  • Publication number: 20240098823
    Abstract: A master node (MN) that determines a manner of a protocol data unit (PDU) session to be served, wherein the manner of the PDU session includes a split PDU session between the MN and a secondary node (SN) or a whole PDU session served by the MN, generates a request message to be transmitted to the SN to setup PDU session resources on the SN based on the manner of the PDU session is to be served and indicates, to the SN, the manner of the PDU session to be served. A SN that receives, from a MN, a request message to setup PDU session resources, determines a manner of the PDU session to be served, and sets up the PDU session resources on the SN, based on at least the manner of the PDU session to be served.

  • Patent number: 11902877
    Abstract: Some embodiments of this disclosure include systems, apparatuses, methods, and computer-readable media for the reduction of handover interruptions. Some embodiments include a user equipment (UE) that supports simultaneous connectivity with a source 5G Node B (gNB) and a target gNB during a handover. Some embodiments include the UE receiving source path data packets from the source gNB and target path data packets from a target gNB. The UE performs a first reorder of the one or more source path data packets and the one or more target path data packets by sequence number (SN), and the UE performs header decompression on the reordered source path data packets, separately from the reordered target path data packets. After the header decompressions the UE performs a second reorder of the source path data packets and the target path data packets together by SN, and discards any duplicate data packets based on SNs.

  • Publication number: 20240023053
    Abstract: Various embodiments herein provide techniques for low power, high accuracy positioning (LPHAP) in a wireless cellular network. For example, the techniques may be used for a user equipment (UE) in RRC_INACTIVE and/or RRC_IDLE mode. In some embodiments, the UE may notify the network of a LPHAP requirement and/or capability. This may enable the network (e.g., location management function (LMF) and/or next generation Node B (gNB) to perform positioning in a power efficient way.

  • Patent number: 11843976
    Abstract: Disclosed are apparatuses for quality of service (QoS) flow to data radio bearer (DRB) mapping override bits. An apparatus of a user equipment (UE), includes one or more data storage devices, and one or more processors operably coupled to the one or more data storage devices. The one or more data storage devices are configured to store data corresponding to mapping of QoS flows to data radio bearers. The one or more processors are configured to map one or more QoS flows to a DRB in an uplink (UL) responsive to receipt, by the UE from a cellular base station, of a user plane packet in a downlink (DL) through the DRB if an override bit of the user plane packet indicates that reflective mapping should apply.

  • Patent number: 11838979
    Abstract: Embodiments of a next generation Node-B (gNB), User Equipment (UE) and methods for communication are generally described herein. A gNB may be configurable to operate as a master gNB (MgNB). The MgNB may transmit radio-resource control (RRC) signaling to provide information for dual connectivity to allow the UE to utilize radio resources of both a master cell group (MCG) associated with the MgNB and a secondary cell group (SCG) associated with a secondary gNB (SgNB). The MgNB may transmit, to the SgNB, an SgNB release request message that indicates a partial suspension of the dual connectivity, wherein: a first portion of a configuration for the SCG is to be maintained and a second portion of the configuration for the SCG is to be released.
