  • Patent number: 11122528
    Abstract: A base station (BS) for a mobile communication system is provided. As for a user equipment (UE), the BS is a primary BS and connects to a secondary BS. The primary BS calculates the time synchronization error between the primary BS and the UE, and the time synchronization error between the secondary BS and the UE. These time synchronization errors are associated with the subcarrier spacings (SCSs) of the primary and secondary BSs, respectively.

  • Patent number: 11102703
    Abstract: An enhanced handover procedure is provided to facilitate communication routing changes in an integrated access and backhaul (IAB) network. In an IAB network a network node can be connected to the core network via multiple different paths, and when the path changes, (e.g., when an intermediate network node performs a handover procedure with another network node), messages can be sent to relevant network nodes informing them of the route change so as to reduce the number of protocol data units (PDUs) that are transmitted to network nodes that are no longer part of the communication path to the target network node. The network node that is no longer part of the communication path can also inform a parent node of which PDUs have been successfully transmitted to the target network node so that the parent node can retransmit the PDUs that were not transmitted successfully.
