  • Patent number: 11963133
    Abstract: An access and mobility management function receives, from a session management function, a request to set up a communication with a wireless device for transmitting downlink data. The access and mobility management function sends, based on the request, to the base station, a first paging message for a closed access group (CAG) wireless device that is allowed to access CAG cells. The first paging message indicates transitioning the CAG wireless device from an idle state to a connected state. The first paging message comprises a parameter indicating whether the wireless device is allowed to access non-CAG cells.

  • Patent number: 11924927
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for performing sidelink communications in a wireless transmit receive unit (WTRU) using Long Term Evolution (LTE) and New Radio (NR) technologies is described herein. A WTRU receives downlink control information (DCI) on a physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) from a gNodeB (gNB), wherein the DCI is associated with a cyclic redundancy check (CRC). The a determination is made as to whether the DCI is for an LTE or NR technology sidelink transmission. On a condition that the DCI is for NR technology, the WTRU determines which transmit modulation and coding scheme (MCS) table to apply based on the masking of at least some of the bits in the CRC. Then the WTRU transmits sidelink data on resources indicated by the DCI using the determined MCS table. The WTRU may also receive HARQ feedback on resources indicated by the DCI for HARQ feedback.

  • Patent number: 11902881
    Abstract: The system supports a virtual carrier mode of operation in which downlink communications are made by a base station using a radio interface that spans a system frequency bandwidth while a terminal device is configured to receive at least some communications from the base station within a restricted subset of transmission resources selected from within the system frequency bandwidth. The system supports terminal devices in both a radio resource control connected mode and a radio resource control idle mode. When there is to be a change in system information the base station transmits to the terminal device an indication that updated system information is to be broadcast by the base station and this indication is received by the terminal device while in the connected mode. Before seeking to acquire the updated system information, the terminal device transitions from the connected mode to the idle mode.

  • Patent number: 11863433
    Abstract: The present technology provides a system and method for implementing targeted collection of in-situ Operation, Administration and Maintenance data from select nodes in a Segment Routing Domain. The selection is programmable and is implemented by setting an iOAM bit in the function arguments field of a Segment Identifier. In this way only the nodes associated with local Segment Identifiers (Function field of a Segment Identifier) with an iOAM argument bit are directed to generate iOAM data. The iOAM data generated by target nodes may be stored in TLV field of the segment routing header. The Segment Routing packet is then decapsulated at a Segment Routing egress node and the Header information with the collected iOAM data is sent to a controller entity for further processing, analysis and/or monitoring.
