  • Patent number: 9246822
    Abstract: Methods for providing layered gear mechanism to enable optimal transmission of data packets includes identifying types of data that are scheduled for transmission over a network. Data packets are generated at different depths for a particular type of data identified for transmission, wherein the data packets are generated at a source. The data packets of different depths are transmitted in different layers over a network, to a destination, wherein each layer of data packets corresponds to a specific depth. Response for the data packets transmitted in each layer is collected from the network as the data packets progress along the network. The response is analyzed to identify network transmission characteristics for each layer. A depth is selected for transmitting subsequent data packets for the particular data type based on the network transmission characteristics obtained through the analysis.

  • Patent number: 8775654
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods and apparatus for effectively mediating communications between entities in a computer network. In general, a format preference for a first service is received into a message interchange network. The format preference specifies an expected format for messages received by such first service without specifying a format for any other services. The format preference for the first service is then stored in a repository associated with the message interchange network. Messages sent to the first service are then mediated using the format preference stored for the first service so that the first service receives messages in the expected format specified by the format preference stored for the first service.

  • Patent number: 8774043
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for providing layered gear mechanism to analyze network loss and latency conditions includes bundling data into data packets of varying depths, at a source with data packets of each depth belonging to a particular data type. The data packets of varying depths are transmitted in layers over a network, to a destination. Information for the transmitted data packets for each layer is collected constantly and analyzed as the data progresses along the network to identify corresponding network transmission characteristics. The transmission of subsequent data packets for anyone of the layers is adjusted based on the network transmission characteristics. The adjusting is repeated one or more times based on the analyzed information for the transmitted data packets. The transition metrics for each layer is utilized for relative analysis of transmission metrics across the layers to set the adjusting.

  • Publication number: 20120317493
    Abstract: Methods and system for enabling locally generated transition graphics interaction with virtualized host computer service includes receiving a control command issued by a user to control screen data currently being rendered at the display device, at a display device of a client device. The control command is transmitted to the host computer service for processing. The host computer service processes the control command and returns updated screen data to the client device. In response to the receipt of the updated screen data, the client device identifies a desired screen effect associated with the control command. The updated screen data received from the host computer service is packaged at the client device with data associated with the desired screen effect to generate a visual response at the client device. The packaged screen effect is returned to the display device for rendering, in response to the control command.

  • Patent number: 5678039
    Abstract: A Software Translation Kit (STK) system having a shell, TShell, coupled to an Export/Import module and various Editors is described. The Export/Import module itself includes a parsing engine to extract strings and translatable information from application programs. It functions as a front end parser to "translatable" sources, providing data conversion as needed. The STK system provides a standard interface and set of tools which can be used to localize graphic user interface products. By employing a datacentric approach, the system provides a standard platform which allows translators to act independently of the product they are translating.
