  • Patent number: 11182711
    Abstract: A method to associate a set of first entities to a set of second entities, e.g., computing jobs to processors, agent teams to workspace resources within a physical location, or the like. The NG is seeded using a force directed graph (FDG), whose “seed” particles represents the agents and their relative interconnectedness. The FDG is first brought into an equilibrium state to define a solution space. A relative coordinate system of the FDG solution space is then translated to a number of vertices represented in the NG, and then an initial seeding of the seed particles in the NG (based on their relative positions in the FDG solution space) is carried out. A search is then performed. During the search, each seed vertex releases its embedded agents to adjacent vertices to enable the agents to search for and achieve a required count.

  • Patent number: 11178240
    Abstract: A user device containing sensors is delivered customized services without utilizing private user data or while only using it in highly constrained ways. This is accomplished by sending one or more queries to the user device. Each query requests a binary response and each query inquires whether or not the user device has obtained one or more specified parameter values, or range of parameter values, from one or more sensors incorporated in or in communication with the user device. For each query a binary response is received, which indicates that the user device has or has not obtained the one or more specified parameter values, or the range of parameter values, about which the respective query is inquiring.

  • Patent number: 10986692
    Abstract: Embodiments of an Evolved Node-B (eNB) and methods for transition between idle and connected modes are disclosed herein. The eNB may receive uplink data packets from a User Equipment (UE) using a lightweight Radio Resource Control (RRC) connection between the eNB and the UE. The eNB may transmit an RRC connection release message to the UE to indicate a transition of the UE to an RRC idle mode for the RRC connection. The RRC connection release message may include an indicator of whether the UE is to store context information for the RRC connection. The eNB may further receive additional uplink data packets according to the stored context information using a lightweight RRC connection.

  • Patent number: 10986559
    Abstract: Systems and methods for reducing the amount of messages transmitted in large-scale distributed mesh networks are disclosed. Network components include transceivers and memory storing instructions which, when executed by a processing unit, reduce transmissions made by the transceiver within the network. The instructions executed by processing unit could (1) create an expiration parameter to limit the number of times a signal is retransmitted, (2) form groups of network components from which one or a few of the group network components are designated to respond on behalf of the group, (3) keep advertising transmissions dormant by default until called upon, (4) employ a time delay parameter for a time interval in which no transmission may be made, and (5) include message IDs in control signals that are transmitted.

  • Patent number: 10942930
    Abstract: A system and method for graph-based publication/subscription are provided. A graph comprising nodes and edges is created, each node representative of a point of interest in an information domain, each edge linking a first node and a second node and representative of a relationship between a first and a second point of interest. A request to publish content on at least one selected node and/or at least one selected edge is received. A request to subscribe to a subset of nodes and/or a subset of edges is received from a subscriber. The subscription request is correlated with the publication request to determine whether the subset of nodes comprises the selected node and whether the subset of edges comprises the selected edge. The content is notified to the subscriber if the subset of nodes comprises the selected node and the subset of edges comprises the selected edge.

  • Patent number: 10917338
    Abstract: A system and method for building a data structure for determining if multiple routing or forwarding tables yield the same or different forwarding behaviors. VeriTable uses a single tree/trie traversal to quickly check if multiple forwarding tables are forwarding equivalent, yield routing loops, or black holes. VeriTable also uses the Longest Prefix Matching rule for lookups, e.g., checking if route updates in control plane are consistent with the ones in forwarding plane. VeriTable can be applied to network-wide abnormality diagnosis of network problems, such as scalable and efficient forwarding loop detection and avoidance in the data plane of a network. In addition, VeriTable can be extended to handle incremental updates applied to the forwarding tables in a network.
