  • Patent number: 10999212
    Abstract: A multi-layer resource aggregation (RA) stack may generate prescriptive activation timetables for controlling activation states for computing resources. To facilitate operator control and adjustment, the RA stack may, at an aggregation engine layer, aggregate the computing resource into one or more resource aggregates. The computing resources within the resource aggregates may have similar individual activation prescription patterns. Machine learning techniques may be used by the RA stack to identify these related individual activation prescription patterns and aggregate the computing resources accordingly. Once aggregated, the RA stack may make a uniform activation determination for the aggregates as single units. Therefore, the computing resources within the aggregate may be controlled and/or adjust together. Thus, the RA stack increases the scalability of implementation of prescriptive computing resource activation state determinations.

According to certain embodiments, a device is provided that receives off-air (e.g., broadcast) and/or cable (e.g., ClearQAM) programming via one or more antennas and caches the programming in various streams having various bit rates for later viewing using, for example, Adaptive Bit Rate (ABR) streaming. Such a device can be incorporated in a larger system that can stream content via a data communication network (e.g., the Internet) and the device in a seamless manner. The device also can be controlled by a remote system via the data communication network, and further can be configured to stream content to a remote device via the data communication network.

  • Patent number: 10542400
    Abstract: An approach is provided in which a mobile device registered to a first mobile number sends a migration request that initiates a service migration from the first mobile number to a second mobile number. The mobile device receives a list of services that are currently registered to the first mobile number, and sends a selection of one or more of the services to migrate from the first mobile number to the second number. In turn, the mobile device receives a confirmation message that the selected services are migrated from the first mobile number to the second mobile number.

  • Patent number: 10275961
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are provided for handling the response sequence with geometric elimination of a plurality of keyless fobs. The remote fobs are interrogated with a body control module. A first signal is issued from a first set of remote fobs in a first time slot in response to the interrogation signal from the body control module. A second signal is issued from a second set of remote fobs in a second time slot in response to the interrogation signal from the body control module. The second time slot differs from the first time slot. A first remote fob is authenticated when the first signal is received by the body control module in a free and clear state. The second remote fob is authenticated when the second signal is received by the body control module in the free and clear state. If neither the first nor second signals are received in the free and clear state, the remote fobs are re-interrogated by the body control module.
