  • Publication number: 20220030338
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies directed to optical networking with hybrid optical vortices are disclosed herein. Embodiments can include a system that is configured to perform operations for optical networking with hybrid optical vortices. The system can include a hybrid optical switch that can communicatively couple with another network device via one or more nanofiber communication paths. The operations can include receiving, from a first nanofiber communication path, a hybrid optical vortex that carries an internet protocol packet. The operations also can include decoupling the hybrid optical vortex to extract an optical vortex that encapsulates the internet protocol packet. The operations also can include switching the internet protocol packet to a subsequent communication path based on the optical vortex that encapsulates the internet protocol packet.

  • Patent number: 10657782
    Abstract: A premises security system can leverage cloud-based analytics and captured information about a visitor at the premises to provide security to the premises. The system can include a sensor, an actuator, and a local processing device. The sensor can capture information about a visitor to the premises without requiring the visitor to provide the information. The actuator can perform an action with respect to the premises. The local processing device can communicatively couple to a cloud-based analytics system that can analyze the information with respect to one or more databases that include criminal history information, and return data representing a risk rating for the visitor or a command to perform the action. The local processing device can, in response to receiving the data, output a command to the actuator to perform the action.

  • Patent number: 10548078
    Abstract: Managing power-consuming resources on a first computing device by adjusting data delivery from a plurality of second computing devices based on a state of the first computing device. The state of the first computing device is provided to the second computing devices to alter the data delivery. In some embodiments, the first computing device provides the second computing devices with actions or commands relating to data delivery based on the device state. For example, the second computing devices are instructed to store the data, forward the data, forward only high priority data, or perform other actions. Managing the data delivery from the second computing devices preserves battery life of the first computing device.

  • Patent number: 8090826
    Abstract: Managing power-consuming resources on a first computing device by time-based and condition-based scheduling of data delivery from a plurality of second computing devices. A scheduler executing on the first computing device has knowledge of recurrent schedules for activation by the second computing devices. The first computing device determines availability of the power-consuming resources and adjusts an activation time for the schedules to use the power-consuming resources when the resources are available. Managing the schedules associated with the second computing devices preserves battery life of the first computing device.

  • Publication number: 20030013430
    Abstract: A wireless e-mail messaging system is disclosed. The wireless e-mail messaging system includes a communications network. The wireless e-mail messaging system also includes a portable electronic device including a transceiver configured to establish a wireless link to the communications network. The portable electronic device includes a wake mode in which the wireless link is established and messages may be sent and received by the portable electronic device and a sleep mode in which the wireless link is not established and messages may not be sent and received by the portable electronic device. The portable electronic device includes a program to randomly select a time to transition from the sleep mode to the wake mode during a predetermined time interval.

  • Patent number: 6185423
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for reducing power consumption in a roaming portable communication device is described. Various embodiments include optimizing a channel acquisition scan, or pre-scan, and a background scan in order to delay the reaction to a suspected loss of coverage to prevent unnecessary roaming and the associated power consumption. A list of received signal strengths is generated for a number of possible channels. Only those channels with a received signal strength above a threshold level are retained. The received signal strength of the remaining possible channels is retested. The selected channel is determined from the remaining possible channels by comparing the received signal strength of the last channel used, the last channel attempted (if available), and a best channel having the highest received signal strength.
