  • Patent number: 10361953
    Abstract: An Internet Protocol Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) receives a media session invite having a Wireless Priority Service (WPS) prefix over a non-Long Term Evolution (LTE) network for a User Equipment (UE). The IMS identifies the WPS prefix and adds a Resource Priority Header (RPH) indicating that the media session invite is for a WPS call. The IMS transfers an authentication request to a WPS Application Server to authenticate the UE for the WPS call based on a UE identifier and receives an authentication response indicating that the UE is authenticated. The IMS determines that the media session invite was transferred over the non-LTE network and transfers an instruction to the UE indicating that the UE should re-originate the media session invite over the LTE network. The UE receives the instruction and transfers the media session invite having the WPS prefix to the IMS over the LTE network.

  • Patent number: 10334533
    Abstract: Channel state information reference signal transmission can be used to estimate channel state information. Although resources needed for channel state information reference signals can be small, when multiple bandwidths are deployed within the same orthogonal frequency division multiplexing bandwidth, estimating the channel state information can comprise a channel state information reference signal resource grid for every bandwidth. Therefore, time-frequency resources for channel state information reference signals can be high and occupy a lot of bandwidth, thereby reducing the number of resources for data transmission. Therefore, a non-orthogonal design for channel state information reference signals for a 5G air interface can mitigate bandwidth loss in a 5G network.

  • Patent number: 10291541
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for scheduling transmissions from an access node in a communication network. A plurality of data packets may be received at a buffer of an access node. A discard timer may be started on receipt of the data packets. When the discard packet timer expires, a number of data packets in the buffer and an associated aggregated queuing delay may be determined. The aggregated queuing delay may be compared to target block error rate (BLER). The target BLER may be modified when the aggregated queuing delay and the number of data packets exceed a target threshold. Data packets may be transmitted from the access node using the modified BLER.

  • Patent number: 10284501
    Abstract: Technologies for multi-core wireless data transmission include a computing device having a processor with multiple cores and a wireless network interface controller (NIC). The computing device establishes multiple transmission queues that are each associated with a processor core. A driver receives a packet for transmission from an application in the execution context of the application, determines a current processor core of the execution context, adds metadata to the packet indicative of the current core, and enqueues the packet in the transmission queue associated with the current core. The wireless NIC merges the packet with packet data from the other transmission queues, adds a sequence number to each packet, and transmits each packet. The wireless NIC may determine the current processor core based on the metadata of the packet and raise an interrupt to the current processor core in response to transmitting the packet. Other embodiments are described and claimed.
