  • Patent number: 10290371
    Abstract: A medical device system includes a first patient monitor having a proximity beacon that communicates compatibility information and a medical device associated with the same patient as the first patient monitor. The medical device includes a device proximity detector that detects a proximity beacon when the first patient monitor is within a predetermined proximity range of the medical device, and a device workflow module executable on a processor to receive compatibility information and determine whether the first patient monitor is a compatible device. If so, then a direct communication channel is established with the first patient monitor and a device workflow is identified that corresponds with a monitor workflow executable by the first patient monitor. The medical device then communicates with the first patient monitor via the direct communication channel to execute the identified device workflow until a termination condition is reached.

  • Patent number: 10291723
    Abstract: In storage networks (e.g., SAN and NAS), various reasons can arise for migrating an application layer communication session endpoint to a different host. To achieve scalability and robustness, the migration can be enacted externally and carried out at a middlebox at the transport layer. When a migration is triggered to migrate an application layer communication session endpoint from a host A to a host B, the middlebox coordinates network address translation with a transport protocol reset mechanism to switch the connection to host B and close the connection on host A with minimal disruption to the non-migrating application layer communication session endpoint using the connection. At the application layer, the non-migrating application layer communication session endpoint will initiate a new connection in response to detecting the reset, and retry any operation that was aborted as a result of the connection switch.

  • Patent number: 10244004
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide methods for providing a non-registering endpoint with non-registration services (such as the ability to make a call) in an IMS network without requiring the non-registering endpoint to register. A request for a non-registration service is received and processed by an entity in the IMS network that is configured to handle such requests. The entity requires information about the non-registering endpoint itself before it can process the request. Since the non-registering endpoint is part of the network, a Home Subscriber Server (HSS) knows some information about the non-registering endpoint, but can only provide this information to the entity if the non-registering endpoint is registered or being registered by the entity. Consequently, in embodiments, the entity makes it look like the non-registering endpoint is registering, in order for the entity to obtain the information from the HSS.

  • Patent number: 10237379
    Abstract: An example method for distributed service chaining is provided and includes receiving a packet belonging to a service chain in a distributed virtual switch (DVS) network environment, the packet includes a network service header (NSH) indicating a service path identifier identifying the service chain. The packet is provided to a virtual Ethernet module (VEM) connected to an agentless service node (SN) providing an edge service such as a server load balancer (SLB). The VEM associates a service path identifier corresponding to the service chain with a local identifier such as a virtual local area network (VLAN). The agentless SN returns the packet to the VEM for forwarding on the VLAN. Because the VLAN corresponds exactly to the service path and service chain, the packet is forwarded directly to the next node in the service chain. This can enable agentless SNs to efficiently provide a service chain for network traffic.

The system generates unique file directory storage locations within the cluster allowing for the separate binaries associated with each of the versions to be accurately distinguished from one another by a resource manager tool. The two versions are able to coexist within the same physical storage location inside the distributed computing cluster. Concurrent version installations within the same cluster are advantageous for testing and verifying a newer version before ultimately uninstalling the older version in that a seamless transition between versions is achievable with uninterrupted service.

  • Patent number: 10210009
    Abstract: A method of selecting a virtual machine (VM) on a mobile device within a wireless communication network based upon context of an incoming event. For example, a virtual intelligence engine can select a VM to handle an incoming phone call based upon the context of the phone call. If the phone call is work-related, then the virtual intelligence engine may select a first VM, while if the incoming phone call is a personal phone call, then the virtual intelligence engine may select a second VM different from the first VM. The VMs can utilize different operating systems.

  • Patent number: 10203974
    Abstract: A performance monitoring system is described herein that works with a hypervisor to reserve resources outside of a virtual machine to monitor performance of an application running within the virtual machine. The application receives the guaranteed amount of resources specified by the virtual machine's specifications, and the monitoring consumes resources not associated with the virtual machine. The application running in the virtual machine is already isolated by the hypervisor from the physical machine, and thus additional burdens on the physical machine that allow the hypervisor to continue meeting guarantees to the virtual machine will not impact application performance. The performance monitoring system provides instrumentation of deployed applications that information technology (IT) personnel can dynamically turn on and off without affecting the performance of the deployed application.
