  • Patent number: 11032073
    Abstract: A Man in the Middle (MitM) computer receives a first session identifier from a client for a first communication session between the client and a server, and monitors Transport Layer Security (TLS) communication sessions between the client and the server, where the first session identifier is one of an unknown session identifier and an invalid session identifier. In response to receiving the first session identifier from the client, the MitM computer performs one of: requesting a second session identifier from the server for a second communication session if the first session identifier is an unknown session identifier; and transmitting, to the client, an instruction to flush a session cache in the client, where flushing the session cache in the client forces the client and the server to establish a full TLS handshake in order to obtain a session key if the first session identifier is an invalid session identifier.

  • Patent number: 11026113
    Abstract: Disclosed are a measuring method, a base station, and a terminal. The method comprises: a base station transmits to a terminal a switching message of a narrow bandwidth receiving mode, thus instructing the terminal to switch to a specified narrow bandwidth to receive information; when channel state information (CSI) of a downlink channel needs to be measured, the base station schedules the terminal to switch sequentially to at least two different measuring narrow bandwidths to measure a downlink reference signal, where the width of the narrow bandwidth and that of the at least two different measuring narrow bandwidths are less than the width of a system bandwidth. The employment of embodiments of the present invention allows the terminal to flexibly switch between the narrow bandwidth and the system bandwidth, reduces power consumption of the terminal, and implements the measurement of the CSI of the downlink channel at the same time.

  • Patent number: 11026131
    Abstract: When an access node is providing a UE with carrier-aggregation service on a PCell in combination with one or more SCells and the UE engages in a voice call including uplink voice communication on the PCell, the access node will determine that there is a threshold high level of IMD on the uplink resulting from concurrent downlink transmissions, and the access node will responsively swap the UE's PCell with one of the UE's one or more SCells. In a representative implementation, the decision to swap these carriers in the UE's connection could be based on a further determination that the level of IMD on the uplink of the SCell is not threshold high.

  • Patent number: 11017267
    Abstract: According to exemplary methods of training a convolutional neural network, input images are received into a computerized device having an image processor. The image processor evaluates the input images using first convolutional layers. The number of first convolutional layers is based on a first size for the input images. Each layer of the first convolutional layers receives layer input signals comprising features of the input images and generates layer output signals that include signals from the input images and ones of the layer output signals from previous layers within the first convolutional layers. Responsive to an input image being a second size larger than the first size, additional convolutional layers are added to the convolutional neural network. The number of additional convolutional layers is based on the second size in relation to the first size. The additional convolutional layers are initialized using weights from the first convolutional layers.

  • Patent number: 11019479
    Abstract: In order to establish a mesh network, an electronic device may iteratively identify one or more mesh-network nodes and may determine associated duty-cycle ratios based on communication with the one or more mesh-network nodes. In particular, the electronic device may select candidate mesh-network nodes based on estimated throughput metrics of their communication with a root device in the mesh network. Then, for each of the candidate mesh-network nodes, the electronic device may associate with a given candidate mesh-network node, and may measure the throughput of the given candidate mesh-network node during a time interval by communicating packets. Based on comparisons of the measured throughputs, the electronic device may identify the one or more mesh-network nodes in the candidate mesh-network nodes and may determine the associated duty-cycle ratios. Subsequently, the electronic device communicates information with the root device via the one or more mesh-network nodes based on the duty-cycle ratios.
