  • Publication number: 20080005638
    Abstract: A DTX to NACK error in a transmission in an HARQ of a mobile communications system can cause packet loss. To prevent the packet loss, when a transport block size indicator and a transmission status indicator are received, the DTX to NACK error is detected when the transport block size indicator indicates that the transmission is a retransmission and the transmission status indicator indicates that the transmission is a new transmission, and an error report with information indicating a lost transport block is sent to the HARQ transmitter.

  • Publication number: 20070298781
    Abstract: To reduce overhead in transmission of a wireless communications system upon handover from a source base station to a target base station, a request received by a transmitter for retransmitting a packet that has been confirmed before is neglected. Requests received by a receiver from the target base station for retransmitting a packet that has been confirmed by the source base station are also neglected.

  • Publication number: 20070293227
    Abstract: To handle downlink data upon handover of a user equipment from a source base station to a target base station in a wireless communications system, the source base station forwards a plurality of radio link control (RLC) service data units (SDUs) or RLC protocol data units (PDUs) that have not been positively acknowledged by the user equipment to the target base station. Then, the target base station sends the plurality of RLC SDUs or RLC PDUs to the user equipment.

  • Patent number: RE40077
    Abstract: A transmitter is capable of transmitting layer 2 protocol data units (PDUs). Each PDU has an n-bit sequence number. A base sequence number BT(A) is obtained that marks a beginning sequence number of a transmitting window of the transmitter. A current sequence number VT(S) is obtained that marks a sequence number of a PDU that is next to be transmitted by the transmitter. 2n is added to a difference of the current sequence number VT(S) and the base sequence number VT(A) to yield a first value. A second value is obtained that is a modulus of the first value with 2n. A test value is then obtained that is the second value divided by a size of the transmitting window. Polling is triggered when the test value is greater than or equal to a polling value. The polling value represents a percentage of the transmitting window that has been transmitted.
