  • Patent number: 10841001
    Abstract: A message may be too long to be sent all at once. For example, there may be a limit on the number of bits that can be transmitted by a device operating in a power-save mode. The disclosure relates in some aspects to sending a message over packet boundaries (e.g., several frames or sub-frames). The disclosure relates in some aspects to segmenting a Broadcast Information Block and sending the resulting segments over broadcast information window boundaries. In some aspects, this information may be sent via overhead channels. To facilitate this segmentation, information about the segmentation may be included in the information sent from the transmitter to the receiver. For example, a first segment may indicate the number of segments and subsequent segments may indicate the segment number.

  • Publication number: 20190245614
    Abstract: The disclosure relates in some aspects to enabling a user terminal (UT) to obtain information about nearby cells and any beams generated by nearby cells. For example, a network can send a neighbor cell list to UTs, where the list identifies the cells in that neighborhood and provides information about any beams generated by those cells. Thus, a UT can learn the neighboring beams/cells that the UT can reselect to if the current beam/cell becomes weak. In some aspects, the UE can learn the attitude (e.g., pitch, roll, yaw, or any combination thereof) profile of neighboring satellites as well as the pointing angles and the ON-OFF schedules of their beams. In some aspects, the UT can learn a start angle and a span for a satellite and use this information to identify a satellite the UT can reselect to if the current beam/cell becomes weak.

  • Patent number: 8705493
    Abstract: Methods, apparatuses, and systems for announcing services available in a macro-diversity region of a data frame broadcast by a plurality of base stations in a single frequency network to a plurality of subscriber stations, includes a data frame with at least a data region and a macro-diversity region. A media access control (MAC) management message is generated which identifies content and characteristics of the content in the macro-diversity region. Then the MAC management message is transmitted in the data region of the data frame, wherein the MAC management message is decoded by a client station to determine if there is content of interest to the client station in the macro-diversity region of the data frame.

  • Patent number: 8634384
    Abstract: The subject matter disclosed herein provides methods and apparatus, including computer program products, for determining a link performance parameter, such as a supplemental channel characteristic of a wireless link. In one aspect, a base station receives packets from a client station. The base station determines a link performance parameter based on an error rate associated with reception of the packets. The base station then uses the link performance parameter to determine a modulation and coding scheme for use in transmitting packets to the client station. Related systems, apparatus and methods are also described.

  • Patent number: 8331309
    Abstract: A configuration for downlink signals in a wireless communication system, methods of configuring the downlink signals, apparatus for generating the downlink signals, and apparatus for receiving and processing the downlink signals are described herein. Downlink signals in a wireless communication system are reconfigured in series of frames, with each frame carrying a preamble that provides fast cell search and system acquisition. In particular, the preamble includes a primary preamble and a secondary preamble, where the primary preamble is common to all sectors in a base station and all base stations in a system and the secondary preamble is effectively unique to each base station, and may be further distinguished based on a sector basis.

  • Patent number: 8280726
    Abstract: An apparatus for wireless communications includes a processing system. The processing system is configured to receive an input sound stream of a user, split the input sound stream into a plurality of frames, classify each of the frames as one selected from the group consisting of a non-speech frame and a speech frame, determine a pitch of each of the frames in a subset of the speech frames, and identify a gender of the user from the determined pitch. To determine the pitch, the processing system is configured to filter the speech frames to compute an error signal, compute an autocorrelation of the error signal, find a maximum autocorrelation value, and set the pitch to an index of the maximum autocorrelation value.
