 Method and  extending signaling in a wireless communication network patent thumbnailMethod and extending signaling in a wireless communication network
In one aspect, the teachings herein provide a new mechanism for signaling in a manner that makes advantageous use of preexisting identifiers that are defined for a communication network by an applicable communication standard or protocol according to a “standard” use, by temporarily repurposing one or more such identifiers for an alternate use differing from the standard use. For example, a network base station or other node knows or learns that a given wireless device operating in the network is compatible with the alternate use, selects a given one of the identifiers and temporarily repurposes its for an alternate use, e.g., where the alternate use provides a new signaling mechanism between the network and the compatible device.

Method and device for call playback in ringing state

The disclosure discloses a method and device for call playback in a ringing state. The method includes that: after forwarding a call request initiated by a user terminal, and when receiving a first temporary response message returned by a called party, an access transfer control functionality (atcf) applies for a media resource for a first playback media and performs playback on the first playback media, wherein the first temporary response message carries description information about the first playback media; when receiving an nth temporary response message of the call request, the atcf reapplies for a pair of media resources to anchor an nth playback media, wherein the nth temporary response message carries description information about the nth playback media, and n is a natural number which is greater than or equal to 2; and the atcf performs playback on the nth playback media through the pair of media resource..

Dynamic inclusion thresholds for social network conversations

A social network conversation dynamic inclusion threshold is obtained that causes a first subset of social network group members of a social network group to be included in a social network conversation earlier than at least one other social network group member and that further causes the at least one other social network group member to be included in the social network conversation upon satisfaction of the obtained social network conversation dynamic inclusion threshold. In accordance with the obtained social network conversation dynamic inclusion threshold, social network posts of the social network conversation are contemporaneously distributed to the first subset of social network group members and delayed in distribution to the at least one other social network group member.

Method for detecting and classifying events of a scene

The subject of the invention is a method for detecting and classifying events of a scene by means of a single-pupil imaging system equipped with a visnir detector in the 0.6 μm-1.1 μm band and with an swir detector, which comprises steps of acquiring synchronized visnir and swir successive 2d images, of displaying the visnir images, and of processing these images, which consists in: comparing the swir images so as to determine, for each pixel, the variation in illumination from one swir image to another and the peak value of these swir illuminations, if this variation in swir illumination is greater than a threshold, then an event associated with said pixel is detected and: its date, its temporal shape and its duration are determined, in the visnir images, the coordinates are determined of the corresponding pixel for which: the variation in the illumination from one visnir image to another and the peak value of these visnir illuminations are calculated, and these variations in swir and visnir illumination and their peak values are compared so as to estimate a temperature of the event, the distance of the corresponding point of the scene is estimated so as to calculate the intensity of the event on the basis of the swir and visnir illuminations and on the basis of this distance, the total energy of the event is estimated on the basis of its temporal shape and of its intensity, the event is classified as a function of its duration, its temperature, its intensity and its energy, the previous steps are repeated for another pixel of the swir images.. .
