  • Publication number: 20240049154
    Abstract: Based on a configuration of a pre-allocated sequence of first SSBs of a first predetermined number, which comprise second SSBs of a second predetermined number and third SSBs of a third predetermined number, a network apparatus of an access network of a cellular communication system determines (S503) a usage for resources associated with the third SSBs. According to the configuration of the pre-allocated sequence of first SSBs, the second SSBs are to be utilized in a beam management procedure including an initial access procedure and the third SSBs are not necessarily to be utilized in the beam management procedure including the initial access procedure which enables UEs to gain initial access to the cellular communication system via the access network. The network apparatus broadcasts (S505) the usage in the beam management procedure.

  • Publication number: 20230269029
    Abstract: Systems, methods, apparatuses, and computer program products for conditional hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) acknowledgement (ACK). For instance, a user equipment (UE) may estimate, during reception of a downlink transmission with x repetitions, an amount of extra energy that may be needed to help ensure successful decoding. The UE may then express this estimate as a quantity of repetitions (y) needed for successful reception, and may inform the radio access network (RAN) of this quantity (e.g., at least one round-trip time (RTT) before the last repetition of the x repetitions is sent). The RAN may handle this message as a conditional positive ACK. The RAN may send the quantity of repetitions y, and may implicitly assume an ACK for that TBS after sending the y repetitions. The RAN may send the next transport blocks (TBS) for that HARQ process after completing transmission of they repetitions.

  • Publication number: 20230189211
    Abstract: Techniques for paging user equipments (UEs) in a wireless communication network include clustering paging occasions of multiple UEs in a time domain on the network node side and broadcasting at least one reference signal from the network node for the UEs shortly before the clustered POs, thereby providing the power saving benefit for the UEs and without having to impose a much larger power consumption of the network node itself or cause the network node to be always on to broadcast the at least one reference signal. The at least one reference signal broadcasted may be based on SSBs, TRS and/or CSI-RS. Thus, the techniques allow the reference signals to be made available for the UEs in the RRCJDLE/RRCJN ACTIVE state too.
