  • Patent number: 11191120
    Abstract: User equipment communicates by means of a primary base node and at least one secondary base node of a cellular network that are respectively assigned to different radio access networks. The user equipment sends a first message comprising its available capabilities to the primary base node, and receives a first indication from the primary base node relating to the capabilities being used by the primary base node. It sends a second message to the secondary base node, comprising those capabilities not being used by the primary base node. and receives a second indication from the secondary base node relating to the capabilities being used by the secondary base node. It sends a third message with still unused capabilities to the primary base node. and initiates a communication link with a remote terminal by means of the primary and the secondary base nodes using the configured capabilities.

  • Publication number: 20210223354
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for positioning of a user equipment operating in a cellular network, the user equipment being configured to ascertain location information of base stations of the cellular network. The method comprises the steps of: obtaining cell specific reference signals from a serving base station and at least one other base station, obtaining from the serving base station a synchronization indication relating to time synchronization among the serving base station and the at least one other base station, determining a time difference of arrival of the reference signals of at least two base stations that are time synchronized, and determining a position of the user equipment based on the location information of the respective base stations and the determined time differences of arrival.

  • Publication number: 20210120616
    Abstract: A method for data transmission between a user equipment operating in a cellular network, and a control terminal accessible from the cellular network. The user equipment operates in a communication connection to the control terminal by means of first and second wireless carriers, with one of the control terminal and the user equipment acting as transmitting apparatus, and the other as receiving apparatus. The transmitting apparatus sends content as a first data packet over the first wireless carrier and as a second data packet over the second wireless carrier. The receiving apparatus attempts to receive the first data packet over the first wireless carrier and the second data packet over the second wireless carrier, and sends over the first and second wireless carriers a message indicating whether at least one of the first and second data packet was successfully received.
