    Abstract: An approach for detecting anomalous flows in a network using header field entropy. This can be useful in detecting anomalous or malicious traffic that may attempt to “hide” or inject itself into legitimate flows. A malicious endpoint might attempt to send a control message in underutilized header fields or might try to inject illegitimate data into a legitimate flow. These illegitimate flows will likely demonstrate header field entropy that is higher than legitimate flows. Detecting anomalous flows using header field entropy can help detect malicious endpoints.

  • Patent number: 10461781
    Abstract: For some applications such as high-speed communication over short-reach links, the complexity and associated high latency provided by existing modulators may be unsuitable. According to an aspect, the present disclosure provides a modulator that can reduce latency for applications such as 40 G/100 G communication over copper cables or SMF. The modulator has a symbol mapper for mapping a bit stream into symbols, and a multi-level encoder including an inner encoder and an outer encoder for encoding only a portion of the bit stream. In some implementations, the multi-level encoder is configured such that an information block size of the inner encoder is small and matches a field size of the outer encoder. Therefore, components that would be used to accommodate larger block sizes can be omitted. The effect is that complexity and latency can be reduced. According to another aspect, the present disclosure provides a demodulator that is complementary to the modulator.

    Abstract: The present technology relates to a data processing device and a data processing method which can ensure high communication quality in data transmission using LDPC codes. In group-wise interleaving, an LDPC code having a code length N of 64800 bits and a coding rate r of 9/15 is interleaved in a unit of a bit group of 360 bits. In group-wise deinterleaving, a sequence of bit groups of the LDPC code which has been subjected to the group-wise interleaving is returned to an original sequence. The present technology can be applied to, for example, a case in which data transmission is performed using LDPC codes.

  • Patent number: 10341052
    Abstract: Embodiments of the application provide a method and device for polar code rate matching in a wireless communication network. A device of the network receives a bit sequence of K information bits. The device polar codes the bit sequence to obtain N encoded bits. The device interleaves the encoded bits to obtain N interleaved bits and then stores the N interleaved bits into cyclic cache. The device sequentially outputs M bits of the N interleaved bits from the cyclic cache according to a rate matching manner, wherein the rate matching manner is one of shortening, puncturing or repetition. When the rate matching manner is puncturing, the (N?M+1)th bit to the Nth bit of the interleaved bit sequence are output from the cyclic cache.

  • Patent number: 10325605
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for updating state data of an audio decoder for packet loss concealment (PLC). A methodology implementing the techniques according to an embodiment includes decoding encoded bits in a sequence of audio packets. A decoder history buffer stores the encoded bits and decimated state data associated with the decoding of those bits. The decimation factor of the state data is based on a down-sampling rate of the decoder. The method further includes performing PLC for an invalid audio packet using concealment samples from a PLC history buffer. The state of the audio decoder is updated from the decoder history buffer, based on timing associated with the concealment samples. The method further includes re-decoding the stored encoded bits associated with the updated state data, to further update the state of the audio decoder for subsequent decoding of a valid audio packet following the invalid audio packet.

  • Patent number: 10312936
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for operating a communication system comprising three or more communication transceivers. In illustrative embodiments, multiple different cyclic redundancy check (CRC) generation schemes are maintained. Each CRC generation scheme corresponds to a unique CRC residual value. A CRC value generated using one of the CRC generation schemes is placed in a data packet to be transmitted. The chosen CRC generation scheme reflects which one or more transceivers are intended recipients of the data packet. When a data packet is received by a transceiver, a CRC residual value is calculated based on the CRC value contained in the received data packet. The calculated CRC residual value is compared against a list of one or more valid CRC residual values for that particular transceiver. If the calculated CRC value matches one of the listed valid CRC residual values, the data packet is accepted, otherwise it is rejected.

    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention provide an apparatus and method for a coherent, efficient, and configurable cyclic check redundancy retry implementation for synchronous dynamic random access memory. The process includes storing write commands as groups of bursts in a storage location where those commands are stored at least until a time frame has passed for receiving a corresponding cyclic redundancy check failure message. In some embodiments, the process includes retrying corresponding groups of bursts after receiving a failure message where retried groups of bursts are given priority over other memory access commands. In some embodiments, when a read command is received corresponding to a write command that is not beyond the relevant time frame the read command will also be held back from execution until the corresponding time frame has passed without notification of cyclic redundancy check value failure.
