  • Patent number: 11451313
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for detecting radio link failure (RLF) and user equipment (UE). The UE is configured with multiples pairs of beams, each pair of beams comprising a transmitting beam used by a base station (BS) to transmit a signal and a corresponding receiving beam used by the UE to receive the signal. The method includes: in a lower layer, measuring the quality of a reference signal received through a receiving beam in each pair of beams and transmitted by a BS using a transmitting beam corresponding to the receiving beam, to serve as the channel quality for the multiple transmitting beams included in the multiple pairs of beams; determining whether the channel quality for the multiple transmitting beams meets a first condition; if so, transmitting to an upper layer an Out-Of-Sync (OOS) indication information, such that the upper layer determines if, according to the OOS indication information, RLF has occurred. As such, the present invention enables detection of RLF in a multi-beam scenario.

  • Patent number: 10862792
    Abstract: A method of transmitting a BGP message and a routing device are provided. According to an example of the method, a queue for holding BGP messages to be transmitted is partitioned into more than two subqueues according to types of BGP routes, where each of the subqueues is used to hold a BGP message carrying a corresponding type of BGP route. A BGP message carrying a BGP route to be advertised is placed into one of the more than two subqueues according to the type of the BGP route. A target subqueue is selected from the more than two subqueues according to a first scheduling algorithm, and a BGP message in the target subqueue is transmitted.

  • Patent number: 10841863
    Abstract: A network node controls communication of user equipment in a mobile network with cellular network access and wireless local area network access. The network node receives from a further network node, information concerning a wireless local area network access to which the user equipment is attached and information concerning a cellular network access to which the user equipment is attached. On the basis of the received information, the network node controls whether to provide at least one service via the wireless local area network access or via the cellular network access.

  • Patent number: 10819375
    Abstract: A simultaneous client wireless device includes wireless modules configured to perform communication functions of lower MAC (media access control) and PHY (physical) layers for wireless radios operable in multiple wireless bands. The simultaneous client wireless device also includes a communication module configured as an intermediate layer between the lower MAC layer of the wireless modules and a network layer. The communication module is configured to use an application programming interface to retrieve information from the lower MAC layer and write information to the lower MAC layer of each wireless module, perform communication functions of an upper MAC layer for the wireless bands, and manage simultaneous communications over the wireless bands. The communications over the wireless bands can use a local area network protocol.

  • Patent number: 10812381
    Abstract: Systems and methods are disclosed for directly responding to distributed network traffic received from a plurality of client devices. One method includes receiving, at a source device, client requests including a packet having a reserved portion, a source portion, and a destination portion; determining, for each client request, a target device from a plurality of target devices to respond to the client request; modifying, for each client request by the source device, the destination portion of the packet to an address of target device; modifying, for each client request by a switching layer prior to the target device receiving the modified client request, the destination portion; and responding directly to each client request by the target device without traversing the source device.

  • Patent number: 10805927
    Abstract: An apparatus and a method for transmitting data are included in a wireless network. The apparatus for transmitting data in a wireless network receives a status data packet sent by an upper layer, where the status data packet includes status information of the transmit end in a current status; discards, when there is a cached previous-status data packet, the previous-status data packet and caches the status data packet, where the previous-status data packet includes status information of the transmit end in a previous status; and sends the status data packet to a receive end when obtaining a sending resource, where the previous-status data packet and the status data packet have a same feature. In this way, a data packet delay is reduced; and in an application scenario of the Internet of Vehicles, timely data exchange between vehicles is ensured, and vehicle driving safety is improved.

  • Patent number: 10791018
    Abstract: A buffer box can be configured for an edge switch that is connected to one or more downstream nodes of a stateful stream processing system. Various upstream nodes can transmit data to downstream nodes for processing. At various locations in the data streams, the upstream nodes can include markers to indicate when a checkpoint should be generated or updated for the state of the data. Between markers, the data can be copied to a respective buffer box for the downstream node and edge switch. In the event the downstream node fails, the downstream node can obtain the checkpoint data to update state, and can receive the recent data from the local buffer box, rather than the corresponding upstream nodes. This can improve bandwidth usage and recovery time versus conventional recovery approaches, and can minimize impact of the recovery on other nodes across the network.
