  • Patent number: 11588719
    Abstract: Excessive latencies and power consumption are avoided when a large number of leaf nodes (LNs) contend simultaneously to join a time slotted channel hopping wireless communication network having a root node (RN) interfaced to LNs by one or more intermediate nodes (INs). A first plurality of shared transmit/receive slots (STRSs) is allocated for at least one IN, and a second plurality of STRSs is advertised for use by contending LNs, where the first plurality is larger than the second plurality. When a LN joins, its STRSs are re-defined such that most become shared transmit-only slots (STOSs) and no STRSs remain. The numbers of STRSs allocated to INs may vary inversely with their hop counts from the RN. One or more STOSs may be added for each of one or more INs in response to a predetermined network condition.

  • Patent number: 11510066
    Abstract: The present technology allows coordination of channels of private wireless networks utilizing shared licensed and unlicensed spectrum. Wireless network operators in an enterprise location register to participate in a consortium and register licensed, shared, and unlicensed spectrum resources to be shared with other members of the consortium. The wireless network operators request an allocation of spectrum resources from the consortium. The consortium generates a radio resource management (“RRM”) plan for shared use of the licensed, shared, and unlicensed spectrum resources. The consortium combines the allocated licensed, shared, and unlicensed spectrum from each of the wireless network operators to meet the target RRM plan. The consortium monitors spectrum utilization to dynamically update the RRM. The consortium monitors spectrum utilization in real time to determine how closely the RRM plan matches the resources allocated to each wireless network operator.
