  • Patent number: 11302079
    Abstract: Methods generate a dynamic real-world environment with at least one interactive ARBit. Environment information captured from a real-world environment is received from a mobile computing device. The environment information is processed to determine identified features corresponding to the real-world environment and the dynamic real-world environment is generated based upon the identified features. An ARBit database is searched for ARBits that match the identified features and the matched ARBits are added to an ARBit collection. The dynamic real-world environment and the ARBit collection are sent to the mobile device. A user of the mobile device interacts with the dynamic real-world environment and at least one displayed ARBit of the ARBit collection.

  • Patent number: 11303560
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally discloses a path selection capability configured to support intelligent path selection within the context of a hybrid-access communication network including a hybrid-access gateway (HAG) and a hybrid-access customer premises equipment (HCPE) in communication based on a multipath communication capability. The path selection capability is configured to support HCPE-based intelligent path selection for downlink traffic being provided from the HAG to the HCPE for delivery to CPEs supported by the HCPE. The path selection capability is configured to support HCPE-based intelligent path selection based on flow identification information signaled from the HAG to the HCPE based on determination of the flow identification information of the downlink traffic by the HAG. The HCPE-based intelligent path selection enables the HCPE to control the path(s) (e.g., multipath subflow(s) of a multipath connection) over which the downlink traffic is sent from the HAG to the HCPE.

  • Patent number: 11297560
    Abstract: A communication technique for establishing communication among an access point, an electronic device, and a radio node in a cellular-telephone network is described. In this communication technique, the electronic device is pre-provisioned by the radio node with an identifier of the cellular-telephone network. Moreover, the access point may advertise support for one or more LWA protocols in beacons. In response to a query from the electronic device, the access point may provide identifiers of the one or more cellular-telephone networks supported by the access point. If one of these identifiers matches the identifier, the electronic device may associate with the access point. Then, the access point may receive LWA traffic from the radio node and may forward the LWA traffic to the electronic device.

    Abstract: A technique by which it is possible to prevent a user inputting mistake from occurring when writing, from a communication apparatus (communication terminal) to a wireless communication tag (NFC tag), connection information for connecting to a printing apparatus (image forming apparatus) is provided. The image forming apparatus converts connection information for connecting to the image forming apparatus by a WLAN scheme into a corresponding image pattern, and displays the image pattern on a display unit. A communication terminal photographs the image pattern displayed on the display unit by a camera. The communication terminal restores the corresponding connection information from the image pattern photographed by the camera, and generates NDEF data based on the restored connection information.
