  • Publication number: 20220014455
    Abstract: A system described herein may provide for the tracking and/or calculating of performance metrics associated with a network by marking traffic and determining performance characteristics of the marked traffic. Such performance characteristics or metrics may include throughput, latency, jitter, and/or other metrics. The marking may be performed on “user” traffic, which may be traffic that is generated or sent via the network by an application or service (e.g., a voice call service, a content streaming service, etc.), as opposed to “synthetic” or “test” traffic, which is traffic that is generated or sent for the purposes of testing performance of the network (e.g., traffic related to a “speed test” or the like).

  • Patent number: 11197228
    Abstract: A system described herein may provide a technique for the discovery and connection of Mesh Distributed Units (“MDUs”), which may establish a mesh topology and perform wireless backhaul of data between a core network and a User Equipment (“UE”). Multiple MDUs in an MDU network may be connected to establish an MDU route. One or more connected MDUs may broadcast an indication that the MDU is available to connect, one or more performance metrics, or an MDU performance score based on performance metrics. This broadcast may iteratively repeat in order to refine the mesh network topology in an ongoing process.

  • Publication number: 20210368393
    Abstract: A system described herein may provide a technique for adaptive and dynamic beamforming in a radio access network (“RAN”) of a wireless network, based on information received from User Equipment (“UEs”) connected to the RAN, and/or information that can be attributed to UEs and/or users associated with UEs connected to the RAN. For example, a Beam Load Balancing System (“BLBS”) of some embodiments may use such information to identify beams, of one or more base stations, for which a configuration should be modified in order to provide RF connectivity to one or more UEs in a manner that optimizes Quality of Service (“QoS”) provided to the UEs and/or efficiently utilizes network resources.

  • Publication number: 20210352574
    Abstract: A method, a device, and a non-transitory storage medium are described in which a mapping table is transmitted to a user device. The mapping table includes, for each entry, an index, a frequency band, and wireless services available on the frequency band. Index information corresponding to a frequency band and wireless service available in a location associated with the user device is communicated to the user device. An icon associated with the wireless service is displayed on a display of the user device. A network device determines that the user device is using the wireless service to communicate via a wireless network and transmits, to a core network, an indication that the user device is using the wireless service on the frequency band.

  • Patent number: 11172377
    Abstract: Systems and methods for radio beam management for a wireless network are described. An illustrative system includes a memory configured to store instructions and a processor configured to execute the instructions to determine that a user equipment (UE) device is located at a geographic location, determine a prioritization of beams associated with the geographic location, and direct the UE device to apply the prioritization of beams associated with the geographic location for beam scanning at the geographic location. The prioritization of beams may be generated based on historical beam signal strengths at the geographic location. In certain examples, an analytics engine applies a machine learning algorithm to generate the prioritization of beams based on inputs that include historical beam signal strengths reported by UE devices at the geographic location.

  • Patent number: 11038944
    Abstract: Technology to provide improved quality-of-experience-aware multimedia streaming is disclosed. Several types of communications that can be made between clients and servers are described. These communications enable improvements to current approaches that are used to achieve hyper-text transfer protocol (HTTP) adaptive streaming. These messages can be used in conjunction with computer circuitry configured to: determine a bandwidth available to the server for transmitting HTTP adaptive streaming content to a plurality of clients; receive HTTP requests from the plurality of clients for representations offered by the server in a manifest file for the HTTP adaptive streaming; and calculate an availability of each representation that is offered in the manifest file for the server. The availability can be calculated, at least in part, based on the determined bandwidth. The availability of each representation can be communicated from the server to the plurality of clients.

  • Publication number: 20210092650
    Abstract: A system described herein may provide a technique for the handover of a User Equipment (“UE”) from a first Distributed Unit (“DU”) of a wireless network to a second DU in a manner that minimizes or interruption of the delivery of traffic to the UE. When the UE is attached to a first DU, one or more second DUs may be identified as candidates for attachment to the UE. The one or more second DUs may be pre-loaded with context information and/or traffic for the UE. In some embodiments, a third mesh DU (“MDU”) may be identified as a candidate for attachment to a first MDU that is attached to a second MDU. The third MDU may be pre-loaded with context information and/or traffic for the first MDU.

  • Patent number: 10917295
    Abstract: A wireless network provides differentiated service via a first management device that manages and provisions resources that are located in an edge cloud of the wireless network separate from a second management device that manages and provisions resources that are located in a core cloud of the wireless network. The first management device may provision the edge cloud resources to provide various functionalities and services of the wireless network in a localized manner to user equipment (“UEs”) that are associated with low latency or high reliability requirements. The second management device may provision the core cloud resources to provide the same or different functionalities and services of the wireless network in a centralized manner to UEs that are not associated with low latency and high reliability requirements.

  • Patent number: 10660104
    Abstract: Systems and methods described herein provide for coordination of inactivity procedures between wireless stations in a multi-RAT dual connectivity scenario. A wireless station identifies, for an end device, a multi-radio access technology (RAT) dual connectivity scenario with dedicated bearers and detects inactivity for a bearer using the master wireless station. In response to the detecting, the master wireless station sends, to a secondary wireless station, an inactivity status check for another bearer of the multi-RAT dual connectivity scenario. When a response to the inactivity status check is received from the secondary wireless station within a designated time window, the master wireless station waits for a release request from the secondary wireless station and initiates an inactivity procedure for the end device when the release request is received.
