  • Publication number: 20170155471
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a fine-grained link adaptation mechanism that allows for link adaptation at a resource block granularity. To this end, the fine-grained link adaptation mechanism can determine the effective signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio for individual user equipment in a particular cell at the resource block granularity. This way, the transmitter can use the effective signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio to adapt the modulation and coding scheme at the resource block granularity. The fine-grained link adaptation mechanism can be introduced to a long term evolution (LTE) network without substantial redesign of the LTE network.

  • Patent number: 8972459
    Abstract: The described implementations relate to updating views in a database system. One implementation can identify an active view that retrieves records from a database and determine one or more physical tables in the database that are referenced by the active view. The implementation can track one or more columns in the physical tables that are used by the active view and identify a change to the physical tables in a transaction log of the database. If the change does not affect the one or more columns, the change can be treated as an ignorable change for the active view.

  • Patent number: 8433559
    Abstract: In one example, a phrase analyzer may analyze a text input stream to identify phrases contained in the text input stream. The phrase analyzer may receive a specification, which includes dictionaries of phrases and synonyms, and a specification of the phrases, or sequences of phrases to be matched. The phrase analyzer may compare the input stream to the specification and may produce, as output, an identification of which phrases appear in the input stream, and where in the input stream those phrases occur.
