  • Patent number: 11917644
    Abstract: Methods and devices may be provided for aggregating component carriers in the licensed spectrum with at least one component carriers in the licensed exempt spectrum. Control information may be processed in a wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) while receiving and sending information on a primary component carrier (PCC) and a supplementary component carrier (SuppCC). A PCC subframe with a control portion and a data portion may be received. Resource assignment information associated with a downlink shared channel on the PCC may be embedded in the control portion of the subframe. Based on the resource assignment information on the PCC, resource assignment information associated with a downlink shared channel on the SuppCC may be identified in the data portion of the PCC subframe. A SuppCC subframe of the shared channel on the SuppCC may be processed as per the identified resource assignment information associated with the downlink shared channel on the SuppCC.

  • Publication number: 20220132427
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are described. A long term evolution-advanced (LTE-A) wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) includes a transceiver and a processor. The transceiver receives discontinuous reception (DRX) configuration information. The processor, in response to the received DRX information, controls the transceiver to monitor LTE-A physical downlink control channels (PDCCHs) in subframes in a first frequency band during an active time. The processor further, in response to detecting a downlink assignment in an LTE-A PDCCH in the first frequency band during the active time, wherein the downlink assignment indicates a second frequency band and assigned subcarriers within the second frequency band, to receive an LTE-A physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH) K subframes after a transmission of the downlink assignment. The second frequency band is different than the first frequency band.

  • Patent number: 11284343
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are described. A long term evolution (LTE) base station includes a transmitter and a processor. The transceiver and the processor send, to a wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU), an indication of a first set of subframes associated with a first power control parameter and a second set of subframes associated with a second power control parameter. The transceiver and the processor further receive a data transmission, from the WTRU, having a power based on at least one of the first power control parameter and the second power control parameter.

  • Patent number: 11234213
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and instrumentalities are disclosed to propagate announcement and de-announcement of a resource across one or more networks. A first entity, which may be a hosting service capability layer (SCL), may receive a request from an issuer to announce a resource. The first entity may create a representation of the resource. The representation may be referred to as an announced resource. The first entity may send an announce resource request to a second entity (e.g., an announced-to SCL), which may be registered with the first entity. The announce resource request may be sent over an mId interface. The first entity may receive a first response from the second entity over the mId interface indicating that the second entity created the announced resource.
