  • Patent number: 10827551
    Abstract: When a UE is served with standalone-connectivity under a first radio access technology (RAT) in a cell site that also supports dual-connectivity service under the first RAT and a second RAT, a decision will be made as to whether to configure the dual-connectivity service for the UE, with the decision being based on whether the UE is moving threshold quickly. If the UE is moving at least predefined-threshold quickly, then, based at least on that fact, the decision will be to not configure the dual-connectivity service for the UE. Whereas, if the UE is not moving at least predefined-threshold quickly, then, based at least on that fact, the decision will be to configure the dual-connectivity service for the UE. The UE's serving network will then operate according to the decision, to control whether the UE is provided with dual-connectivity service.

  • Patent number: 10757590
    Abstract: Embodiments of a User Equipment (UE) and methods for communication in multi-mode environments are generally described herein. The UE may operate in a failure state as part of a packet-switched (PS) communication session with a PS network, such as a 3GPP LTE network. The UE may determine that a circuit-switched (CS) communication session with a CS network is to be established. The UE may transmit, while operating in the failure state of the PS communication session, a CS registration message to a CS base station of the CS network as part of an establishment of the CS communication session. The UE may refrain from transmission, while operating in the failure state, of messages to the PS network for the establishment of the CS communication session.
