  • Patent number: 12035296
    Abstract: A wireless device receives a system information block (SIB) comprising a value of a scheduling request (SR) delay timer. The wireless device receives, in a radio resource control (RRC) connected state, an RRC message comprising a parameter indicating the SR delay timer is applied to a logical channel. The wireless device initiates a small data transmission (SDT) procedure in an RRC inactive state, wherein at least one radio bearer, associated with the logical channel, is configured for the SDT procedure. The wireless device, in response to triggering, during the SDT procedure, buffer status reporting (BSR) for the logical channel, start the SR delay timer based on the parameter indicating the SR delay timer is applied to the logical channel and the value of the SIB.

  • Patent number: 12035367
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are disclosed for a UE and its serving base station in 5G NR systems to signal channel scan or channel sensing to allow channel occupancy time (COT) sharing before transmissions. The COT sharing may be initiated by the base station or by the UE by asserting a CCA indication to enable channel sensing by a UE or base station, respectively. When the UE receives and decodes the asserted CCA indication during downlink transmission, the UE may perform channel sensing during a short interframe space (SIFS) between the downlink transmission and a scheduled uplink transmission. When the UE detects that the sensed RF energy across an intended transmission band is greater than an energy detect threshold, the UE may refrain from transmitting during the scheduled uplink transmission. Otherwise or when the CCA indication is de-asserted, the UE may transmit during the scheduled uplink transmission without performing channel sensing.
