  • Patent number: 11991562
    Abstract: Techniques are described for improving service continuity for Multicast and Broadcast Services (MBS) communications during handover. Techniques are included for supporting lossless handover and data forwarding during handover for peer-to-multiple (PTM) MBS transmission. Lossless handover may be achieved in part by the user equipment (UE) providing to the target base station an indication of the next packet of the MBS session to be received following an RRC reconfiguration message, and an indication of any MBS packets provided by the source base station prior to the RRC reconfiguration message that were not properly received by the UE. Data forwarding may be performed from the source base station to the target base station if the MBS session was not configured on the target base station prior to the handover. Data forwarding may be omitted if the MBS session was configured on the target base station prior to the handover.

  • Patent number: 11991079
    Abstract: Systems and methods for implementing various metrics for in integrated IAB networks are disclosed. A child IAB node may determine metrics regarding one or more of its data flows and report these metrics to an upstream IAB node (that is a parent node and/or an IAB donor). The upstream node may determine a data flow prioritization configuration using these metrics that it either uses itself or sends back to the child IAB node or another IAB node of the IAB network for use there. Metrics discussed include a number of hops metric, an aggregate throughput per BH RLC channel ID (or per routing ID) metric, a fairness index per BH RLC channel ID (or per routing ID) metric, a packet drop metric, and a per-hop latency for aggregated traffic per BH RLC channel ID (or per routing ID) per IAB node metric.

  • Patent number: 11991771
    Abstract: Inter-cell mobility may include decoding a first radio resource control (RRC) reconfiguration message received from a first cell. The first RRC reconfiguration message may comprise a first portion of configuration information for performing a cell change to a second cell. A cell change message received from the first cell may be decoded. The cell change message may indicate that a cell change to the second cell is to be performed. A cell change acknowledgment may be encoded for transmission to the second cell. A second RRC reconfiguration message received from the second cell may be decoded. The second RRC reconfiguration message may comprise a second portion of configuration information for performing the cell change to the second cell. The second portion of configuration information may comprise a remaining portion of configuration information to perform the cell change to the second cell.

  • Patent number: 11985652
    Abstract: Systems and methods for enhancing the use of pre-emptive buffer status reports (pre-BSRs) in wireless communications systems implementing integrated access and backhaul (IAB) networks are disclosed herein. In some cases, an IAB node can re-classify the LCGs of one or more incoming data flows according to such pre-BSR usage. This may involve the use of and extended medium access control (MAC) control element (MAC CE) having more LCG bits than previously contemplated, having sub-LCG bits, or that includes further LCG classification information bits. Other embodiments use a priority index for LCGs in an extended pre-BSR MAC CE. The priority index may include one or more of a priority field, a prioritized bit rate (PBR), and/or a bucket size duration (BSD) that is reported to an IAB donor. Other embodiments leverage the provision of additional grants from an IAB node to a child IAB node to reduce unwanted pre-BSR effects.

  • Patent number: 11985645
    Abstract: Reporting UL Tx DC sub-carrier location information may include decoding a radio resource control (RRC) message received from a base station. The RRC message may comprise a configuration for dynamically reporting uplink (UL) transmit (Tx) direct current (DC) sub-carrier location information. A change associated with at boast one previous UL Tx DC sub-carrier location may be determined to have occurred, thereby creating at least one new UL Tx DC sub-carrier location. In response to determining the change, a medium access control (MAC) control element (MAC CE) may be encoded for transmission to the base station. The MAC CE may include information corresponding to the at least one new UL Tx DC sub-carrier location.

  • Publication number: 20240137764
    Abstract: A user equipment (UE) may attempt to access an edge data network. The UE generates a first credential based on a second credential that was generated for a procedure between the UE and a network. The UE then generates an identifier corresponding to the first credential and generates a message authentication code based on the first credential and a count, wherein the count is associated with an identifier of an edge network client running on the UE. The UE then transmits an application registration request, message to a server associated with an edge data network, the application registration request message including the count, the message authentication code, the identifier corresponding to the first credential, and a public land mobile network identifier (PLMN ID) of the network. The UE then receives an authentication accept message or an authentication reject message from the server associated with the edge data network.
