*** Ikanos Communications Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 10 -- Ikanos Communications, Fremont, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,351,598) developed by Kunal Raheja, Noida, India, and Patrick Duvaut, Tinton Falls, N.J., for a "crosstalk recognition in presence of radio frequency interference." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Crosstalk interference induced by the adjacent pairs is one of the major performance limiting factors of DSL systems. As there is a rapid increase in the deployment of DSL services worldwide, the need to provide information about noise related parameters to the operators and the service providers is of utmost importance. Satisfying such a need enables operators to anticipate the line capacity and understand the noise level characteristics of the loop environment. Specifically, crosstalk and more particularly upstream near end crosstalk (NEXT) in the presence of narrowband interference can be classified to isolate the particular service type causing the upstream NEXT. The identification of the service type of the upstream NEXT would enable operators to address the disturber." The patent application was filed on April 25, 2008 (12/109,566).

*** Futurewei Technologies Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 10 -- Futurewei Technologies, Plano, Texas, has been assigned a patent (8,351,785) developed by Yuanqiu Luo, Cranbury, N.J., and Frank J. Effenberger, Freehold, N.J., for a "gigabit passive optical network transmission convergence extension for next generation access." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An apparatus comprising a data framer configured to frame a data stream into a plurality of frames each comprising a plurality of fields sized to align the frames with a word boundary greater than or equal to about four bytes long, and an optical transmitter coupled to the data framer and configured to transmit the frames. Included is an apparatus comprising at least one component configured to implement a method comprising encapsulating a data stream with at least one Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) Encapsulation Method (GEM) payload aligned with a word boundary at least about four bytes long, encapsulating the GEM payload with a GPON Transmission Convergence (GTC) frame aligned with the word boundary, and transmitting the GTC frame." The patent application was filed on Jan. 19, 2009 (12/355,837). 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=8,351,785&OS=8,351,785&RS=8,351,785 Written by Arpi Sharma; edited by Anand Kumar.

*** AT&T Intellectual Property I Assigned Patent for System and Method to Assign a Digital Image to a Face Cluster ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 10 -- AT&T Intellectual Property I, Atlanta, has been assigned a patent (8,351,661) developed by Lee Begeja, Gillette, N.J., and Zhu Liu, Marlboro, N.J., for a "system and method to assign a digital image to a face cluster." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A computer implemented method includes accessing a digital image including a plurality of faces including a first face and a second face. The computer implemented method includes identifying a plurality of identification regions of the digital image including a first identification region associated with the first face and a second identification region associated with the second face. The computer implemented method also includes assigning the digital image to a first face cluster of a plurality of face clusters when a difference between data descriptive of the first identification region and data descriptive of a face cluster identification region of the first face cluster satisfies a threshold. The computer implemented method further includes assigning the digital image to a second face cluster of the plurality of face clusters based at least partially on a probability of the second face and the first face appearing together in an image." The patent application was filed on Dec. 2, 2009 (12/629,215). 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=8,351,661&OS=8,351,661&RS=8,351,661 Written by Arpi Sharma; edited by Anand Kumar.

*** University of Southern California Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 10 -- The University of Southern California, Los Angeles, has been assigned a patent (8,351,649) developed by Gerard Medioni, Los Angeles, Qian Yu, Plainsboro, N.J., and Thang Ba Dinh, Los Angeles, for a "video feed target tracking." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Technologies for object tracking can include accessing a video feed that captures an object in at least a portion of the video feed; operating a generative tracker to capture appearance variations of the object operating a discriminative tracker to discriminate the object from the object's background, where operating the discriminative tracker can include using a sliding window to process data from the video feed, and advancing the sliding window to focus the discriminative tracker on recent appearance variations of the object; training the generative tracker and the discriminative tracker based on the video feed, where the training can include updating the generative tracker based on an output of the discriminative tracker, and updating the discriminative tracker based on an output of the generative tracker; and tracking the object with information based on an output from the generative tracker and an output from the discriminative tracker." The patent application was filed on April 1, 2009 (12/416,913). 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=8,351,649&OS=8,351,649&RS=8,351,649 Written by Arpi Sharma; edited by Anand Kumar.
