  • Publication number: 20190335418
    Abstract: Embodiments of a Next Generation Node-B (gNB) and methods of communication are disclosed herein. The gNB may be configured with a gNB-CU and a gNB-DU. A first paging message for paging of the UE may be received at the gNB-CU from an access management function (AMF) entity. The first paging message may include: a paging identity of the UE; and a paging origin information element (IE) that indicates whether the paging of the UE is originated due to a protocol data unit (PDU) session from non-3GPP access. A second paging message to page the UE may be transmitted from the gNB-DU to the UE. The second paging message may include: the paging identity of the UE; and an access type parameter that indicates whether the paging of the UE is originated due to the PDU session from the non-3GPP access.

  • Publication number: 20190297652
    Abstract: Systems and methods of setting up an E1 interface for a gNB are described. A transmitting entity of the gNB-CU-CP and gNB-CU-UP initiates the first TNL association between the gNB-CU-CP and gNB-CU-UP, and is also limited to initiating the E1 Setup procedure. The transmitting entity sends an E1 SETUP REQUEST message to set up the E1 interface. Afterwards, a message is received from the receiving entity. The transmitting entity determines that the setup of the E1 interface is successful if the message contains IEs of an E1 SETUP RESPONSE message. The types of IEs include a message type IE and a name of the transmitting entity.

  • Patent number: 10397090
    Abstract: An apparatus comprises a memory and processing circuitry that are configured to implement a first network control protocol (NCP) MAC layer configured to handle MAC layer communications of the first NCP, and sniffer edge circuitry. The sniffer edge circuitry is configured to communicate with the first NCP MAC layer and a second NCP MAC layer and to capture events related to second NCP (WiGig) communications. These captured events are communicated over a dedicated sniffer network, and packet contents communicated between the second NCP MAC layer and the second NCP stack are secure from the sniffer edge circuitry. The apparatus receives a distributed common time reference and uses this to timestamp the captured events.

  • Publication number: 20190254090
    Abstract: Systems and methods of modifying the bearer context of a DRB of an E1 interface for a gNB are described. To modify the bearer context associated with a DRB for a particular UE, the gNB-CU-UP transmits a Bearer Context Modification Required message through the E1 interface and receives in response a Bearer Context Modification Confirm message that confirms the modification of the bearer context. The Bearer Context Modification Required message and Bearer Context Modification Confirm message both include the new GTP TEID and TNL address to be used after modification of the bearer context, a gNB-CU-CP UE E1AP ID that uniquely identifies a UE association over the E1 interface within the gNB-CU-CP, a gNB-CU-UP UE E1AP ID that uniquely identifies a UE association over the E1 interface within the gNB-CU-UP, and a DRB ID IE that uniquely identifies the DRB.

  • Publication number: 20190246310
    Abstract: Systems and methods of providing feedback when a specific PDU is successfully delivered or transmitted are described. The node hosting PDCP entity indicates triggering of a DDDS frame from the remote corresponding node. Rather than immediately triggering transmission of a DDDS frame, the node hosting PDCP entity indicates triggering based on successful delivery of a PDU having a specific SN, as long as in-sequence delivery or transmission of PDUs up to the specific SN was successful. The DDDS frame is transmitted once the corresponding node determines that the PDU having the SN was successfully delivered or transmitted. After reporting by the DDDS frame, the QoS flow associated with the PDUs is remapped from a source DRB to a target DRB.

  • Patent number: 10356772
    Abstract: A wireless local area network (WLAN) point-to-point communications link between an evolved universal terrestrial radio access network node B (eNB) and a user equipment device (or simply UE) is identified by UE/eNB media access control (MAC) identifiers on a per UE or per data radio bearer (DRB) basis for offloading cellular data from a long term evolution (LTE) link to the WLAN point-to-point communications link. A wireless local area network tunneling protocol (WLTP) includes packet formats and network protocol stack arrangements to support functions facilitated by the WLAN point-to-point communications link, such as, for example, identification of control and data traffic messages, DRB identification for WLTP packets, quality of service (QoS) delay and packet loss measurement, support of bearer splitting, and support of a general framework for offloading cellular traffic at different depths of the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) network protocol stack.

  • Publication number: 20190208366
    Abstract: Embodiments of a Next Generation Node-B (gNB) and User Equipment (UE) are generally described herein. The gNB may transmit control signaling to configure transmission of position reference signals (PRSs) by a plurality of transmit-receive points (TRPs). The gNB may receive, from the UE, for each of the TRPs, a set of signal location parameters (SLPs). The gNB may perform an iterative process to estimate a position of the UE. For a current iteration, the gNB may: determine a current estimate of the position of the UE based on a current plurality of sets of SLPs; and determine a cost function for each of the current plurality of sets of SLPs. The gNB may determine, based on the cost functions, a next plurality of sets of SLPs for a next estimate of the position of the UE.
