  • Patent number: 11916712
    Abstract: Method and apparatus to use different GI sequences for different FDM UEs. The apparatus calculates a GI of each UE from a set of UEs based at least on a delay spread associated with each UE from the set of UEs. The apparatus multiplexes data and the GI of each respective UE from the set of UEs to generate a waveform. The apparatus transmits the waveform to the set of UEs. The apparatus may receive, from each UE from the set of UEs, the delay spread associated with each UE from the set of UEs. The apparatus may multiplex the GI of each respective UE from the set of UEs prior to performing a DFT operation on the GI and the data. The apparatus may multiplex the GI of each respective UE from the set of UEs after performing an IDFT operation to generate the waveform.

  • Patent number: 11909524
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. Generally, the described techniques provide for efficiently retransmitting radio link control (RLC) protocol data units (PDUs) to one or more UEs. When a user equipment (UE) fails to receive or decode an RLC PDU transmitted by a base station, the UE may transmit a status PDU to the base station indicating that the UE failed to receive or decode the RLC PDU. The base station may receive the status PDU from the UE, and the base station may generate a repair PDU that includes redundant bits of the lost PDU (e.g., the PDU that the UE failed to receive or decode). The base station may then transmit the repair PDU to the UE, and the UE may use the redundant bits in the repair PDU (e.g., in combination with buffered PDUs) to attempt to correctly decode the lost PDU.
