  • Publication number: 20190182837
    Abstract: Various communication systems may benefit from appropriate configuration of available bandwidth. These and other communication systems, such as wireless communication systems, may benefit from resource indication for a larger channel bandwidth. One example is further enhanced machine type communication. A method can include determining, by a radio network node, a bandwidth for allocation to a user equipment. The allocated bandwidth can include resources in a single narrowband or a plurality of narrowbands. The method can also include indicating to the user equipment the single narrowband or the plurality of narrowbands and allocated resources in the single narrowband or the plurality of narrowbands.

  • Patent number: 10318759
    Abstract: An approach for maintaining user privacy information is described. A privacy management platform determines a request, from one or more applications, for access to local data associated with a device. The platform then determines and processes one or more privacy profile objects associated with the local data to determine one or more privacy policies associated with the local data, the device, or a combination thereof. Enforcement of the one or more privacy policies is then caused for granting access to the local data.
