  • Patent number: 9379850
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for controlling retransmissions in multipoint reception is disclosed. In the method it is determined that additional information is needed for decoding of at least one received information block. A procedure is selected for obtaining the additional information from a plurality of options to proceed based on information about predicted result of at least one of the options. In accordance with an aspect an indication of one of a positive acknowledgement of the information block, a negative acknowledgement of the information block and suspension of retransmission of the information block is generated and communicated on a retransmission control channel.

  • Patent number: 9306714
    Abstract: There is provided a method for configuring a communication channel between a base station and a user equipment within a cellular network system. The cellular network system includes at least one cooperation area. The base station is assigned to the at least one cooperation area, and the user equipment is served by the base station. The method includes applying, by the base station, a vertical sectorization and thereby creating the at least one cooperation area, determining, by the base station, the location of the user equipment in relation to the at least one cooperation area, and configuring, by the base station, the communication channel between the base station and the user equipment by using coordinated multipoint processing, if the determined location of the user equipment corresponds to a predetermined location.

  • Patent number: 9277531
    Abstract: A method includes receiving at a user equipment from a network access node a temporary identifier associated with an interference cancellation group to which the user equipment is assigned; decoding a control channel using the temporary identifier to determine a downlink resource allocation for the user equipment and to determine a downlink resource allocation for at least one other user equipment assigned to the same interference cancellation group; and receiving a downlink signal in accordance with the determined downlink resource allocation for the user equipment while canceling interference from the downlink signal that is associated with the at least one other user equipment by using the determined downlink resource allocation for the at least one other user equipment. Apparatus for performing the method are also disclosed.

  • Patent number: 8954078
    Abstract: A method, apparatus, and computer program for continuing transmission during handover are presented. A communication connection is established between a source base station and a mobile relay base station comprising a distributed antenna system (DAS). The DAS includes multiple spatially distributed antenna units (DAUs), wherein at least part of the DAUs are used for forming a cluster of sub-cells within a coverage area of the mobile relay base station and at least part of the DAUs are used for communicating with a fixed cellular network infrastructure over multiple backhaul links. A first backhaul link is then handed over from the source base station to a target base station. After the handover, data transfer between the source base station and at least one backhaul link still linked to the source base station is continued, and remaining backhaul link(s) are released from the source base station according to a determined criterion.
