  • Patent number: 10548035
    Abstract: Techniques described herein relate to performing wireless diagnostic analyses including execution and evaluations of interactive content resources executed by execution devices on and/or for separate content receiver devices. A multi-phrase diagnostic session may proceed with an execution of an initial set of diagnostic modules on an execution device, during which interactive content is transmitted/received from a connected receiver device. The results of the diagnostic modules may be evaluated in real-time and transmitted to a diagnostic analyzer server to select additional diagnostic modules for execution during the diagnostic session. The diagnostic analyzer server may select the additional diagnostic modules based on based on response data received via the content execution device to the interactive content of the previously executed diagnostic modules, and/or data received from additional data sources related to the content receiver.

  • Patent number: 10548057
    Abstract: A radio device configures a radio connection between the radio device and a cellular network. The radio connection is registered for a cell area comprising at least a first cell and a second cell of the cellular network. Before a decision of the radio device to perform a change from the first cell to the second cell, the radio device determines a configuration which enables performing allocation of radio resources to the radio device via a control channel of the second cell. After the change of the radio device from the first cell to the second cell, the radio device resumes transmission on the radio connection by requesting allocation of radio resources of second cell based on the determined configuration.

    Abstract: Particular embodiments provide a system for managing a virtualization environment, the system comprising a plurality of host machines, one or more virtual disks comprising a plurality of storage devices, and a virtualized file server (VFS) comprising a plurality of file server virtual machines (FSVMs), wherein each of the FSVMs is running on one of the host machines and conducts I/O transactions with the one or more virtual disks, and the host machines form a cluster. A health monitoring service may monitor the FSVMs to determine whether any of the FSVMs has failed or is having problems. If the health monitoring service detects a failure of one of the FSVMs on a first one of the host machines, for each resource lock associated with the first FSVM, the health monitoring service may reassign the resource lock to another one of the FSVMs.

  • Patent number: 10542471
    Abstract: A method and system to help manage resources in a fallback scenario is disclosed. A first network may be configured to serve user equipment devices (UEs) according to a first protocol and a second network may be configured to serve UEs according to a second protocol. The method may involve the first network serving a UE, where serving the UE includes allocating at least one resource to the UE. The method may also involve, after the UE has transitioned from being served by the first network to being served by the second network for a circuit-switched-fallback call, (i) if the UE completes call setup, the first network releasing the resources, but (ii) if the UE does not complete call setup, the first network using the allocated resources to serve the UE after the UE transitions back to being served by the first network.

  • Patent number: 10542016
    Abstract: Subnet information and location information is received from a database by a smart data streaming engine (SDS). A particular subnet of the subnet information is associated with a particular location of the location information by a globally unique location ID value. Log event data received in the SDS is normalized as normalized log event data. The normalized log event data is enriched with subnet and location information as enriched log event data and written into a log event persistence in the database. A subnet ID value retrieved from an enriched log event of the enriched log event data is used by an enterprise threat detection (ETD) system to determine a location associated with the enriched log event using a location ID value associated with the subnet ID.
