  • Patent number: 9781031
    Abstract: An example method for a device to implement one of the nodes in a wireless network for processing packets includes submitting a request to a network-management system in the network to become a node in the network, after having registered with the network-management system, determining neighboring nodes, flooding the wireless network with a link-state advertisement, the link-state advertisement providing neighboring relationships of the node, constructing switching rules for the node based on a tree switching network portion of the network, processing the packets received by the node with the switching rules, the switching rules defining at least one of (1) an ingress link to a parent node with a power capability greater than the node and (2) egress links to child nodes with a mobility greater than the node, and in response to having determined a failed link to a neighboring node, informing a node at the end of an ingress wireless link and the network-management system of the failed link.

  • Publication number: 20170048395
    Abstract: A system for time deferred usage of mobile data by a plurality of user devices each coupled to a network server and running one or more applications. The system includes a network measurement module, user profiling module and a price-optimization computational module located at the network server and a user interface module located at each user device. The network measurement module collects traffic data from each of the applications to generate the historical congestion data and current congestion data. The user profiling module is configured to receive user reaction data and determine how much mobile data for each application may be deferred to a later point in time to generate the predicted user reaction data.

  • Patent number: 9544623
    Abstract: A system for selecting one of a plurality of video versions in response to a video request by a user of a user device having a processor is disclosed. The system includes a stream selector configured to adaptively select optimized bit-rates by selecting one of the plurality of video versions to deliver to the user device. The stream selector i) estimates an expected future utility of the user at different times during a billing cycle based on a remaining data quota and ii) selects one of the plurality of video versions that maximizes a current utility plus expected future utility of the user at selection time. A user profiler may be configured to perform predictive analysis of user data usage by determining the likelihood of a user requesting a video during each time interval of the user's billing cycle and a video type including utility vector and cost vector information.

  • Publication number: 20160314699
    Abstract: A system and method to optimize learning efficacy and efficiency in an online course is disclosed. In particular, the methods include customizing the sequence of delivery of course content as the course is being delivered, in a way that does not necessitate upfront input from an instructor/author or anyone else, beyond what which would be provided for a standard, non-adaptive course already. The present invention is also directed to a system to implement said customization and individualization methods. The present method is further directed to a linear flow of delivered materials, but the flow is dependent upon student actions in the course, among other conditions. In the present invention, individualized adaptation is based on this input, but can be augmented with additional information provided by instructors, if desired, as well.
