  • Publication number: 20180279263
    Abstract: Various embodiments are described for a trained data transmission for communication systems. A training phase may include a first wireless station exchanging medium reservation messages with a second wireless station to reserve a medium and to select a data transmission parameter. The data transmission parameter may include a modulation scheme and a forward error correction (FEC) coding rate. At least one of the medium reservation messages may include a duration field indicating a duration for which the medium is reserved. A first data phase may include sending data from the first wireless station to the second wireless station according to the selected data transmission parameter. A second data phase may then be performed without first repeating the training phase. The second data phase may include transmitting data from the first wireless station to a second wireless station according to the data transmission parameter.

  • Patent number: 8983010
    Abstract: Briefly, in accordance with one or more embodiments, in response to receiving a single carrier signal that is not phase locked, channel equalization may be applied to the signal via a channel equalizer. The equalized signal may be phase averaged to provide a signal that is at least partially phase stabilized. The channel equalizer may then be trained by feeding back the at least partially phase stabilized phase reference to the channel equalizer. The resulting signal may then be decoded via coherent or quasi-coherent detection.

  • Patent number: 8824582
    Abstract: A base station is arranged for performing channel coding and link adaptation. The base station comprises one or more processors and physical layer circuitry arranged to decode symbols received from a user station to determine an error rate, the symbols received through a plurality of antennas, receive signaling from the user station, the signaling including channel quality information for channel resources of an orthogonal frequency division multiplexed (OFDM) channel, select a modulation and coding rate for transmission of symbols to the user station based at least in part on the error rate, and transmit a transmit power control command to the user station, the transmit power control command based at least in part on a downlink path loss estimate. The base station may also transmit additional transmit power control commands to the user station based on the error rate of subsequently decoded symbols.

  • Patent number: 8411774
    Abstract: A multicarrier communication device using orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) symbols can vary the number of subcarriers being used on multicarrier communication within a network, based on a predetermined criterion and capability information. The capability information can include a data file, which indicates portions of an electromagnetic spectrum for which regulatory body licenses are currently obtained for a network cell. Alternatively, the capability information can include capability information about the wireless devices in communication with the multicarrier communication device, where the capability information for each wireless device includes device power limitations, device bandwidth width limitations, or which subcarriers a wireless device is capable of using.

  • Patent number: 8396147
    Abstract: A MIMO transmitter and method for transmitting a group of sequential OFDM symbols on a downlink channel using a plurality of antennas is disclosed herein. Groups of OFDM subcarriers are individually modulated in accordance with spatial-frequency subcarrier modulation assignments to generate groups of symbol-modulated subcarriers, corresponding symbol-modulated subcarriers are combined for transmission on each of a plurality of spatial channels, and beamforming is performed on the combined symbol-modulated subcarriers for transmission over the spatial channels. The channel comprises a plurality of the groups of the OFDM subcarriers and the OFDM subcarriers within each group of subcarriers and within each group of sequential OFDM symbols have the same spatial-frequency subcarrier modulation assignments. The spatial-frequency subcarrier modulation assignments for each group are determined based on feedback by a receiver, which is determined from spatial channel characteristics of the spatial channels.
