  • Publication number: 20240072871
    Abstract: Example embodiments of the present disclosure relate to transmit power control for beam management. The first device transmits a first configuration to a second device. The first configuration indicates information about at least one candidate beam assigned to the second device. Alternatively, or in addition, the first configuration further indicates a correspondence between the at least one candidate beam and a plurality of transmission occasions, where the plurality of transmission occasions are allocated by the first device for transmission from the second device to the first device while the second device is in an inactive mode. The first device detects transmissions from the second device according to the first configuration at the plurality of transmission occasions. Through this solution, a beam management solution and efficient resource configuration for a device in an inactive mode is proposed.

  • Patent number: 11916799
    Abstract: Systems, methods, apparatuses, and computer program products for reducing latency in 5G/NR are provided. One method may include determining, by a network node, to apply selective reordering of one or more data units received at a user equipment, and indicating the decision to apply selective reordering to the user equipment. The selective reordering temporarily alters packet data convergence protocol window behaviour in the user equipment such that a packet data convergence protocol layer in the user equipment is caused to deliver, to upper layer(s), the stored data units with an associated count value that is less than the count value associated with a data unit at the user equipment and/or the stored data units with consecutively associated count values starting from the count value associated with a data unit at the user equipment.

    Abstract: An example embodiment relates to Random Access Channel, RACH, procedure, for example in the New Radio, NR. Random access procedures may be of two types, contention based CBRA and contention free, CFRA. A client device may only perform CBRA fallback when none of the reference signal received strengths, RSRPs, of the synchronization signal blocks, SSBs, which is associated with the CFRA resources is above a predefined threshold, T1. All SSBs and CSI-RS with associated CFRA resources may be below the threshold. Then, the client device may select an SSB or CSI-RS according to a predefined rule and perform CFRA when CFRA resources are associated.

  • Publication number: 20230403745
    Abstract: A UE receives, in a paging message, information corresponding to random-access priority. The UE applies, in response to a random access being triggered, the random-access priority according to the information received in the paging message. A network node in a wireless system generates information corresponding to random-access priority for a UE to use for a random-access procedure. The network node sends, in a paging message, information corresponding to the random-access priority toward the user equipment.

  • Publication number: 20230403680
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to determination of terminal device's identify. A terminal device determines an identity (ID) of the terminal device based on configuration status of extended Discontinuous Reception (eDRX) and current Radio Resource Control (RRC) state of the terminal device; and determines one or both of paging frame (PF) and paging occasion (PO) based on the determined ID of the terminal device. In this way, paging in the eDRX can work well in RRC idle state or RRC inactive state, and the network and the UE may be synchronized with UE's PF and PO for paging in the eDRX.
