  • Publication number: 20220295501
    Abstract: A method of operating a terminal device and a base station in a wireless telecommunications system to communicate with one another using a primary component carrier operating on radio resources within a first frequency band and a secondary component carrier operating on radio resources within a second frequency band. The terminal device makes measurements of radio usage in the second frequency band, e.g. by other devices which are not part of the wireless telecommunications system but which can also use radio resources within the second frequency band. The terminal device transmits an indication of the measurements to the base station, and on the basis if this the base station establishes a configuration setting for the secondary component carrier, for example in terms of frequency resources to use for the secondary component carrier.

  • Patent number: 11419127
    Abstract: A method allocating resources in a mobile telecommunications system including a base station, one or more terminals, and one or more infrastructure nodes configured to communicate via a wireless interface allocated for successive time periods. The method includes: obtaining measurements that relate to a link between a first of the terminals and one of the infrastructure nodes; identifying communications between the first terminal and the one infrastructure node as delay-sensitive communications; identifying, based on the obtained measurements and identification of the communications between the first terminal and the one infrastructure nodes as delay-sensitive communications, resources to allocate for the first terminal to communicate with one or more of the infrastructure nodes, selected from two or more of the time periods; and allocating the identified resources for the first terminal to communicate with the one or more of the infrastructure nodes during the two or more time periods.

  • Patent number: 10868610
    Abstract: A communications device including a transmitter and a receiver configured to transmit and receive signals representing data to and from an infrastructure equipment of a mobile communications network via a first wireless access interface. The communications device transmits signals via a second wireless access interface to a communications apparatus operating as a relay node, and determines an additional delay caused by the transmission of the signals to the communications apparatus acting as the relay node via the second wireless access interface compared with a time taken which would have been taken to transmit the signals to the infrastructure equipment as if transmitted via the first wireless access interface, and transmits an indication from which the infrastructure equipment can derive the determined additional delay for adjusting the transmission or reception of the synchronized response.
