  • Patent number: 10284485
    Abstract: Embodiments herein relate to a method in a first communication node (10?) for transmitting a packet in a first packet network operated by a first network operator towards a destination node (10?,12). The first communication node (10?) is comprised in the first packet network. The first communication node (10?) receives a packet with a first value related to resource sharing in a second packet network operated by a second network operator, wherein the first value indicates a level of importance of the packet relative importance of another packet along a scale of the second packet network. The first communication node (10?) remarks the packet with a second value related to resource sharing in the first packet network, wherein the second value indicates a level of importance of the packet relative importance of another packet along a scale of the first packet network. The first communication node (10?) transmits, over the first packet network, the remarked packet towards the destination node (10?,12).

  • Patent number: 10244522
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. In an FDD system, a UE may identify an indicator associated with ultra-reliable low latency communications (URLLC) while communicating in a sidelink channel. The UE may also identify dedicated uplink resources in the sidelink channel, and reserve the dedicated uplink resources. The dedicated uplink resources may be reserved for an acknowledgement/negative acknowledgement (ACK/NACK) feedback or for a scheduling request (SR). URLLC data may be communicated, and the reserved uplink resources may be utilized to transmit an ACK/NACK feedback or a SR. In a TDD system, a base station may transmit information identifying dedicated resources for URLLC data. In some cases, a base station may transmit an indicator channel, which a sidelink UE may monitor to determine the presence of URLLC data, and respond accordingly.

  • Patent number: 10225203
    Abstract: A method and system may allow for the scheduling of transmissions. A device may send a transmission request over a network where the request may be an upload request or a download request. Traffic may be monitored on the network and the traffic may determine when the transmission is to be scheduled. Depending on the traffic and the type of transmission, the transmission may be scheduled for a future time or may be added to a queue of pending transmissions. Once commenced, the transmission may be paused and resumed based on continually monitored traffic on the network.

  • Patent number: 10178682
    Abstract: The invention relates to methods for improving a scheduling request transmission between a UE and a base station. The transmission of the scheduling request is postponed, by implementing a threshold that the data in the transmission buffer has to reach, before a transmission of the scheduling request is triggered. In one variant, the data in the transmission buffer needs to reach a specific amount, to trigger a scheduling request. The invention refers to further improvements: the PDDCH monitoring time window is delayed after sending a scheduling request; the dedicated scheduling request resources of the PUCCH are prioritized differently such that low-priority scheduling requests are transmitted less often.
