  • Patent number: 10986527
    Abstract: An access node of a radio access network (RAN) that communicates over a radio interface with a wireless terminal. The access node comprises processor circuitry, transmitting circuitry, and receiving circuitry. The processor circuitry is configured to generate an indication of access node capability to support the wireless terminal when the wireless terminal operates in a restricted mode. The transmitting circuitry is configured to transmit the indication to the wireless terminal. The receiving circuitry is configured to receive an indication from the wireless terminal that the wireless terminal is in the restricted mode. The processor circuitry is further configured to make a determination, upon receipt of the indication from the wireless terminal, that a connection with the wireless terminal can be maintained in the restricted mode and to generate a responsive message based on the determination.

  • Patent number: 10880871
    Abstract: A 5G NR user equipment (UE) and 5G NR based station (gNB) for transmitting and receiving NR User Plane data traffic and NR Control Plane data are described. Both, the UE and gNB include processor memory in electronic communication with the processor. Instructions stored in the memory are executable to process received downlink (DL) packets according to receive Medium Access Control (MAC) Protocol and/or Received Radio Link Control (RLC) Protocol. The instructions are also executable to process uplink (UL) packets for transmission according to transmit MAC and/or RLC protocols. The Transmit MAC frame structure and/or RLC frame structure are/is different in formats than those from Receive MAC and/or RLC frame structure at each end (i.e., at the UE and/or at the gNB). In the Up-link (UL), the MAC CE is transmitted at the end of the frame while for the Down-link (DL) the MAC CE is transmitted at beginning of the frame.

  • Patent number: 10863402
    Abstract: Method and apparatus for providing a solution to the handoff problem includes negotiation of new media codes (coders/decoders) for utilization in cases where the two devices involved in the handoff are incompatible. Although mobile IP (MIP) is presently utilized to perform handoff procedures, this technique lacks a trigger mechanism to initiate handoff between two different devices which communicate with two different networks or one common network. In addition, MIP does not address the issue of compatibilities between media types, codes and supported bit rate. The handoff utilizes a session protocol (SIP) message for handoff.

  • Patent number: 10856186
    Abstract: Apparatus and method by which Internet Protocol (IP) traffic can be transferred (i.e. handoff) between two different terminals operating according to two different technology standards in two different systems with two different IP addresses. For example, a session handoff can be made between a terminal in Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) a terminal in a 3GPP UMTS or between a terminal in CDMA2000 and a terminal in a 3GPP UMTS. These terminals can be either physically separate entities or logical entities that are encapsulated within a common enclosure.

    Abstract: A user equipment (UE) is described. Receiving circuitry is configured to receive a radio resource control (RRC) message including information used for configuring more than one periodicities, each of the more than one periodicities corresponding to each of more than one uplink bandwidth parts (UL BWPs). The receiving circuitry is also configured to receive on a physical downlink control channel (PDCCH), a downlink control information format used for scheduling of a physical uplink shared channel (PUSCH), the downlink control information format being used for activating one UL BWP among the more than one UL BWPs. Transmitting circuitry is configured to perform, based on a periodicity among the more than one periodicities, an uplink transmission on the PUSCH in the activated one UL BWP. The periodicity among the more than one periodicities is determined based on the activated one UL BWP in which the uplink transmission is performed on the PUSCH.

  • Patent number: 10419964
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus are disclosed for Machine to Machine (M2M) communication registration. The methods provide single and periodic registration and may be device or network based. The devices in the system may be divided into groups. A single device member may perform the basic access steps for the group. Other devices may receive related access information on a control channel and use the information to access the system. The devices may send data, get updates, and then go to sleep. Internet addresses may be released or maintained. During a control cycle, the devices may wake up and listen to the control channel for any paging messages. Individual devices or the entire group may access the system. During a reporting cycle, all the devices may wake up and access the system to connect to the M2M system to upload data.
