  • Patent number: 10735294
    Abstract: Integrating a further communication bridge into a running data processing system. The data processing system includes a communication client running a first operating system having no own communication stack and at least a first communication bridge running a second operating system having an own communication stack. The first communication bridge is configured as a master communication bridge. The further communication bridge announces itself as a slave communication bridge at an announcement time. The master communication bridge executes a quiesce process on the network adapter and on the API of the communication client when there are no data packets in the queue with a sending time earlier than the announcement time. The master communication bridge extracts the state of its communication stack and sends it to the further communication bridge. The master communication bridge resumes the network adapter and the API.

  • Patent number: 10694006
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a method for a parser of a processing pipeline. The method receives a packet for processing by a set of match-action stages of the processing pipeline. The method stores packet header field (PHF) values from a first set of PHFs of the packet in a set of data containers. The first set of PHFs are for use by the match-action stages. For a second set of PHFs not used by the match-action stages, the method generates descriptive data that identifies locations of the PHFs of the second set within the packet. The method sends (i) the set of data containers to the match-action stages and (ii) the packet data and the generated descriptive data outside of the match-action stages to a deparser that uses the packet data, generated descriptive data, and the set of data containers as modified by the match-action stages to reconstruct a modified packet.

    Abstract: It is possible to accurately and securely execute conversion from an MPEG-2TS format to an MP4 format. A data converting unit that executes format conversion from an MPEG-2TS format to an MP4 format sorts out TS packets storing video data from MPEG-2TS format data, selects a TS packet having a start code (SC) at the top of a payload on the basis of header information of the sorted out TS packets, and extracts payload configuration data other than the start code (SC) and sets the payload configuration data as configuration data of MP4 format data. The data converting unit determines, on the basis of, for example, a value of a transport priority set in a header of the TS packet, whether or not the TS packet is a TS packet in which a start code (SC) is set in a top region of a payload.

In the idle listening mode, the AP may transmit frames to the STA using a higher bandwidth, but the STA can only sense channels in a lower bandwidth to save energy. The second method transmits a frame to the AP associated with the STA to notify the AP the change of operation of the STA from the active mode to the idle listening mode. In the idle listening mode, the AP may transmit frames to the STA using the lower bandwidth, and the STA can only sense channels in the lower bandwidth to save energy.

  • Patent number: 10424306
    Abstract: An audio coding terminal and method is provided. The terminal includes a coding mode setting unit to set an operation mode, from plural operation modes, for input audio coding by a codec, configured to code the input audio based on the set operation mode such that when the set operation mode is a high frame erasure rate (FER) mode the codec codes a current frame of the input audio according to a select frame erasure concealment (FEC) mode of one or mom FEC modes. Upon the setting of the operation mode to be the High FER mode, the one FEC mode is selected, from the one or more FED modes predetermined for the High FER mode, to control the codec by incorporating of redundancy within a coding of the input audio or as separate redundancy information separate from the coded input audio according to the selected one FEC mode.

  • Patent number: 10425357
    Abstract: A method for transmitting a data stream in a flexible Ethernet, where the method includes obtaining a to-be-transmitted data stream, allocating the data stream to N physical connections according to a sequence of the N physical connections in a physical connection group in order to obtain N sub-streams respectively corresponding to the N physical connections, and transmitting the N sub-streams using the N physical connections, where a sub-stream transmitted over each physical connection includes configuration status information of each physical connection, and the configuration status information includes an identifier of each physical connection and an identifier of a physical connection adjacent to each physical connection in the physical connection group. The method reduces, in a data stream transmission process, overheads required for identifying a sequence of all the physical connections in the physical connection group and improves transmission efficiency.

  • Patent number: 10404532
    Abstract: In accordance with one or more embodiments, aspects of the disclosure may provide efficient, effective, and convenient ways of managing network devices. In particular, a client router may connect to an upstream virtual gateway. The virtual gateway may manage a large number of client devices. Each client router may be represented virtually within the gateway as a virtual router. The virtual gateways may be distributed regionally, in order to manage large numbers of client routers and/or to reduce transmission delays. The virtual gateways may be managed by a gateway controller. The gateway controller may be centralized, and perform various configuration functions, such as configurations for hardware, logical networking, or content access policies. In some instances, messages sent between the gateway controller using a first protocol and the client router using a second protocol may be translated by a protocol agent.

  • Patent number: 10396458
    Abstract: A switch assembly, a switch assembly control method, a controller, and a base station are disclosed, which relate to the wireless communications field. The switch assembly includes: a mechanical normally open switch (102), a movable contact (104), and a controller (106), where the controller (106) is connected to a phase shifter (108) of a remote electrical tilt unit, and the movable contact (104) is arranged to move with a driving rod (1082) of the phase shifter (108); when the movable contact (104) reaches a specified position, the mechanical normally open switch (102) is triggered to close. A prior-art problem that interference is caused to a base station signal because an integrated semiconductor chip radio frequency switch is a nonlinear element and a problem that installation is relatively difficult because a volume of a relay switch is relatively large are resolved.

  • Patent number: 10397851
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a base station in a cellular communication network and methods of operation thereof. In one embodiment, a base station determines that the base station is transitioning to an unavailable state. The base station then notifies one or more radio network nodes with which the base station conducts base-station-to-node communication that the base station is unavailable. Thereafter, in one embodiment, the one or more radio network nodes cease communication attempts with the base station. In this manner, the radio network nodes can avoid spending additional resources on attempts to re-establish communication connections to base stations that tend to be offline more often (e.g., low-power base stations (LP-BSs)).

  • Patent number: 10382281
    Abstract: A method and system for rule based Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) to Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) migration assisting framework is disclosed. The method provides guidance and assistance for migrating a product, a system or the like to IPv6. The method views across the complete development life cycle, not restricting only to the impacted code base of the system artifacts. The method scans the system artifacts for IPv4 dependency detection and then provides IPv4 Dependency Removal Effort Estimation (IDRE). The IPv4 dependency detection is based on predefined Meta-rules constructed with respect to the context of product. The IDRE combines Analysis Effort (AE) and Project Execution Effort (PEE) to provide a user and/or the organization order of magnitude estimate based on the assessment of IPv4 dependencies, level of coupling with IPv4 dependencies against different parts of the system artifacts.
