  • Publication number: 20220303783
    Abstract: Techniques and apparatus for channel mapping in shared spectrum in the presence of higher tier users are provided. One technique includes evaluating, for different channel locations of orthogonal channel(s) within available spectrum, an amount of transmission limitation imposed to a group of devices due to incumbent protection, an amount of available bandwidth, and/or a maximum contiguous channel size. A channel location is assigned to each orthogonal channel, based on the evaluation. Another technique includes determining first channel location(s) in order to assign at least a first orthogonal channel within available spectrum. Each first orthogonal channel is associated with a group of devices sharing bandwidth within one or more networks. An exchange is participated in with a network entity to share a first set of information associated with the first channel locations. A determination is made whether to modify portion(s) of the first set of information, based on the exchange.

  • Publication number: 20140177549
    Abstract: Techniques for neighbor list provision in a communication network are described. From an access terminal, a query for potential access points within communication range of the access terminal is received; and neighbor list information is provided to the access terminal. The neighbor list information is associated with available access points capable of providing the access terminal with access to a network.

  • Patent number: 8428601
    Abstract: In general, a method is described for handing off a communication session associated with a mobile device from a first network running a first technology to a second network running a second technology different from the first technology, the method comprising: establishing a communication channel with the mobile device through the first network; and enabling, through the communication channel, a handoff of the communication session associated with the mobile device from the first network to the second network.

  • Publication number: 20090168766
    Abstract: A radio node bridges a first communication session from an access terminal using a first communication protocol to a network using a second communication protocol, and requests that a second communication session between the access terminal and the network be established, the second communication session using the first communication protocol. The radio node receives instructions for the access terminal to join the second session and instructs the access terminal to transfer an active call from the first session to the second session.
