13993 results about "Access network" patented technology

An access network is a type of telecommunications network which connects subscribers to their immediate service provider. It is contrasted with the core network, (for example the Network Switching Subsystem in GSM) which connects local providers to one another. The access network may be further divided between feeder plant or distribution network, and drop plant or edge network.

Method and apparatus for accessing networks by a mobile device

A method and apparatus for accessing wireless carrier networks by mobile computing devices. An access client hosted by a mobile computing device accesses carrier networks using wireless access points. The access client uses an access point database to identify access points and carrier networks. The access client uses a methods database and a tokens database to access the carrier networks. The access client updates the access point database, the methods database, and the token database using an access server when the access client is operably coupled to a carrier network. The access client transmits user information to the carrier network. The carrier network uses the user information to authenticate the user and to generate session data while the user is accessing the carrier network. The carrier network transmits the session data to the access server. The access server uses the session data to generate billing information for the user. The access client also collects network performance data for individual access points and carrier networks. The access client transmits the network performance data to the access server. The access server aggregates network performance data from a plurality of access clients to generate quality of server reports for both individual access points and carrier networks. The access client further includes access point detection and evaluation features for use by a user in selecting access points available at a single location.

Usage data monitoring and communication between multiple devices

A system and method for by which real-time monitoring and communication of usage data is conducted between a set of N numbered of devices where N is and integer. According to an embodiment, a communication network provides a common core architecture in which the devices connected to the system are converged regardless of their access network requirements or functional capacity. The system has the capacity to monitor and analyze all the usage information of each device connected to the system in regards to content, identity, type, quality, quantity, time, status, activity level, and metadata associated with the functions and applications utilized on a device. The analysis is further based on information governing a subscriber's devices, preferences, and features held in a subscriber database integrated within the system. The analyzed usage data is further processed through a variety of applications in order to generate a response, such as; a report, an alarm, or tailored options for interacting with the generating device which is deliverable in any format within the capacity of the receiving device including all multimedia aspects and non-multimedia aspects. The system further communicates the response in real-time to any device within the set as designated by the subscriber. In another aspect of the invention, the analyzed usage data can be stored for on demand requests of a communication response from past analysis.

Communication system architecture and operating methodology providing a virtual neighborhood network

InactiveUS7142503B1Overcome bandwidth limitationIncreased peak bandwidth capacityError preventionFrequency-division multiplex detailsEnd-to-end encryptionTransceiver
A communication system (10) supports the provision of a plurality of dedicated communication resources (50–64), such as copper drops, RF links and optical fibers, to dedicated home-gateway devices (44–48) or distribution points (124). The communication resources (50–64) support broadband interconnection (104) between the dedicated home-gateway devices (44–48) or distribution points (124) and an access multiplexor (30) in a network (12). Each gateway device (44–48) or distribution point (124) generally includes a local RF transceiver (84) and associated control logic (80–82) that allows local communication (86) between gateway devices (44–48) and hence statistically multiplexed access (60–64, 89) to multiple communication resources, thereby providing increased bandwidth in uplink and/or downlink directions. With the control logic (80) operable to provide a routing and prioritisation/arbitration function, each gateway (44–48) is able to selectively engage use of supplemental, non-reserved communication resources usually associated with a dedicated ono-to-one connection between the access network (12) and at least one secondary gateway. Physical layer access to information routed via a secondary gateway within a virtual neighborhood network (90–92) comprising several gateways is restricted through an end-to-end encryption algorithm between an originating gateway and, at least, the access multilpexor (30).
