  • Patent number: 10136330
    Abstract: Described features are directed to staggered frequency channel changing for cells of spectrum sharing networks. In some examples users communicating on one or more frequency channels of a spectrum sharing network may receive an indication that those channels are to be vacated, for example that the frequency channels are not to be transmitted on, or otherwise used for communications. Cells of the spectrum sharing network may receive the indication and perform staggered (e.g., sequential or randomly-timed) channel changes. The staggered channel changes may facilitate handover of user devices of the spectrum sharing network by, for example, reducing a number of cells that are simultaneously undergoing a channel change procedure. Thus, staggered frequency channel changing may reduce user service interruptions and radio link failures in a spectrum sharing network.

  • Patent number: 10045322
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses are provided for causing active hand-in of a device from a macrocell base station to a femto node, which can be an inter-frequency hand-in. The femto node can broadcast a beacon over an operating frequency of the macrocell base station, and the macrocell base station, and/or one or more network components, can identify the femto node based on one or more parameters reported by the device from receiving the beacon. The beacon can be transmitted at varying powers to ensure active hand-in triggering, mitigate interference and/or can be powered on and off for such purposes. In addition, a macrocell base station can regulate compressed mode periods during which a device can measure the femto node based on receiving information regarding device proximity to the femto node, or a device can generate proximity indication messages base on measuring the beacon signals, etc.

The method includes adjusting a transmission power to trigger a hand-in of the mobile entity in response to determining the uplink interference is above the threshold. The method includes handing-in the mobile entity from a first cell in response to adjusting the transmission power. The method includes redirecting the mobile entity to a second cell different from the first cell.

  • Publication number: 20180103446
    Abstract: A method for reducing frequent idle handoffs of a wireless communication device is described. A registration request is received by a base station or a femto access point from the wireless communication device. The number of registration requests received from the wireless communication device are counted while the registration timer is running. It is determined that frequent handoffs are happening when the number of registration requests received is greater than a registration threshold. A transmit power of a femto access point is adjusted if the number of registration requests received indicates that frequent handoffs are happening.

  • Patent number: 9924436
    Abstract: Aspects describe communications environments in which femtocell capability is provided to devices within the communications network. A non-femto enabled device and/or a femto enabled device can communicate with a femto enabled device in the same geographical area for femto-enabled peer-to-peer communication. Two non-femto enabled devices can be provided femto functionality through utilization of a femto enabled device, which operates as a hub between the two devices. Other aspects relate to enhanced position determination, adaptive coverage enhancement, local mobile networks, open access femtocells without a backhaul, and local broadcast of media though utilization of femto enabled devices.

  • Patent number: 9913207
    Abstract: Wireless communication in a heterogeneous network may be facilitated by establishing connections with femto nodes based on page notifications from macro nodes to user equipment (UE). A UE in idle mode may monitor paging resources provided by a macro node, discover presence of a femto node based on signals received from the femto node, and establish a communicative connection with the femto node based on a page notification received from the macro node over the paging resources.

  • Patent number: 9913189
    Abstract: A multi-mode access point supports different radio access technologies (e.g., Wi-Fi and cellular) for serving multi-mode access terminals. To provide improved service for such an access terminal, the access point may redirect the access terminal from a first type of radio access technology to a second type of radio access technology under certain circumstances. A decision to invoke such a redirection may be based on, for example, at least one of: traffic conditions on the first type of radio access technology, traffic conditions on the second type of radio access technology, and whether a backhaul for the access point is currently a bottleneck for access point communication.

  • Publication number: 20180014304
    Abstract: Described herein are aspects related to assigning primary channels in wireless communications. An amount of available bandwidth within a radio frequency band can be determined for shared access by a plurality of operators, where each operator operates a radio access network having one of a plurality of radio communication compatibility types, and where each radio communication compatibility type defines a set of one or more compatible radio access technologies. The amount of available bandwidth can be allocated into radio compatibility type-specific bandwidth partitions for each radio communication compatibility type based on a number of the plurality of radio communication compatibility types and a number of the plurality of operators corresponding to each radio communication compatibility type. A primary channel can be assigned within at least one of the radio compatibility type-specific bandwidth partitions to at least one operator of the number of the plurality of operators.

  • Patent number: 9854459
    Abstract: Techniques for supporting communication by base stations are disclosed. In an aspect of the present disclosure, for network-based alarming, a base station may notify a designated user equipment (UE) whenever certain trigger events occurred at the base station. The base station may send notification messages for detected trigger events to the UE for timely intervention. In another aspect of the present disclosure, for network-based reconfiguration, a base station for a small cell may be reconfigured by a network server based on performance metrics for base stations in a wireless system. The reconfiguration may improve the performance of the base station and possibly other base stations in the wireless system.

  • Patent number: 9804891
    Abstract: A networking device continuously and simultaneously receives multiple sign and verify requests, without a priori knowledge of their quantity, type, sequence, length, input data or frequency. The networking device performs the corresponding signature operations and verification operations according to a rule based configuration. Each received sign and verify request is broken into multiple tasks, which are placed into a task pool with priorities, and disassociated from their originating requests and from other tasks. Multiple execution agents (each one a separate general purpose compute unit with its own memory space) repeatedly and simultaneously processes next available tasks from the pool based on priority. Asynchronous worker routines in the agents can pre-calculate certain values for higher level task processing. The output from completed tasks is placed into a repository, and the results in the repository are processed to fulfill the multiple received requests at network line speed.

  • Patent number: RE47110
    Abstract: Systems and methodologies are described that facilitate reporting an uplink power headroom (UPH) during an E-DCH transmission in a CELL_FACH state. For a E-DCH transmission, a reduced measurement period can be utilized in order to report a UPH measurement. In particular, the reduced measurement period can be less than 100 milliseconds. The UPH measurement can be communicated based upon receipt of AICH/E-AICH and transmission of DPCCH for a configurable number of radio frames. The UPH measurement can be based upon the transmitted power prior to actual data transmission. Additionally, the UPH measurement can be included within scheduling information portion of a MAC header.
