  • Patent number: 10880796
    Abstract: A user terminal, user terminal chipset, and method performed at a user terminal receives a system information block (SIB) from a base station. The SIB includes information indicating a resource pool to be used for device-to-device (D2D) discovery in a cell of the base station, a frequency list indicating frequencies different from a frequency of the cell and available for the D2D discovery, and usage identification information associated with frequency identifiers in the frequency list and indicating whether to be available for public safety (PS). Determination is made, based on whether the user terminal satisfies a predetermined condition, of one of the D2D discovery for the PS and the D2D discovery for the non-PS, a frequency available for the PS is selected based on the usage identification information when the user terminal performs the D2D discovery for the PS, and the selected frequency is used to perform the D2D discovery.

  • Patent number: 10805788
    Abstract: A system and method that enables the setting up of an incoming call from an originating endpoint of a calling party to a mobile station of a called party who is registered as a roamer in a visited cellular network. In response to receiving a dialed number, or other call information, the system determines whether to set up the call to the mobile station of the called party through a pre determined, over-the-top (OTT) call service that bypasses the visited network. The OTT call service is offerable as a feature to the called party by the party's home mobile network operator (MNO). Call handling for the OTT call service is provided through i) an OTT feature server that is coordinating the incoming call, an application server that is affiliated with the OTT feature server, and iii) a OTT software application that is executing on the called party's mobile station.

  • Patent number: 10797944
    Abstract: This invention generally relates to commissioning in Zigbee Light Link (ZLL) networks. The proposed solution takes advantage of the existing Touchlink procedure in order to enable a controller device joining a ZLL network without having to Touchlink with every single lighting devices comprised in the ZLL network. This way, the one or more lighting devices of the ZLL network may be directly controlled by the newly joined controller device after a single Touchlink thanks to the introduction of a commissioning device. The commissioning device may be configured to provide specific joining information and binding information to the controller device. Further, a timer in the commissioning device may be triggered to lapse after a given period of time where the controller may be disconnected from the ZLL network.

  • Patent number: 10798636
    Abstract: A wireless communication apparatus, system or method to perform directional wireless transmission (e.g., directional mmW) after establishing one or more routes. When valid routes are not available for sending route discovery, then sector sweeping (SSW) is performed which combines a routing request with the SSW frame sent in multiple sector directions for receipt by neighboring stations. These neighboring stations obtain the information from the SSW and its appended routing request and respond back to the initiator with an SSW to which may be appended a routing reply or a routing request. Beam refinement is performed by appending a training field onto a route request, which is responded to by appending a beam refinement reply onto a route reply.
