    Abstract: This application discloses a transmission method, a transmission apparatus, and a communications device. The transmission method includes: performing polar encoding on a bit sequence, to obtain an encoded sequence, where the bit sequence includes control information and a cyclic redundancy check CRC sequence; fragmenting the encoded sequence, to obtain n encoded subsequences, where n is an integer, and n>0; and scrambling the n encoded subsequences by using n scrambling sequences respectively, to obtain n scrambled sequences. In the transmission method, the n scrambling sequences are newly defined based on encoding and decoding features of a polar code, and the n scrambling sequences additionally carry ?log2n?-bit information. According to the foregoing encoding method, signaling overheads are reduced.

Circuitry in the first master/scanner wirelessly scans to detect an advertisement transmitted by a first slave/advertiser of the first group and transmits a connection request in response to the detecting, and transmits a schedule for subsequent advertisements after an initial advertisement by the first slave/advertiser. Circuitry in the first slave/advertiser transmits the initial advertisement, receives an acceptance a resulting connection request, establishes association with the first master scanner, and then causes the first slave/advertiser to go to sleep, to wake up and transmit subsequent advertisements according to the schedule and accept resulting connection requests, and transmits available data to the first master/scanner, and goes back to sleep.

  • Patent number: 10747616
    Abstract: A method for execution by a storage unit of a dispersed storage network includes updating a rebuilding task list based on detecting at least one storage error associated with storage of encoded data slices in a set of storage units that includes the storage unit. An encoded data slice is rebuilt based on the rebuilding task list and an affinity with the encoded data slice. The rebuilding task list is again updated based on detecting execution of at least one task of the rebuilding task list. The rebuilding task list is further updated based on detecting expiration of an execution time frame between sequential tasks of the rebuilding task list.

  • Patent number: 10735373
    Abstract: A method and technique for communications over multiple protocol interfaces in a computing environment includes identifying a first communications protocol of a network interface for ingress data packet communications. Responsive to the identified first communications protocol of the network interface differing from a second communications protocol used for the data packet communications, fragmentation data according to a data packet fragmentation protocol corresponding to the second communications protocol is derived from an application layer header of the data packet communications. A logical packet is re-assembled from the data packet communications using the data packet fragmentation protocol and the fragmentation data.

  • Patent number: 10680644
    Abstract: A predictive model utilizes a set of coefficients for processing received input data. To reduce memory usage storing the coefficients, a compression circuit compresses the set of coefficients prior to storage by generating a cumulative count distribution of the coefficient values, and identifying a distribution function approximating the cumulative count distribution. Function parameters for the determined function are stored in a memory and used by a decompression circuit to apply the function the compressed coefficients to determine the decompressed component values. Storing the function parameters may consume less memory in comparison to storing a look-up table for decompression, and may reduce an amount of memory look-ups required during decompression.

  • Patent number: 10645466
    Abstract: Novel tools and techniques are provided for implementing media content delivery. In some embodiments, a globally unique identifier (“GUID”) associated with a particular media content might be embedded in headers of packets of a transport stream of the media content. When the transport stream is received by a user device, the GUID might enable retrieval of the necessary metadata (and/or updates of metadata) for enabling presentation of the media content. Alternatively or additionally, ratings or similar information can likewise be embedded in the headers of packets or I-frames of the transport stream, which enables a user (e.g., parent) to easily block or skip objectionable content from children who may be present. Alternatively or additionally, the transport stream may be combined with auxiliary data streams containing metadata and other associated auxiliary content to create a combined transport stream, to ensure no lost or corrupted media content during transmission.

  • Patent number: 10637711
    Abstract: Transmitting apparatus and receiving apparatus for communication systems using coded orthogonal frequency-division multiplexed (COFDM) dual-subcarrier modulation (DCM) signals. The same coded data is mapped both to COFDM subcarriers located in the lower-frequency half spectrum of the DCM signal and to COFDM subcarriers located in its upper-frequency half spectrum. The mapping of COFDM subcarriers in those half spectra employ labeling diversity preferred for reception of DCM with less error when accompanied by interfering additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN). In preferred forms of COFDM DCM signal, the quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) of COFDM subcarriers is Gray mapped to position palindromic lattice-point labels along one of the diagonals of each square QAM constellation.
