A telecommunication device includes an image capture system that captures an image of a local participant in a telecommunication session, the image comprising foreground and background images defined by plural pixels, each of the pixels having a pixel magnitude related to a sample of the image at a spatial location of the respective pixel and a background modifier that segments plural pixels of the captured image into foreground and background sets of pixels, replaces the background set of pixels with a template set of pixels to form a new background set of pixels, selected pixels in the template set of pixels having a different magnitude than a magnitude of the corresponding pixel in the background set of pixels replaced by the selected pixel, and combines the new background set of pixels with the foreground set of pixels to form modified image information for transmission to a remote endpoint. A background selector selects the template set of pixels from among multiple template sets of pixels based on an attribute of a remote endpoint or remote participant associated with the remote endpoint.


A method and apparatus for automated mirroring is presented. A network device running as a Fabric Attach (FA) server configured to mirror traffic to a Remote Switch Port Analyzer (RSPAN) Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN), issues an FA Type Length Value (TLV) on its uplink to the FA server. The TLV includes a request to associate said RSPAN VLAN with a Service Identifier (I-SID) used to carry mirror traffic in a network. The network device sends the mirrored traffic on the RSPAN VLAN on its uplink to the FA server. The network device signals the I-SID into the network, and detects receive interest in the I-SID. The network device delivers the mirrored traffic to devices that expressed a receive interest in the mirrored traffic.


A method and apparatus for automated mirroring is presented. In a particular embodiment of a method for automated mirroring, a Network Device running as a Fabric Attach (FA) Server receives an FA Type Length Value (TLV) from an Access Device running as a FA proxy or client. The Access Device is configured to mirror traffic to a Remote Switch Port Analyzer (RSPAN) Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN). The TLV includes a request to associate the RSPAN VLAN with a Service Identifier (I-SID) used to carry mirror traffic in a network. The method includes wherein the FA server receives the mirrored traffic on the RSPAN VLAN. The FA Server signals the I-SID into the network, and detects receive interest in the I-SID. The FA Server delivers the mirrored traffic to devices that expressed a receive interest in the mirrored traffic.

A flow based routing method and apparatus selects a path from a plurality of different paths for assignment to a flow. The path is selected based on traffic performance measurements which identify relative congestion and performance of the different paths, so that traffic flows can be diverted away from network congestion points, thereby allowing network resources to be load balanced at a flow granularity. The present invention may be configured on physical or virtual links on an NE to enhance the forwarding of packets using the primary link and one or more alternate links to any given destination.


A computer-implemented method for packet switching in a transport network is described. The method comprises receiving a data packet at a first data switching device, the data packet having an existing header and being received from a customer network, the first data switching device being an edge node of a transport network. Encapsulating the data packet using a transport network header, the transport network header having a data structure that includes a transport device address space and a virtual local area network, VLAN, indicator space. Encapsulating the data packet includes setting a first portion of bits within the transport device address space, such that the first portion of bits indicates a data switching device address that is a node within the transport network. Encapsulating the data packet includes setting a second portion of bits within the transport device address space, such that the second portion of bits indicates a flow identifier. Selecting a forwarding path to a next-hop node of the transport network by using the flow identifier from the transport device address space as computational input for selecting the forwarding path. Forwarding the data packet to the next-hop node in the transport network using the selected forwarding path.

According to one embodiment, audio and non-audio data can be represented as sound sources in a three-dimensional sound space adapted to also provide visual data. Non-audio data can be associated with audio sound sources presented in the sound space. Navigation within this combined three-dimensional audio/visual space can be based primarily on the audio aspects of the sound sources with the details of the non-audio data being presented on demand, for example, when the listener navigates through the combined three-dimensional audio/visual space to a particular sound source at which point the non-audio data associated with that sound source can be presented.

A method for forming and disbanding dynamic temporary groups includes receiving a plurality of contacts at the facility, wherein each contact is associated with a respective user and a respective set of attributes; identifying a first subset of contacts which share a first common attribute; and dynamically forming a temporary group of contacts by determining a second common attribute shared by a second subset of the contacts, wherein the second subset of contacts is a smaller subset of the first subset of contacts. The method also includes identifying a related goods or service, based on the second common attribute, and presenting an offer for the related goods or services to the second subset of contacts and not to member contacts of the first subset that are not member contacts of the second subset of contacts.


System and method to adjust an automatic speech recognition (ASR) engine, the method including: receiving social network information from a social network; data mining the social network information to extract one or more characteristics; inferring a trend from the extracted one or more characteristics; and adjusting the ASR engine based upon the inferred trend. Embodiments of the method may further include: receiving a speech signal from a user; and recognizing the speech signal by use of the adjusted ASR engine. Further embodiments of the method may include: producing a list of candidate matching words; and ranking the list of candidate matching words by use of the inferred trend.

Embodiments disclosed herein provide systems and methods for acoustically transferring information between systems. In a particular embodiment, a method provides identifying information for acoustic transfer and determining an amount of time corresponding to the information. The method further provides acoustically transmitting a signal at a first time and, upon the amount of time elapsing since the first time, acoustically transmitting the signal at a second time.


Implementations relate to configuration of networks using client device access of a remote server. In some implementations, a method includes requesting a management server from an end device for shortest path bridging (SPB) configuration information for the end device to communicate on an SPB network, where the end device communicates with the management server over a non-SPB connection. The SPB configuration information is received from the management server, and the SPB configuration information is sent to an edge configuration device connected to the end device, where the SPB configuration information causes configuration of the edge configuration device to allow communication of the end device on the SPB network.
