    Abstract: Example embodiments of the present disclosure relate to devices, methods, apparatuses and computer readable storage media of extended bandwidth allocation. In example embodiments, a first device receives, from a second device, an indication of a reference bandwidth. The first device receives, from the second device, an indication of a bandwidth extended from the reference bandwidth and receives, from the second device, an indication of at least one frequency offset of a first set of narrowbands with respect to a second set of narrowbands associated with the reference bandwidth. Then, the first device determines, based on the reference bandwidth, the extended bandwidth and the at least one frequency offset, the first set of narrowbands for communication with the second device.

  • Patent number: 11540223
    Abstract: According to an aspect, there is provided an apparatus for controlling a terminal device. The apparatus monitors a current charge level of a rechargeable energy storage device of the terminal device and a current energy harvesting state of an energy harvesting device of the terminal device. When the current energy harvesting state corresponds to an energy harvesting state indicative of no energy being harvested, the apparatus causes the terminal device to operate in one of a first, second and third operating modes depending on a value of the current charge level relative to first and second thresholds. The first, second and third operating modes and the first and second thresholds are defined so that the uplink transmission functionality of the terminal device is disabled when the current charge level drops below the first threshold and the downlink transmission functionality of the terminal device is disabled when the current charge level drops below both thresholds.

  • Publication number: 20220400502
    Abstract: A method for allocating resources in a wireless network by making use of a resource pool and a resource selection policy. A user equipment is configured by a base station to use a pool of resources and a resource selection policy to use to select one or more resources from the pool of resources. The information from the user equipment in the selected resources is provided to the base station. The resource selection policy may include a random choice of resource blocks. The resource selection policies may be defined prior to the configuring, and they may be mapped to quality of service requirements. The base station may determine the resource selection policy from the defined resource selection policies. The method may be used for a policy-based resource pool allocation for low-latency HOT and other applications.

  • Patent number: 11502892
    Abstract: Techniques of defining a transmission scheme for NB-IoT data include determining the TBS based on 16-quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) analysis but use quadrature phase-shift keying (QPSK) for modulation. For example, a base station (eNB) may determine that a UE is configured to receive or transmit data with 16-QAM modulation via capability signalling from the UE. Upon performing this determination, the eNB transmits configuration data to the UE, e.g., via DCI, configuring the UE to receive data over a narrowband physical downlink shared channel (NPDSCH) using 16-QAM modulation. Part of the configuration data indicates whether the UE is to support 16-QAM modulation with or without repetition via radio resource control (RRC) parameter modulation-restriction-Repetitions. Depending upon this indication, the UE may use quadrature phase-shift keying (QPSK) rather than 16-QAM despite selecting or being assigned a TBS based on 16-QAM modulation.
