  • Patent number: 10541921
    Abstract: Embodiments provide a TCAM-based access control list that supports disjunction operations in rules. A network frame is received. Embodiments determine set TCP flags of the network frame.

The search key accesses a second entry stored in a TCAM. The first entry further comprises an encode field to scan a TCP header of the network frame for set TCP flags, a first mask field to a condition corresponding to unset TCP flags to identify in the network frame, a second mask field to a condition corresponding to set TCP flags to identify in the network frame, and an operation field specifying a disjunction operation for comparing the set TCP flags with the first mask field and the second mask field.

  • Patent number: 10498513
    Abstract: Methods for dynamic allocation of reference signals (RS) may be provided. For example, rather than or in addition to using a pre-defined resource element (RE) mapping for determining reference signal locations within a time-frequency grid, a WTRU may receive one or more dynamic indications (e.g., downlink control information received via a physical downlink control channel) that indicate the position of reference signals and/or associate a first reference signal with a second reference signal. For example, the indicated association may indicate that the first and second reference signals were sent by the base station using the same precoder. The association may indicate that first and second reference signals may be used together for channel estimation.
