  • Publication number: 20220007202
    Abstract: The disclosed technology is directed towards a (5G) spectrum access engine that operates to achieve 5G spectrum optimization. The 5G spectrum access engine provides optimized spectrum access in low-bands, mid-bands, and high-bands based on energy detection algorithms, data analytics, and/or a deep learning architecture. The 5G spectrum access engine can reallocate spectrum to user equipment (UEs), including to allocate Sub-6 frequencies to a user equipment when, based on energy sensing, the user equipment is experiencing poor signal quality with millimeter wave communications.

  • Publication number: 20210022211
    Abstract: A public safety analytics gateway includes a front-end processor configured to communicate with a network gateway and a public safety enterprise server and a data collector in communication with the front end processor, wherein the front end processor is configured to receive public safety data from the public service enterprise server and forward the public safety data to both the network gateway and the data collector. A method includes setting key performance indicator thresholds for use of a network by public safety-first responder devices, determining a baseline network usage profile, monitoring the key performance indicators in view of the baseline network usage profile, and prioritizing network resource allocations for the first responder devices over network resource allocations for non-first responder based on the monitoring step.

  • Patent number: 10826948
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, receiving from a web real-time communications gateway a first request for communication services from a network resource, where the network resource does not utilize a web real-time communications protocol and where the first request is compliant with a markup language that differs from the web real-time communications protocol, directing the network resource to provide the communication services identified in the first request, receiving a first message from the web real-time communications gateway, where the first message is compliant with the markup language, translating the first message to a first updated message conforming to a protocol used by the network resource, where protocol differs from the markup language used for communicating with the web real-time communications gateway, and transmitting the updated first message to the network resource facilitating the communication services identified in the first request.

  • Patent number: 10375126
    Abstract: VoIP traffic is intercepted for analysis. Packets transmitted from a mobile communication device over a radio access network to a core mobile communications network are intercepted. VoIP packets are detected within the intercepted packets. The detected VoIP packets are stored for analysis, and the intercepted packets are forwarded to a gateway in communication with a packet data network.

  • Patent number: 9769742
    Abstract: Application services associated with a mobile communication device are facilitated by a mediator gateway. A request for providing an application service is received by the mediator gateway. The request is associated with a mobile communication device. The mediator gateway selects a network among a plurality of networks associated with different carriers to which to send the request. The request is translated into an application programming interface request that is specific to a carrier associated with the selected network. The application programming interface request is sent to an application programming interface gateway associated with the carrier that is associated with the selected network.
