    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus for Internet Protocol security (IPsec) selector coalescing for per-host Security Associations (SAs) are disclosed. In one aspect, separate per-host SAs are assigned, by a network communications device including one or more processors, to each of two or more different source communication devices that each communicates with corresponding destination devices. While the separate per-host SAs are assigned to each of the two or more different source communication devices, a group SA is generated. The group SA is assigned, by the network communications device, to all of the two or more different source communication devices. The assignment of the separate per-host SAs is removed from each of the two or more different source communication devices.

  • Patent number: 10716017
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, for telecommunications network troubleshooting. In one aspect, a method includes obtaining multiple current observations characterizing current operation of a telecommunications network, the multiple observations including performance monitoring data for the network and quality of service data for the network. One or more prior network states for the network are obtained. A current state of the network is determined, by a machine learning model, based on the current observations and the one or more prior network states. One or more actions are performed based on the current state of the network, including, when the current state of the network is an abnormal state, taking an action that is mapped to the abnormal state.

  • Publication number: 20190318238
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus, including computer programs encoded on a computer storage medium, for an artificial intelligence system. In one aspect, a system includes multiple artificial intelligence skill agents that have each been trained to perform different actions in a telecommunications system. The system also includes an orchestrator agent that interacts with each of the artificial intelligence skill agents and coordinates which of the artificial intelligence agents performs actions in response to user inputs. The orchestrator agent receives a user input and determines an intent expressed by the user input. The orchestrator agent transmits an instruction to an artificial intelligence skill agent to perform an action that provides a response to the intent. In response to receiving the instruction from the orchestrator agent, the artificial intelligence skill agent performs the action when the artificial intelligence skill agent is capable of carrying out the action.

  • Publication number: 20190090057
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to an audio processing device. This device comprises an audio processing component, e.g. DSP, a microprocessor, memory and a communication interface. Said microprocessor receives via said communication interface two or more listening profiles from personal devices of two or more persons. Said microprocessor comprises means for calculating a combined listening profile out of the two or more received listening profiles and means for calculating a compensation gain profile out of the combined listening profile. Said audio processing component makes use of the compensation gain profile to adapt the audio processing to the listening deficits of the two or more persons who are jointly consuming the audio presentation from the audio processing device.

  • Patent number: 10104489
    Abstract: A smartphone having two microphones is used for determining the direction of a loudspeaker in a surround system setup. This is performed using smartphone rotation in azimuth and polar angle direction while capturing in its microphones a test signal from a current one of the loudspeakers. From the microphone signals a corresponding TDOA value is calculated, and the smartphone is rotated until that TDOA value is nearly zero, resulting in a loudspeaker direction information.
