  • Publication number: 20220311539
    Abstract: For a source stream of input data where FEC scheme(s) have been used to create a repair stream, transmitting by a network node packet(s) comprising data of the source stream or the repair stream packaged as at least part of PDU(s). An ARQ or HARQ process is applied to the PDU(s). The network node receives feedback information as part of the process corresponding to the PDU(s), including positive ACK/NACK response for the PDUs. The retransmissions of the negatively acknowledged PDU(s) are controlled when the FEC scheme is known not to be able to compensate for loss(e)s of packet(s) contained in the PDU(s) indicated as being negatively acknowledged. A UE receives packet(s), determines loss(es), and, in response to a determination the FEC scheme is known to be able to recover from the loss(es), sends at least one ACK for any lost packets that correspond to the one or more loss(es).

  • Publication number: 20220006753
    Abstract: Systems, methods, apparatuses, and computer program products for reducing latency in 5G/NR are provided. One method may include determining, by a network node, to apply selective reordering of one or more data units received at a user equipment, and indicating the decision to apply selective reordering to the user equipment. The selective reordering temporarily alters packet data convergence protocol window behaviour in the user equipment such that a packet data convergence protocol layer in the user equipment is caused to deliver, to upper layer(s), the stored data units with an associated count value that is less than the count value associated with a data unit at the user equipment and/or the stored data units with consecutively associated count values starting from the count value associated with a data unit at the user equipment.

  • Patent number: 11129180
    Abstract: Various communication systems may benefit from the appropriate handling of scheduling requests. For example, certain wireless communication systems may benefit from a scheduling request procedure involving multiple scheduling request configurations. A method can include transmitting, by a device, a first scheduling request at a first time. The method can also include setting, by the device, a timer from the first time prohibiting subsequent scheduling requests for a predetermined duration based on the transmission of the first scheduling request. The method can further include Identifying, by the device, a trigger for a new scheduling request subsequent to the first scheduling request. The method can additionally include modifying the timer based on the new scheduling request.

  • Patent number: 10999801
    Abstract: While a transmission time interval (TTI) length of other than 1 ms is in effect for communication between mobile and network nodes, at least one timer related to discontinuous reception (DRX) is implemented according to a rule that defines a time duration of the timer different from a time duration of the same timer implemented when the TTI length is defined as 1 ms. There are a plurality of such DRX-related timers, and in certain embodiments each is associated with one rule of a set of rules for implementing the respective timer when the TTI length is other than 1 ms; and in particular examples the timers are associated with groups for this purpose and all the timers of at least one of the groups is implemented according to the same rule of the set. Thus new DRX parameters need not be sent anytime the TTI length changes.
