*** West Corp. Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 4 -- West Corp., Omaha, Neb., has been assigned a patent (8,346,231) developed by Matthew Clinton Smith, Birmingham, Ala., and Herbert Calvin Pyles Jr., Gurnee, Ill., for a "method and apparatus for establishing a conference call session with a wireless device." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method and system of establishing a conference call between end users provides initiating a request for at least one invitee to participate in the conference call. The request message is received on a first device prior to time the conference call is scheduled to begin. The message includes a hyperlink which may be activated to autonomously dial a number through the wireless device and connect with a conference call service provider. The conference call may be further accessed by satisfying one or more parameters necessary to enter the conference call. A communication link may be established between the at least one wireless device and the conference call service provider to begin the conference call via one or more autonomous conference call access operations." The patent application was filed on Jan. 8, 2008 (11/970,588). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,346,231.PN.&OS=PN/8,346,231&RS=PN/8,346,231 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.

*** Siemens Industry Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 4 -- Siemens Industry, Alpharetta, Ga., has been assigned a patent (8,346,398) developed by Osman Ahmed, Hawthorn Woods, Ill., and William Thomas Pienta, Prospect Heights, Ill., for a "data center thermal performance optimization using distributed cooling systems." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The various embodiments described herein relate to systems and methods, circuits and devices for providing data center cooling while optimizing power usage effectiveness and/or compute power efficiency of the data center. The various embodiments can provide optimized thermal performance and can reduce power consumption of the data center by strategically locating sensor modules, preferably microsystems with MEMS technology, in the data center and using a processing circuit to acquire data from the sensors and to generate a control law for operating the air conditioning system efficiently. In particular the sensors are operable to measure and provide granular environmental data to further characterize the environmental conditions of the racks locally, and the data center as a whole. The processing circuit may also generate a profile of local racks and simulate a data center environment to develop and test control strategies for implementation in the actual data center." The patent application was filed on Aug. 6, 2009 (12/537,043).

*** Sprint Spectrum Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 4 -- Sprint Spectrum, Overland Park, Kan., has been assigned a patent (8,346,282) developed by Srirama Krishna Dronamraju, Woodridge, Ill., Abhishek Lall, Manhattan, Kan., and Vishu Srinivasamurthy, Overland Park, Kan., for a "method and system for locating mobile stations using call measurement data." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A location of a mobile station is estimated based on wireless communications between the mobile station and a wireless telecommunications network. Call measurement data is obtained for a call involving the mobile station and a plurality of base station antennas. The call measurement data includes round-trip delay (RTD) measurements and received signal strength (RSS) measurements. The most significant one or more base station antennas involved in the call are identified. An expected signal strength is calculated for each significant base station antenna, according to a wireless propagation model that accounts for terrain around the base station antennas. For each significant base station antenna, the corresponding expected signal strength, RTD measurement, and RSS measurement are used to calculate an adjusted RTD value. The one or more adjusted RTD values calculated for the one or more significant base station antennas are used to estimate the mobile station's location." The patent application was filed on April 2, 2012 (13/437,165). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,346,282.PN.&OS=PN/8,346,282&RS=PN/8,346,282 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.

*** Motorola Mobility Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 4 -- Motorola Mobility, Libertyville, Ill., has been assigned a patent (8,346,302) developed by Rachid M. Alameh, Crystal Lake, Ill., and Aaron L. Dietrich, Caledonia, Ill., for a "portable electronic device having directional proximity sensors based on device orientation." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A portable electronic device having one or more proximity sensors. The portable electronic device comprises a housing, one or more signal emitters to direct source signal(s) based on the orientation of the housing, and one or more signal receivers to receive return signals corresponding to the source signal(s). The device may include multiple signal emitters and a sensor to identify an orientation of the housing. The appropriate signal emitter may be selected based on the orientation of the housing as identified by the sensor." The patent application was filed on Oct. 28, 2011 (13/283,984). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=8,346,302.PN.&OS=PN/8,346,302&RS=PN/8,346,302 Written by Kusum Sangma; edited by Anand Kumar.
