  • Patent number: 9825820
    Abstract: A method for a system that runs a platform simulation and a network simulation of a radio network comprises probing the network simulation to determine effects produced between transmitter-receiver pairs represented within the network simulation; computing communication effects in response to the probing and saving the communication effects for later use; and when a communication event involving a transmitter-receiver pair occurs in the platform simulation, using the saved communication effects to simulate the communication effects for that event.

  • Patent number: 8902767
    Abstract: Real-time, high fidelity communication effects are simulated. A transmitter in a platform simulation is requested to send a surrogate message to a receiver in the platform simulation. Communications effects are computed in response to the message, and the communications effects are saved for later use. When a future communication event involving the transmitter and receiver occurs, the saved effects are used to simulate the communication effects for that event.

  • Patent number: 8865866
    Abstract: The present invention relates to methods and compositions of modified variants of diphtheria toxin (DT) that reduce binding to vascular endothelium or vascular endothelial cells, and therefore, reduce the incidence of Vascular Leak Syndrome. One aspect of the present invention relates to a polypeptide toxophore from a modified DT, wherein the mutation is the substitution or deletion at least one amino acid residue at the amino acid residues 6-8, 28-30 or 289-291 of native DT. Another aspect of the present invention relates to a fusion protein which comprises a modified DT and a non-DT fragment. Another aspect of the present invention relates to the use of modified DT for the treatment of cancer.

  • Patent number: 8811943
    Abstract: The details of an apparatus and method of handling simultaneous universal terrestrial radio access network radio resource control procedures which change the security configuration in a universal mobile telecommunications system user equipment are disclosed herein. According to one aspect of the present application, there is provided a user equipment apparatus having a message handler, a sequential processor, a command store, and a security configuration change detector, wherein said message handler is coupled to said command store, is coupled to said sequential processor, and is coupled to said security configuration change detector to save, process, and detect configuration changes in commands respectively, and to determine if there is an existing command at the user equipment, such that the user equipment appears to the UTRAN as though it were processing commands simultaneously.

  • Patent number: 8599874
    Abstract: The details of an apparatus and method for handling cell update during reconfiguration in universal mobile telecommunications system user equipment are disclosed herein. When a UE receives a Reconfiguration request from a UTRAN, it sets an activation time for execution of the reconfiguration. Where a cell update is required when the reconfiguration has not yet been applied, the UE delays the execution of the cell update procedure until after the reconfiguration has been applied. If the trigger which initiated the cell update procedure is no longer relevant, the cell update is unnecessary and may be cancelled.

  • Patent number: 8400984
    Abstract: A multi-mode mobile communication device includes a processing device, a memory sub-system, a communication sub-system operable to communicate with wireless access networks, and a protocol stack stored in the memory sub-system and executed by the processing device. The protocol stack includes a first access stratum, a second access stratum, a non-access stratum and an access stratum manager. The first access stratum communicates with a first wireless access network via the communication sub-system. The second access stratum communicates with a second wireless access network via the communication sub-system. The non-access stratum communicates with a core network. The access stratum manager interfaces the non-access stratum with the first and second access strata, and is operable to activate the first access stratum to establish a communication link with the core network over the first wireless access network.

  • Patent number: 8175275
    Abstract: The details of an apparatus and method for determining uplink ciphering activation time in universal mobile telecommunications system user equipment are disclosed herein. The ciphering activation time is determined for radio bearers other than RB2 by measuring the data rate on each target radio bearer during the time that it takes for a polling or RRC message sent from the user equipment UE to be acknowledged by the network UTRAN. For RB2, the uplink ciphering activation time is determined by taking into account the size of the RRC response message and the data already queued on RB2 for transmission.
