  • Patent number: 11997583
    Abstract: A software defined network (SDN) can add network repository functions (NRF) into a configurations database to enable NF discovery. The SDN can subscribe to NRF notifications to receive new cloud native functions (CNF), registrations, or any other update to the CNF status in 5G system. In addition to listening to NRF notifications, the SDN can implement CNF pooling processes to periodically retrieve CNF from an NRF repository and stay in sync with 5G systems. Thus, a deep service path discovery can be developed from network service configurations and container call flows to enable an accurate alarm correlation and troubleshooting for the operations. This service path deep discovery can be designed and implemented as a standalone system or in an SDN framework with integration of a container management framework such as K8 kubernetes.

  • Publication number: 20230396503
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, generating a topological representation of a first portion of a communication network, obtaining data via an activation of a probe, wherein the data corresponds to an indicator of performance within the first portion of the communication network, modifying the topological representation to include a value corresponding to the indicator of the performance, resulting in a modified topological representation, and presenting the modified topological representation via an input/output device. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20230142774
    Abstract: Architectures and techniques are presented that provide a dynamic, action-driven visual task flow customization to a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform. A task element, expressing a task workflow can be modeled as a record of an order data model of the development environment. The task workflow can be executing according to a flow state management procedure, e.g., to manage lifecycle. In response to the flow state management procedure, the record can be updated according to a current state of the task element. These task elements can be correlated to an action or other operation of a flow designer module of the SaaS platform, which can leverage native automation.

  • Publication number: 20230084827
    Abstract: A dark fiber dense wavelength division multiplexing service path design microservice (ddSPDmS) can provide a scalable self-contained meta-data driven approach for a flexible implementation of a dark fiber dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) service path design solution. The service plan design solution can be used as a standalone solution or integrated with a network management application. In order to manage a large volume of circuit designs, multiple microservices can accept application program interface (API) requests in a cloud environment. Permission can then be given to any application to use the API to make a call to the design and inventory. Additionally, metadata templates can be designed to support a node, a link, and/or a topology for the microservices.

  • Publication number: 20220353716
    Abstract: The current disclosure facilitates the use of intelligent remote radio unites via the use of microservices and modems to make the radio head intelligent. If an enhanced common public radio interface (eCPRI) link is down, the radio head can communicate over the air via the wireless network to an operations, administration and maintenance (OAM) network. Thus, if the microservice is located at the radio head, the microservice can continuously monitor the radio head and evaluate its status. The microservice can then use this information to determine a status (e.g., latency, latency time, or the like) of the radio head and provide that information to the OAM. The microservice can facilitate rebooting or restarting of the radio head and/or run additional testing and/or measures on the link and/or the port of the radio head and provide that information over the air.
