  • Patent number: 10356731
    Abstract: A user apparatus in a mobile communication system that includes a first and second base station that perform communication with the user apparatus by inter-base station carrier aggregation. The user apparatus includes a setting information reception unit that receives, from the first base station, first setting information for instructing whether to report uplink transmission power information to the first base station, and second setting information for instructing whether to report uplink transmission power information to the second base station. A report control unit reports uplink transmission power information to the first or second base station when detecting a report trigger for performing reporting of the uplink transmission power information. When the report control unit detects a report trigger for a specific base station for which it is instructed not to perform reporting of the uplink transmission power information, the uplink transmission power information is reported to another base station.

  • Patent number: 10334535
    Abstract: A user equipment (UE) may compute uplink power control levels as a function of a downlink signal to noise ratio (SNIR). For example, the UE may determine an uplink transmit power level by summing a full power control (FPC) transmit power level, a product of a first adjustment factor (?) and the downlink SNIR, and a negative of a second adjustment factor (?2) when the product of the first adjustment factor (?) and the downlink SNIR is greater than or equal to the second adjustment factor (?2). A UE may also compute an uplink power control level as a function of target and/or current interference levels associated with neighboring base stations. A UE may also iteratively reduce a transmit power level until an interference level experienced by a neighboring base station has fallen below a threshold.

  • Patent number: 10263744
    Abstract: Disclosed are a wireless transmitter and a reference signal transmission method that improve channel estimation accuracy. In a terminal (100), which transmits a reference signal using n (n is a non-negative integer 2 or greater) band blocks (which correspond to clusters here), which are disposed with spaces therebetween in a frequency direction, a reference signal controller (106) switches the reference signal formation method of a reference signal generator (107) between a first formation method and a second formation method based on the number (n) of band blocks. In addition, a threshold value setting unit (105) adjusts a switching threshold value based on the frequency spacing between band blocks. Thus, the reference signal formation method can be selected with good accuracy and, as a result, channel estimation accuracy is further improved.
