  • Patent number: 10374946
    Abstract: A centralized network management system includes a wireless controller system and a plurality of access points that are coupled together through a network. Each of the plurality of access points is configured to receive wireless traffic from user devices and determine whether flow session rules are available for the wireless traffic. If so, wireless traffic received by an access point that is part of a flow session is modified by that access point according to at least one flow session rule that was received from the wireless controller system and that is associated with the flow session to which that wireless traffic belongs. That modified wireless traffic is translated to modified wired traffic by the access point, and the access point then perform an action on the modified wired traffic according to the at least one flow session rule associated with the flow session.

  • Patent number: 10362586
    Abstract: A method for channel reservation and communication using carrier sense multiple access (CSMA) with directional antennas in a wireless network. A source station (STA) may transmit a directional request to send (RTS) frame to a destination station before a data transmission. Upon receipt of the RTS frame, the destination STA may transmit a transmit network allocation vector (TNAV) frame instructing receiving stations not to perform transmissions toward the destination STA for a predefined period of time, which may include a channel quality measurement (CQM) period. The destination STA may transmit a directional clear-to-send (CTS) frame when channel quality estimated during the CQM meets a criterion. The source STA may then transmit a directional data transmission to the destination STA upon receipt of the CTS frame.

  • Patent number: 10355944
    Abstract: Systems and techniques are described for performing minimally invasive monitoring of path quality in a network. Specifically, path quality requests and measurements can be piggy-backed on the data traffic that is flowing through a secure connection between two network nodes. For example, path quality requests and measurements can be inserted into the TFC padding field of IP/ESP packets that are being communicated between two IPsec devices. The disclosed embodiments ensure that the number/frequency of measurements increases/decreases naturally in proportion to the amount of traffic flowing, and that the measurement data does not get differential treatment in the network as they are intrinsically bound to the data packets being monitored.

    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for discovering a home agent serving a mobile node upon the mobile node changing its mobility management scheme in a packet-switched network and the implementation of such method in a mobile node or home agent. In order to propose a home agent discover scheme that maintains session continuity in a seamless manner upon a mobile node changing its mobility management scheme, a mobile node comprises information on its location prior to changing the mobility management scheme to one of the first signaling messages transmitted upon changing the mobility management scheme (home agent discovery message). The receiving node uses this information to identify the home agent serving the mobile node or to provide a hint to the home agent where the mobile node is registered in a response message to the mobile node.

  • Patent number: 9916319
    Abstract: Compression of data for database movement, includes: selecting a first group of categorical columns for compression; selecting a next group of categorical columns from remaining columns for compression; repeating the selecting of the next group until a predetermined compression threshold is met; creating first compression files comprising compressed representations of the columns in the first group; creating next compression files comprising compressed representations of the columns in each of the next groups; storing initial row sort order, group identity, and column positions corresponding to each of the next groups; and storing any columns not selected for compression in an uncompressed file in the original row sort order. Decompression of the data includes: rebuilding categorical columns in each group of compression files using group identity and column positions corresponding to the group; and sorting rows comprising the rebuilt categorical columns to the initial row sort order.

  • Patent number: 9900260
    Abstract: A bridging circuit and method of operation thereof, which couples first and second electronic circuits of a data processing system. The first electronic circuit generates signals corresponding to digits of a flow control unit (flit) of a first flow control protocol and where the second electronic circuit is responsive to signals corresponding to flits of a second flow control protocol. When first flits are destined for the same target buffer, they are combined to provide a second flit consistent with the second flow control protocol and transmitting the second flit to the second electronic circuit. The second flit includes data and metadata fields copied from the first flits, a common field common to each of the first flits, a merged field containing a merger of fields from the first flits and a validity field indicating which portions of the second flit contain valid data.

  • Patent number: 9887926
    Abstract: A data signal is transmitted in a wireless communication system from a primary station to a secondary station. The data signal comprising a medium access control header (MAC-hs header) and a protocol data unit associated with the medium access control header. The medium access control header comprising a set at least one field (e.g. TSN, SEG, LI, FMT, LCid), wherein a size allocated to at least one field of the set is determined based on a length of the protocol data unit. For example, the size allocated to a segmentation indication field (SEG) determined for a protocol data unit of a first length is less than the size determined for a protocol data unit of a second length, the second length being higher than the first length, the segmentation indication depending on a number of segments that the protocol data unit is subdivided into.

  • Patent number: 9819604
    Abstract: Systems and methods for multiplexing audio/video data and generating transport streams for WiFi network with reduced latency for real time playback at a remote device. A virtual presentation clock reference (PCR) representing a scheduled transmission time of a transport stream packet at a transport stream multiplexer is calculated based on the network transmission rate and generation of the data packets. The virtual PCR is compared with the corresponding system PCR to derive a time difference. Based on the time difference, the transport stream multiplexer is configured to adaptively drop packets or throttle packet generation so as to synchronize the playback of audio/video data on a sink device with the generation of interleaved audio/video packets.
