  • Patent number: 11210023
    Abstract: Systems, apparatus, and computer-readable media for managing data storage for vehicle-embedded computer devices (VECDs) are disclosed. Embodiments include a data hierarchy, which classifies data based on the data source, data destination, the intended use of the data or a target application, data processing requirements of the data, and/or delivery time requirements of the data. A VECD may classified obtained data according to the hierarchy and may store the data in different storage devices based on the classification of data. Other embodiments are described and/or claimed.

  • Patent number: 11190989
    Abstract: A Next Generation Node-B (gNB) and methods of communication are generally described herein. The gNB is configurable to operate as a source gNB. The gNB is configured with logical nodes including a gNB central unit (gNB-CU) and a gNB distributed unit (gNB-DU). The gNB-CU comprises a gNB-CU control plane (gNB-CU-CP) for control-plane functionality, and a gNB-CU user plane (gNB-CU-UP) for user-plane functionality. When a handover of a User Equipment (UE) from the source gNB to a target gNB is performed, the gNB transfers, from the gNB-DU to the gNB-CU-UP, a downlink data delivery status (DDDS) message to indicate that the gNB-CU-UP is to stop transfer, to the gNB-DU, of downlink data intended for the UE.

  • Publication number: 20210368556
    Abstract: An apparatus and system for onboarding network behavior based on the type of UE and identification information are described. The identification information, if provided by the UE, is provided either during an initial registration procedure or a configured PDU session establishment procedure and includes one or both of an SO-SNPN and provisioning server identity. The UE, if identification information is provided by an SMF, overwrites the default identification information stored in the UE and performs provisioning server discovery on a provisioning server identity in the identification information. If the UE does not store provisioning server identification, the UE constructs a well-defined FQDN to perform provisioning server discovery.

  • Publication number: 20210360742
    Abstract: Relay service is enabled between a residential gateway and a remote user. For example, a 5G residential gateway (5G-RG) may include a relay user equipment (UE) to enable relay service for a 5G core (5GC)-capable UE behind the 5G-RG to connect to the 5GC. The relay UE of the 5G-RG may provide a trusted/untrusted non-3GPP access network for L2 or L3 transport connection to the 5GC-capable UE.

  • Publication number: 20210345226
    Abstract: In one embodiment, an apparatus of a User Equipment (UE) device includes memory storing non-public network (NPN) configuration information, a radio frequency (RF) interface, and processing circuitry coupled to the memory and the RF interface. The RF interface receives information broadcast by a radio access network (RAN) node of the particular NPN, where the information includes a NPN indicator indicating that the RAN node supports a NPN and NPN service information indicating services supported by the particular NPN. The processing circuitry establishes, in response to detecting the NPN indicator in the information received from the RAN node, a connection to the particular NPN based on the NPN configuration information and the NPN service information received from the RAN node.

  • Patent number: 11076318
    Abstract: One or more techniques of authorizing vehicle-to-everything (V2X) in a wireless network are set forth herein. In one example, during an initial registration procedure or an attach procedure, a UE includes its fifth generation (5G) V2X capability in a Non Access Stratum (NAS) message to a Mobility Management Entity (MME) or an Access and Mobility Management Function (AMF). The MME or the AMF stores this information and determines whether the UE is capable of or authorized to use V2X communication subscription information received from a Home Subscriber Server (HSS) or a Unified Data Management (UDM). If the UE is authorized, the MME or the AMF includes the V2X services authorized in a message from the MME or the AMF to an Evolved Universal Mobile Telecommunications System Terrestrial Radio Access Network (E-UTRAN) or a Next Generation Radio Access Network (NG RAN).

  • Patent number: 10986539
    Abstract: Embodiments of Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communications authentication are described. In some embodiments, a user equipment (UE) configured V2X communication and configured to operate within a fifth-generation system (5GS) and/or a combined 5GS and fourth-generation system (4GS) can encode a V2X capability indication in a request message for transmission to a network entity, such as a Access and Mobility Management Function (AMF). The V2X capability indication can indicate a capability of the UE for V2X communication over a PC5 reference point, and the request message can further include an indication of a Radio Access Technology (RAT). In some embodiments, the AMF can determine whether the UE is authorized to use the V2X communications over the PC5 reference point, and whether the UE is authorized to use the RAT indicated in the request message. Accordingly, the AMF can transmit a V2X services authorization to a next generation radio access network (NG-RAN).

  • Patent number: 10951480
    Abstract: Technology for a virtualized network function manager (VNFM) in a mixed wireless network operable to facilitate instantiation of a virtualized network function (VNF) instance is disclosed. The VNFM can receive a request to instantiate a new VNF instance from a network manager (NM) via a network function virtualization (NFV) orchestrator (NFVO), the request including VNF instantiation information. The VNFM can send a request to a virtualized infrastructure manager (VIM) for allocating virtual resources for the new VNF instance based on the VNF instantiation information. The VNFM can receive an acknowledgement from the VIM after successful allocation of the virtualized resources for the new VNF instance. The VNFM can instantiate the new VNF instance and send an acknowledgement of the new VNF instance to the NFVO, wherein the new VNF instance is operable to ease congestion at an overloaded non-virtualized network element in the mixed wireless network.

  • Publication number: 20200288341
    Abstract: Systems and methods of providing V2X communications are generally described. The multimode UE communicates V2X messages with an eNB. The eNB detects whether the UE is able to receive messages from a nearby DSRC RSU based on measurements received from the UE and reported to the eNB. Based on the measurements, the eNB offloads V2X traffic to the DSRC RSU and triggers the UE to start communicating the V2X services from the DSRC RSU rather than the eNB. The measurements are reported in a BSR or DSRC MAC control element or RRC measurement report. The measurement report includes DSRC presence fields, CCH measurements and SCH measurements for each DSRC RSU that the UE is able to detect.
