  • Patent number: 11032762
    Abstract: A bridge device spoofs a wireless router on behalf of an audio/video recording and communication device (A/V device) to keep a connection with the router active. This prevents the router from dropping the connection with the A/V device. Without the spoofing, the A/V device would have to reestablish a connection which may delay data transmission from the A/V device. The bridge device spoofs the A/V device by sending keepalive messages, which consumes significant power. The A/V device thereby consumes less power because the A/V device does not send keepalive messages while being spoofed by the bridge device. The A/V device and the bridge device communicate over a separate, lower power communication channel, so that the bridge can, for example, tell the A/V device when to wake up and resume communication with the router.

  • Patent number: 11032237
    Abstract: A communication device of a first wireless network determines that a first value of a first basic service set (BSS) color identifier is the same as a value of a second BSS color identifier corresponding to a neighboring second wireless network. In response, the communication device determines a second value of the first BSS color identifier. The communication device transmits one or more packets that each include i) an indication that the first BSS color identifier is changing, ii) the second value of the first BSS color identifier, and iii) a respective integer number of remaining beacon intervals corresponding to a start time when the second value of the first BSS color identifier will supersede the first value of the first BSS color identifier. Based on the start time, the communication device begins to use the second value of the first BSS color identifier with communications in the first wireless network.

  • Patent number: 11012929
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described that provide for identification, on a per-PLMN basis of a type of core network associated with each PLMN in a list of networks associated with a base station. A user equipment (UE) may receive the list of networks and, based at least in part on the type(s) of core network accessible via each PLMN and a capability of the UE, initiate a connection establishment with a PLMN and associated core network. In some cases, UEs that are not capable of connections with a first type of core network (e.g., a 5G core network) may be restricted from camping on a cell or PLMN that may provide only connections with the first type of core network (e.g., a 4G core network).
