  • Patent number: 12003987
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to methods for operating a network node, as well as corresponding network nodes, computer programs, computer program products, and computer-readable media. The method comprises attempting to obtain a scheduled uplink transmission from a transmitter. In response to successful decoding at the network node of the scheduled uplink transmission, it is concluded that the uplink transmission is not skipped by the transmitter. In response to unsuccessful decoding at the network node of the scheduled uplink transmission and a signal strength measurement for the attempt to obtain the scheduled uplink transmission being below a threshold, it is concluded that the uplink transmission is skipped by the transmitter. In response to unsuccessful decoding at the network node of the scheduled uplink transmission and the signal strength measurement for the attempt to obtain the scheduled uplink transmission exceeding the threshold, rescheduling of the uplink transmission is performed.

  • Patent number: 11963136
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. In some cases, a sidelink user equipment (UE) operating in a power saving mode may identify a resource reservation configuration for communicating within a resource pool allocated for sidelink communications. The UE may operate in a first power state of the power saving mode during a sensing window. The sensing window may correspond to a resource selection window of the resource pool. The UE may transition, after the sensing window, from the first power state to a second power state that may consume more power than the first power state. The UE may identify a subset of resources of the resource pool in the resource selection window that are available for sidelink transmission by the UE based on transitioning between the first power state and the second power state.

  • Patent number: 11956671
    Abstract: A 5G network having a multi-path transport protocol (MPTP) proxy external to the user plane function (UPF). The session management function (SMF) provides address information of the external MPTP proxy to user equipment (UE) and distributes access traffic steering, switching, and splitting (ATSSS)-related rules to the UE, the UPF, and the external MPTP proxy. The external MPTP proxy receives, from the UPF, (i) 3GPP uplink data transmitted by the UE via a 3GPP radio access network (RAN) and (ii) non-3GPP uplink data transmitted by the UE via a non-3GPP RAN, combines the 3GPP and non-3GPP uplink data to form network uplink data for a data network. The external MPTP proxy also divides received network downlink data into 3GPP downlink data and non-3GPP downlink data, and provides the 3GPP and non-3GPP downlink data to the UPF for transmission to the UE via the 3GPP RAN and the non-3GPP RAN, respectively.
