  • Patent number: 11146345
    Abstract: A method of operating a terminal device to perform measurement event evaluation for measurement reporting in respect of a downlink carrier in a wireless telecommunications system. The method includes determining that measurement event evaluation for the downlink carrier should be undertaken. Measurements of a parameter associated with radio channel conditions for frequency resources used by the downlink carrier are obtained during an evaluation period beginning at a start time. The extent to which the downlink carrier is being transmitted during the evaluation period is also established. Whether or not to send a measurement report to network infrastructure equipment is then evaluated by taking account of both the measurements of the parameter during the evaluation period and the extent to which the downlink carrier is being transmitted during the evaluation period.

  • Patent number: 11134125
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for supporting active link status during LAN interface reset and reconfigurations. Under one aspect, during normal operations traffic is transmitted over an Ethernet link coupling a first link partner to a second link partner. In response to a network interface re-configuration event, transmission of traffic over the Ethernet link is paused while keeping the Physical layer (PHY) of the Ethernet link active. The configuration of the first link partner is updated while the transmission of traffic is paused and the PHY of the Ethernet link is active. Upon completion of the configuration update, the link partners resume transmission of traffic over the Ethernet link. Additional schemes are provided that support re-configuration of network interfaces that support link and per priority flow control.
