  • Publication number: 20240187898
    Abstract: Various example embodiments relate to configuration of an apparatus to avoid frequency conflicts between activities associated with different subscriptions. The apparatus may receive, from a first network, a measurement configuration comprising an indication of a plurality of frequencies or cells for performing cell measurements. The apparatus may determine, from the plurality of frequencies or cells, at least one non-preferred frequency or cell at which simultaneous operation of the apparatus at the first network and at least one second network is restricted, and transmit, to the first network, an indication of the at least one non-preferred frequency or cell. The first network may be reconfigured to deprioritize use of the at least one non-preferred frequency or cell for the apparatus. Apparatuses, methods, and computer programs are disclosed.

  • Publication number: 20240155584
    Abstract: Techniques of wireless communications include enabling the UE to indicate region in the channel bandwidth of a band combination where the MSD is zero or small. The indication defines a frequency boundary where MSD is “low” (e.g., small or zero dB) and MSD is “high” (e.g., >0 dB), and may contain a frequency offset from the centre of the MSD originating source to the boundary. The UE indication may be given as part of UE capabilities (e.g., UE indicates per BC the MSD region and MSD value within the region), or as a part of UE response to a network request (e.g., network requests UE to report MSD values for a given band combination and UE provides the information), with a UE capability for supporting such request-response mechanism.

  • Patent number: 11895542
    Abstract: A technique of performing a HO includes the source BS sending a HO resume message to the UE at the conclusion of a RACH access procedure that occurs in response to a HO command while a second TRX of the UE continues to exchange data packets with the source BS as if no HO command were issued. By continuing to exchange data with the source BS as if there were no HO command until the HO resume message reintroduces a RACH-less HO procedure, the interruption may be reduced to about 4 msec. At any point in time the UE handles only one protocol stack and only one security, which avoids the complexity of the advanced prior art methods.
