  • Patent number: 11516248
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention relate to, in general, detecting and mitigating malicious communications. Typically, a system of the present invention is configured to deliver indicators of compromise in response to identifying and isolating malicious communication. Moreover, the system is configured to analyze an electronic communication to determine if it is malicious or if it has a malicious payload. In some embodiments, the system is configured to determine an indicator of compromise for the electronic communication determined to be malicious, and transmit this indicator of compromise to the first networked device. In some embodiments, the system transmits a threat trigger signal to a third party provider. The threat trigger signal is configured to allow an application or system provided by the third party provider to block a threat caused by the electronic communication. In some embodiments, the system provides training to help users better identify and report threats.

  • Patent number: 11464009
    Abstract: A method of routing a first signal in a telecommunication network is disclosed. The telecommunication network comprises plural nodes and uses time-division multiple access (TDMA) frames, with each TDMA frame divided into time slots and each time slot is divided into subslots. The method includes the step of transmitting a first signal from an initiating node in a first subslot. The method further includes the step of receiving the first signal at other nodes in the network in the first subslot, wherein the first signal is retransmitted in a second subslot subsequent to the first subslot. An improvement in the method includes the step of preparing for the retransmission at least one of a time-dispersed first signal or time-dispersed algorithmically related first signal by two or more nodes via a controller.

  • Patent number: 11424970
    Abstract: Optimal GMSK training sequences are generated by applying a base sequence to the in-phase component of the even samples and rotating the base sequence by 2k-1 and applying the second sequence to the quadrature component of the odd samples. Using the optimal GMSK training sequence a channel estimate can be generated. Filtering the channel estimate converts the channel impulse response to one that can be used with a non-GMSK signal e.g. PSK or QAM.
