  • Patent number: 10009093
    Abstract: Various aspects of the disclosure relate to handoff (e.g., idle mode handoff or other types of handoff) for a user terminal. In some aspects, a user terminal (UT) may request idle mode handoff information from a ground network (GN). Idle mode handoff information may include, for example, start times for a set of satellites, whereby each particular start time indicates when the UT may handoff to the corresponding satellite. The UT may send the request for idle mode handoff information to the GN when the UT has a defined number of valid entries (e.g., one unexpired entry) remaining in an idle mode handoff table. In some aspects, the idle UT may send the request for idle mode handoff information to the GN based on a time associated with a particular entry in an idle mode handoff table or based on a time of validity of an idle mode handoff table.

  • Patent number: 9888426
    Abstract: Various aspects of the disclosure relate to handoff of a user terminal in communication with a satellite network portal through a satellite. In some aspects, a satellite network portal and a user terminal use a satellite handoff information to determine when to handoff the user terminal from one cell to another and/or from one satellite to another. In some aspects, a user terminal sends capability information, location information, or other information to a satellite network portal whereby, based on this information, the satellite network portal generates the satellite handoff information and/or selects a handoff procedure for the user terminal. In some aspects, handoff of a user terminal to a different satellite involves the user terminal conducting satellite signal measurements and sending a measurement message to the satellite network portal. In some aspects, the satellite network portal generates new satellite handoff information as a result of receiving a measurement message.

  • Patent number: 9049581
    Abstract: Systems and methodologies are described that facilitate indicating global cell identifier (GCI) reporting in wireless communication to mitigate confusion caused by physical cell identifier (PCI) reporting in heterogeneous deployments. In particular, mobile devices can report GCI of access points to disparate access points to facilitate communication therebetween, such as during handover. Mobile devices can indicate GCI reporting during a system access request by selecting an access sequence corresponding to subsequent GCI reporting. Based on the access sequence, an access point can grant additional resources to receive the GCI, and the mobile device can communicate GCI over the resources. Using the GCI, the access point can communicate with a disparate access point related to the GCI.

  • Patent number: 8743905
    Abstract: Techniques for bundling and ciphering data prior to transmission are described. In an exemplary design, a transmitting entity receives a plurality of service data units (SDUs) from an upper layer, assigns sequential sequence numbers to the SDUs, and bundles the SDUs into a single protocol data unit (PDU). In one design, the transmitting entity generates a single count value based on a sequence number of a designated SDU (e.g., the first SDU) in the PDU and ciphers all SDUs based on the single count value. In another design, the transmitting entity ciphers each segment of at least two SDUs in the PDU based on a count value for that segment. The transmitting entity generates a header with at least one sequence number and possibly length and/or other information for the SDUs. The transmitting entity forms the PDU with the header and the SDUs and passes the PDU to a lower layer.

  • Patent number: 8406172
    Abstract: A mobile communications system includes a radio access network, such as an Enhanced General Packet Radio Service (EGPRS) network, in which mobile stations are able to enter into a discontinuous transmission (DTX) mode. During DTX mode of a first mobile station that is allocated a channel portion (e.g., a time slot of a frame), the radio access network is able to multiplex traffic from another mobile station onto the same channel portion. A mechanism is provided to enable the first mobile station to send a request for re-allocation of the channel portion. The request includes a real-time fast access associated control channel (RTFACCH) resource request message (RTRRM). In response to the RTRRM, the radio access network sends an RTFACCH resource assignment message (RTUAM).
