  • Patent number: 10491530
    Abstract: Provided are a communication system and a communication device that allow a reception node to estimate delay time, a generation time point or the like of a message. A delay time estimation part in an ECU determines whether a message received by itself is transmitted in sequence with another message without being provided with time information by a transmission node. If the received message is transmitted in sequence with another message, the received message may be delayed due to arbitrary processing. Thus, the delay time estimation part checks the priority of one or more sequential messages preceding the received message, and estimates delay time of the received message occurring due to the arbitrary processing in accordance with the priority of each message. A generation time point estimation part estimates the time point when the received message is generated by an ECU, based on the delay time estimated.

    Abstract: Various aspects of the disclosure relate to allocating control signaling resources for multiple carrier scenarios. In an example implementation, N-to-1 mapping is used between forward link control signaling resource allocation indices (e.g., control channel elements) and return link control signaling resources (e.g., for ACK/NACK signaling) indices in each return link component carrier. A collision between forward link control signaling assignments for different user terminals (UTs) may occur when UT-specific search spaces overlap each other. Such a collision may be avoided, for example, by scheduling different UTs on different return link component carriers, scheduling return link grants instead of forward link grants, or scheduling a different forward link control signaling candidate that is associated with a different forward link control signaling resource allocation index.

  • Patent number: 10425459
    Abstract: Technologies for seamless data streaming include a control server and one or more client computing devices. A client computing device receives user presence data indicative of whether a user is nearby from one or more sensors. The client computing device may receive user interest data indicative of the user's interest level in the current data stream from one or more sensors. The control server identifies available client computing devices based on the user presence data, selects a target client computing device, and causes the data stream to transition from the current client computing device to the target client computing device. The target client computing device may be selected based on proximity of the user or the user's interest level in the data stream. The volume or balance of the data stream may be adjusted to provide a smooth transition between client computing devices. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 10425338
    Abstract: A timer is associated with a packet of a flow from a VM at an application executing in conjunction with a vSwitch in a host system, using a processor assigned to the vSwitch in the host system. At the application, using a counter, a number of packets of the flow that are received and acknowledged in response packets is counted, the response packets being received from a receiver of the flow. At the application, using a period measured by the timer and the number of received packets acknowledged as counted by the counter, a CWND value is computed. The CWND value is applied to the flow at the vSwitch such that the vSwitch transmits, from the flow to a network, only a number of packets up to the CWND value.

  • Patent number: 10412198
    Abstract: Methods, non-transitory computer readable media, network traffic management apparatuses, and network traffic management systems that generate a duration corresponding to a current one of a plurality of states in a TCP connection. The duration is generated based on a difference between a stored time recorded at a previous transition to the current one of the states and a current time. The duration is stored or output as associated with the current one of the states. The stored time recorded at the previous transition to the current one of the states is then replaced with the current time. A determination is made when one or more TCP configurations should be modified based on the duration for the current one of the states. The one or more TCP configurations are automatically modified to improve TCP performance, when the determining indicates that the one or more TCP configurations should be modified.

  • Patent number: 10397816
    Abstract: Methods, apparatus, and computer-readable media for wireless communication may involve techniques for throughput estimation. An expected air time parameter may be used as a parameter for estimating throughput. The expected air time parameter may be indicative of an estimated air time fraction obtainable for communications using an access point (AP), for example, between a wireless station (STA) and the AP. Either the expected air time parameter or an estimated air time fraction determined (e.g., calculated) from the expected air time parameter may be transmitted from the AP to the STA (or other communication device) to allow the STA (or other communication device) to determine an estimated throughput for communications using the AP.

  • Patent number: 10389662
    Abstract: A summary of activity transpiring in at least one messaging conversation is presented on a region of a display in a summary window. Each messaging conversation summary includes one or more infographics indicating in real-time whether participant activity in the respective conversation is increasing or decreasing over time. In this way a user can monitor a single window in a single display rather than many windows occupying a series of displays. In some implementations the user may designate one or more of the summaries as an active window. The active window may include more information in its summary that the summaries for the remaining messaging conversation summaries which are not designated as active windows. In some cases the additional information included in the active window which is not available in the non-active windows includes the ongoing conversation of the participants.

  • Patent number: 10362619
    Abstract: According to an aspect, an existing end-to-end bearer data path of communication between a wireless device and an endpoint in a core network is modified. The wireless device receives parametric information identifying respective service capabilities of network nodes in the core network that are available for forming alternate end-to-end bearer data paths of communication between the wireless device and the endpoint. The parametric information is used to determine that a more favorable end-to-end bearer data path of communication between the wireless device and the endpoint is available. The more favorable end-to-end bearer data path has a more favorable service capability in the core network as compared to the existing end-to-end bearer data path. The wireless device requests a path modification from the existing end-to-end bearer data path to the more favorable end-to-end bearer data path.
