  • Publication number: 20200059961
    Abstract: Systems and methods for efficient use of unlicensed spectrum are disclosed. In some embodiments, a method performed by a transmitter comprises performing a Listen-Before-Talk (LBT) procedure for a channels within a transmit bandwidth of the transmit node, where the transmit bandwidth is divided into a bandwidth parts that correspond to the channels. The method further comprises transmitting a transmission in a subset of the bandwidth parts that correspond to a subset of the channels determined, based on a result of the LBT procedure, to be available. Transmitting the transmission comprises transmitting the transmission in accordance with a transmit scheme that uses carrier aggregation and/or carrier merging to transmit the transmission on the subset of the bandwidth parts and uses resources in one or more guard bands between two or more adjacent bandwidth parts from among the subset of the bandwidth parts.

  • Patent number: 10555857
    Abstract: A patient support is provided with a membrane made of a stretchable material. The membrane may be fixed in one embodiment to lateral supports and used as a patient's knee or calf support. During use, the membrane can stretch on the application of force by a patient, which stretch will reduce discomfort and pain and can also assist in preventing slippage of the patient during movement. The flexible membrane may be used also in patient slings and other supports.

  • Patent number: 10542512
    Abstract: There is provided a method for time synchronization of stations (STAs) in a wireless local area network. An access point (AP) transmits a request to at least two STAs for the at least two STAs to transmit a response to the AP, the request indicating which frequency sub-band each of the at least two STAs is to use for transmitting the response. Responses to the request are received from the at least two STAs, wherein each of the responses comprises orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA) symbols. For each of the at least two STAs, a time delay is determined based on the responses. Then, control signalling is transmitted to the at least two STAs, the control signalling comprising time alignment commands for the at least two STAs, wherein each time alignment command is based on the time delay for one of the at least two STAs.

  • Patent number: 10523244
    Abstract: A method of redundantly encoding data includes formatting the data into columns and rows, and generating first and second sets of projections of the data using an encoding transform. For each set of projections generated, an encoding parameter of the encoding transform is set to a different value. The first and second sets of projections are stored as the encoded data. A decoding method reads settings including an indication of a number of data fragments. The number of data fragments is compared to a number of projections in a first set of projections of the encoded data in order to determine whether to use a first or a second decoding mode. The encoded data is then decoded according to the selected decoding mode and the result is outputted.

  • Publication number: 20190394800
    Abstract: A communications device and a method therein for accessing a Resource Unit (RU) are provided. The communications device and an Access Point (AP) are operating in a wireless communications network. When wanting to start an access attempt within a time interval, the communications device selects a counter value from a first range given by zero and a first Contention-Window OFDMA (CWO) value CWO1. Further, when wanting to start an access attempt outside the time interval, the communications device selects the counter value from a second range given by zero and a second CWO value CWO2, wherein the second CWO value CWO2 is larger than the first CWO value CWO1. The communications device performs a contention procedure using the selected counter value, wherein a Resource Unit (RU) is accessed in dependence of the performed contention procedure.

  • Patent number: 10506519
    Abstract: An UL carrier frequency or a downlink carrier frequency is adapted as a consequence of a determination that there is a difference in link budgets between uplink and downlink. Since a downlink provides a geographical coverage that is of a certain size, a lesser reliability of the uplink has a consequence that a mobile terminal may not be able to communicate when located far from a network node that transmits the downlink but still within the geographical coverage area of the downlink. Such drawbacks of present day wireless communication systems can be at least mitigated by embodiments of the present disclosure.

  • Patent number: 10477410
    Abstract: A process for selecting frequency channel(s) used by a network node (20) operating in an unlicensed band is disclosed. To that end, a network node (20) analyzes a signal received for each of multiple frequency channels using autocorrelation techniques, and thus without first demodulating the signals, to determine what types of wireless communication devices (32) are contributing to the load of each frequency channel. The network node (20) then selects one of the frequency channels for scheduling communications in the unlicensed band with a wireless communication device (30), where the selection is responsive not only to the estimated load, but also to the identified types of other wireless communication devices (32).
