  • Publication number: 20240048998
    Abstract: A device may calculate a PRB seasonal strength based on PRB data from base stations, and may scale and normalize the PRB data based on the PRB seasonal strength. The device may calculate and combine FFTs for the normalized and scaled PRB data, may calculate a z-score for the combined FFT, and may calculate FFT IQRs for frequencies of the combined FFT. The device may filter the FFT IQRs based on the z-score, may process the FFT IQRs, with a clustering model, to identify clusters of periodic interference patterns, and may aggregate the clusters. The device may identify peak data in the PRB data, and may process the peak data, with a model, to determine a parameter for clustering. The device may process the PRB data, with the clustering model, to identify final clusters of periodic interference patterns, and may perform actions based on the final clusters.

  • Publication number: 20240015469
    Abstract: A device may determine that a first geographical area satisfies an area threshold. The first geographical area includes an estimated location of a source of interference associated with base stations. A first plurality of vertices, of the first geographical area, are based on locations of the base stations. The device may determine a second plurality of vertices. The second plurality of vertices are closer to the estimated location than the first plurality of vertices. The device may provide information regarding the second plurality of vertices and may obtain magnitude information indicating magnitudes of the interference measured at the second plurality of vertices. The device may determine a third plurality of vertices based on the magnitude information. The device may provide information regarding a second geographical area, formed by the third plurality of vertices, to cause a search of the second geographical area to identify the source of the interference.

  • Patent number: 11803424
    Abstract: Systems described herein may allow for the intelligent configuration of containers onto virtualized resources. Different configurations may be generated based on the simulation of alternate placements of containers onto nodes, where the placement of a particular container onto a particular node may serve as a root for several branches which may themselves simulate the placement of additional containers on the node (in addition to the container(s) indicated in the root). Once a set of configurations are generated, a particular configuration may be selected according to determined selection parameters and/or intelligent selection techniques.

  • Publication number: 20230275675
    Abstract: A device may receive time domain PRB data associated with a plurality of base stations of a network, and may transform the time domain PRB data into frequency domain PRB data. The device may identify, based on the frequency domain PRB data, periodic interference patterns associated with the network, and may process periodic data associated with the periodic interference patterns, with a clustering model, to identify clusters of periodic interference patterns. The device may utilize a time offset analysis to link clusters and identify a transient periodic interferer, and may process cluster data associated with the clusters and the transient periodic interferer, and public transportation data, with a machine learning model, to predict a route associated with the transient periodic interferer. The device may perform one or more actions based on the route associated with the transient periodic interferer.

  • Patent number: 11677636
    Abstract: In some implementations, a network monitoring system may measure a traffic metric for a first component of a network device. The network monitoring system may determine, based on a trained component monitoring model, that an obtained measurement of the traffic metric for the first component satisfies a criteria associated with the traffic metric pattern. The network monitoring system may compare, based on determining that the obtained measurement satisfies the criteria, the obtained measurement to a corresponding measurement of the traffic metric for a second component of the network device. The network monitoring system may determine that a measurement difference between the obtained measurement for the first component and the corresponding measurement for the second component satisfies a difference threshold. The network monitoring system may perform, based on the measurement difference satisfying the difference threshold, an action associated with the first component.

  • Patent number: 11659425
    Abstract: A device may receive location information associated with a fixed service satellite station (receiver) configured to communicate via a first radio frequency (RF) band. The device may obtain historical communication data associated with the location and relating to previous communications conducted via a second RF band, of user equipment (UEs). The historical communication data may include historical signal power measurements of the previous communications. The device may adjust the historical signal power measurements to model estimated signal power measurements relating to a UE to communicating via a first RF band. The device may determine, based on the estimated signal power measurements, an interference score associated with a probability of a UE interfering with the receiver when communicating, via a first RF band, with a base station.

  • Patent number: 11635482
    Abstract: An interference detection system in a network identifies a first wireless station that has experienced radio frequency (RF) interference from an unknown source and identifies one or more second wireless stations that have experienced similar interference. A plurality of estimated interference source locations are scored based on a comparison of estimated interference to observed interference at the one or more second wireless stations. A predicted interference source location is identified based on the scored plurality of estimated interference source locations. It is determined whether the unknown interference source is a persistent interference source over a selected time period, wherein the predicted interference source location is identified for each interval in the selected time period.

  • Publication number: 20220338041
    Abstract: A device may receive interference data identifying interference associated with sectors provided by base stations, and may filter interference data associated with sectors with passive intermodulation issues and sectors with alarms related to sectors' radio, from the interference data, to generate interference data for a set of sectors. The device may perform an interference analysis on the sectors' physical resource blocks (PRBs) and receiving branches, of the interference data, to generate analysis results, and may determine interference associated with co-located sectors of the set of sectors. The device may identify neighbor sectors based on the interference, and may compare PRBs of the set of sectors with PRBs of the neighbor sectors to generate comparison results. The device may identify a particular sector that is the most impacted sector when compared to its neighboring and co-located sectors, associated with an interference source, based on the comparison results.
