  • Patent number: 9948429
    Abstract: A method for operating a distributed base station includes performing Hybrid Automatic Repeat Request (HARQ) processing. The distributed base station comprises a centralized processing entity and distributed remote radio access points, which are coupled to the centralized processing entity via a backhaul connection. The HARQ processing is performed locally by the remote radio access points, by performing an assessment a quality of received data and/or current radio conditions. Based on the assessment, it is decided locally on a necessity of re-transmissions without decoding the received data at the remote radio access points.

  • Patent number: 9949146
    Abstract: A wireless communication network controls data services that are delivered over a wireless access point. The wireless access point broadcasts service identifiers for the data services to user communication devices. The user communication devices and the wireless access point exchange the user data for the data services. The wireless access point and a network gateway exchange the user data for the data services. The network gateway processes the user data to determine if one of the data services falls below a Quality-of-Service (QoS) threshold. If one of the data services falls below its QoS threshold, then the network gateway transfers an instruction to stop wirelessly broadcasting the service identifier for the data service. The wireless access point receives the instruction and stops its wireless broadcast of the service identifier for the data service.

    Abstract: A spoofed management frame is sent to an unauthorized access point (AP) on behalf of a station from an authorized AP, using a media access control (MAC) address of the station. The spoofed frame triggers a security association (SA) query from an unauthorized AP to reestablish valid communications. An acknowledgment (ACK) frame sent from the client to the unauthorized AP responsive to the SA query request is detected by the AP. A probe response is sent to the client. The probe response includes a channel switching element. The channel switching prevents the client from completing the SA process before a time out.

  • Patent number: 9942099
    Abstract: Techniques for mapping a topology of a chain of network service functions on a computer network are described. A request packet is sent to an ingress service function on the network. The request packet is encapsulated with a network service header, which identifies the packet as an OAM packet, and an OAM payload. Where the packet is received by a service function that is not an egress service function, the request packet is forwarded to the next service function hop in the chain. Where the packet is an egress service function, the request packet is returned to the discovery source. A service path is constructed based on the metadata in the OAM payload describing the identified the service functions. This technique can be applied to multiple connected chains to provide a complete mapping of the network topography.

  • Patent number: 9936456
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and computer readable media can be operable to facilitate power consumption management of a station by enabling and disabling wireless chains. A station may determine minimal QoS requirements for supporting a WLAN service at the station. The station may determine and utilize a minimal number of WLAN chains needed to support the WLAN service while meeting the minimal QoS requirements. In embodiments, an internal temperature of the station may be monitored, and when the internal temperature of the station exceeds a temperature threshold, one or more WLAN chains of the station may be disabled to reduce power consumption by the station.
