  • Patent number: 10334562
    Abstract: A base station transmits and a UE detects broadcast information when the UE operates in a Coverage Enhancement (CE) mode. The base station transmits repetitions of signaling conveying broadcast information in one or more subframes of each frame in a quadruple of frames. The transmission is intermittent in time. To detect the broadcast information, the UE blindly combines and decodes the repetitions of signaling assuming their existence. The base station informs the pattern for the intermittent transmissions of the signaling to UEs connected to the base station or to other base stations.

  • Patent number: 10334503
    Abstract: A combination of repeaters and relays is used to improve the data throughput for user equipment (“UE”) near the cell edge in a LTE network. Amplify-and-forward repeaters and decode-and-forward relays enhance the down-link and up-link, respectively. Relay assistance on the up-link occurs when the evolved Node B (“eNB”) requests a retransmission (HARQ) from the UE at which point the UE and relay transmit simultaneously in a cooperative fashion. The quality of the up-link signal received by the eNB is improved due to a favorable channel through the relay. An analysis shows that relay assistance improves the throughput for a cell-edge user when the average delay per data transport block is allowed to increase.

  • Patent number: 10320871
    Abstract: Improved capabilities are described for increasing the bandwidth in a wireless communication network, such as where host computers provide publish-subscribe broker services to a sensor device and a communicating entity. A queuing service application may provide service packet continuity when the sensor device or the communicating entity moves between two wireless RF access nodes (in the same or different wireless networks). The publish-subscribe broker network is adapted to route packets of sensor data, on behalf of the sensor device that publishes the sensor data, to a sensor-processing application, wherein the sensor-processing application subscribes to the sensor data, and wherein the sensor-processing application generates application data that is at least in part sensor data from the sensor device.

  • Patent number: 10320684
    Abstract: Most of the internet traffic today is carried out via the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP). The main advantage of TCP is that it provides reliable data transfer to the application layer and simplifies programming. The protocol maximizes data throughput but may also lead to noticeable transmission delay in wide area networks (WAN). A client-server based medical image viewing system is disclosed that achieves high data throughput over TCP without impacting responsiveness. Special timestamp messages inserted into the data stream allow the system to detect situations where network latency increases noticeably and to obtain a reliable estimate of sustained transfer bandwidth. The system applies a feedback scheme that avoids network delays by limiting send bandwidth. In addition other parameters, in particular image compression settings, are dynamically adjusted depending on current network quality.

  • Patent number: 10313140
    Abstract: A power distribution system capable of network-connecting relay is provided. Power distribution units of the power distribution system execute a master-node-arbitrating process to generate an arbitration result, and respectively switch to a master node mode for being a master node or a slave node mode for being a slave node according to the arbitration result. When being the master node, a power distribution unit receives a monitor command from a remote management device via an external network, and transfers it to the corresponded slave node(s). When being the slave node, a power distribution unit executes the monitor command received from the master node. Therefore, the complexity of building system and the cost of building system can be effectively reduced, and network-connecting relay service can be provided.

  • Patent number: 10292096
    Abstract: Embodiments disclosed herein include combining power from isolated power paths for powering remote units in distributed antenna systems (DASs). In one example, a remote unit(s) is configured to include multiple input power ports for receiving power from multiple power paths. The received power from each input power port is combined to provide a combined output power for powering the remote unit. Thus, a remote unit can be powered by the combined output power. To avoid differences in received power on the multiple input power ports causing a power supply to supply higher power than designed or regulated, the input power ports in the remote unit are electrically isolated from each other. Further, the received power on the multiple power inputs ports can be controlled to be proportionally provided to the combined output power according to the maximum power supplying capabilities of the respective power supplies.

  • Patent number: 10291375
    Abstract: A network node, a User Equipment, UE and methods therein, for handling a message transmitted over a radio link. The network node generates a first set of identity check bits for a first part of the message, based on the message and a first check identity, and further generates a second set of identity check bits valid for a second part of the message, based on the message, the first set of identity check bits and a second check identity. The message is then transmitted over the radio link with the first and second sets of identity check bits attached. The UE performs a first verification check using the second set of identity check bits and the second check identity, and performs a second verification check using the first set of identity check bits and the first check identity. The UE then handles the second message part based on the first verification check and the first message part based on the second verification check.
