  • Publication number: 20220363570
    Abstract: Embodiments provide methods and strictures for purification or volume reduction of a brine by an advanced vacuum distillation process (AVMD) to achieve higher flux by passage of vapors through an AVMD distillation unit. In one example, brine is circulated in a tank. The tank may include one or more membrane pouches that are submerged in the circulating brine or placed above the water level of the hot circulating brine. In other embodiments the membrane pouches are outside of the tank that includes the hot circulating brine but still in communication with it. The circulating brine is heated, allowing creation of water vapor. Using a vacuum, the water vapor is drawn through the membrane, where it may be condensed and subjected to further beneficial use. This process can concentrate to levels to generate crystals or solids, which can be separated and utilized.

  • Publication number: 20220345940
    Abstract: The disclosed technology is directed towards load balancing in an adaptive and automated way for wireless mobility networks to improve the overall harmonic-average UE throughput within each controlled group of cells (e.g., different frequency carriers serving a sector of a base station). A load balancer (e.g., analytics component) obtains various device traffic data including throughput data for cells of a group. Pairs of cells in a group (sharing a site and face) can be selected based on satisfying various criteria, with estimated throughput gain achieved by changing the handoff rates between the cell pairs. The technology iteratively repeats the overall process, driving a system to an optimal equilibrium.

  • Publication number: 20220141706
    Abstract: The disclosed technology describes on-demand adjusting of the quality of service (QoS) class identifier (QCI) relative weight settings for different QCI classes associated with user devices. A QoS controller, which can be implemented in a standalone or a cloud configuration, updates the QCI weight settings as requested or needed to deal with changing network environments, such as growing traffic, different RF conditions, new devices, ratio of different service classes of user devices, to improve the overall performance of one or more cell sites. In one implementation, the QoS controller collects actual network statistics, and runs simulations based on those statistics with different groups of candidate QCI weight settings to generate multiple result sets. The QoS controller evaluates the result sets to determine which group of QCI weight settings meets desired performance objectives, and then applies those QCI weight settings to one or more NodeBs for use with actual data traffic.

  • Publication number: 20220103271
    Abstract: Architectures and techniques are presented that can provide point-to-point analysis to generate an improved signal strength prediction (SSP) based on, e.g., earth surface image data processing and analysis to draw conclusions of line of sight (LOS) along the propagation path between a BTS or another AP transmitter and CPE receiver. For example, USGS image data and/or elevation data of locations are identified to correspond to signal propagation between the transmitter and receiver can be analyzed for LOS signal quality at a fixed location, in addition to the statistical model prediction of the RF signal quality. As a result, foliage or terrain that obstructs the LOS can be identified and utilized to improve SSP by eliminating the additional pathloss due to LOS obstructions. Such can provide a significant improvement to SSP results that are conventionally predicted by statistical models rather than a point-to-point analysis.
