  • Patent number: 11323410
    Abstract: When a user equipment (UE) provides a new request to a serving gateway (S GW), the S GW augments domain name system (DNS) requests and provides them to a public DNS, with the augmentation providing indications of the requested function. The public DNS responds by providing the IP address of a simplified packet data network (PDN) gateway (P GW) close to the UE location. The P GW forwards communications to the nearest instance of an endpoint providing the requested service or function. In embodiments, some of the functions of the P GW are shifted to other devices in the mobile core, devices that are already local. The simplification of the P GW allows the P GW to be virtualized and moved to a general-purpose server location. Existing information present in the data path is used to provide encryption of portions of the General Packet Radio Services (GPRS) Tunneling Protocol (GTP) connection, allowing the location of the P GW to be optimized in a virtual server data center, as the data path is now secure.

  • Patent number: 11283775
    Abstract: Systems and methods for establishing secure remote connections to media devices establish a secure shell (SSH) connection between two machines which are located in two different private networks, such as between a remote debugging computer and a receiving device. The receiving device has a persistent outbound connection with a message server. The remote debugging computer connects to a relay manager and obtains a relay instance IP address and port. The relay manager then forwards the relay instance IP address and port to the receiving device via the message server. After receiving the connection request from the message server, the receiving device connects to the relay instance IP and port and waits for the input data. The remote debugging computer performs an SSH handshake and the receiving device directly authenticates the SSH connection.

  • Patent number: 11277407
    Abstract: Examples described relate to disabling of MAC address aging time for an IoT device on a network switch. In an example, in response to a device joining a network, a network switch in the network may determine a media access control (MAC) address of the device. The network switch may then send the MAC address to an authentication server. In response, the network switch may receive a Vendor Specific Attribute (VSA) associated with the MAC address from the authentication server. The VSA indicates that the MAC address relates to an IoT device. Based on the VSA, the network switch may recognize the MAC address of the device as a MAC address of the IoT device. In response to recognizing, the network switch may disable MAC address aging time for the MAC address of the IoT device on the network switch.
