  • Patent number: 10848518
    Abstract: The disclosure relates to methods for establishing a secure communication link between a mobile station and a secondary base station in a mobile communication system. The disclosure is also providing mobile communication system for performing these methods, and computer readable media the instructions of which cause the mobile communication system to perform the methods described herein. Specifically, the disclosure suggests that in response to the detected or signaled potential security breach, the master base station increments a freshness counter for re-initializing the communication between the mobile station and the secondary base station; and the mobile station and the secondary base station re-initialize the communication there between. The re-initialization is performed under the control of the master base station and further includes deriving a same security key based on said incremented freshness counter, and establishing the secure communication link utilizing the same, derived security key.

  • Patent number: 10833831
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for transmitting a periodic channel quality report (CSI) and/or a sounding reference symbol (SRS) from a UE to an eNodeB. To avoid double decoding at the eNodeB in transient phases, a deterministic behavior of the UE is defined by the invention, according to which the eNodeB can unambiguously determine whether the UE will transmit the CSI/SRS or not. According to one embodiment, the UL grants and/or DL assignments received until and including subframe N?4 only are considered; UL grants and/or DL assignments received by the UE after subframe N?4 are discarded for the determination. Additionally, DRX-related timers at subframe N?4 are considered for the determination. In a second embodiment, DRX MAC control elements from the eNodeB, instructing the UE to enter DRX, i.e., become Non-Active, are only considered for the determination if they are received before subframe N?4, i.e., until and including subframe N?(4+k).

  • Publication number: 20200351966
    Abstract: Apparatuses, methods, and systems are disclosed for determining whether an active unicast session can be re-used. One apparatus includes a transceiver and a processor that receives, e.g., from an internal application or operating system, a first request to establish a unicast session over a direct communication link to a first UE. Here, the first request indicates a source application-layer identifier of the apparatus and a target application-layer identifier of the first UE. The processor determines whether an active unicast session between the source application-layer identifier and the target application-layer identifier already exists. If an active unicast session between the source application-layer identifier and the target application-layer identifier already exists, then the processor re-uses the already-existing active unicast session. Otherwise, the processor establishes a new unicast session between the apparatus and the first UE.

  • Patent number: 10819417
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to a method for activating a relay functionality of a ProSe capable and relay-capable user equipment within a mobile communication network. The radio base station, to which the relay UE is connected, determines whether further relays are necessary in the radio cell controlled by the radio base station. In case further relays are necessary in the radio cell, the radio base station selects a persistence check value and transmits a broadcast message in the radio cell. The broadcast message at least indicates that further relays are necessary and comprises the selected persistence check value. Upon receiving the broadcast message, the relay UE activates its relay functionality in case it determines that relay requirements for activating its relay functionality in the radio cell are fulfilled and in case a persistence check performed by the relay UE based on the received persistence check value is successful.
