    Abstract: Systems, methods, apparatuses, and computer program products for positioning support are provided. One method may include receiving, by a UE configured with power saving feature(s), positioning performance requirements for a positioning session. The method may also include estimating an impact of one or more power saving or reduced capability features on positioning measurements associated with the positioning session and, based on the accuracy and latency requirements and the estimated impact, determining the power saving or reduced capability features that the UE can implement while still achieving the accuracy and latency requirements for the positioning session. The method may then include signaling, to a network node, information on the determined power saving or reduced capability features that the UE can implement while still achieving the required accuracy and latency requirements for the positioning session.

  • Patent number: 11924886
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to methods, devices and computer readable storage medium for transport block size (TBS) configuration. In example embodiments, a terminal device transmits a random access preamble to a network device. The terminal device receives a random access response from the network device. The random access response includes a resource allocated for a reference TBS. Based on the reference TBS, the terminal device determines a TBS for transmitting data to the network device. Then, the terminal device transmits the data to the network device by using the determined TBS and the allocated resource. This TBS configuration is more flexible.

  • Publication number: 20230412290
    Abstract: A UE connected to a BS in a wireless network receives parameter(s) to be used to identify the UE for measurement modification and determines an estimate of a level of signal variation for signals received at the UE. The UE identifies, using at least the parameter(s) the UE for measurement modification based at least on the estimate of the level of signal variation. The UE modifies a time between measurements for RRM from a current time to a different time in response to the UE being identified for measurement modification. A BS determines the parameter(s) to be used by the UE in order to identify the UE for measurement modification and signals the parameter(s) to the UE. The parameter(s) may also be used for stationarity detection for the UE.

  • Publication number: 20230379088
    Abstract: A UE may be enabled to provide low latency, high reliability, and power savings. If a message of the UE is delay-sensitive, the UE may indicate to a gNB that fast retransmission scheduling may be necessary if a packet is not received over PUSCH. After transmitting the packet, the UE may monitor PDCCH for an indication that retransmission is required. This monitoring may occur sooner than a PDCCH monitoring period would otherwise allow. If the UE receives a DCI indicating that retransmission is required, the UE may retransmit the packet as well as an indication for a fast transmission request. This process may continue until an acknowledgement of the received packet is received in DL or no DCI indicating retransmission is received in DL. Accordingly, the gNB may quickly receive the retransmitted packet while the UE saves power by only performing additional monitoring when requested.
