  • Publication number: 20220052925
    Abstract: Federated learning is used to predict network communication performance at an edge node (10-1). The edge node (10-1) trains a local model (14-1) of network communication performance over one or more rounds of training, based on a local training dataset (22-1) and based on multi-node training information (20-1) received in each round of training. This information (20-1) comprises In information about local models (14-2, . . . 14-N) at other respective edge nodes (10-2, . . . 10-N) as trained based on local training datasets at the other edge nodes (10-2, . . . 10-N). After or as part of each round of training, the edge node (10-1) transmits control signaling that indicates an accuracy of the local model (14-1) as trained through that round of training, that indicates whether another round of training is needed or desired, and/or that indicates whether any further information (20-1) is needed or desired.

  • Patent number: 11245633
    Abstract: A method and a wireless device (100) for handling transmission of data. The cost for transmitting the data from the wireless device (100) can be reduced or even minimized by delaying (1:3) transmission until the transmission cost becomes lower, provided that the data can wait without becoming obsolete or useless at the receiving side. This is made possible by determining a delay tolerance of the data and determining a cost prediction for transmission (1:6) within said delay tolerance, e.g. when a cheaper connection (1:4) is used. Advantages may include reduced price to pay for the transmission, less energy consumption, and avoided usage of precious radio resources and network resources at times when the traffic load is high.

  • Publication number: 20210306873
    Abstract: Methods include training, using a generative adversarial network, a generator model using data noise that includes data corresponding to real problems of a telecommunication site, generating a generated problem that has not occurred at the telecommunication site and that has a non-zero probability of occurring at the site in the future, providing the generated problem to a virtual agent that is configured to generate a solution action to resolve the generated problem, evaluating the solution action relative to the generated problem to determine a performance value corresponding to the solution action, and responsive to the performance value being higher than other performance values corresponding to other solution actions for the generated problem, generating a generic problem model that corresponds to the generated problem and that is associated with the solution action.

  • Publication number: 20210273888
    Abstract: A method and a communication device (200) for controlling reception of data when a maximum total amount of received data is stipulated for a time period. An amount of data received during said time period is monitored (2:5) and compared with a predicted distribution of data (200A) that the device (200) is expected to receive without exceeding the maximum total amount. An amount of requested data is then reduced (2:6, 2:7) when detecting that the monitored amount of received data exceeds the predicted distribution of data, so that the maximum total amount of data will not be exceeded before the time period expires.

  • Patent number: 10856046
    Abstract: A buffer status metric representing a current amount of video packets in a video playback buffer (303) of a user device (300). A buffer status action is triggered based on the buffer status action and at least one of a mobility metric representing a mobility pattern of the user device (300) and a radio quality metric representing a signal strength of a radio channel carrying video packets towards the user device (300). The embodiments also relate to determination of a buffer control model (142) that can be used in order to control the video playback buffer based on the input metrics. The embodiments achieve a more efficient control of video playback buffers (303) and may reduce the risk of freezes during video playback.

  • Publication number: 20190334803
    Abstract: An initial bitrate is selected for a video delivery session by a user equipment (5, 200) performing, during a time window from initiation of a video player application in the user equipment (5, 200) up to selection of a video content, network measurements of a current condition of a network used to deliver the video content to the user equipment (5, 200). A respective initial buffer duration is provided for each bitrate available for the video content and where these respective initial buffer durations are predicted based on at least one network metric derived from the network measurements. An initial bitrate for delivering the video content over the network to the user equipment is selected based on the respective initial buffer durations.

  • Publication number: 20180041952
    Abstract: Access control node (200), access device (202A), tethering device (204), and methods therein, for enabling wireless access to a communications network (208). One or more access devices (202) having a wireless connection to the network (208) provide (2:1) relay properties to an access control node (200). When detecting (2:2) that network access is wanted for the tethering device (204), the access control node (200) selects (2:3) an access device (202A) based on the obtained relay properties, to be used for sharing wireless connection with the tethering device (204). The access control node (200) then instructs (2:4) the selected access device (202A) to be available as a relay to the communications network (208) for the tethering device (204) via a wireless link between the access device (202A) and the tethering device (204). The tethering device (204) can then access (2:8) the communications network over the wireless link.
