  • Patent number: 10142951
    Abstract: An LAA-LTE wireless device obtains data to be transmitted in subframes over a shared spectrum. The wireless device transmits a reservation message over the shared spectrum. The reservation message indicates that an initial synchronization message will be retransmitted a specified number of times at specified intervals, such as with a predetermined number of subframes between each retransmitted synchronization message. The wireless device transmits the initial synchronization message over the shared spectrum.

  • Patent number: 9894535
    Abstract: A wireless device accesses a shared spectrum equitably in a self-organizing manner by determining success indices and adjusting courtesy parameters. The wireless device transmits wireless transmissions in a frame subframe structure over a shared spectrum, each of the subframes bounded by subframe boundaries at predetermined time intervals. The success index represents a measure of success in transmitting wireless transmissions in the shared spectrum. The wireless device performs a clear channel assessment to determine whether the shared spectrum is available at the end of the clear channel assessment time interval. The wireless device determines a gap interval between the end of the clear channel assessment time interval and the next subframe boundary and transmits the success index during the gap interval.

  • Patent number: 8737222
    Abstract: A method of determining a bias parameter for a heterogeneous network including a small cell, a macro cell, and one or more user equipment (UEs), the small cell being underlaid with respect to the macro cell, includes determining, at a base station of the small cell, a loading state of the macro cell; and setting, at the base station, the bias parameter based on the determined loading state. A method of determining a cell border window (CBW) for the small cell, the small cell being underlaid with respect to the macro cell, the small cell having a plurality of attached UEs which are divided into inner cell UEs and border cell UEs, includes determining, at the base station, a difference value based on utilization values of the inner cell UEs and the border cell UEs; and adjusting the CBW based on the difference value and a threshold value.

  • Patent number: 8730885
    Abstract: A method is provided a wireless system for reliably transmitting context information in robust header compression at low signal energies. More particularly, the methodology of the invention provides an elongated virtual Transmission Time Interval (Super TTI) for the first few (in particular, the first) non-compressed packet (that includes upper layer headers) of a packet stream transmitted using ROHC compression. Improved reception reliability for the uncompressed packet, in particular to decode the headers, results by application to the Super TTI of a combination of TTI Bundling techniques, RLC segmentation and association with multiple HARQ processes and use of enough HARQ rounds.

  • Patent number: 8054826
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method and an apparatus for controlling service quality of data communications in a wireless network in which quality of service control for voice over internet protocol packets is provided on a downlink shared channel. A method is provided for a wireless communications between at least a first and a second service user. The method comprises prioritizing transmission of voice over internet protocol packets for the first and second service users over a shared downlink channel based on a first end-to-end delay that the first service user experiences relative to a second end-to-end delay that the second service user experiences. For example, such a priority adaptation may provide quality of service control for voice over internet protocol over a high-speed downlink packet access channel based on an end-to-end delay that a mobile-to-mobile user may be currently experiencing relative to a mobile-to-land user.
