  • Publication number: 20200322814
    Abstract: Adapting wireless network coverage areas according to beam parameters corresponding to predetermined radio cluster models is disclosed. The disclosed subject matter can enable determining cluster models corresponding to historic use of a wireless network, e.g., based on historical KPIs, etc., from UEs, RAN devices, antennas, and other sources. The cluster models can correspond to beam parameters. The cluster model of the cluster models can be selected based on a current KPI value, e.g., a real-time or near real-time wireless network measurement, e.g., from a UE, RAN device, antenna, etc. Beam parameters corresponding to the selected cluster model can be communicated to a RAN device which can generate a corresponding radio beam. In an aspect, this can provide wireless connectivity to clusters of devices in the area of the radio beam, wherein the devices of the clusters can, in some embodiments, share same or similar wireless network demands.

  • Publication number: 20200314719
    Abstract: An intelligent determination of a set of candidate handover-beams for a radio access network (RAN) can be facilitated by a RAN intelligent controller (RIC). The RIC can obtain data associated with user equipment devices and their current state, historical patterns, and a current state of serving network node devices and neighboring network node devices. Based on the obtained data, a handover procedure can be optimized by the user equipment by estimating the signal quality from a source cell and neighboring cells. Additionally, the user equipment can send measurement reports to the network to identify and quantify the quality of reference signals transmitted by the network node devices.

  • Publication number: 20200314750
    Abstract: Deployment of Internet-of-things devices can comprise sensors deployed in remote and hard to reach areas and locations. Due to lack of access to reliable power, these sensors cannot always be connected to a network and also have limited computation power. Consequently, a mechanism can be established to periodically access these sensors and collect data from them. The mechanism can utilize a mobile radio unit device to serve as data collectors. The mobile radio unit device can make use of an adaptive beam scanning to perform sensory data collection via the beam scanning operation. Additionally, the platform can also comprise a radio access network intelligent controller to manage the data collecting radio units by providing specific instructions and data collection methodologies.

  • Patent number: 10743259
    Abstract: Wireless transition timers associated with wireless transition states are adaptively controlled in relation to use of applications by user equipment (UE). A UE can include a transition management component (TMC) that can adaptively control wireless transition timers associated with wireless states based on application type, session content, or other factors. The TMC monitors data flow associated with an application and, for a current or subsequent communication session, controls the length of wireless transition timers and switching between wireless states to improve UE, application, and/or network performance while maintaining QOE for the user. The TMC can access a timer look-up table that maps wireless transition timers to application type, content type, user behavior, or other factors. The TMC also can desirably control maintaining persistence or always-on connections by controlling switching between wireless states using the adapted wireless transition timers.
