  • Patent number: 10680899
    Abstract: A wireless network can perform a topological mapping through its gateway, which sends a multicast message over the wireless network to every node of a network. Each of the nodes on the network, on receipt of the multicast message, can transmit a one-hop multicast message containing a topological ping to its neighboring nodes. A neighboring node receiving a topological ping will store information relating to the link quality between the sender and neighboring nodes. After network traffic related to the topology discovery has quieted, the neighboring nodes sends the stored information to the gateway, without any processing by the node which sent the topological ping. All nodes may also implement a randomized delay both before sending the topological ping, and/or before sending the stored information to the gateway, to minimize the opportunity for data collision of messages relating to topological discovery.

    Abstract: A first network node of a computer network discovers a host route by leveraging a temporary host route on the control plane of the computer network. The first network node receives, from a source host, a request for a host route associated with a destination host. The first network node determines that it has not previously stored the host route associated with the destination host, and generates a temporary host route associated with the destination host. The first network node propagates the temporary host route across the control plane of the computer network, causing each respective network node to discover if the destination host is connected to the respective network node.

  • Patent number: 10666529
    Abstract: A method and a scoring node for estimating a user's Quality of Experience, QoE, when a service is delivered in a media stream to the user by means of a communication network. Quality-related parameters pertaining to the service delivery are extracted, and an individual opinion score is determined for each of a set of quality models by applying each respective quality model in the set on the quality-related parameters. An aggregated opinion score is then determined as a weighted average of the individual opinion scores. The aggregated opinion score can then be used as an estimation of the user's QoE for the service delivery, e.g. when evaluating the service and/or the communication network.

  • Patent number: 10667306
    Abstract: In an example, a method of updating Basic Service Set ID (BSSID) is provided. According to the method, a wireless bridge device determines whether a Service Set Identifier (SSID) carried in a received access packet transmitted by a first wireless access point is matched with a target SSID locally saved in the wireless bridge device. The wireless bridge device continues determining whether a BSSID carried in the access packet is identical to a locally saved target BSSID if the decision result is yes. Otherwise, the wireless bridge device determines whether the access packet carries configuration information of a second wireless access point currently associated with the wireless bridge device, and the wireless bridge device saves the BSSID carried in the access packet as the target BSSID if the access packet carries the configuration information.
