  • Patent number: 10536863
    Abstract: A gateway turns encrypted PS data traffic on the Iub interface into clear IP packets so that WAN stream de-duplication and other optimization can be performed to eliminate the transfer of repetitive data across the Iub interface, thereby increasing the throughput between the NodeB and the RNC of the WCDMA network. The gateway pulls PS data traffic out from Iub without disturbing the signaling and CS traffic. The bifurcated PS data traffic is redirected to the GTP I/O port of the gateway where the stream de-duplication is applied. Deployment of the gateway is transparent to the WCDMA network. No network reconfiguration is required to deploy the gateway on the Iub interface.

  • Patent number: 10531452
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. A mobile device may be scheduled for resources of multiple transmission time intervals (TTIs) with a downlink control message; some or all of the multiple TTIs may be associated with different hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) processes. Each TTI may include data mapped to one transport block (TB), and each TB may be associated with a separate HARQ process. The downlink control message may include an indication of which HARQ processes are associated with resources of the multiple TTIs scheduled by the message. For example, the downlink control message may include a mapping (e.g., a bitmap) that indicates a relationship between each HARQ process and each TTI scheduled by the message. Feedback for TBs of some TTIs may differ, and an acknowledgment of receipt or successful decoding may depend on timing of TTIs in relation to a control message.

  • Patent number: 10433255
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method and system that may help control when a network will request (and receive) a remaining battery energy level report from a UE. Per the disclosure, a network that has an established radio-link-layer connection with the UE could track an amount of time in which the UE operates in a radio-link-layer connected mode. The network could then determine whether the amount of time in which the UE has operated in the radio-link-layer connected mode has exceeded a predetermined threshold amount of time. And responsive to determining that the amount of time in which the UE has operated in the radio-link-layer connected mode has exceeded the threshold amount of time, the network could cause the UE to report to the network the remaining battery energy level of the UE.

  • Patent number: 10390342
    Abstract: A method for sidelink communication between a first wireless node and a second wireless node is described, the sidelink communication using sub-frames of a first type and a second type. The first wireless node determines whether the first wireless node is an initiator or responder of the sidelink communication. If the first wireless node determines that the first wireless node is an initiator of the sidelink communication, then it transmits data directly toward the second wireless node using the first sub-frame type. Alternatively, if the first wireless node determines that the first wireless node is a responder of the sidelink communication, then it transmits data directly toward the second wireless node using the second sub-frame type, the first sub-frame type being different than the second sub-frame.
