  • Patent number: 11330470
    Abstract: Systems and methods described herein provide an intelligent MEC resource scheduling service. A network device in a MEC network stores, in a memory, threshold values indicating overload conditions for resource usage by a first MEC cluster; monitors resource usage in the first MEC cluster; determines, based on the monitoring, when one of the threshold values is reached; identifies available resources in a second MEC cluster; and re-directs, based on the identifying, at least some of the resource usage from the first MEC cluster to the second MEC cluster.

  • Patent number: 11330495
    Abstract: A Next Generation network device receives, from a user equipment device (UE), a Service Request for establishing a Multimedia Priority Services (MPS) session. The Next Generation network device determines whether the Service Request includes a MPS fallback request to request network fallback from a Next Generation network to a Fourth Generation (4G) network for the MPS session. The device causes, based on the Service Request including the MPS fallback request, establishment of the MPS session from the UE device via the 4G network by performing one of: a handover procedure from the Next Generation network to the 4G network, or a Radio Resource Control (RRC) redirection procedure from the Next Generation network to the 4G network.

  • Publication number: 20220141722
    Abstract: A system described herein may provide a technique for maintaining and transferring context information for a Dual Connectivity (“DC”)-capable User Equipment (“UE”) and a secondary Next Generation Node B (“gNB”) in situations where the UE is connected to a primary gNB and the secondary gNB and is handed over to an evolved Node B (“eNB”). The context information may be provided to the eNB without releasing resources or tearing down bearers at the secondary gNB, such that the UE may seamlessly continue communicating with the secondary gNB while a primary connection associated with the UE is handed over from the primary gNB to the eNB.

  • Publication number: 20220141713
    Abstract: Systems and methods described herein use group segmentation of applications (referred to herein as “slicing classes”), based on common service requirements, to allow carriers to assign UE traffic to network slices. A UE stores slicing class definitions for use with UE Route Selection Policies (URSP). Each of the slicing class definitions include network quality of service (QoS) characteristics that are applicable to network traffic for multiple software applications. The UE maps the software applications to corresponding slicing class identifiers associated with the slicing class definitions. The UE also stores URSP rules for associating a slicing class identifier with a network slice identifier. A UE operating system sends, to a modem, one of the slicing class identifiers for an application that is requesting attachment to a wireless network. The modem sends a registration request with a selected network slice identifier based on the received slicing class identifier and the URSP rules.

  • Patent number: 11310151
    Abstract: Systems and methods manage lookups for network repository functions (NRFs). A network device, such as a NRF, receives a discovery request for a network function instance in a wireless core network. The discovery request includes a hop limit value. The network device determines if a result for the discovery request is available and determines if the hop limit value is greater than a stop value, when the result for the discovery request is not available. The network device forwards the discovery request to another network device when the result for the discovery request is not available and when the hop limit value is greater than the stop value. The network device sends a terminal response to the discovery request when the hop limit value is not greater than the stop value.

  • Patent number: 11297525
    Abstract: An example method can include receiving information identifying a quality of service (QoS) flow for a communication session involving a user equipment (UE). The information can include a QoS profile and a QoS flow identifier (QFI). The method can include identifying, from a QoS profile, a QoS configuration identifier associated with the QoS flow and selecting a data radio bearer (DRB) for the communications associated with the QoS flow. The DRB can be selected based on a mapping of a plurality of DRBs to a plurality of QoS flows, and the mapping can be based on corresponding QoS configuration identifiers of the plurality of QoS flows. The method can include assigning the QoS flow to the DRB by adding the QFI of the QoS flow to the mapping relative to the DRB and causing the communications associated with the QoS flow to be transmitted using the DRB.

  • Patent number: 11290915
    Abstract: A system described herein may provide a technique for adaptive and dynamic beamforming in a radio access network (“RAN”) of a wireless network, based on information received from User Equipment (“UEs”) connected to the RAN, and/or information that can be attributed to UEs and/or users associated with UEs connected to the RAN. For example, a Beam Load Balancing System (“BLBS”) of some embodiments may use such information to identify beams, of one or more base stations, for which a configuration should be modified in order to provide RF connectivity to one or more UEs in a manner that optimizes Quality of Service (“QoS”) provided to the UEs and/or efficiently utilizes network resources.

    Abstract: Embodiments described herein may provide for the return (e.g., reconnection) of a User Equipment (“UE”) to a first radio access network (“RAN”) to which the UE was connected, after the UE has been redirected to a second RAN based on the occurrence of an event. The event may include a voice call placed by or to the UE. The return of the UE to the first RAN may occur based on the occurrence of another event, such as the voice call being terminated.

  • Patent number: 11284287
    Abstract: A device may receive data indicating a required quality of service (QoS), and may receive radio access network (RAN) information associated with a RAN, wherein the RAN information is provided by a centralized unit (CU) of the RAN. The device may provide the RAN information to a multi-access edge computing (MEC) platform, and may receive, from the MEC platform, a QoS request that requests the required QoS. The device may provide the QoS request to the CU, and may receive a QoS response to the QoS request. The device may provide the QoS response to a policy control function (PCF) of a core network, and may receive an indication of approval of the QoS response from the PCF. The device may cause, based on receiving the indication of approval, the required QoS to be implemented by the MEC platform and network devices associated with the core network.

  • Publication number: 20220086198
    Abstract: A device receives a call invitation message with a Session Description Protocol (SDP) offer for establishing a call between a calling party and a called party and obtains a set of network fallback rules associated with the called party. The device determines, based on the set of network fallback rules, whether to reject the call and avoid network fallback from a first wireless network to a second wireless network. The device sends, based on the determination, a call denial message without an SDP answer, to reject the call and avoid the network fallback.

  • Publication number: 20220086656
    Abstract: Systems and methods provide reliable voice connections dual-connectivity environments, given limitations of available spectrum. A system includes a first wireless station and a second wireless station. The first wireless station provides a shared spectrum of a first frequency band, the shared spectrum including a first spectrum for a first cellular wireless standard and a second spectrum for a second cellular wireless standard. The second wireless station is at least partially within a coverage area of the first wireless station and provides a third spectrum for the second cellular wireless standard. The third spectrum is a millimeter wave (mmWave) spectrum. The first wireless station broadcasts a parameter barring an end device in an idle mode from camping on the second spectrum. The first wireless station or the second wireless station triggers the end device to swap to the second spectrum when a paging request for a voice call is received.
