    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for synchronizing multiple channels in an access network, where the multiple channels are neighboring channels such that a guard band between them or use of a diplexer to prevent inter-channel interference is not required. Synchronization is achieved by defining channel MAP (media access plan) cycle structures such that all channels work in the same direction (upstream US or downstream DS) at any given time. Moreover, the network controller of channel may send out a beacon to allow new nodes to join. A long MAP cycle (402) may be followed by three consecutive regular MAP cycles (404, 406), and (408). These MAP cycles are repeated between beacon transmissions. Synchronization allows multiple channels to be configured contiguous (without a guard band between neighbouring channels) and without utilizing diplexers. A plurality of customer premises equipment may operate on each of the communications channels.

  • Patent number: 11561918
    Abstract: Deselect times can be specified for transactions that are to utilize a communication bus shared by multiple devices. A host can communicate with a multiplexer to select a channel for communication on that bus. If this host communicates with the multiplexer over the bus as well, the host can be prevented from instructing the multiplexer to deselect a channel if the bus is hung. To provide for recovery in such situations, one or more deselect times can be specified for one or more channels of a bus. If a transaction for a device on one of these channels is ongoing when the deselect time is reached, the multiplexer can automatically deselect that channel in order to enable other devices to communicate over other channels on that bus. In some embodiments, a riskiness of a transaction or device can be determined for purposes of applying or determining a relevant deselect time.

  • Patent number: 10904917
    Abstract: A system and method dynamically schedule wireless transmissions without collision. A master transmitter periodically transmits a time mark during a first predefined time slot of a plurality of consecutive time slots that form a transmission block. Multiple consecutive transmission blocks form a frame. An announcement transmission from a wireless transmitting device is received via at least one receiver during a second predefined time slot of the plurality of time slots. An allocator allocates, at least partly based upon the received announcement transmission, a third time slot of the plurality of time slots to the wireless transmitting device. A time slot reservation area of at least one subsequently transmitted time mark includes indication of the allocation of the third time slot to the wireless transmitting device. The wireless transmitting device receives the subsequently transmitted time mark and transmits only during the third time slot of subsequent frames.

  • Patent number: 10742523
    Abstract: Some tests can be implemented as services. A network provider can deploy (“push”) a test to a container resident on one or more devices of the network, either at installation, periodically, or when a problem is reported. When a customer reports an issue, services running on one or more devices of the customer's installation can cause the containerized tests to be run. For example, the central office of the network provider can initiate a request to run the test through the internet (or other connection) by the container. In some implementations, there is an overlap of the service based test set with traditional technician initiated test sets forming a hybrid testing architecture.
