  • Patent number: 9819446
    Abstract: A method for operating a downlink transmitter radio to automatically determine transmission parameters includes monitoring the spectral content of a range of frequencies, and identifying, based on the monitored spectral content, spectral characteristics associated with noise or interference. The downlink transmission channel carrier frequency and channel frequency bandwidth are determined based on the spectral characteristics of the interference together with operating requirements of the wireless transmission system.

  • Patent number: 9787354
    Abstract: A broadband transceiver includes an input to receive an RF signal, an output to output an RF transmit signal, a receiver section coupled to the input, and a transmitter section coupled to the output. A processor coupled to the receiver section and the transmitter section determines and generates an inverse waveform that will result in attenuation of undesired portions of a received RF signal when summed with the received signal, including optionally at one or more of an RF stage and an IF stage. A summing junction coupled between the processor and receiver section sums the inverse waveform with the received signal.

  • Patent number: 9584170
    Abstract: A broadband superheterodyne receiver. Embodiments include an input for receiving an RF signal including an RF data signal at a carrier frequency. An RF mixer coupled to the input shifts the RF data signal from the carrier frequency to an IF frequency. An IF band pass filter coupled to the mixer has a pass band, and band pass filters the signal near the IF frequency. A spectrum analyzer provides information representative of the spectral characteristics of the received RF signal around the RF data signal at the carrier frequency. An IF controller is coupled to the RF mixer and to the spectrum analyzer. The IF controller: (1) determines an interference-mitigating IF frequency within the pass band of the band pass filter that will result in attenuation of undesired portions of the RF signal, and (2) controls the RF mixer to shift the RF data signal to the interference-mitigating IF frequency.

  • Patent number: 9088388
    Abstract: The high quality PCS communications are enabled in environments where adjacent PCS service bands operate with out-of-band harmonics that would otherwise interfere with the system's operation. The highly bandwidth-efficient communications method combines a form of time division duplex (TDD), frequency division duplex (FDD), time division multiple access (TDMA), orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM), spatial diversity, and polarization diversity in various unique combinations. The method provides excellent fade resistance. The method enables changing a user's available bandwidth on demand by assigning additional TDMA slots during the user's session.

  • Patent number: 6944299
    Abstract: An apparatus and method provide for synchronized operation of encryption processes at two remote communication terminals. A first one of the terminals detects information associated with a current time during the establishment of a connection between the two terminals. The current time information is then utilized to create a start encryption time. That start encryption time information is transmitted from the first terminal to the second terminal. Both terminals then monitor the passage of time and begin encryption in a synchronous manner when the current time matches the start encryption time.

  • Patent number: 6084932
    Abstract: A method for a wireless discrete multitone spread spectrum communications system, synchronizes the remote station to the base station. The method begins with the step of generating a clock signal at the base station. The base station then derives a synchronization symbol pattern from the base station clock signal and spreads the it with spreading codes that distributes the symbol pattern over a plurality of discrete tones, forming a discrete multitone spread spectrum signal. The base station then transmits the spread signal to the remote station. The remote station generates a first clock signal and samples the discrete tones using the remote station first clock signal, forming a first sampled signal. Then the remote station applies the first sampled signal to a matched filter bank, forming a frequency error signal. The method then adjusts a frequency of the remote station first clock signal using the frequency error signal, forming a second clock signal.
