  • Patent number: 10341994
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally discloses an autonomous wireless transmission mechanism. The autonomous wireless transmission mechanism may be configured to support autonomous transmissions by wireless end devices to wireless access nodes in a connectionless manner. In general, an autonomous wireless transmission by a wireless end device may include transmission of a preamble in a preamble transmission zone and autonomous transmission of a payload over one or more resource units of one or more payload transmission zones without requiring establishment of a connection between the wireless end device and the wireless access node. The autonomous wireless transmission mechanism, by obviating the need for a wireless end device to establish a connection with a wireless access node in order to transmit data to the wireless access node, also obviates a need for the wireless end device to operate in a scheduled transmission mode.

  • Patent number: 10117287
    Abstract: Various methods and devices are provided to address the need for improved dual connectivity. For example, a network node (500) in a primary network includes a processing unit (501) and an interface unit (510), which includes a network interface (511) for communication with other network devices. The processing unit is communicatively coupled to the interface unit and configured to receive, from a user equipment (UE) via the interface unit, a secondary Internet Protocol (IP) address for the UE, the secondary IP address being associated with a secondary network of the UE. The processing unit is also configured to initiate via the interface unit the establishment of at least one tunnel to bridge the network node and the UE via the secondary network.

  • Patent number: 10090957
    Abstract: Embodiments are described herein to provide improvements to known network interference cancellation techniques. One general approach involves a first network node attempting (801) to decode a received signal which includes signaling from a first wireless device transmission and at least one interfering transmission. If the first network node is unsuccessful in attempting to decode the received signal, it is determined (802) whether it would be cost effective to obtain decoded signaling from a serving network node of a wireless device that corresponds to the at least one interfering transmission. If (803) it is determined to be cost effective, the decoded signaling that corresponds to the at least one interfering transmission is requested.

  • Publication number: 20180103480
    Abstract: The present disclosure generally discloses an interference mitigation capability. The present disclosure discloses use of dirty paper coding in a wireless communication network in order to mitigate interference in the wireless communication network. The wireless communication network may be a heterogeneous wireless communication network, where heterogeneity may be based on wireless access device technology type, wireless access device transmit power, or the like. For example, the wireless communication network may be a heterogeneous wireless communication network including a first type of wireless access device (e.g., a small cell device, such as a metro cell, microcell, picocell, femtocell, or the like) and a second type of wireless access device (e.g., a large cell device, such as a macro cell), where the first type of wireless access device is configured to use dirty paper coding to mitigate interference from the second type of wireless access device.

  • Patent number: 9755726
    Abstract: Various methods and apparatuses are provided to address the need for improved multi-carrier communication. In one apparatus, a radio access network (RAN) (402) includes multiple network nodes (403, 406) operative to transmit, via multiple carriers (411-412), packet data to a user element (UE) (401) using a protocol stack. The protocol stack includes a radio link control (RLC) layer split into an upper RLC processing layer and multiple lower RLC processing layers. Each lower RLC processing layer is associated with one carrier of the multiple carriers and each lower RLC processing layer supports packet data transmission via its associated carrier. The upper RLC processing layer supports packet data transmission via the multiple carriers.
