  • Publication number: 20200022217
    Abstract: In hybrid access broadband systems, bandwidth provided via a Digital Subscriber Line or cable broadband link is supplemented with bandwidth provided by a Long Term Evolution cellular data link. A user device having both wireless local area network and LTE network access is used to simulate an LTE modem. The performance of a data connection to the LTE network and a home gateway via a WLAN is measured at various locations within the user premises. The results are processed to determine the hybrid access benefit provided at the various locations and a recommended location for installation of the LTE modem is determined for the user premises.

  • Patent number: 9144052
    Abstract: A method for determining a location of a mobile apparatus based on the presence of wireless access point signals. The received wireless signal strength from a plurality of observed wireless access points is compared with profiles each relevant to a different user context and containing a plurality of previously registered wireless access point signal strengths around a previously registered location. The location of the mobile apparatus is determined based on the profile most closely matching the collection of observed wireless access points. Wireless access points present in the profile but not observed are ignoring during the matching process.

  • Publication number: 20070250841
    Abstract: A system for synchronizing application programs which together provide a multi-modal user interface, which comprises multiple application programs which provide the various interface of the multi-modal interface and which are in communication with a synchronization manager. Means are provided to detect status changes in the application programs and to communicate such status changes, in the form of data updates to the synchronization manager. The synchronization manager is operative to communicate such a data update to the application program in which the data update did not originate so that the application programs are synchronized.
