  • Patent number: 10708748
    Abstract: Techniques to support emergency voice-over-Internet Protocol (VoIP) calls are described. The techniques may be used for various 3GPP and 3GPP2 networks, various location architectures, and various types of User Equipment (UE). A UE communicates with a visited network to send a request to establish an emergency VoIP call. The UE interacts with a location server instructed by the visited network to obtain a first position estimate for the UE. The UE performs call setup via the visited network to establish the emergency VoIP call with a PSAP, which may be selected based on the first position estimate. The UE may thereafter perform positioning with the location server to obtain an updated position estimate for the UE, e.g., if requested by the PSAP.

  • Patent number: 10708311
    Abstract: The present invention moves service control, including call control, for a user element from a cellular network to a multimedia subsystem (MS), such as the Internet Protocol (IP) Multimedia Subsystem (IMS). Call control is provided by the MS irrespective of whether the user element is using cellular or WLAN access for the call. Call control for originating and terminating calls in the CS or MS as well as transferring calls between a circuit-switched subsystem (CS) and MS is anchored at a continuity control function (CCF) in the MS. All call signaling for the call is passed through the CCF. The CCF is a service provided in the user element's home MS and anchors the user element's active CS calls and MS sessions to enable active roaming across the CS and MS.

  • Patent number: 10686628
    Abstract: Embodiments of an access point (AP), station (STA) and method of sounding are generally described herein. The AP may transmit, during a transmission opportunity (TXOP), a trigger frame (TF) to indicate that an STA is to transmit an uplink sounding packet during an uplink sounding period of the TXOP. The AP may attempt to detect the uplink sounding packet during the uplink sounding period. If the uplink sounding packet is not detected during the uplink sounding period, the AP may transmit a recovery packet to cause other STAs to determine a busy condition during the uplink sounding period. If the uplink sounding packet is detected during the uplink sounding period, the AP may determine a channel estimate for the STA based at least partly on the uplink sounding packet.
