  • Patent number: 10397825
    Abstract: Explicit congestion notification (ECN) data that is utilized in a core portion of a cellular communication network has known issues associated with a first use scenario and an infrequent use scenario. A probe comprising probe data and a data structure for storing certain ECN data can be transmitted in order to mitigate these issues. Transmitting the probe in response to a communication session being established with a device of a network can mitigate the first use issue. Transmitting the probe in response to expiration of a probe timer in connection with a network traffic idle period can mitigate the infrequent use scenario.

    Abstract: Apparatuses, methods, and systems of measuring received power are described, including apparatuses, methods, and systems which can measure received power, even when the subcarrier offset of the measurement bandwidth is different from the subcarrier bandwidth of the cell bandwidth. In one method, the first received power of a plurality of Resource Blocks (RBs) received from a second Base Station (BS) are measured based on first channel state information received from a first BS. Based on the determination whether a value of an index included in the first channel state information is larger than a predetermined value, at least one of second received power, third received power, and fourth received power of the plurality of RBs is measured by using second channel state information including an alternative index determined based on the first channel state information based on a result of the determination.

  • Patent number: 10383101
    Abstract: Link adaptation for an uplink channel is dynamically performed based on changes in uplink resources in the wireless network, the changes based on frame configuration. If the ratio of uplink to downlink subframes in the new frame configuration is smaller, the throughput is increased by increasing a modulation and coding scheme of the uplink channel, and transmit power of wireless devices. If the ratio of uplink to downlink subframes is increased in the new frame configuration, the throughput is decreased, and the wireless device is instructed to transmit using reduced transmit power.

  • Patent number: 10375718
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides for adaptive resource management in new radio operations that favors the usage of resources for pilot signals and channel estimation in the transition slots of a slot burst, and the transmission of data in the subsequent slots of the slot burst. A device such as a user equipment (UE) and/or a base station may determine that the UE is operating in a transition state. The device may adapt a first numerology including a first number of symbols per slot used for transmission in the transition slots during the transition state, to a second scaled numerology including a second number of symbols per slot used for transmission in the subsequent slots after the transition state. A ratio of reference signal symbols to data symbol symbols may be greater in the transition slots than in the subsequent slots.

  • Patent number: 10368262
    Abstract: Quality of service may be enhanced for high priority traffic. A UE may communicate within a packet switched system, e.g., an LTE network. The UE may use a first or default bearer for signaling messages of high priority services and a second bearer for messages of low priority services. For example, the first bearer may have a quality of service class identifier (QCI) value of 5 while the second bearer may have a QCI value other than 5, (e.g., 6-9). The first bearer may be used for signaling messages associated with voice over IP, video over IP, and/or SMS over IP, as desired. The second bearer may be used for messages (e.g., signaling messages) associated with other, lower priority services. For example, the second bearer may be used for presence messages or instant messages or other lower priority messages.

  • Patent number: 10320507
    Abstract: A method determines a propagation time of a message in a communication network. The message is transmitted from a first network component to a second network component along a communication connection, and the first network component detects a transmission time of the message and stores the corresponding transmission time information. The propagation time is determined using the transmission time information. The aim is to improve the accuracy when determining the propagation time. This is achieved in that the second network component returns the message to the first network component immediately after the message is encountered in the second network component. The first network component detects a reception time upon receiving the returned message and stores corresponding reception time information of the message. The propagation time of the message along the communication connection is determined using the transmission time information of the message and the reception time information of the message.
