  • Patent number: 10257760
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are provided for inter-RAT bearer change for the 3GPP network. In one novel aspect, a bearer termination procedure is performed upon detecting one or more triggering events for the inter-RAT bearer modification. In one embodiment, the UE established the 4G EPS bearer. The UE successfully performs a bearer change from 4G to 3G. Subsequently, the UE detects missing mandatory parameters during inter-RAT bearer change from 3G to 2G in an idle state. The UE performs bearer termination by releasing the PDP context. In one embodiment, the PDP context is locally released. In other embodiments, the UE explicitly releases bearer using the PDP context deactivation procedure. The locally released procedure can be triggered by the UE, or by the network, or by both the UE and the network. The explicitly PDP context release procedure can be triggered by the UE, or by the network, or by both the UE and the network.

  • Patent number: 10257083
    Abstract: Techniques whereby a LAN-side border router observes all packets of an application flow from both directions so that the application recognition performed on the LAN-side border router functions properly. A border router may implement flags in a flow cache to indicate whether the border router is the LAN-side border router and/or a WAN-side border router for an application flow. As packets are received at a border router at either the LAN interface or WAN interface, the flags associated with packet's application flows are examined to determine if the border router is the LAN-side border router for the application flow. If so, then application recognition and routing control may be performed. If not, the packet may be redirected to another border router that may be the LAN-side border router or the WAN-side border router for the application flow to insure that border router observes the packet.

  • Patent number: 10057860
    Abstract: A link-budget-limited wireless communication device (UE) may implement improved radio link monitoring procedures for enhancing the link-budget of the UE. The UE may monitor the radio link and may determine whether the radio link can support a lowest acceptable link quality according to a hysteresis-based comparison that uses threshold values to determine error rates associated with a physical control channel. The UE may also identify itself to the network as a link-budget-limited device, and the network may enable special link-budget enhancing features for the UE, including boosting the power of the resource elements (REs) carrying physical channel signaling/data to the UE. The UE may detect the presence of power boost and may estimate/determine the power boost level.

  • Patent number: 10038643
    Abstract: The present technology pertains to unilaterally interleaving individual data packets of long bursts of multi-packet messages in various sequence patterns to be sent to one or more receivers over a network. Before determining a pattern, the sending device attempts to reduce the transmission length of the long bursts of the data packets into multiple chunks. Subsequently, the sending device generates a sequence pattern of the individual data packets and consecutively transmits these packets to their respective receivers. The determined sequence pattern may be based upon outbound limits at the sender, inbound limits at the one or more receivers, and various transmission priorities. Moreover, the sender may limit the data flow of any message transmission. The present technology does not require feedback from the network's components or from the network itself to micro flow control the individual data packets.

  • Patent number: 10021202
    Abstract: Configurations for providing a pushed based real-time analytics system are disclosed. The system incorporates a network and distributed database configured to stream real-time analytics data through multiple tiers. The real-time analytics data is routed/pushed through the system without requiring an additional requests from a front-end client. For instance, after the front-end client initiates a query with the real-time analytics system, a pipeline is opened to the front-end client and web site traffic data is pushed without requiring polling or other explicit requests from the front-end client. As incoming web site tracking data communications are received, the incoming web site tracking data communications are automatically routed and pushed through different tiers of the system. Real-time web site tracking data is automatically presented to the front-end client without requiring constant refreshing (which introduces latency) of a web browser or similar client application.
