  • Publication number: 20190254103
    Abstract: A wireless communication device (10) controls changing of a connection of the wireless communication device (10) to an access node (100) of the wire-less communication network between: a relay based connection to the access node (100), and either a direct connection to the access node (100) or another relay based connection to the access node (100). The relay based connection extends via a device-to-device communication link (30) between the wireless communication device (10) and a first further wireless communication device (40). The other relay based connection extends via another device-to-device communication link (30?) between the wireless communication device (10) and a second further wireless communication device (40?). Further, the wireless communication (10) sends an indication to the access node (100).

  • Publication number: 20190069307
    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: 10158972
    Abstract: A method in a location service client node includes maintaining a database containing a listing of beacon radio node identifiers with their geographic locations. A received location request contains an identifier for a UE and an identifier for a beacon radio node. A geographic location of the UE is determined from the database using the geographic location of the identifier for the beacon radio nodes. A message is sent to a public safety system containing the identifier for the UE and the geographic location. Subsequent to sending the message to the public safety system, a received movement notification message contains the identifier for the beacon radio node and data indicating that the beacon radio node has been moved. Data in the database is set to prevent the geographic location of the beacon radio node from being subsequently used to determine the geographic location of a UE.

  • Patent number: 10129897
    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, and transmits an indication of the measurements to the base station. The base station then establishes a configuration setting for the secondary component carrier. The configuration setting is associated with a validity period during which the base station communicates data to the terminal device using the primary component carrier and the secondary component carrier operating in accordance with its configuration setting.
