  • Patent number: 10742360
    Abstract: Techniques and examples of layer mapping, channel state information (CSI) feedback and hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) feedback in mobile communications are described. A user equipment (UE) receives from a base station one or more reference signals, which may be non-zero power (NZP) or zero power (ZP), on one or more time-frequency resources indicated by a network via a communication link between the UE and the base station. The UE estimates, based on the receiving, a subspace spanned by a channel response of an interfering signal. The UE determines a precoding matrix indicator (PMI) based on the estimated subspace. The UE transmits to the base station a channel state information (CSI) feedback comprising at least the PMI. The PMI may include at least a first precoder and a second precoder.

  • Patent number: 10652131
    Abstract: A programmable logic device, such as a field programmable gate array (FPGA), is disclosed that allows for both high speed and low speed signal processing using the existing high speed transceiver. The programmable logic of the device may be programmed to include a sampling logic block that determines the low speed bit patterns from a device under test (DUT). The logic may further include a bit replication logic block that replicates bits such that the output of the device's high speed transceiver looks like a low speed signal to the DUT. The device, therefore, can communicate with the DUT at both the high and low speeds without the need for intermediate hardware.

  • Patent number: 10652762
    Abstract: Enhanced quality of service of a cellular radio access network is provided by monitoring the operation of the network for predicting failures. For each of the predicted failures, a proactive maintenance plan is created and an alternative network configuration determined, in which alternative network configuration the impact of the planned maintenance operations is less than in the current (non-alternative) network configuration. Additionally, timing of the maintenance operations is decided based on a network traffic estimate and the network is automatically reconfigured into the alternative network configuration prior to the selected maintenance operation time. According to an embodiment, the object is achieved by means of a Pre-emptive Maintenance Node (PEM) connected to the telecommunications network, such as to an LTE or LTE-A network.
