  • Patent number: 11330152
    Abstract: The present invention discloses an image data transmission apparatus. The lock confirmation circuit receives an original signal having an original pulse width from the image data reception apparatus to generate an output signal. The image data transmission circuit determines that the image data reception apparatus locks a transmission frequency when an output pulse width is larger than a pulse threshold value to perform a synchronous image data transmission. The lock confirmation circuit sets the output pulse width to be a lengthened pulse width when a difference between the original pulse width and the pulse threshold value is smaller than a predetermined value and the original pulse width is not smaller than the pulse threshold value. The lock confirmation circuit sets the output pulse width to be a shortened pulse width when the difference is smaller than the predetermined value and the original pulse width is smaller than the pulse threshold value.

  • Patent number: 10120977
    Abstract: A healthcare management and communication system including a central server, home base devices, and portable medical assistant devices (PMAD) providing secure electronic communications among medical facilities and healthcare providers, while ensuring privacy of patient medical records. In an embodiment, the central server communicates with the home base device(s) and the PMAD providing information necessary for a healthcare provider to perform a procedure for a patient. The healthcare communication system provides security for patient information by allowing the healthcare provider to access some basic patient information on the PMAD, including directions to the patient's house, when the PMAD is in all locations. Only when the PMAD is within a physical proximity to a selected home base device can the healthcare provider access the corresponding patient's confidential information necessary for the on-site visit.

  • Patent number: 10075468
    Abstract: Systems and methods for an improved DDoS mitigation approach are provided. According to one embodiment, a current threshold for a network connection characteristic is established within a Denial-of-Service (DoS) mitigation device logically interposed between a protected resource of a private network and multiple client devices residing external to the private network. A number of connections between the client devices and the protected network resource are tracked. During a period of time in which the number of connections exceeds a connection count threshold: (i) for each of the connections, a measured value for the network connection characteristic is compared to the current threshold; (ii) responsive to a determination that the measured value exceeds the current threshold, the connection is dropped; and (iii) the current threshold is periodically reduced, such that only those connections complying with the current threshold are maintained.

  • Patent number: 10050965
    Abstract: A control network communication arrangement includes a second protocol embedded into a first protocol in a way that modules supporting the second protocol may be aware of and utilize the first protocol whereas modules supporting only the first protocol may not be aware of the second protocol. Operation of modules using the second protocol does not disturb operation of the modules not configured to use or understand the second protocol. By one approach, unique additional information is embedded into a message to provide authentication of the first protocol message. This acts as a quality check protecting against unauthorized messaged being sent on the control network.

  • Patent number: 10044471
    Abstract: A method for passing communications over an Optical Transport Network (OTN) from a first communication interface to a second communication interface. The first interface extracts characters from received data symbols, maps the characters into OTN communication frames and discards the synchronization symbols. The mapping is performed using a Bit-synchronous Mapping Procedure (BMP), while filling some locations in the OTN frames with stuffing characters, so that the rate of the characters matches a desired rate of the OTN communication frames. The characters are extracted from the communication frames in the second communication interface by synchronizing to the mapped input frames independently of the synchronization symbols. The input frames are reconstructed to produce reconstructed input frames including the data symbols and the synchronization symbols, by re-encoding the extracted characters. In some embodiments, data from Ethernet frames is passed along with the extracted characters in the OTN frames.

  • Patent number: 10045016
    Abstract: A method of managing lip synchronization error in a multimedia content delivery network includes identifying a video packet and an audio packet associated with the video packet and determining a synchronization offset between the audio and video packets at a first monitoring point in the network. The audio and video packets are then detected at a second monitoring point in the network and a second synchronization offset is determined. When a delta between the first synchronization offset and the second synchronization offset exceeds a threshold, lip synchronization error information may be automatically recorded and/or reported to a service provider and corrective action may be taken if potential sources of the lip synchronization error are within the domain of the service provider. The video packet may be identified by a timestamp within the packet and the audio packet may be identified by audio data within the audio packet.

  • Patent number: 10033587
    Abstract: Concepts and technologies are disclosed herein for controlling network traffic using acceleration policies. According to various embodiments of the concepts and technologies disclosed herein, an acceleration application can be executed by a device for analyzing data requests, determining if the data communications requested by way of the request can be delayed, accelerated, or otherwise modified (“shifted”) based upon policies and/or network operating conditions. In some embodiments, the acceleration application can be configured to access acceleration policies that can define how certain traffic is to be shifted. The acceleration application also can be configured to obtain and analyze network data to determine network operating conditions and determine, based upon the determined conditions, if traffic is to be shifted based upon the network operating conditions.
