  • Patent number: 10993137
    Abstract: A system can facilitate assigning guaranteed bitrate (GBR) admission control thresholds in a network with multiple network slices serving multiple GBR services. Thus, each network slice can optionally have its own dedicated GBR admission. For example, based on a requested service, the system can compare a received quality indicator to a threshold value to determine if a bearer shall be admitted in accordance with dedicated GBR admission control region within its slice. If the slice does not have its own GBR admission control region or if its threshold is reached the system can compare the received quality indicator to another threshold value to determine if the bearer shall be admitted in accordance with a common GBR admission control region.

  • Patent number: 10985858
    Abstract: This application relates to the mobile communications field, and in particular, to a random access technology in a wireless communications system. This application provides a method for sending a random access preamble sequence, an apparatus, and a system. In this solution, a terminal device obtains a cyclic shift value that satisfies a high-speed movement scenario and sends a random access preamble sequence corresponding to the cyclic shift value. Impact brought by the high-speed movement scenario is considered when the random access preamble sequence is determined, thereby avoiding interference between terminal devices in the high-speed scenario.

  • Patent number: 10979274
    Abstract: Methods and an apparatus for performing synchronization in New Radio (NR) systems are disclosed. A frequency band may be determined and may correspond to a WTRU. On a condition that the operational frequency band is a lower frequency, a synchronization signal block (SSB) index may be implicitly. On a condition that the operational frequency band is a higher frequency, an SSB index may be determined based on a hybrid method which includes determining the SSB index using both an implicit and an explicit method. A configuration of actually transmitted SSBs may be determined using a multi-level two stage compressed indication where SSB groups are determined based on a coarse indicator and actually transmitted SSBs with the SSB groups are determined based on a fine indicator.

  • Patent number: 10958475
    Abstract: A repeater device in a communication network includes a microcomputer configured to determine whether the repeater device will function as a mirroring switch that generates and transfers a mirror frame, or as a mirror-transfer switch that transfers the mirror frame. When the repeater device functions as a mirror switch and performs port mirroring, the repeater device adds monitor port and destination port information of the mirroring switch to the mirror frame. When the repeater device functions as a mirror-transfer switch, the repeater device adds sender port and destination port information of the mirror-transfer switch to the mirror frame. A monitor device in the communication network uses information in the mirror frame to identify a mirror source device in the network.

  • Patent number: 10911349
    Abstract: This disclosure provides systems, methods, and apparatuses for dynamically changing a primary communication link on which wireless devices contend for access to a shared wireless medium. An access point (AP) may monitor the channel conditions on a primary link and one or more secondary links of a multi-link environment, and may signal a change in the primary link (such as to one of the secondary links) when one or more conditions are satisfied. The primary and secondary links may be assigned on a per-client basis. Thus, the primary or secondary links of a particular STA may be different than those of other STAs associated with the same AP. In some aspects, each STA may monitor the channel conditions on its own primary and secondary links, and may signal a change in its primary link (such as to one of its secondary links) when one or more conditions are met.

  • Patent number: 10904920
    Abstract: A wireless device initiates an Up-Link Trigger Based Multi-User communication by transmitting a trigger frame. The communication may be an Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access communication. The trigger frame includes allocation information for resources of the communication, including Random Access (RA) allocation information. The trigger frame may also include a padding field after the allocation information. A length of the padding field is determined according to an amount of time needed for a station receiving the trigger frame to process the RA allocation information. The amount of time may correspond to a time between an end of a last RA allocation information and an end of a Physical layer Protocol Data Unit including the trigger frame. The amount of time may be determined according to a maximum processing time of stations associated with the wireless device, or may be determined according to a predetermined interval.

  • Patent number: 10771198
    Abstract: The described technology is generally directed towards adaptively selecting a repetition level in wireless communications, based on events to improve coverage range via the repetition level while not unnecessarily reducing throughput. One such event can include a current signal-to-noise-ratio, e.g., as reported in a channel quality indicator report from a user equipment. Another such event can comprise a number of consecutive hybrid automatic repeat request acknowledgments or negative acknowledgments (HARQ ACKS/NACKS), in which consecutive ACKs tend to indicate good signal quality, while consecutive NACKs tend to indicate poor signal quality. A combination of channel quality indicator-based adaptive repetition level and HARQ ACK/NACK-based adaptive repetition level can be employed.
