  • Patent number: 11140025
    Abstract: Systems and techniques for mission critical (MC) push notification mechanism in a high-reliability (HR) information centric network (ICN) are described herein. For example, a node may test network links to other nodes to classify the other nodes into proximate nodes and non-proximate nodes based on a reception metric. The node may then elect a set of leader nodes from the proximate nodes. Here, the set of leader nodes are selected based on link quality between respective leader nodes and non-proximate nodes. The node may detect an MC event and create an ICN data packet that contains data from the MC event. The node may then transmit the ICN data packet to the set of leader nodes that then relay the ICN data packet to the non-proximate nodes.

  • Publication number: 20210281356
    Abstract: A method can be performed by a first node for determining a parameter of physical (PHY) layer circuitry of a second node. The method can include implementing a cascaded hierarchy of techniques to determine, based on an electrical signal from a second node, a parameter of the PHY layer circuitry of the second node, and causing an antenna of the first node to transmit an electromagnetic wave consistent with the determined parameter.

  • Publication number: 20210258988
    Abstract: Systems and methods of using machine-learning to improve communications across different networks are described. A CIRN node identifies whether it is within range of a source and destination node in a different network using explicit information or a machine-learning classification model. A neural network is trained to avoid interference using rewards associated with reduced interference or retransmission levels in each network or improved throughput at the CIRN node. A machine-learning scheduling algorithm determines a relay mode of the CIRN node for source and destination node transmissions. The scheduling algorithm is based on the probability of successful transmission between the source and destination nodes multiplied by a collaboration score for successful transmission and the probability of unsuccessful transmission of the particular packet multiplied by a collaboration score for unsuccessful transmission.

  • Patent number: 11044309
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for optimizing the operations of an ICN, particularly for an ICN with clustered nodes. A cluster head node may function as an orchestrator and a coordinator for efficient caching, routing, and computing and for co-existence of ICN and IP nodes in the network. A content store of an ICN router may include an indication of the time after which data expires and the new data is to be swapped in place of the expired data after that point in time. Digital rights management (DRM) enforcement is provided by managing access to a DRM engine in at least one of the ICN nodes in a cluster. Congestion control is provided by minimizing the number of ICN scoped interest requests and thereby minimizing the potentially high volume of data responses. These techniques optimize interest packet forwarding and processing through collaboration with neighboring ICN nodes.

    Abstract: To address technical problems facing producer and consumer mobility in cellular ICN/NDN networks, a technical solution includes leveraging device tracking during handover in the cellular system to optimize cache replacement and route updates during handover. This solution also improves performance by advance caching and route update during mobility handling, which reduces or eliminates interest packet flooding and latency for upcoming potential content request and retrieval. This solution also improves performance by operating based on the observed popularity of the content, and based on the mobility patterns of the consumer and producer.
