  • Patent number: 10524283
    Abstract: A wireless telecommunications system that supports a virtual carrier mode operation in which downlink communications are made by a base station while a terminal device receives at least some communications from the base station within a restricted subset of transmission resources. When there is to be a change in system information, the base station transmits to the terminal device an indication that updated system information is to be broadcast by the base station to plural terminal devices and the terminal device seeks to acquire the updated system information using the restricted subset of transmission resources. The base station further conveys to the terminal device an allocation of uplink transmission resources for acknowledgement signalling for the updated system information and the terminal device responds by using the allocated uplink transmission resources to convey to the base station an indication whether or not the terminal device has acquired the updated system information.

  • Patent number: 10517122
    Abstract: A radio network node (110) manages (A010) establishment of a current radio session between a user equipment (120) and the radio network node (110), wherein the current radio session is associated with a current set of characteristics relating to the radio network node (110) and/or the user equipment (120). During establishment of the current radio session, a core network node (130) retrieves (A080), based on the current set of characteristics, an indication about the MCS offset from a memory (141, 142) accessible by the core network node (130). Then, the core network node (130) sends (A090), to the radio network node (110), the indication about the MCS offset. The indication is derived from a previous radio session, wherein the previous radio session is associated with a previous set of the characteristics, wherein the previous set of the characteristics matches the current set of the characteristics.

  • Patent number: 10470128
    Abstract: In wireless communications, a station associated with a first wireless network may perform early detection of a high-efficiency (HE) frame for spatial reuse (SR). The station may determine a received power of a legacy preamble of the HE frame when the frame is associated with a second wireless network. The station may reduce the received power by a predetermined value. The station may initiate an SR transmission, when the reduced power is less than an overlapping basic service set (OBSS) packet detection level. The station may obtain an SR parameter associated with a second station, where the SR parameter is based on a transmission power level and an interference level at the second station, and initiate an SR transmission, based on the SR parameter and the reduced power. Other methods, apparatus, and computer-readable media are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10461905
    Abstract: A solution for operating a radio communication apparatus exchanges narrowband control messages with other radio communication apparatuses, each control message comprising a pilot sequence and an identifier identifying a transmitter of the control message. The radio communication apparatus receives a broadband signal through a broadband radio receiver and correlates sub-bands of the received signal so as to detect a narrowband control message within the received broadband signal. Upon detection of the narrowband control message on a sub-band of the received broadband signal, the transmitter of the narrowband control message is determined from the identifier of the narrowband control message. It is also determined from the reception of the narrowband control message on the sub-band that the sub-band is preferred by the transmitter of the narrowband control message, and said sub-band is utilized in data communication with the transmitter of the narrowband control message.

  • Patent number: 10389503
    Abstract: Systems and techniques are disclosed to enhance the efficiency of available bandwidth between UEs and base stations. A UE transmits a sounding reference signal (SRS) to the base station. The base station characterizes the uplink channel based on the SRS received and, using reciprocity, applies the channel characterization for the downlink channel. As part of applying the channel information, the base station forms the beam to the UE based on the uplink channel information obtained from the SRS. The UE may include an array of antennas, each UE transmitting a different SRS that the base station receives and uses to characterize the downlink. Multiple UEs (or a single UE with multiple antennas) transmit SRS at the same time and frequency allocation (non-orthogonal), but with each sending its own unique SRS. Further, multiple UEs (or a single UE with multiple antennas) may send their SRS at unique time/frequency allocations (orthogonal).
