The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A system for combining a plurality of signals in a wireless communication device employs a plurality of base station duplexers each coupled to a corresponding base station from a plurality of collocated base stations, each base station capable of receiving and transmitting signals in accordance with a corresponding transmission protocol. Each duplexer includes a transmit and receive paths for allowing signals to be transmitted from the base station and further allowing signals to be received by the base station. Isolators are each coupled to a corresponding one of the transmit path of each of the duplexers. Bandpass filters are each coupled to an output port of a corresponding one of the isolator and a combiner receives signals provided by each one of the band pass filters. An antenna duplexer is coupled to an output port of the combiner via a transmit path, where the duplexer provides a combined signal of the collocated base stations to an antenna. The duplexer further includes a receive path for providing signals received by the antenna to a corresponding receive path of each of the base station duplexers." The patent application was filed on Sept. 2, 2009 (12/552,702).

*** Accenture Global Services Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 13 -- Accenture Global Services, Dublin, Ireland, has been assigned a patent (8,306,909) developed by Inder Preet Singh, Princeton Junction, N.J., for intelligent collections models.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Apparatuses, computer media, and methods for analyzing credit and tax form data and determining a collections treatment type to collect revenue. A collections model is constructed to determine a collections score that is based on raw credit data and tax form data and is indicative of a debtor's propensity to pay an owed amount. The collections model includes score bands, each score band being associated with a range of credit scores. A collections score is determined from a scoring expression that is associated with a score band and that typically includes a subset of available raw credit data and tax form data. A collections treatment type is determined from a collections score. Each treatment type corresponds to a treatment action that is directed to the debtor. A collections model is constructed from historical tax data, in which score bands and scoring expressions are constructed for the collections model." The patent application was filed on March 13, 2012 (13/419,248).

*** Alcatel Lucent Assigned Patent for Signal Suspension and Resumption in DSL Systems ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 13 -- Alcatel Lucent, Paris, has been assigned a patent (8,306,097) developed by four co-inventors for "signal suspension and resumption in DSL systems." The co-inventors are Adriaan J. De Lind Van Wijngaarden, New Providence, N.J., Jochen Maes, Veerle, Belgium, Carl Jeremy Nuzman, Union, N.J., and Danny Van Bruyssel, Temse, Belgium.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method includes maintaining temporally parallel DSL data communication sessions with DSL modems of a group via a set of lines. The method includes, in response to substantially stopping to receive DSL communications from one of the DSL modems via one of the lines, transmitting a substantially reduced average power to the one of the lines and monitoring the one of the lines to determine whether DSL communications have restarted being received from the one of the DSL modems. The method also includes resuming the maintaining of the temporally parallel DSL communication sessions in response to the monitoring determining that DSL communications have restarted being received from the one of the DSL modems." The patent application was filed on June 10, 2008 (12/157,461).

*** Alcatel Lucent Assigned Patent for Interference Cancellation with a Time-sliced Architecture ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 13 -- Alcatel Lucent, Paris, has been assigned a patent (8,306,164) developed by Emad Farag, Flanders, N.J., Sridhar Gollamudi, Morris Plains, N.J., and Robert Soni, Randolph, N.J., for an "interference cancellation with a time-sliced architecture." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "Example embodiments include methods of interference cancellation at NodeB receivers of baseband antenna signals including physical channels. The methods include canceling interference from a received baseband antenna signal by removing a reconstructed baseband signal from the processed received baseband antenna signal. The processed reconstructed baseband signal includes users whose physical data channel signals were successfully decoded. Methods also include removing interference from a received baseband signal to form an interference cancelled baseband signal that will be processed by the receiver. The interference cancelled baseband signal is the received baseband antenna signal minus users' signal interference contributions whose demodulated physical data channel signals have a determined user symbol energy value that exceeds a threshold. Methods further include removing interference from a user's signal to be error corrected. The interference is symbol interference from an earlier successfully decoded user's symbols. The user symbol interference is determined by cross correlations." The patent application was filed on Feb. 11, 2009 (12/379,024).

*** Alcatel Lucent Assigned Patent for Method and System for Maximizing Wavelength Reuse in Optically Protected WDM Networks ALEXANDRIA, Va., Nov. 13 -- Alcatel Lucent, Paris, has been assigned a patent (8,305,881) developed by five co-inventors for a "method and system for maximizing wavelength reuse in optically protected WDM networks." The co-inventors are Robert S. Harby, Fair Haven, N.J., David S. Levy, Bedminster, N.J., Dat D. Ngo, Howell, N.J., James Dorian Sandoz, Keyport, N.J., and Charles Small, Freehold, N.J.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method and system for maximizing wavelength reuse in an optically protected wavelength-division-multiplexed (WDM) network, the WDM network supporting a plurality of service connections, includes associating service connections supported by non-overlapping paths to form respective service channel groups, and for each service channel group, assigning at least one common wavelength channel for establishing the service connections. In addition, for each of said groups, at least one common wavelength channel is assigned for establishing a shared protection path for the service connections of each of said groups. In addition, the wavelength channels assigned for establishing the shared protection paths for each of the groups may be used for providing service connections for the WDM network when not in use as shared protection paths. However such provisional service connections are dropped when the wavelength channels are needed to establish shared protection paths. Such provisional service connections may be offered at reduced cost." The patent application was filed on Aug. 17, 2004 (10/919,618).
