  • Publication number: 20220361266
    Abstract: An information handling system and keyboard automatically coordinate wireless pairing when the keyboard couples to the information handling system to interface contacts exposed at the information handling system housing and the keyboard. The information handling system retrieves an identifier of the keyboard through a contact, determines if the keyboard is already paired, and if not initiates wireless pairing with a command through the contact. A pairing key is provided from the keyboard to the information handling system through the contact and applied by the information handling system to complete pairing. A confirm code is communicated through the contact to the keyboard for communication back to the information handling system by wireless signals. The contacts provide a charging path to charge the keyboard when coupled to the information handling system.

  • Publication number: 20220232730
    Abstract: An information handling system includes a fan to cool a component of the information handling system, and a sensor device. The fan includes a first fan inlet, a second fan inlet, and a fan outlet. The fan is configured to draw air into the first and second fan inlets and to blow air out the fan outlet. The sensor device includes a sensor inlet, a sensor outlet, and a cover. The sensor is coupled to the fan with the first fan inlet collocated with the sensor outlet such that air drawn into the first fan inlet is first drawn through the sensor inlet. The cover is configured in a first position to cover the sensor inlet to permit no air flow through the sensor inlet and in a second position to uncover the sensor inlet to permit air to flow through the sensor inlet.

  • Publication number: 20220214324
    Abstract: A sensor measures an environmental factor in an ambient environment immediately surrounding an information handling system. A processor determines that the information handling system is in a first location, provides a first sampling frequency of the sensor based upon the first location, determines that the information handling system is in a second location, and provides a second sampling frequency of the sensor based upon the second location. The first sampling frequency is different from the second sampling frequency.

    Abstract: A method and apparatus for enabling dynamic reroute in a redundant system is provided. A network device is operative to determine whether a state of a link that couples the first network device with a third network device is active. In response to determining that the state of the link is active causing a payload of a packet to be forwarded towards the third network device through the second network interface of the first network device based on a second IP address; and responsive to determining that the state of the link is not active causing the second payload to be forwarded towards the third network device through a third network interface of the second network device based on the second IP address.

  • Patent number: 10771380
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses for fast convergence in Layer 2 overlay network are described. Forwarding of Layer 2 (L2) traffic addressed to one or more remote L2 destinations is performed according to a remote L2 (RL2) instance, where the RL2 instance identifies a primary path for forwarding the traffic towards the remote L2 destinations, and a provider edge service label (PESL) instance associated with a broadcast domain including one or more network devices for forwarding the L2 traffic towards the L2 destination, and where the PESL instance is identified with a unique immutable PESL instance label. In response to a network event, an update of the RL2 instance is performed. The update results in an update of a data plane for forwarding the L2 traffic without necessitating an update of forwarding table entries for each one of the one or more remote L2 destination.

  • Patent number: 10712792
    Abstract: An information handling system includes a battery, a managed device, a host processing complex to instantiate a hosted processing environment, a wireless management module, and a management controller coupled to the wireless management module. The wireless management module includes a wireless transceiver. When the host processing complex is unpowered, the wireless management module receives power from the battery and receives configuration information for the managed device via the wireless transceiver. The management manages the managed device out of band from the hosted processing environment based upon the configuration information.

  • Patent number: 10687193
    Abstract: A wearable device monitors a wearer's physical activity and provides assistance to the wearer. The device includes physiologic sensors that provide sensor data of the wearer to a processor, a user interface that provides information to the wearer, a network interface that provides a network connection between the device and a remote computer, and a memory that stores instructions. The processor executes the instructions to collect physical activity data of the wearer using the sensors, to provide the collected activity data to the remote computer via the network interface to create or update a parameterized rule-based custom data model for the wearer, to receive the custom data model for comparison to collected activity data, and to communicate with the wearer via the user interface when a check of the wearer's activity data against the custom data model indicates that the wearer's activity is not consistent with the custom data model.

  • Patent number: 10462664
    Abstract: An information handling system includes a Baseboard Management Controller (BMC) and a communication interface coupled to the BMC. The BMC includes a security co-processor that stores an access key. The access is associated with a first function of the BMC. The communication interface receives a security key from a device external to the information handling system. The BMC directs the security co-processor to determine if the first security key matches the first access key, and unlocks the first function when the first security key matches the first access key.

  • Patent number: 10383157
    Abstract: An information handling system includes a management system and first and second first baseboard management controllers (BMCs). The first BMC includes a first wireless interface, and is coupled via a first wired interface to the management system. The second BMC includes a second wireless interface, and is coupled via a second wired interface to the management system. The information handling system detects that the BMC has become uncoupled from the management system via the first wired interface, establishes a wireless link between the first wireless interface and the second wireless interface in response to detecting that the first BMC has become uncoupled from the management system, and provides management between the first BMC and the management system via the second wired interface and the wireless link.

  • Patent number: 10216681
    Abstract: An information handling system includes a host processing complex and a wireless management system. The host processing complex instantiates a hosted processing environment and includes a first general-purpose processing unit (GPU) and a GPU hot-plug module that enables a hot-plug operation to replace the first GPU with a second GPU while power is provided to the host processing complex. The hosted processing environment instantiates a first workload on the first GPU. The wireless management system operates out of band from the hosted processing environment, directs the hosted processing environment to halt the first workload, and directs the GPU hot-plug module to perform the hot-plug operation.
