  • Publication number: 20220295563
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to for skipping monitoring of downlink control channel in random access. A first device receives from a second device a command indicating the first device to skip monitoring a downlink control channel between the second device and the first device for a time period. In response to the random access procedure being triggered by a first trigger condition, the first device determines whether the time period overlaps with a time window associated with a random access procedure. The first device ignores or performs the command based on the determination.

  • Publication number: 20220232471
    Abstract: The present invention introduces a beam-based UE mobility state estimate for power saving purposes, based on monitoring the distinct beam(s) (302) detected by the UE. In other words, the number N of distinct serving beams changed by the UE within a time window T is monitored (302) against the configured threshold values. If N is below a first threshold value “Thr1”, a low/stationary mobility state is determined (303) and the UE applies a first measurement configuration (305) associated with the low/stationary mobility state. If N is between first and second threshold values “Thr1” and “Thr2”, a medium mobility state is determined (304) and the UE applies a second measurement configuration (306) associated with the medium mobility state. If N is above the second threshold value “Thr2”, a high mobility state is determined and the UE applies a third measurement configuration associated with the high mobility state.

  • Publication number: 20220225252
    Abstract: In order to perform small data transmission during an RRC INACTIVE mode, a UE may need to determine whether the stored timing advance (TA) is valid. A TA may be valid if its usage would result in an uplink transmission arriving at a TRP of a base station during a time period during which the base station expects to receive uplink transmission. A UE may determine that a TA is valid based on a received fraction of the length of a cyclic prefix and observed SSB time shift.
