  • Patent number: 10411987
    Abstract: Provided are a signaling monitoring method and system. In the method, multi-path network signalings are accessed, and one or multiple key control signalings are acquired from the acquired multi-path network signalings; the one or multiple key control signalings are analyzed to acquire and share whole-network key control information; and the multi-path network signalings are managed and distributed by utilizing the acquired whole-network key control information. Since each access point has an identical whole-network control table consisting of the whole-network key control information, the technical solution can distribute user plane signalings and control plane signalings per a user to each data analysis center according to the whole-network control table, thus ensuring the control plane and user plane signalings related to the user to be distributed to the same data analysis center.

  • Patent number: 10374847
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for indicating a modulation coding scheme (MCS) in LTE are described. A user equipment (UE) may receive downlink control information (DCI) from an evolved Node B (eNB) that includes an uplink grant of resources. The DCI may be configured and have a format that conveys an MCS table reference. The UE may identify the MCS table reference and, based on the reference, identify a legacy MCS table or a non-legacy MCS table. The legacy MCS table may be associated with quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) up to a first order, and the non-legacy MCS table may be associated with QAM up to a second order, the second order being higher than the first order.

  • Patent number: 10375609
    Abstract: The invention provides a system and method for repairing corrupt security information. At a serving node in a telecommunications network, security capabilities of a terminal are received when the terminal registers with the serving node. The received security capabilities are stored. A path switch request message is received from a target base station following an X2 handover request sent from a source base station to the target base station for handover of the terminal, the path switch request including the security capabilities of the terminal. The serving node determines whether the security capabilities of the terminal stored in the storage medium should be sent to the target base station. If so, the serving node sends the stored security capabilities of the terminal to the target base station for use in reselecting security algorithms to be used in communications between the target base station and terminal following the handover.

  • Patent number: 10349438
    Abstract: Channel availability is uncertain when employing an unlicensed carrier. In particular, it may be difficult to schedule grants in advance because of the uncertainty associated with future channels availability. Accordingly, scheduling UL and/or DL grants exclusively using self-scheduling or exclusively using cross-carrier scheduling for utilizing an unlicensed carrier may result in wasted communication opportunities. Aspects disclosed herein whereby an eNB may use licensed and unlicensed carriers to communicate downlink grants and uplink grants for an unlicensed carrier to a UE. In one aspect, the eNB may use an unlicensed carrier to communicate downlink grants for downlink communication on the unlicensed carrier, and may use a licensed carrier to communicate uplink grants for uplink communication on the unlicensed carrier.
