S Jamaloddin Golestani, Rajeev Rastogi, Mark Anthony Smith: Allocation of channels to wireless LANs. Lucent Technologies, March 20, 2007: US07194271 (1 worldwide citation)

Channels are allocated to one or more cells within a wireless LAN (WLAN) without causing unacceptable interference. The allocation involves dividing an allocation time period into frames, each frame having a substantially short duration, and then allocating one or more channels to one or more WLAN c ...

S Jamaloddin Golestani, Rajeev Rastogi, Mark Anthony Smith: Computing optimal channel allocations using decomposition methods and related devices. Alcatel Lucent USA, April 21, 2009: US07522566

By decomposing (i.e., dividing) an interference graph into subgraphs, it becomes feasible to compute close approximations of an optimal channel allocation scheme within a reasonable amount of time. The channel allocation scheme may be used to allocate specific channels to access points (APs) in a wi ...

Suryanarayan Perinkulam, Mark Anthony Smith: Methods and systems for computing the quality of an MPEG-2 video stream. Alcatel Lucent, Capitol Patent & Trademark Law Firm PLLC, August 25, 2015: US09118919

Novel “loss rate” metrics are presented that can be used to indicate the quality of a video stream. These metrics may be determined using a simplified method or by a more sophisticated method, the latter method applying different “weights” (i.e., adjustments) to error computations based on the type ...

S Jamaloddin Golestani, Rajeev Rastogi, Mark Anthony Smith: Methods and devices for approximating optimal channel allocations. Harness Dickey & Pierce, March 30, 2006: US20060067267-A1

Channels are allocated to access points (APs) within a wireless, local area network (WLAN) in a reasonable time period using approximation methods. One approximation method guarantees channel allocations will be no less than ⅙ of an optimal channel allocation scheme provided the interference pattern ...

Randeep S Bhatia, Hyunseok Chang, Mark Anthony Smith: Policy controlled traffic offload via content smart-loading. August 18, 2011: US20110202646-A1

An example method includes receiving at a user device a policy from a communication network node, and loading the user device with content data based on the policy. The policy specifies a rule set and a corresponding action to undertake in the event of a condition satisfying the rule set and may be ...
