  • Patent number: 10917215
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for transmission and reception of SPS communications are disclosed herein. User equipment (UE) is configured to receive, in a first subframe, a physical downlink control channel or enhanced physical downlink control channel (PDCCH/EPDCCH) corresponding to semi-persistent scheduling (SPS) activation. The PDCCH/EPDCCH conveys a value of nSCID. The UE configures, based on the SPS activation, a downlink (DL) assignment in a second subframe for receiving an SPS physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH) without a corresponding PDCCH/EPDCCH. The UE determines a reference signal sequence corresponding to the SPS PDSCH using nSCID derived from the PDCCH/EPDCCH corresponding to the associated SPS activation. The UE receives the SPS PDSCH in a second subframe. The UE processes the SPS PDSCH based on the reference signal sequence for the SPS PDSCH in the second subframe using the nSCID derived from the PDCCH/EPDCCH corresponding to the associated SPS activation.

  • Patent number: 10805831
    Abstract: A method and system to help control CoMP service in a V-RAN arrangement. The load on a cell site's fronthaul network interface between the cell site's RRH and the cell site's BBU is determined. And in response to detecting that the fronthaul load is threshold high, a limit will be imposed on application of CoMP service involving the cell site. For example, in response to detecting that the cell site's fronthaul network interface is threshold highly loaded, (i) the cell site could be made to use decentralized joint processing rather than centralized joint processing, (ii) a lower coverage strength threshold could be imposed as a basis to trigger CoMP service involving the cell site, and/or (iii) the quantity of uplink communication that is subject to CoMP service involving the cell site could be limited.

  • Patent number: 10764179
    Abstract: A packet sub-engine coupled to a packet buffer determines which of multiple look up tables (LUTs) is to be searched for a matching entry that matches a received data packet. Each LUT corresponds to a different type of packet handling action and includes multiple entries, each with a match field and a corresponding collection of one or more actions for handling packets that match the match field. The packet sub-engine searches the determined LUT for a matching entry, processes the received data packet according to the action(s) in the matching entry, and determines whether a further LUT is to be searched for a further matching entry. The processed data packet is provided as an output if no further LUT is to be searched, or otherwise the packet sub-engine searches the further LUT and further processes the processed packet according to the action(s) in the further matching entry.
