  • Publication number: 20220264552
    Abstract: The systems, methods, and techniques described in this disclosure allow different wireless systems that operate in accordance with different Radio Access Technologies (RATs) to coexist within a same frequency domain with minimal (if any) inter-RAT interference. Specifically, the described techniques allocate a respective, mutually-exclusive portion of a plurality of Space-Time-Frequency (STF) resources for use in communicating in accordance with each different RAT. For example, mutually-exclusive portions of spatial domain resources, time domain resources, and/or frequency domain resources may be respectively allocated for exclusive use by different RATs. A centralized, third-party controller (120) may perform the allocations, or the allocations may be cooperatively arrived at between systems supporting different RATs, e.g., in a peer-to-peer manner. STF resource allocations may be static and/or dynamic over time, and STF resources may be uniquely identified by respective resource identifiers.

  • Patent number: 11412569
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes methods and apparatuses for beamforming for communication over preferred resources of a wireless network. A user device receives a signal from a plurality of antenna arrays of one or more base stations. The signal is transmitted, by the base stations, over a set of dedicated communication resources of a wireless network. Each of the base stations may dedicate a same set of resource elements for narrow-band communication with user devices outside of a standard range of a single antenna array. The user device determines a quality of the signal received over the dedicated communication resources and generates an index to identify preferred resources for communicating with the one or more base stations. The user device then communicates the index to the base stations to enable the base stations to establish a narrow-band wireless connection with the user device.

  • Publication number: 20220217798
    Abstract: Techniques and apparatuses are described for enabling dual connectivity with secondary cell-user equipment. In some aspects, a base station (121) serving as a primary cell forms a base station-user equipment dual connectivity (BUDC) group (410) by configuring a user equipment (UE, 111) as a secondary cell-user equipment (SC-UE, 420) to provide a secondary cell. The base station (121) or SC-UE (420) can then add other UEs (112, 113, 114) to the BUDC group (410) thereby enabling dual connectivity for the UEs through the primary cell or secondary cell provided by the SC-UE (420). In some cases, the SC-UE (420) schedules resources of an air interface (302) by which the other UEs to communicate with the SC-UE (420). By so doing, the SC-UE (420) can communicate data with the other UEs (112, 113, 114) of the BUDC group (410) without communicating through a base station (121, 122), which decreases latency of communications between the UEs (111-114) of the BUDC group (410).

  • Patent number: 11382056
    Abstract: The present disclosure describes techniques and systems for location-based resource scheduling, to reduce or eliminate receiving transmissions, by the base station, over one or more communication resources allocated for another communication. In some aspects, a user device (102) establishes a wireless connection (106) with a base station (104). The user device (102) receives, from the base station (104), a propagation delay message (304). The propagation delay message (304) schedules a delay for a transmission of the user device (102). The delay is based on a location of the user device (1020) being outside of a standard distance (614) from the base station (104). The user device (102) then transmits, to the base station (104), the transmission according to the propagation delay message (304).

  • Publication number: 20220200679
    Abstract: This document describes techniques and apparatuses for parallel beamforming training with coordinated base stations. In particular, a user equipment (UE) uses time-division multiplexing (TDM) to perform parallel beamforming training with multiple base stations within a coordination set. The TDM interleaves beamforming training signals associated with different base stations. In other words, at least one beamforming training signal associated with a first base station occurs between two beamforming training signals associated with a second base station. Example types of beamforming training signals include downlink pilot signals, uplink feedback signals, uplink pilot signals, and downlink feedback signals. In some situations, the different types of beamforming training signals are further interleaved together based on expected rates at which channel conditions change. By interleaving beamforming training signals, narrow beams can be formed to support millimeter-wave (mmW) communications at cell edges.

  • Publication number: 20220201503
    Abstract: Techniques and apparatuses are described for enabling a base station to enable peer-to-peer communication among multiple user equipment (UE) over a mmWave link. The techniques described herein overcome challenges that the multiple UEs might otherwise face in trying to establish peer-to-peer links on their own. By relying on the base station to grant air interface resources for the UE to perform peer-to-peer communications with the UE, the UE can communicate directly with the other UE, independent of links that the UE or the other UE maintains with the base station. Furthermore, reliance on the base station may help the UE and the other UE mitigate interference from other nearby mmWave links that are separate from the peer-to-peer wave link. In addition, by relying on the base station to specify the beam sweeping pattern, beam acquisition by the UE and the other UE may be improved.

  • Patent number: 11350439
    Abstract: This document describes methods, devices, systems, and means for user-equipment-coordination-set (404) control aggregation that facilitates more efficient control-plane signaling in comparison to conventional wireless communication systems. Overhead for control-plane signaling is reduced by communicating reports and control commands for the multiple user equipments (110) in the user-equipment-coordination-set (404) in a single message instead of communicating a single control message for each user equipment (110). Additionally, the user-equipment-coordination-set (404) uses joint-reception and joint-transmission, to increase the reliability of communicating reports and control commands, especially in the case of challenging radio communication conditions between a base station (121) and an individual UE (110) located near the edge of a cell provided by the vase station.

  • Patent number: 11336327
    Abstract: Techniques and apparatuses are described for enabling base stations (121, 122) to coordinate for canceling cross-link interference (380). The techniques and apparatuses described herein overcome challenges that a single base station (121) might otherwise face in trying to compensate a reception (131) by the base station (121) for cross-link interference (382) from a transmission (132) by another base station (122). The techniques and apparatuses described herein enable the base stations (121, 122) to form coordination sets to exchange information to enable the base stations (121, 122) to accurately reconstruct cross-link interference (380) and ultimately cancel the cross-link interference (380) to improve link quality.
