Method and identifying a threatening network


A system and method for identifying a threatening network is provided. The system comprises a network movement before/after algorithm that provides a graphical plot of changes in networks' communications activity from before to after a key event occurs, so that an analyst is able to identify anomalous behavior; a network progression algorithm that provides a graphical plot to analyze behavior in small increments of time without specification or emphasis upon a particular event, so that the analyst is able to see a trend in behavioral changes; a statistical network anomaly ranking algorithm that provides as output a ranked list of the networks; and an anomaly trend graphs algorithm that analyzes and visualizes the networks' anomaly scores over time, so that the analyst is able to see which networks are consistently suspicious, which networks accumulate more suspiciousness in response to an event, and which networks are trending toward more suspiciousness..

Systems and methods for managing excess optical capacity and margin in optical networks


A method, a network element, and a network include determining excess margin relative to margin needed to insure performance at a nominal guaranteed rate associated with a flexible optical modem configured to communicate over an optical link; causing the flexible optical modem to consume most or all of the excess margin, wherein the capacity increased above the nominal guaranteed rate includes excess capacity; and mapping the excess capacity to one or more logical interfaces for use by a management system, management plane, and/or control plane. The logical interfaces can advantageously be used by the management system, management plane, and/or control plane as one of restoration bandwidth or short-lived bandwidth-on-demand (bod) connections, such as sub-network connections (sncs) or label switched paths (lsps)..

Systems and methods for mapping virtual radio instances into physical volumes of coherence in distributed antenna wireless systems


Systems and methods are described for mapping virtual radio instances (vris) into physical volumes of coherencein a multiple antenna system (mas) with multi-user (mu) transmissions (“mu-mas”). These mapping methods enable communications through simultaneous non-interfering data streams in the same frequency band between the mu-mas and multiple users, within their own volume of coherence.
