*** AT&T Intellectual Property I Assigned Patent for Remote Administration of Computer Access Settings ALEXANDRIA, Va., April 25 -- AT&T Intellectual Property I, Atlanta, has been assigned a patent (8,166,560) developed by five co-inventors for a "remote administration of computer access settings." The co-inventors are Anil Kumar Chebolu, Atlanta, Timothy A. Hill, Kennesaw, Ga., Marie Louiise McMenamin, Marietta, Ga., Zakir S. Patrawala, Atlanta, and Samira S. Virani, Atlanta.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The present disclosure provides systems and methods for controlling computer access. Briefly described in architecture, some embodiments of such a system provide a control unit for controlling user access to a computer in accordance with a user profile. An administrator of the computer is enabled to remotely access and modify the user profile. The user profile is stored at least in a remote database that is accessible via a server. Other systems and methods are also provided." The patent application was filed on Oct. 30, 2007 (11/929,101). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,166,560&OS=8,166,560&RS=8,166,560 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.


*** Avaya Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., April 25 -- Avaya, Basking Ridge, N.J., has been assigned a patent (8,166,485) developed by five co-inventors for "dynamic techniques for optimizing soft real-time task performance in virtual machines." The co-inventors are Anjur Sundaresan Krishnakumar, Princeton, N.J., Parameshwaran Krishnan, Basking Ridge, N.J., Min Lee, Atlanta, Navjot Singh, Denville, N.J., and Shalini Yajnik, Berkeley Heights, N.J.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Methods are disclosed that dynamically improve soft real-time task performance in virtualized computing environments under the management of an enhanced hypervisor comprising a credit scheduler. The enhanced hypervisor analyzes the on-going performance of the domains of interest and of the virtualized data-processing system. Based on the performance metrics disclosed herein, some of the governing parameters of the credit scheduler are adjusted. Adjustments are typically performed cyclically, wherein the performance metrics of an execution cycle are analyzed and, if need be, adjustments are applied in a later execution cycle. In alternative embodiments, some of the analysis and tuning functions are in a separate application that resides outside the hypervisor. The performance metrics disclosed herein include: a "total-time" metric; a "timeslice" metric; a number of "latency" metrics; and a "count" metric. In contrast to prior art, the present invention enables on-going monitoring of a virtualized data-processing system accompanied by dynamic adjustments based on objective metrics." The patent application was filed on Aug. 4, 2010 (12/849,921). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,166,485&OS=8,166,485&RS=8,166,485 Written by Satyaban Rath; edited by Hemanta Panigrahi.

*** AT&T Intellectual Property I Assigned Patent for Methods and Systems for Promoting Authentication of Technical Service Communications in a Telecommunications System ALEXANDRIA, Va., April 25 -- AT&T Intellectual Property I, Atlanta, has been assigned a patent (8,166,311) developed by four co-inventors for "methods and systems for promoting authentication of technical service communications in a telecommunications system." The co-inventors are Steven G. Smith, Roswell, Ga., Roland T. Morton Jr., Alpharetta, Ga., Robert H. Willis Jr., Louisville, Ky., and Mitchell E. Davis, Palmetto, Ga.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "In one embodiment of the present methods and systems, a computer-assisted method is provided for authenticating at least one service related communication with a technician in a telecommunications system. The method includes the steps of receiving at least one of a password and a user identification from an access device employed by the technician; combining a token with at least one of the password and the user identification data to form a combined authentication password; permitting access to the telecommunications system by the technician subject to an authentication of at least the combined authentication password. In another aspect, one embodiment of the present methods may include a service related communication that includes at least one wireless communication. Computer-readable media embodiments and system embodiments associated with the present methods are also provided." The patent application was filed on June 20, 2002 (10/175,699). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,166,311&OS=8,166,311&RS=8,166,311 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.
