  • Patent number: 11388558
    Abstract: In the event that a first user equipment (UE) device is unable to decode a packet received from a base station that provides Point-to-Multipoint (PTM) compatible services to UE devices within a service area (e.g., cell) of the base station, the first UE device transmits a request for retransmission of the packet. In one example, the request for retransmission is transmitted to one or more neighboring UE devices via a device-to-device (D2D) transmission. In response to the request for retransmission, one or more of the neighboring UE devices, which were able to successfully decode the same packet, retransmit the packet to the first UE device via a D2D communication link.
