  • Patent number: 11561538
    Abstract: Deployed drones are managed. For instance, a first drone detects whether the first drone is in communication with a command center via a first communication network to determine a configuration parameter of a first message to broadcast discovery information associated with the first drone. In response to the first drone being in communication with the command center via the first communication network, the first drone broadcasts the first message configured with a first value for the configuration parameter. Or, in response to the first drone not being in communication with the command center via the first communication network, the first drone broadcasts the first message configured with a second value for the configuration parameter different from the first value.

  • Patent number: 11563519
    Abstract: A user equipment (e.g., C-V2X user equipment) can receive a transmission from a network device of a mobile network and decode the transmission using a first forward error correction code. The user equipment can determine an attribute of the transmission to determine a condition of the communication channel. Based on the condition of the communication channel, the user equipment can facilitate transmitting feedback to the network device, wherein the feedback is forwarded through the mobile network to an application server device that selects a second forward error correction code based on the feedback. The second forward error correction code can be transmitted to, and received by, the user equipment. The user equipment can use the second forward error correction code to decode subsequent transmissions.

  • Publication number: 20230008959
    Abstract: Structured access to volunteered private data disclosed. Access can be based on security and privacy constraint information (SPCI) that can be selected by the party volunteering the private data. The volunteered data can be stored in a protected portion of a public network. The SPCI can be correlated to the volunteered data. ln response to receiving a request for access to the volunteered data, an attribute of the request can be determined to satisfy one or more rules related to the SPCI prior to facilitating access to a version of a portion of the volunteered data. The version of the portion of the volunteered data can be a redaction of the portion of the volunteered data. The version of the portion of the volunteered data can be aggregated with other portions of other volunteered data determined to satisfy corresponding SPCI related rules.

  • Patent number: 11527166
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies disclosed herein are directed to intelligent drone traffic management via a radio access network (“RAN”). As disclosed herein, a RAN node, such as an eNodeB, can receive, from a drone, a flight configuration. The flight configuration can include a drone ID and a drone route. The RAN node can determine whether capacity is available in an airspace associated with the RAN node. In response to determining that capacity is available in the airspace associated with the RAN node, the RAN node can add the drone ID to a queue of drones awaiting use of the airspace associated with the RAN node. When the drone ID is next in the queue of drones awaiting use of the airspace associated with the RAN node, the RAN node can instruct the drone to fly through at least a portion of the airspace in accordance with the drone route.

  • Publication number: 20220394798
    Abstract: Techniques for creating a service slice of a network in an underserved area are presented. A vehicle can be associated with a slice component that can generate service slices of a service network for various services. The vehicle can travel to an underserved area that does not have adequate wireless coverage or advance capabilities. For a communication device associated with an entity located in an underserved area, slice component can generate a service slice to connect the communication device to the communication network (and service network), establish a session with the communication device, provide applications, including VNF applications, to the communication device, and communicate information between the communication device and communication network (and service network). If no radio access to the network is available, slice component can continue the session with an internal slice and store information in its service database, which is synced when reconnected to the network.

  • Patent number: 11509812
    Abstract: A system of cameras can be used to generate a complete field of view within an edge network. For example, one camera can have a field of view where part of the view is obstructed by an object and/or by the camera's orientation. Yet another camera that is a part of the edge network can supplement the view of the first camera by providing an alternate view. The two views can be stitched together by a coordinate system such that a complete field of view can be utilized by both cameras. Additionally, where a field of view is not available by any stationary camera, the system can dispatch a mobile camera to help supplement the views.

  • Publication number: 20220338294
    Abstract: In one example, the present disclosure describes a device, computer-readable medium, and method for instantiating intelligent service delivery parameters within protected hardware. For instance, in one example, a method includes instantiating within a user endpoint device an end-to-end slice of a communications network, wherein the slice is configured to carry data over the communications network subject to a predefined combination of network service metrics, transmitting user data from the user endpoint device to the communications network via the slice when the user endpoint device is able to establish a radio connection to the communications network, and storing the user data locally in the user endpoint device when the user endpoint device is unable to establish a radio connection to the communications network.

  • Publication number: 20220321460
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, a method including selecting a second network slice, according to first information and a first characteristic of a first service associated with a communication device. The first network slice is directed to route a first portion of user plane traffic between the communication device and the second network slice, while retaining a second portion according to a second characteristic of the first service. The first network slice retains control plane processing for the communication device. The second network slice is directed to facilitate providing the first service via the first portion of the user plane traffic. Anticipated resource usage information associated with the second network slice is determined and a first virtual network function is instantiated at the second network slice according to the anticipated resource usage information associated with the second network slice. Other embodiments are disclosed.
