  • Patent number: 10985958
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and instrumentalities are disclosed for separating a channel and data without the use of reference signals. For example, a wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) may determine a first orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) symbol based on a data vector. The WTRU may determine a second OFDM symbol by applying a circular time-inverse operation and a conjugate operation to the first OFDM symbol. The WTRU may send the first OFDM symbol and the second OFDM symbol. The first and the second OFDM symbols may be sent to consecutively. Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT)-spread and nonlinear preprocessing (exponential transformation at the transmitter) may be used and/or peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) may be reduced via randomizer block at the receiver.

  • Publication number: 20210037511
    Abstract: Transmit and/or receive beamforming may be applied to the control channel transmission/reception, e.g., in mmW access link system design. Techniques to identify candidate control channel beams and/or their location in the subframe structure may provide for efficient WTRU operation. A framework for beam formed control channel design may support varying capabilities of mBs and/or WTRUs, and/or may support time and/or spatial domain multiplexing of control channel beams. For a multi-beam system, modifications to reference signal design may discover, identify, measure, and/or decode a control channel beam. Techniques may mitigate inter-beam interference. WTRU monitoring may consider beam search space, perhaps in addition to time and/or frequency search space. Enhancements to downlink control channel may support scheduling narrow data beams. Scheduling techniques may achieve high resource utilization, e.g., perhaps when large bandwidths are available and/or WTRUs may be spatially distributed.

  • Publication number: 20200396698
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and instrumentalities are disclosed for non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA), frequency hopping, and power control. NOMA may be applied to asynchronous and/or grant-free transmissions. Transmissions from multiple WTRUs may be performed using the same resources, and may comprise information for correctly identifying and decoding the transmissions. The transmissions may comprise a built-in deterministic sequence to support timing acquisition at a receiver. The transmissions may be distinguished based on respective transmit power used for the transmissions. Such transmit power may be dynamically controlled by applying a randomly selected power offset. The power control may be performed autonomously by a WTRU.

  • Publication number: 20200260420
    Abstract: A wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) may, in a first codeword, map a first set of bits to a higher order modulation scheme and a second set of bits to a lower order scheme. The WTRU may then transmit the first set of bits in the first codeword at a first allocated power and the second set of bits in the first codeword at a second allocated power. In an example, the second allocated power may be great than the first allocated power. Further, the WTRU may determine the second allocated power based on power boosting the first allocated power. In another example, the WTRU may receive an assignment message from a base station including instructions regarding partition determination and resource assignment. The WTRU may then determine at least two partitions of bandwidth based on the assignment message. Further, each partition may have differing symbol periods, differing subcarrier spacing or both.

  • Publication number: 20200260388
    Abstract: A wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) is configured to receive a WTRU-specific configuration of WTRU-specific sounding reference signal (SRS) subframes for performing SRS transmissions. The WTRU is configured to receive a trigger in a subframe to transmit a first SRS. The WTRU is configured to select a first subframe. The WTRU is configured to determine that a maximum power would be exceeded in a symbol in the selected first subframe. The WTRU is configured to, on a condition that transmission of at least one other SRS would at least partially overlap in the symbol in the selected first subframe, scale transmission powers of the first SRS and the at least one other SRS equally to comply with the maximum power. The WTRU is configured to transmit, in accordance with the scaled transmission powers, the first SRS in the selected subframe and the at least one other SRS.

  • Patent number: 10638473
    Abstract: A wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU), using mixed numerologies, may, in a first codeword, map a first set of bits to a higher order modulation scheme and a second set of bits to a lower order scheme, and transmit the first codeword. The WTRU may determine that data of the first codeword is to be re-transmitted on a second codeword, containing the same number of bits as the first codeword. In the second codeword, the WTRU may map a first set of bits to the lower order scheme and a second set of bits to the higher order scheme. The first set of bits of the second codeword may contain the same number of bits as the second set of bits of the first codeword and may contain at least a subset of data in the first set of bits of the first codeword. The WTRU may transmit the second codeword.

    Abstract: Methods and systems for operation in a wireless network are provided, the methods including receiving modulated data symbols and zeros in a frequency-domain, and mapping in the frequency-domain the modulated data symbols and zeros in an interleaved manner to sub-carriers within a resource allocation. The methods and systems further include generating a time-domain data signal based on the mapped sub-carriers, and generating a time domain cancellation signal by sign inverting and repeating a predetermined number of time-domain samples at a tail portion of the data signal. The methods and systems further include combining the time-domain data signal and the time domain cancellation signal to generate an exact zero tail data signal such that the exact zero tail data signal has a zero tail length equal to the predetermined number of time-domain samples, and transmitting the exact zero tail data signal.

  • Publication number: 20200077437
    Abstract: A wireless transmit receive unit (WTRU) may receive a set of candidate resources, which may be used for transmission. The WTRU may periodically perform CCA on a channel (e.g., before transmitting on the channel). When the channel is determined to be free, the WTRU may determine a resource for transmission from the candidate resources. The resource may be determined based on the time remaining in the time period. For example, when the time remaining in the time period is shorter, the WTRU may determine to transmit on a resource that comprises more frequency resources. The WTRU may determine a Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) scheme based on the number of frequency resources. The WTRU may send a transmission on the resource, which may include a demodulation reference signal (DM-RS). The DM-RS may indicate the resource used from transmission to a receiver of the transmission.

  • Patent number: 10568048
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for uplink sounding reference signals (SRS) transmissions are disclosed. A WTRU-specific configuration of WTRU-specific SRS subframes for performing SRS transmissions is received. A trigger is received in a subframe from a base station to transmit a first SRS. A first subframe is selected after the subframe in which the trigger is received which is both a WTRU-specific subframe and at least four subframes after the subframe in which the trigger is received. A determination if a maximum power is exceeded in a symbol in the selected first subframe is made. On a condition that the maximum power is not exceeded in the symbol in the selected first subframe, the first SRS is transmitted in the selected first subframe.

  • Patent number: 10536312
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and instrumentalities are disclosed for generating, transmitting, and/or receiving a hybrid spread waveform. The hybrid spread waveform may include a data portion and a hybrid guard interval (HGI) portion. The HGI portion may include a fixed prefix portion or a fixed suffix portion, and an adaptive low power tail (LPT) portion. The fixed prefix portion or the fixed suffix portion is a low power cyclic prefix (LPCP). The LPCP may be generated at least based on at least the channel delay spread and a power regrowth length. The adaptive LPT portion may be generated using a zero tail (ZT). The LPT is generated by inserting zeros at IFFT or DFT processing stage. A part of the adaptive LPT portion is used to carry data or control information. A waveform may be switched between a hybrid spread waveform and a fixed-CP waveform, e.g., via control signaling.
