  • Patent number: 11947640
    Abstract: A mobile device configured for communication with a multi-channel, operating-system (OS)-agnostic application programming interface (API) is provided. The API is configured to provide generic access to an OS-agnostic-device API output. The API may be coupled to a library of user credentials, and a library of data. The data provides information for one or more responses to a request from the user. The device may include an OS-based application and a translator. The translator translates communications between the OS-based application and said OS-agnostic API. The translator may convert an OS-compliant message header to a generic message header and to convert a generic message header to an OS-compliant message header. The OS-agnostic API may receive a communication initiation from the device. The device may be associated with a first channel. The API may request and receive 1) user credentials associated with the device and 2) data, authenticate the user credentials, and pull the data.

  • Patent number: 11546770
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and storage media for delivering radio applications to reconfigurable radio equipment (RE) for installation and implementation are described. In embodiments, an RE may transmit a request for a radio application (RA) to a RadioApp Store. The RE may receive the requested RA from the RadioApp Store when the RA is verified as being compatible with the RE and when implementation of the RA by the RE is authorized by a Declaration of Conformity (DoC) associated with the RE and/or the RA. The RE may install the RA when the DoC authorizes installation of the RA based on one or more other RAs implemented by the RE. Other embodiments may be described and/or claimed.

  • Patent number: 11528310
    Abstract: Methods, systems, media devices, and non-transitory, machine-readable media to facilitate asynchronous wireless media transfer are disclosed. A request for video service from a content provider system via a wireless network may be received. A media device may be configured to provide an asynchronous session for subsequent video content transfer. The configuring may utilize a network layer and a transport layer without utilizing a presentation layer and an application layer. Specifications of asynchronous session parameters may be created to define delivery operations with the asynchronous session. An encrypted token, corresponding to the specifications, may be created. Opening of the asynchronous session may be requested by transmitting the encrypted token to the content provider system from the transport layer. At the session layer, the asynchronous session may be started for video content delivery in accordance with the specifications of the asynchronous session parameters.

  • Patent number: 11398947
    Abstract: A communication interface and a device control, management and monitoring system are provided to enable the networking of and communication between a multiple devices operating under different protocols. The communication interface may act as a translator or protocol converter that reformats transmissions from one protocol to another based on protocol compatibility between the recipient and transmitting devices. The device control and monitoring system may store predefined rules that are triggered when specified conditions associated with the networked devices are detected. The rules may specify an action to take such as transmitting a discount offer to a user or turning off a light. According to one or more arrangements, the communication interface may act as an intermediary between the networked devices and the device control system so that the device control system is not required to understand or be compatible with the various other protocols used by the networked devices.
