  • Publication number: 20210112616
    Abstract: Methods and systems for Radio Access Network (RAN) aggregation of multiple Radio Access Technologies (RATs). A method disclosed herein includes aggregating the RATs at a RAN level to provide at least one User Equipment (UE) with multi-connectivity. The method further includes enabling at least one Centralized unit (gNodeB-CU) within at least one RAN node to uniformly control Distributed Units (DUs) of different RATs (5G New Radio (NR) and Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) RATs). The method further includes enabling the at least one gNB-CU to control the at least one UE and allow the at least one UE to connect with an additional RAT irrespective of an initial RAT, the UE is connected to. The method further includes controlling WLAN Access Point (AP) as a 5G distributed unit (gNB-DU).

  • Patent number: 10506508
    Abstract: A highly available network architecture for a LTE based communication network. Embodiments herein disclose an architecture for a highly available and resilient Long Term Evolution (LTE) based wireless communication network, wherein the network comprises of at least one Base Station (BS) further comprising of a merged LTE eNodeB (eNB) and a LTE Evolved Packet Core (EPC) entities and except for a single active BS, the other BSs can act as a backup for the currently active BS. Embodiments herein disclose a network architecture for a highly available and resilient architecture for Long Term Evolution (LTE) based wireless communication network, wherein a LTE radio interface is used for connectivity between components of the LTE communication network.

  • Patent number: 10187928
    Abstract: Methods and systems for controlling an SDN-based multi-RAT communication network. Embodiments herein disclose a wireless communication system, which can support/enable services that are currently being provided by multiple wireless communication systems. Embodiments herein disclose a wireless communication system based on SDN (Software Defined Networking). Embodiments herein disclose a network comprising of a generic control plane node. Embodiments herein disclose a method for communication between the proposed wireless communication system and existing UEs that are in use in today's 3GPP-LTE networks or IEEE 802.11 based WLANs without any changes in the mobile communication protocol. Embodiments herein disclose a method for providing services to the users, such as handover of a device from WLAN to 3GPP-LTE and vice versa.
