  • Patent number: 11153925
    Abstract: A method of handling QoS flow descriptions with invalid EPS bearer context is proposed. During an EPS bearer activation or modification procedure, a UE may receive an ePCO/PCO IE for creating a new QoS flow description or modifying an existing QoS flow description. if UE detects that the to be created/modified QoS flow descriptions are associated with invalid EPS bearer context, then UE does, not create/modify the QoS flow descriptions. Instead, UE locally deletes the QoS flow descriptions provided by the network. In addition, UE indicates a 5GSM cause to the network via PCO/ePCO. As a result, when inter-system change from EPS to 5GS happens, UE no longer needs to handle the QoS flow descriptions with invalid EPS bearer context.

  • Patent number: 11122490
    Abstract: Disclosed is an improved implementation of a flood fill mesh radio network that utilizes message age disambiguation to prevent unnecessary propagation of repeated messages in the network. A digital counter may be used to generate a sequence of numbers based on counter values and the counter values may be associated with each message frame that is broadcast into the mesh network. The domain of generated sequence numbers can be divided up into low and high subdomains and the maximum number of message frames broadcast by a network node in the mesh network may be constrained so that no two messages broadcast by a network node remain circulating in the network longer than that required for the digital counter to wrap back to zero. Under this paradigm the counter values associated with each message can be compared to determine the relative age of the message frames to detect repeated messages.
