  • Patent number: 11627064
    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.

The method for multicasting includes the following steps of: receiving, by a base station, queue state information transmitted in a time division manner by different user equipments (UEs) in a multicast group; and estimating queue state information of at least another part of UEs in the multicast group according to the received queue state information of the UEs. In this way, the present disclosure can enable the resource allocated to each of the UEs by the base station to match the queue state information of the UE, thereby avoiding the waste of resources without influencing the play effect.

  • Patent number: 11483202
    Abstract: A method for automatically configuring router and a routing system are provided. The method is operated in a routing system including a router, a user equipment and an analysis platform, and the method includes the following steps. The router collects related data used by the user equipment to connect to the Internet, and stores the data in a memory. When each time the router determining that a first event meets a first preset condition, the router uploads the data to the analysis platform. The analysis platform uses a computational model to analyze the data, and stores an analysis result in the analysis platform. When the analysis platform each time determines that a second event meets a second preset condition, the analysis platform forms a configuration file, and loads the configuration file into the router, so that the router performs a configuration work according to the configuration file.

  • Patent number: 11470619
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and instrumentalities are disclosed to describe cell selection in low cost machine type communication (LC-MTC) devices. An LTC-MC device may measure a plurality of downlink signals from a plurality of cells. The LTC-MC may detect a channel condition, e.g., by determining a cell with better uplink coverage than a downlink cell. The detection of the channel condition may include measuring an uplink pathloss. The LTC-MC may report the channel condition as a decoupled channel condition, e.g., when an uplink cell is identified with uplink coverage better than the downlink cell. The channel condition may be reported, e.g., via a set of Physical Random Access Channel (PRACH) preambles. The set of PRACH preambles may be predefined. The channel condition may be reported via a higher layer signaling.

  • Patent number: 11463917
    Abstract: A user plane function receives, from a session management function, a request for at least one quality of service (QoS) report for a data flow, the request indicating: a QoS event; and a first QoS value for the QoS event. Monitoring packets for monitoring a second QoS value of the data flow are sent to a base station. A determination is made of an occurrence of the QoS event based on the second QoS value and the first QoS value. An indication of the occurrence is sent to the session management function.

  • Patent number: 11463156
    Abstract: This disclosure generally relates to systems, devices, apparatuses, products, and methods for wireless communication. For example, a communication system may include a repeater having a first communication interface that receives a control message that indicates a measurement configuration for a second communication interface of the repeater that is different than the first communication interface. The repeater receives, via the second communication interface, a first signal at the repeater from a first device. The repeater also measures a power metric associated with the first signal based on the measurement configuration. In some implementations, a base station or another device (e.g., UE), may communicate with the repeater and take one or more actions based on the power metric measured by the repeater.

  • Patent number: 11456933
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for generating and updating a performance report for a system adapted to run a plurality of flows, which enables the performance data of individual running flows to be compared to flows with a similar function. This is achieved by linking each of the running flows to one of a plurality of templates which describes a function of a flow. Each template may have an associated performance summary generated for it, based on the performance data of the running flows linked to the template. A performance report can be generated from a plurality of the performance summaries. The performance report can then be updated by running a plurality of test flows on the spare capacity of the system, while obtaining test performance data from the test flows. The test performance data can be compared to performance data of running flows on the system linked to the template.

  • Patent number: 11445573
    Abstract: Various embodiments disclosed herein provide for the provisioning of backhaul links over a 5G N R (New Radio) integrated access and backhaul (IAB) network for access nodes using non-5G radio access technologies. In this way, the IAB network can service devices that are connected to the core network via older 3GPP technologies, or even non-3GPP technologies such as Wi-Fi. An IAB mobile terminal can be provided at the end point access node to make the access node an IAB node. Using an existing internet protocol (IP) routing in the IAB network, or providing for an IP tunnel between the endpoint access node and the core network can then facilitate providing backhaul services for the non-5G access node.

  • Patent number: 11444881
    Abstract: Systems and methods for using multiple CE (congestion experienced) flags in both FECN (forward explicit congestion notification) and BECN (backward explicit congestion notification) in a high performance computing environment. An exemplary method can provide a first subnet comprising a plurality of switches, a plurality of host channel adapters, and a plurality of end nodes. The method can receive, at an end node attached to a host channel adapter, an ingress packet from a remote end node, wherein the ingress packet traversed at least a portion of the first subnet prior to being received at the end node. The method can, on receiving the ingress packet, send a response message from the end node attached to the host channel adapter to the remote end node, the response message indicating that the ingress packet experienced congestion during the traversal of the at least a portion of the first subnet.

    Abstract: In a segmented network environment, a traffic flow graph provides visibility into the connections between workloads or groups of workloads under management of a segmentation policy. Squelching rules may be applied to hide traffic in the traffic flow graph that meets specified criteria. The squelching rules may be label-based rules that enable configuration of squelching rules that apply to group of workloads and enable configurations to be rapidly updated as workloads or added or dropped from the network or as their configurations change. Additionally, squelching rules may be applied based on characteristics of the traffic data or based on an identity of an administrator viewing the traffic flow graph.
