Transmission Bandwidth Conservation Patents (Class 370/477)
  • Patent number: 10311154
    Abstract: Columns of a table are stored in either row-major format or column-major format in an in-memory DBMS. For a given table, one set of columns is stored in column-major format; another set of columns for a table are stored in row-major format. This way of storing columns of a table is referred to herein as dual-major format. In addition, a row in a dual-major table is updated “in-place”, that is, updates are made directly to column-major columns without creating an interim row-major form of the column-major columns of the row. Users may submit database definition language (“DDL”) commands that declare the row-major columns and column-major columns of a table.

    Abstract: A method for retaining a Robust Header Compression (ROHC) state in a User Equipment (UE) during switching from a Voice over Long Term Evolution (VoLTE) call to a video call or vice versa is provided. When the VoLTE call is in progress and if a user switches the VoLTE call to the video call, then the RTP header information is sent to an Application Processor (AP) from a Communication Processor (CP). The ROHC compressor continues the compression of the RTP packets using the existing built context for the video call. Further, when the video call is in progress and if the user switches the video call to the VoLTE call, then the RTP header information is sent to the CP from the AP. The ROHC context is reused by exchanging the RTP header information between the AP and the CP.

  • Patent number: 10103912
    Abstract: Data communication/transfer has been in binary form from the first simple service through today's complex internet systems. Binary uses zeros and ones transmitted as voltage changes. The invention introduces multi-state digits beyond zeroes and ones to a multi-schema, one, two, three and/or more, thus increasing capacity and speed of data transfer. The present invention uses an electrical pulse that can be phased to communicate the binary data in a multi-phased format. The phased information pulse results in a significant increase in combinations used for the transfer of information. This format improves capacity utilization of networks, increases data transfer speed and secondly provides new opportunities for applications. In the future, the invention can also provide added benefits in data centers and communications security.

  • Patent number: 9635080
    Abstract: Client buffer thresholds are dynamically adjusted to provide quick start up and smooth playback in a variety of network conditions. In some examples, multiple buffer configurations are available. An initial buffer configuration may be used in typical circumstances and will yield good behavior in most cases. A modified buffer configuration can be used when limited available network resources prevent smooth playback. In some embodiments, a client buffer configuration is continuously adapted based on network throughput and data transfer rates.

  • Patent number: 9622082
    Abstract: To detect the theft of a mobile terminal (TM) connected to a radiocommunication network (RR), a device (DA) capable of communicating with a location register (HLR) initially stores an IMSI identity and an IMEI number for the mobile terminal (TM) together with secret data (DonS) provided by the owner of the mobile terminal. After authentication of the mobile terminal by a network entity, the device retrieves the IMSI identity and IMEI number for the mobile terminal, compares the retrieved IMSI identity and IMEI number with the initially stored IMSI identity and IMEI number, queries the mobile terminal (TM) by asking the user of the mobile terminal to provide the secret data if either the retrieved IMSI identity or IMEI number are different from the initially stored IMSI identity or IMEI number, and detects a theft of the mobile terminal if the secret data provided are different from the initially stored secret data (DonS).

  • Patent number: 9609548
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are used to create RLC PDUs in advance of the E-TFC selection for the MAC PDU that will include this or these RLC PDU(s). The apparatus may be configured to pre-generate RLC PDUs for transmission in a later TTI. This approach avoids the large peak processing requirement due to the tight delay constraint if any RLC PDU to be included into a MAC PDU had to be created after the determination of the size of this MAC PDU, i.e. after E-TFC selection. The method and apparatus maintain an approximate match between the size of an RLC PDU and the size of the MAC PDU it is included into. Maintaining this approximate match ensures that the RLC PDU error rate due to HARQ residual errors remains low. This approach may be designed as “semi-radio aware” or “radio-aware with delay”.

  • Patent number: 9565124
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and apparatus for a low-latency network interface. One of the methods includes receiving a signal having encoded data. A bit stream is generated from the received signal. Bits of the bit stream are shifted into a shift register until a feedback signal generated by a synchronization decoder is received. After the feedback signal is received, output of the shift register is descrambled to generate descrambled data. The descrambled data is stored in a first parallel register when the synchronization decoder determines that the data in the shift register is aligned to a word boundary. If the data in the first parallel register is properly aligned, the output is stored in a second parallel register.

  • Patent number: 9467200
    Abstract: A system and method for transmitting wideband signals via a radio communication system adapted for transmitting narrow-band signals is described. A base station is used to transmit and receive a plurality of relatively narrow-band and a plurality of relatively wideband signals. The electromagnetic spectrum available to the plurality of narrow-band signals is selectively shared with the electromagnetic spectrum available to the wideband signals by systematically separating the orthogonal codes and the carrier frequencies used for transmission. The prefixes of the orthogonal codes are preferably mutually exclusive and the carrier frequencies are preferably separated by an offset. The offset may be substantially equal to an integer multiple of the narrow-band signal's chip rate. Alternatively, the offset may be substantially equal to an odd multiple of one half the narrow-band signal's chip rate in which case every other bit of the orthogonally encoded data is inverted.
