  • Patent number: 11229028
    Abstract: The present technology provides a computer-implemented method and system for performing frequency selective scheduling between a user equipment (UE) and a base station. The UE selects a sub-band within a predetermined system bandwidth based on observed radio conditions. The UE then communicates the selected sub-band to the base station. The base station then selects a LTE resource block having a frequency range falling within the sub-band. The selected resource block is then used for communication between the base station and the UE. The process may be repeated at a frequency related to the channel coherence.

  • Patent number: 10455575
    Abstract: The present technology provides a method, apparatus and system for facilitating uplink communication from a user equipment (UE) to a base station in an LTE communication system. One or more frequency subcarriers within a predetermined LTE resource block are selected, covering less than the entire frequency range of the LTE resource block. The selected one or more frequency subcarriers are then used for communication from the UE to the base station.

  • Publication number: 20180110033
    Abstract: Multiple channels are aggregated. In an example embodiment, first data is transmitted on a first channel to a wireless device, and second data is simultaneously transmitted on a second channel to the wireless device. The first data and the second data are transmitted in a coordinated manner by aggregating the first channel and the second channel. Various example channel characteristics and combinations thereof are described. Different data allocation options for aggregated channels are described. Other alternative implementations are also presented herein.

  • Patent number: 7847740
    Abstract: An antenna system comprises a receive diversity antenna system and a configurable antenna arrangement. Incoming signals are received through the receive diversity antenna system and outgoing signals are transmitted through the configurable antenna arrangement. A controller generates control signals to adjust the configurable antenna arrangement to change the transmission performance characteristics of the configurable antenna arrangement. The configurable antenna arrangement may be a smart antenna, a plurality of antennas, or a configurable antenna where transmission characteristics change in response to control signals.

  • Patent number: 7508791
    Abstract: In a wireless communication system, data is encoded by packet indifferent (PI) coding and some packets are transmitted omnidirectionally while supplemental packets are transmitted directionally to a user with a poor air link. PI encoding is defined herein as encoding in which the source data can be recovered from any K of the encoded packets, regardless of which of the encoded packets are received, where K=N+A. N is equal to the number of packets in the source data and A is the number of additional packets required due to the PI encoding. A subset of M data packets can be sent to one or many users from an omnidirectional antenna, where M is greater than or equal to K. If less than K data packets are received by at least one user, then the data block is not successfully received by that user. A number R of supplemental packets can be sent to users that did not receive K data packets successfully.
