Techniques are described herein that transfer information using a container-located module. The module is coupled to sensor(s) that are configured to detect characteristic(s) pertaining to a medical substance that is included in a medical container. The module wirelessly transfers information that is based on the characteristic(s) to a requesting device in response to a request from the requesting device.


A system and method providing location based wireless resource identification in a communication system. Various aspects may comprise determining a location of a communication system (e.g., a multimode communication device). One or more wireless resources may then, for example, be identified based, at least in part, on the determined location. Additionally for example, respective manners of communicating with identified wireless resources may be determined and utilized for communication between the communication system and the identified wireless resources. A communication system may, for example, comprise a location determination module adapted to determine a location of the communication device. A wireless resource identification module may, for example, be adapted to identify one or more wireless resources based, at least in part, on the determined location. Also for example, a communication manager module may be adapted to determine respective manners of communicating with the identified wireless resources.

Embodiments provide a method, apparatus and computer program for operating a user equipment (UE). The method beings by determining that a valid authentication for the UE, generated with a radio network operating with a first radio access technology (RAT), is not a mutual authentication between the UE and the network operating with the first RAT. In response, the UE unilaterally takes action to prevent the valid authentication that is not a mutual authentication from being used to authenticate with a radio network operating with a second RAT that utilizes mutual authentication.


A circuit includes a first wireless interface circuit that communicates packetized data to a first external device in accordance with a first wireless communication protocol. A second wireless interface circuit communicates packetized data to a second external device in accordance with a second wireless communication protocol. A plurality of signal lines communicate at least four lines of cooperation data between the first wireless interface circuit and the second wireless interface circuit, wherein the cooperation data relates to cooperate transceiving in a common frequency spectrum.

Multi-mode error concealment, recovery and resilience coding. Adaptation of a number of coding units (CUs) employed in accordance with video coding may be made as a function of error. As a number of errors increases, the respective number of CUs may correspondingly increase (e.g., which may be made in accompaniment with a reduction of CU size). As a number of errors decreases, the respective number of CUs may correspondingly decrease (e.g., which may be made in accompaniment with an increase of CU size). Such errors may be associated with a type of source providing a video signal, a type of error resilience coding employed, communication link and/or channel conditions, a remote error characteristic (e.g., such as associated with a source device and/or destination device), a local error characteristic (e.g., such as associated with operations and/or processing within a given device), and/or any other type of consideration.
