  • Publication number: 20180123974
    Abstract: Novel tools and techniques might provide for implementing intent-based network services orchestration. In some embodiments, a computing system might receive, over a network, a request for network services from a customer. The request for network services might include desired performance parameters for the requested network services, without information regarding any of specific hardware, specific hardware type, specific location, or specific network for providing the requested network services. The computing system might allocate network resources from one or more networks, based at least in part on the desired performance parameters. Based on a determination that at least one network can no longer provide at least one network resource having the desired performance parameters, the computing system might allocate at least one other network resource from at least one second network, based at least in part on network performance metrics, and based at least in part on the desired performance parameters.

  • Patent number: 9234533
    Abstract: Provided is a method of and valve assembly for dumping excess fluid during retraction of a cylinder actuator. The method includes pumping fluid with a pump from a piston side of the cylinder to a rod side of the cylinder; opening a first check valve with relatively high pressure fluid from a downstream side of the pump to allow flow into the rod side of the cylinder; and opening an extend relief valve via a first spool with fluid from the downstream side of the pump to allow excess fluid at an upstream side of the pump to return to a reservoir at relatively low pressure.

  • Patent number: 8313920
    Abstract: A method of screening a compound which modulates dipeptidyl peptidase I (DPPI) activities comprises the steps of adding a peptide substrate of DPPI to a reaction mixture which comprises DPPI and a compound, wherein the peptide substrate of DPPI has at least 3 amino acids and binds to a binding site of DPPI in addition to the S1-S2 site; and measuring the molecular weight of the substrate, wherein a change in the molecular weight of the substrate is indicative of the presence of DPPI activity.

  • Patent number: 8224814
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to methods and systems for managing how merchandise listings satisfying a search query are processed and presented to a user of a computer-based trading or e-commerce application when the listings are of heterogeneous types. Consistent with some embodiments, in response to a user-initiated search query, item listings and product listings are displayed intermingled in a set of search results pages. The item listings and product listings are positioned relative to one another, in part, based on a level of demand associated with the product listings and the item listings, where demand is measured by monitoring user-initiated activities in connection with the item and product listings.
