  • Publication number: 20220053313
    Abstract: Apparatuses, systems, and methods for SoR list management and PLMN selection based on an SoR list. A UE may receive an SoR container which may include a list of OPLMNs. The UE may store a prior list of OPLMNs stored on a USIM of the UE on a memory of the UE. The UE replace the prior list of OPLMNs stored on the USIM with the list of OPLMNs included in the SoR container. The UE may consider the prior list of OPLMNs as a lower priority list as compared to the list of OPLMNs stored on the USIM. Additionally, in response to determining to move from a current PLMN, the UE may scan for a new PLMN based on the list of OPLMNs stored on the USIM.

  • Publication number: 20210368435
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses are disclosed for requesting and providing service of a network slice deemed essential by a user equipment (UE). The UE transmits a request message to the network indicating that essential services are requested, and identifying the essential network slice. Based on the information in the request message, the serving network communicates with one or more network nodes to determine whether the requested services can be provided. This information is packaged in a response message and transmitted to the UE. If the current network is capable of servicing the requested network slice, then the UE remains with the current network. If not, then the UE initiates a search for an alternative network (PLMN or SNPN) capable of supporting the requested services. A successful search causes the UE to register with the newly-found network, whereas an unsuccessful search causes the UE to re-register with the current network.

  • Publication number: 20210297940
    Abstract: User equipment devices (UEs) and methods are described for performing single network slice selection assistance information (S-NSSAI)-aware public land mobile network (PLMN) selection in a roaming scenario. A mapping list is received that includes a mapping of a plurality of public land mobile networks (PLMNs) to corresponding S-NSSAI values. The mapping list is received from a home PLMN (HPLMN) of the UE over non-3rd generation partnership (non-3GPP) access, from a server, or from a Universal Mobile Telecommunications Service (UMTS) subscriber identity module (USIM) of the UE. An available PLMN is determined that is mapped to a preferred S-NSSAI value of the UE based on the mapping list. A connection is established with the available PLMN.

  • Patent number: 11044786
    Abstract: Apparatuses and computer-readable storage media for handling timers for mobile terminated circuit-switched fallback (MT CSFB) calls. An apparatus for a user equipment (UE) includes processing circuitry operably coupled to a data storage device. The data storage device is configured to store a value of an extended service request for mobile terminated services (EXT-MT) timer. The value of the EXT-MT timer is less than a value of a guard timer of a Visitor Location Register (VLR). The processing circuitry is configured to start the EXT-MT timer and generate an extended service request message to be transmitted to a Mobility Management Entity (MME) responsive to a paging for an MT CSFB call, and attempt to select a radio access technology of a different type of network if the EXT-MT timer expires before the UE successfully performs inter system change and a circuit switched fallback cancellation request was not received from a subscriber.

  • Patent number: 10880797
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to a mobile device, comprising: a receiver configured to receive a radio signal comprising transmissions from a plurality of radio cells; and a processor configured to derive second information from the received radio signal, the second information indicating at least one neighboring radio cell, wherein the processor is configured to initiate a radio cell selection based on the second information if the second information indicates at least one neighboring radio cell configured for the first RAT.

  • Publication number: 20200305032
    Abstract: Systems and methods of enabling access for non-emergency voice calls are described. A UE operates in a network supporting voice services via a multitude of RATs. The UE attempts to access the network via a first RAT offering voice services and data services. If the UE does not receive a response from the network within a first time period, the UE re-attempts the access to the network via the first RAT. If the number of access attempts for which the UE does not receive a response is at least a threshold value, the UE refrains during a second time period from further access attempts via the first RAT for the purpose of receiving data services, and continues to attempt access via the first or second RAT for the purpose of receiving voice services.

  • Patent number: 10271376
    Abstract: Delay in IMS call establishment and other time critical data transfers may be reduced by seeking alternative transmission methods for time critical data, when a transmission cannot be completed or the Radio Access Technology is otherwise unavailable. A Critical Service Manager (“CSM”) receives and evaluates priority information about a given data transfer. By evaluating this priority information, the CSM can identify priority data, or latency intolerant data, such as IMS calls or emergency calls. Where network rejects a connection request and issues a wait timer, the CSM may lower the retransmission count to hasten a permanent transmission failure. Upon a permanent transmission failure, the CSM can determine an alternative protocol for transmission of the priority data, such as transmitting data through circuit switch fallback, via Wi-Fi, or through another legacy RAT.
