  • Patent number: 11115308
    Abstract: A system is provided for controlling congestion. The system sends a first data packet to a destination device, and receives a first acknowledgement packet from the destination device corresponding to the first data packet. Next, the system can extract, from the first acknowledgement packet, a first pair of timestamp values which includes a first time stamp value generated by the source device and a second timestamp value generated by the destination device, and further extract, from a second acknowledgement packet corresponding to a subsequently transmitted packet to the destination device, a second pair of time stamp values which include a third time stamp value generated by the source device and a fourth time stamp value generated by the destination device. The system can determine the congestion change by calculating a one-way travel time difference based on the first pair of timestamp values with the second pair of timestamp values.

  • Patent number: 11115870
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and devices can be used to perform service-aware utilization of shared wireless resources. In various instances, a quality metric (e.g., a Bit Error Rate (BER)) of a shared wireless resource is determined. Requested services can be provided based at least partly on the quality metric and the type of services being requested. For example, when the quality metric exceeds a threshold and the requested services are for Quality of Service (QoS)-sensitive services (e.g., Guaranteed Bit Rate (GBR) services), the services can be provided at least partially via a licensed wireless resource. However, when the quality metric does not exceed the threshold, and/or the requested services are for non-QoS-sensitive services (e.g., non-GBR services), the services can be provided via the shared wireless resource.

  • Patent number: 11108667
    Abstract: The present disclosure involves systems and computer implemented methods for implementing a resource allocation and adjusting resource usage and spending based on information received from a plurality of network-connected devices. One example method includes identifying a new connected device replacing an existing device associated with a resource allocation, the resource allocation defining an expected resource usage for a plurality of devices (including the existing device), obtaining historical resource usage information associated with the existing device, identifying the existing device's operational parameters, and determining an expected resource usage for the new connected device after replacement. A change in the expected resource usage in the resource allocation is calculated based on the obtained historical resource usage information associated with the existing device and the expected resource usage amount for the new connected device.

  • Patent number: 11109377
    Abstract: A user equipment (UE) may communicate using different radio access technologies on adjacent frequency bands. The UE may determine that the UE is not receiving wireless signals for a second radio access technology that utilizes a second frequency band adjacent to a first frequency band for a first radio access technology. The UE may place a transmitter of the UE in a filter bypass mode in which a transmit signal bypasses a transmit filter for the first radio access technology in response to determining that the wireless signals for the second radio access technology are not received. The UE may scan, using a receiver for the second radio access technology, while in the filter bypass mode, the second frequency band for a signal for the second radio access technology between scheduled transmissions for the first radio access technology.

  • Patent number: 11102350
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable media for delivering content to a client device placed on hold. A communication system establishes a communication session between a client device placed on an initial hold and a content delivery service, during which the client device placed on the initial hold may place a subsequent hold, resulting in multiple concurrent holds. The communication system allocates a unique identifier to the subsequent hold and updates records associated with the initial and subsequent holds to include an indication that the client device that ends the hold should be placed on hold. The communication system terminates the communication session between the client device placed on the initial hold and the content delivery service and returns the unique identifier allocated to the subsequent hold to the client device that initiated the subsequent hold.

  • Patent number: 11095419
    Abstract: A wireless device receives one or more first radio resource control (RRC) messages. The first RRC messages comprise one or more configuration parameters of a first cell and a second cell. A second RRC message is received. The second RRC message indicates a first change of a first active bandwidth part (BWP) of the first cell. Processing of the second RRC message is completed. A determination is made that the completing occurs during a time duration of a second change of a second active BWP of the second cell. Based on the determining, the first change of the first active BWP is delayed until the second change of the second active BWP is completed.

  • Patent number: 11089607
    Abstract: There is provided mechanisms for evaluating co-scheduling of terminal devices. A method is performed by a network node. The method comprises obtaining an indication that a terminal device served by the network node is involved in a data session being longer than a threshold time value. The method comprises initiating, as a result of the data session being longer than the threshold time value, a beam sweep procedure using analog beamforming with the terminal device. The beam sweep procedure results in identification of a set of candidate beams in which the network node is able to serve the terminal device during the data session. The method comprises evaluating whether to co-schedule the terminal device with another terminal device in any of the candidate beams or not. The so-called another terminal device is also served by the network node.

  • Patent number: 11089587
    Abstract: Provided in the embodiments of the present application are a physical uplink shared channel transmission method and a terminal device. With said method, when a terminal does not carry out uplink beam management before being scheduled to transmit a PUSCH and is thus unable to determine an uplink beam, a transmission beam for transmitting the PUSCH may be determined, and the PUSCH may thus be transmitted according to the determined beam, thereby improving the PUSCH transmission performance. The method comprises: a terminal device determines a transmission beam for transmitting a first PUSCH according to a beam used to receive a PDCCH, a beam used to transmit a PUSCH previously or a beam used to transmit a PUCCH; and the terminal device transmits the first PUSCH according to the determined beam.
