  • Patent number: 9294930
    Abstract: Methods, systems and instructions stored on computer-readable media for generating a first data stream and a second data stream. The first data stream is spread using a first gold code unique to a first tag. The second data stream is spread using a second gold code unique to a second tag. The spread first data stream and the spread second data stream are combined into a combined data stream. The combined data stream is transmitted to the first tag and the second tag.

  • Patent number: 8995404
    Abstract: Methods, systems and instructions stored on computer-readable media for generating, at a first node, a plurality of data units. The plurality of data units are spread with a common pseudo-noise (PN) code that is used by a plurality of nodes, including the first node and a second node, that are in communication with an access point. A random timing offset is determined, and a first data unit is transmitted to the access point at a first time based upon a slot start time and the random timing offset. The first data unit is transmitted while at least a portion of a second signal is transmitted from the second node such that both the first data unit and the second signal are received by the access point. The second signal is transmitted at a second time based on the slot time and a second random timing offset.

  • Patent number: 8837555
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatuses, including computer programs encoded on computer-readable media, for receiving monitor data from a lighting equipment monitor. A data stream is created based upon the monitor data. A first signal strength of a signal from the access point received at a first antenna is measured. A second signal strength of the signal from the access point received at a second antenna is measured. One or more antennae are selected to transmit the spread data stream based upon the first signal strength and the second signal strength. The data stream is transmitted using the one or more selected antennae.

  • Patent number: 8611399
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatuses, including computer programs encoded on computer-readable media, for receiving a timing signal at a first access point, wherein the timing signal is also received at a second access point. A first time is synchronized at the first access point with a second time at the second access point based upon the received timing signal. The first access point is configured with a spreading code and a transmit frequency. The second access point is also configured with the spreading code and the transmit frequency. The spreading code of the first access point is synchronized with the spreading code of the second access point using the timing signal. A message is transmitted from the first access point to the node and from the second access point to the node.
