  • Patent number: 10735219
    Abstract: A communications network comprises a plurality of participants. A first participant transmits a message repeating sequence of N?2 successive messages to a second participant. An action which can be performed by the second participant is assigned to each message in the sequence. The first participant begins to transmit one of the N messages at N successive transmission times T_I (I=O, . . . , N?1). Each of the N messages contains a field defining a waiting time. The second participant selects one message from among the messages in the sequence which are successfully received by the second participant as a useful message, measures a time elapsed since reception of the useful message, and performs the action assigned to the useful message when the elapsed time has reached the assigned waiting time.

  • Patent number: 10735156
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. A user equipment (UE) may indicate to a base station the number of uplink (UL) component carriers (CCs) that the UE is capable of supporting. A base station may configure the UE for carrier aggregation (CA) and for one or more auxiliary UL CCs. The CA configuration may include CCs for UL data transmissions and the auxiliary UL configuration may include CCs for UL reference signals or random access channel transmissions. The auxiliary UL CCs may thus be used for sounding reference signal (SRS) transmissions even if the UE is otherwise not configured for UL data transmissions on those CCs. UL data transmissions on the CA carriers may be sent at the same time as SRS transmissions or during different transmission time intervals (TTIs), depending on UE capability.

  • Patent number: 10728154
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to the communications field, and specifically, to a flow table processing method and an apparatus. The method includes: monitoring, by a switch, a flow table load of the switch; when the flow table load of the switch exceeds a preset threshold, determining, by the switch, a diffusion target of a target data flow according to a matching rule of a diffusive flow table; and when the determined diffusion target is a neighboring switch of the switch, forwarding, by the switch, the target data flow to the neighboring switch. When the flow table load of the switch exceeds the preset threshold, the switch may have been attacked. A data flow that fails to be matched to a flow entry is forwarded to the neighboring switch according to a diffusion probability, for processing by the neighboring switch.
