  • Patent number: 9907042
    Abstract: Some demonstrative embodiments include apparatuses, systems and/or methods of determining a Time Synchronization Function (TSF) based on Fine Timing Measurement (FTM) messages. For example, a wireless station may be configured to determine a first TSF value of a local TSF of the wireless station at arrival of a first FTM message from a responder station; to determine a second TSF value of the local TSF at arrival of a second FTM message from the responder station, the second FTM message including a first Time of Departure (TOD) value of the first FTM message; to process a third FTM message from the responder station, the third FTM message including a second TOD value of the second FTM message; and to apply to the local TSF a TSF correction based at least on the first TSF value, the second TSF value, the first TOD value, and the second TOD.

  • Patent number: 9026051
    Abstract: Technology for establishing a device to device (D2D) connection is disclosed. One device comprises a UE that includes a proximity discovery module configured to receive discovery information from at least one of a wireless wide area network (WWAN) and a wireless local area network (WLAN) to assist in establishing a D2D communication channel with at least one additional UE. A D2D communication module is configured to establish the D2D communication channel between the UE and the at least one additional UE using the discovery information. The D2D communication channel is established in a licensed radio frequency band and is managed by the WWAN.
