  • Patent number: 9414388
    Abstract: A wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) determines (1) whether the WTRU is transmitting as much scheduled data as allowed by a current Serving_Grant, (2) whether the WTRU has enough power to transmit at higher data rate, and (3) based on a same power offset as a currently selected E-DCH transport format combination (E-TFC), whether total E-DCH buffer status (TEBS) would require more than predetermined period to be transmitted with the current Serving_Grant.times.a ratio of active processes to a total number of processes. If criteria (1)-(3) are met, the WTRU sets the happy bit to “unhappy.” If MAC-i/is is configured, the WTRU evaluates criteria (2) by identifying an E-TFC that has a transport block size at least x bits larger than a transport block size of the currently selected E-TFC, and determining whether the identified E-TFC is supported based on a same power offset as the currently selected E-TFC.

  • Patent number: 9350488
    Abstract: Data objects are delivered over a packet-switched network and receivers receive encoded symbols, such as repair symbols, broadcast or multicast, with sufficient information to form requests for additional symbols as needed based on what source symbols or sub-symbols are needed or missing. The requests can be made in a unicast or request fashion. Requesting and broadcasting might be done by different entities. A broadcast server can generate and store repair symbols while a source server can store content in source form. A request can be a unicast HTTP byte-range request, such as a URL, starting position and length. Requests might be aligned with starting positions of files. A receiver can calculate starting and ending byte positions of symbols or sub-symbols in a file and get indications that conventional HTTP servers are usable for file repair. Repair servers can request broadcast of repair data when byte-range requests from multiple receivers overlap.

  • Patent number: 9332442
    Abstract: A mobile device which is moved within this network can stay connected to the network. The network routes signals from client to client and from the Internet to client using transceivers. The transceivers in the relay can be a software radio and can be software controlled. Streams of bits are transferred from a source to a destination in a wireless network. Portions of these streams of bits can be transferred between these software radios to distribute signals in the network. In addition, servers can be located within the network to provide local and immediate high bandwidth information. As the bandwidth increases, the range of the wireless signal typically decreases. Thus, inserting relays or multiple transceivers can be used to maintain high bandwidth coverage over a large networking range.

  • Patent number: 9306794
    Abstract: A mechanism for identifying long-lived large flows in a communication network is disclosed in which packets transmitted through ports of a switching device or router are continuously examined. As new flows are recognized, their flow definition information is processed through a hashing table that uses a predetermined number of hash stages each having a pre-selected number of hash buckets. Each hash bucket has a counter that is incremented each time flow definition information ends up in the bucket. At the same time as counters are incremented, they are compared against a threshold number. If the bucket counters for all the hash stages exceed this threshold number, the flow is identified as a long-lived large flow and stored as such in a flow table.

  • Patent number: 9270609
    Abstract: A system and method for sharing a WAN TCP tunnel between multiple flows without having head of the line blocking problem is disclosed. When a complete but out of order PDU is stuck behind an incomplete PDU in a TCP tunnel, the complete but out of order PDU is removed from the tunnel. To do that, first the boundaries of the PDUs of the different flows are preserved and the TCP receive window advertisement is increased. The receive window is opened when initially receiving out-of-order data. As out-of-order complete PDUs are pulled out of the receive queue, to address double counting, place holders are used in the receive queue to indicate data that was in the queue. As out-of-order data PDUs are pulled out of the queue the window advertisement is increased. This keeps the sending side from running out of TX window and stopping transmission of new data.

  • Patent number: 9240952
    Abstract: During communication of a large data message from a client application to a server application, requirements to communicate smaller control messages can arise. To facilitate timely communication of control messages, a client application may include a chunking module that divides a data message into chunks that can be sent as a sequence of individual data message packets. When a control message needs to be sent, the sequence of data message packets can be interrupted to send a control message packet. At the server application, the sequence of message packets is processed so that data message packets are appended to a data message and control messages are extracted for immediate processing.

  • Patent number: 9231908
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject matter described herein relate to symmetric routing to a private network. In aspects, a remote client may try to connect to an entity of a private network using a non-routable network address. Upon detecting that connectivity is not established or not possible via a given network address, the client may obtain network data associated with a gateway that provides access to the private network and create a virtual interface where the gateway is the next-hop router. After creating the virtual interface, the client may communicate with entities of the private network using the virtual interface of the client. By sending traffic through the virtual interface with a source address having a prefix associated with the gateway, the client may ensure that traffic sent to and from the private network traverses the gateway.

  • Patent number: 9223618
    Abstract: A multi-threaded processor may support efficient pattern matching techniques. An input data buffer may be provided, which may be shared between a fast path and a slow path. The processor may retire the data units in the input data buffer that is not required and thus avoids copying the data unit used by the slow path. The data management and the execution efficiency may be enhanced as multiple threads may be created to verify potential pattern matches in the input data stream. Also, the threads, which may stall may exit the execution units allowing other threads to run. Further, the problem of state explosion may be avoided by allowing the creation of parallel threads, using the fork instruction, in the slow path.
