  • Patent number: 12035364
    Abstract: An apparatus may receive a media access control (MAC) control element (CE) from a base station (BS) indicating a secondary cell (SCell) to be activated in an unlicensed band. The apparatus may initiate a timer with an end value in response to receiving the MAC CE and may further adjust a radio-frequency (RF) chain from a first state to a second state corresponding to the SCell to be activated. The apparatus may determine, based on measurements of one or more synchronization signal blocks (SSBs) transmitted from the BS indicating one or more listen before talk (LBT) failures corresponding to the SCell, one or more failed SSB transmissions corresponding to the SCell. Accordingly, the apparatus may readjust, in response to expiry of the timer, the RF chain from the second state to the first state and receive one or more additional SSBs in the first state.

  • Publication number: 20240223336
    Abstract: Approaches are described for receiving downlink signals simultaneously where analog beamforming is being used to increase the link budget between the base station and user equipment (UE). Alternatives within these approaches include the UE determining the synchronization signal block (SSB) to receive when there are multiple SSBs from different cells in a slot, and determining whether there are other signals in the same symbols with the selected SSB based on the type of signal and the SSB's functionality. In the case where there are another downlink signals channel state information-reference signal (CSI-RS) or physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH) from another cell, the UE selects the corresponding quasi co-location (QCL) assumption to receive the signals. Optionally, the UE can report whether it can support one or two QCL-TypeD at a time and whether it supports SSBs in different cells multiplexed in overlapped symbols.

  • Patent number: 12028838
    Abstract: A wireless device may establish communication with a network node and determine a relationship between transmission configuration indication (TCI) and bandwidth part (BWP). The wireless device may then receive an indication of one of TCI or BWP from the network node followed by determining the other of TCI or BWP based on the indication and using the relationship between the TCI and BWP. Finally, the wireless device may perform downlink communication using the indicated one of TCI or BWP and determined other TCI or BWP. The network node may be comprised in a non-terrestrial network and may specify via RRC signaling the relationship between TCI and BWP for the wireless device. The indication of the TCI or BWP may be provided by downlink control information (DCI), medium access control (MAC) control element (CE), an inactivity timer, or RRC reconfiguration commands.
