  • Publication number: 20220053336
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable media for improving resource management in Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) networks include a Spectrum Access System (SAS) in coordination with one or more CBRS devices (CBSDs) and a Digital Network Architecture center (DNA-C). Resource allocation decisions can be based on one or more policies such as a priority, a preemption capability index and/or a preemption vulnerability index associated with the CBSDs. Resource allocation can also be based on inter-access point (AP) coordination between two or more CBSDs and comparative performance indicators of the two or more CBSDs. Managing interference between two or more groups of CBSDs can be based on the inter-AP coordination and group identifiers associated with the two or more groups. Bandwidth allocation can be modified to the two or more CBSDs and seamless transition can be implemented using timers.

  • Publication number: 20210392509
    Abstract: The disclosed technology relates to a process of dynamically assigning operational parameters for access points within a CBRS (Citizen Broadband Radio Service) network. In particular, the disclosed technology monitors for and detects interference between nearby access points and user equipment devices that may belong to the same enterprise or to different enterprises. Machine learning processes are used to revise the operational parameters that were initially assigned by the Spectrum Access System (SAS). These processes are also used to suggest an updated set of operational parameters to the SAS for the access points. The dynamic assignment reduces interference experienced by the access point with respect to nearby other access points and/or nearby other user equipment. The dynamic assignment aims to improve a quality of communication between the access point and its associated user equipment.

  • Patent number: 11159960
    Abstract: Systems and methods herein can synchronize 802.11ax Uplink (UL) and Downlink (DL) Orthogonal Frequency-Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) schedules between adjacent APs that have overlapping BSSs, which may not be solved by BSS coloring. The method includes several stages. First, the APs detect RF interference from APs with overlapping BSSs. Then, the APs conduct time synchronization between these APs. The various APs can then elect a master scheduler. The master scheduler creates and implements a master schedule between these APs to coordinate use of the radio resource.
