  • Patent number: 11190992
    Abstract: A device communicates with a terminal in association with at least a first other device, using at least two carriers, wherein at least a first carrier towards the terminal is established from the device and at least a second carrier is established towards the terminal from the first other device. The device receives a report indicative of a connection quality of the first carrier, responsive thereto issues a request for handover of the first carrier towards a second device, sends relocation information in relation to the first carrier towards the first other device, and only after sending that relocation information, commands the terminal to perform a handover of the first carrier to the second device. Such device, in cooperation with other devices, accomplishes an optimized handover in terms of a primary component carrier relocation from a serving eNB towards a target eNB, while a secondary component carrier is maintained.

  • Patent number: 11018984
    Abstract: Various communication systems may benefit from the appropriate control of the timing of communication. For example, certain wireless communication systems may benefit from packet data convergence protocol windows, for example in the case of split bearers being in use. A method can include transmitting a plurality of protocol data units over a bearer mapped to a plurality of logical channels. The protocol data units can be transmitted in a radio link control unacknowledged mode. The method can also include managing at least one transmission characteristic of the transmitted plurality of protocol data units.

  • Patent number: 10945128
    Abstract: Data forwarding may be useful in many communication systems. Thus, for example, data forwarding support may be useful in dual connectivity in, for example, the third generation partnership project (3GPP) and more particularly to dual connectivity with enabled downlink (DL) data back forwarding. A method can include receiving, by a first network node, an indication indicating that for at least one split bearer, data received prior to the indication is to be forwarded to a second network node. The indication can also indicate that the at least one split bearer should be kept or maintained at the first network node. The method can also include, in response to the received indication, forwarding the data for the at least one split bearer received prior to the indication to the second network node.

  • Patent number: 10764771
    Abstract: A method for channel signaling is described. The method includes determining (e.g., by a UE) whether at least one DL subframe is a valid reference resource. If the at least one DL subframe is not a valid reference resource, reporting measurements of a DL channel measured during the at least one DL subframe is inhibited. The method may include determining (e.g., by an eNB) whether reporting of the at least one DL subframe of a DL channel is required. If reporting is not required, a message configured to cause the at least one UE to inhibit reporting measurements of the DL channel (e.g., CQI measurements) measured during the at least one DL subframe is sent to the UE. Determining whether the at least one downlink subframe is a valid reference resource is based at least in part on the message. Apparatus and computer readable media are also described.
