  • Patent number: 11522666
    Abstract: Processes and systems for managing preconfigured resources, in particular wireless transmission resources. The disclosure particularly addresses the management of preconfigured resources in relation to Time Sensitive Network (TSN) data transmission. In addition to allocating periodic preconfigured resources, an allowed transmission window (ATW) is defined. The ATW defines which occurrences of the preconfigured resources may be utilised for transmission, in particular which uplink transmission resources may be utilised by a UE. The ATW may be aligned with the expected time of arrival of TSN data (typically the ingress time window) such that the TSN data can be promptly transmitted. The occurrences which occur outside of the ATW are not to be used for transmission and hence may be re-allocated by the base station for other uses.

  • Patent number: 11412540
    Abstract: Methods and systems for managing prioritisation and conflicts in a cellular communication network are provided. Mapping restrictions between logical channels and uplink grants are utilised. In a specific example there is disclosed a method of reducing collisions of uplink (UL) data transmissions from a UE of a wireless communication network to a base station of the wireless communication network, comprising the steps of generating an index for each of a plurality of configured UL grant configurations, modifying a logical channel mapping restrictions to include one or more of the configured UL grant configuration indexes, using the one or more configured UL grant configuration indexes to map the logical channel associated with the modified logical channel mapping restrictions parameter to one or more of the configured UL grant configurations, and using the one or more configured UL grant configurations for one or more of the UL data transmissions from the UE.

  • Patent number: 11212874
    Abstract: A method for enabling a wireless communication device to operate in a radio access network as a network relay device to a remote device, using a short range communication channel there between, wherein the communication device receives a control indication signal from the remote device as an indication of future data between the communication device and the remote device via the short range communication channel which forms part of a sidelink communication between the relay device and the remote device; wherein the relay device decodes the control indication signal from the remote device to extract a time allocation for future data.

  • Publication number: 20210377784
    Abstract: A method of data flow control in an IAB network at the Adapt layer is provided. The method comprises the steps of, for each UE of a plurality of UEs: in a downlink (DL) context, transferring a polling request, the polling request being configured to facilitate requesting PDCP status information; or in an uplink (UL) context, transferring PDCP status information; the PDCP status information including sequence data indicative of: a highest in-sequence PDCP SN or PDCP COUNT of PDCP PDUs successfully delivered or transmitted to the UE, or a first missing PDCP SN or PDCP COUNT based on PDCP PDUs successfully delivered or transmitted to the UE. An IAB network configured to perform the method of data flow control is also provided.

  • Publication number: 20200314886
    Abstract: There is provided a method of building a Hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) process set. The method comprises adding each new sequence of HARQ processes to a group of all the HARQ process sequences, and iterating the adding step Ji times for each possible number of Transport Blocks to be transmitted. Each HARQ process sequence may be correlated to a bit sequence which may transmitted in a DCI message to request re-transmission of certain TBs corresponding to the sequence numbers.
