A sign of the landslide disaster is easily detected. A model learning unit (120) of an anomaly detection device (100) learns a relational expression between vibration strengths at frequencies based on a time series of frequency characteristics of a vibration strength detected during a learning period by a vibration sensor placed on a monitoring target. The anomaly detection unit (140) learns a relational expression between vibration strengths at frequencies based on a time series of frequency characteristics of a vibration strength detected during a new period by the vibration sensor. Then, the anomaly detection unit (140) determines whether or not there is an anomaly in the monitoring target based on a relational expression related to a new frequency, which is different from the relational expression learned during the learning period.


The antenna device includes an antenna unit (110) mounted so that its direction is adjustable, a motor-driven unit (124, 125) that changes a direction of the antenna unit (110), a camera (130) fixed so that its direction relative to the antenna unit (110) does not change, and a direction adjustment control unit (200) that supplies a drive signal to the motor-driven unit (124, 125) and adjusts the direction of the antenna unit (110). The direction adjustment control unit (200) performs feedback control to return the direction of the antenna unit (110) back to an initial direction based on an image taken by the camera (130). It is thereby possible to maintain the communication quality even when a mechanical vibration occurs in a structure on which an antenna device is mounted.


A technique making it possible to perform flexible virtual machine control is provided. A server according to the present invention is characterized by including: a first means capable of operating a plurality of network functions executed by a network node on a plurality of virtual machines corresponding respectively to the network functions; and a second means capable of forwarding a received signal to a virtual machine that operates a network function corresponding to the received signal, wherein the first means is capable of controlling a resource to allocate to the virtual machine corresponding to the network function, depending on a type of the network function.

The present invention enables control of the specifications of a transmission unit and reception unit in a manner so as to reduce the effect of scattered waves reaching the reception unit as a result of scattering caused by the medium through which wave propagates. This target detection device has a transmission unit, a reception unit, a detection unit, and a control unit. The control unit controls the specifications of the transmission unit and reception unit in a manner so as to satisfy a relational equation for reducing the effect of scattered waves reaching the reception unit due to scattering caused by the medium through which wave propagates. The transmission unit transmits wave, and the reception unit receives the reflection wave of the wave reflected by a detection subject. The detection unit detects the detection subject on the basis of the output of the reception unit.


Disclosed is a data transfer system capable of efficiently transferring broadcast and multicast packets when a virtual network is configured in a network arranged over multiple domains. The data transfer system is equipped with: a first data transfer server for tunnel end points which belong to a first domain; and a second data transfer server for tunnel end points which belong to a second domain. The first data transfer server, upon receiving a packet from a tunnel end point in the first domain, transfers the packet to the second data transfer server and to the tunnel end points in the first domain other than the packet transfer source tunnel end point, and the second data transfer server, upon receiving the packet from the first data transfer server, transfers the packet to the tunnel end points in the second domain.

A communications system is provided in which persistently allocated resources used by a node to communicate data with another node of the communications system can be reallocated or new dynamic resources can be allocated to allow the node to communicate using both the persistently allocated resources and the dynamically allocated resources. The system does this without changing the structure of a control channel used to communicate resource allocations.


When a mobile terminal currently performing a voice communication or currently initiating a call by use of a VoLTE function moves from an LTE network to 3G femto-network, a GW (100) is connected to an MME (200) disposed on an access network in the LTE network and to an FAP (300) having an IMS-femtocell area as a communication area to be handed over the voice communication or the initiation of the call. When the mobile terminal currently performing the telephone communication or currently initiating the call moves from the communication area of the LTE network to the IMS-femtocell area, a call processing of the mobile terminal is caused to be handed over from the MME (200) to the FAP (300).


A wireless communications method implemented in a transmission point (TP) used in a wireless communications system is disclosed. The wireless communications method comprises receiving, from another TP, channel state information (CSI) for a user equipment (UE), and receiving, from said another TP, user identification for the user equipment, wherein the signaling of the CSI for the user equipment enables user identification for the user equipment. Other methods, systems, and apparatuses also are disclosed.

A method and system for data communication in a Multi-user Multiple-Input and Multiple-Output (MU-MIMO) system is provided. The method includes receiving, from a first UE of the plurality of UEs, first and second channel information relating to first and second subsets of antennae; generating first and second sub-precoders according to the first and second channel information; generating a precoder according at least in part to the first and second sub-precoders; and transmitting data to the first UE using the precoder.


An SeNB (30) informs an MeNB (20) that it can configure bearers for the given UE (10). At this time, the MeNB (20) manages the DRB status, and then sends a key S-KeNB to the SeNB (30). The MeNB (20) also sends a KSI for the S-KeNB to both of the UE (10) and the SeNB (30). After this procedure, the MeNB (20) informs an EPC (MME (40) and S-GW (50)) about the new bearer configured at the SeNB (30), such that the S-GW 50 can start offloading the bearer(s) to the SeNB 30. Prior to the offloading, the EPC network entity (MME (40) or S-GW (50)) performs verification that: 1) whether the request is coming from authenticated source (MeNB); and 2) whether the SeNB (30) is a valid eNB to which the traffic can be offload.
