  • Publication number: 20190273588
    Abstract: A wireless communication device (alternatively, device, WDEV, etc.) includes a processing circuitry configured to support communications with other WDEV(s) and to generate and process signals for such communications. In some examples, the device includes a communication interface and a processing circuitry, among other possible circuitries, components, elements, etc. to support communications with other WDEV(s) and to generate and process signals for such communications. A WDEV selects a resource unit (RU) from an orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) sub-carrier plan for use in supporting communications with another WDEV. The WDEV transmits a signal to the other WDEV that includes information that specifies the RU that is selected from the OFDMA sub-carrier plan and then supports communications with the other WDEV using the RU that is selected from the OFDMA sub-carrier plan. The OFDMA sub-carrier plan includes multiple OFDMA sub-carrier sub-plans of different sized RUs and null sub-carriers.

  • Patent number: 10225108
    Abstract: A device implementing a channel estimation for multi-channel transmissions system may include at least one processor configured to receive a set of signals over a set of channels, wherein each signal of the set of signals includes one of a set of channel estimation sequences. The set of channel estimation sequences may have been selected based at least in part on a signal quality metric, such as a peak-to-average power ratio, associated with a combination of the set of signals. The at least one processor may be further configured to perform a channel estimation for each channel based at least in part on the channel estimation sequence included in the signal received over each channel. In one or more implementations, the set of channel estimation sequences may be selected to minimize the signal quality metric associated with the combination of the plurality of channels.

  • Patent number: 9825796
    Abstract: A wireless communication device (alternatively, device) includes a processor configured to support communications with other wireless communication device(s) and to generate and process signals for such communications. In some examples, the device includes a communication interface and a processor, among other possible circuitries, components, elements, etc. to support communications with other wireless communication device(s) and to generate and process signals for such communications. Different long training fields (LTFs) are designed using different respective binary sequences. The LTFs are designs based on a number of resource units (RUs) and RU sizes associated with a sub-carriers/tone plan. Each RU allocation specifies a respective one or more RUs of one or more RU sizes for a communication channel. The LTFs are designed such that peak to average power ratio (PAPR) of the LTF increases across the RU allocations as size of the one or more RU sizes increases.

  • Patent number: 9596041
    Abstract: A communication device (e.g., a cable modem (CM)) includes a digital to analog converter (DAC) and a power amplifier (PA) that generate a signal to be transmitting via a communication interface to another communication device (e.g., cable modem termination system (CMTS)). The CM includes diagnostic analyzer that samples the signal based on a fullband sample capture corresponding to a full bandwidth and/or a subset (e.g., narrowband) sample capture to generate a fullband and/or subset signal capture (e.g., of an upstream (US) communication channel between the CM and the CMTS). The diagnostic analyzer can be configured to generate sample captures of the signal based on any desired parameter(s), condition(s), and/or trigger(s). The CM then transmits the signal to the CMTS and the fullband and/or subset signal capture to the CMTS and/or a proactive network maintenance (PNM) communication device to determine at least one characteristic associated with performance of the US communication channel.
