  • Patent number: 10320989
    Abstract: A modified end user network access point includes a switching module and a controller to track usage of the end user network access point by wirelessly connected end user devices. The tracked usage information is transmitted from the end user network access point to a remotely coupled data center. The data center collects usage information from a plurality of different end user network access points. The collected usage information is in turn transmitted from the data center to a network carrier. The network carrier uses the received usage information to bill users for accessing the end user network access points and using any services provided by the end user network access points. An owner of each end user network access point is compensated by the network carrier each instance that an end user device utilizes the end user network access point to access the network carrier's communications network.

    Abstract: Apparatus and methods for providing computing resources are provided. More particularly, providing recursively-generated instantiated computing resource in a multi-tenant environment are provided. According to one example, a non-transitory computer-readable medium can store a set of instructions executable by a processing resource to instantiate a first instance of a first computing resource and provide the first instance of the first computing resource to a first tenant of a plurality of tenants utilizing a computing system. A second computing resource can be provided to a second tenant of the plurality of tenants when the second computing resource is available and sharable with the second tenant. A second instance of the first computing resource can be recursively-generated responsive to the request from the second tenant when the second computing resource is not available or the second computing resource is not sharable with the second tenant.

  • Publication number: 20180206166
    Abstract: A nomadic server and a related system provides seamless roaming for a mobile communication device between different types of wireless networks, such as WiFi and cellular networks for voice, data and video communication. Use of the nomadic server enables a combination of WiFi and cellular networks for providing access to the cellular phones and make use of the VOIP networks for switching the calls wherever possible. The nomadic server is a telephone communication processing and switching server that will “hold” the present, in-progress telephone communications without dropping, while roaming without losing the present, in-progress communication. For example, a telephone communication can be seamlessly switching between VOIP and cellular telephone networks using the nomadic server. Nomadic server resources interface with the VOIP and cellular network switches to provide the hand-off between networks.
