    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure provide a method and apparatus for indicating power allocation in multiuser superposition transmission. The method comprises: transmitting a signaling for indicating a first power parameter and a first power offset to a first UE so that the first UE determines first power allocation information specific to it based on the first power parameter and the first power offset; and transmitting a signaling for indicating a second power parameter and a second power offset to a second UE paired with the first UE so that the second UE determines second power allocation information specific to it based on the second power parameter and the second power offset. Embodiments of the present disclosure enable the near/victim UE of paired UEs to decode an interference signal caused by far/interfering UE based on power allocation information and remove the interference signal caused by far/interfering UE to improve correctness of decoding its own physical downlink shared channel data.

  • Patent number: 10177917
    Abstract: A technique is provided for extending a handshake communication between a communication device and an application server. The application server receives at least two messages from the communication device, each message comprising a handshake index and triggering a handshake session so that the application server negotiates with the communication device a set of cryptographic parameters. For each received message, the application server stores a negotiated set of cryptographic parameters in correspondence with a connection state index depending on the handshake index. The application server activates one of the stored sets of cryptographic parameters to establish a secured connection with the communication device.
