  • Patent number: 11368401
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a device obtains, from a plurality of routers in a network, a set of routing patches that collectively specify a first set of paths in the network, a second set of paths in the network, and time periods during which traffic is to be rerouted from one of the first set of paths to one of the second set of paths in the network. The device identifies overlapping path segments of the second set of paths in the network. The device makes, based in part on the overlapping path segments, a prediction that two or more of the set of routing patches will cause congestion along paths with overlapping path segments. The device adjusts, based on the prediction, the set of routing patches, to avoid causing the congestion.

  • Patent number: 11363663
    Abstract: A base station may transmit, to a user equipment (UE), an indication of parameters (e.g., thresholds) for radio link monitoring (RLM). The UE may monitor active beam pairs in accordance with the indication. In some cases, the UE may configure or may be configured (e.g., by a base station) to transmit reference signals for triggering an RLM operation based on the monitored beam pairs. After triggering, the base station may perform an RLM operation with the UE. Additionally or alternatively, a base station may configure a UE with a beam monitoring configuration that enables uplink beam monitoring. The configuration may indicate one or more active beam pairs for uplink transmissions from the UE, and the base station may perform an RLM operation on the indicated beam pairs. Based on RLM operations (e.g., joint uplink and downlink beam monitoring), beam pairs may be reestablished or newly established.

  • Patent number: 11272412
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. A user equipment (UE) may autonomously initiate a handover procedure and select a target base station for the handover procedure. The UE may measure a signal from the source base station or the target base station, or both, and the UE may determine whether specific criteria at both base stations are within a pre-configured range. If the criteria at both base stations are within the pre-configured range, the UE may identify the target base station as a potential candidate for a handover. Accordingly, when the UE determines that radio conditions with the source base station are deteriorating (or fall below a threshold), the UE may initiate a handover to the target base station autonomously and without specific direction from the source base station.

The UE may then send a request to the cellular network indicating the requested QoS parameters, and the network may adjust the QoS configuration of the bearer in response. The UE and the network may perform routine QoS measurements and exchange information in order to adaptively maintain and optimize the QoS configuration. These techniques may tend to provide more appropriate QoS to the application, which may improve user experience.

  • Patent number: 11121829
    Abstract: A method and device for retransmission processing are provided. The method includes that: a transmission side transmits a detection indication to a receiving side, the detection indication being used to indicate the receiving side to feed back a receiving state of multiple Acknowledged Mode Data (AMD) Protocol Data Units (PDU) sent by the transmission side; the transmission side receives a state report sent by the receiving side, the state report being used to indicate a receiving state of at least one AMD PDU in the multiple AMD PDUs; and if a Sequence Number (SN) of a first AMD PDU of the at least one AMD PDU is equal to a first value, the transmission side stops transmitting the detection indication for the multiple AMD PDUs to the receiving side, the first value being less than or equal to a maximum SN in the SNs of the multiple AMD PDUs. The method and device of the embodiments of the present application are advantageous in reducing unnecessary overhead.

  • Patent number: 11122067
    Abstract: Methods, non-transitory computer readable media, anomaly detection apparatuses, and network traffic management systems that generate, based on the application of one or more models and for a first flow associated with a received first set of network traffic, one or more likelihood scores and at least one flow score based on the likelihood scores. One or more of the one or more models are associated with one or more browsing patterns for a web application to which the first set of network traffic is directed. A determination is made when the flow score exceeds a threshold. A mitigation action is initiated, based on a stored policy, with respect to the first set of network traffic, when the determining indicates that the flow score exceeds the established threshold.

  • Patent number: 11122064
    Abstract: In some examples, a system identifies, for a given authentication event between a plurality of devices in a network, a context comprising a set of authentication events that are temporally related to the given authentication event. The set of authentication events occur at the devices. A classifier is applied on a collection of features associated with the set of authentication events, the collection of features comprising a number of machines or a number of users associated with the set of authentication events. The system determines, based on an output of the classifier, whether the given authentication event is an unauthorized authentication event.
