  • Patent number: 11457370
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for performing a live upgrade process of one or more devices (e.g., access points (APs), etc.) in a large scale network environment. For example, the system can use neighbor path loss data between the APs. The neighbor path loss data may identify the signal strength between two points as an indication of the ability to transmit power and receive power from the individual APs. When the ability to transmit and receive power is present in one AP is unavailable the user device may connect to a second AP to avoid losing connectivity. This neighbor path loss data may be utilized to perform a live upgrade process of APs in parallel at multiple locations of the user site.

  • Patent number: 11381941
    Abstract: A method is performed by a control center that resides in a home network. Upon receiving, from access networks, attach requests from user equipments (UEs) when the UEs attempt to connect to the access networks, the control center computes a baseline attach failure rate for the attach requests. The control center initially sets a billing type for a UE of a subscriber to usage based billing. Upon receiving, from the access networks, attach requests from the UE when the UE attempts to connect to the access networks, the control center computes an individual attach failure rate for fulfilling the attach requests from the UE. The control center determines whether the individual attach failure rate for the UE exceeds the baseline attach failure rate. When the individual attach failure rate exceeds the baseline attach failure rate, the control center automatically switches the billing type for the UE to flat rate billing.

  • Patent number: 11323922
    Abstract: When a user equipment is roaming in a visited network, mid-call handover from VoWiFi to VoLTE is controlled by policies enforced in the user equipment and the home network. An inter-operator policy and a subscription policy are stored in the home network and a user equipment policy is stored in the user equipment. The roaming user equipment registers in a visited network. Later, when mid-call handover to VoLTE on the visited network is desired, and also permitted by its user equipment policy, the user equipment sends a request containing a call-specific identifier which the responsible network entity in the home network compares with the registered handover parameter having regard to the inter-operator and subscription policies. If compliance with the policies is found, then the mid-call handover is proceeded with.
