  • Patent number: 10355825
    Abstract: A shared signaling channel has multiple segments, and parameters for this channel may or may not be sent to users in advance. For example, the number of segments, the size and rate of each segment, and so on may be broadcast to the users via an overhead channel. The transmit power for each segment is not broadcast to the users and can range from zero to the total transmit power. A base station obtains signaling for all terminals within its coverage and maps the signaling for each terminal to at least one segment used for the terminal, which may be dynamically selected. The base station processes (e.g., jointly or individually encodes) the signaling mapped to each segment and generates output data for the segment. The output data for each segment is multiplexed onto the system resources allocated for the segment and transmitted at the selected power level.

  • Patent number: 10291349
    Abstract: Techniques for using multiple modulation schemes for a single packet are described. Each data packet is processed and transmitted in up to T blocks, where T>1. Multiple modulation schemes are used for the T blocks to achieve good performance. A transmitter encodes a data packet to generate code bits. The transmitter then forms a block of code bits with the code bits generated for the packet, determines the modulation scheme to use for the block (e.g., based on a mode/rate selected for the packet), maps the code bits for the block based on the modulation scheme to obtain data symbols, and processes and transmits the block of data symbols to a receiver. The transmitter generates and transmits another block in similar manner until the data packet is decoded correctly or all T blocks have been transmitted. The receiver performs the complementary processing to receive and decode the packet.

  • Publication number: 20190025853
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides systems and methods for mapping a determined path of travel. The path of travel may be mapped to a camera view of a camera affixed to a vehicle. In some embodiments, the path of travel may be mapped to another view that is based on a camera, such as a bird's eye view anchored to the camera's position at a given time. These systems and methods may determine the path of travel by incorporating data from later points in time.

  • Patent number: 10064179
    Abstract: Techniques for managing peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) for multi-carrier modulation in wireless communication systems. Different terminals in a multiple-access system may have different required transmit powers. The number of carriers to allocate to each terminal is made dependent on its required transmit power. Terminals with higher required transmit powers may be allocated fewer carriers (associated with smaller PAPR) to allow the power amplifier to operate at higher power levels. Terminals with lower required transmit powers may be allocated more carriers (associated with higher PAPR) since the power amplifier is operated at lower power levels. The specific carriers to assign to the terminals may also be determined by their transmit power levels to reduce out-of-band emissions. Terminals with higher required transmit powers may be assigned with carriers near the middle of the operating band, and terminals with lower required transmit powers may be assigned with carriers near the band edges.

  • Patent number: 10027372
    Abstract: Techniques for mitigating interference in a wireless communication system are described. In an aspect, pertinent transmission parameters for a served UE may be sent to at least one interfered UE to support interference mitigation. In one design, information for at least one transmission parameter for a data transmission sent by a first cell to a first UE may be transmitted to at least one UE served by a second cell to enable the at least one UE to perform interference mitigation for the data transmission sent by the first cell to the first UE. The information may be transmitted by either the first cell or the second cell. In another aspect, a cell may send transmission parameters for a UE via a pilot. In yet another aspect, scrambling may be performed by a cell at symbol level to enable an interfered UE to distinguish between modulation symbols of desired and interfering transmissions.

  • Publication number: 20180139789
    Abstract: Various operations may be performed based on a distance-related function associated with two or more devices. For example, an association procedure for two or more devices may be based on one or more determined distances. Similarly, presence management may be based on one or more determined distances. A distance-related function may take various form including, for example, a distance between devices, two or more distances between devices, a rate of change in a relative distance between devices, relative acceleration between devices, or some combination of two or more of the these distance-related functions.

  • Publication number: 20180139620
    Abstract: Techniques for centralized control of peer-to-peer (P2P) communication and centralized control of femto cell operation are described. For centralized control of P2P communication, a designated network entity (e.g., a base station) may control P2P communication of stations (e.g., UEs) located within its coverage area. The designated network entity may receive an indication of a first station (e.g., a UE) desiring to communicate with a second station (e.g., another UE). The designated network entity may determine whether or not to select peer-to-peer communication for the first and second stations, e.g., based on the quality of their communication link. The designated network entity may assign resources to the stations if peer-to-peer communication is selected. For centralized control of femto cell operation, the designated network entity may control the operation of femto cells (e.g., may activate or deactivate femto cells) within its coverage area.

  • Patent number: 9801188
    Abstract: Providing for interference reduction and/or avoidance utilizing backhaul signaling between wireless access points (APs) of a wireless access network (AN) is described herein. By way of example, an interference avoidance request (IAR) can be issued by an AP to reduce signal interference on forward link (FL) and/or downlink (DL) transmissions by neighboring APs. The IAR can be routed via a backhaul network and/or over-the-air via access terminals (ATs) coupled with the AP or one or more interfering APs. Upon receiving the IAR, an interfering AP can determine reduced transmit power levels for FL and/or RL transmissions and respond to the IAR. The response can include reduced power levels and can be sent via the backhaul network or OTA. By employing the backhaul network in full or in part, interference avoidance can be conducted even for semi-planned or unplanned heterogeneous networks coupled by the backhaul.

  • Patent number: 9774431
    Abstract: Systems and methodologies are described that facilitate providing high reuse for transmitting reference signals, such as positioning reference signals (PRS) and cell-specific reference signals (CRS), to improve hearability thereof for applications such as trilateration and/or the like. In particular, PRSs can be transmitted in designated or selected positioning subframes. Resource elements within the positioning subframe can be selected for transmitting the PRSs and can avoid conflict with designated control regions, resource elements used for transmitting cell-specific reference signals, and/or the like. Resource elements for transmitting PRSs can be selected according to a planned or pseudo-random reuse scheme. In addition, a transmit diversity scheme can be applied to the PRSs to minimize impact of introducing the PRSs to legacy devices. Moreover, potions of a subframe not designated for PRS transmission can be utilized for user plane data transmission.
