  • Patent number: 11509766
    Abstract: A method and system to preserve group call audio during a cloud-based group call service upgrade are provided. Audio duplication requests are received and managed through a message broker and instances of an audio distribution service. When a determination is made that an audio distribution service needs to be upgraded, the group call is preserved by generating new instances of the audio distribution service. The new instances of the audio distribution service are added to a queue of the message broker, and old instance of the audio duplication service are gracefully shutdown. Each new instance of the audio distribution service is used to route an audio stream associated with each of the original audio duplication requests, while the olds instances of the audio duplication service are being gracefully shutdown.

    Abstract: Concepts and technologies disclosed herein are directed to the optimization of over-the-air (“OTA”) file distribution for connected cars based upon a heuristic scheduling algorithm. A schedule provided by the heuristic scheduling algorithm is designed to distribute OTA data flow to connected cars over the network (geographically) and over a scheduling time horizon (timely), and is capable of reducing the negative impact of OTA file updates on overall wireless network performance. This schedule is created based upon historical statistics associated with connected car driving patterns and simulations of connected car-specific OTA traffic over the network. By leveraging connected cars that connect to different cells at different times based upon driving patterns, the heuristic scheduling algorithm is effective in reducing OTA impact on the network.

  • Patent number: 11115065
    Abstract: A system that incorporates teachings of the subject disclosure may include, for example, adjusting a matching network utilizing a weighted tuning state determined according to an application of a first weighting factor to multiple tuning states based on enhancing performance associated with different types of operation, including transmit, receive, and duplex operation. A weighted reference metric is determined based on a second weighting factor and first, second and third reference metrics selected from first, second and third groups of reference metrics based on the enhancing performance associated with the different types of operation. The tuning is continued utilizing the weighted tuning state, responsive to a first determination that a first performance metric satisfies a first threshold according to a comparison of the first performance metric to the weighted reference metric. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 11064347
    Abstract: A mechanism of obtaining electronic subscriber identity module (eSIM) credentials from an inactive mobile communication device is described. This includes communicating, by an active mobile communication device, with an inactive mobile communication device via a peer-to-peer wireless interface. The active mobile communication device receives identification data for the eSIM credentials as stored in the inactive mobile communication device. The active mobile communication device transmits the identification data for the eSIM credentials to a subscription manager data preparation (SMDP+) server. The active mobile communication device also receives the eSIM credentials from the SMDP+ server.

  • Patent number: 11044591
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to technology for establishing communication between a remote device and a virtual machine on a computing node of the cloud-based services via the distributed network. The cloud-based services include multiple operating systems and one or more applications. In response to receiving an instruction from the remote device the virtual machine is accessed, where the virtual machine is associated with at least one of a user of the remote device and the remote device. When directed by an instruction from the remote device, the virtual machine identifies one of the operating systems in which to execute the one or more applications and transmits results, based on execution of the one or more applications by the virtual machine, to the remote device via the distributed network.

  • Patent number: 11044298
    Abstract: In one embodiment, change handling in mobile client applications may be facilitated by intermediate storage of changes using a data-provider-agnostic change object schema. An input on a mobile device that indicates a create, update, or delete action on a data object stored in a remote datastore is received. In response to receiving the input, a description of the action on the data object in a syntax that is agnostic as to type of remote service provider used for interacting with the remote datastore is created. The description of the action to a syntax of the first remote service provider is converted to compose a command configured to cause a first remote service provider to execute the action. The command is transmitted over a network to the first remote service provider to cause the action to be performed on the data object in the remote datastore.
