  • Patent number: 11330546
    Abstract: Embodiments herein registers Asset Owners (AOs) and AO applications to a location, aggregation, and insight (LAI) service that are part of the same identity federation. When registering the AO with the LAI service, the AO selects which of a plurality of Identity Providers (IDPs) it has a relationship with, and the LAI service can then bind those IDPs to the AO application. This binding associates respective realms (e.g., domains) corresponding to the selected IDPs to the AO application. Later, when a device owned by the AO roams to a visited network (VN), the LAI service can then use a realm identified from a device ID provided by the device to identify the ID of the AO application. The LAI service then enables the VN to transmit a location of the device to the AO application. In one embodiment, the VN obtains consent from the AO before sharing location data.

  • Patent number: 11184364
    Abstract: Techniques for device connectivity are provided. A request to discover available cast devices is received from a first user device, and a first logically defined space is identified, where a first user associated with the first user device is authorized to access the space. A set of cast devices that correspond to the first logically defined space is determined. A first local port on a gateway device is allocated to a first cast device of the set of cast devices. Further, a response to the request is generated, where the response indicates the first local port on the gateway device. The response is transmitted to the first user device.
