  • Patent number: 10805978
    Abstract: A system, device and methodology for releasing a connection between user equipment (UE) and a node in a communications network is disclosed. The method includes, at the UE, responsive to an application layer indication that no further data is expected by the UE, receiving a RRC connection release message from the node and transmitting, from the UE, a radio link control (RLC) status message using RLC acknowledged mode (AM) to the node. An early connection release timer at the UE and node based on RLC AM parameters for a signal radio bearer (SRB) is started and upon expiry of the early connection release timer, the node releases the RRC connection. This obviates the need to wait a full 10 s per the 3GPP standard to release the connection during periods of poor radio connectivity, and reduces power consumption at the UE.

  • Patent number: 10805056
    Abstract: A wireless local area network station (STA) changes a receiver operating mode (ROM) and saves power by influencing when a ROM-conforming access point (AP) transmission takes place. The STA evaluates candidate delay regimes after a negotiation exchange with the STA. The STA then instructs the AP of a selected delay regime which the AP is permitted to use when transmitting data according to the changed ROM. The ROM can involve a change in the system bandwidth demodulated by the STA and/or the number of spatial streams demodulated by the STA. The delay regime can allow the AP to transmit with little or no delay based on the changed ROM, or the delay regime may require a fixed time delay before the AP transmits according to the changed ROM.
