  • Patent number: 10708973
    Abstract: Technology for an eNodeB operable to support Cellular Internet of Things (CIoT) is disclosed. The eNodeB can generate a system information block (SIB) that includes one or more indicators that one or more CIoT Evolved Packet System (EPS) optimizations are supported at the eNodeB. The eNodeB can encode, at the eNodeB, the SIB for transmission to a user equipment (UE) to enable the eNodeB to receive a request from the UE for a use of the CIoT EPS optimizations. The eNodeB can decode a radio resource control (RRC) connection setup complete message received from the UE. The RRC connection setup complete message can include one or more indicators that one or more CIoT EPS optimizations are supported at the UE.

  • Patent number: 10681525
    Abstract: Technology to support access-class-barring (ACB) skipping for commercial and public-safety user equipments (UEs) is disclosed. A cellular mobile network experiencing congestion at the core network level can be configured to send a communication to UEs indicating that ACB may be skipped by UEs seeking to establish device-to-device (D2D) communication using a first mode of D2D resource allocation wherein D2D resources are allocated by the network. In addition, the network can be configured to send a communication indicating that a second mode of D2D resource allocation wherein D2D resources are allocated by the UEs may be used as an alternative to the first mode. The network may also indicate that the second mode can be used as a fallback when current ACB parameters indicate that use of the first mode is not currently permitted.

  • Patent number: 10455505
    Abstract: Technology described herein relates to systems, methods, and computer readable media to implement extended Discontinuous Reception (eDRX) for user equipments (UEs). A Mobility Management Entity (MME) can be aware of the starting time and length of an eDRX cycle of a UE so that the MME can send a paging message for the UE to an evolved Node B (eNB) shortly ahead of a Paging Occasion (PO). In some examples, more than one PO can be included within an eDRX cycle. An eDRX timer can be used to control the duration of waking times and, if desired, to maintain legacy compatibility. Additional examples provide a way for the MME to update calculations regarding the starting time and length of eDRX cycle of the UE such that the MME will continue to be apprised of when the UE will be reachable when the UE moves between cells.

  • Publication number: 20190320483
    Abstract: Techniques described herein may be used to enable User Equipment (UE) to switch between Radio Access Technologies (RATs) while transitioning from an inactive state to an active state. For example. a UE may connect to a base station via one type of RAT (e.g., Long-Term Evolution (LTE) RAT), enter an inactive state, and later, while transitioning from the inactive state to an active state, connect to another base station via another type of RAT (e.g., a New Radio (NR) or 5th Generation (5G) RAT). The UE may transition from one RAT to another RAT without increasing signaling between the UE and the network beyond minimal signaling involved in a transition of the UE from the inactive state to an active state. The network may further minimize signaling by determining and communicating minimized connection configuration information to the UE.

  • Patent number: 10327207
    Abstract: Embodiments are described herein for selective joinder of wireless cells by machine-type communication (“MTC”) user equipment (“UE”). An MTC UE may detect a plurality of wireless cells, each provided by an evolved Node B (“eNB”). The MTC UE may detect eNB categories associated with individual wireless cells of the plurality of wireless cells, and may identify one or more wireless cells of the plurality of detected wireless cells on which MTC traffic is permitted based on the associated eNB categories. The MTC UE may selectively join a wireless cell of the one or more identified wireless cells based on a cell selection criterion. Additionally, an eNB may provide a wireless cell and provide, to an MTC UE, an MTC policy that identifies a circumstance under which the eNB will permit MTC traffic. The eNB may be configured to selectively serve the MTC UE based on the MTC policy.

  • Patent number: 10153816
    Abstract: Technology for communicating small data between a user equipment (UE) and an evolved node B (eNB) is described. The UE may communicate with the eNB to establish a small data radio bearer (SDRB), wherein the SDRB is used for communicating the small data from the UE to the eNB. The UE may enter a power saving mode according to a power saving configuration. The UE or the eNB may maintain UE context information for the SDRB while the UE is in the power saving mode. The SDRB may be reestablished using the UE context information when the UE awakes from the power saving mode to enable the UE to communicate the small data on the SDRB to the eNB.
