A signal analysis system matches a mobile device cellular identifier to a mobile device network identifier. The system obtains multiple cellular positioning records (CPRs) and multiple network positioning records (NPRs). These records include different types of information because they are generated by different types of networks. The system performs spatial matching and temporal matching of the CPRs and the NPRs to identify a specific mobile device cellular identifier among the CPRs that belongs to a mobile device identified by a specific mobile device network interface identifier among the NPRs.

In some implementations, messaging services, through which messages from an entity, such as a company, are communicated to various users, are managed. In one aspect, the techniques described may be provided by a messaging management service that keeps track of such messaging services and provides messages to users through these messaging services on behalf of various companies. In this way, the messaging management service may enable companies to quickly establish a presence on new communication platforms and more easily communicate through the mobile communication and social networking services that are most suitable to their existing and potential customers.

Various embodiments provide an assessment tool that enables an automated functional assessment of applications for migration to target cloud computing platforms, such as a Platform as a Service (PaaS). The technical capabilities of various types of applications in a traditional non-platform deployment are studied and support for these technical capabilities is evaluated relative to the target platform.


A method for controlling a sensor may be performed by a mobile device including a processor and a memory. The method may include receiving raw data from the sensor, classifying the raw data into a context value, interpreting the context value into a higher-level context, receiving a predicted context based on the higher-level context, and controlling the sensor based on the predicted context. Controlling the sensor may include controlling a frequency at which raw data is received from the sensor, or an on/off state of the sensor. Control of the sensor may also be based on both the higher-level context and the predicted context.

A device is configured to receive a playlist identifying content assets to be played on a streaming video channel. Each of the content assets may include segments. The device may add segment addresses associated with a content asset into a queue. The segment addresses may identify memory locations at which the segments included in the content asset are stored. However, the segments themselves may not be stored by the device or added to the queue. The device may generate a batch of segment addresses from the segment addresses in the queue. The device may publish a channel manifest for the streaming video channel including the batch of segment addresses. The content assets may be accessible via the streaming video channel through a single network address. The device may periodically update the channel manifest based on the segment addresses in the queue.

A device receive data regarding a project. The device may automatically evaluate the data using a set of analytics tools. The device may communicate with a client device to provide a virtual agent user interface component based on evaluating the data using the set of analytics tools. The virtual agent user interface component may include information identifying a set of alerts relating to the project and a set of recommendations relating to the set of alerts. The device may receive information indicating that a particular recommendation, of the set of recommendations is to be implemented. The device may communicate with one or more other devices to implement the particular recommendation.

A system, may include a private cloud network operated by an operator for a client. The private cloud network may be connected to a public cloud network that operates a web platform and a plurality of groups of gateway devices. A first group of gateway devices may be located at an operator data center associated with the operator, and may provide connectivity for the operator data center to connect to the public cloud network via the private cloud network. A second group of gateway devices may be located at a client data center associated with the client, and may provide connectivity for the client data center to connect to the public cloud network via the private cloud network. The private cloud network may be connected to the public cloud network, the operator data center, and the client data center in a hub-and-spoke connection configuration.

Five DSOs (CEZ distribuce, ERDF, EON, Enexis, Avacon) associated with power system manufacturers, electricity retailers and power system experts, propose a set of six demonstrations for 12 to 24 months. Within three years, they aim at validating the enabling role of DSOs in calling for flexibility sources according to local, time-varying merit orders. Demonstrations are designed to run 18 separate use cases involving one or several of the levers increasing the local energy system flexibility: energy storage technologies (electricity, heat, cold), demand response schemes with two coupling of networks (electricity and gas, electricity and heat/cold), the integration of grid users owning electric vehicles, and the further automation of grid operations including contributions of micro-grids. The use cases are clustered into three groups. Three use cases in Sweden and the Czech Republic address the enhancement of the distribution network flexibility itself. Five use cases in France, Germany and Sweden demonstrate the role of IT solutions to increase drastically the speed of automation of the distribution networks, which can then make the best use of either local single or aggregated flexibilities. Ten use cases in Czech Republic, France, The Netherlands and Sweden combine an increased network automation and an increased level of aggregation to validate the plausibility of local flexibility markets where both distributed generation and controllable loads can be valued. Replicability of the results is studied by the DSOs and industry with an in-depth analysis of the interchangeability and interoperability of the tested critical technology components. Dissemination targeting the European DSOs and all the stakeholders of the electricity value chain will be addressed by deployment roadmaps for the most promising use cases, thus nourishing the preparation of the practical implementation of the future electricity market design, the draft of which is expected by end of 2016.
