  • Patent number: 11032828
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A base station may signal an indication to designate resources in a slot for uplink and downlink communications with a user equipment (UE). In some cases, resources may further be designated for one or more inactive durations within the slot, where the UE enters an inactive state and the base station refrains from communicating with the UE during the inactive duration(s). Accordingly, the UE may suspend communications with the base station, enter a sleep-mode operation, refrain from monitoring downlink channels, or a combination thereof. The base station may signal this designation of resources via semi-persistent signaling, dynamic signaling, or combinations thereof. Additionally, the designation of resources may be indicated by slot format indices in a slot format table or a slot format indicator table, where the resources in the slot may include the designations of the inactive durations.

  • Patent number: 11012315
    Abstract: Embodiments herein describe techniques for creating a lightweight snapshot of a network fabric without having to capture snapshots at a predefined interval. Instead, the snapshot system uses a data store to capture state changes to network objects in the network fabric. Because the data store captures these state changes (along with timestamps indicating when these changes occurred), the snapshot system can retroactively generate snapshots of the network fabric at any desired time. In one embodiment, the snapshot system includes an event detector that determines when to capture snapshots. Once an event is identified by the event detector, the snapshot system can use the historical changes in the data store to retroactively generate a first snapshot to capture the overall state of the network fabric before the event and a second snapshot to capture the overall state of the network fabric after the event.

  • Patent number: 10958395
    Abstract: The present disclosure discloses a method and a system for transmitting DFT-s-OFDM symbols. A data sequence for transmitting as an OFDM symbol is received as input from a data source. A reference sequence for transmitting along with the data sequence as the OFDM symbol is generated and time-multiplexed with the data sequence, to generate a multiplexed sequence. Thereafter, a Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) operation is performed on the multiplexed sequence to generate a DFT-spread-Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (DFT-s-OFDM) symbol that is further processed for transmitting over a channel. The transmission of the reference sequence and the data sequence in a single OFDM symbol provides better bandwidth utilization and flexibility in modulation of the reference sequence and the data sequence.

  • Patent number: 10952132
    Abstract: When a sub6 user equipment (UE) device is in a millimeter wave (mmW) cell coverage, the sub6 UE device can improperly display a 5G+ icon based on a long term evolution (LTE) anchor cell. However, if the sub6 UE device moves to an area comprising a sub6 cell, when the sub6 UE device is on the LTE cell, the sub6 UE device can utilize the sub6 cell and thus properly display the 5G icon, due to the 5G availability on the sub6 band. Additionally, when the sub6 UE device transitions to a mmW and sub6 area, then the 5G icon can also be appropriately displayed because the sub6 UE device can utilize the sub6 cell from the LTE anchor cell even if the sub6 UE device cannot utilize another mmW cell.
