Huawei Technologies Co., ...

1. A load control method of a network device, comprising:
setting, by the network device, an access condition for accessing a first network by a terminal;
receiving, by the network device, a first signal from the terminal;
obtaining, by the network device, a measurement parameter of the terminal according to the first signal, and comparing the
measurement parameter with the access condition, wherein the measurement parameter is at least one of a signal strength of
the terminal and a distance between the terminal and the network device; and

sending, by the network device, a second signal to the terminal, so as to allow the terminal to access the first network when
the measurement parameter of the terminal satisfies the access condition;

wherein the access condition comprises one of the following:
(a) the measurement parameter is greater than or equal to a preset measurement parameter threshold,
(b) a fluctuation of the measurement parameter is less than or equal to a preset fluctuation threshold of the measurement
parameter, and

(c) a frequency of fluctuation in the measurement parameter is less than or equal to a preset frequency of fluctuation in
the measurement parameter.

SERVICE PROCESSING METHOD AND RELATED DEVICE

Huawei Technologies Co., ...

1. A service processing method, comprising:
receiving, by a mobility management entity (MME), an access request message sent by a user equipment;
obtaining, by the MME, indication information; and
if the MME has been registered as a short message serving node and it is determined, according to the indication information,
that the MME is no longer used as the short message serving node, sending, by the MME, a notification to a home subscriber
server (HSS) so that the HSS cancels registration of the MME as the short message serving node.

SIMPLE 2D PHASE-MODE ENABLED BEAM-STEERING MEANS

HUAWEI TECHNOLOGIES CO., ...

1. An apparatus for beam-steering, comprising:
a first hybrid splitter/combiner connected to a 0-th phase-mode feed of an array of antenna elements;
a second hybrid splitter/combiner, wherein an output of the second splitter/combiner comprises a main output beam;
a first pair of variable phase shifters connecting the first hybrid splitter/combiner to the second hybrid splitter/combiner,
wherein the first pair of variable phase shifters control a steering direction of the main output beam radial with respect
to an array axis by adjustments of respective phases of the variable phase shifters, wherein the respective phases are equal
in magnitude and opposite in sign, and wherein the array axis is perpendicular to a plane of the array; and

a third variable phase shifter connecting a 1-st phase-mode feed of an array of elements to an input of the first hybrid splitter/combiner,
wherein the third variable phase shifter is configured to independently control a direction of the main output beam in a direction
circumferential with respect to the array axis.

PACKET PROCESSING METHOD, DEVICE AND SYSTEM

Huawei Technologies Co., ...

1. A method performed by a network device acting as a forwarding element within a centralized system in which a control plane
and a data plane are decoupled, the method comprising:
receiving a first flow entry from a controller, wherein the first flow entry comprises first information for indicating importance
of the first flow entry, wherein the importance of the first flow entry is used to determine whether to delete a second flow
entry, the second flow entry having second information for indicating importance of the second flow entry, in response to
determining that there exists no idle resource for storing the first flow entry in a flow table;

determining whether an idle resource for storing the first flow entry in a flow table exists;
in response to determining that no idle resource for storing the first flow entry in the flow table exists, determining whether
the second flow entry exists in the flow table, wherein the second flow entry comprises the second information for indicating
importance of the second flow entry and wherein the importance indicated by the second information is lower than the importance
indicated by the first information; and

in response to determining that the second flow entry exists in the flow table, deleting the second flow entry from the flow
table and then adding the first flow entry to the flow table.

METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR MAINTAINING CONTACT INFORMATION

Huawei Technologies Co., ...

1. A method for maintaining contact information, comprising:
acquiring address book information of a user and authorization settings of the address book information of the user and saving
the address book information in an address book server;

receiving a subscription request from a subscriber device, and establishing, according to confirmation information from a
subscribed-for user regarding the subscription request from the subscriber device, a subscription relation list for the subscribed-for
user and the subscriber device; and

updating, by the address book server, address book information of the subscriber device according to a subscription relation
and authorization settings in the subscription relation list when the subscribed-for user modifies address book information
of the subscribed-for user stored in the address book server.
