  • Publication number: 20200328970
    Abstract: A method includes, at a node associated with a multiprotocol label switching system (MPLS) network, identifying information associated with an application flow based on one or more unencapsulated packet headers of the application flow or based on an ingress data stream that includes the application flow. The method further includes, in response to identifying the information, and based on stored data that maps application flows with psuedowires, determining a number of pseudowires corresponding to paths through the MPLS network, where the stored data indicates, for a sending device application, a distributed mapping of the application flow via at least one of the number of psuedowires, and communicating data related to the sending device application via at least one of the number of pseudowires.

  • Patent number: 10587999
    Abstract: Slotted Aloha-NOMA (SAN) protocol is an uncoordinated, non-orthogonal, random access protocol that exploits the simplicity of SA (Slotted Aloha) and the superior throughput of non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) and its ability to resolve collisions via use of successive interference cancellation (SIC) receiver. In SAN protocol, the SIC receiver at the IoT gateway adaptively learns the number of active devices (which is not known a priori) using multiple hypothesis testing in order to successfully distinguish between signals transmitted from different IoT devices.

  • Patent number: 10411999
    Abstract: Data is transferred from a plurality of ingress application flows over an MPLS network. Application flow control information is identified from the unencapsulated headers of the ingress data streams and a flow parameter is appended to the header stack. Application outbound load balancing identifies multiple equal cost network bound paths and utilizes application flow parameters to distribute data streams over a plurality of pseudowires without exceeding predetermined thresholds.

  • Patent number: 10076228
    Abstract: A system for performing non-invasive networked medical procedures including a number of in vivo medical devices, a communication path between at least two of the devices, an ex vivo control unit to control the behavior of the devices, and a wireless communication path between the control unit and at least one of the devices. An associated method for performing non-invasive networked medical procedures is also provided. Further included is a simulation method that utilizes accurate electromagnetic field simulations, using a software based test bench, to determine the maximum allowable transmitted power levels from in vivo devices to achieve a required bit error rates (BER) at an in vivo or ex vivo node (receiver) while maintaining the specific absorption rate (SAR) under a required threshold.

  • Patent number: 9649120
    Abstract: An apparatus for the insertion, placement, attachment, and removal of a surgical device includes a handle and an elongate shaft. Opposing spring fingers that open and close relative to one another are partially and slidably disposed within the distal end of the elongate shaft opposite the handle. The opposing spring fingers are adapted to grasp a surgical device and power the surgical device via physical conductors on the spring fingers or graspers attached thereto, resulting in the surgical device being fully functional. A first trigger mechanism opens and closes the spring fingers via a piston disposed within the elongate shaft. A second trigger mechanism rotates the surgical device grasped by the spring fingers.

  • Patent number: 9020059
    Abstract: The present invention provides a Diversity Coding—Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (DC-OFDM) system and method that applies diversity coding to OFDM-based systems and provides improved probability of successful reception at the receiver and transparent self-healing and fault-tolerance. Diversity coding is well suited for OFDM-based systems because of its spatial diversity nature (parallel links). DC-OFDM provides the best performance when the probability of link error is high or when a link (sub-channel) fails. Also, by implementing diversity coding in OFDM-based systems, a reliable communication can be provided that is quite tolerant of link failures, since data and protection lines are transmitted via multiple sub-channels.
