  • Publication number: 20220015093
    Abstract: An apparatus of an Integrated Access and Backhaul (IAB) node includes processing circuitry coupled to a memory. To configure the IAB node for resource allocation within an IAB network, the processing circuitry is to decode radio resource control (RRC) signaling from a central unit (CU) function of an IAB donor node. The RRC signaling configures first time-domain resources for a parent backhaul link between a mobile termination (M) function of the IAB node and a distributed unit (DU) function of a parent IAB node, and second time-domain resources for a child backhaul link between a DU function of the IAB node and a MT function of a child IAB node. Uplink data is encoded for transmission to the parent IAB node based on the first time-domain resources. Downlink data is encoded for transmission to the child IAB node based on the second time-domain resources.

  • Publication number: 20210403334
    Abstract: A method of forming AEI-type zeolites in a hydrothermal synthesis without the use of hydrogen fluoride (HF) and in the presence of an FAU zeolite NaY with SAR ?5, a Y zeolite with a SAR ?5, or a combination thereof. A gel composition formed upon using this method includes one or more sources of silica, alumina, organic structure directing agents (OSDA), and alkali metal ions; zeolite seeds; and water. This gel composition is defined by the molar ratios of: SiO2/AI2O3 18:1 to 100:1; M2O/SiO2 0.15:1 to 0.30:1; ROH/SiO2 0.05:1 to 0.13:1; and H2O/SiO2 5:1 to 20:1; wherein M is the alkali metal ion and R is an organic moiety derived from the OSDA. This gel composition, after reacting at a temperature between 135° C. to about 200° C. for 10 hours to 168 hours forms the crystalline AEI-type zeolite having a silica to alumina ratio (SiO2:AI2O3) that is greater than 15:1.

  • Publication number: 20210400660
    Abstract: An apparatus of an Integrated Access and Backhaul (IAB) node includes processing circuitry coupled to a memory. To configure the IAB node for time-domain resource management within an IAB network, the processing circuitry is to detect that a time-domain resource assigned to a child communication link of the IAB node is available. An uplink message is encoded for transmission by a mobile terminal (MT) function of the IAB node to a parent IAB node. The uplink message indicates availability of the time-domain resource for a parent backhaul link between the IAB node and the parent IAB node. A downlink message from the parent IAB node is decoded. The downlink message is received via the parent backhaul link and using the time-domain resource.

  • Publication number: 20210385699
    Abstract: Systems and methods of handover in an information-centric network are described. The ICN-CF receives an update request from an ICN ICN-AMF indicating handover of a UE from a source NG-RAN to a target NG-RAN. The ICN-CF transmits, to an ICN router, an update request to update a PIT and/or FIB table to enable data communications with the UE after handover. The request includes the UE and target NG-RAN, and if the source and target ICN-PoA are different, the source and target ICN-PoA and the ICN-GW.

  • Publication number: 20210360550
    Abstract: An apparatus of an Integrated Access and Backhaul (IAB) node includes processing circuitry coupled to a memory. To configure the LAB node for inter-IAB node discovery and measurements within an IAB network, the processing circuitry is to encode a first synchronization signal block (SSB-A) for transmission to an access UE using a first frequency resource from a synchronization raster set of frequency resources. A second SSB (SSB-B) is encoded for transmission to a second IAB node using a second frequency resource from an off-raster set of frequency resources. The off-raster set is non-overlapping with the synchronization raster set of frequency resources and the SSB-B being time-division multiplexed with the SSB-A. A measurement report from the second IAB node is decoded. The measurement report is based on the SSB-B and associated with a backhaul link between the IAB node and the second IAB node.

  • Publication number: 20210359871
    Abstract: Systems and methods of providing policy and charging control in an information-centric network are described. An interest packet is transmitted from a content consumer to a holder through a gNB, ICN-PoA and ICN-GW. The interest packet has a prefix identifying content to be retrieved and a type field indicating an interest packet. The ICN-PoA modifies the interest packet to include a type of service (TS) field having the identity of the consumer and then transmitted to the ICN-GW when the content is neither created nor cached inside the 5G network. A data packet that includes the prefix, a type field indicating a data packet and the TS field is returned from the ICN-GW. The data packet is modified by the ICN-PoA to remove the TS field and transmitted to the consumer. The interest and data packets are logged and reported to an ICN-CF for generation of charging records.

  • Publication number: 20210360534
    Abstract: To configure an IAB node for DL power control, the processing circuitry of the node is to decode at a DU function of the IAB node, an UL reference signal received via a communication channel from an MT function of a second IAB node. A path loss associated with the communication channel is determined, based on at least one measurement of the UL reference signal. DL transmission power is determined using the path loss. Data is encoded for a transmission to the MT function of the second IAB node using the DL transmission power, the transmission further using a DL BWP associated with the channel.

  • Publication number: 20210345279
    Abstract: Embodiments of an integrated access and backhaul (IAB) node, a User Equipment (UE), and methods of communication are generally described herein. An IAB node may operate as a relay between an IAB donor and a UE. The IAB node may receive, from the IAB donor, first signaling that indicates a first timing advance (TA) offset between the IAB donor and the IAB node. The IAB node may determine a second TA offset between the IAB node and the UE. The second TA offset may be based on a timing difference between a transmission time of a downlink frame transmitted to the UE and a reception time of an uplink frame from the UE. The IAB node may transmit, to the UE, second signaling that indicates the first TA offset and the second TA offset.

  • Patent number: 11082950
    Abstract: Embodiments of a network User Equipment (nUE), wearable User Equipment (wUE), and methods for sidelink communication are generally described herein. The nUE may transmit a control channel that allocates a subframe as either a downlink subframe or an uplink subframe for a sidelink communication between the nUE and a wearable User Equipment (wUE). When the control channel allocates the subframe as a downlink subframe, the nUE may contend for access to channel resources. The contention may include transmission of a transmitter resources acquisition and sounding (TAS) channel in a physical resource block (PRB) and an attempted detection of a receiver resources acquisition and sounding (RAS) channel from the wUE in the PRB. When the control channel allocates the subframe as an uplink subframe, the wUE may contend for access to the channel resources.
