  • Publication number: 20210048112
    Abstract: A check valve can include a pressure actuator or an electromagnetic actuator. The check valve includes a valve inlet, a valve outlet, and flap disposed between the valve inlet and the valve outlet. The check valve has an open state and a closed state. The pressure actuator in fluid communication with the valve inlet. The check valve has an open state and a closed state. The check valve is configured to allow an input gas to flow from the valve inlet to the valve outlet when the check valve is in the open state. The check valve is configured to preclude the input gas from flowing from the valve inlet to the valve outlet when the check valve is in the closed state. Upon actuation of the pressure actuator or the electromagnetic actuator, the flap moves away from the valve inlet to allow the inlet gas to move from the valve inlet to the valve outlet.

  • Patent number: 10182127
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for the caching of content prior to the content being requested. A request for desired content may be received from a client application at a caching server. The request may also indicate additional content related to the desired content that may be subsequently requested by the client application. The indicated additional content (and the desired content, if not already cached) is retrieved from an origin server. The desired content is transmitted to the client application at the user device, and the additional content is cached at the caching server. Subsequently, a second request may be received from the client application that includes a request for the additional content. The additional content, which is now cached at the caching server, is served to the client application by the caching server in response to the second request (rather than being retrieved from the origin server).

  • Publication number: 20190007308
    Abstract: In various embodiments, methods and systems for implementing distributed traffic management are provided. A data request from a content server is accessed using a content serving agent. The data request is determined to be associated with a corresponding network link based on referencing an exterior protocol topology file. The exterior gateway protocol topology file includes a mapping of Internet Protocol (IP) prefixes to corresponding router-network-link identifiers indicating a router interface. A router-network-link identifier and one or more local control actions for the data request are identified using the control output file that includes a mapping between the router-network-link identifier and the one or more local control actions. Utilization data for the router-network-link identifier is accessed using the utilization data file. The utilization data is determined to be associated with executing one or more local control actions.

  • Patent number: 10154729
    Abstract: An articulating support arm includes a base, a first set of control arms having proximal ends and distal ends, with the proximal ends of the first set of control arms being pivotally connected to the base. The support arm further includes a second set of control arms having proximal ends and distal ends, with the proximal ends of the second set of control arms being disposed forward of and pivotally connected to the distal ends of the first set of control arms. The distal ends of the second set of control arms also are pivotally connected to a control head, and a locking assembly selectively prevents pivotal movement of the control arms, so as to provide vertical adjustment of the control head relative to the base.
