  • Publication number: 20210075476
    Abstract: Channel state information (CSI) can be transmitted to a network node incrementally to increase network efficiency. The CSI feedback framework can be enhanced by allowing a user equipment (UE) to report multiple sets of CSI feedback, where each set can comprise a rank indicator (RI), a pre-coder matrix indicator (PMI), and a channel quality indicator (CQI). Since a different set may have a different sub-band, the CSI feedback framework can support the sub-band rank, wherein rank data from a wideband and the sub-band can be used by the network.

  • Publication number: 20210067395
    Abstract: Various embodiments disclosed herein provide for an improved system for selecting and conveying modulation scheme information for an uplink transmission. A network device can determine the channel state information for an uplink transmission based on sounding reference signals received from a user equipment device, and then select a modulation scheme for the uplink transmission based on the channel state information and associated signal to noise ratio. The network device can then send an indication of the selection to the user equipment device using an index number comprising six bits that correspond to an index number in a table of modulation schemes. The table of modulation schemes can include modulation schemes that use transform precoding, as well as modulation schemes that do not use transform precoding.

  • Publication number: 20210058953
    Abstract: The disclosed subject matter is directed towards semi-static or dynamic shifting of New Radio demodulation reference signals to avoid collisions with LTE cell specific reference signals (LTE CRS) in a physical downlink shared channel symbol (PDSCH). In dynamic spread spectrum (DSS) deployments, where NR PDSCH mapping type B is used, e.g., to allow for two NR physical downlink control channel symbols, when the NR PDSCH starts on a symbol carrying LTE CRS, the NR DMRS of the NR PDSCH is shifted to the first symbol of the NR PDSCH not carrying LTE CRS. Whether mapping type A or mapping type B, shifting the symbol containing NR DMRS facilitates the use of two DMRS symbols without colliding with LTE CRS.

  • Publication number: 20210050896
    Abstract: The described technology is generally directed towards indicating to a receiver (e.g., a user equipment) which antenna ports are assigned for channel state information reference signals (CSI-RS). The indicator can be sent as radio resource control configuration data and/or by physical layer signaling such as in downlink control information. The receiver computes CSI based on the assigned antenna port or ports, and the reported (e.g., joint) CSI helps avoid mismatched joint CSI used for scheduling when multiple transmit and receive points (TRPs) are communicating with the user equipment.

  • Patent number: 10924133
    Abstract: Programming of frozen bits of first stage control channel information block enables scheduling information to be included for the second stage of the control channel information. By including some of the scheduling information for the second stage in the first stage frozen bits, the size of the first stage information blocks can be reduced, reducing the overhead required to transmit control information for the traffic channel. In an embodiment, the frozen bits can convey scheduling information that is lower priority than the scheduling information conveyed in the non-frozen bits of the first stage control channel information block. In another embodiment, the frozen bits can include parity bits, or cyclic redundancy check bits that are masked with the scheduling information.

  • Publication number: 20210045065
    Abstract: Channel state information reference signal transmission can be used to estimate channel state information. Although resources needed for channel state information reference signals can be small, when multiple bandwidths are deployed within the same orthogonal frequency division multiplexing bandwidth, estimating the channel state information can comprise a channel state information reference signal resource grid for every bandwidth. Therefore, time-frequency resources for channel state information reference signals can be high and occupy a lot of bandwidth, thereby reducing the number of resources for data transmission. Therefore, a non-orthogonal design for channel state information reference signals for a 5G air interface can mitigate bandwidth loss in a 5G network.

  • Publication number: 20210028882
    Abstract: Various embodiments disclosed herein provide for indicating a number of codeword symbols in a data traffic transmission. Depending on the number of layers of a data traffic transmission, the transmission can either comprise one codeword symbol or two codeword symbols. If there are two codeword symbols included in a data traffic transmission, the transmitter can indicate the modulation code scheme and other information for each codeword symbol in the first codeword symbol and second codeword symbol locations in the downlink control information data structure. If there is only one codeword symbol, however, the transmitter can provide a modulation code scheme and redundancy version that would not be self-decodable in the second codeword symbol setting location, indicating to the receiver that there is only one codeword symbol in the data traffic transmission.

  • Publication number: 20210028903
    Abstract: The described technology is generally directed towards adapting the demodulation reference signal sent in a wireless resource data block based on channel estimation performance. In general, if the demodulation reference signal received was not successfully able to be used to demodulate the resource data block, the demodulation reference signal density can be increased up to a maximum density, which costs resource elements but improves the channel estimation accuracy. If the demodulation reference signal received was able to be used to demodulate the resource data block, the demodulation reference signal density can be decreased down to minimum density, which saves resource elements for data. The network device can use HARQ ACK/NACK data (e.g., a current count or counted over a time period) to determine channel estimation performance, and/or the user equipment can recommend a demodulation reference signal density change.
