  • Patent number: 6954470
    Abstract: A system and method for wireless communication between a plurality of subscriber units and a base station, the base station communicating information signals from an originating source to a destination subscriber unit over a channel at an assigned one of a plurality of frequencies using repetitive time frames, each said time frame comprising a sequence of time slots. The channel is defined as having the same one or more time slots from the sequence of time slots in one or more of the time frames. The base station includes a central processing unit capable of assigning a duration of time for the information signals being sent to the destination subscriber unit. The duration equals the duration of one or more time slots in the same frame. The central processing unit maintains a memory of which time slots of each time frame have been assigned and provides the time slot assignment, and therefore channel assignment, by consulting said memory.

  • Patent number: 5842137
    Abstract: A subscriber unit for a wireless digital telephone system is disclosed. An equalizer for receiving I and Q samples is disclosed which is in the form. The I and Q samples are complex sample pairs provided at a frequency. The equalizer receives a training signal in the form of complex I and Q sample pairs. A training signal is affected by undesirable characteristics that might be present in the I and Q samples. A comparator compares the actual input training signal with the desired output to obtain a set of weighting coefficients for the equalizer to produce the desired output. A frequency correction circuit provides a corrected frequency signal for the frequency of the sample pairs from the weighting coefficients.

  • Patent number: 5778055
    Abstract: Analog signals representing individual digital values (.+-.1, .+-.3) pass through a telephone line to a receiver. These signals may be first provided in a pseudo random sequence. A linear echo canceller and a first adder eliminate, to an extent, echo signals resulting from second analog signals transmitted on the same telephone line by the receiver. A non-linear echo canceller and a second adder further reduce the echo signals and specifically reduce non-linear components in the echo signals. Adjustable signal delays achieve optimal performance of the linear and non-linear echo cancellers. An equalizer containing four (4) different modules then compensates for signal distortions introduced by the telephone line and minimizes the effect of noise in the telephone line. The equalizer modules are a digital gain control element, a feed forward digital filter and two (2) feedback digital filters. A detector module produces in one of several different ways at the receiver an estimate of the digital data (.+-.1, .+-.

  • Patent number: 5687194
    Abstract: A system for the wireless transmission of multiple information signals utilizing digital time division circuits between a base station and a plurality of subscriber stations. The subscriber stations may be fixed or movable. The number of time division circuits is determined by the transmission quality of the signals. The base station is interconnected with an external information network, which may be analog and/or digital. The information signals are selected from the group consisting of voice, data, facsimile, video, computer and instrumentation signals. The modulation level of the signals and the power applied to the system are adjusted in accordance with signal error detection in the system. The system is provided with spatial diversity by using a plurality of antennas selectively spaced from each other to provide relatively high signal reception despite signal fading. The base station operates over a plurality of RF channel pairs.
