  • Publication number: 20200281035
    Abstract: A method for a mobile terminal to access a network with a multi-link with a plurality of network access points. When the terminal wishes to obtain a quality of service expressed in the form of a minimum bitrate constraint on the uplink, it determines the identity and the number of access points with which it must establish a link to meet this constraint while minimizing its emission power. A MEC network with a mobile terminal that can request the network to support a computational task under latency constraint.

  • Patent number: 9392465
    Abstract: The invention relates to a link adaptation method for a cellular or heterogeneous wireless telecommunications system. The communications of the system are organized in pairs of interfering communications. For a first communication between a first transmitting terminal and a first receiving terminal interfering with a second communication between a second transmitting terminal and a second receiving terminal, the first and/or second link(s) are adapted, at a constant transmission power, by selecting a weak or strong interference regime for the first and/or second link(s), the weak regime corresponding to processing of the interference as thermal noise, the strong regime corresponding to processing in which the interfering communication is decoded in order to be eliminated from the received signal.

  • Patent number: 9220109
    Abstract: A method of allocating resources in a cellular radio communication network including user equipments and a cluster composed of local access points to the network covering a microcell. For each local access point, the presence of user equipments in a coverage zone of the microcell associated with the local access point is determined. A local coverage message specifying equipments determined as present in the microcell coverage zone is generated. A global coverage message by aggregation of the local coverage message of each local access point in the cluster is generated. At least one operating parameter of a local access point in the cluster is modified as a function of the global coverage message. For each local access point in the cluster, an activity state of the user equipment is determined and a field in the local coverage message is entered accordingly with data representing the activity of the equipment.

  • Patent number: 9094871
    Abstract: A gateway for interfacing a capillary network of communicating devices with an access point of a cellular network. The gateway includes a plurality of input buffers designed to store elementary packets. A plurality of output buffers store composite packets formed by aggregation of elementary packets, each output buffer being associated with a type of flow of the cellular network. A flow regulator determines for each output buffer, parameters of size and/or transmission times of the composite packets such that the flow of these packets is consistent with the type of flow of the cellular network associated with the output buffer. A multiplexing device transfers and aggregates elementary packets, stored in the input buffers, in the form of composite packets having the parameters determined by the flow regulator. A scheduling device for transmitting the composite packets by the transmission resources of the cellular network.

  • Patent number: 8995270
    Abstract: The present invention relates to an asynchronous communication method in a wireless sensor network comprising a tree structure. For each node of the network, the communication is organized as a sequence of time frames, each frame including a listening phase possibly followed by a receiving phase and/or a transmitting phase. The method, of the preamble sampling type, enables a node to make a time appointment to its child node to transmit them a time window allocation message, each child node then transmitting at least one data packet in the window it has been allocated to. By minimizing the collision risk between packets and by maximizing the time during which the sensors go to sleep, the communication method both reduces the latency and the consumption within the network.
