File transfer is the transmission of a computer file through a communication channel from one computer system to another. Typically, file transfer is mediated by a communications protocol. In the history of computing, numerous file transfer protocols have been designed for different contexts.

Tiered contention multiple access (TCMA): a method for priority-based shared channel access

Quality of Service (QoS) support is provided by means of a Tiered Contention Multiple Access (TCMA) distributed medium access protocol that schedules transmission of different types of traffic based on their service quality specifications. In one embodiment, a wireless station is supplied with data from a source having a lower QoS priority QoS(A), such as file transfer data. Another wireless station is supplied with data from a source having a higher QoS priority QoS(B), such as voice and video data. Each wireless station can determine the urgency class of its pending packets according to a scheduling algorithm. For example file transfer data is assigned lower urgency class and voice and video data is assigned higher urgency class. There are several urgency classes which indicate the desired ordering. Pending packets in a given urgency class are transmitted before transmitting packets of a lower urgency class by relying on class-differentiated urgency arbitration times (UATs), which are the idle time intervals required before the random backoff counter is decreased. In another embodiment packets are reclassified in real time with a scheduling algorithm that adjusts the class assigned to packets based on observed performance parameters and according to negotiated QoS-based requirements. Further, for packets assigned the same arbitration time, additional differentiation into more urgency classes is achieved in terms of the contention resolution mechanism employed, thus yielding hybrid packet prioritization methods. An Enhanced DCF Parameter Set is contained in a control packet sent by the AP to the associated stations, which contains class differentiated parameter values necessary to support the TCMA. These parameters can be changed based on different algorithms to support call admission and flow control functions and to meet the requirements of service level agreements.

Methods for rights enabled peer-to-peer networking

The present invention relates to digital rights management. In one embodiment, persons, processes, and/or computers and appliances locate, share, publish, retrieve, and use all kinds of digital information that has been protected using digital rights management technologies. Rights management includes securely associating rules for authorized use with the digital information. Rules and/or digital information may be encapsulated in a cryptographically secure data structure or "container" ("CSC") to protect against unauthorized use, to ensure secrecy, to maintain integrity, and to force the use of a rights management system to access the protected information. Attributes or metadata information describing at least some of the rules ("rules-metadata information") and optionally any associated rule parameter data with respect to the protected information are created. This rules-metadata information may be organized, structure, encoded, and/or presented using a self-defining data structure such as those created using Extensible Markup Language (XML). In one embodiment, the XML-encoded rules-metadata information is also made available unencrypted, in plain text, to facilitate P2P search and file transfer. Having at least some of the rules-metadata information outside or external to a CSC allows greater flexibility in searching based at least in part upon the rules-metadata information. Some embodiments may hold the rules-metadata information in a separate CSC. Putting the rules-metadata information in a separate CSC more easily allows authentication and maintains the integrity of the rules-metadata information. In another embodiment, the rules metadata may be in an unencrypted portion of a CSC itself or concatenated with a CSC in a single file.

Remote check deposit

InactiveUS20060242062A1Easy to optimizeConvenient truncationFinancePayment circuitsDocumentation procedureSubstitute check
In accordance with the principles of the present invention, a system is provided for capturing a customer deposit at their place of business, converting the Magnetic Ink Character Recognition (MICR) data encoded documents into an image with an associated data file, and electronically transmit the data to a financial institution. The system allows the customer to scan each MICR encoded check that is to deposited with their financial institution, which captures financial institution routing information and customer account information. The associated image the physical check can be franked denoting the check has been electronically processed to avoid further processing. The resulting image and account data can then be processed by the financial institution. There are three options for encoding the amount: 1) the customer enters each amount after scanning the item prior to sending to the financial institution; 2) the financial institution enters the amount of each item after receiving the file from the customer; and 3) the amount field(s) are scanned and the amount is automatically entered. The system allows for both 1) online (Internet) capture of the MICR data and the associated image or 2) offline capture and the subsequent importing of the image and MICR data for transmission to the financial institution via the Internet. The financial institution can review the items captured online, and repair any item that is incorrect. The financial institution can use the system to print substitute checks that confirm to ANSI X9.90 for processing or deliver an electronic file in ANSI X9.37 format to any check processing system. The system includes secure transport over Internet connections for file transfer and dual control security to reduce fraudulent transactions from being initiated by the customer.

Method and system for redeeming product marketing rebates

Abstract of the Disclosure A system and method for processing product marketing rebate claims submitted by a consumer in satisfaction of a rebate offer, the consumer having purchased designated products in a qualified transaction recorded by a point-of-sale data processing and storage system that issues a receipt containing a corresponding transaction serial number. The method comprises providing a designated site of a computer information network and accessible by the consumer, and receiving a rebate claim on the designated site. The rebate claim comprises (i) the transaction serial number corresponding to the qualified transaction, and (ii) identifying information corresponding to the consumer. The transaction serial number and the identifying information is stored as a stored data record. An electronic file transfer is received from the point-of-sale data processing and storage system comprising purchase data records, each record comprising the list of products purchased and the transaction serial number for a qualified transaction in which at least one designated product was purchased. Each stored data record is associated with a purchase data record having an identical serial number, and the records are processed to validate the rebate claim. Finally, the value of the rebate offer is transferred to the consumer. Consumer access by the designated site may be via the global computer information network or by telephone, and may also optionally integrate paper-based and smart/credit/debit-card-based rebate claims. A system for performing the above method is also claimed.
