  • Patent number: 10833812
    Abstract: Facilitating configurable hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) feedback types for new radio sidelink communication can be performed for a 5G wireless network. Based on whether reception of data was successful or not, a reception node can send acknowledgement (ACK) data or negative acknowledgement (NACK) data to a base station using an uplink control signal. Therefore, the feedback data can be used to manage subsequent resource allocation decisions within the 5G wireless network.

  • Patent number: 10820231
    Abstract: A mobility management node in a wireless network receives message data from an Internet of Things (IoT) device. The mobility management node obtains a non-Internet Protocol (IP) Access Point Name (APN) associated with the message data, and extracts Class of Service (CoS) and/or Quality of Service (QoS) indicators embedded in the non-IP APN. The mobility management node queues and prioritizes the message data, among other message data, based on the extracted CoS and QoS indicators. The mobility management node dequeues and forwards the message data, among the other message data, from the mobility management node to a Service Capability Exposure Function (SCEF) node based on the extracted CoS and QoS indicators.

  • Patent number: 10708144
    Abstract: In general, the disclosure describes techniques for evaluating application quality of experience metrics over a software-defined wide area network. For instance, a network device may receive an application data packet of a data flow. In response to receiving the application data packet, the network device determines whether a packet size of the application data packet is represented in a reference data store. In response to determining that the packet size is not represented in the reference data store, the network device predicts, based on the reference data store, flow metrics for the packet size for each of a plurality of Wide Area Network (WAN) links. The network device selects a WAN link on which to send the application data packet based on the predicted flow metrics.

  • Patent number: 10687323
    Abstract: Embodiments of beamformed physical downlink control channel (B-PDCCH) are generally described herein. A user equipment (UE) decodes an indication of a transmission mode for a beamformed physical downlink control channel (B-PDCCH) received from a network entity. The UE decodes one or more symbol blocks corresponding to a downlink (DL) control region of a subframe, wherein the DL control region includes one or more control clusters, and wherein one discrete Fourier transform (DFT) spreading window is applied in each of the one or more control clusters. The UE determines a B-PDCCH search space according to the indicated transmission mode, wherein the B-PDCCH search space is a set of B-PDCCH candidate locations. The UE performs blind decoding of one or more B-PDCCHs based on the determined B-PDCCH search space, to obtain downlink control information transmitted from one or more evolved NodeBs (eNBs) to the UE via the one or more B-PDCCHs.

  • Patent number: 10644745
    Abstract: In order to reduce interference between cells through hopping and use frequencies in a good propagation situation, a scheduler section carries out scheduling for determining to which user data should be sent using CQI from each communication terminal apparatus, selects a user signal to be sent in the next frame and determines in which subcarrier block the data should be sent. An MCS decision section selects a modulation scheme and coding method from the CQI of the selected user signal. A subcarrier block selection section selects a subcarrier block instructed by the scheduler section 102 for each user signal. For the respective subcarrier blocks, FH sequence selection sections select hopping patterns. A subcarrier mapping section maps the user signal and control data to subcarriers according to the selected hopping pattern.
