  • Patent number: 10887400
    Abstract: A client device may be used to initiate or answer calls using a host device connected to a network. For example, when a phone operating as a host device receives an incoming call from a network, the phone may communicate the presence of the incoming call to one or more client devices such as laptop, desktop, tablet, or wearable devices that are associated with the host device. When an answer call selection is made at a client, a call answered communication may be sent from the client device to the host device. The host device may then communicate with the network to connect the call to the host, and when the call is connected, the host may hand-off the call to the client that sent the call answered communication.

  • Patent number: 10645125
    Abstract: A telecommunication network 20 configures a telecommunication device 11 and makes and controls communication connections between telecommunication devices. The telecommunication network 20 is configured such that, in use, on initiation of the telecommunication device 11, such as an Internet Protocol telephone or video telephone, a telecommunication device identifier to identify the telecommunication device 11 is output to a computer system or provisioning server 41 via the Internet 10. The computer system 41 receives the telecommunication device identifier and, in response, outputs to the telecommunication device 11, via the Internet 10, an indication of a telecommunication device control system or PBX 12 for use by the telecommunication device 11. The telecommunication device control system 12 is subsequently usable by the telecommunication device 11 to make and control communication connections between the telecommunication device 11 and other telecommunication devices.

  • Patent number: 10638169
    Abstract: A video streaming method for transitioning between multiple sequences of coded video data may include receiving and decoding transmission units from a first sequence of coded video data. In response to a request to transition to a second sequence of coded video data, the method may determine whether a time to transition to the second sequence of coded video data can be reduced by transitioning to the second sequence of coded video data via an intermediate sequence of coded video data. If the time can be reduced, the method may include receiving at least one transmission unit from an intermediate sequence of coded video data that corresponds to the request to transition, decoding the transmission unit from the intermediate sequence, and transitioning from the first sequence to the second sequence via the decoded transmission unit from the intermediate sequence.

  • Patent number: 10063810
    Abstract: Computing devices may implement instant video communication connections for video communications. Connection information for mobile computing devices may be maintained. A request to initiate an instant video communication may be received, and if authorized, the connection information for the particular recipient mobile computing device may be accessed. Video communication data may then be sent to the recipient mobile computing device according to the connection information so that the video communication data may be displayed at the recipient device as it is received. New connection information for different mobile computing devices may be added, or updates to existing connection information may also be performed. Connection information for some mobile computing devices may be removed.

  • Patent number: 10038734
    Abstract: In some embodiments, a telecommunication network manager can receive input regarding quality information for a plurality of data paths among a plurality of endpoint devices. The telecommunication network manager can receive statistical information from these endpoints and make decisions on bandwidth optimization for a group of calls sharing the same infrastructure. The telecommunication network manager can recommend rate changes on other endpoints using the same network infrastructure to mitigate against packet loss for a more important data path.
