  • Patent number: 10154443
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are system, apparatus, article of manufacture, method and/or computer program product embodiments for handing off wireless communication. The apparatus comprises an antenna configured to receive data from a first access point; a cache configured to store the data; and a controller configured to predict when the transceiver will hand off a connection from the first access point to a second access point and request a burst of data from the first access point to supplement the data in the cache in preparation for the hand off.

  • Patent number: 9907006
    Abstract: Systems and methods for adaptive access and handover configuration based on historical data are provided. Access and handover decisions are optimized in a multiple radio access technology environment using historical data associated with network performance. Future needs for access and handovers are predicted using historical data associated with the user and historical data associated with network performance. Performance metrics are received periodically or continuously from nodes in one or more networks at a centralized controller. The centralized multi RAT controller correlates these performance metrics and determines predicted handovers for a user device. Preparations for the predicted handovers can then be made prior to the handover event.

  • Patent number: 9763155
    Abstract: Systems and methods for staged connectivity and sleep mode are provided. Embodiments of the present disclosure optimize power consumption for a user across user devices by creating an ad hoc co-located network of user devices and establishing a device in the co-located network to act as a master (hub) device. In an embodiment, the system includes multiple user wireless devices and a network controller. The network controller identifies a set of proximate wireless devices and the power capability for each wireless device in the set. The network controller then selects a wireless device in the set to act as the hub (master) wireless device based on factors such as the power capabilities of each wireless device. The network controller then instructs the other wireless devices in the set to power down and instructs the appropriate network providers to handover communications to the hub (master) device.

  • Patent number: 9730271
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing dynamic substream definition and handover are provided. In embodiments, a user device includes a multiple radio access technology (RAT) communications modules and a communication controller. Each RAT communication module is further configured to communicate using a different RAT. The user device identifies available networks for communication. Then, the controller determines whether a need to split a communications stream exists (e.g., the user device is engaged in a bandwidth intensive application). If the communications stream is to be split, the controller defines the substreams (either equally or unequally) and assigns a first substream to a communication pathway in a first available network and assigns a second substream to a communication pathway in a second available network. The destination then recombines the substreams. In embodiments, the controller inserts synchronization in the substreams.

  • Patent number: 9521268
    Abstract: A wireless communication device communicating with a serving base station in a wireless communication environment may have one or more applications running. When seeking to handover from the serving base station to a target base station, the wireless communication device adjusts the configurations of the applications based on the new communication link properties. Likewise, when an application is loaded that prefers communication link properties that exceeds a current communication link's capabilities, the wireless communication device may seek out and hand over to other communication links. By cooperatively coordinating the functionality of installed applications with communication link properties, the wireless communication device can maintain high levels of device and application functionality.

  • Patent number: 8805277
    Abstract: Aspects of a method and system for Bluetooth 802.11 alternate MAC/PHY (AMP) transmit power control (TPC) may include one or more processors, receiver circuits and/or transmitter circuits that are operable to determine a maximum input level based on signals received via a Bluetooth basic rate (BR) connection and/or via a Bluetooth extended data rate (EDR) connection. The processors and/or circuits may be operable to determine a transmitted signal power level based on the determined maximum input level. The processors and/or circuits may be operable to transmit subsequent signals via a distinct Bluetooth connection based on the determined transmitted signal power level. The data rate for signal transmission via the distinct Bluetooth connection may exceed the data rate for signal transmission via the BR connection and the data rate for signal transmission via the EDR connection.

  • Patent number: 8799692
    Abstract: Aspects in a method and system for no buffered traffic indication for wireless local area network (WLAN) power save may enable a peer communication device to determine a time duration for remaining in an active operating state based on communication with other peer communication devices. In one aspect, a given peer communication device may determine that it has no data to communicate to any of the remaining peer communication devices. The given communication device may communicate to each of the peer communication devices that there is no data to transmit to the peer communication device. Each of the peer communication devices may communicate that there is no data to transmit to the given peer communication device. Based on the communications, the given peer communication device may exit the active operating state and enter a low power operating state.
