  • Publication number: 20190313287
    Abstract: When a network node providing wireless access and serving plurality of user devices receives information on channel conditions from one or more user devices, the network node determines available resources for traffic to and from the one or more user devices; and, when there is higher priority traffic, the network node uses reliability increasing resource allocation for the higher priority traffic at least as long as there are enough resources available.

  • Patent number: 10387664
    Abstract: An approach is provided for providing security mechanism for proximity-based interactions among devices. A first device (e.g., a memory tag) may determine a request for interaction between the first device and a second device (e.g., a mobile phone), wherein at least the first device is associated with at least one first antenna and at least one second antenna. The first device may determine a first signal received by the at least one first antenna and a second signal received by the at least one second antenna. Further, the first device may determine one or more differences in one or more characteristics of the first signal and the second signal. Furthermore, the first device may process or facilitate a processing of the one or more differences to determine whether to allow the interaction.

  • Patent number: 10148747
    Abstract: For a communication between two UEs that passes through a network node, a total number of transmission attempts for a same set of data is divided between first and second data transmission attempt(s). The first data transmission attempt(s) are allowed to be performed from a first one of the two UEs toward the network node. The second data transmission attempt(s) are allowed to be performed from the network node or from a second network node toward a second one of the two UEs. Performance of the first and second data transmission attempt(s) is coordinated based on the division to cause communication of the set of data from the first UE to the second UE. A single network node may perform the first and second data transmission attempts, or a first network node performs the first data transmission attempts while a second network node performs the second data transmission attempts.

  • Publication number: 20180324852
    Abstract: A user equipment (UE) selects first and second radio resources from respective first and second pools of radio resources. In one example these are primarily allocated for contention-free and scheduling-based channel access, respectively. Content to duplicate in parallel communications is selected based at least on a characteristic of uplink data waiting to be sent (such as size) and/or on the selected first and second radio resources (such as timing difference between them). The UE transmits the selected content on each of the selected first and second radio resources. In the examples the content to duplicate was selected from among the uplink data to send and a scheduling request message. In various embodiments one of these transmissions indicates it's a duplicate, and the duplicated scheduling request message is transmitted on the first resource with the uplink data. These teachings are particularly useful for URLLC data.
