    Abstract: An automation system can generate a unique address for a newly connected device to optimize automated capabilities of the system. An automation system can have a first device connected to a host via a network where the first device has a processor. Connection of a second device to the host as part of the automation system prompts factory information from the second device to be imported with the processor r. A unique address is then generated for the second device with an address module of the processor based on the factory information. A first communication may be sent from the host to the second device using the unique address to allow at least one automated activity to be conducted with the second device in response to the first communication.

  • Patent number: 10325081
    Abstract: Method, media, and system for authentication of a claimant as a claimed identity. Embodiments break the authentication process into two steps. In the first step, a registrant establishes an identity profile by presenting identity documents and authentication points that can later be used to verify that they are the person who established the identity profile. Subsequently, when a claimant claims the identity in the identity profile, an identity score and an authentication score can be calculated based on the identity profile and the information provided by the claimant. The authentication score measures how likely it is that the claimant is the same person who established the identity profile. The identity score measures how likely it is that the registrant is who they are claiming to be. The identity score and the authentication score can then be combined to determine the likelihood that the claimant actually corresponds to the claimed identity.

    Abstract: This disclosure relates to communicating on a wireless channel in the presence of an interference source. A receiver accesses the channel to perform a sequence of energy detections. The interference source is modelled as cyclically transitioning into and out of an inactive state and as cyclically transitioning, when out of the inactive state, between a first active state, in which the interference source is active and creating interference on the channel, and a second active state, in which the interference source is active but creating a substantially lower level of interference on the channel. Based on the sequence of energy detections, large and small time scale metrics are determined. Transmission of data by a transmitter is in dependence on the estimated metrics.

    Abstract: Resources for reference signalling on at least one component carrier of a plurality of aggregated component carriers can be determined by a station. Information indicative the at least one component carrier and the associated resources is then communicated to another station for configuration of the other station. A trigger is then sent for reference signalling, and in response to the trigger, at least one reference signal is sent from the other station using the indicated at least one component carrier and resources.

  • Patent number: 10313723
    Abstract: The invention provides a streaming client with a streaming presentation of an event, with said presentation being obtained by dynamically switching between a plurality of media streams which represent different recordings of the event. For that purpose, source data is obtained from a plurality of stream sources. The source data is constituted by content data and/or metadata of concurrent portions of the plurality of media streams. By applying a quality assessment function to the source data, a quality score is assigned to each one of the concurrent portions. This allows selection data to be generated which enables the streaming client to access a selected one of the concurrent portions of a respective media stream. For example, a segment may be selected which provides a highest quality score. By doing so, it is therefore not required anymore for a consumer to manually switch between different media streams.

  • Patent number: 10314071
    Abstract: A downlink Coordinated Multipoint (CoMP) scheduling algorithm used in a cellular communications network is disclosed. In some embodiments, a method of operation of a downlink scheduler (42, 46) implementing the disclosed algorithm for a generic cell (24, 30) is provided. The cell downlink scheduler (42, 46) is used in the cellular communications network (22) to enable downlink CoMP scheduling within a cell cluster (36) including the cell (24, 30) and one or more other cells (24, 30). According to at least some embodiments, the distributed downlink CoMP scheduling for the cell cluster (36) effectively reduces inter-cell co-channel interference.

  • Patent number: 10314062
    Abstract: A method, system and device are provided for avoiding in-device coexistence interference between different radio technologies deployed in adjacent bands on the same device by allocating a non-interfering downlink signaling channel for downlink reception of interference avoidance instructions at the UE device. In operation, a user equipment device detects IDC interference and sends an IDC indication message to the radio network to get an appropriate solution, but instead of waiting at the current frequency to receive the IDC response from the radio network, the user equipment device moves to a non-interfering downlink signaling channel for downlink reception of interference avoidance instructions.

  • Patent number: 10314057
    Abstract: Disclosed are methods and systems for managing allocation of air interface resources to a relay user equipment device (relay-UE) that provides wireless backhaul connectivity for a relay base station (relay-BS). In particular, a base station may serve the relay-UE and may make a determination that the relay-UE is positioned within an indoor environment rather than within an outdoor environment. While serving the relay-UE, the base station may manage allocation of air interface resources to the relay-UE and may do so based at least on the determination that the relay-UE is positioned within an indoor environment rather than within an outdoor environment.

  • Patent number: 10313937
    Abstract: A method and a first radio network node (110) for managing input parameters to a set of models for prediction of a quality of service of a user equipment (120) are disclosed. The first radio network node (110) operates the set of models for prediction of the quality of service. The quality of service relates to when the user equipment (120) is served by a second radio network node (130) after a handover from the first radio network node (110) to the second radio network node (130). The first radio network node (110) configures (205) the second radio network node (130) to report the input parameters at least once before the handover. The input parameters are usable by the first radio network node (110) when predicting, by use of the set of models, the quality of service. A corresponding computer program and a carrier therefor are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10313891
    Abstract: Embodiments assign shared spectrum resources to access points. Embodiments group the access points into coexistence groups of access points, and generate a vertex graph including vertices that each represent one of the coexistence groups, where an edge connecting a pair of vertices in the vertex graph represents an overlap between coverage contours of a pair of coexistence groups represented by the pair of vertices, and the edge is assigned a weight that is proportional to the overlap as compared to other overlaps between coverage contours of other pairs of coexistence groups. Embodiments generate at least one vertex-colored graph by assigning a color to each vertex in the vertex graph, group the coexistence groups into groups of coexistence groups based on their corresponding assigned colors in the at least one vertex-colored graph, and map shared spectrum transmit frequencies to the groups of coexistence groups.

  • Patent number: 10314053
    Abstract: A base station may manage transmissions between the base station and wireless communication devices (WCDs), where the base station serves the WCDs over an air interface, and where the base station is configured to engage in downlink transmission using a particular quantity of transmit antennas. In one example, the base station determines that each of at least one WCD currently being served by the base station is configured to support a particular modulation scheme. And in responsive to the determining, the base station reduces the quantity of transmit antennas and engages in the downlink transmission using the reduced quantity of transmit antennas.
