Band Manager For Use In Multiple-Channel Networks

View page
US Patent:
6621795, Sep 16, 2003
Filed:
Oct 12, 1999
Appl. No.:
09/416335
Inventors:
Jason Keith Redi - Somerville MA
Roy Allen Westerberg - Concord MA
Assignee:
Verizon Corporate Services Group Inc. - New York NY
International Classification:
H04J 316
US Classification:
370235, 370329, 370437
Abstract:
A band manager ( ) for a frequency-agile network simplifies packet transmission over multiple channels in an ad hoc network or wireless network by acting as a filter between a radio layer ( ) and a network layer ( ). The band manager ( ) selects one channel out of multiple channels for transmitting and receiving packets, thereby taking the channel-decision making responsibility away from the components (e. g. , the routing module ( ), packet multiplexer ( ), clustering module ( )) in the network layer ( ). As a result, the radio layer ( ) and the network layer ( ) transmit and receive packets over a single channel selected by the band manager ( ) rather than handling multiple packets over multiple channels. The inventive band manager ( ) simplifies a multiple-channel network by making the network layer ( ) and radio layer ( ) act like a single-channel network.

Active Noise And Vibration Control System Accounting For Time Varying Plant, Using Residual Signal To Create Probe Signal

US Patent:
57968497, Aug 18, 1998
Filed:
Nov 8, 1994
Appl. No.:
8/335936
Inventors:
Ronald Bruce Coleman - Arlington MA
Bill Gene Watters - Gloucester MA
Roy Allen Westerberg - Concord MA
Assignee:
Bolt, Beranek and Newman Inc. - Cambridge MA
International Classification:
A61F 1106
H03B 2900
US Classification:
381 718
Abstract:
An active noise and vibration control system is constructed such that the residual signal from the residual sensor is fed back into the controller and used to generate the probe signal. Measurements of the residual signal are used to create a related signal, which has the same magnitude spectrum as the residual signal, but which is phase-uncorrelated with the residual signal. This latter signal is filtered by a shaping filter and attenuated to produce the desired probe signal. The characteristics of the shaping filter and the attenuator are chosen such that when the probe signal is filtered by the plant transfer function, its contribution to the magnitude spectrum of the residual signal is uniformly below the measured magnitude spectrum of the residual by a prescribed amount (for example, 6 dB) over the entire involved frequency range. The probe signal is then used to obtain a current estimate of the plant transfer function.
