with the external display in response to determining that the endpoint device is connected to an external display; and identifying, at the repository device, a connection that provides network access to the endpoint device. The method may further include specifying a service based on at least one of the profile data or the identified connection.

  • Publication number: 20210084699
    Abstract: A computer device may include a memory storing instructions and processor configured to execute the instructions to generate a Radio Access Network (RAN) slice in a Fifth Generation (5G) New Radio (NR) base station designated for a particular type of service; determine requirements associated with the generated RAN slice; and reserve resources of the 5G NR base station for the generated RAN slice, wherein reserving the resources includes specifying one or more antenna beams generated by the 5G NR base station. The processor may be further configured to obtain criteria for categorizing user equipment (UE) device sessions as belonging to the generated RAN slice; identify UE device sessions as belonging to the RAN slice based on the obtained criteria; and apply the determined requirements to the identified UE device session using the reserved resources.

  • Patent number: 10951497
    Abstract: A device may configure a centralized performance indicator data store for a plurality of network function devices included in a telecommunications system. The centralized performance indicator data store may be accessible by the plurality of network function devices on a management bus of the telecommunications system via a service-based interface. The device may subscribe the centralized performance indicator data store to a message class associated with performance indicator data that is generated by the plurality of network function devices. The device may receive, from the plurality of network function devices, one or more published communications associated with the message class. The one or more published communications may include the performance indicator data. The device may store the performance indicator data in the centralized performance indicator data store.

  • Publication number: 20210058386
    Abstract: A device may receive data relating to a site plan and image data relating to a network device. The device may determine a device identifier based on the image data, associate the device identifier with the site plan based on a common attribute between the network device and the site plan, and cause a certificate to be generated based on an authentication request to a network controller. The authentication request may cause the network controller to generate the certificate based on the device identifier and/or the site plan. The device may cause an Internet protocol (IP) address to be assigned to the network device based on the certificate, a location of the network device, and/or another related parameter, cause a node configuration to be generated based on the IP address, the device identifier, and/or the site plan, and provision the network device according to the node configuration.

  • Patent number: 10686723
    Abstract: A method for determining a Quality of Service (QoS) policy can be based on requested bandwidth. The method may initially receive a connection request which includes a requested bandwidth that corresponds to an application. The method may then determine a policy for an application data flow associated with the application based on the connection request. A bandwidth designation, which is based on the requested bandwidth, may be assigned to the application data flow based on the determined policy. Finally, the policy and the bandwidth designation may be provided so that a bearer can be assigned.
