  • Patent number: 10142237
    Abstract: A data flow control method and communication device operable to communicate using a first radio access technology (RAT) and a second RAT are described. In a data flow control method, data flow congestion is detected. The congestion can be detected on a first communication link associated with the first RAT. The communication device can be controlled to enter a reduced power operating mode for communications via the first communication link. The entry of the reduced power mode can induce a base station supporting the second communication link associated with the second RAT to perform one or more data flow control operations. A data flow control method can include dropping data packets on a lower protocol layer to induce a higher protocol layer to perform a data flow control operation. The data flow control operation can induce the network to reduce data flow.

  • Publication number: 20180324826
    Abstract: Technology for a user equipment (UE) to perform long-term evolution (LTE) and Wireless local area network (WLAN) aggregation (LWA) connection procedures within a wireless communication network is disclosed. The UE can determine to suspend communication on a wireless local area network (WLAN) of one or more protocol data units (PDUs) for a LWA session without terminating the LWA session. The UE can process, for transmission to an eNodeB, a request to suspend communication of the one or more PDUs on the WLAN to enable the eNodeB to schedule the one or more PDUs for transmission to the UE through a cellular interface without terminating the LWA session.

  • Publication number: 20180241509
    Abstract: A user equipment device (UE) may create efficient Packet Data Convergence Protocol (PDCP) status reports. The UE may receive PDCP packets from multiple radio access technologies (RATs) using the same bearer or same RAT using split bearers. The UE may identify packets that the UE should have received but did not, and may create a status report based on the sequence numbers (SNs) of the packets that the UE failed to receive or based on the SNs of the successful packets. The report may include the SNs of the packets, in addition to a bit-length of the SNs and/or a starting point of the SNs in the status report. Alternatively, the report may include the SN of a first packet that the UE failed to receive and offset values (relative to the SN of the first packet) for the other packets that the UE failed/succeed to receive.
