  • Patent number: 11147017
    Abstract: A method and a device for transmitting a wake-up frame in a wireless LAN system are proposed. In particular, the transmission device configures a PPDU to which a first wireless LAN system is applied. The transmission device transmits, via the PPDU, a wake-up frame to which a second wireless LAN system is applied. The PPDU is transmitted via a first frequency band. The PPDU comprises a signal field and a data field. The signal field indicates that a data frame is transmitted in at least one RU excluding three 26-RUs located at the center of a second frequency band included in the first frequency band. The wake-up frame is transmitted via a 4 MHz band located at the center of the three 26-RUs. A coefficient is inserted in a first subcarrier constituting the 4 MHz band. The wake-up frame has an OOK scheme applied thereto and thus comprises an on signal and an off signal.

  • Patent number: 11063879
    Abstract: Due to massive available spectrum in the millimeter wave (mmWave) bands, cellular systems in these frequencies may provide orders of magnitude greater capacity than networks in conventional lower frequency bands. However, due to high susceptibility to blocking, mmWave links can be extremely intermittent in quality. This combination of high peak throughputs and intermittency can cause significant challenges in end-to-end transport-layer mechanisms such as TCP, such as the challenging problem of bufferbloat. Specifically, with current buffering and congestion control mechanisms, high throughput-high variable links can lead to excessive buffers incurring long latency. A dynamic receive window approach addresses the problem of bufferbloat.

  • Patent number: 11057885
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described that provide for frame-based initiator device operations. A wireless device may be operating within a frame-based equipment communications system, where a frame may include a channel occupancy time period and a minimum idle period. An initiating device may be configured to initiate autonomous uplink communications during the channel occupancy time period of its frame, while the device may not initiate communications during an idle period of its frame. In some cases, a frame-based equipment communications system may include more than one initiating device, where the idle periods for different initiating devices may occur at different times. In some cases, the initiating device may be configured to initiate communications during the idle period for another initiating device. This may allow the wireless system to decrease system overhead associated with a minimum idle period per frame.

  • Patent number: 11051324
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure provide mechanisms for utilizing a single uplink grant to transmit scheduling requests (SRs) for two or more logical channels. A base station may allocate a separate grant of uplink resources for each SR opportunity (e.g., each logical channel for which a user equipment (UE) may transmit a SR to the base station). When the allocated uplink resources are within the same time period, the UE may select a subset of the SR opportunities for which to transmit a SR and partition the subset into one or more groups of SR opportunities. The UE may then generate one or more SR bits representing the one or more groups of SR opportunities and transmit the one or more SR bits on the single uplink grant.
