  • Patent number: 11470659
    Abstract: Examples provide a system and method for initiating contactless communication sessions between computing devices using a variety of modalities. A user pre-registers a selected modality for triggering session initiation. A session initiation device generates trigger data based on a detected occurrence of a predetermined event corresponding to a user selected modality, such as, but not limited to, biometric data, a unique user identifier (ID), a vehicle identifier, or any other type of modality. The trigger data is mapped to a mobile device ID. The mobile device ID can be requested from a connection server. The communication session is established between the first computing device and the mobile user device using the mobile device identifier. The computing device transmits data to the mobile user device via the established communication session when the computing device is brought into proximity to the mobile user device.

  • Patent number: 11457435
    Abstract: A system and method for providing both localized and distributed transmission modes for EPDCCH is disclosed, where one EPDCCH comprises of one or multiple CCEs. Localized versus distributed transmission may be defined in terms of the EPDCCH to CCE resource mapping. In a localized transmission CCEs are restricted to be contained within one PRB. In a distributed transmission a CCE spans over multiple PRBs. A UE can be configured to either receive the EPDCCH only in localized or only in distributed transmissions. A UE can also be configured to expect EPDCCH transmissions in both localized and distributed transmissions. In each PRB configured by the higher layer as an EPDCCH resource, 24 REs that may be used for any DMRS transmission are always reserved and not used for EPDCCH transmission.
