  • Patent number: 11122498
    Abstract: A communication system is disclosed in which minimum system information associated with a cell of a radio access network (RAN) is transmitted by a base station. The minimum system information comprises parameters for accessing a cell of the base station, divided into an initial part and a remaining part of the minimum system information. The base station transmits the initial part of the system information via a broadcast channel using a first set of communication resources; transmits information identifying an allocation of at least one further communication resource in a shared channel; and transmits the remaining part of the minimum system information using the at least one further communication resource identified by the allocation.

  • Patent number: 11116041
    Abstract: A wireless access node exchanges data with User Equipment (UE) over a radio band and determines a performance metric for the UE over the radio band. The wireless access node transfers the performance metric to the UE. The UE translates the performance metric into a service instruction for the radio band and transfers the service instruction to the wireless access node. The wireless access node transfers the service instruction to a network controller. The network controller modifies the wireless data service for the wireless UE over the radio band in response to the service instruction.

  • Patent number: 11096107
    Abstract: A method is disclosed for a network node of a cellular communication network adapted for application of an uplink triggered cell handover functionality. The uplink triggered cell handover functionality may comprise initiating a handover when it is determined that an uplink channel performance metric relating to a serving cell falls on a first side of (e.g. is lower than) an uplink handover threshold. The method comprises dynamically restricting application of the uplink triggered cell handover functionality based on whether a restriction criterion is met or not. The restriction criterion is based on at least one of a resource cost of the uplink triggered cell handover functionality and a performance gain of the uplink triggered cell handover functionality.

  • Patent number: 11076270
    Abstract: A wireless access node serves wireless user devices with different services over a common radio channel. The different services are supported by different wireless network slices. The wireless access node determines service subchannels in the radio channel based on location and time. The wireless access node schedules resource blocks from the subchannels for their corresponding services. If a subchannel for one service is full, then the wireless access node schedules the remaining data for the service in the unscheduled resource blocks of the other subchannels if any. The wireless access node wirelessly exchanges data for the services with the wireless user devices over the scheduled resource blocks in the subchannels of the radio channel. The wireless access node exchanges the data with the wireless network slices that support the services.

  • Patent number: 11051352
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A user equipment (UE) may be configured to operate in dual connectivity (DC) and with split radio bearers, such that one or more split radio bearers are associated with a first cell group and one or more split radio bearers are associated with a second cell group. In some cases, a cell group failure may occur. Accordingly, the UE may autonomously update one or more radio bearer configurations of the split radio bearers to determine a processing scheme for the cell group failure. Additionally or alternatively, as a result of the cell group failure, an amount of unacknowledged data in a radio link control (RLC) buffer for the second cell group may get stuck such that the network cannot access it. Accordingly, the UE may perform a PDCP data recovery (e.g., user plane handling) to access the unacknowledged data.
