  • Patent number: 11963106
    Abstract: This application provides an uplink transmit power determining method, a related network device and storage medium. In the method, a terminal determines an uplink transmit power based on the repetition count of the UCI. (uplink control information) it receives from a network device. The repetition count of the UCI on a user side is adaptively configured based on a PL(path loss), an interference the and the low coverage level for a user currently accessing at a high coverage level so that a transmit power of the UCI is controlled and an avalanche effect caused by always selecting full-power uplink transmission is avoided.

  • Patent number: 11956685
    Abstract: System, methods, and computer-readable media for switching a dynamic radio of a single RU between Radio Access Technology (RAT) protocols based on a Software-Defined RAN intelligent controller (SD-RIC). The SD-RIC efficiently assigning RAN resources by converting a radio access point to either 5G or Wi-Fi based on the load conditions and the number of users seen on the network, so that it appropriately servers the customer and end devices. To determine the load conditions may be based on active users on a particular cell, and then the resource utilization cue is a connection latency. A single radio unit includes a primary radio and a secondary radio, each being independently tuned. The primary radio is static while a secondary one can be influenced based on the conditions, turning into N-RU or Wi-Fi.
