Data Flow Congestion Prevention Or Control Patents (Class 370/229)
  • Patent number: 12010023
    Abstract: In a network congestion handling method, a first network device determines a target port, where the target port is an egress port that is in a pre-congestion state or a congestion state. The first network device sends a first notification to at least one second network device. The at least one second network device is capable of sending, through at least two forwarding paths, a data flow to a host corresponding to the target port. The first notification includes information of a network device to which the target port belongs and information of the target port. The first notification can enable the at least one second network device to perform an operation of avoiding network congestion. The network congestion handling method can effectively alleviate network congestion and improve network bandwidth utilization.

  • Patent number: 11989115
    Abstract: This application describes apparatus and methods for an agent-side simulator for testing chatbot systems. The agent-side simulator may be configured to mimic behavior of a human agent in a chatbot testing environment. The agent-side simulator may throttle the amount of data and the frequency of speed at which the data is processed by components of the chatbot system. The agent-side simulator may test how much data that can be processed by a chatbot system and the speed which a target volume of data can be processed by the chatbot system. The agent-side simulator may build an agent profiles for different chat conversations. A first agent profile may be used to simulate conversations that require slower response times. A second agent profile may be used to simulate conversations that require faster response times.

  • Patent number: 11855867
    Abstract: An initial test is executed to determine an end-to-end latency of a path between a source and a destination. Subsequent tests incrementally target each node of the path for measurement of metric values indicative of delay of the nodes (e.g., latency, jitter, and packet loss). As tests are performed incrementally for each node, the maximum observed latency is tracked and used for calculating timeout thresholds. For the first hop, the timeout threshold is determined relative to the end-to-end latency; for subsequent hops, the timeout threshold is determined relative to the maximum non-timeout latency measured for a previous hop. Each test is performed N times to obtain additional values of delay metrics for each node. Upon completion of the N passes through the path, the resulting delay metric values determined for each test set are aggregated to yield a single, comprehensive result set.

  • Patent number: 11818020
    Abstract: Methods and systems described herein describe a central server that continuously monitors network connectivity of remote computers operated by remote employees. When a customer establishes an electronic communication session with the server (e.g., call or chat session), the server identifies one or more applications to be executed to satisfy the customer's requests. The server then calculates a network traffic value threshold corresponding to a minimum network connectivity attributes needed to execute the identified applications. The server then route the customer's electronic communication session to an agent whose remote computer satisfies the network traffic value threshold.

    Abstract: The described technology provides a system and method for identifying cells in a wireless communication network for corrective action to improve coverage and capacity of the network. A coverage analysis tool receives network traffic information, extracts call or data traffic information for a particular radio access technology (RAT), and determines based on radio frequency (RF) information and distances between serving cells and call data, and serving cells and adjacent neighbor cells, whether the serving cells are over-shooter or under-shooter cells. The coverage analysis tool recommends remedial action to improve the network's coverage and capacity including adjusting antenna tilt and/or adjusting transmit power.

  • Patent number: 11792101
    Abstract: A software and/or hardware facility for scoring the quality of traffic to a site accessible via the Internet or other network. The facility extracts data from one or more data logs that are obtained from a publisher, advertiser, or third party. A multi-factor analysis in the form of a rule set is applied by the facility to the data. The analysis of the data identifies agent actions that are desirable to a publisher, advertiser, or third party. The facility generates a relative score for each agent action. The score may be used to assess the quality of traffic received by a network site. Lower scores are indicative of traffic having little value, whereas higher scores are indicative of traffic having greater value. The score may be provided to an advertising network and used to charge a variable amount for advertisements based on the quality of traffic that the advertisements receive.

  • Patent number: 11777861
    Abstract: Periodic requests for to Packet Flow Description, PFD, data updates on all Application Ids generate a constant background load in several network function nodes, even if applications have not been updated. There is provided a mechanism to optimize PFD management updates in a telecommunication network, whereby PFD data for a selected number of applications are stored and updated permanently, whilst PFD data for other applications are only temporarily stored so that storage and updates are released when these other applications are not in use. A list of permanent Application Ids is configured for the most frequently used applications. When a control rule specifies an Application Id not included in the list of permanent Application Ids, the specified Application Id is included in a list of temporary Application Ids, which are periodically checked and, when not used, are removed from the list of temporary Application Ids.
