  • Publication number: 20200309959
    Abstract: The application relates to a wireless mesh communication system (100) that comprises a plurality of radio nodes (102, 104, 106). Each of the plurality of radio nodes is configured to provide a bi-directional radio communication with other radio node (102, 104, 106) of the system and to obtain (213, 216, 224) an assisted GNSS (A-GNSS) assistance data used in a global navigation satellite system (GNSS) positioning. Also, at least one (102, 104) of the radio nodes indicates (230) to other radio nodes (102, 104, 106) of the system that the A-GNSS assistance data is available and transmissible on request, if the at least one of the radio nodes has this A-GNSS assistance data.

  • Patent number: 10764928
    Abstract: Various communication systems may benefit from reliable random access. For example, fifth generation (5G) wireless communication systems may benefit from a coordinated reliable random access technique based on common random access channel resources for a quality of service aware multi-connectivity link. A method can include preparing a random access message at a user equipment. The method can also include transmitting the random access message from the user equipment on a shared resource. The shared resource can include a resource, such as a random access channel, known by a plurality of access nodes or shared by a plurality of access nodes.

  • Publication number: 20200275333
    Abstract: Because the current RRC: ACTIVE SET UPDATE message presently used in soft handover does not contain HS-DSCH related information, which could be utilized for a Serving HS-DSCH cell change, a separate Radio Bearer Control procedure is needed between the UE (10) and the RNC (20) for carrying out the Serving HS-DSCH cell change. Should HS-DSCH related information—applicable to Serving HS-DSCH cell change—be added to the RRC: ACTIVE SET UPDATE message (32), an unnecessary Radio Bearer Control procedure is avoided, and the drawbacks of the current method are overcome.

  • Publication number: 20190199412
    Abstract: Method, apparatus, and computer program product for a user equipment to receive a downlink control information message from an access point in a wireless communications network and to echo a new beam index in the PUCCH feedback resource in response to the message indicating a PUCCH feedback resource and containing a beam change indication or in response to the message indicating a downlink grant containing a beam change indication MAC control element but no CSI-feedback is scheduled for the PUCCH feedback resource. If a scheduling request resource is indicated by the message or the MAC control element, the user equipment is triggered to transmit a scheduling request on that indicated scheduling request resource. If a scheduling request resource is not indicated by the message or the MAC control element, the user equipment is triggered to perform a scheduling request procedure on a periodic scheduling request resource.

  • Patent number: 9054869
    Abstract: The definition and use of an additional timer for the MAC-hs reordering function in a user equipment. The timer counts transmission time intervals and is reset each time that the user equipment receives a data packet. If the timer reaches a set value, indicating a sufficiently long period of inactivity, then the transmission sequence number is reset to zero or another predefined value. A base station can run a similar timer and, after the timer reaches a set value, can consider the user equipment as no longer being active.
