  • Patent number: 10264502
    Abstract: It is provided a method for adapting a parameter being indicative for a trigger signal for starting measurements, by a first base station of a first radio access network of a first type of radio access technology, of a signal quality of signals being received from a second base station of a second radio access network of a second type of radio access technology. The method includes measuring by a user equipment, which is served by the second base station, the signal quality of signals being received from the first base station, reporting a signal being indicative for the measured signal quality from the user equipment to a network entity, and adapting, by the network entity, a parameter based on the measured signal quality, wherein the parameter is indicative for a trigger signal for starting measuring a further signal quality of signals being received from the second base station.

  • Patent number: 9794970
    Abstract: The present invention relates to methods and apparatuses for providing network access, wherein a connection to a core network is established via a wireless access device and a gateway device. Connectivity of the wireless access device is restricted to a pre-defined group of core network address of a pool of gateway devices with multi-node connectivity to the core network, and a single address is selected to establish the connection to a one of the gateway devices. The gateway device is provided with a relay function for mapping a single input address to a plurality of core network addresses based on a location information of the wireless access device and with at least one co-located decentralized core network functionality.

  • Patent number: 9763127
    Abstract: Embodiments described herein relate generally to a user equipment (“UE”) that is to transmit a handover error report to an access node. An access node may use information in the handover error report to adjust configurations for parameters that are used to make handover decisions. A UE may transmit such a handover error report in response to an undesirable handover procedure from a source access node to a target access node, such as a failed or nearly failed or too early handover procedure. The UE may transmit this handover error report to either the source access node or the target access node or another node.

  • Patent number: 9544171
    Abstract: An apparatus (UEA) may generate a zero-tail signal to be transmitted in an LTE/LTE-A cell, by introducing time domain samples with zero power or very low power in specific positions of a time symbol tail. The apparatus (UEA) may transmit the generated zero-tail signal to a base station (eNB), such that a first user terminal (UEA) is located in the cell farther away (e.g. on a cell edge) from the base station (eNB) than a second user terminal (UEB). Thus coexistence of signals sent by user terminals (UEA, UEB) located at different distances from the base station (eNB) within a same receiver window is enabled without inter-symbol interference. The generated zero-tail signal may also be transmitted from the first user terminal (UEA) or from the base station (eNB) in an outdoor system that is detectable by a neighboring indoor system.

  • Publication number: 20160164639
    Abstract: A decoding method for decoding information content in at least one data packet, which is transmitted from a sender to a receiver via a data link. The information is represented by a bit sequence, which is transformed into a transmittable redundancy version. The information is initially transmitted for a first time in a first data packet from the sender to the receiver. The information is represented by a first redundancy version, which is self-decodable. An incorrect receipt is confirmed by sending a confirmation from the receiver to the sender. The information is retransmitted at least a second time in a second data packet from the sender to the receiver upon receipt of the confirmation, wherein, for representation of the information, a second redundancy version is used, the selection of which is performed in dependence on a coding parameter, describing whether the redundancy version is self-decodable or not.

  • Patent number: 9346259
    Abstract: A method for closed-loop or open-loop control of ink feed in lithographic offset printing presses having at least one inking unit, a control unit and an operating element for adjusting the ink feed across a predetermined ink feed control range, includes subdividing the predetermined control range into partial ranges in the control unit. At least one adjustment parameter of the inking unit or the printing press is assigned to each partial range in the control unit. The control unit determines the appropriate partial range as a function of the ink feed selected with the operating element and adjusts the selected ink feed in the inking unit with associated adjustment parameters in the inking unit and/or in the printing press.
