(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Targeted News Service Targeted News Service ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 1 -- The following federal patents were awarded to inventors in New Hampshire.

*** Rockstar Consortium US Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 1 -- Rockstar Consortium US, Richardson, Texas, has been assigned a patent (8,363,548) developed by Osama Aboul-Magd, Kanata, Canada, and Bilel Jamoussi, Nashua, N.H., for a "method and system for packet discard precedence for video transport." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Discard precedence priority of packets carrying an encoded video stream in a packet network is determined based on priority information included in the encoded video stream. A video streamer segments an encoded video stream and encapsulates the segment in an Internet Protocol (IP) packet. Priority information associated with the IP packet is determined based on at least one priority indicator associated with the segment that was included in the encoded video stream. Alternately, priority information associated with an Ethernet frame is determined based on at least one priority indicator associated with the segment that was included in the encoded video stream." The patent application was filed on Dec. 12, 2008 (12/333,835). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,363,548&OS=8,363,548&RS=8,363,548 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.


*** Avaya Technology Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 1 -- Avaya Technology, Basking Ridge, N.J., has been assigned a patent (8,363,573) developed by Sean Samuel Butler Moore, Hollis, N.H., for a "method for ringcasting with improved reliability." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method of ringcasting with improved reliability, in which a participant who is the source of content saves the signal in which the content is found, and compares received signals with the signal in which the content is found to ensure that the content has made it completely around the ring. If any particular piece of the content does not complete the ring, the content is re-transmitted from the participant around the ring. Sequence indices within the signal informs each participant of the sequence in which any particular piece of content is to be received so that, even if any particular piece of content is received out of order, it will be replaced in its proper sequence by a recipient." The patent application was filed on Jan. 29, 2008 (12/011,709). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,363,573&OS=8,363,573&RS=8,363,573 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.

*** Cisco Technology Assigned Patent for Combined Gateway for Network Communications ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 1 -- Cisco Technology, San Jose, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,363,664) developed by Rajesh Ramankutty, Nashua, N.H., Rajesh Velandy, Nashua, N.H., and Sanil Kumar Puthiyandyil, Nashua, N.H., for a "combined gateway for network communications." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The functionalities of one or more of a mobility management entity (MME), serving gateway (SGW), and packet data network gateway (PGW) can be provided in a single device on the network. In the access gateway different functional elements are implemented as services and they can be configured on the same device. For example, the SGW and PGW can be configured on the same device. When user equipment UE connects from a home network, it is possible for the MME to choose the same SGW and PGW. This combined SGW and PGW can implement a single session for the UE, thereby capable of providing a savings in resources, allowing additional capacity, and allowing reduced latency and increased throughput because fewer hops are made on the network. This session acts as a SGW on the ingress side and a PGW on the egress side of the access gateway." The patent application was filed on Aug. 18, 2009 (12/543,298). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,363,664&OS=8,363,664&RS=8,363,664 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.
