  • Patent number: 8687512
    Abstract: A system or method that receives a current request from a client, and responds to the current request based on signal strength associated with a previous request. If the current request is received on a non-preferred communication band, and a previous request was received on a preferred communication band within a pre-determined time, the system determines whether the signal strength associated with the previous request is weaker than a pre-determined threshold signal strength level for the preferred communication band. If so, the system responds to the current request. Otherwise, the system ignores the current request. If no recent request on the preferred communication band is received, and the signal strength associated with the current request is weaker than a pre-determined threshold signal strength level for the non-preferred communication band, the system responds to the current request on the non-preferred communication band. Otherwise, the system ignores the current request.

  • Publication number: 20130248608
    Abstract: A method of forming an electrically-conductive pattern includes selectively electroplating the top portions of a substrate that corresponds to the pattern, and separating the conductive pattern from the substrate. The electroplating may also include electrically connecting the conductive pattern to an electrical component. Conductive ink, such as ink including carbon particles, may be selectively placed on the conductive substrate to facilitate plating of the desired pattern and/or to facilitate separation of the pattern from the substrate. An example of a conductive pattern is an antenna for a radio-frequency identification (RFID) device such as a label or a tag. One example of an electrical component that may be electrically connected to the antenna, is an RFID strap or chip.

  • Patent number: 8539055
    Abstract: According to embodiments of the present disclosure, a managed network device assigns to itself an IP address, in absence of a DHCP service, in a link local address space within a wireless network. The system further responds to a network frame received from another device based on the assigned IP address in the link local address space. The network frame can be a network traffic frame, a control path frame, and/or a management frame. The control path frame comprises a source IP address and a destination IP address that correspond to internal IP addresses in the link local address space that are self-assigned by managed network devices. The management frame comprises the self-assigned internal IP address for the managed network device, and provides for management of managed network devices in the wireless network through a single IP address when a virtual controller is configured for the wireless network.

  • Patent number: 8538387
    Abstract: Single voicemail for dual-mode phones. Functionality is added to a dual-mode phone such that the dual-mode phone when operating in cellular mode sends a predetermined signal when it answers an incoming call. An enterprise mobility controller, on forwarding a call to the cellular side of a dual-mode phone after failing to complete a Wi-Fi connection, starts a timer. If the mobility controller does not receive the predetermined signal before the timer expires, it assumes that the cellular call has been handed off to the cellular voicemail system, terminates the cellular call, and sends the call to the enterprise voicemail system.

  • Publication number: 20130201979
    Abstract: The present disclosure discloses a method and system for partitioning WLAN in order to separate network traffic from different WLANs. Specifically, a network device receives a packet from a client connected to a first network device on an access network. The network device then determines that the received packet is associated with a VLAN that is pre-configured on the first network device based on the access network to which the client is connected. Furthermore, the network device transmits the packet to a MAC layer switching device, which is not configured with the VLAN that is pre-configured on the network device. The packet includes one of a DHCP discovery message, an ARP request message, a unicast message, a multicast message, and a broadcast message. The unicast message will be transmitted to the second network device on the pre-configured VLAN prior to being transmitted to another network device outside the pre-configured VLAN.

  • Publication number: 20130188625
    Abstract: The present disclosure discloses a network device and/or method for enhanced VLAN pooling assignments in a wireless network. The disclosed network device receives a message from a wireless client in the wireless network. The network device identifies a virtual local area network (VLAN) based at least on a size of the VLAN and a number of active wireless clients associated with the VLAN. Next, the network device assigns the wireless client to the identified VLAN. In some embodiments, the network device assigns a wireless client to a VLAN if the radio between the number of active wireless clients and the size of the VLAN does not exceed a predetermined value. In some embodiments, the network device assigns a wireless client to a previously assigned VLAN or a VLAN corresponding to an identified home network device, if the wireless client is a roaming client.

  • Publication number: 20130111066
    Abstract: Automatically configuring split DNS operation in a wireless network device connected to a network. The wireless network device snoops one or more exchanged DHCP messages to obtain domain name(s) associated with the organization that are now used as target domain name suffix(es) for split DNS operations. For subsequent DNS queries, information within the message is analyzed to determine if the request includes a domain delimiter. If no delimiter, the DNS query message is sent to an internal DNS server that is located within an organization. If a delimiter exists, but the domain name in the message matches one of the target domain name suffixes, the DNS query message is sent to the internal DNS server as well. Otherwise, the DNS query message is routed over a different communication path.

  • Publication number: 20130100857
    Abstract: Secure hotspot roaming in wireless networks. An enterprise works with one or more hotspot providers to provide secure access to its clients through hotspot locations. The enterprise provides the (hotspot) service provider (SP), with the addresses of enterprise controllers used for client authentication. The SP maintains a database which maps the enterprise realm to the address of the enterprise controller. When a client connects to a hotspot access point (AP), the hotspot AP sends client information such as MAC address to a SP controller. The SP controller determines if the client is new or already known. If the client is known and the realm associated with the client has an entry in the realm to enterprise database, the hotspot AP is instructed to begin client authentication with the specified enterprise controller. If the client is unknown, authentication begins with the SP controller, and the client is queried for realm information.
