  • Patent number: 11936815
    Abstract: A system and method for managing virtual queues. A cloud-based queue service manages a plurality of queues hosted by one or more entities. The queue service is in constant communication with the entities providing queue management, queue analysis, and queue recommendations. The queue service is likewise in direct communication with queued persons. Sending periodic updates while also motivating and incentivizing punctuality and minimizing wait times based on predictive analysis. The predictive analysis uses “Big Data” and other available data resources, for which the predictions assist in the balancing of persons across multiple queues for the same event or multiple persons across a sequence of queues for sequential events.

According to certain other aspects, security features such as sender authentication and message originality can be implemented at the protocol level, reducing the delays associated with implementing security features at higher levels in the communication stack. Additionally, the complexity of the security configuration is minimized by implementing the security features in hardware.

  • Patent number: 10993099
    Abstract: Aspects of the present invention provide a software defined radio (SDR) system and/or an approach for enabling heterogeneous device communications using a SDR device in an internet of things (IoT) environment. In an embodiment, the SDR device (e.g., a network adapter thereof) obtains a set of communications sent by an IoT device. Based on an analysis of the set of communications by an SDR bot running on the SDR device, a protocol of the set of communications is determined. The SDR bot interprets a communication of the set of communications, and, based on the interpreted communication, a notification is forwarded by the SDR device (e.g., by the network adapter). This notification can include an instruction to another IoT device to perform a task, a report based on communications from multiple IoT devices, or the like.

  • Patent number: 10687385
    Abstract: In a communication system in which a plurality of bearers are set up between UE and one or more PGWs, a PGW measures an idle time for each bearer and determines whether or not the measured idle time has reached an idle timer threshold value which is determined in advance for each of the plurality of bearers (Step 1). Then, when it is determined that the idle time for one bearer, for example, bearer 2, has reached the idle timer threshold value (Step 2), a PGW2 requests an MME to release bearer 2 via an SGW2 (Steps 3 and 4), and the MME performs a process of releasing bearer 2 in response to the request (Step 5 and the like).

  • Patent number: 10645200
    Abstract: Alternate acknowledgment (ACK) signals in a coalescing Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) system are disclosed. In one aspect, a network interface card (NIC) examines packet payloads, and the NIC generates an ACK signal for a sending server before sending a coalesced packet to an internal processor. Further, the NIC may examine incoming packets and send an ACK signal to the internal processor for ACK signals that are received from the sending server before sending the coalesced packet to the internal processor. By extracting and sending the ACK signals before sending the corresponding payloads in the coalesced packet, latency that would otherwise be incurred waiting for the ACK signal is eliminated. Elimination of such latency may improve network performance and may provide power savings.
