    Abstract: The current document discloses systems and methods that implement access controls for service providers. When a client requests access to a service provider, but does not satisfy the conditions for non-limited access, the service provider provides limited access to the services based at least in part on a limited access policy. The limited access policy establishes a limitation that defines when the limited access to the service provider expires. In some implementations, the service provider issues a signed access token to the client, and the access token includes an expiration value that is updated when service requests are processed. When the access token expires, access to the service is terminated.

  • Patent number: 11190973
    Abstract: Technologies for link-bandwidth-aware routing are disclosed. In order to avoid congestion while still allowing link bandwidth to be decreased in order to save power, a network switch may select a port to send a packet over based on the present link bandwidth of the data links connected to the various output ports of the network switch. The network switch preferentially sends the packet over the minimal output port, or, if the minimal output port is congested, over one of the ports with the highest available link bandwidth. If the link bandwidth of the data link connected to the selected output port is not high enough, the network switch will automatically dynamically increase the link bandwidth of the data link as necessary.

  • Patent number: 11044655
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for performing an inter-master eNodeB (MeNB) handover procedure without secondary eNB (SeNB) change in a wireless communication system is provided. A source MeNB transmits a handover request message including a first indication of a SeNB to a target MeNB. The first indication may correspond to a SeNB identifier (ID). Upon receiving the handover request message including the first indication, the target MeNB transmits a SeNB addition request message including a second indication of a UE, served by the SeNB, to the SeNB. The second indication may correspond to an old SeNB UE X2AP ID, which was allocated by the SeNB. Upon receiving the SeNB addition request message including the second indication, the SeNB may transmit a SeNB addition acknowledge message including a third indication of keeping bearers of the SeNB from the SeNB.

  • Patent number: 10965585
    Abstract: This application provides a method for transmitting path load information and a network node. The method includes: obtaining, by the network node, M pieces of path load information; aggregating, by the network node into one load metric based on the M pieces of path load information, load of all shortest paths that are from the network node to the destination node and that pass through M adjacent nodes corresponding to the M pieces of path load information, where the load metric indicates total load of all the shortest paths from the network node to the destination node; and sending, by the network node, information about the load metric to another adjacent node other than the M adjacent nodes of all adjacent nodes of the network node.

  • Patent number: 10958506
    Abstract: A system and method predict risks of failure or performance issues in a network to predictively position traffic flows in the network. For a traffic flow through a network, first data accumulated in a header of packets for the traffic flow is obtained, which header is populated by network elements along a path of the traffic flow through the network. Second data is obtained about the network in general including other network elements not along the path of the traffic flow. Machine learning analysis is performed to derive rules that characterize failure or performance risk issues in the network. The rules and topology data describing a topology of the network are applied to a model to create a topological graphical representation indicating failure or performance issues in the network that affect the traffic flow. A path for the traffic flow is modified based on the topological graphical representation.

  • Patent number: 10931799
    Abstract: An apparatus for handling resets corresponding to multiple reset domains comprises a transport network interconnecting elements to enable data to be transferred from one element to another, ingress circuitry to couple elements to the transport network, and egress circuitry to couple the transport network to the elements. The ingress circuitry couples source elements to the transport network, and is responsive to receiving data from a source element to generate at least one transport packet in order to send that data over the transport network. Each transport packet comprises a reset domain indicator indicative of the reset domain in which the source element operates. The egress circuitry couples the transport network to destination elements and, whilst a reset of a particular reset domain is asserted, discards transport packets for which the reset domain indicator indicates the particular reset domain.

  • Patent number: 10904150
    Abstract: A source switching device in a switching system receives information measured by a target switching device in the switching system. The information is indicative of an amount of data received in a given amount of time by the target switching device via each of two or more first links coupled to the target switching device. The source switching device determines, based at least in part on the information received from the target device, a path, from among multiple paths from the source switching device to the target switching device, for transmission of a packet flow directed to the target switching device. The source switching device transmits, via the determined path for transmission of the packet flow to the target device, one or more packets belonging to the packet flow.
