  • Publication number: 20210289531
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure provide a method for multiple input multiple output (MIMO) communications. For example, scheduling information is received at a terminal device from a network device, the scheduling information at least indicates physical resource blocks shared by a demodulation reference signal (DMRS) of the terminal device and a further DMRS of at least one further terminal device, and different sub-carriers allocated to the DMRS and the further DMRS in each of physical resource blocks, and the number of physical resource blocks is indivisible by a total number of the terminal device and the at least one further terminal device. The DMRS is generated, and a length of the DMRS is determined based on the number of physical resource blocks and the number of at least one further terminal device. The DMRS is transmitted to the network device on the sub-carriers allocated to the DMRS in the physical resource blocks.

  • Patent number: 10425853
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and computer program product are described that receive an indication of power levels at the base station in a wireless communications system from each user equipment of user equipments served by the base station and determine whether at least one user equipment of those user equipments is capable to overlap at least one same time-frequency resource as at least one user equipment of a remainder of those user equipments. In response to the determination that at least one user equipment is capable to overlap with at least one user equipment of the remainder, then such overlap is scheduled. Based on the overlap being scheduled, packets from the one or more user equipments received are then decoded using an advanced receiver process.

  • Patent number: 7729433
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for wireless transmission from a mobile unit to a base station includes multiplexing a pilot signal and a data signal, wherein the data signal operates at a data rate by splitting the data signal into a plurality of data streams; applying a pilot gain to the pilot channel, wherein the data gain and the pilot gain are a function of the data rate; and combining the plurality of data streams and the pilot signal into a subset of sub-carriers. The subset of sub-carriers are transmitted using Discrete Fourier Transform Spread OFDMA.

  • Publication number: 20060006037
    Abstract: A retractable handle device for a bag includes a mounting unit provided at a side of the bag, two retractable handlebars, and a flexible grip. The retractable handlebars each have an outer tube and an inner tube slidably inserted into the outer tube. The inner tubes each have a top end. The flexible grip has two ends connected respectively to the top ends of the inner tubes. The retractable handlebars are slantly mounted on the mounting unit and extended upwardly in direction toward each other such that longitudinal extending lines from the retractable handlebars meet above the mounting unit and define a contained angle. Therefore, when the inner tubes are pulled out of the outer tubes, the flexible grip is relatively deformed to fit the change of a distance between the top ends of the inner tubes.
