  • Publication number: 20230031540
    Abstract: A method, apparatus and a non-transitory computer readable medium are provided for receiving an input picture divided into a plurality of coding units (CUs) and comprising a virtual boundaries between a dirty area and a clean area of the input picture, each CU located within either the clean area or the dirty area. The virtual boundary is treated as a picture boundary for coding units within the clean area and as a non-boundary for coding units within the dirty area. For a current CU, a history-based motion vector prediction (HMVP) table can be prepared that identifies other CUs as HMVP candidates for inter prediction, the HMVP candidates being adjacent the current CU. The HMVP candidate CUs are limited to CUs previously coded in the clean area. The current CU can be intra coded based at least upon the HMVP candidates from the HMVP table.

  • Publication number: 20230032390
    Abstract: Techniques for improving the resiliency of communication networks by providing radio access network data stored in a radio access network database to one or more associated radio access network nodes are provided. A network entity receives a connection request from a user device including at least a radio access network set identifier or radio access network database identifier. The network entity determines whether the radio access network set identifier received in the connection request corresponds to an associated radio access network set identifier. In an instance in which the radio access network set identifier received in the connection request corresponds to the associated radio access network set identifier, radio access network database data are retrieved from the radio access network database associated with the radio access network set identifier. The radio access network database data include at least user device context data for the associated user device.

  • Patent number: 11570736
    Abstract: In order to perform small data transmission during an RRC_INACTIVE mode, a UE may need to determine whether the stored timing advance (TA) is valid. A TA may be valid if its usage would result in an uplink transmission arriving at a TRP of a base station during a time period during which the base station expects to receive uplink transmission. A UE may determine that a TA is valid based on a received fraction of the length of a cyclic prefix and observed SSB time shift.
