  • Patent number: 10111190
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and instrumentalities are disclosed for a wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) autonomously synchronizing. For example, a WTRU may be configured to receive a downlink timing synchronization. The WTRU may be configured to determine a synchronization signal. The WTRU may be configured to determine a synchronization mode. The synchronization mode may be RRC CONNECTED mode. The synchronization mode may be RRC IDLE mode. The WTRU may communicate data to the network while in an unsynchronized state in an RRC IDLE and/or an RRC CONNECTED mode. The communication of data while unsynchronized may reduce latency relative to one or more of a random access channel (RACH) procedure, a resource radio control (RRC) connection establishment procedure, or a data packet scheduling, for example.

  • Patent number: 10038532
    Abstract: A system and method for characterizing an interference demodulation reference signal (DMRS) in a piece of user equipment (UE), e.g., a mobile device. The UE determines whether the serving signal is transmitted in a DMRS-based transmission mode; if it is, the UE cancels the serving DMRS from the received signal; otherwise the UE cancels the serving data signal from the received signal. The remaining signal is then analyzed for the amount of power it has in each of four interference DMRS candidates, and hypothesis testing is performed to determine whether interference DMRS is present in the signal, and, if so, to determine the rank of the interference DMRS, and the port and scrambling identity of each of the interference DMRS layers.
