COMMUNICATION SYSTEM OF QUALITY OF EXPERIENCE ORIENTED CROSS-LAYER ADMISSION CONTROL AND BEAM ALLOCATION FOR FUNCTIONAL-SPLIT WIRELESS FRONTHAUL COMMUNICATIONS

Pub Date: 2020-05-21

Pub Number: US20200163153

Two algorithms for different functional-split network models are provided, which are the CU-based (central unit based) beam allocation and admission control algorithm (CU-BAACA) and the DU-based (distributed unit based) beam allocation and admission control algorithm (DU-BAACA). Difference between the CU-BAACA and DU-BAACA includes whether the algorithm is implemented at the CU site or at the DU site. Proposed algorithms aim to optimize DUs' quality of experience (QoE) by admission control to determine the amount of data from application layer entering into traffic queue and allocating beam in physical layer at the fronthaul network between CU and DUs. On the other hand, queueing delay and queue stability are taken into consideration to maintain the system steadiness. Simulation results compare performance of two functional split models to find the appropriate scenario for each function split option, which provide technical requirement and applicability of the proposed algorithms for practical system.

METHOD OF USING AN ENDENTULOUS SURGICAL GUIDE

Pub Date: 2020-05-21

Pub Number: US20200155271

An approach is disclosed that involves creating an updated master dental model of a patient's mouth after an implant surgery by aligning new postoperative oral scan data to pre-existing preoperative oral scan data that is more comprehensive (e.g., it includes bite registration). Before surgery a multi-piece stackable surgical guide set is created using the preoperative oral scan data. The surgical guide set is used to facilitate the surgery. After the surgery at least one piece of the surgical guide set is placed back in a patient's mouth and may act as a reference marker because it was created using the preoperative oral scan data, but is also part of the postoperative mouth configuration since it was used to facilitate the surgery. The affected portion of the mouth may then be digitally scanned directly or indirectly by way of a physical impression with the reference marker in place to determine the new characteristics resulting from the surgery such as new implant installation locations and orientations. The new postoperative oral scan data may be combined with the pre-existing preoperative oral scan data by way of the reference marker (since it is a constant between the two sets of scan data) without having to do such things as take a new bite registration, on which a new implant restoration can be easily created.
