  • Patent number: 10448410
    Abstract: A method is shown for allocating a plurality of channels to a plurality of radio nodes (RNs) in a radio access network (RAN). In accordance with the method, an initial RN is selected from among the plurality of RNs. A first of the plurality of channels is assigned to the initial RN. The first channel is selected such that external interference experienced by the initial RN from sources other than the RAN on the first channel is minimized. A second RN is selected from among the plurality of RNs. A second of the plurality of channels is assigned to the second RN. The second channel is selected such that a metric reflective of an information carrying capacity of the RNs that have already been assigned one of the plurality of channels is maximized. The assigned channels are allocated to the respective RNs to which they have been assigned.

  • Patent number: 10448391
    Abstract: A method for performing transmission or reception by a first communication node (511) in at least one of: a first set of time-frequency resources (1201) and a second set of time-frequency resources (1202) in a frame (1200). The first and the second set of time-frequency resources (1201, 1202) are reserved for communication of reference signal and/or control information in a pre-arranged direction of: transmission and reception to or from one or more second communication nodes (512). The first communication node determines (1301) that the direction of communication of at least one of the first and second set is to be switched for at least one frame (1200). The first communication node also performs (1306) transmission or reception of control information in at least one of the first and second set of time-frequency resources (1202) according to the determined switched direction to or from, one or more third communication nodes (513).

  • Patent number: 10432519
    Abstract: A packet routing method and apparatus for managing packets of a bi-directional session between a first node and a second node in an IP network receives a mid-stream packet at an intermediate node. The intermediate node is not part of the bi-directional session. Next, the method identifies the bi-directional session (“identified session”) from which the mid-stream packet originated. The identified session includes a bi-directional path between the first node and the second node, while the bi-directional path includes a plurality of nodes for bi-directionally forwarding packets between the first node and the second node. The method then directs that one or more packets of the identified session be routed to at least one of the plurality of nodes of the identified session.

  • Patent number: 10412666
    Abstract: A network entity receives a WLAN access message from a UE. The WLAN access message includes an indication of the UE status with the telecommunication network. The network entity detects the indication of UE status and determines from the indication whether to allow the UE access to the WLAN. When the WLAN is integrated with the telecommunications network, the network entity sends a query to the telecommunication network (e.g. the RAN or core network part) for a decision based on the UE status with the telecommunication network. The indication may include data representative of RAN or core network accessibility information (e.g., limited service or no coverage), WLAN access only, a user preference for accessing the WLAN instead of the telecommunication network, and/or any other connectivity or preference information for use by the WLAN or network entity in determining whether to allow UE to access WLAN.
