  • Publication number: 20210289527
    Abstract: Examples relate to a method for a mobile communication system. The mobile communication system includes a base station communicating with a plurality of associated mobile stations using a downlink radio frame comprising a plurality of subframes. Further, the method includes generating a master sub-frame of the downlink radio frame by the base station. The master sub-frame includes scheduling information indicating which of the mobile stations are candidates for scheduling in sub-frames other than the master sub-frame of the downlink radio frame, and which of the mobile stations are scheduled by the base station in the master sub-frame. Additionally, the method includes transmitting the master sub-frame to the plurality of associated mobile stations by the base station. Further, the method includes reading the scheduling information of the master sub-frame by at least one mobile station of the plurality of associated mobile stations.

  • Publication number: 20210051604
    Abstract: A method for modifying an electromagnetic field distribution of a node in a telecommunication network, comprising determining the presence of an entity within a region of interest, and regulating transmission power to the region of interest from the node by varying a spatio-temporal transmission profile of the node in response to determining the presence of the entity in the region for a period of time longer than a predetermined threshold value, wherein modifying the electromagnetic field distribution of the node comprises modifying an average electromagnetic field distribution of said node.

  • Patent number: 10117113
    Abstract: Embodiments provide beamforming apparatuses, methods and a computer programs for a base station transceiver and a mobile transceiver. An apparatus (10) operable in a base station transceiver (100) of a mobile communication system comprises a transceiver module (12) comprising interfaces to a plurality (15) of antennas. The transceiver module (12) is operable to subdivide the plurality (15) of antennas in a plurality of subgroups using the interfaces, and to form a first beam pattern (16) using one or more antennas of a subgroup. The apparatus (10) further comprises a control module (14), which is operable to transmit a synchronization signal using the transceiver module (12) and the first beam pattern (16). The control module (14) is further operable to receive a response signal after transmission of the synchronization signal from a mobile transceiver (200) using the transceiver module (12), to determine a second beam pattern (18) based on the response signal from the mobile transceiver (200).

  • Patent number: 9509480
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method (MET-T) for transmitting channel feedback information in a wireless communication system. The method (MET-T) contains the steps of determining (M1/5) a first reception quality value (CQI 1) for a first radio channel from a first transmission point (2a) of the radio communication system to an apparatus (4), determining (M1/7) based on the first reception quality value (CQI 1) a preferred use of the first radio channel (6a), and transmitting (M1/8) towards the first transmission point (2a) the first reception quality value (CQI 1) and the first reception quality value (CQI 1) simultaneously indicates the preferred use. The invention further relates to an apparatus for transmitting channel feedback information in the wireless communication system and to a method (MET-R) and apparatus (8) for receiving the channel feedback information in the wireless communication system.
