  • Patent number: 11323229
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses are provided in which a radio resource control (RRC) message is transmitted to a terminal. A set of values for a timing between a physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH) and acknowledgement information is included in the RRC message, and the set of values is respectively associated with a set of numbers of a transmission time interval (TTI). First downlink control information (DCI) for a first PDSCH is transmitted to the terminal. A number of bits associated with one value in the set of values is included in the DCI. The first PDSCH is transmitted to the terminal. Acknowledgement information for the first PDSCH is received from the terminal, based on a transmission timing determined by using the RRC message and the number of bits in the DCI.

  • Patent number: 11310700
    Abstract: A fifth generation (5G) radio access network (RAN) can determine that a user equipment (UE) should fall back to engaging in a communication session over an LTE-based Evolved Packet System (EPS) instead of a 5G system. However, to avoid interrupting setup operations that may be occurring separately for that communication session in an IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) apart from the 5G system, the EPS fallback can be delayed such that setup in the IMS can proceed at least to a point at which IMS signaling messages are less likely to be undeliverable due to the EPS fallback.

  • Patent number: 11283699
    Abstract: Some embodiments provide a method of identifying packet latency in a software defined datacenter (SDDC) that includes a network and multiple host computers executing multiple machines. At a first host computer, the method identifies and stores (i) multiple time values associated with several packet processing operations performed on a particular packet sent by a first machine executing on the first host computer, and (ii) a time value associated with packet transmission through the SDDC network from the first host computer to a second host computer that is a destination of the particular packet. The method provides the stored time values to a set of one or more controllers to process to identify multiple latencies experienced by multiple packets processed in the SDDC.

  • Patent number: 11246116
    Abstract: Multiple modulation and coding scheme (MCS) tables for new radio (NR) networks is disclosed. Multiple MCS tables are defined with different sets of MCS values selected for improved performance in various transmission conditions. The multiple MCS tables may be known to base stations and user equipments (UEs) in the network. A serving base station may determine a set of transmission characteristics related to a transmission environment of a UE. The base station selects one of the MCS tables of the multiple MCS tables based on the set of transmission characteristics. The selected MCS table includes MCS values that may provide improved performance for the UE considering one or more of the characteristics of the set of transmission characteristics. The base station will then transmit an indication of the selected MCS table to the served UE.

  • Patent number: 11240158
    Abstract: Approaches are described for release-time-driven (RTD) prioritization of on-board content scheduling and delivery to in-transit transport craft via communications systems. In context of a constrained network, content is scheduled to be delivered to those in-transit on-board media servers in a manner driven by respective release times and other prioritization factors associated with the updated content. Each content is associated with a RTD priority profile that can define a release time, a release priority, and a profile plot for the content. The RTD priority profiles can be used to compute priority surfaces that define priority scores over a multidimensional space for a particular time. A subset of the content can be selected for delivery based on the priority surfaces, and can be scheduled for delivery according to network capacity determinations.

  • Patent number: 11218255
    Abstract: A wireless data communication system and method are illustrated. The wireless data communication system has a central communication device and multiple communication devices, wherein the communication devices are able to communicate with the central communication device. The central communication device requests one of the communication devices to transmit one or more packets to the central communication device; if the central communication device determines at least one of the packets of the communication device is lost during transmission, and another one of the communication devices receives the one or more lost packets of the communication device, the other one communication device retransmits the one or more lost packets of the communication device to the central communication device after being requested by the central communication device. Thereby, the retransmission efficiency of packet loss can be enhanced and the transmission efficiency of radio frequency can be improved.
