  • Patent number: 10355801
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are various embodiments that include a method and a passive optical network (PON) for supporting a mobile network. In various embodiments, a baseband unit (BBU) is configured to measure an optical path delay from each remote radio unit (RRU) of a plurality of RRUs to the BBU during an initialization phase. The BBU synchronizes all the RRUs in the mobile system by adjusting the timing of each path based on the optical path delay between each RRU and the BBU. The BBU determines a mapping rule that maps each resource block assigned to each RRU of the plurality of RRUs to a different PON transport block. The BBU transmits the mapping rule to each RRU of the plurality of RRUs. In certain embodiments, the mapping rule may be recalculated dynamically after the initialization phase.

  • Patent number: 10327230
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a wireless communication system. More particularly, the present invention relates to a method for transmitting acknowledgement/negative ACK (ACK/NACK) in a wireless communication system which supports carrier aggregation, and to an apparatus for the method. A method in which a terminal transmits ACK/NACK in a wireless communication system that supports carrier aggregation comprises the following steps: receiving one or more physical downlink shared channels (PDSCHs); and transmitting ACK/NACK for said one or more PDSCHs via a physical uplink control channel (PUCCH). A PUCCH format for transmitting ACK/NACK is selected by taking the type of the carrier in which said one or more PDSCHs are received into account.

  • Patent number: 10313229
    Abstract: Systems and techniques are described for path selection. A packet can be transparently intercepted at an intermediary device. Next, the intermediary device may modify one or more bits in the header of the packet. The intermediary device can then forward the packet to the next hop device. In some network configurations, the modifications to the one or more bits in the header of the packet may cause a downstream device to select a path that is different from the path that would have been selected by the downstream device if the one or more bits in the header of the packet had not been modified. A path selection policy can be used to determine whether or not one or more bits in the header of the packet are to be modified.
