  • Publication number: 20160021482
    Abstract: The embodiments herein provide a method and system for automatically optimizing a Machine-to-Machine (M2M) network including a central controller configured to communicate with a plurality of nodes controlled using one or more hubs. The method including receiving, at the central controller, one or more parameters associated with each node from the one or more hubs in the M2M network, wherein the one or more hubs requests each node using a short range communication to receive the one or more parameters from each node. Further, the method includes identifying, at the central controller, a capability of each node based on a plurality of rules. Furthermore, the method includes performing one or more actions in the one or more hubs to automatically optimize the M2M network based on the identified capability of each node in the M2M network.

  • Publication number: 20160021189
    Abstract: Embodiments herein generally relates to a system and method to automatically offloading a signal processing operation from a back-end processing server to a node controlled using a central controller in a Machine-to-Machine (M2M) network. Further, the method includes identifying a raw data stream in the node. Further, the method includes receiving a parameter associated with the node in the M2M network. Further, the method includes determining the capability of the node based on a plurality of rules. Further, the method includes processing the raw data stream at the corresponding node based on the identified capability. The node can further include a signal processing agent received from the central controller to process the raw data stream.

  • Publication number: 20150071071
    Abstract: The proposed embodiment provides a method and system for load balancing between one or more nodes and a plurality of backhaul links over a communication network. The method includes computing processing data of the node(s) using parameters associated with the node, and computing backhaul link loading data using parameters associated with the plurality of backhaul links. Further, the method includes analyzing the processing data and the backhaul link loading data using one or more rules, and determining whether load balancing is required in accordance to the analysis. Furthermore, the method includes performing one or more actions in the communication network to load balance between the node and the plurality of backhaul links in response to determining that the load balancing is required.

  • Publication number: 20150072735
    Abstract: The present embodiment provides a method and system a method for sharing Mobile Equipment Identification Number (MEID) and Mobile Index Number (MIN) to provide optimal communication in a multi-service provider environment. The method includes receiving a request to access a service provided by one or more service providers, identifying a MEID-MIN pair associated with the request, and sharing the identified MEID-MIN pair among a plurality of access nodes associated with the one or more service providers. Further, the method further includes detecting an optimized access node among the plurality of access nodes to provide access to the service based on parameters associated with the plurality of access nodes, and using the identified MEID-MIN pair to provide access to the service through the detected optimized access node.

  • Patent number: 8625559
    Abstract: One or more embodiments of the present invention disclose a system and method for enhancing the communication capabilities of a personal electronic device by modifying its existing battery module, adding communication circuitry to the modified module, and providing for the personal device to communicate in a Wireless Wide Area Network (WWAN) via this modified battery module. The system and method consists of a personal device's existing battery pack modified to contain one or more wireless communication circuits, the wireless communication circuitry included in the modified battery module, and the method by which the personal device will communicate to the WWAN using the modified battery module. The system can also be used to re-distribute WWAN communication from the modified battery module, to one or more external personal devices, using near-field communications.
