Resource allocation methods and apparatus

An individual session border controller in a cluster of sbcs, e.g., in a cloud, sends a resource utilization reporting message to the current master resource manager for the cluster. In response to the received utilization reporting message from the individual sbc, the master resource manager determines a mode of operation, e.g. ... Sonus Networks Inc

Techniques for handout of an active session from a first network to a second network

A method includes establishing a first session (e.g., a wi-fi call) via a first connection to a first network, where the connection to the first network is provided by a first receiver of the mobile device, and monitoring a characteristic of the first connection to the first network. The method includes determining whether the characteristic satisfies a threshold. ... Sonus Networks Inc

Methods and apparatus for detecting and/or dealing with denial of service attacks

Methods and apparatus for detecting and minimizing the effects of denial of service (dos) attacks in high-speed networks in which packet processing is carried out by multiple processing cores. In one embodiment of the invention a communications method and apparatus detects and deletes denial of service attack packets in a multi-core distributed packet processing system using a lightweight dos attack packet detection and deletion process.. ... Sonus Networks Inc

Optimizations for voice handovers over wireless data access

Systems, methods, and computer-readable storage media are disclosed which provide improved performance for packet switched (ps)-to-ps handovers. Embodiments provide for improved handover operations by utilizing registration refreshing techniques to reduce the time required to complete signaling and registration of a ue over a target access in connection with a handover of a communication session from a serving access to the target access. ... Sonus Networks Inc

Use of aka methods and procedures for authentication of subscribers without access to sim credentials

Systems and methods which enable an authentication procedure to be used within the standard network security architecture to authenticate third party applications that are forbidden access to a particular secret key are disclosed. Third party smartphone applications that are unable to use sim-based authentication due to being forbidden access to a sim-based key are provided an alternate secret key for use in an eap-aka or eap-sim type procedure according to embodiments. ... Sonus Networks Inc

Communications methods and apparatus related to web initiated sessions

A client device, e.g., a smartphone including a web browser, requests a call authorization token from a web server, e.g., a web page server. The web server, acting on behalf of a company, whose web page is hosted and whose phone corresponds to the called party, screens incoming requests and decides whether or not to issue an authorization token, e.g., a signed token including an encrypted portion. ... Sonus Networks Inc

Methods and apparatus for synchronizing decryption state with remote encryption state

Methods and apparatus for supporting secure packet communications, e.g., srtp, which use implicit index numbers for synchronization and sequencing of received packets. The secure communications methods and apparatus having an adaptive index learning mode of operation and a non-adaptive index learning mode of operation. ... Sonus Networks Inc

Communications methods, apparatus and systems

The present invention is directed to methods, apparatus and systems for optimizing media paths in communications networks. An exemplary embodiment includes the steps of a first sbc (sbc1) receiving a session request including a sdp offer for a session between first and second devices including media stream(s), said request being sent by a second sbc (sbc2) and traversing a portion of a signaling path including intermediary device(s), determining that media stream(s) should bypass one or more of the intermediary device(s), generating and transmitting to sbc2 from sbc1 a sdp answer including at least one of: (i) all sdp media descriptor transport addresses being set to zero; (ii) all sdp media stream connection values being set to 0.0.0.0 and at least one media transport address being non-zero; or (iii) header information or sdp information indicating that at least one intermediary device should be bypassed for the one or more media streams.. ... Sonus Networks Inc

Opportunistic wireless resource utilization using dynamic traffic shaping

Systems and methods which provide resource sharing techniques implementing opportunistic shared resource utilization using dynamic traffic shaping are disclosed. Embodiments implement a multi-part transmission frame generation process in which data packets of various different traffic flows are selected for the transmission frame to fill the frame capacity. ... Sonus Networks Inc

Communications methods, apparatus and systems for correlating registrations, service requests and calls

The present invention relates to communications methods, apparatus and systems for correlating registrations with subsequent requests for service, e.g., calling or other services or active calls. In one embodiment requests and corresponding registrations are determined through a method of operating a session border controller (sbc) which includes the assignment of a registration instance identifier by the sbc to each registration request, sending a first message including the registration instance identifier to each user device in response to each registration request, and determining if subsequent requests correspond to the registration instance based on the registration instance identifier being included in subsequent requests. ... Sonus Networks Inc

Methods and apparatus for managing the use of ip addresses

The present invention relates to communications methods, apparatus and systems for efficiently managing napt bindings and mappings. An exemplary embodiment of operating a communication system includes the steps of (i) receiving, at a real-time communications entity, a media session offer from a device, (ii) transmitting, from the communications entity to a network address and port translation entity (napt), a request signal to allocate a public internet protocol (ip) address and port number pair corresponding to an interface on the napt for the session; (iii) determining, at the communications entity, a remote ip address and port number pair corresponding to an interface on the device to be used for communicating media of the media session; (iv) transmitting, from the communications entity to the napt, a signal identifying the determined remote ip address and port number pair; and (v) releasing, at the napt, the allocated public ip address and port number pair.. ... Sonus Networks Inc

Authentication methods and apparatus

Methods and apparatus for authenticating a user equipment device (ue) requesting services through a session border controller (sbc) are described. In some embodiments the sbc stores the challenge and response for a successfully authenticated ue and uses this information to authenticate the ue when the ue seeks access to a service, e.g., establishing a new tcp connection. ... Sonus Networks Inc

Communications methods, apparatus and systems for conserving media resource function resources

Communications methods, apparatus and systems for conserving media resource function (mrf) resources by identifying streams of sessions, for example, non-real time streams, which can be routed to avoid use of mrf resources. An exemplary embodiment includes receiving by a sbc a session initiation request from a first device directed to a second device for a session including a plurality of streams; establishing a plurality of routes to the second device, said routes including at least a first route and a second route, the first route not including a media content processing entity and the second route including a media content processing entity; identifying from the streams for the session a first set of streams; said first set of streams including one or more streams that do not require media content processing; and routing one or more of the streams of the first set of streams via the first route.. ...
