  • Patent number: 11202264
    Abstract: Some techniques and apparatuses described herein protect components of a user equipment (UE), such as a low noise amplifier (LNA), from internal interference. For example, the LNA may be disconnected from a receive chain during periods of high internal interference, and may be reconnected to the receive chain during periods of low internal interference. Furthermore, some techniques and apparatuses described herein improve performance by adjusting operations of the UE to account for and/or offset increased internal interference due to a receive chain that does not include a surface acoustic wave (SAW) filter to remove unwanted radio frequency signals. For example, one or more operations of a baseband processor may be modified to account for the increased internal interference. Additionally, or alternatively, reporting of channel state information may be modified to account for increased internal interference of the UE. Additional details are described herein.

  • Patent number: 11172492
    Abstract: Embodiments are presented herein for adjusting the conduct of routine communications of safety messages in V2X networks in order to conserve resources in participating power-limited devices while satisfying V2X system latency demands. Scheduling (e.g., timing and/or frequency) of safety message communications performed by certain UE devices participating in a V2X network may be dynamically adjusted according to various criteria, such as factors relating to the DRX cycle schedule, motion or mobility, traffic environment, and/or battery or power capabilities of the UE devices, which may conserve UE resources and power consumption. Certain UE devices may efficiently transmit safety messages to the V2X network using one of several proposed RACH-based procedures. In some embodiments, the size of safety message communications may be reduced through various compression techniques, and/or by reducing the amount of contained information, e.g.

  • Patent number: 11129028
    Abstract: Improved methods, systems, devices, or apparatus that support prioritization for potential shared data transmissions are described. In some cases, a receiving device may identify transmission parameters for shared transmissions including a scheduled shared transmission and determine resources for a potential shared transmission. The receiving device may monitor for the shared transmission(s) based on priority rules for a shared transmission and the potential shared transmission. For instance, the receiving device may be configured to receive only one of the scheduled or potential shared transmission. In some cases, the transmitting device may consider the priority rules and determine whether to transmit or drop one or more shared transmissions.

  • Patent number: 11122471
    Abstract: Registration of a user equipment (UE) with a circuit-switched (CS) network can be controlled in an “on-demand” fashion by waiting for a trigger event before registering the UE with an available CS network. In some embodiments, CS registration of a UE may be triggered when the mobility management entity (MME) node receives, from the UE, a service request that was sent using Non-Access Stratum (NAS) protocol, such as an extended service request (ESR) or a short message service (SMS) over NAS request. In some embodiments, CS registration of a first UE may be triggered when the MME node receives, from a home subscriber server (HSS), a notification of an incoming session request originating from a second UE to establish a communication session over a CS network with the first UE.
