The communication application is configured to (i) support one or more media types within the context of the conversation, (ii) interleave the one or more media types in a time-indexed order within the context of the conversation, (iii) enable the participants to render the conversation including the interleaved one or more media types in either a real-time rendering mode or time-shifted rendering mode, and (iv) seamlessly transition the conversation between the two modes so that the conversation may take place substantially live when in the real-time rendering mode or asynchronously when in the time-shifted rendering mode.07-11-2013
20080279120Systems and Methods for Receiver Upgrade - Systems and methods for an upgradeable and/or reconfigurable receiver are provided. In general, the present invention is directed to providing systems and methods for designing an electronic communication system having easy and cost effective upgradeable receiver systems and components including, for example, an amplifier and/or a filter. For example, a receiver may include a receiver front end that is configured so that at least one of the original conventional system components may be used along with one or more new system components to provide greater receiver sensitivity and/or selectivity. In various embodiments, portions of an upgradeable receiver system may be made as modular components that allow easy replacement for the upgradeable components which may include a signal amplifier and/or a signal filter. In various embodiments the receiver may be upgraded by replacing a conventional low noise amplifier (LNA) with a high temperature superconductor (HTS) filter and/or a cryo-cooled LNA.11-13-2008
20110228708ETHERNET TRANSPORT OVER A TELEPHONE LINE - A modem for symmetric bi-directional transporting of an Ethernet signal, comprises a port connected to a physical layer module adapted to receive and transmit a single Ethernet signal, a data splitter for splitting the Ethernet signal into the configurable number of downstream data signals, another port comprising the configurable number of DSL ports coupled to the data splitter. Each port is adapted to transmit a separate downstream signal. Each transmitted downstream signal is transmitted via a corresponding telephone line connected to the port. Each port is further adapted to receive a separate upstream signal. Each received upstream signal is received over the corresponding telephone line connected to the DSL port, and a data collection and reorganization unit coupled to the DSL ports and adapted to assemble the upstream signals into the single Ethernet signal for transmission by the physical layer module.09-22-2011
