  • Patent number: 10172135
    Abstract: A wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) (e.g., a millimeter WTRU (mWTRU)) may receive a first control channel using a first antenna pattern. The WTRU may receive a second control channel using a second antenna pattern. The WTRU may demodulate and decode the first control channel. The WTRU may demodulate and decode the second control channel. The WTRU may determine, using at least one of: the decoded first control channel or the second control channel, beam scheduling information associated with the WTRU and whether the WTRU is scheduled for an mmW segment. The WTRU may form a receive beam using the determined beam scheduling information. The WTRU receive the second control channel using the receive beam. The WTRU determine, by demodulating and decoding the second control channel, dynamic per-TTI scheduling information related to a data channel associated with the second control channel.

  • Patent number: 10123357
    Abstract: To solve a problem that unless all of a plurality of AICH signature states are correctly decoded, the contents of reception results cannot be recognized and the error rate of signature decoding will be high. In this embodiment, a base station uses, out of a signature combination, the signature of at least one predetermined position to indicate information containing a preamble reception result and uses the signature of a position other than the predetermined position to indicate a transmission profile information number of an uplink channel for notification to a user equipment. Thus, the error rate related to reception results can be reduced as compared with the case where a single signature combination is used to notify all pieces of information.

  • Patent number: 10098174
    Abstract: In one aspect, the application running on mobile device creates a unique identifier. This unique identifier acts as the “permanent address” for sending packets from the proxy server to the mobile application. The current IP address of the device is used as a “temporary forwarding address” for the packet. When the IP address of the mobile device changes, the application on the device quickly informs the proxy server about this change. This allows the proxy server to continue sending the remaining data of this download session to the newly acquired IP address without having to restart the entire download session from scratch.

  • Patent number: 10098126
    Abstract: Method performed by a transmitting device for transmitting a block to a receiving device, both devices operating in a wireless communications network. The block comprises four bursts, which further comprise fields for Uplink State Flags (USF), Stealing Flags (SF), and data/header bits. In a first block format, USF and SF fields are interleaved and mapped over the four bursts, while data/header fields are interleaved over one burst but repeated over the four bursts. The data/header fields are overlapping with and overridden by bits from the USF field in different positions in each burst. The receiving device can receive the transmitted block and, if it is determined that the block format corresponds to the first block format, can correct a frequency offset of the receiving device in relation to the transmitting device based on the plurality of data/header bits received in at least one pair of consecutive bursts.

  • Patent number: 10084590
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for aggregating carriers with different carrier configurations. The carriers may include both time division duplex (TDD) and frequency division duplex (FDD) carriers which may be configured such that control information for both carrier types is conveyed by the TDD carrier. In one aspect, an association between a set of subframes, including both TDD and FDD subframes, is determined. The association may operate to distribute control information for the FDD carrier over uplink subframes of the TDD carrier to achieve a load balancing. Alternatively, the association may operate to minimize a hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) feedback delay. The TDD carrier may provide resource grants for the aggregated carriers and the association may be used to identify subframes from both carriers which may be scheduled in a given DL subframe.

  • Patent number: 10079658
    Abstract: An enhanced physical downlink control channel (e-PDCCH) may provide carrier aggregation (CA) enhancements, help support new carriers which may not be backwards compatible, reduce control channel capacity limitations of coordinated multipoint (CoMP) transmissions, and enhance DL MIMO. In wireless communication networks, such as Long Term Evolution (LTE), user equipments (UEs) may monitor both a common search space and a UE-specific search space in a control region. A search space may comprise a set of channel control element (CCE) locations where a UE may find its PDCCHs. One or more CCEs are used to transmit each PDCCH. Certain aspects provide methods and apparatus for determining a search space comprising a subset of CCEs located on a band edge of available frequency resources, and performing a search of the search space to decode at least one PDCCH.

  • Patent number: 10057154
    Abstract: Systems and methods that use adaptive control of communication protocol parameters in a network of moving things. Each network device may share information identifying communication protocol parameters used by the network device through periodic broadcasts, which may be received by neighboring network devices that are within communication range. The neighboring network devices may then adjust their own communication protocol parameters accordingly when attempting to communicate with the first network device and their own neighboring network devices. Network devices that have not received the shared information may use information about their geographic location and the geographic location of neighboring network devices to estimate values of some communication protocol parameters that will provide more effective communication.
