  • Patent number: 10244005
    Abstract: A system and method that allows a mobile device to register for IMS services while the mobile device is roaming in a visited telecommunications network is disclosed. The system receives a request for multiple IMS services from a mobile device while the mobile device is roaming in a foreign network. The system uses an identifier of the foreign network and an associated RAT type to query a policy table containing a list of whitelisted IMS services for the foreign network and associated RAT type. The system processes the requested IMS registrations for services that are whitelisted and does not process requested IMS registrations for services that are not on the whitelist.

  • Patent number: 10244444
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. A user equipment (UE) may receive data from both a source base station and a target base station during handover. For example, the UE may refrain from resetting or reestablishing media access control (MAC) and packet data convergence protocol (PDCP) layer configurations until after a successful access procedure is performed with the target base station. In some cases, a single radio link control (RLC)/PDCP stack may be used during handover procedures. A source base station may, for example, forward data to a target base station after receiving a handover execution message. A UE may identify and resolve any duplicate data sent by both base stations during the transition. Additional signaling may be used (e.g., during the radio resource control (RRC) configuration) to indicate that a UE supports dual link handover.

The base station receives an activation command indicating activation of the PUCCH secondary cell. The base station receives a timing advance command (TAC) for the first TAG. The base station starts transmission of valid channel state information (CSI) via the PUCCH secondary cell in a second subframe occurring a first quantity of subframes after the first subframe. The first quantity of subframes is greater than eight, and is based on a delay from receiving the activation command until the wireless device applies the TAC to uplink transmissions via the first TAG.

  • Patent number: 10200169
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. A base station may broadcast a synchronization signal using a narrowband portion of a bandwidth of a cell. The synchronization signal may include a sequence repeated over several symbol periods using a cover code to support power-efficient cell acquisition. A user equipment (UE) receiving the synchronization signal may determine frequency and timing information for a cell by performing a weighted combination and accumulation of low complexity autocorrelation and cross-correlation procedures on the synchronization signal. The reduced complexity correlation procedures may be enabled based on the use of the cover code and a base sequence. In some cases, the cross-correlation may be performed at multiple sampling rates.

  • Patent number: 10182376
    Abstract: Techniques for handover into eIMTA enabled cells are disclosed. In an aspect, a target cell reconfigures RRC connection with a UE after completed handover to enable eIMTA and/or CoMP for the UE. In another aspect, a target cell includes eIMTA configuration information in a handover command to a UE. In another aspect, the target cell may estimate a virtual cell identity to generate the eIMTA configuration information and delay scheduling transmissions to the UE by flexible subframes until after handover is complete and the correct eIMTA configuration information confirmed by measurement or else corrected by RRC connection reconfiguration. In other aspects, the target cell may determine the correct virtual cell identity before handover, either by measuring SRS of the UE, or by receiving information in a handover request indicating results of CSI-RS measurement, by the UE, of virtual cells of the target cell.
