A system and method of subframe configuration in licensed-assisted access using long-term evolution (LAA-LTE) with carrier aggregation (CA). A wireless device such as an eNodeB (eNB) may transmit control information in a subframe from a secondary cell (SCell) in downlink control information (DCI) to a user equipment (UE). The SCell may operate in an unlicensed band. The control information may indicate at least one of a non-ending subframe in a data burst, an ending subframe, and a duration of the ending subframe. The duration may be one of a predefined number of orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) symbol durations, and the ending subframe may be a partial or full subframe. A partial ending subframe may use a time slot structure in a time division duplexing (TDD) scheme, e.g., downlink pilot time slots (DwPTS). The eNB may then transmit to the UE data in the subframe according to the control information.

A network node that provides egress fault protection for a primary egress node. The network node may receive a service label associated with an application from a primary egress node of a primary label switched path (LSP). The network node may use the service label to add a forwarding entry into a forwarding table associated with the primary egress node. Following a fault in the primary egress node, the network node may receive a data packet comprising an LSP label and the service label from a partial backup LSP. The network node may use the LSP label to locate the forwarding table associated with the primary egress node. The service label may be used to deliver the data packet to a destination node according to the forwarding table associated with the primary egress node.

System and Method for Content Encryption in a Key/Value Store System and method embodiments are provided for content encryption in a key/value store. The embodiments include encrypting both the key and value of client data blocks for storage so that the data can be retrieved reliability without compromising the key. An embodiment method includes obtaining a key from a data block comprising the key and a value, encrypting the key using a deterministic encryption algorithm with an encryption key to map the key to a cypher text in a one-to-one mapping, and encrypting the value using a second encryption algorithm to randomly map the value to a second cypher text. Encrypting both the key and the value provides more protection to the client data instead of encrypting only the value and leaving the key vulnerable without encryption. The encrypted key can also be protected from unauthorized access and from the owner of the database or the storage system.
