  • Patent number: 10972373
    Abstract: System and method for making a vertical handover decision between first and second networks using a terminal configured to attach to both networks and a fixed point in either network. Both networks allow information flow between the terminal and the fixed point. When attached to the first network the terminal detects the second and compares a first bandwidth measurement, representing available bandwidth along a first path between the terminal and the fixed point, to a second bandwidth measurement representing available bandwidth along a second path between the terminal and the fixed point. The terminal maintains attach to the first network if the first bandwidth measurement is higher than the second bandwidth measurement and makes a decision to handover to the second network if the second band¬ width measurement is higher than first bandwidth measurement.

  • Patent number: 10834738
    Abstract: Communication between a source device and one or more pairs of accessory devices and between accessory devices within pairs of accessory devices is scheduled using slot availability masks (SAMs). A primary accessory device provides to the source device information about requirements for communication between the primary accessory device and a secondary accessory device. The source device determines a SAM map that specifies a periodic cycle of time slots, with time slots marked as available or unavailable for transmission and/or reception. The SAM map satisfies requirements to avoid collisions between communication between the source device and the accessory devices and communication between accessory devices within pairs of accessory devices. When multiple pairs of accessory devices establish connections with the source device, internal communication between accessory devices within pairs of accessory devices are aligned to use at least a common overlapping set of time slots.

  • Patent number: 10791496
    Abstract: A communication session for a UE can be restored in the event of serving call session control function (S-CSCF) node unavailability and/or application server (AS) unavailability by storing, prior to IMS unavailability, attribute-value pairs (AVPs) at a home subscriber server (HSS). These AVPs can be used independently by individual IMS nodes to restore a communication session for a UE due to an unavailable IMS node. When a first S-CSCF node becomes unavailable, a proxy CSCF (P-CSCF) node can send a SIP request originating from the UE to a second S-CSCF node. The second S-CSCF node can then send a request to the HSS for an identifier of an AS associated with the UE. Upon receipt of the AS identifier (e.g., an active AS name AVP) from the HSS, the second S-CSCF node can send the SIP request to the AS in order to restore the communication session for the UE.

  • Patent number: 10790939
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and devices can be utilized to schedule at least one Hybrid Automatic Repeat Request (HARQ) transmission and at least one HARQ feedback message in the same Physical Resource Block (PRB). A HARQ transmission can be scheduled in a mini-slot of the PRB. Accordingly, latencies associated with transmitting and receiving the PRB can be reduced, while the high reliability of HARQ can be retained. Implementations can be applied to 5G technologies such as Ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications (URLLCs) and enhanced Mobile BroadBand (eMBB), as well as other low-latency communications. A method can include detecting a condition of a device; selecting, based at least in part on the condition of the device, a mini-slot size; scheduling, in one or more mini-slots having the mini-slot size in a PRB, a HARQ transmission; and transmitting, to the device, the HARQ transmission in the one or more mini-slots of the PRB.

  • Patent number: 10785157
    Abstract: The techniques describe adaptive load-balancing based on traffic feedback from packet processors. In one example, a source virtual network node of the network device may determine whether a particular destination packet processor is or may become oversubscribed. For example, source packet processors of the source virtual network node may exchange feedback messages including traffic flow rate information. The source virtual network node may compute a total traffic flow rate and compare the total traffic flow rate with a bandwidth of the particular destination packet processor. In response to determining that the bandwidth of the destination packet processor is oversubscribed, the source virtual network node may update a forwarding plane data structure to reduce a likelihood of selecting the destination packet processor to which to forward packet flows.
