  • Patent number: 10834159
    Abstract: Standardized hot-pluggable transceiving unit implementing a cloud gateway functionality. The transceiving unit receives a source video IP flow. At least one processing unit in the housing executes a HTTP client and a conversion function. The HTTP client establishes a connection with a HTTP server hosted by a cloud video server, and receives the source video IP flow from the HTTP server of the cloud video server via the first connector. The source video IP flow uses one of the HTTP or the HTTPS protocol. The conversion function generates a video stream based on the source video IP flow, and the video stream is outputted by the transceiving unit. Alternatively, the transceiving unit receives a source video stream converted in a video IP flow by the conversion function, and the HTTP client uploads the video IP flow to the HTTP server of the cloud video server.

  • Patent number: 10806998
    Abstract: Systems and methods for exchanging information in a distributed computing system implementing an interactive application, such as a location-based parallel reality game, are provided. In particular, the subject matter of the present disclosure provides an alternative approach for providing and processing return results from a remote procedure call (RPC) by which remote computing systems (e.g. a game server and a remote client) send requests and responses to one another. Rather than providing a single return result in response to a single request as in typical remote procedure calls, information about updates to the state of the interactive application, such as updates to game status, can be returned via side channels which are handled generically while passing the main return result of the invoked service directly back to the caller.

  • Patent number: 10805433
    Abstract: A system and approach that may provide a protocol independent environment to configure an ASC (application specific control) device in, for example, a heating, ventilation and air conditioning system. By using this system and approach, a user may reuse a device configuration already done for a device of one protocol in a device of another protocol without being required to reconfigure the latter device from scratch. This way may help a user to reduce the total setup time required to fully configure a device. The reduction may be done by simply exporting the configuration information from the first device and then importing the configuration information into the second device, where the internal protocol specific details can be handled internally by a tool. Thus, a user need not bother with the details that are in the background of the moving a configuration among devices of different protocols.

  • Patent number: 10797731
    Abstract: A first base station may be configured as an auxiliary receiver for a data stream sent on an uplink from a source device to a second base station. The second base station may be a base station that is engaged in conventional communications with the source device on uplink and downlink channels using a selected protocol. The first base station may be used to provide extra data redundancy/QoS for a data stream sent from the source device to a destination device through the second base station. The first base station may determine that it has available bandwidth and is able to serve as an auxiliary receiver. The first base station may be asked by the second base station to provide extra bandwidth when certain network conditions occur. The first base station may include a software defined radio (SDR) that may be configured to receive according to the selected protocol.
