  • Patent number: 10834742
    Abstract: A network node provisions multi-cell System Information (SI) for a serving cell serving a wireless device and some number of second cells by dividing the multi-cell System Information Block (SIB) into multiple SIB instances. At least one of the SIB instances comprises the SIB content for the serving cell, and each remaining SIB instance comprises the SIB content for the cell(s) associated with that SIB instance, where the SIB content for at least one of the SIB instances is compressed. In one embodiment, another of the SIB instances comprises SIB content for one or more of the second cells, which is subsequently compressed before being provided to the wireless device. Each SIB instance is then provided to a wireless device via a corresponding downlink communication channel.

  • Patent number: 10834724
    Abstract: A communication device initiates beam acquisition in a receive-only mode. Beam reception is set to an omni mode in which different beams of RF signals are receivable at the communication device from different directions. A primary signal synchronization (PSS) search is executed from each signal synchronization block location based on control information acquired directly from a first base station over a long-term evolution (LTE) control plane link or from a customer premise equipment (CPE) or user equipment (UE) that is in a radio resource control (RRC) connected state. The communication of the beam of RF signals that has highest received signal strength is activated in a new radio (NR) frequency to the UE or the CPE based on at least a PSS detected in the PSS search, for low-latency non-standalone access to the beam of RF signals in NR frequency at the UE or the CPE.

  • Patent number: 10805874
    Abstract: A wireless data relay has radio circuitry to wirelessly scan a frequency band having frequency channels. The radio circuitry attaches to a wireless network over the frequency band. The radio circuitry receives signaling from the wireless network indicating allowed frequency channels and transfers the signaling to control circuitry. In the wireless data relay, the control circuitry processes the signaling to direct the radio circuitry to use the allowed frequency channels instead of the frequency band. In response, the radio circuitry wirelessly scans the allowed frequency channels instead of the frequency band. The radio circuitry wirelessly re-attaches to the wireless communication network over the allowed frequency channels. The radio circuitry exchanges user data with the UEs. The radio circuitry exchanges the user data with the wireless network over the allowed frequency channels.
