  • Patent number: 11805512
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A first wireless device, such as a user equipment (UE), may be configured to communicate with one or more other wireless devices (e.g., another UE) via sidelink communications. The first wireless device may receive an indication of a schedule of resources for sidelink communications to be performed over a communication beam, the schedule indicating a set of resources corresponding to a beam configuration for the sidelink communications with a second wireless device. The first wireless device may communicate with the second wireless device via one or more sidelink channels based on configuring the communication beam using the beam configuration over the set of resources. In some examples, the indication of the schedule of resources may be received in a confirmation of the schedule established by the second wireless device or, in some examples, in a request to establish the schedule.

  • Patent number: 11696248
    Abstract: A service layer entity may register to another service layer entity and proactively request to gain access to the local services hosted by the registrar entity. A registrar entity may accept a registree entity's registration request but only grant access of its partial services to the registree entity. If a registree entity does not need to proactively request the services within its registration request message, the registrar entity decides what services may be needed by the registree entity and grants access of those services to the registree entity.

  • Patent number: 11696173
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. Techniques are described to enable wake-up signal (WUS) error handling at a user equipment (UE). The UE may detect an error pattern when attempting to receive a WUS from a base station based on a configuration for receiving the WUS. For example, the base station may transmit the configuration for receiving the WUS to a set of UEs including the UE. Based on detecting the error pattern, the UE may perform a mitigation operation based on determining the error pattern, such as waking up multiple cells to receive a transmission indicated by the WUS, transmitting a radio link failure indication to the base station, etc. Additionally or alternatively, the base station may transmit multiple WUSs to the UEs, such as a first WUS according to the configuration and a second WUS according to a reconfiguration.
