  • Patent number: 11172527
    Abstract: Using a method of operating a system that includes remote servers, multiple electronic devices, and a wireless portable, the portable wireless device receives notification of an incoming call. The system uses the remote servers and other parts of the system to determine that one of the electronic devices can wirelessly communicate with the portable wireless device, and establishes a wireless connection between the portable wireless device and that device. The system determines whether the user is also located with the portable wireless device and wirelessly connected device and if so, routes incoming call audio to that device. If the system determines that the user is located with a different device, incoming call audio is routed from the portable wireless device to the device near the portable wireless device, and then the call audio is bridged to the device near the user.

  • Patent number: 10992728
    Abstract: Media streaming is more efficient in terms of transmission bitrate consumption, transmission latency and/or fair trade of transmission capacity among several by pushing media content rather than the client pulling media content from the server. Pushing media content to the client at a varying bitrate enables to shift, at least partially, the control over the streaming from the client towards the server. The server may continue to push segments of the media content to the client even without receiving explicit queries or directives for these segments thereby reducing upstream bandwidth consumption. As far as the bitrate adaption is concerned, the server may act as a slave remotely controlled by the client in that media content is pushed at a bitrate depending on the client's most recently sent information such as reception situation information explicitly indicating the bitrate to be used.

One embodiment of the invention provides secure and non-interactive communication of clock information over an unsecured communications channel. This communication provides perfect forward secrecy, while detecting and blocking message spoofing, message replay, denial of service and cryptographic performance attacks. This mechanism also bounds the effect of message delay manipulation. The mechanism consists of two components, a filtered time encryptor (16) and a filtered time decryptor (28). The filtered time encryptor (16) produces a message in two parts; a time token followed by an encrypted message body. The time token is used as a filter to detect most attacks and to determine the message key.

  • Patent number: 10609213
    Abstract: Embodiments are provided for the automatic real-time recording and processing of media in a communications network based on the context of the media. In one embodiment, a media stream is received in an analysis module in a service platform in the communications network. The media stream may represent a communication session between a calling party and a call center in the network. The incoming media steam is analyzed to identify words comprising a context of the communication session. A determination is then made as to whether the context of the communication session is related to a set of business rules associated with the service platform which may automatically trigger the retention of a recording of the communication session. If the context of the communication session is related to the set of business rules, the retention of the communication session is automatically triggered in real-time at a recording module.

  • Patent number: 10574755
    Abstract: The present subject matter relates generally to optimization of distribution of data packets in a High Performance Computing (HPC) switch. The HPC switch receives data packets from controllers communicatively connected to HPC switch, through interconnected Queue Pair (QP) lanes and assigns a destination virtual lane (VL) for each data packet based on service level information. Further, the HPC switch generates plurality of clusters of ports that are coupled with each interconnected VL based on latency determined dynamically for each port. Finally, the HPC switch transmits a first group of data packets through ports belonging to a primary cluster of plurality of clusters and transmits acknowledgement key-packet associated with second group of data packets through the ports belonging to secondary clusters of plurality of clusters, based on destination VL assigned for each data packet to other controllers for optimizing the distribution of the plurality of data packets in the HPC switch.

  • Patent number: 10498786
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for adaptively providing multiple bit rate streaming media in a server. The method for adaptively providing multiple bit rate streaming media comprises: acquiring network quality information; in the case that it is determined based on the network quality information that bit rate switching is needed, selecting one queue from all queues as the transmitting queue, wherein multimedia data frames with different bit rates for the same media content are stored in different queues; reading the multimedia data frame from the transmitting queue and sending it, and deleting all multimedia data frames in other queues having the same media content as the already-sent multimedia data frame. The technical solutions provided by the present disclosure reduces bit rate switching delay while implementing adaptive bit rate switching, and implements quick and seamless adaptive bit rate switching.

  • Patent number: 10459778
    Abstract: A method of communicating messages between threads. For each thread there are defined M buckets. When a transmitting thread has a message to send, it assigns the message to the bucket numbered m=Tid_r mod M to await transmission, where Tid_r is the ID of the receiving thread. The bucket m=Tid_t mod M is the home bucket, where Tid_t is the ID of the transmitting thread. After accumulating multiple messages, a batch transmission is performed, comprising a plurality of successive phases p. Each phase comprises: i) from each bucket other than the home bucket, transmitting some or all of the messages in the bucket as a batch to one of the receiving threads of the bucket, and ii) except in the last phase, incrementing the phase p by 1, and redistributing the messages remaining in the home bucket according to m=(Tid_r/M{circumflex over (?)}p) mod M.

  • Patent number: 10320528
    Abstract: A fault tolerant communication protocol transmits information across a communication channel from a transmitting device to a receiving device. The receiving device echoes back a copy of the transmitted information to the transmitting device. The transmitting device sends a first valid signal across the communication channel if the echoed information matches the transmitted information. The receiving device sends a second valid signal across the communication channel responsive to the first valid signal. The transmitting device stops sending of the first valid signal responsive to the second valid signal and the receiving device stops sending the second valid signal responsive to determining the first device has stopped sending the first valid signal. The receiving device can then update its state based on a successful transfer.
