  • Patent number: 11871274
    Abstract: An apparatus and system for generating KPIs based on packet delay performance measurements through a NG-RAN or 5GC are described. Integrated average UL and DL delays in NG-RAN, gNB DU delays and e2e delays are determined for each sub-network, network slice subnet, and network slice, and for a gNB DU. An overall NR cell DU delay including air interface delay and delay within the NR cell DU, and an overall gNB-CU delay including F1 interface delay and delay within the gNB-CU-UP, are each independently weighted for each gNB and in each direction for the integrated delay KPI in the NG-RAN. The e2e delay KPIs are average UL or DL delays between a UPF and UE(s) for a network slice based on e2e delays for each N-3 and N9 interface weighted by number of packets or data volume of the interface for the corresponding direction.

  • Patent number: 11849013
    Abstract: Techniques for embedding fabric addressing information within Ethernet media access control (MAC) addresses is disclosed herein and allows a multi-node fabric having potentially millions of nodes to feature Ethernet encapsulation without the necessity of a lookup or map to translate MAC addresses to fabric-routable local identifiers (LIDs). In particular, a locally-administered MAC address may be encoded with fabric addressing information including a LID. Thus a node may exchange Ethernet packets using a multi-node fabric by encapsulating each Ethernet packet with a destination MAC address corresponding to an intended destination. As the destination MAC address may implicitly map to a LID of the multi-node fabric, the node may use an extracted LID value therefrom to address a fabric-routable packet. To this end, a node may introduce a fabric-routable packet encapsulating an Ethernet packet onto a multi-node fabric without necessarily performing a lookup to map a MAC address to a corresponding LID.

  • Patent number: 11812305
    Abstract: A method and system for controlling uplink communication from a user equipment device (UE) that has at least two co-existing air-interface connections including a first air-interface connection with a first access node and a second air-interface connection with a second access node. An example method includes comparing a level of antenna pattern efficiency associated with the first air-interface connection with a level of antenna pattern efficiency associated with the second air-interface connection and, based at least on the comparing, configuring an uplink split ratio defining a distribution of uplink user-plane data flow of the UE between at least the first air-interface connection and the second air-interface connection. In an example implementation, this could involve configuring one of the air-interface connections as a primary uplink path to which the UE restricts its uplink communication unless and until a trigger occurs for transitioning the UE to operate in an split-uplink mode.

  • Patent number: 11778588
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. Generally, the described techniques provide for determining shared resources associated with one or more user equipments (UEs) for sidelink communications, including control resources and data resources. A first UE may transmit a sidelink request to reserve a subset of data resources to a second UE, and may monitor for one or more sidelink responses indicating a positive sidelink response to the sidelink request, a negative sidelink response to the sidelink request, or both. The second UE may transmit a positive sidelink response if it is available for a data transmission. A third UE may transmit a negative sidelink response if it objects to the data transmission. The first UE may determine, based on monitoring for the one or more sidelink responses, whether to transmit a sidelink confirmation indicating a reservation of the subset of the data resources to the second UE.
