  • Patent number: 11368336
    Abstract: An apparatus for interfacing with a circuit switched network may be configured to detect when a data carrier signal from a circuit switched network is offline. While the data carrier signal from the circuit switched network is offline, the apparatus may send, to a network element coupled with the circuit switched network via the apparatus, control packets indicating that the data carrier signal is offline. The apparatus may further maintain an active data carrier signal between the apparatus and the network device by sending, to the network element, protocol idle frames. The apparatus may buffer, at the apparatus, packets sent from the network element to the circuit switched network. Once the data carrier signal is restored, the apparatus may send, to the circuit switched network, control packets indicating that the data carrier signal is online and the packet buffered at the apparatus while the data carrier signal is offline.

  • Patent number: 11356566
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for managing quality of service for video streaming, in which a Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) in a Policy Charging Control (PCC) architecture of a telecommunications system receives from a Policy Control Enforcement Function (PCEF) a notification indicating that a video service has started for streaming video content to a user equipment (UE). A first Quality of Service (QoS) setting for streaming the video service to the UE is determined. First QoS setting data identifying the first QoS setting is transmitted to the PCEF. The PCEF transmits a further notification to the PCRF indicating that a particular stage has been reached. The PCRF receives the notification from the PCEF. In response to the further notification, a second QoS setting specifying a lower QoS than the first QoS setting for streaming the video service after the particular stage is determined. The PCRF identifies the second QoS setting to the PCEF.

  • Patent number: 11310023
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. Generally, the described techniques provide for signaling a semi-static configuration for demodulation reference signal (DMRS) bundling across non-uniform bundles of transmission time intervals (TTIs). A base station may transmit control signaling to a user equipment (UE) that schedules resources for DMRSs and associated data channels across the TTIs. For example, the base station may transmit a bundling configuration to the UE that may configure a bundling sequence defining an order for the bundles and a number of TTIs for each bundle. Based on the control signaling, the UE may determine a reference signal bundling pattern for receiving the DMRSs and the associated data channels, where the reference signal bundling pattern may indicate the bundling sequence. The UE may accordingly receive the DMRSs and the associated data channels and perform channel estimation on the data channels.
