  • Patent number: 11496441
    Abstract: Systems, methods and computer software are disclosed for providing network address translation with a tunnel identifier (TEID) in a cellular network. A HetNet Gateway (HNG) allocates at least a portion of a unique TEID for a user equipment (UE). The HNG receives a packet having a source field in the packet header including an Internet Protocol (IP) address. The HNG replaces the IP address in a source field of the packet header of the packet with the unique TEID for the UE and forwards the packet using the unique TEID to a packet gateway (PGW).

  • Patent number: 11490371
    Abstract: User equipment (UE)-specific information may be transmitted within a control resource set configured to carry resources common to UEs within a system. The UE-specific information may be associated with a search space having an aggregation level different from aggregation levels used with the common control resources and may occupy different modulation symbols within the common control resource set (e.g., to support flexible scheduling for multiple UEs). A base station and UE may operate in a system using one or more control resource sets within a system bandwidth. The UE may detect common control resources by monitoring decoding candidates in the control resource set according to a first set of aggregation levels. The UE may detect UE-specific control resources by monitoring decoding candidates in the control resource set according to other aggregation levels. The UE and base station may communicate based on control information obtained from the monitoring.

  • Patent number: 11425779
    Abstract: Example configuration methods and apparatus are described with reference to an example communications system. The example communications system includes a master node and a secondary node that jointly provide a service for a terminal. One example method includes that the secondary node generates configuration information for a signaling radio bearer (SRB), where the SRB is used to transmit a radio resource control (RRC) message between the secondary node and the terminal. The secondary node sends the configuration information for the SRB to the master node, so that the configuration information for the SRB is sent to the terminal through the master node. The secondary node receives a result of configuring the SRB by the terminal by using the configuration information for the SRB. In this way, the SRB can be established on the secondary node, and used for RRC message transmission between the secondary node and the terminal.
