  • Patent number: 10291512
    Abstract: In one embodiment, path routing in a node fabric of an information-centric network (ICN) includes transmitting a request from a source application to an upstream node via node faces of nodes in the node fabric along a path encoded in a Path Steering Value (PSV); and receiving at the source application from the upstream node a reply that travels along a return path encoded in the PSV. The PSV is generated by pairwise encoding pairs of node faces successively traversed by the reply and is represented by a deterministically decodable pairing function. Node face identifiers can be deterministically, i.e., uniquely, decoded from the PSV. The deterministically decodable pairing function is selected from a Cantor function, a Hopcroft and Ullman variant of the Cantor function, Hilbert curve algorithm, Morton code, and a bitwise pairing function.

A system and method can alleviate this bottleneck point by ensuring a virtual machine retains a plurality of addresses after migration. The system and method can further allow for each host node within the cloud environment to be associated with a local cache that virtual machines can utilize when re-establishing communication with a migrated virtual machine.

  • Patent number: 10198716
    Abstract: One or more techniques and/or systems are disclosed for providing awareness of user availability. A user may activate a device, and a request to manage an availability status can be sent from the device to a communication service. The communication service may resultantly set up monitoring of the user status, and the availability status of the user can be set to available. If an active status update is not received from the user device, the availability status of the user can be changed from available to away. If an active status update for the user continues not to be received (e.g., for a few hours) and/or device connectivity seems lost, the availability status of the user can be changed from away to offline. This can be done in a resource/power efficient manner by not requiring continual execution of an associated application and/or continual network connectivity of the device.

  • Patent number: 10193788
    Abstract: A network having a nodal architecture consisting of a child/parent familial structure formed by a parenting process which creates a structure relative to each node, with descendants below, siblings beside, and a parent above. In this network, a one-to-many relationship exists from the perspective of an entity that is an ancestor to multiple descendants. Thus, a parent may have many children, who each may have multiple children themselves, but each node will only have one parent. Data packets are routed to destination nodes by propagating from one node to the next via the tree structure.

  • Patent number: 10187357
    Abstract: A device of a public communication network initiates an action at a destination UE device of a private communication network by transmitting an action request message to a translating device that has a network/logical connection to both networks. The action request message contains security credentials of the initiating device, but does not contain a network address of the destination UE device. The translating device uses the security credentials of the initiating device contained in the action request message to determine a network address of the private network corresponding to the desired destination UE device. The security credentials may also be used to establish a secure connection from the initiating device. The translating device forwards the action request message to the desired destination device at the address associated with the initiator-device security credentials that it received in the action request message. The translating device may be a publish-subscribe broker.

  • Patent number: 10178021
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for organizing data channels and processing hosts included in a system into clusters. A cluster management service may receive data from a steam of data and may route the data to a cluster associated with the data stream. A data channel routing service included in the cluster may route the data to the set of processing hosts included in the cluster through multiple data channels included in the cluster. In some instances, the data channel routing service may use any of the data channels to send data to the set of processing hosts. Because incoming data may be distributed among multiple data channels, the cluster may experience less congestion. Further, the system may also process the stream of data using the same processing hosts by routing the stream of data to the same cluster, thereby avoiding split processing of the data stream.
