As a data collecting point acquires the data packet measurement information measured by at least one target logical port to the traffic stream, and uniformly transmits the data packet measurement information to the measurement control point, when multiple target logical ports respectively perform measurement to acquire respective data packet measurement information, the measurement control point uniformly determines condition of packet loss of the traffic stream.

  • Patent number: 9986019
    Abstract: An intermediating network is adapted to intermediate between an originating network and a servicing network. A first set of communications addresses in the originating network that can be used to originate communications to the servicing network are identified. A second set of communications addresses in the servicing network that can be used to service communications originating in the originating network are identified. The first set of communications addresses and the second set of communications addresses are analyzed. Based on the analyzing, incompatibilities between the first set of communications addresses and the second set of communications addresses that would prevent a communication from one of the first set of communications addresses from reaching the second set of communications addresses are determined.

  • Patent number: 9935869
    Abstract: A device may determine that a route is inactive. Information identifying the route may be stored in a forwarding plane portion of a forwarding table and a control plane portion of the forwarding table. The route may be associated with directing network traffic toward an endpoint network device. The device may remove the information identifying the route from the forwarding plane portion of the forwarding table without removing the information identifying the route from the control plane portion of the forwarding table based on determining that the route is inactive. The device may route network traffic based on the forwarding table after removing the information identifying the route from the forwarding plane portion of the forwarding table without removing the information identifying the route from the control plane portion of the forwarding table.

  • Patent number: 9930535
    Abstract: A wireless access point (AP) configured to operate in accordance with both Wi-Fi and Long-Term Evolution (LTE-U) standards/protocols jointly schedules transmit opportunities for Wi-Fi and LTE-U frames. The AP assigns one of multiple, prioritized, Wi-Fi access categories to each Wi-Fi transmit frame based on a type of data in the transmit frame. The AP also assigns to each LTE-U transmit frame an LTE-U access category prioritized relative to the Wi-Fi access categories. The AP schedules Wi-Fi and LTE-U transmit opportunities for the Wi-Fi transmit frames and the LTE-U transmit frames, respectively, in the shared channel bandwidth based on the prioritized Wi-Fi and LTE-U access categories.

  • Patent number: 9898220
    Abstract: A transceiver is designed to share memory and processing power amongst a plurality of transmitter and/or receiver latency paths, in a communications transceiver that carries or supports multiple applications. For example, the transmitter and/or receiver latency paths of the transceiver can share an interleaver/deinterleaver memory. This allocation can be done based on the data rate, latency, BER, impulse noise protection requirements of the application, data or information being transported over each latency path, or in general any parameter associated with the communications system.

  • Patent number: 9838217
    Abstract: A Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) link involves using a protocol stack having a CPRI layer and an emulation layer to emulate a point to point link, to enable the CPRI link to operate over a packet switched network. The emulation layer can be a pseudowire emulation which encapsulates multiple CPRI frames in a packet with overhead. A multiplexing layer such as Internet Protocol (IP) or Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) can be used, for sending the packet over an Ethernet network. The usual need for a point to point infrastructure for the CPRI link can be avoided and the CPRI link can be implemented over more complex but usually cheaper packet networks, thus reducing costs or enabling more widespread application over existing packet networks. This applies whether the packet network is dedicated to the CPRI link, or shared with other packets. It can be useful for distributed radio base stations.

  • Patent number: 9787430
    Abstract: Dynamic forward error correction (FEC) setting is discussed in which the network determines a FEC percentage for each video segment of a video streaming service, based on consideration of the transfer length of the video segment and the allocated bandwidth. When the transfer length and allocated bandwidth reflect transmission of less than peak bandwidth, the network will determine a higher FEC percentage that uses the otherwise wasted bandwidth to transmit additional redundancy symbols. The additional redundancy symbols increase the error recovery rate when collisions occur between streaming video reception and page monitoring occasions of other networks in multi-network, multi-subscriber identification module (SIM) mobile devices. A network entity may then transmit the dynamic FEC percentage for each video segment in the file description table (FDT) associated with the video streaming service.

  • Patent number: 9686198
    Abstract: This disclosure describes techniques for provisioning a CMTS to re-direct customer traffic into virtualized network functions (NFVs) service chains. This disclosure describes, in one example, techniques for providing linkage between DOCSIS service flows and NFV service chains in the DOCSIS provisioning system by embedding information within cable modem boot files used to configured cable modems within the broadband system. In one example, the techniques facilitate the definition of an NFV service-chain in the DOCSIS cable modem boot file provisioning system. A supported CMTS, CCAP or Edge Router intercepts and interprets the configuration to install packet classifiers that steer specific subscriber flows, as detailed in the DOCSIS cable modem boot file, through the service-chain.
