  • Patent number: 10938497
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus in a fifth-generation wireless communications, including an example method, in a wireless device, that includes receiving a downlink signal comprising an uplink access configuration index, using the uplink access configuration index to identify an uplink access configuration from among a predetermined plurality of uplink access configurations, and transmitting to the wireless communications network according to the identified uplink access configuration. The example method further includes, in the same wireless device, receiving, in a first subframe, a first Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiplexing (OFDM) transmission formatted according to a first numerology and receiving, in a second subframe, a second OFDM transmission formatted according to a second numerology, the second numerology differing from the first numerology. Variants of this method, corresponding apparatuses, and corresponding network-side methods and apparatuses are also disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20200351983
    Abstract: Embodiments include methods for handling data units in a communication protocol layer (e.g., PDCP) of a network node for a wireless communications network. Such methods include receiving, from a lower protocol layer, one or more first data units with corresponding first sequence numbers. Such methods include, upon expiration of a first timer, forwarding the first data units to a higher protocol layer without receiving one or more second data units, from the lower protocol layer, with corresponding second sequence numbers that are lower than the first sequence numbers. Such methods include forwarding, to the higher protocol layer, any of the second data units that were received from the lower protocol layer during a second time period after expiration of the first timer. Other embodiments include network nodes (e.g., base stations, UEs) configured to perform such methods, as well as computer-readable media containing instructions that embody such methods.

  • Patent number: 10736174
    Abstract: A network node 606,608 and a method for Packet Data Convergence Protocol (PDCP) reordering. The network node is operating in a wireless communications network 600. The network node buffers in order one or more first data units received out of order by a PDCP layer, wherein the one or more first data units are received from a lower layer during a first time period, and wherein the lower layer is a layer below the PDCP layer. When the first time period has expired, the network node forwards the one or more buffered first data units in order to an upper layer and starts a second time period. Further, the network node forwards, to the upper layer and in any order, one or more second data units received from the lower layer during the second time period.

    Abstract: The invention provides compounds of the formula: wherein L1 and L2 are independently selected from O and S; R1 is C3-C6 straight or branched alkyl, C3-C7cycloalkyl, C5-C7cycloalkenyl, adamantly, phenyl or saturated heterocyclyl, any of which being optionally substituted; R2 is H, methyl or ethyl; R5 is NRxCORy, NRxRy, CH2COCH3, CH2C?N, or a 5- or 6-membered heteroaryl group which is optionally substituted; X, Y and Z are independently N or CH; Rx is independently H or C1-C4alkyl; Ry is independently H, CrC4alkyl, phenyl or benzyl, either of which is optionally substituted; n is 0-3; salts, hydrates and N-oxides, wherein the optional substituents are further defined in the claims. The compounds have utility in the prophylaxis or treatment of trypanosomal diseases, such as T. cruzi (Chagas disease).

  • Patent number: 9589753
    Abstract: A method in a control unit for closing a contactor device. The control unit is configured to enable the movement between the closed and opened position by energizing a coil of an electromagnetic circuit. The method includes applying a voltage over the coil; determining, during a first period of time, current through the coil and voltage over the coil and estimating based thereon model parameters for a model predicting the behavior of the current through the coil if the contactor device were to stay in an open position, and measuring, after the ending of the first period of time, current through the coil and determining a difference between, on the one hand the measured current and, on the other hand a predicted current of the model, and repeating the measuring and determining until a state change from open position to closed position is detected by the difference in current.
