  • Patent number: 10219184
    Abstract: A method in a network node for handling a traffic flow of a User Equipment, UE. The network node creates a unique Network Address Translated, NAT:ed, Internet Protocol, IP, address mapping to an IP address of the UE. The NAT:ed IP address includes a local IP address prefix assigned to a related first local service cloud. The NAT:ed IP address is usable for the traffic flow both before and after a handover of the UE from the first local service cloud to a neighboring second local service cloud. The NAT:ed IP address is unique at least in all local service clouds neighboring to the first local service cloud, including the second local service cloud. The network node assigns the NAT:ed IP address to the UE for local break out of the traffic flow of the application session to the first local service cloud.

  • Patent number: 9973404
    Abstract: Systems and methods are contemplated for reconfiguration of one or more MAC instances while the WTRU is operating using dual- or multi-MAC instance connectivity. For example, upon reception of RRC reconfiguration information that modifies one or more secondary MAC instances, the WTRU may transmit a reconfiguration complete message to a Macro eNB (MeNB) and may synchronize to small-cell or secondary eNB (SeNB), for example if triggered by one or more of an RRC flag, a physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) order (MeNB/SeNB), MAC activation information, etc. For example, the WTRU may synchronize to the SeNB for specific type(s) of RRC reconfigurations, but not other type(s) of RRC reconfigurations. Although examples may be described in terms of dual connectivity, the WTRU may establish connectivity and perform mobility procedures with more than two radio access network (RAN) nodes (e.g., eNBs), and the embodiments described may be equally applicable to those scenarios.

  • Patent number: 9942229
    Abstract: A limited input device, such as a camera, is authenticated based on a request received from an authenticated application. The application can request an application server to provide the application with a one-time authorization code. The request includes the device identifier associated with the camera. The server stores an association between the one-time authorization code and the device identifier of the camera, and provides the application with the one-time authorization code. The application provides the camera with the one-time authorization code. The camera transmits a request for an access token to the server, the request for the access token including the one-time authorization code and the device identifier associated with the camera. The server verifies the device identifier associated with the camera with that associated with the one-time authorization code, and upon a positive verification authenticates the camera by providing the camera with the access token.

A respective index entry corresponds to a respective term in one or more messages, and has a plurality of index components; a respective index component identifies a message associated with the respective term. The method further includes, responsive to receiving a first message; updating the index by: associating the first message with a conversation having one or more other messages; identifying text in the first message as quoted text based on text that occurs in one or more of the other messages; and updating, in the index, first-message index components that each includes an identifier of the first message, which includes original text index components and quoted text index components. The quoted text index components include information indicating that the corresponding terms are terms in the quoted text of the first message.

  • Patent number: 9128727
    Abstract: A network toolset enables developers to automatically generate a C header file and underlying signal software, as well as automatically generate a managed code assembly from a network description. The managed code assembly can be generated in a binary format and may include sufficient metadata to support extended functionalities for a network. The managed code assembly can be relatively easily integrated with an existing image (e.g., machine code for a network device) without any compilation required. A software development kit can also be generated to help programmers manage the generated assemblies.

  • Patent number: 8942264
    Abstract: A multiplexer is capable of multiplexing at least two signals selected from the first signal, the second signal and the null code signal. In a first mode, the multiplexer multiplexes the first signal and the null code signal consistent with a predetermined time sequence for expression of the null code in first precursor signal In a second mode, the multiplexer multiplexes the first signal and the second signal to provide a second precursor signal. A correlator can correlate the digital received composite signal to the locally generated reference signal to decode at least a first portion of the received composite signal or the entire received composite signal, depending upon the mode (e.g., operation in the first or second mode).

    Abstract: A first signal generator is arranged to generate a first signal. A ranging code generator is arranged for generating a ranging code. A mixer is capable of accepting the ranging code and the first signal and outputting a locally generated reference signal. After down-conversion and digitization of the received composite signal, the code correlator can correlate the digital received composite signal to the locally generated reference signal to decode at least a first portion of the received composite signal, while leaving a second portion of the received composite signal undecoded. A tracking loop signal processor can process one or more digital signals, of the locally generated reference signal with respect to the digital received composite signal to maximize correlation of the received composite signal to the locally generated reference signal.
