  • Patent number: 10396966
    Abstract: Indication of delivery-path information may benefit various communication systems. For example, wireless communication systems may benefit from per-protocol data unit delivery-path indication to data recipient or from setting a timer expiry value dependent on such received information. A method can comprise sending, by a data-sending protocol entity, a control protocol data unit. The control protocol data unit can identify protocol data units destined to a data-receiving protocol entity. The method can also comprise providing in the control protocol data unit, for each of the identified protocol data units, a direct or indirect indication of at least one delay figure of a delivery path chosen for an initial transmission of the identified protocol data unit.

  • Patent number: 10356686
    Abstract: A technique is provided for sending, by a first base station (BS), a data rate test notification to one or more neighbor BSs, performing, by the first BS, a data rate test between the first BS and the core network, receiving, by the first BS, a data rate reply message from one or more neighbor BSs indicating whether or not the data rate test caused a decrease in the data rate available to the neighbor BS, and reducing, by the first BS, an amount of resources available to the first BS for allocation to one or more bearers if one or more of the data rate reply messages indicate that the data rate test caused a decrease in the data rate available to the neighbor BS.

  • Patent number: 10341988
    Abstract: Content service(s) to device(s) is provided. Availability of broadcast transmission of said content is determined after an indication is signaled that a dedicated unicast radio bearer is needed/is not needed for reception of said content. Subsequent to reception of the indication the content is transmitted over a dedicated unicast radio bearer or broadcasting. Transmission of the content can be supported by an indication of a need for a continued network connection for the device even when the amount of unicast traffic over the connection in a core network does not justify maintenance of the connection to cause the core network to refrain from releasing said network connection. Unicasting of content to a device moving from a first to a second cell can be continued based on signaling of a message to a control entity of a second cell, the message providing information of the identity of the service(s).

  • Patent number: 10334471
    Abstract: Various communication systems may benefit from appropriate handling of reconfiguration. For example, certain wireless communication systems may benefit from lossless bearer reconfiguration when handling a transition from the user of a longer sequence number to a shorter sequence number. A method can include determining, by a protocol entity, if a next expected highest count value among count values associated with protocol data units received is more than a pre-defined limit ahead of a lowest count value among count values associated with protocol data units expected to be received. The method can also include resetting the next expected highest count value to a new value corresponding to a predefined upper limit, conditional on the determination.

  • Publication number: 20190190665
    Abstract: A method and apparatus may include configuring a split bearer. The split bearer is configured with a first data path between a user equipment and a first network node, and the split bearer is also configured with a second data path between the user equipment and a second network node. The split bearer is configured for a switching operation. The switching operation includes an operation where data transmission is restricted to be towards only one of the first data path and the second data path. The method also includes first transmitting on the split bearer towards the first data path. The method also includes performing the switching operation. The transmitting towards the first data path is switched to transmitting towards the second data path. The method also includes second transmitting on the split bearer towards the second data path.

  • Patent number: 9894558
    Abstract: Lower and upper bounds for flow-control data requests between network nodes Methods and devices are shown for a wireless communication network where a user equipment consumes radio resources provided by at least two different network nodes, at least one node being a master node and at least another node being a secondary node. The secondary node determines a desired amount of data to be targeted to the user equipment and then transmits an indication of the desired amount of data to the master node. A master node receives an indication of the desired amount of data targeted to the user equipment and then controls the amount of data transmitted to the user equipment via the secondary node based on that indication.
