METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR CLOUD-NATIVE APPLICATIONS-BASED NETWORK OPERATIONS SYSTEM FOR CLOUD-NATIVE APPLICATIONS-BASED NETWORK OPERATIONS
Patent ID: EP3809631 Issued date: 09/02/2022 Patent office: EPO
Different aspects of the invention comprise a cloud-native architecture for SDN Controllers based on ABNO architecture and gRPC interfaces with autoscaling mechanisms for high request loads and auto-healing support. The cloud-native micro-ABNO architecture has several key benefits that benefits network automation. The micro-ABNO of the invention provides a higher degree of flexibility, stability and scalability than current monolithic SDN controllers. The application of cloud-native network control and management will provide network operators with a higher degree of network automation.

METHOD FOR EQUALIZING FILTERBANK MULTICARRIER (FBMC) MODULATIONS
Patent ID: EP2782304 Issued date: 22/06/2016 Patent office: EPO
A method for equalizing the received signal in communications based on filterbank multicarrier modulations and, more particularly, to such a method and system especially advantageous in situations where the channel frequency selectivity is exceptionally high. The method significantly improves the performance of traditional filterbank equalization algorithms based on finite impulse response filters at the output of the receive filterbank. Furthermore, the system consists of multiple parallel stages, the number of which can be tuned to achieve a good compromise between performance and computational complexity. Thanks to this modular structure, and to the fact that most of the architecture can be efficiently implemented using fast Fourier transforms, the system presents a very low computational complexity compared to more traditional equalizers for filterbank multicarrier modulations.

A method for monitoring terrain and man-made feature displacements using ground-based synthetic aperture radar (GBSAR) data
Patent ID: EP2413158 Issued date: 03/08/2013 Patent office: EPO
A method for monitoring terrain and man-made feature displacements comprising pre-processing sets of complex SAR images acquired in a first and in a subsequent campaign by means of a GBSAR instrument to obtain an incoherent mean SAR image for each campaign; selecting, in each of the incoherent mean SAR images, pixels which are representative of targets respectively in each of said sets of SAR image data, the said targets being selected from artificial corner reflectors, if they are deployed in the area of interest, and natural reflectors in the area of interest; performing a global image matching over the selected pixels to obtain a set of pairs of global shifts expressed in pixels and selecting a plurality of quality-scored pairs of global shifts; estimating GBSAR repositioning effects by obtaining a mask comprising stable-area pixels corresponding to stable areas in the area of interest, computing a subset of global shifts falling in the mask, estimating a co-registration transformat
