  • Patent number: 11438805
    Abstract: Systems and methods provide a latency certification service. One or more network devices in an application service layer network receive a service request for a latency certification service and instantiate a Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) proxy for a data session between an application server device and a user equipment (UE) device. The one or more network devices obtain a digital certificate for the TCP proxy. The one or more network devices receive, at the TCP proxy, a data packet from the UE device; apply a certified timestamp to the data packet to form a certified timestamped data packet; and forward the certified timestamped data packet to the application server device.

  • Patent number: 11438257
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide stateful services in a chain of services identified for some data messages. The edge forwarding element receives a data message at a particular interface of the edge forwarding element that is traversing the edge forwarding element in a forward direction between two machines. The edge forwarding element identifies (1) a set of stateful services for the received data message and (2) a next hop associated with the identified set of stateful services in the forward direction and a next hop associated with the identified set of stateful services in the reverse direction. Based on the identified set of services and the next hops for the forward and reverse directions, the edge forwarding element generates and stores first and second connection tracking records for the forward and reverse data message flows, respectively used to forward data messages received subsequently for the flow.

  • Patent number: 11424901
    Abstract: Loop timing is performed in a Reconciliation Sublayer (RS) so that the transmit clock frequency can be adjusted to be equal to the receive clock frequency for the entire PHY (including the physical coding sublayer (PCS)). One of two partners is selected to be the timing Slave to the other. If only one partner is capable of loop timing, that partner becomes the Slave. If both partners are capable of loop timing, symmetry breaking can be used to determine which partner should become Slave.

  • Patent number: 11394647
    Abstract: The disclosure provides an approach for seamless hand-off of data traffic in public cloud environments with reverse path filtering. Techniques are provided for activating an edge services gateway (ESG) virtual computing instance (VCI) on a new host in a data center. Before an underlay converges on the new host, inbound and outbound packets for the ESG VCI are sent by the underlay to the old host and the old tunnels the packets to the new host via a pre-created overlay tunnel. For outbound packets, the new host tunnels the packets back to the old host after the ESG VCI performs network address translation of the source address. Once the new host detects that the underlay converges, the new host stops redirecting the outbound packets to the old host.

  • Patent number: 11379405
    Abstract: Certain Embodiments described herein relate to configuring the network-storage stack of two devices (e.g., physical or virtual) communicating together (e.g., an initiator and a target, as defined below) with Internet Small Computer Systems Interface (iSCSI) extension for remote direct memory access (RDMA) iSER, which is a protocol designed to utilize RDMA to accelerate iSCSI data transfer. The iSER protocol is implemented as an iSER datamover layer that acts as an interface between an iSCSI layer and an RDMA layer of the network-storage stacks of the two devices. Using iSER in conjunction with RDMA allows for bypassing the existing traditional network protocol layers (e.g., TCP/IP protocol layers) of the devices and permits data to be transferred directly, between the two devices, using certain memory buffers, thereby avoiding memory copies taking place when the existing network protocol layers are used.

  • Patent number: 11256652
    Abstract: A Multi-I/O SPI for precision converters supports a Dual/Quad/Octal SPI to support the speed requirements for digital transmission and also includes a special mode that can be enabled by hardware and/or software to remove the bit scrambling requirement dictated by the JEDEC standard. The special mode removes the scramble requirement and associates each of the bidirectional data lines to a specific channel. The special mode provides backward compatibility that permits the precision converter to be used with controllers that do not natively support the JEDEC standard. Also, the Multi-I/O SPI includes registers divided into a primary region that is accessed only in default mode at power-up for write and/or read operations, and a secondary region that is accessed by any mode enabled in the control register. By restricting access to the “control” register area to a pre-defined mode in the converter at power-up, the access mode can be controlled.

  • Patent number: 11212704
    Abstract: The present application provides a method and device for transmitting data, the method comprising: generating a target RLC PDU, the data field of the RLC PDU including only one complete RLC SDU or including only one cutting segment of a complete RLC SDU. If the data field of the RLC PDU includes only the complete RLC SDU, the RLC PDU does not include a sequence number (SN); if the data field of the RLC PDU includes only one cutting segment of the complete RLC SDU, the target RLC PDU include the SN; and the value of the SN included in the target RLC PDU is the same as the value of the SN included in the RLC PDU including other cutting segments of the complete RLC SDU. The method for transmitting data of the present application can reduce air interface transmission overhead.

  • Patent number: 11190992
    Abstract: A device communicates with a terminal in association with at least a first other device, using at least two carriers, wherein at least a first carrier towards the terminal is established from the device and at least a second carrier is established towards the terminal from the first other device. The device receives a report indicative of a connection quality of the first carrier, responsive thereto issues a request for handover of the first carrier towards a second device, sends relocation information in relation to the first carrier towards the first other device, and only after sending that relocation information, commands the terminal to perform a handover of the first carrier to the second device. Such device, in cooperation with other devices, accomplishes an optimized handover in terms of a primary component carrier relocation from a serving eNB towards a target eNB, while a secondary component carrier is maintained.

  • Patent number: 11184942
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for a WTRU to operate using multiple schedulers. The WTRU may exchange data with the network over more than one data path, such that each data path may use a radio interface connected to a different network node and each node may be associated with an independent scheduler. For example, a WTRU may establish a RRC connection between the WTRU and a network. The RRC connection may establish a first radio interface between the WTRU and a first serving site of the network and a second radio interface between the WTRU and a second serving site of the network. The RRC connection may be established between the WTRU and the MeNB and a control function may be established between the WTRU and the SCeNB. The WTRU may receive data from the network over the first radio interface or the second radio interface.

  • Patent number: 11157341
    Abstract: A method for facilitating communication between application components is provided. The method comprises invoking, by a data consumer, a data contract by requesting data, wherein the data contract specifies communication parameters between application components. The data contract identifies and invokes a provider component in response to the invocation by the data consumer. The provider translates input data from the data consumer to construct a producer request and sends the producer request to a data producer. The data producer sends output data to the provider in response to the producer request. The provider translates and sends the output data to the data contract, and the data contract send the translated output data to the data consumer.
