  • Publication number: 20200304510
    Abstract: Current discovery mechanisms lack capabilities, such as capabilities related to permissions associated with a given registrant for example. In an example embodiment, a registrant of a service layer can communicate with a network node that hosts the service layer. The network node may receive a discovery request for a resource from the registrant. The discovery may request include various context. For example, the context of the discovery request may be indicative of an operation that the registrant intends to perform on the resource, a role that the registrant intends to assume if the registrant accesses the resource, a location in which the registrant intends to access the resource, or a subscription plan that the registrant intends to use if the registrant accesses the resource. Based on the context of the discovery request, the network node may determine whether one or more resources at the service layer satisfy the discovery request.

  • Patent number: 10708376
    Abstract: Presented herein is a messaging system architecture that is referred to as an “Open Message Bus” (OMB). The OMB is a messaging system infrastructure that facilitates connectivity and communication between services. The OMB backbone may offer infrastructure services that can be leveraged by all services that connect to the OMB.

  • Patent number: 10587701
    Abstract: The present application is directed to a method for registering with a service layer. The method includes the step of forming a registration group of one or more applications. The method also includes a step of receiving a request to join the registration group, from the one or more applications based upon a review of criteria. The method also includes a step of receiving a registration preference from the one or more applications. Further, the method includes the step of performing service discovery on a network based upon the registration preference of the one or more applications in the registration group. The present application is also directed to a device for registering with a service layer. The present application is further directed to a computer-implemented method for moving from a current service layer to a new service layer.

  • Publication number: 20090281855
    Abstract: A system and method for dynamically marketing cattle is provided comprising a buyer interface, a producer interface, a network, and a cattle information server. The cattle information server receives information from the buyer interface defining a plurality of demand profiles at least one which contains information specifying a first pre-conditioning program. The cattle information server also receives information from the producer interface defining a supply profile that specifies a second pre-conditioning program and stores the demand profiles and supply profile in a database. The cattle information server searches the database to determine if one or more of the demand profiles match the supply profile based at least in part on a comparison of the first and second pre-conditioning programs and identifies at least one demand profile in response to a match between the supply profile and the demand profile.

  • Patent number: 5202976
    Abstract: A system for coordinating the measurement activity of a plurality of emulators and their associated internal analyzers uses a bus with three signal lines. A READY signal is set false by any emulator that initiates a break (a transition from running user code to running a monitor). The READY signal is set false by the breaking emulator at the very beginning of its break, without waiting for the resumption of the monitor program. The false ready signal is detected immediately by the other emulators, which then break in sympathy. The READY signal is further used to restart all emulators in unison. The emulator that initiated the break remains running its monitor, while the others start their monitors, determine that they did not cause the break, and then in anticipation of a restart, essentially suspend their monitors and prepared to start running user code. As each emulator becomes ready it releases the READY signal. As the last emulator becomes ready, it too releases READY, which then does true.

  • Patent number: 3966153
    Abstract: A multiple tree display stand for merchandizers of Christmas trees including horizontally disposed lumber framing members joined by pairs of specially formed brackets which interconnect the framing members at corner intersections thereof, the lower bracket of each pair having an upstruck fastener for impalement of the tree butt and the upper bracket having an upwardly open slot to receive and interengage a broad-headed nail, or the like, preset in the side of the tree trunk near the butt. The dual bracket concept cooperable with a tree with the nail in its trunk is also incorporated in an alternative embodiment usable in a water bucket or the like for use as a home Christmas tree stand. A specially prepared cut Christmas tree having a headed nail selectively located and partially driven into the side of the trunk near the butt end is also featured as part of the invention.
