*** AT&T Intellectual Property II Assigned Patent for Method and Apparatus for Self-learning of Call Routing Information ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 8 -- AT&T Intellectual Property II, Atlanta, has been assigned a patent (8,305,926) developed by four co-inventors for a "method and apparatus for self-learning of call routing information." The co-inventors are Christine Yu-Sha Chou Clark, Matawan, N.J., Sekar Ganesan, Tinton Falls, N.J., Leticia Garcia Johnson, Arvada, Colo., and Richard J. Sullivan, Spring Lake, N.J.


The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The present invention is directed to a method and apparatus for learning call routing information in a communication system. A switching architecture is presented. The switch may be implemented in a centralized architecture or a distributed architecture. In addition, the switch may be implemented in a variety of networks such as a circuit-switched network or a packet-switched network. The switch includes a policy server and a self-learning application server. The policy server includes routing information for routing calls across the switch. The routes for incoming and outgoing calls are analyzed as they pass through the switch. The self-learning application server uses artificial intelligence techniques and caching algorithms to learn new more-efficient routing paths or initial routing paths based on the incoming and outgoing calls. The self-learning application server then updates the policy server with the new learned routes." The patent application was filed on Sept. 4, 2002 (10/235,187).

*** West Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 8 -- West, Omaha, Neb., has been assigned a patent (8,305,912) developed by seven co-inventors for a "network and method providing an indication of network capabilities to a user for special number calls." The co-inventors are John Lawrence Snapp, Westminster, Colo., Marcus Robert Andronici, Nederland, Colo., Cynthia Corne, Lafayette, Colo., Robin Erkkila, Lafayette, Colo., Bill Hyatt, Longmont, Colo., John Kearney, Boulder, Colo., and Matt Wilson, Thornton, Colo.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Networks and methods are disclosed for providing an indication of the capability of a communication network for serving special number calls. Before a user places a special number call, the communication network determines the capability of the communication network for serving a special number call, and provides the indication of the network capability to the user. The user is thus kept aware of the quality of the special number service available to them through the communication network." The patent application was filed on Feb. 17, 2010 (12/706,753). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,05,912.PN.&OS=PN/83,05,912&RS=PN/83,05,912 Written by Amal Ahmed; edited by Jaya Anand.

*** Cable Television Laboratories Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 8 -- Cable Television Laboratories, Louisville, Colo., has been assigned a patent (8,305,919) developed by Kevin C. Johns, Erie, Colo., and David C. Hancock, Broomfield, Colo., for a "dynamic management of end-to-end network loss during a phone call." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method and system of managing end-to-end loss in a manner that allows phone calls to be executed across many networks at desirable end-to-end loss levels, including networks having fixed-loss stratagems, by controlling devices to adjust their local loss or gain in order to establish target end-to-end loss." The patent application was filed on July 1, 2009 (12/496,090). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,05,919.PN.&OS=PN/83,05,919&RS=PN/83,05,919 Written by Amal Ahmed; edited by Jaya Anand.

*** Netapp Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 8 -- Netapp, Sunnyvale, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,307,159) developed by Brian McKean, Longmont, Colo., for a "system and method for providing performance-enhanced rebuild of a solid-state drive (SSD) in a solid-state drive hard disk drive (SSD HDD) redundant array of inexpensive disks 1 (RAID 1) pair." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The present invention is a method for implementing a storage system. The storage system may include a disk array having a disk drive pair which includes a solid-state disk drive and a hard disk drive. The method may include the step of copying a data subset of a data set from the hard disk drive to a spare solid-state disk drive during a solid-state disk drive rebuild process. The data subset includes a first amount of data and the data set includes a second amount of data, where the first amount of data is less than the second amount of data. The method may further include the step of receiving a read request from a host server requesting the data subset. The method further includes the step of directing the read command to the spare solid-state disk drive." The patent application was filed on Jan. 9, 2012 (13/346,274).

*** Ball Aerospace & Technologies Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 8 -- Ball Aerospace & Technologies, Boulder, Colo., has been assigned a patent (8,306,273) developed by Ian J. Gravseth, Longmont, Colo., and Jeffrey J. Bladt, Longmont, Colo., for a "method and apparatus for LIDAR target identification and pose estimation." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The present invention pertains to the identification of a set of measurement data, using an a priori model database, which is then used in the determination of a pose solution using LADAR data. In particular, a model database of a target scene is created. The model database includes location information for a plurality of points within the target scene, and separation distances between sets of those points defining triangles. LADAR data obtained from a target scene is processed to extract features. Location information and separation distances between sets of extracted features defining triangles are placed in a measurement database. Separation distances contained in the measurement database are compared to separation distances contained in the model database. If a match is found, a rotation quaternion and translation vector are calculated, to transform the data in the measurement database into the frame of reference of the data in the model database. The rotation quaternion and translation vector can be applied to additional sets of data defining additional triangles, to verify that the target scene has been correctly identified. A pose solution and range can then be output." The patent application was filed on Dec. 28, 2009 (12/647,883). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,306,273.PN.&OS=PN/8,306,273&RS=PN/8,306,273 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.
