  • Patent number: 10531406
    Abstract: Management of context and power control information enables different power control schemes for point-to-point or point-to-multipoint based on proximity services or applications. Context information may be defined as situation data about a service or application that is used to help define a power control scheme to be implemented. Power control information may be defined as control or status data for power control, which can be used for reporting or controlling the transmitting power of a peer in a P2P network. Context and power control information may be managed across multiple layers such as the application layer, service layer, media access control layer, or physical layer. Context and power control information is updated and exchanged between or among peers for context-related power control in proximity services.

  • Publication number: 20190327328
    Abstract: Systems and techniques for information-centric network data cache management are described herein. A demand metric may be calculated for a content item requested from an information-centric network (ICN). A resistance metric may be calculated for each cache node of a set of cache nodes in the ICN based on the demand metric. A topology of the set of cache nodes may be evaluated to identify a transmission cost for each cache node of the set of cache nodes. An influencer node may be selected from the set of cache nodes based on the resistance metric for the influencer node and the transmission cost for the influencer node. The content item may be cached in a data cache of the influencer node.

  • Publication number: 20190327169
    Abstract: Systems and techniques for information centric network (ICN) interworking are described herein. For example, a request may be received at a convergence layer of a node. Here, the request originates from an application on the node. A network protocol, from several available to the node, may be determined to transmit the request. The node then transmits the request via the selected network protocol.

  • Publication number: 20190327134
    Abstract: Systems and techniques for mission critical (MC) push notification mechanism in a high-reliability (HR) information centric network (ICN) are described herein. For example, a node may test network links to other nodes to classify the other nodes into proximate nodes and non-proximate nodes based on a reception metric. The node may then elect a set of leader nodes from the proximate nodes. Here, the set of leader nodes are selected based on link quality between respective leader nodes and non-proximate nodes. The node may detect an MC event and create an ICN data packet that contains data from the MC event. The node may then transmit the ICN data packet to the set of leader nodes that then relay the ICN data packet to the non-proximate nodes.

  • Publication number: 20190327148
    Abstract: Systems and techniques for information centric network (ICN) emergency data collection are described herein. For example, an event coverage area may be measured. An interest packet may be transmitted to map nodes within the coverage area. In an example, the interest packet specifies a group prefix. A group of nodes that respond to the interest packet may be selected as event detecting nodes. Then, an event subscription interest packet may be transmitted to the event-detecting nodes.

  • Publication number: 20190319890
    Abstract: Systems and techniques for information centric network (ICN) approximate computation caching are described herein. For example, an interest packet that includes a feature set of input data may be received. A node may then perform a search of a local data store using the feature set to determine an approximate computation result cached in the local data store. Here, the approximate computation result may be based on input data that differs from the input data named in the interest packet. The node may then return the approximate computation result to an author of the interest packet in response to the search.

  • Patent number: 10404793
    Abstract: Methods and systems are disclosed for determining context information for one or more peers to be used in a peer discovery and/or peer association process(es) and/or to otherwise facilitate P2P proximity communications. For example, a method for determining peer context information may include receiving a context-aware identifier (CAID). The CAID may include one or more items of context information associated with the peer in addition to an indication of an identity of the peer. A first portion of the CAID may be decoded to determine a first item of context information associated with the peer. The first portion of the CAID may be decodable without having to process a payload portion of the message. It may be determined whether to continue processing one or more of the CAID or the message based on the first item of context information. The CAID may be used in discovery and/or association procedure(s).

  • Publication number: 20190166476
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and instrumentalities may implement service-based discovery in a network, such as a 3GPP or 3GPP2 network. A Discovery Server may be used to query and find services offered by the network or by entities that interface with the network. Situational context information or policy information, or both, may be communicated to the discovery server so that the Discovery Server can provide context-aware and policy-based discovery services. The Discovery Server may be used to control which of the entities that interface with the network can discover one another. The Discovery Server may support queries based on, for example, the type of MTC entity, the type of services hosted on the entity, the availability times of the entity, types of protocols supported, levels of Quality of Service (QoS) supported, and MTC-IWF services.

  • Patent number: 10230790
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and apparatus embodiments are described herein for context information management at the medium access control layer. In one embodiment, a system comprises a plurality of peers which communicate via peer-to-peer communications. In the system, context information may be exchanged at the MAC layer. Examples of context information include, without limitation, location information, mobility information, device capability, user information, an application category, multi-hop information, a channel condition, application information, association identifiers, and device information. Each of the plurality of peers may include a context manager that resides on each peer device. For example, a first context manager that resides on a first peer of the plurality of peers may exchange context information with a second context manager that resides on a second peer of the plurality of peers.

  • Patent number: 10212697
    Abstract: Embodiments contemplate wireless communication that may include sending machine type communication (MTC) application data from a services capability server (SCS) to an MTC user equipment (UE/WTRU) using a device trigger. The device trigger may be used to instruct an MTC device application to initiate communications with an SCS. Embodiments also contemplate that a first device trigger (DT) request may be received from a first wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) and a machine-type-communication inter-working function (MTC-IWF) may be determined in response to the first DT request. A second DT request may be sent to the MTC-IWF; and a first DT response may be received from the MTC-IWF. The first DT response may include a first information regarding a second WTRU.

  • Patent number: 10194261
    Abstract: A machine-to-machine (M2M) gateway is configured with a service capability layer (SCL) and includes a storage unit, a network interface and a processor. The storage unit stores rules for allocating resources in a resource tree. The resources include a functions collection resource of function sub-resources, at least one of which represents a function that generates contextual cues from content and a corresponding semantic description. The processor also receives requests to create new function sub-resources in the collection and creates new function sub-resources in the resource tree in response to the requests. The processor receives other requests targeting the new function sub-resources. The processor generates high-level contextual information, using the new function, based on content data and the associated semantic description of the content data received in the other requests, and routes data in the M2M network based on the generated information.
