  • Publication number: 20220304075
    Abstract: Various embodiments of the present disclosure provide a method for random access. The method which may be performed by a terminal device comprises performing a transmission of a message to a network node in a random access procedure. The transmission of the message may comprise transmission of a preamble and transmission of a payload on a shared channel. The method further comprises receiving a response message from the network node. In response to the response message, the terminal device may perform a retransmission of the payload on the shared channel to the network node according to retransmission configuration.

  • Publication number: 20220298359
    Abstract: An ionic liquid-based composition for protecting lithium metal anodes in a lithium-based electrochemical energy storage system, comprising a polymerizable ionic liquid (or ionic liquid monomer), the cation or the anion of which carries at least one polymerizable function, a non-polymerizable ionic liquid, an ionic liquid of the “crosslinker” type, the cation or the anion of which carries at least two polymerizable functions, and a lithium salt. This composition is then coated and polymerized onto a metallic lithium surface and serves as protection layer. The ionic liquid-based polymer composition coated as such on the lithium surface, even if it is swelling with liquid electrolyte, protects the lithium against a constant electrolyte consumption and formation of unstable solid-electrolyte interphase (SEI), which is continuously forming on a bare lithium surface. The growing of dendrites is retarded with such ionic liquid-based polymer composition protection.

  • Publication number: 20220295574
    Abstract: A method for channel state information. The method which may be performed by a terminal device comprises receiving a channel state information request from a network node. The method further comprises transmitting a channel state information report to the network node in a random access procedure, in response to the channel state information request. The method can be supported in a random access procedure to request and/or report channel state information in a more flexible manner, so that the network performance and transmission efficiency can be improved.

  • Publication number: 20220279220
    Abstract: Disclosed embodiments include a content consumption monitor (CCM) determines surges in content consumption based on changes in content consumptions scores. The CCM determines the content consumptions scores for domains and/or organizations (orgs) based on session events generated by different devices/users from the org and/or domain, a number of events generated by the org/domain, content and/or user interactions with the content indicated by the events, relevancy scores of the content to one or more topics, and/or other criteria. The CCM detects surges in consumption or interest in a topic for the domain/org when the consumption score reaches a threshold and/or within a period of time. The CCM may adjust the consumption score based on the changes in the relevancy, number of events and/or the number of users over different time periods. Other embodiments may be described and/or claimed.

  • Publication number: 20220232464
    Abstract: Systems, devices and methods for a user equipment (UE) to perform public land mobile network (PLMN) selection with a non-terrestrial network (NTN). A UE performs a non-access stratum (NAS) procedure with a public land mobile network (PLMN) of an NTN. The UE receives a NAS message from the PLMN, and the NAS message indicates that the UE is not allowed to access a core network of the NTN. The NAS message may indicate that the UE is not allowed to access the core network of the NTN because a location of the UE is unknown to the NTN, that access to the NTN is not allowed in a country in which the UE is located, or that a location of the UE is not within a country associated with the NTN. The UE modifies its PLMN search procedure responsive to receiving the NAS message.

  • Publication number: 20220232480
    Abstract: A technique for allocating transmit power for uplink, UL, radio transmission is described. As to a method aspect, a method of allocating transmit power for at least two UL transmissions on one or more cells (302, 304) of a radio access network, RAN, is provided. The method comprises or initiates the step of allocating (202) the transmit power for the UL transmissions. A total transmit power resulting from the allocation is less than or equal to a maximum transmit power by allocating the transmit power to the UL transmissions according to a priority order of the UL transmissions. At least one UL transmission of a low-latency communication is prioritized over at least one UL transmission of a regular communication according to the priority order.

  • Publication number: 20220230078
    Abstract: Disclosed embodiments includes a network classification system (NCS) that generates a set of machine learning (ML) features from information about information objects accessed by various users, and determines an organization (org) type associated with the network address based on the set of ML features. Obtained network events may include the information about the accessed information objects. A content consumption monitor (CCM) generates consumption scores for the network addresses based on the identified org types. The CCM can generate more accurate intent and consumption data by filtering out events unrelated to content consumption for that org type. The NCS and the CCM may be implemented as the same network function, or the NCS and CCM may be implemented as separate network functions. Other embodiments may be described and/or claimed.
