  • Patent number: 10887876
    Abstract: While a user equipment (UE) performs a periodic transmission on a first link or a first carrier by using a semi-persistent scheduling (SPS) resource for the first link or the first carrier to an eNodeB (eNB), the UE may receive a SPS resource for a second link or a second carrier from the eNB. Or, a certain event may occur. Then, the UE stops using the SPS resource for the first link or the first carrier, and performs a periodic transmission on the second link or the second carrier by using the SPS resource for the second link or the second carrier to the eNB.

  • Patent number: 10887824
    Abstract: Technology to protect a network, e.g., a 5G/NGC network, including standalone RAN option 2 or option 4 network architectures, from aggressive device behavior is disclosed. A protective state can be entered in response to a criterion being determined to satisfy a rule related to failed network attachment attempts. While in the protective state, subsequent attach attempts can be prevented or blocked to reduce a burden on resources of the network, resources of a device attempting to attach to the network, etc. The protective state can be exited in response to another criterion being determined to satisfy another rule related to revoking the protective state. The other criterion can be related to time, location, device movement, an override signal, attachment to another network, a change in device power state, a change in device radio power state, etc.
