  • Publication number: 20190281487
    Abstract: An embodiment method, by a user equipment (UE), includes performing a channel measurement (CM) on a first subset of a set of non-zero-power (NZP) CSI reference signal (CSI-RS) resources and an interference measurement (IM) on at least a second subset of the set of NZP CSI-RS resources. The second subset includes one or more NZP CSI-RS ports. The IM is performed according to assumptions: each NZP CSI-RS port in the second subset corresponds to an interference transmission layer, the IM being in accordance with a set of energy per resource element ratios each associated with one NZP CSI-RS resource in the second subset; and other interference not associated with the interference transmission layers is on the first and second subsets. The method includes generating a channel state information (CSI) report based on the CM and IM and transmitting the CSI report to a network.

  • Patent number: 10411935
    Abstract: A method for reducing a peak to average power ratio (PAPR) of an orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) signal. A first signal in the frequency domain is processed to generate a second signal by performing a modular permutation on the first signal according to a modular permutation index, and/or by performing a cyclic shift on the first signal according to a cyclic shift parameter. The second signal is then mapped to a number of tones, and transformed into a time-domain signal for transmission. The modular permutation index and/or the cyclic shift parameter are selected so that the signal for transmission has a PAPR that satisfies a predefined PAPR criteria.

  • Patent number: 10270570
    Abstract: User Equipments (UEs) may be assigned a set of aggregated component carriers for downlink carrier aggregation and/or carrier selection. Some UEs may be incapable of transmitting uplink signals over all component carriers in their assigned set of aggregated component carriers. In such scenarios, a UE may need to perform SRS switching in order to transmit SRS symbols over all of the component carriers. Embodiments of this disclosure provide various techniques for facilitating SRS switching. For example, a radio resource control (RRC) message may be used to signal a periodic SRS configuration parameter. As another example, a downlink control indication (DCI) message may be used to signal an aperiodic SRS configuration parameter. Many other examples are also provided.
