  • Publication number: 20190181969
    Abstract: A technique includes maintaining a signal-to-noise ratio of the transmitted reference signals to be less than a lower signal-to-noise ratio threshold for a first period of time that is a sufficient length of time to allow a correctly operating user device to detect an out-of-sync status and subsequently declare a radio link failure with respect to the connection, increasing, after the maintaining, the signal-to-noise ratio of the reference signals transmitted to the user device from the second signal-to-noise ratio to a third signal-to-noise ratio, wherein the third signal-to-noise ratio is greater than an upper signal-to-noise ratio threshold, after the increasing, sending, by the network device to the user device, an uplink resource grant, and confirming that the network device does not receive an uplink transmission from the user device in response to the uplink resource grant within a second period of time.

  • Patent number: 10200895
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and computer program product where a user equipment, in a wireless communications system, measures downlink radio quality based on available downlink signals. The user equipment compares the measured downlink radio quality with RLM thresholds. Based on that comparison, the user equipment determines its in-sync or out-of-sync status. Prior to the measuring, the user equipment can determine the RLM thresholds based on hypothetical NPDCCH channels; can receive in-sync and out-of-sync thresholds from the base station; can receive an additional offset for in-sync and out-of-sync thresholds under enhanced coverages and can determine the RLM thresholds for normal converge on the hypothetical NPDCCH channels; or can receive an offset between in-sync and out-of-sync thresholds from a base station and determine the RLM out-of-sync threshold based on the hypothetical NPDCCH channels and the RLM in-of-sync threshold based on the out-of-sync threshold and the offset provided by the base station.
