  • Patent number: 11394766
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are systems and methods for establishing, using, and recovering universal digital identifiers. In an embodiment, a system establishes a universal identifier (ID) associated with a user and a device of the user. The universal ID is universal with respect to a plurality of distinct entities, has at least a suspended state and an unsuspended state, and initially is in the unsuspended state. The system transmits the universal ID to the device of the user. Thereafter, the system detects an ID-suspension event in connection with the universal ID, and responsively suspends the universal ID, including placing the universal ID in the suspended state. After suspending the universal ID, the system completes an ID-recovery process for the universal ID, and responsively unsuspends the universal ID, including placing the universal ID in the unsuspended state.

  • Patent number: 11388179
    Abstract: Systems and techniques for centralized threat intelligence are described herein. A connection may be established to a plurality of threat data sources. An anonymized set of threat data may be obtained by application of a set of privacy rules to the threat data from the plurality of threat data. A threat database may be populated with the anonymized set of threat data. A registration request may be received for a user of a device. A unique user identifier may be assigned for the user and a unique device identifier may be assigned for the device. A threat model may be generated based on a set of the characteristics from the threat database. A set of data access attributes may be received for a data access request. The data access request may be blocked based on an evaluation of the data access attributes using the threat model.

  • Patent number: 9767125
    Abstract: Configurations and applications for data signatures are disclosed. Such a data signature may be specific to a particular data element in a data set, and may define this particular data element in relation to one or more other data elements. These data signatures may be used for any appropriate purpose. For instance, data signatures of this type may be generated from a given data set and may be used to analyze this data set in at least some respect, including to identify one or more features in the data set (e.g., for feature extraction purposes). Data signatures of this type may also be used in at least some fashion to generate a presentation or output that relates to the associated data set (including digitally on an appropriate display, as well as in “hard copy” form).

  • Patent number: 9628181
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed that generally pertain to provisioning an optical network unit (ONU) by an optical line terminal (OLT) of a passive optical network (PON). An exemplary provisioning system includes a wireless reader incorporated into the ONU and a transponder unit attached to a fiber optic cable coupled to the ONU. The transponder unit includes a storage element in which is stored provisioning information, such a registration ID associated with the ONU. The wireless reader automatically obtains the provisioning information from the transponder when the fiber optic cable is coupled to the ONU and transmits the provisioning information to the OLT via the fiber optic cable as a part of a discovery procedure. The transmission of the provisioning information in this manner eliminates the need for a service technician to visit a customer premise and manually provide the provisioning information via a POTS port of the ONU.

  • Patent number: 9160633
    Abstract: A system for dynamically learning virtual local area network (VLAN) tags comprises a switching element having a VLAN table and a media access control (MAC) table. For at least one VLAN, the switching element is configured to dynamically learn VLAN tags for packets carried by the VLAN in order to build the VLAN table and to then use mappings of the VLAN table, rather than mappings of the MAC table, to make forwarding decisions for all types of packets carried by the VLAN. The MAC table is not used for forwarding decisions for packets carried by the VLAN, but it can be used to help learn the VLAN tags. In particular, the switching element can use the MAC table to selectively trap packets when they are useful for learning VLAN tags and to prevent MAC learning traps for packets carrying VLAN tags previously learned by the switching element.

  • Patent number: 9146845
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally pertains to systems and methods for provisioning nodes of a packet network. Rather than requiring a user to individually set the configuration parameters of each node to achieve a desired behavior, the user is presented with options of various predefined network behaviors and/or the option of customizing a network behavior, such as a queuing, scheduling, or shaping profile, and each node is configured to automatically provision its configuration parameters to implement the desired behavior. Information is passed from node-to-node so that each node can automatically provision its settings to implement such behavior. Thus, the network is automatically provisioned thereby facilitating the provisioning process. Automatic provisioning also helps to ensure a correct network configuration. Indeed, since the provisioning is automatic, at least some manual provisioning errors may be prevented.

  • Patent number: 9127122
    Abstract: There is provided an article comprising a copolyester containing residues of neopentyl glycol, 2,2,4,4-tetraalkyl 1,3-cyclobutanediol such as 2,2,4,4-tetramethyl 1,3-cyclobutanediol, tin atoms, aluminum atoms, an alkali or alkaline earth metal atoms such as lithium atoms, optionally phosphorus atoms, and having an It.V. of at least 0.55 dL/g, and Tg of at least 90° C. Such higher It.V. copolyesters can now be made having high Tg, good thermal stability, and higher insertion of 2,2,4,4-tetraalkyl 1,3-cyclobutanediol.

  • Patent number: 9083635
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure generally pertain to systems and methods for policing packet networks. A system in accordance with an exemplary embodiment of the present disclosure includes an enqueue policer positioned within an intermediate node of a packet network prior to at least one egress queue. The enqueue policer utilizes information related to destination end-point capacity limits for a given customer in order to police packets based on such information at a relatively early point in the packet network. Thus, a packet that would have been dropped by an egress node due to capacity limits is dropped by the intermediate node thereby preventing the packet from needlessly consuming bandwidth of the network beyond the intermediate node.
