  • Patent number: 11954528
    Abstract: Technologies for dynamically sharing remote resources include a computing node that sends a resource request for remote resources to a remote computing node in response to a determination that additional resources are required by the computing node. The computing node configures a mapping of a local address space of the computing node to the remote resources of the remote computing node in response to sending the resource request. In response to generating an access to the local address, the computing node identifies the remote computing node based on the local address with the mapping of the local address space to the remote resources of the remote computing node and performs a resource access operation with the remote computing node over a network fabric. The remote computing node may be identified with system address decoders of a caching agent and a host fabric interface. Other embodiments are described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 11956331
    Abstract: A cache management subsystem (CMS) for a network having network gateways logically organized into network gateway (NG) subsets, each NG subset comprising redundant network gateways and each network gateway comprising a local cache configured to store cache entries corresponding to information requests from network users. The subsystem includes (i) a cache manager configured to synchronize certain cache entries between the network gateways of an NG subset and (ii) a CMS cache configured to store, for the NG subset, other cache entries that are not synchronized between the network gateways of the NG subset. In certain implementations, the cache manager synchronizes within NG subsets recent cache entries having relatively frequent hits and the CMS cache stores recent cache entries having relatively infrequent hits, thereby increasing efficiencies if and when a redundant network gateway handles requests for a failed network gateway.

  • Patent number: 11782645
    Abstract: Logic may store data structures for two or more processors in memory such as cache, system management memory, protected memory, or other memory. Logic may compress the data structures to be stored in the memory. Logic may determine a reference data structure, store the reference data structure in the memory, determine a difference between a data structure for a second processor and the reference data structure, and store the difference in the memory. Logic may store the difference in the memory within a data structure such as a linked list or a bitmap. Logic may decompress the difference by combining the difference with the reference data structure. Logic may expand the useable data region to include cache in the two or more processors. Logic may instruct two or more processors to store their processor data structures in their respective caches and perform initialization with the processor data structures.

  • Patent number: 11785669
    Abstract: With advanced compute capabilities and growing convergence of wireless standards, it is desirable to run multiple wireless standards, e.g., 4G, 5G NR, and Wi-Fi, on a single signal processing system. In the present disclosure, two baseband processors are used with each processor dedicated for one type of signal processing, such as 5G or Wi-Fi. The two baseband processors are interlinked via a chip-to-chip interconnect link for ingress and egress data transfer between the two processors. These two processors share an Ethernet link for benefits including cost saving, reduction in overall chipset power, and reduced form factor of the enclosure. Application of the disclosed embodiments may realize concurrent 5G Fronthaul and Wi-Fi traffic processing on the same Ethernet link. Such an application may be applied to other related scenarios, including Ethernet link sharing for dual Wi-Fi baseband processors, and Ethernet link sharing for Wi-Fi and gNodeB deployments, etc.

  • Patent number: 11750891
    Abstract: A method of selective pre-caching content fragments is disclosed. The method comprises receiving and analyzing, by an analytics engine, environment data pertaining to a wireless communication device and, based on the analyzing and based on a media presentation response, determining, by a pre-cache manager, an amount of fragments to provide to the wireless communication device for pre-caching to enable playback of the content at a certain quality. The method also comprises selecting, by the pre-cache manager, a subset of fragments of the content based on the determined amount of fragments and sending, by the computer system, the subset of fragments to the wireless communication device. The wireless communication device pre-caches the subset of fragments and presents the content using the cached subset of fragments and remaining fragments received from a content delivery network. The method further comprises receiving, by the analytics engine, playback data from the content delivery network.
