  • Patent number: 10320703
    Abstract: Various methods, systems, and processes to prevent data corruption caused by a pre-existing split brain condition in a cluster are presented. In response to determining that a node is no longer part of a sub-cluster, another node in the sub-cluster is designated as a racer node. The racer node accesses a matrix, and the matrix includes information to determine whether a majority of coordination points in a cluster are accessible by nodes in the sub-cluster. Based on the accessing, a determination is made that the information indicates that the majority of coordination points are accessible by the nodes. The information is then broadcasted.

  • Patent number: 10320675
    Abstract: A gateway router can receive an Interest that includes a location-independent name for a data collection. If the Interest does not include an Anchor Identifier, the gateway router can perform a lookup operation in a name-prefix forwarding-information base (NP-FIB) to select an Anchor Identifier for a target anchor node, and to select an interface for forwarding the Interest toward the anchor. The router can update the Interest to include the Anchor Identifier prior to forwarding the Interest via the interface. An edge or core router that receives the Interest can perform a lookup in a routing table using the Interest's Anonymous Identifier (AID) to obtain an interface toward the anchor node and a second AID that is to be used by the next-hop neighbor to process the Interest. The router may then update the Interest to replace the Interest's AID with the second AID prior to forwarding the Interest.

  • Patent number: 10278106
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media are disclosed which provide improved performance for packet switched (PS)-to-PS handovers. Embodiments provide for improved handover operations by utilizing registration refreshing techniques to reduce the time required to complete signaling and registration of a UE over a target access in connection with a handover of a communication session from a serving access to the target access. Embodiments further provide improved handover operations that eliminate the exchange of signaling information with a remote UE in connection with a handover of a communication session from a serving access to the target access. Further, handover operations are processed by a network node that is closer to the UE requesting the handover (e.g., the network node may be an Access-SBC/P-CSCF that operates between a core network and the UE).

  • Patent number: 10274329
    Abstract: An approach is provided for generating a minimum overlapping alternative path. The approach involves receiving a constraint parameter for traversing a path between a first location and a second location. The approach also involves determining a critical portion of the path that is to be traveled to satisfy the constraint parameter, and designating a remaining portion of the path that is not the critical portion as a non-critical portion. The approach further involves calculating one or more candidate minimum overlapping alternative paths for the non-critical portion of the path. The approach further involves generating the minimum overlapping alternative path between the first location and the second location by combining the critical portion of the path with a selected one of the one or more candidate minimum overlapping alternative paths that satisfies the constraint parameter.

  • Patent number: 10275319
    Abstract: This invention involves tracking and backing all the information that a user generates on its computer devices (including embedded devices) in real time. The local user server records all user actions and gestures (via various means that include TV cameras). All of this information (user actions and saved files in a computer) is then sent to a remote server via the Internet. This remote server has a virtual map of all the embedded devices on a computer that the person uses. The remote server immediately starts to interpret the user's actions (including user gestures). In one implementation, the invention stores user actions that are related to data generation (e.g. actions that called some links where data is stored, or executed some programs that generated data). In another variant the remote server generates and downloads the same files that are downloaded on the local user computer devices.
