  • Publication number: 20210336862
    Abstract: A Data Sample Collection Service (DSCS) may be configured to receive various data sample collection requests from users and to process the one or more requests on behalf of the users. In order to properly describe what kind of Ready-to-Use Data Samples (RDS) a user needs, the DSCS may adopt a Data Sample Template (DST). By using the DST, the user can clearly depict what their desired data samples look like, along with various quality requirements regarding the data samples. The DSCS can further provide a DST Management function to users. In general, DST management involves the processes of DST creation, DST update, DST deletion and DST activation/de-activation. For example, a user may create a DST based on its data sample collection needs. Later, the created DST can also be updated and/or deleted based on dynamic changes to the needs of the user.

  • Patent number: 11159606
    Abstract: A lightweight and extensible information model for machine-to-machine systems is disclosed. A service layer information management architecture uses three categories of atomic objects, subjects, actions, and descriptions. Information for use within the model is built using the atomic information objects. Application programming interfaces are used to perform operations and information processing by different nodes. Common service functions are used in the model as instances of a generic common service information model.

  • Patent number: 11159379
    Abstract: The application describes a computer-implemented apparatus that includes a non-transitory memory having instructions stored thereon for assigning address space in a network. The apparatus also includes a processor, operably coupled to the non-transitory memory, configured to execute at least the instruction of receiving a solicitation from a router in the network. The processor is also configured to execute the instruction of replying to the solicitation with address space. The processor is also configured to execute the instruction of receiving a second solicitation from the router to register a new address. The processor is further configured to execute the instruction of determining if the new address is from a dedicated address space or a shared address space. The processor is even further configured to execute the instruction of sending a neighbor advertisement with the address registration to the router.

  • Publication number: 20210328924
    Abstract: Methods, system, and apparatuses may support end-to-end (E2E) quality of service (QoS) through the use of service layer (SL) sessions. For example, an application can communicate with a targeted device based on application specified schedule, latency, jitter, error rate, throughput, level of security, and cost requirements.

  • Publication number: 20210328997
    Abstract: Current discovery mechanisms lack capabilities, such as capabilities related to permissions associated with a given registrant for example. In an example embodiment, a registrant of a service layer can communicate with a network node that hosts the service layer. The network node may receive a discovery request for a resource from the registrant. The discovery may request include various context. For example, the context of the discovery request may be indicative of an operation that the registrant intends to perform on the resource, a role that the registrant intends to assume if the registrant accesses the resource, a location in which the registrant intends to access the resource, or a subscription plan that the registrant intends to use if the registrant accesses the resource. Based on the context of the discovery request, the network node may determine whether one or more resources at the service layer satisfy the discovery request.

  • Publication number: 20210286655
    Abstract: The provision of fog services may be coordinated by a fog leader adapted to track capabilities and resources available at other fog nodes, and to receive and process requests and policies from entities seeking fog services. For example, the fog leader may divide tasks among several fog nodes according to the capabilities and resources available at various nodes, and do so in a way that is transparent to the requestor and the fog nodes providing the service. The fog leader may request the reservation of capabilities and resources, and confirm and cancel such reservations. Fog services policies may include, for example, periods of time during which capabilities and resources should be reserved.

  • Publication number: 20210256159
    Abstract: An IoT/M2M service layer may be provided with the capability to protect user privacy. This functionality may allow the IoT/M2M service layer to anonymize user data, particularly when user data is shared with third party consumers. A privacy policy service may enable the IoT service layer system to generate anonymization (e.g., privacy) policies based on inputs such as legal obligations, subscriber privacy preferences, and an authorization level of the data consumer. Data anonymization policies may be output from the privacy policy service and may be sent to a data anonymization service, where raw data may be anonymized based on the one or more data anonymization policies. The output from the data anonymization service function may be a privatized (e.g., anonymized) version of data that may prevent the data consumer from discovering one or more identifying characteristics of a user.

  • Publication number: 20210240719
    Abstract: A modular and distributed architecture for data stream processing and analysis is described to incorporate data stream analytics capabilities, called Data Stream Analytics Service (DSAS) in the IoT/M2M service layer. Each service layer node hosting DSAS can be split into two independent modules, Stream Forwarder and Stream Analytics Engine. Stream Forwarder is a light weight processing modules that can be responsible for data preprocessing and routing. Stream Analytics Engine is responsible for performing actual analytics on the data stream. Separating the two functionalities enables the service layer nodes to efficiently distribute stream analytics tasks across multiple nodes.

  • Patent number: 11076013
    Abstract: A new semantic mashup architecture with modular design can comprise separate Semantic Mashup Profiles (SMPs), Virtual Semantic Mashup Resources (VSMRs), and Semantic Mashup Results (SMRSs). This kind of modular design greatly improves the reusability of SMPs, VSMRs, and SMRSs. In addition, this new mashup architecture leverages semantics during each mashup process, which increases the interoperability. Moreover, this new architecture essentially realizes new Semantic Mashup Service (SMS) at the service layer and consequently improves system efficiency.
