  • Patent number: 10375688
    Abstract: It is provided a wireless communication system comprising base stations that transmit data to a terminal with cooperation by the base stations. The terminal communicates with the base stations. The terminal periodically transmits, to one of the base stations, information necessary for data transmission from a single base station out of the base stations. Each of the base stations determines whether the terminal needs data transmission through a cooperation among the base stations, and transmits a cooperation information transmission instruction to the terminal, which includes information necessary to execute the data transmission in order to cooperate among the base stations in the case where it is determined that the terminal needs the data transmission through the cooperation among the base stations. The terminal transmits the cooperation information to the base stations in a case of receiving the cooperation information transmission instruction.

  • Patent number: 8630313
    Abstract: Ameliorate deterioration in quality of communication caused by intercell interference with respect to a multicarrier communications protocol, such as OFDM. A method of positioning an error correction-coded signal is changed with a data symbol that is transmitted simultaneously with a pilot signal and a data symbol that is not simultaneous with the pilot symbol. Else, a modulation protocol is changed with a data symbol that is transmitted simultaneously with a pilot signal and a data symbol that is not simultaneous with the pilot symbol. It would further be permissible to lower either a signal amplitude or a power level of a data symbol that is transmitted simultaneously with a pilot signal.

  • Patent number: 8477682
    Abstract: Conventionally, different HARQ processes 801 and 802 (subframes T1 and T2) transmit data packets B and D, respectively. One data packet corresponds to one process and is retransmitted as necessary one by one on a process basis, degrading the usage efficiency of frequency and time resources. To solve this problem, downlink data packets B and D, when needed to be retransmitted, are spatially multiplexed in the different HARQ processes 801 and 802. The data packets are simultaneously retransmitted to the same terminal as process 805 (subframe T3).

  • Publication number: 20120213148
    Abstract: In wireless communication systems into which a relay device has been introduced, although terminal reception quality increases, data transmission by relay devices with low contribution causes interference in other data transmission, which invites a decrease in reception quality of electromagnetic waves received by terminals. As a way to resolve the abovementioned issue, as one embodiment of the present disclosures, a wireless relay station is configured so as to receive a plurality of data addressed for wireless terminals from a wireless base station, and to transmit data that are selected from the aforementioned received plurality of data and that are addressed to the aforementioned wireless terminals which are the destinations of transmission. As a result, interference towards other data transmission and reception caused by data transmission of a relay device can be suppressed, and the reception quality of electromagnetic waves received by the terminal can be increased.
