  • Patent number: 10331569
    Abstract: A router that requests a reservation for an egress port prior to dequeuing a received packet. A reservation is granted only if there is space on the egress port for at least a maximum size packet. An ingress processor requests allocation of a packet buffer. An allocator grants the packet buffer, but if there are fewer than a threshold number of buffers available, the ingress processor will not accept the grant unless the received packet is to be routed to a port inside the device comprising the router. This conserves the packet buffer(s) for packets destined for locations within the device. After a reservation is obtained and a packet buffer has been accepted, the ingress processor begins dequeuing a received packet from an ingress port queue to the buffer, and provides an identifier of the buffer to an egress processor. The identifier is enqueued by the egress processor. After the identifier is dequeued, the egress processor copies the packet from the buffer to an egress queue and releases the buffer.

  • Patent number: 10271347
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for requesting uplink resources by a user equipment in a communication system, wherein a DRX, Discontinued Reception, function is running at the user equipment. The transmission of a scheduling request for requesting uplink resources to a radio base station is triggered upon triggering of a buffer status report in the user equipment. However, the triggering of the scheduling request is delayed such that the scheduling request is triggered in one of the subframes—preferably the first subframe—of an On-Duration period of a DRX cycle according to the DRX function. Correspondingly, the triggered scheduling request is transmitted to the radio base station in the next possible scheduling request transmission occasion after the triggering of the scheduling request is delayed.

  • Patent number: 10251067
    Abstract: Periodic Radio Resource Management (RRM) reporting from user equipments (UEs) is beneficial for a network to efficiently select a carrier with a cleaner channel to serve the UEs. To enable periodic RRM reporting from UEs, periodic beacon signal transmission for UE measurements is necessary. However, in a shared spectrum, precise periodic transmission cannot be guaranteed due to channel contention. A method of transmission with periodic time windows for beacon signal transmission is proposed to resolve potential issues. Under the proposed solution, beacon signal can be transmitted in a certain periodic fashion without frequent physical layer signaling. Furthermore, periodic beacon signal transmission for measurements can be kept with low transmission failure rate due to channel contention.
