  • Patent number: 12013684
    Abstract: Implementations are described herein for commissioning a device such as a distributed control node (DCN) for operation with a process automation system (PAS) using a portable setup device (PSD) and an “out-of-band” communication channel. In various implementations, static information conveyed by a passive data store of the DCN may be used to establish an out-of-band communication channel between the DCN and PSD. The out-of-band communication channel may be distinct from a process automation network through which the DCN is to be communicatively coupled with other process automation nodes of the PAS. The DCN may be commissioned to the process automation system by exchanging operational technology (OT) data between the DCN and the PSD via the out-of-band communication channel to enable the DCN to cooperate with one or more of the other process automation nodes on the process automation network to implement an at least partially automated process.

A call graph may include nodes corresponding to the network services and its dependencies, and may include an identifier corresponding to a part of the call path that has the anomaly. An inspection of the call graph allows software developers to readily recognize that their service depends on a potentially flawed software that may cause a service failure or outage.

  • Patent number: 11943328
    Abstract: A vehicular communication controller includes a microcontroller (MCU) located within a vehicle to generate, by a software component, a find service request to discover an offered service from one or more systems on a chip (SoC). The MCU may generate a service message packet that includes the find service request inserted into a payload of the find service message packet where the payload is bound to an automotive/embedded communication protocol. Using unicast or multicast, the find service message packet may be sent to one or more SoC receiving devices. The SoC receiving devices may deserialize the header and payload of the find service message packet to retrieve the find service request and generate a service directory message based on service metadata and publish a cloud event including a solicited response that is sent back to the software component.

  • Patent number: 11930369
    Abstract: The described technology is generally directed towards network slice pre-configuration for cellular communication systems, including 5G and subsequent generation cellular communication systems. Network equipment can be preconfigured to identify whether a network slice identifier included in a network communication belongs to a group of network slice identifiers. If so, the network equipment can process the network communication either according to a network slice rule that corresponds specifically to the network slice identifier, or according to a default group network slice rule for the group to which the network slice identifier belongs. Different groups of network slice identifiers can be associated with different sets of group network slice rules which can be arranged to reduce the work of setting up network slice identifiers in various network slicing scenarios.

  • Patent number: 11924189
    Abstract: Embodiments as disclosed provide systems and methods that use a local authenticator within a domain to provide a credential to access a resource of the domain to a non-local requestor. When a request is received from a non-local requestor at the domain the non-local requestor can be authenticated based on the request. The local authenticator can then be accessed to obtain a credential. This credential may be the same type of credential provided to members of the domain when they authenticate using the local authenticator. The credential is provided to the non-local requestor so the non-local requestor can access the resource of the domain using the credential and authentication of the non-local requestor with respect to these accesses can be accomplished using the local domain authenticator and the credential.
