  • Patent number: 11991645
    Abstract: The technologies described herein are generally directed to determining a response by a user equipment to a signal from a base station based on transmission signal strength relayed with the signal in a fifth generation (5G) network or other next generation networks. For example, a method described herein can include receiving initial signal from base station equipment, with the initial signal encoding a signal strength of the base station transmission, which can facilitate establishing a connection between the user equipment and the base station equipment. The method can further include, based on the signal strength value, estimating a likelihood that a response signal from the user equipment would be able to reach base station equipment. Further, the method can include, based on the estimated likelihood, determine a response to initial signal.

  • Patent number: 11956855
    Abstract: A system enables a home operator to establish an automated monitoring process which identifies outage events on competitor wireless networks (e.g., peer operators) operating in the same geographies as home operator. The home operator then is able to selectively offer, in near real-time, to open roaming to the peer operator, or implement roaming automatically based on predefined and mutually agreed upon rule sets. The monitoring process may observe non-customer attach request volumes in order to identify outage events on competitor wireless networks.
