  • Patent number: 11362783
    Abstract: Techniques for transmitting reference signals (RSs) having respective signal patterns in the coding chain to improve performance of multiple input, multiple output (MIMO) communication systems are presented. For downlink transmissions, an RS management component (RSMC) of a network node can determine a first resource element (RE) pattern for RSs of a first cell and a second RE pattern for RSs of a second cell in the time, frequency, or code domain. RSMC can utilize an adaptive interleaver in the coding chain to improve performance of MIMO systems. RSMC can facilitate configuring user equipment (UE) about the interleaver at the RE domain or as part of virtual resource block (VRB)-to-physical resource block (PRB) domain. RSMC can thereby reduce interference on RSs from other co-channel RSs, thereby improving channel estimation performance for channel-state-information estimation and data detection by the UE, and achieving significant gains in link and system throughputs.

  • Patent number: 11357019
    Abstract: A telecommunication system and a method for generating a real time connection between a first endpoint and a second endpoint in an IP network using an ICE STUN connectivity check follow a procedure that includes the steps of generating a list of possible connection paths between the first endpoint and the second endpoint, establishing a respective priority for each possible connection path included in the list, and generating the real time connection between the first endpoint and the second endpoint. During this procedure first there is an attempt to generate the real time connection using the highest-priority connection path. If this is not possible, then the system attempts to establish the real connection using the connection path with the next highest priority, until the real time connection is actually established. Furthermore, for each possible connection path, its respective quality-of-service value is determined and is considered when establishing its priority on the list.
