  • Patent number: 11563508
    Abstract: A communications network includes a central communication unit, an optical transport medium, and a plurality of remote radio base stations. The central communication unit generates, within a selected millimeter-wave frequency band, a plurality of adjacent two-tone optical frequency conjugate pairs. Each conjugate pair includes a first optical tone carrying a modulated data signal, and a second optical tone carrying a reference local oscillator signal. The optical transport medium transports the plurality of two-tone conjugate pairs to the plurality of radio base stations, and each base station receives at least one conjugate pair at an optical front end thereof. The optical front end separates the first optical tone from the second optical tone, and converts the first optical tone into a millimeter-wave radio frequency electrical signal.

  • Patent number: 11109409
    Abstract: An assisted random-access procedure allows band sharing between New Radio Unlicensed (NR-U) and Wi-Fi to improve coexistence of NR-U and Wi-Fi in shared unlicensed bands (e.g., below 7 GHz). To connect to an NR-U network, NR-U User Equipment (UE) receives and decodes an NR-U preamble of an NR-U wireless transmission to determine NR-U channel occupancy time (COT). The NR-U UE detects Wi-Fi wireless transmissions and decodes a Wi-Fi preamble to determine Wi-Fi COT. A random access (RA) opportunity is acquired based upon the NR-U wireless transmission and the NR-U COT. When the RA opportunity is not during the Wi-Fi COT, a PRACh message is transmitted from the NR-U UE to a NR-U base station (gNB) to allow the NR-U UE to join the NR-U network. NR-U transmissions may include an NR-U common preamble that may be decoded by existing Wi-Fi devices to avoid collisions with NR-U wireless transmissions.
