  • Patent number: 11188863
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, embodiments include receiving a first trouble ticket reporting a first service outage of a communication network and a second trouble ticket reporting a second service outage of the communication network. Further embodiments can include determining a first customer impact according to the first service outage and determining a second customer impact according to the second service outage. The first customer impact is determined by a degradation of quality metrics, a site priority, and a number of complaints due to each service outage. Additional embodiments can include identifying that the second customer impact is higher than the first customer impact. Also, embodiments can include prioritizing a resolution of the second trouble ticket over the first trouble ticket according to the second customer impact being higher than the first customer impact. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20210263151
    Abstract: Encoded transmit signals are provided to an ultrasound array such diverging ultrasound waves are sequentially transmitted. Each diverging ultrasound wave is generated by a respective set of encoded transmit signals, where each set of encoded transmit signals is encoded by a respective row of an N×N invertible orthogonal matrix. Only a selected subset of M rows, with N<M, is employed to encode the transmit signals. Sets of receive signals detected in response to the transmitted diverging ultrasound waves are decoded via a transposed matrix generated based on the invertible orthogonal matrix, with each set of decoded receive signals being associated with insonification via a subset of the ultrasound array elements in the fixed aperture. Synthetic aperture beamforming is performed on the decoded receive signals to generate an ultrasound image.

  • Patent number: 5695091
    Abstract: A unit suitable for wall mounting contains a supply of disinfectant and a proximity detector that senses an individual's approach. When an approaching individual is detected, the unit issues a visual and/or audible reminder to disinfect. A second proximity detector senses the presence of an individual's hands beneath a disinfectant ejection outlet, and the unit thereupon dispenses a predetermined amount of disinfectant. The invention may display compliance information including a compliance rate based on the ratio of alarms to actual dispensations of disinfectant, and may store historical compliance information for subsequent analysis.
