  • Patent number: 11452009
    Abstract: A communication system is disclosed comprising a gateway and a number of base stations communicating, via the gateway, in accordance with a base station to base station application protocol. The gateway receives a message from a first base station, destined for a second base station. The message comprises (a) information for the second base station, in a first part of the message; and (b) an identifier of the second base station, in a second part of the message other than the first part. The gateway can obtain from the received message the second base station's identifier without the gateway being required to obtain the information from the first part of the message. The gateway routes the message to the second base station identified by the obtained identifier.

  • Patent number: 11405327
    Abstract: A network device includes a transmit buffer from which data is transmitted to a network, and a packet buffer from which data chunks are transmitted to the transmit buffer in response to read requests. The packet buffer has a maximum read latency from receipt of a read request to transmission of a responsive data chunk, and receives read requests including a read request for a first data chunk of a network packet and a plurality of additional read requests for additional data chunks of the network packet. A latency timer monitors elapsed time from receipt of the first read request, and outputs a latency signal when the elapsed time reaches the first maximum read latency. Transmission logic waits until the elapsed time equals the first maximum read latency, and then transmits the first data chunk from the transmit buffer, without regard to a fill level of the transmit buffer.

    Abstract: User equipment (UE) can determine a plurality of Downlink Control Information (DCI) formats that correspond to a plurality of transmission modes supported by a base station. When the UE receives a subframe of a radio frame from the base station, it can perform a blind search at the physical layer for a unique identifier associated with the UE in DCI of the subframe using at least one of the plurality of DCI formats. When the UE determines that the unique identifier was found during the blind search using a particular DCI format, it can identify a particular transmission mode that corresponds to the particular DCI format.

  • Patent number: 11356948
    Abstract: A user equipment (UE) may provide feedback regarding beam pairs used for wake-up signal (WUS) transmissions via uplink resources configured for WUS-based beam management feedback. A correspondence between WUSs and uplink resources for feedback may be semi-statically configured via radio resource control (RRC) signaling, may be dynamically indicated by each WUS, etc. In some examples, uplink resources for different UEs may be distinctive (e.g., UE-specific). In some cases, each beam used to transmit the wake-up message (e.g., each WUS) may have separate uplink resources, or all beams may share the same uplink resource (e.g., or some combination of uplink resources). As such, the UE and base station may identify one or more beams of sufficient quality (e.g., for control channel transmissions during a discontinuous reception (DRX) on-duration) based on the feedback (e.g., beam report) conveyed by the UE via the configured uplink resources for WUS-based fast beam management techniques.
