  • Publication number: 20160366632
    Abstract: A more efficient network can be achieved using a network-based controller to configure routing tables to route data traffic to and from transmission points. Dynamic partitioning of network resources between the transmission points and a backhaul can be performed in conjunction with a resource scheduler of a network-based controller. The scheduler can relay scheduling metrics or benefit metrics from the network-based controller to the transmission points. Backhaul route optimization can also be used to select relay transmission points based upon conditions being determined to be satisfied.

  • Publication number: 20160323067
    Abstract: A system is enabled to perform error checking and other HARQ processes at a remote radio unit device in cloud RAN systems that have a large front haul latency. The remote radio unit device performs error checking on transmissions received from a mobile device and sends an acknowledgement (ACK) or negative acknowledgement (NACK) to the mobile device based on whether errors are found.

  • Patent number: 9237467
    Abstract: A method includes monitoring, at a base station of a wireless network, channel quality information corresponding to a wireless channel used by the base station to stream media content to a communication device. The media content is streamed to the communication device at a particular effective transfer rate via data bursts. The method includes selecting, at the base station, a size of a data burst to send to the communication device and a download rate for the data burst. The size and the data rate are based on the channel quality information. The method also includes sending the data burst to the communication device at a first time from the base station.

  • Publication number: 20150381706
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies disclosed herein are directed to collaborative media playback. According to one aspect disclosed herein, a media playback node can receive information for use in determining a start time for playback of media content so that playback of the media content is in sync with playback of the media content by a further playback node. The media playback node also can determine, based at least in part upon the information, the start time for playback of the media content. The media playback node also can initiate playback of the media content at the start time.

  • Patent number: 9084176
    Abstract: A core network device may be configured to work with a radio access network device to determine whether to allow access to a network. Criteria that may be used to make the determination include the condition of devices and links within the core network and the radio access network, which may be determined by data received from other devices at the core network device. In another embodiment, the type of service requested, for example whether the request is for an IMS service or non-IMS service, may be used to evaluate whether the a request for access to the network should be permitted.

  • Patent number: 8504067
    Abstract: A central host performs an automated method of updating multiple remote devices. In one embodiment, the host recognizes a predetermined download time and, in advance of the download time, transmits a calendar update to multiple remote devices. The calendar update includes the download time, and the remote devices may utilize the download time to set calendar reminders for entering an active state. Within a short time after reaching the download time, the host pushes download data to the remote devices by broadcasting the download data. In one aspect, the host may receive message acknowledgements from remote devices in response to a first calendar update, and the host may automatically transmit additional calendar updates to any remote devices that did not receive the first calendar update. Additional embodiments involve related methods and the terminal devices that receive the updates.
