Transfer Speed Regulating Patents (Class 709/233)
  • Patent number: 11445243
    Abstract: Correcting encode bit rate errors developed by a hardware encoder with an outer software rate adjustment loop. The rate adjustment loop maintains a VBV (video buffering verifier) buffer model. When VBV buffer fullness is over a threshold, the rate adjustment loop drops frames. If below the threshold, periodically a rate adjustment analysis performed. If a number of frames above a threshold have been dropped, the hardware encoder bit rate is decreased. A leaky bucket is checked to determine in bits and out bits. If the number of in bits exceeds the number of out bits times a multiplier, the hardware encoder bit rate is decreased. If the number of in bits times a multiplier is less than the number of out bits, the hardware encoder bit rate is increased. Dropping frames on buffer condition provides shorter term correction and adjustment of the hardware encoder bit rate provides longer term correction.

  • Patent number: 11438299
    Abstract: A private network device such as a security device is inserted in a private network using ARP spoofing, which includes sending periodic ARP packets from the private network device to a router and to client devices to ensure the private network device spoofing remains intact. The private network device determines when at least one of the one or more private network devices is inactive, such as by monitoring the network for activity between the devices and a router, and suspends sending the periodic ARP packets to the client devices when they are inactive.

  • Patent number: 10965707
    Abstract: Introduced here are security management platforms configured to identify, assess, and monitor organizational vulnerability to security threats. By monitoring netflow data regarding the traffic traversing the Internet, a security management platform can identify security threats that would otherwise go undetected. Such action can be performed instead of, or in addition to, monitoring netflow data regarding the traffic traversing a local network (also referred to as an “internal network”) associated with an organization under examination. Thus, rather than monitor the traffic leaving public-facing Internet Protocol (IP) addresses residing on the local network, the security management platform can instead monitor traffic traversing the Internet and then filter the traffic to identify flows originating from the local network, flows destined for the local network, or any combination thereof.

  • Patent number: 10965706
    Abstract: A computing device determines a peer group identifier and supplements netflow records with the peer group identifier. An authentication event block object is received that was sent to a first source window. The authentication event block object includes a user identifier, an IP address, and a peer group identifier. Members of the peer group are identified based on an expected network activity behavior. The user identifier and the peer group identifier are stored in association with the IP address in a cache. A netflow event block object sent to the first source window is received that includes a netflow packet IP address. Netflow data is parsed from the netflow event block object into a netflow record. When the stored IP address matches the netflow packet IP address, the netflow record is supplemented with the user identifier and the peer group identifier. The supplemented netflow record is output to summary data.

    Abstract: A profile optimizing method is provided for a downstream channel transmission of active subcarriers to user devices. The method includes steps of receiving channel measurement data from each user device for each subcarrier, calculating a maximum bit-loading value for each user device per subcarrier, grouping the user devices into a plurality of clusters based on a proximity of the maximum bit-loading values of a first user device to those of a second user device within the particular cluster, assigning each user device within the particular cluster to a single cluster profile. A plurality of single cluster profiles for the plurality of clusters forms a set of cluster profiles. The method further includes steps of determining a channel capacity ratio for the set of cluster profiles, and combining at least two single profiles of the set of cluster profiles into a coalesced profile pair.

  • Patent number: 10893309
    Abstract: A media player system is provided for receiving and processing a media program that uses a time interval interval to required to decode ND frames of the media program segment. The media system receives the requested media program segment, processes the segment and determines if the throughput of the media program differs from the desired presentation throughput by a tolerance amount. Both decoding and rendering performance are determined and used to determine presentation throughput, and to determine if heavier or lighter variants of the media program should be requested for subsequent media program segments.

  • Patent number: 10824559
    Abstract: A read request for a counter designated to be only cached in a global cache is received. The counter is excluded from being persisted in and retrieved from one or more primary data sources It is determined whether the counter has already been created in the global cache. If the counter has already been created in the global cache, the counter is created in the global cache with an initial counter value while continually excluding the counter from being persisted in and retrieved from the one or more primary data sources. The counter is cached with a time-to-live (TTL) time period. The time-to-live time period is to be renewed on each subsequent read request of the counter. The counter is temporally stored in the data object cache until the TTL time period lapses.

    Abstract: A method of signaling between Ethernet transceiver link partners along a link is disclosed. The link includes between one to four twisted pair channels. The method includes, in an offline mode of operation, autonegotiating between the link partners during an autonegotiation sequence. A number of active pairs out of the one to four pairs of twisted pair channels is then discovered. The discovering includes transmitting a discovery signal from a transmit end of the link on the active pairs, detecting the transmitted discovery signal at a receive end of the link, and identifying the active pairs based on the detecting. The link active pairs are then trained to train transceiver operating parameters with a training sequence of symbols. In an online mode of operation, the link is operated in a data transfer mode utilizing at least one of the identified active pairs.
