  • Patent number: 10742770
    Abstract: Techniques are described for extending a two-way active measurement protocol (TWAMP) to enable measurement of service key performance indicators (KPIs) in a software defined network (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) architecture. The TWAMP extensions enable control messaging to be handled by a TWAMP control client executed on a centralized controller, and data messaging to be handled by a TWAMP session initiator executed on a separate network device. Techniques are also described for extending TWAMP to enable measurement of any of a plurality of service KPIs for a given service supported at a TWAMP server. The service KPIs may include one or more of keepalive measurements, round trip time measurements, path delay measurements, service latency measurements, or service load measurements. The TWAMP extensions for the service KPIs may be used in both conventional network architectures and in SDN and NFV architectures.

    Abstract: A system for combining wireless sensor networks includes a first sink transmitting a request to combine (RTC) and first routing-information. First nodes propagate data and instructions in a first wireless sensor network. The first nodes broadcast the RTC when the first nodes are boundary nodes. The first routing-information are established based on first transmission paths between the first sink and the first nodes. A second sink receives the RTC and the first routing-information from the first sink. The second sink transmits second routing-information to the first sink. The second routing-information are established based on second transmission paths between the second sink and the second nodes. The second node relays the RTC to the second sink according to a flag in a packet of the RTC. The first wireless sensor network combines with the second wireless sensor network to exchange the first routing-information and the second routing-information.

  • Patent number: 10542035
    Abstract: Managing rogue devices in a network through a network backhaul. A rogue device is detected in a network and a rogue device message that includes the rogue device is sent to a plurality of switches in a backhaul of the network. The rogue device is added into a rogue monitor table. Whether the rogue device is In-Net or Out-Of-Net is determined using forwarding tables of the plurality of switches in the backhaul of the network and the rogue monitor table. Mitigation is performed using a nearest switch to the rogue device of the plurality of switches in the backhaul of the network if it is determined that the rogue device is In-Net.

  • Patent number: 10517098
    Abstract: Techniques for supporting peer-to-peer (P2P) communication in a wide area network (WAN) are disclosed. In an aspect, interference coordination between P2P devices engaged in P2P communication and WAN devices engaged in WAN communication may be performed based on a network-controlled architecture. For the network-controlled architecture, P2P devices may detect other P2P devices and/or WAN devices and may send measurements (e.g., for pathloss, interference, etc.) for the detected devices to the WAN (e.g., serving base stations). The WAN may perform resource partitioning and/or association for the P2P devices based on the measurements. Association may include selection of P2P communication or WAN communication for a given P2P device. Resource partitioning may include allocation of resources to a group of P2P devices for P2P communication.

  • Patent number: 10509663
    Abstract: A customer submits a request to a virtual computer system service to launch a virtual machine instance and to join this instance to a managed directory. The service may obtain, from the customer, a domain name and Internet Protocol addresses for the selected directory, which is then stored within a systems management server. When launched, the instance may initiate an agent, which may communicate with the systems management server to obtain the configuration information. The agent may use this configuration information to establish a communications channel with the managed directory and create a temporary set of computer credentials that may be used to verify that the customer is authorized to join the virtual machine instance to the managed directory. If the credentials are valid, the managed directory may generate a computer account within the managed directory, which may be used to join the virtual machine instance to the managed directory.
