  • Patent number: 10812344
    Abstract: A system and method of executing a corrective action in response to detecting a particular pattern in a performance level of a wireless connection is disclosed. A prior performance level associated with a wireless connection and a current performance level associated with the wireless connection are determined. The current performance level is determined to be lower than the prior performance level. Responsive to determining that the current performance level is lower than the prior performance level, a corrective action is selected from a set of corrective actions, and the selected corrective action is executed.

  • Patent number: 10791546
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices are described for wireless communication at a device. A wireless device may be configured with a transmission time interval (TTI) bundling parameter. The device may then identify one or more resources for an uplink (UL) control channel based on the TTI bundling parameter (e.g., using either an implicit or an explicit indication from another wireless node such as a serving cell of a base station) and transmit the UL control channel using the identified resources. The device may also identify a downlink control information (DCI) format based on the TTI bundling parameter. For example, a resource allocation granularity level may be associated with the bundling parameter, and the length of a DCI field may depend on the resource allocation granularity level.

  • Patent number: 10779280
    Abstract: A small base station executes radio communication using multiple antennas. There are set multiple antenna groups that each include all or a portion of the antennas and multiple antenna group patterns that each include at least one of the antenna groups. The small base station transmits reference signals with sequences that differ from one another between antenna groups that are included in the same antenna group pattern. A user apparatus receives the reference signals. Based on a reception result of the reference signals, a use antenna group pattern and at least one use antenna group that are to be used for transmission of a radio signal from the small base station are determined.

  • Patent number: 10764208
    Abstract: A distributed switch architecture supports very high bandwidth applications. For instance, the distributed switch architecture may be implemented for cloud networks. The architecture scales by organizing traffic management components into tiled structures with distributed buffering. The tile structures are replicated and interconnected to perform transfers from ingress to egress using an interconnect bandwidth scheduling algorithm. Bandwidth scaling may be achieved by adding more tiles to achieve higher bandwidth. The interconnect in the architecture may be swapped out depending on implementation parameters, e.g., physical efficiency.

  • Patent number: 10727933
    Abstract: Disclosed is a satellite communication system that allocates bandwidth to maximize the capacity of the communication system while providing service to geographical areas having different demands. A smaller portion of the frequency spectrum can be allocated for subscriber beams that supply service to low demand areas. A larger portion of the frequency spectrum can be provided to subscriber beams that provide access to high demand areas. Allocation of bandwidth can be determined by the amount of demand in low demand areas versus the amount of demand in high demand areas. High demand gateways are physically located in low demand subscriber beams, while low demand gateways are physically located in high demand subscriber beams, which prevents interference.

  • Patent number: 10680922
    Abstract: A communication control apparatus connected to a content-oriented network includes a transmitter, a receiver, a memory, and a processor. The transmitter transmits an interest packet requesting a plurality of pieces of content. The receiver receives a first data packet including (i) a first piece of content, which is one of the pieces of content, and (ii) first PIT information representing a name of a second piece of content, which is another of the pieces of content and which has not been transmitted from a transmission source. The memory stores a transmission PIT in which names of the pieces of content are registered. The processor registers, in response to transmission of the interest packet, the names of the pieces of content registered in the transmission PIT, and deletes, in response to reception of the first data packet, a name of the first piece of content from the transmission PIT.

  • Patent number: 10681573
    Abstract: A system described herein may provide a mechanism for identifying unique sources of interference in a wireless telecommunication network. A unique noise signature, associated with a particular source of radio frequency (“RF”) interference, may be identified by detecting physical resource blocks (“PRBs”), in a sector, that exhibit excessive interference, as compared to surrounding PRBs. The unique noise signature may be detected across multiple sectors, and a location of the interference source may be determined. Corrective action may be taken once an interference source is detected, such as by ceasing to utilize, or by reducing the utilization of, affected PRBs.

  • Patent number: 10499351
    Abstract: A controller having access to channel information associated with a neighboring access point (AP) may communicate a mask to a served user equipment (UE). The mask may specify transmission parameters for an uplink transmission between the served UE and a serving AP such that a successful decoding probability of the uplink transmission at the neighboring AP exceeds a threshold. The mask may specify a maximum MCS level for the uplink transmission, a minimum transmit power level for the uplink transmission, and/or a precoder constraint for the uplink transmission that produces constructive interference at a spatial location of the neighboring AP. This may enable the neighboring AP to isolate the uplink transmission from uplink wireless signals using an interference cancellation technique, e.g., successive interference cancellation (SIC) techniques.
