  • Patent number: 11963248
    Abstract: A computer-readable storage medium stores instructions for execution by one or more processors of a UE. The instructions configure the UE for small data transmission (SDT) in a 5G NR network and cause the UE to perform operations comprising detecting while in an RRC_Inactive state, a radio link failure during a first SDT of UL data to a base station. A secure key for a second SDT is generated based on the radio link failure. A configuration message including an indication of the second SDT is transmitted to the base station. A response message including a UL grant is received from the base station. The UL data is encoded for the second SDT using the secure key. The second SDT is performed using the UL grant while the UE is in the RRC_Inactive state.

  • Patent number: 11909920
    Abstract: Systems and methods for selectively routing an unanswered communication session to a voicemail system based at least on a voicemail system identifier (FQDN) mapped to a voicemail pilot number (present within the voicemail routing profile) are described herein. The system generates the voicemail routing profile in response to a provisioning request that identifies one or more messaging services, including a voicemail service, that are to be provided to a user profile. The voicemail profile is stored within a database that is accessed to obtain the voicemail routing profile when a user device registers with a communication network and is associated with the user profile. The system utilizes internal lookup tables and repository functions to identify the voicemail system associated with the user profile and the voicemail routing profile in response to a communication session being unanswered.

  • Patent number: 11876748
    Abstract: A base station may identify an association between a set of physical cell identifiers (PCIs) identifying different transmission reception points (TRPs) and a set of transmission configuration indicator (TCI) states for a user equipment (UE). The base station may transmit a TCI state and PCI association indication to the UE. The UE may receive a downlink transmission using a receive beam associated with a TCI state, and may identify a PCI of the set of PCIs to use to decode the received downlink transmission. In cases where the TCI state used to receive the downlink transmission is associated with multiple PCIs, the UE may select a default PCI from the multiple PCIs, and may decode the received transmission accordingly. In some examples, the UE may receive reference signals from one or more of the serving TRPs and may identify a PCI to use to decode the received reference signals.
