  • Patent number: 10779187
    Abstract: An apparatus of a base station includes a memory device and processing circuitry operatively coupled to the memory device. The processing circuitry processes a buffer status report (BSR) from a user equipment (UE) indicating an amount of data in a buffer of the UE. The processing circuitry further determines a ratio of WLAN uplink data to be transmitted on a WLAN channel of the UE to long term evolution (LTE) uplink data to be transmitted on a LTE channel. Furthermore, the processing circuitry encodes a protocol data unit (PDU) indicating the amount, wherein the PDU is to be transmitted to the UE.

  • Patent number: 10721648
    Abstract: Systems and methods of segregating a SDF of a PDU session are described. The UE transmits a NAS message to the network. The NAS message indicates the SDF, the desired QoS, and a segregation indication that requests that the network establish a separate QoS flow for the SDF even if an existing QoS flow is able to support the specific QoS. The SMF decides whether or not to establish the separate QoS flow and updates filters in the UPF as well as providing a response to the UE containing a similar indication. The UE modifies resources related to the PDU session based on the response. The QoS is indicated as a 5QI and GBR or as a QFI of an existing QoS Flow on which the SDF is to be added if the separate QoS is not established. The QFI is in an unencrypted SDAP header of the NAS message.

  • Publication number: 20190394786
    Abstract: Embodiments of a Generation Node-B (gNB), User Equipment (UE) and methods for communication are generally described herein. The gNB may allocate a resource pool of physical resource blocks (PRBs) and sub-frames for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) sidelink transmissions. The gNB may receive, from a UE, an uplink control message that indicates that the UE requests a V2V sidelink transmission of a prioritized message. The gNB may select, for the V2V sidelink transmission of the prioritized message, one or more PRBs and one or more sub-frames. The gNB may transmit, to the UE and to other UEs, a downlink control message that indicates: the selected PRBs, the selected sub-frames, and that the other UEs are to mute sidelink transmissions in the selected PRBs in the selected sub-frames to enable the V2V sidelink transmission of the prioritized message.
