Systems and methods presented herein enhance WiFi communications in a RF band where conflicting LTE signaling exists. In one embodiment, a system includes a processor operable to detect the WiFi communications between a UE and a wireless access point of a WiFi network, to identify errors in the WiFi communications, and to determine a periodicity of the errors based on the LTE signaling structure. The system also includes an encoder communicatively coupled to the processor and operable to encode the WiFi communications with error correction, and to change the error correction based on the periodicity of the errors in the WiFi communications.

A method of reducing transmission power for an encoded data stream includes the steps of receiving an incoming data stream having equal probability for a plurality of incoming data bits, assigning a symbol scheme to the received data bits of the incoming data stream according to probabilities of occurrence of individual ones of the received data bits, and transmitting an outgoing data stream according to the assigned symbol scheme having a second average transmit power, different than the first average transmit power, for a plurality of outgoing symbols.


Preemptive caching within content/name/information centric networking environment is contemplated. The preemptively caching may be performed within content/name/information centric networking environments of the type having a branching structure or other architecture sufficient to facilitate routing data, content, etc. such that one or more nodes other than a node soliciting a content object also receive the content object.

A method for mediating resource allocation includes a step of receiving from at least one first computation module, a first proposed resource allocation for completing a computational task. The method further includes a step of comparing the received first proposed resource allocation to at least one of a predetermined resource allocation criteria and at least one second proposed resource allocation received from at least one second computation module, and a step of determining a resource allocation instruction based, at least in part, on a result of the step of comparing.

Multi-link transportation of media, video and other data of the type having multiple layers, streams and/or encodings is contemplated. The multi-link transportation may be facilitated with a scheduler configured to schedule the various layers, streams, encodings, etc. for transportation over selectable communication links, such as based on reliability, capacity and/or other operating characteristics.


A system and method for optimizing the end-to-end latency transfer rates over an air interface employing a Multi-hop Relays (MHR). The present system and method provides fast signaling process when no Downlink/Uplink Bandwidth allocation changes are employed, thereby bypassing PHY/MAC/IP Stack processing. The solution is intended for the new generation of 5G millimeter band multi-hop relays.


Systems and methods presented herein provide for improving communications when encountering aggressive communication systems. In one embodiment, a communication system includes a WAP operable to link a UE to a communication network via a communication protocol and a communications processor operable with the WAP to detect another communication system operating within a range of the WAP, and to determine that the other communication system is operating via another communication protocol that differs from the communication protocol of the communication network based on UEs in range of the WAP. The UEs are operable to communicate via both communication protocols. The communications processor queries the UEs in the range of the WAP to determine which of the UEs are communicating via the other communication protocol, and estimates a rate of successful communication with the UE via the WAP based on a number of UEs communicating via the other communication protocol.


Systems and methods presented herein provide for improving communications when encountering aggressive communication systems. In one embodiment, a communication system comprises a wireless access point operable to link a first user equipment (UE) to a WiFi network via a contention based mode that directs the WAP to share radio frequency spectrum with other WAPs. The communication system also comprises a communication processor operable to query at least the first UE to determine aggressive radio frequency (RF) band activity by another communication system in range of the WAP, to determine that the aggressive RF band activity by the other communication system is pushing communication with the first UE via the WAP below a threshold level, and based on the determination, direct the WAP to switch to a contention free mode to communicate with the first UE in contention free mode.
