  • Publication number: 20210258338
    Abstract: A communication brokering device receives, from a first device, a measurement of at least one of a bit-error-rate (BER) or a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) associated with receipt of a transmission at the first device. The communication brokering device determines whether the first device is vulnerable to message interception or eavesdropping based on the measurement of the at least one of the BER or the SNR. The communication brokering device controls communications between at least one second device and the first device based on the determination of whether the first device is vulnerable to message interception or eavesdropping.

  • Patent number: 11025662
    Abstract: A network device receives a device-specific connectivity restriction policy that specifies rules for exercising control over an identified first device's connectivity during communication using a brokered communication protocol, and receives, from the first device, a request to access the brokered communication protocol to enable communication with at least one second device. The network device connects, based on the access request, the first device to the at least one second device to allow the first device to read or write data using the brokered communication protocol. The network device monitors traffic associated with the first device during the first device's use of the brokered communication protocol to read data from, or write data to, the at least one second device, and controls the traffic associated with the first device based on the traffic monitoring and application of the device-specific connectivity restriction policy.

  • Patent number: 10659125
    Abstract: A computer device may be configured to execute the instructions to identify a location for a user equipment (UE) device serviced by a base station slice associated with a base station; access a beam forming database (DB) to determine whether a match exists in the beam forming DB for the identified location; and determine that no match exists in the beam forming DB for the identified location. The computer device may be further configured to perform two-dimensional modeling of radio frequency signal propagation for the identified location using a terrain model, based on determining that no match exists in the beam forming DB for the identified location; determine antenna settings for an antenna array associated with the base station slice based on the performed two-dimensional modeling; and instruct the base station to apply the determined antenna settings to the antenna array.

  • Patent number: 10547632
    Abstract: A network device receives an enrollment request from a first device to enroll in a brokered communication protocol for communicating with at least one second device. The network device transmits, to the first device, a test vector and a measurement request, and receives, from the first device responsive to the measurement request, a measurement of at least one of a bit-error-rate (BER) and/or a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) based on receipt of the test vector at the first device. The network device determines if the first device is vulnerable to message interception or eavesdropping based on the measurement of the BER and/or the SNR, and denies the first device access, by the network device, to the brokered communication protocol based on whether the first device is determined to be vulnerable to message interception or eavesdropping.

  • Patent number: 7616664
    Abstract: A system and method of sending video and audio data over a network. At least some of the illustrative embodiments may be a method comprising writing at least a portion of encoded video data and accompanying encoded audio data to a first buffer (the first buffer accumulating payload of a first datagram), writing transactional data to the first buffer, running a timer simultaneously with the writing, ceasing writing transactional data to the first buffer the earlier of when the first datagram payload meets a predetermined size or the expiration of the timer after a predetermined time, and then sending the first datagram over a network.
