  • Patent number: 11362918
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, detecting a request for a network service between two network nodes and identifying a network path between the two network nodes, wherein the network path is realized by equipment performing a number of network functions. A first network function of the number of network functions is associated with a first number of redundant virtualized network resources performing at least a similar network function as the first network function. Usage metrics are determined corresponding to the first number of redundant virtualized network resources and a first virtualized network resource of the first number of redundant virtualized network resources is assigned to the network path based on the usage metrics to obtain a first assigned virtualized network resource. The network service is provided between the two network nodes using the first assigned virtualized network resource. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20220029742
    Abstract: A user equipment (e.g., C-V2X user equipment) can receive a transmission from a network device of a mobile network and decode the transmission using a first forward error correction code. The user equipment can determine an attribute of the transmission to determine a condition of the communication channel. Based on the condition of the communication channel, the user equipment can facilitate transmitting feedback to the network device, wherein the feedback is forwarded through the mobile network to an application server device that selects a second forward error correction code based on the feedback. The second forward error correction code can be transmitted to, and received by, the user equipment. The user equipment can use the second forward error correction code to decode subsequent transmissions.

  • Publication number: 20210368305
    Abstract: The disclosed technology is directed towards an integrated short message service (SMS) function and short message service center function that delivers mobile terminated messages by selecting among access domains for to endpoints based on their capabilities, e.g., 5G, 5G+, LTE WI-FI, including multimode capabilities. The integrated SMS function determines attributes (e.g., capabilities) of a user equipment destination device for a mobile terminated message, obtains contextual data (e.g., current device reachability, network conditions) for the device, and determines which access and mobility management function (AMF) or mobility management entity (MME) is associated with the device. Based on the various obtained information, the integrated SMS function selects an appropriate access domain based on the capabilities and contextual data, and if the device is reachable, correctly routes the message for delivery. Retry operations can be set up for devices that are not currently reachable.

  • Publication number: 20210273906
    Abstract: One or more protocols between a control plane entity (e.g., a mobility management entity (MME)) and its peer nodes (e.g., mobile switching center (MSC) and/or short message service center (SMSC)) are enhanced to improve short messaging services for Internet of things (IoT) devices. Oftentimes, IoT devices enter an extended sleep mode during which they cannot be reached by the control plane entity. In one aspect, the control plane entity can determine a wait period based on information, such as, but not limited to, device context data, mapping tables, policy data, commercial traffic data, latency data, device delay tolerance, sleep mode timer values, etc. The wait period can be provided to the peer nodes, which can utilize the wait period to control one or more message retry mechanisms based on IoT device behaviors resulting in an improvement of overall IoT service behaviors and a delivery of superior IoT customer experience.
