  • Patent number: 11392374
    Abstract: A configuration package receives user-generated input that configures a decision service to generate decision data. The configuration package includes artifacts and the user-generated input selects the artifacts from an artifact library in a configuration database. A configured decision service is generated, where the generating includes receiving, by a decision service factory, the configuration package. Also, the decision service factory receives a decision template including configurable decision elements and non-configurable decision elements. Further, the decision service factory receives a user configuration specifying a parameter in the corresponding artifact. The artifact from the configuration package, the user configuration and the decision template are combined to generate the configured decision service. The configured decision service receives, from a client computer, input for each of the configurable decision elements.

  • Patent number: 11297104
    Abstract: A Method and apparatus for resilient Decoy Routing without conspiring Autonomous Systems by instead using a DHT routing table is described. In one embodiment of the present invention, there would exist a set of Decoy Routing Nodes which would be connected via a DHT's routing table. This would enable decoy routing nodes to not depend on a predefined list. Traditionally, Decoy Routing depends upon either a pre-configured list of computer systems to connect to or is wholly dependent upon BGP to happen to route to friendly Autonomous Systems that understand the true intent of the packet being routed. This method and apparatus solves these problems by providing a means to use a dynamic routing table, provided by a DHT to ensure that a packet can be delivered to computer systems that understand how to do decoy routing. This approach further ensures that the routing table being used is one that is kept up to date automatically as a function of the DHT providing the routing table.

A guest operating system can be instantiated in a cloud-based host environment to support a set of virtual machines. The operating system can be configured with resources in the kernel to detect and manage the identity of the cloud in which the operating system is installed, as well as to interrogate potentially new target host clouds to determine the configuration settings required to move or copy the guest operating system to that target. The resulting mobility of the guest operating system affords the ability to be self-moving, and an administrator or other user can simply specify a desired target cloud to host the operating system without a need to manually configure APIs or other resources.

  • Patent number: 10601990
    Abstract: This document discusses, among other things, limiting contact to a networked contact center that is a host to multiple tenants. In an example embodiment, a communication is received by a networked contact center. In determining whether to allow the communication to reach contact center resources, a contact rate value may be examined. The contact rate value may represent an allowable quantity of contact within a time interval. For some example embodiments, a determination of whether the network contact center is to accept or reject the communication is made based on the contact rate value.

    Abstract: Dictionary encoding in a table of a database system is initiated using a single page chain. The database system includes a plurality of processor cores and each page chain includes a plurality of chained pages. Thereafter, n additional page chains are generated for use by the dictionary encoding when the count of pages used by the dictionary encoding reaches a pre-determined limit. Generation of additional page chains is later ceased once the number of additional page chains n is equivalent to a number of available processor cores. Related apparatus, systems, techniques and articles are also described.

  • Patent number: 10470236
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices are described for communicating data from multiple data terminals to an aggregator terminal over a communication link having changing link conditions. In some embodiments, source data is received at multiple data terminals, each in communication with an aggregator terminal over a communication link. For example, during a live newscast, one mobile camera may receive live video of an event from a first position while another mobile camera receives live video of the event from a second position. For various reasons (e.g., as the cameras move) each communication link may experience independently changing link conditions. Each data terminal encodes the source data (or store source data for later encoding) as a function of its respective link conditions, and transmits encoded source data over its respective communication link to the aggregator terminal.

  • Patent number: 10470103
    Abstract: A system and method for authentication of a communication device is disclosed. A system that incorporates teachings of the present disclosure may include, for example, an authentication system can have a controller element that receives from a communication device by way of a packet-switched network an authentication request comprising a first identification (ID) of a virtual gateway and a second ID of the communication device. The virtual gateway and at least one network element of the packet-switched network can be provisioned to have a physical association with each other such that other network elements of the packet-switched network deny services to the virtual gateway when the virtual gateway attempts to operate outside of said physical association. From said physical association and the aforementioned IDs the controller element can authenticate the communication device. Additional embodiments are disclosed.

  • Patent number: RE48754
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for operating a communication system comprising three or more communication transceivers. In illustrative embodiments, multiple unique start-of-packet delimiters are maintained. A data packet to be transmitted is constructed using a specified one of the plurality of start-of-packet delimiters to demarcate the start of said data packet. The chosen start-of-packet delimiter reflects one or more transceivers that are intended recipients of said data packet. When a data packet is received by a transceiver, the start-of-packet delimiter of the received data packet is compared to one or more valid start-of-packet delimiters for the receiving transceiver. If the start-of-packet delimiter of the received data packet matches a valid start-of-packet delimiter for the receiving transceiver, the data packet is accepted, otherwise it is rejected.
