  • Publication number: 20230308985
    Abstract: A wireless transmit / receive unit, WTRU, connects to a first AP, receives domain identifiers, requests corresponding descriptors and receives a list of descriptors. An application on the WTRU requests a list of domains and attributes corresponding to service names or service sets, which is returned by the WTRU. The application selects one or more domains for communications, the WTRU selects corresponding network resources and the application connects to local services. After moving to a new location, the WTRU connects to a second AP and receives a second set of domain identifiers, selects the one matching the request from the application and provides these to the application that, with the aid of the WTRU connects to local services.

  • Publication number: 20230171824
    Abstract: A method for setting up a multiple radio access technology (multi-RAT) device-to-device (D2D) communication is disclosed. An application function (AF) in a wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) may identify a group of multiple radio access technology (multi-RAT) capable WTRUs to a policy control function (PCF), wherein one or more multi-RAT capable WTRUs of the group of multi- RAT capable WTRUs register as having enhanced device-to-device (ED2D) functionality. The AF may select a multi-RAT capable WTRU from the group of multi-RAT capable WTRUs having ED2D functionality, as a relay for extended D2D operation. The device with ED2D function will act as Relay for ED2D (RED2D). The PCF may then reconfigure the RED2D with group related information. The RED2D may then configure D2D communication among the group of multi-RAT capable WTRUs.

  • Publication number: 20230080757
    Abstract: As disclosed herein, there are one or more methods, systems, and/or devices relating to enhanced broadcast services and network optimization. In one example, a wireless network node may send a consumed service discovery request to a station (STA) via an access network query protocol (ANQP), wherein the STA is not associated with the network node. The network node may receive a consumed service discovery response including a set of service IDs and a B SSID of an access point (AP) for each service ID in the set of service IDs, wherein each service ID of the set of service IDs is a service consumed by the STA. In some cases, the consumed services are enhanced broadcast services (eBCS), the request is an ANQP query encapsulated in a GAS broadcast message, and/or request is an ANQP query encapsulated in a GAS groupcast message or a GAS unicast message.

  • Publication number: 20220408250
    Abstract: Service information (e.g., enhanced broadcast service (eBCS) information) may be distributed. Service (e.g., eBCS) capabilities may be advertised (e.g., by an access point (AP)), for example, by broadcasting a public action frame. A public action frame may include per-service information. A public action frame may be transmitted on a per service basis. A public action frame may combine authentication information and service information. Enhanced broadcast service origin authentication may be performed on a per service basis (e.g., using origin authentication information to authenticate broadcast data frames for a consumed service). Origin authentication information may be common to frames associated with different services. Services may be consumed without querying a service originating device. Stations (e.g., with and without association with an AP) may report consumption or usage of services, Reporting may be unsolicited or solicited (e.g., in response to a request from an AP).

  • Publication number: 20070060142
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for efficient operation of an enhanced dedicated channel (E-DCH) are disclosed. A physical layer processing includes computation of various control parameters followed by actual processing of the data to be transmitted. In accordance with the present invention, the computation of the control parameters is performed asynchronously from the associated data operation. A medium access control (MAC) layer provides information needed for computation of the control parameters to the physical layer as early as possible, while the data is being processed in parallel. The provided data includes a hybrid automatic repeat request (H-ARQ) profile, a transport block size, power offset, or the like. By sending this data to the physical layer before MAC-e processing is complete, the latency constraint can be significantly relaxed.

  • Publication number: 20070014229
    Abstract: A protocol engine (PE) for processing data within a protocol stack in a wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) is disclosed. The protocol stack executes decision and control operations. The data processing and re-formatting which was performed in a conventional protocol stack is removed from the protocol stack and performed by the PE. The protocol stack issues a control word for processing data and the PE processes the data based on the control word. Preferably, the WTRU includes a shared memory and a second memory. The shared memory is used as a data block place holder to transfer the data amongst processing entities. For transmit processing, the PE retrieves source data from the second memory and processes the data while moving the data to the shared memory based on the control word. For receive processing, the PE retrieves received data from the shared memory and processes it while moving the data to the second memory.

  • Publication number: 20050262344
    Abstract: A data processing system ciphers and transfers data between a first memory unit and a second memory unit, such as, for example, between a share memory architecture (SMA) static random access memory (SRAM) and a double data rate (DDR) synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM). The system includes a ciphering engine and a data-mover controller. The data-mover controller includes at least one register having a field that specifies whether or not the transferred data should be ciphered. If the field specifies that the transferred data should be ciphered, the field also specifies the type of ciphering that is to be performed, such as a third generation partnership project (3GPP) standardized confidentially cipher algorithm “f8” or integrity cipher algorithm “f9”.

  • Publication number: 20050128963
    Abstract: A wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) comprises a terminal end and a mobile terminal. The terminal end provides packets for transfer over a wireless interface. The mobile terminal receives the provided packets and processes the packets for transfer over the wireless interface. The mobile terminal monitors the provided packets and determines whether a quality of service (QoS) change is desired. The mobile terminal requests a change of QoS of a wireless network based on the determination.
