  • Patent number: 11343819
    Abstract: Information handling systems and methods for deploying and managing mobile virtual network operators (MVNOs) utilize a MVNO provisioning agent for communicating to a direct access manager resource requests associated with a Radio Access Network (RAN) in a network service provider (NSP). The direct access manager uses the resource requests to allocate resources in one or more RANs. The MVNO provisioning agent RAN receives endpoint information and a confirmation from the direct access manager regarding the allocated resources and passes the information to a MVNO deploying agent that deploys a customized MVNO Evolved Packet Core (EPC) in an EPC container. An MVNO association agent initiates a connection between RAN MVNO agents and the MVNO EPC to connect the deployed MNVO with the NSP, such that resource parameters may be communicated, e.g., in one or more control planes, from the MVNO EPC to the RAN MVNO agent(s) to control the allocated resources.

  • Patent number: 11343733
    Abstract: A system for delaying or inhibiting data is provided in order to shorten the time required for a reselection process from a first communication protocol to a second communication protocol. Reselection from the first communication protocol to the second communication protocol (e.g., 3G to 4G) requires a period of time without data transfers to allow the reselection to complete. The system delays or inhibits data transfers on the mobile device until the reselection process completes or the mobile device is idle for a predetermined length of time. In an embodiment, the system can buffer outgoing data and then send the data once the reselection has completed. In other embodiments, the system can drop packet sessions or ignore incoming packet pages. In another embodiment, the system can delay or inhibit data based on the priority of the data.

  • Patent number: 11323926
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method for automatically adding and/or deleting frequency relations in cells of a wireless communication network may include collecting a first list of frequencies broadcasted by a cell, neighboring co-site cells of the cell, and neighboring cells surrounding the cell. The method may further include collecting a second list of frequencies for defined frequency relations of the cell, and comparing the first list and the second list to determine if the second list is missing any of the frequencies of the first list and if the second list includes extra frequencies not present in the first list. The method may further include communicating a request to add frequency relations corresponding to any missing frequencies to the defined frequency relations of the cell, and communicating a request to delete frequency relations corresponding to any extra frequencies from the defined frequency relations of the cell.

  • Patent number: 11324061
    Abstract: Deterioration of communication is prevented in a communication apparatus, in which an infrastructure mode and a P2P mode are independently and concurrently executable, according to an embodiment of the present invention. Hence, in a case where the communication apparatus is in a state in which a first mode of executing wireless communication with a communication partner apparatus via an external access point and a second mode of executing wireless communication with an external apparatus without using the external access point are concurrently executable, the following selection is made. That is, a first channel width which is not accompanied by network detection processing is selected.
