  • Publication number: 20190327071
    Abstract: A duplex frequency is supplemented by providing simplex frequencies and distributing a data load among them. A server initially communicates with a communications device using a duplex channel. A scheduler of the server determines when it is no longer optimal to use the single duplex channel, and distributes data among the duplex channel and the simplex channels. Before sending this data through multiple channels, the server first sends a schedule to the communications device to inform which bits of data are coming through which channels at which times. The scheduler compiles this schedule and sends it to the communications device through the duplex channel. A descheduler within the communications device receives the schedule and alerts the communications device to start receiving data on other simplex channels. The descheduler then puts the bits of data in order as they stream in across the duplex and simplex channels.

  • Publication number: 20190266103
    Abstract: A self-encrypting drive (SED) comprises an SED controller and a nonvolatile storage medium (NVSM) responsive to the SED controller. The SED controller enables the SED to perform operations comprising: (a) receiving an encrypted media encryption key (eMEK) for a client; (b) decrypting the eMEK into an unencrypted media encryption key (MEK); (c) receiving a write request from the client, wherein the write request includes data to be stored and a key tag value associated with the MEK; (d) using the key tag value to select the MEK for the write request; (e) using the MEK for the write request to encrypt the data from the client; and (f) storing the encrypted data in a region of the NVSM allocated to the client. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 10380081
    Abstract: A container for one or more scheduled meeting is pre-built for the meeting prior to the meeting occurring. The container can be built in a variety of manners, including using both static and dynamic techniques. Dynamic techniques for building a container allows a pre-build system to include more pertinent data in the container whereas static techniques reduce computing workload and allow for pre-building containers for unscheduled meetings. A combination of static and dynamic building techniques can be applied using a layer repository. Alternately, a static base layer can be used and customized for scheduled meetings.
