  • Patent number: 11917259
    Abstract: A Data Over Cable Interface Specification (DOCSIS) node includes a first DOCSIS port and a second DOCSIS port. The node also includes a plurality of radio frequency (RF) ports. A plurality of client devices can be coupled to the RF ports. A RF switching network is coupled between the first DOCSIS port and the second DOCSIS port, and the plurality of RF ports. One or more control circuits can switch the RF switching network between at least a first state and a second state. The switching of the RF switching network allows the one or more control circuits to identify which client devices are coupled to which RF ports of the node.

  • Publication number: 20230120416
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a computing device includes a memory device storing instructions, and a processing device communicatively coupled to the memory device. The processing device executes the instructions to execute a computer-implemented system configured to manage items in a self-describing data system, wherein the items are associated with a user interface and the computer-implemented system is associated with a first version; execute a third-party computer-implemented system configured to execute an application that accesses the user interface, wherein the third-party computer-implemented system is associated with a second version; and execute a test automation framework (TAF) configured to use the third-party computer-implemented system to perform tests on the user interface associated with the items. The TAF comprises libraries including code specific to the first version of the computer-implemented system and code specific to the second version of the third-party computer-implemented system.

  • Publication number: 20230076649
    Abstract: A ball retriever assembly for retrieving and storing balls includes a hopper body defining a hollow storage space therein and at least one attachment configured for removable coupling to the hopper body. Each of the attachments includes a retrieval structure configured for unidirectional passage of one of the balls through the corresponding one of the attachments. A lid is configured for removable coupling to the hopper body as well as each of the attachments. The lid is adjustable between a ball retrieval configuration wherein the lid encloses an end of the hollow storage space and a ball removal configuration wherein the lid forms a stand for maintaining an upright and open configuration of the hopper body. The different attachments configured for removable coupling to the hopper body allow for the unidirectional passage of different ranges of outer ball diameters.

  • Publication number: 20220383231
    Abstract: Systems and methods for evaluating construction of structures are disclosed. Building information modeling (BIM) data is received in a non-standardized format for a set of structures undergoing construction. Scheduling data is received associated with construction of each structure in the set of structures. A database is accessed that stores construction data that associates multiple elements of construction projects in a hierarchical configuration. Using the BIM data and the scheduling data, a model is generated that standardizes how particular elements of a particular structure relate to the multiple elements in the hierarchical configuration. Using the generated model, a status of construction of the particular structure is generated. In some implementations, the model is generated and/or trained using machine learning.

  • Patent number: 11509557
    Abstract: A method receives error measurements from network elements. Groups of network elements are generated based on similarity of error measurements and a bitloading profile for each of the groups of network elements is generated based on the error measurements for each respective group. Each bitloading profile includes a modulation level determined to be sufficient for transporting content to respective groups of network elements. The method then assigns a set of bitloading profiles to each network element based on the groups of network elements and the bitloading profile generated for each of the groups. The bitloading profile for each of the groups of network elements and the assigned set of bitloading profiles are output to a network device. The network device uses the bitloading profiles to modulate content sent to respective customer premise equipment.

  • Patent number: 11084324
    Abstract: A semi-trailer wheel restraint system having at least one bearing or swivel, or a combination of bearing(s) and swivel(s), and one or more cable sections and one or more hub cab attachments for receipt into one or more wheel assemblies and through a hollow core of the trailer's axle. During a wheel bearing failure, the wheel restraint system keeps the loose wheel assembly near the end of the axle by anchoring it to the opposite-end's hub cap, thereby preventing a run-away wheel assembly and providing an operator of the truck an opportunity to safely stop the rig.
