A base station may establish a wireless connection with a mobile device. The base station may determine an index value for each of a plurality of carriers that may be used for the wireless connection. The index value for a respective carrier may be determined based on a quantity of idle mode devices using the respective carrier in an idle mode. The base station may generate a carrier order that indicates a priority for each of the plurality of frequencies. The carrier order may be generated based on sorting the plurality of carriers based on the index values for the plurality of carriers. The base station may send order information indicating the carrier order to the mobile device via the wireless connection.

A base station may establish a radio resource control (RRC) connection with a first user device. The base station may determine a bearer attribute of a bearer associated with the RRC connection and the first user device. The base station may determine that the bearer attribute satisfies a set of conditions, and may analyze multiple bearer attributes associated with multiple established RRC connections. The base station may select a terminable RRC connection, of the multiple established RRC connections, based on analyzing the multiple bearer attributes. The terminable RRC connection may be associated with a second user device that is different from the first user device, and the terminable RRC connection may be different from the RRC connection. The device may terminate the terminable RRC connection based on selecting the terminable RRC connection.

A computer initializes a configuration specified in an extensible markup language (XML) configuration file. The XML configuration file specifies at least one data source, a dimension to map each item of a plurality of items that include products, product accessories, or product support documents in the at least one data source, and a display priority for each item. Next, the computer reads data from the at least one data source specified in the configuration file. The computer generates an XML dimension hierarchy file for the read data using the configuration file. The XML dimension hierarchy file includes a dimension node for each item. Each dimension node has at least one property attached to each item and at least one synonym that is searchable to index each item. Finally, the computer preprocesses the XML dimension hierarchy file to index the at least one data source.

A system may be configured to allow for network-based authentication of a user device, which may reduce or eliminate the need for a user to provide credentials. The authentication may be performed when the user device attempts to access content provided by a third party content provider. The network-based authentication may be performed by, or in conjunction with, a device that (a) is associated with the same telecommunications network as the user device, and (b) can authenticate the identity of the user device.


A customer is provided with a personalized retail experience using a retail kiosk or mobile device that is enabled for near-field communication (NFC). The kiosk is provided with customer identifying information through an NFC-based communication with a customers user device. The kiosk authenticates the customer based on the identifying information, retrieves retail information associated with the customer from a back-end server, and provides the personalized retail experience using the retrieved information. In one example, the personalized retail experience is provided based on customer-input received through an NFC reader of the kiosk. Also, the mobile device can be provided with a retail store identifier through an NFC-based communication link with an NFC tag for the store. The personalized retail experience can then be provided through the mobile device based on retail information for the retail store that is retrieved by the mobile device based on the identifier obtained through NFC.

A system may be configured to allow for storage of location information regarding a set of user devices. The location information may be updated relatively frequently, and without introducing additional traffic into a wireless telecommunications network associated with the user devices. The location information may be made available to internal devices associated with the wireless telecommunications network and/or to external third party devices (such as banks, payment card processors, or advertisers) with user consent. Since the information is obtained and stored prior to requests, the location information may be provided, in response to requests, relatively quickly.

A device of a first party may receive a message from a second party. The device may obtain mapping information. The mapping information may be associated with a third party verification that the enterprise identifier was assigned to the second party. The mapping information may be associated with mapping the enterprise identifier to a media identifier selected by the second party or the third party to represent the enterprise sender. The device may map the enterprise identifier to the media identifier based on the mapping information. The device may provide the media identifier with the message.

A device receives a request for a flight path from a first location to a second location in a region, and calculates the flight path based on the request and based on one or more of weather information, air traffic information, obstacle information, regulatory information, or historical information associated with the region. The device determines required capabilities for the flight path based on the request, and selects, from multiple UAVs, a particular UAV based on the required capabilities for the flight path and based on a ranking of the multiple UAVs. The device generates flight path instructions for the flight path, and provides the flight path instructions to the particular UAV to permit the particular UAV to travel from the first location to the second location via the flight path.

A device receives a request for a mission that includes traversal of a flight path from a first location to a second location and performance of mission operations, and calculates the flight path from the first location to the second location based on the request. The device determines required capabilities for the mission based on the request, and identifies UAVs based on the required capabilities for the mission. The device generates flight path instructions for the flight path and mission instructions for the mission operations, and provides the flight path/mission instructions to the identified UAVs to permit the identified UAVs to travel from the first location to the second location, via the flight path, and to perform the mission operations at the second location.
