  • Publication number: 20210273717
    Abstract: Systems, methods, apparatuses, and computer program products for dynamic cell-specific delay for timing scaling in a non-terrestrial network (NTN). For example, certain embodiments may utilize a cell-common delay composed of FL and part of SL (until a cell-specific reference surface). A network node (e.g., a gNB) may calculate the cell-common delay as a function of time (T_c(t)) and may provide this function to the UEs (the satellite path may beis deterministic). The function of time may be a combination of two functions representing the FL and SL. The function can may be broadcasted in a system information block (SIB) or transmitted directly to the UE through radio resource control (RRC) signaling when it becomes active, is handed over, and/or regularly updated.

  • Publication number: 20210144611
    Abstract: A serving network node may be configured to determine an altitude position state of a terminal device. The altitude position state may be determined using information in a plurality of reports received from the terminal device, the reports comprising at least one indication of signal reception quality (201). For example, the altitude position state may be determined by comparing the at least one indication of the signal reception quality of the plurality of reports to a comparison model, or by comparing cells in the plurality of reports to information of cells in a certain area (202). Further, more reports may be requested from the terminal device for improved certainty of the determining, if needed. The determined altitude position state of the terminal device may further be transmitted, as a part of a handover process, to a handover target network node (203).

  • Patent number: 10932177
    Abstract: Various communication systems may benefit from improved handover techniques. For example, a communication system may allow for an autonomous user equipment handover operation in a licensed or unlicensed spectrum. A method may include receiving a measurement condition at a user equipment. The measurement condition may include a maximum duration of time for sending a message to a base station of a source cell. The message may inform the base station of the source cell that an autonomous handover is initiated. The method may also include initiating the sending of the message to the base station of the source cell during the duration of time Tamer to indicate of the measurement condition. In addition, the method may include commencing the autonomous handover after the duration of time of the measurement condition has expired or upon successful transmission of the message to the base station of the source cell.

  • Publication number: 20210037422
    Abstract: An apparatus which is able to communicate based on at least two communication methods, wherein each communication method is configured to communicate with access networks by using at least one subflow, acquires (S41) information from at least one of the communication methods for at least one of the subflows and provides (S42) the information to a subflow control entity at a higher layer of the apparatus. Based on the information, the subflow control entity evaluates (S43) whether a change will occur in the at least one of the subflows. In case the change is evaluated to occur in the at least one of the subflows, the subflow control entity evaluates (S44) when the change will occur, and evaluates (S45) whether the change evaluated to occur impacts a specific requirement of delivering packets by using the at least one of the subflows. In case the change is evaluated to impact the specific requirement, the subflow control entity changes (S46) usage of the subflows for delivering packets.
