  • Patent number: 10938442
    Abstract: A base station for a wireless communications system operating in an unlicensed target band of a wireless medium includes a receiver configured to wirelessly (i) receive non-cooperative carrier data within the target band from a user equipment, and (ii) detect an operation of at least one spread spectrum channel within the target band. The station further includes a transmitter configured to wirelessly send non-cooperative carrier data within the target band to the user equipment, a memory configured to store computer-executable instructions, and a processor configured to (i) execute the computer-executable instructions, (ii) determine, based on the detection operation of the receiver, at least one sequence of the at least one spread spectrum channel, and (iii) perform at least one corrective action to mitigate interference between the transmitter and an operation of the at least one spread spectrum channel based on the determination of the at least one sequence.

  • Publication number: 20200305077
    Abstract: Systems and methods herein provide for the aggregation of a plurality of wireless base stations for access by a Mobile Central Office (MCO) communicating with user equipment (UEs) through a network. In one embodiment, a communication system includes a first plurality of wireless base stations, each being operable to communicate with UEs. The system also includes a base station aggregator operable to aggregate the wireless base stations into a virtual base station, and to interface with the MCO. The base station aggregator is further operable to process a request from the MCO for access to communications provided by the virtual base station, to grant the request, to intermediate on behalf of the MCO, and to exchange communications between the MCO and a UE subscribing to the MCO and operating within the coverage of the virtual base station.

  • Patent number: 6445684
    Abstract: Methods for use in code division multiple access (CDMA) communication systems includes identifying signal strength needs (in terms of Eb/No) of wireless devices in a sector of a base station. Signal strength needs are determined as a function of the rate of movement of the wireless devices within the sector. The methods include dynamically adjusting the signal strength to a given Eb/No level for each of the wireless devices as a function of the needs of the majority of wireless devices in the sector, dynamically adjusting the signal strength to given Eb/No levels for different classes of wireless devices as a function of the needs of each class of wireless devices in the sector, and dynamically adjusting the signal strength to given Eb/No levels for each individual wireless device as a function of the need of each wireless device.

  • Patent number: 6441505
    Abstract: A backup generator located at a remote site provides the advantages of being compact in size but providing backup power over a long period of time. A multi-level cabinet which includes room for a backup generator and a fuel tank is located in close proximity to the electronic devices for which the power will be provided. The fuel tank may be used to hold propane or a similar fuel, and the tank will be included in a stacked structure with the backup generator. The cabinet for the generator includes sufficient structure to protect the electronics of the backup generator from the elements. Connected between the backup generator and a primary power source to the electronic devices, such as a personal communications system (PCS) site, is a sensor which detects when a power failure has occurred. In the event that such a failure has occurred, the backup generator is activated and provides power to the site electronics.
