  • Patent number: 11956786
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. A user equipment (UE) may identify uplink (UL) control information (UCI) to transmit during a subframe. The UE may then select a UL channel on which to transmit the UCI based on whether a shared data and control UL channel employs contention-based scheduling. For example, multiple UEs could contend for access to the same semi-persistently scheduled (SPS) physical UL shared channel (PUSCH). Each UE may utilize a different demodulation reference (DMRS) signal cyclic shift to identify their transmissions. In some cases, some UCI, such as channel state information (CSI), may be transmitted on a contention-based PUSCH, while other UCI, such as acknowledgement information, may be transmitted on a physical uplink control channel (PUCCH). In some cases, the channel selection may be based on a configuration received from a base station.

  • Patent number: 11956833
    Abstract: A communication apparatus in the present disclosure comprises an AID generator, a Trigger frame generator, and a wireless transmitter/receiver. When a Trigger Type in a trigger frame is an RA trigger, the AID generator (103) generates, as information for an AID12 subfield, information that is different from an AID. The Trigger frame generator (104) generates a RA variant Trigger frame when the Trigger Type in the trigger frame is an RA trigger, and sets, in the AID12 subfield included in the RA variant Trigger frame, the information output from the AID generator (103). The wireless transmitter/receiver (106) transmits the Trigger frame, generated by the Trigger frame generator (104), to a terminal (200).

  • Patent number: 11956648
    Abstract: The present invention relates to commissioning in the presence of multiple networks. A network node, which is expected to join a second network, joins a first network and enters a second state from a first state once it has joined the first network. Once it has received from the first network a message to leave it, it enters a third state from the second state. The network node entered the third state becomes responsive with respect to the first network and/or the second network by receiving a dedicated message to join network or is unresponsive with respect to the first network. Then, it enters the first state from the third state once the network node has received the dedicated message from a coordinator of the first network after closing the first network and/or from a coordinator of the second network, or upon expiry of a timer.
