  • Publication number: 20200092121
    Abstract: A gateway device (3, 4) and a configuration client (2) for supporting selective forwarding of messages published to a group address or a virtual address in a network (16, 17) of communicatively coupled communication devices (15), such as a Bluetooth Mesh system (1). The configuration client (2) maintains a mapping between unicast addresses of communication devices (15) and group and virtual addresses in the network (16, 17). At receipt of a message comprising a group or virtual address, the gateway device (3, 4) retrieves, from the configuration client (2), the unicast addresses of those communication devices (15) collectively identified by the group or virtual address in the received message. If the retrieved unicast addresses are all serviced by the gateway device (3, 4), the message is transmitted by the gateway device (3, 4) on all interfaces corresponding to the communication devices (15) addressed by the retrieved unicast addresses.

  • Publication number: 20200092792
    Abstract: A method for deactivating a relay feature of a relay node in a mesh network comprising a plurality of nodes, wherein said relay node formulates a connectivity report comprising routing information to a beacon node in said mesh network, said routing information being based on connectivity control messages received from said beacon node. The method comprises the steps of transmitting, by said relay node, said connectivity report to neighbouring nodes, transmitting, by said relay node, a query message to said neighbouring nodes for querying whether said relay feature of said relay node may be deactivated receiving, by said relay node, response messages from said neighbouring nodes, in response to said query message, wherein each of said response messages indicates that said relay feature of said relay node may be deactivated, and deactivating, by said relay node, said relay feature of said relay node based on said response messages from all of said neighbouring nodes.

  • Publication number: 20190253951
    Abstract: A relay node is configured to discover a route between a route origination node and a route destination node in a mesh communication network. The relay node in this regard generates a route request message that requests a route from the route origination node through the mesh communication network to the route destination node. The relay node transmits the route request message via unicast or broadcast, depending respectively on whether a routing table at the relay node has or does not have an entry indicating a known route to the route destination node.

  • Publication number: 20170149658
    Abstract: A method in a relay device for forwarding messages in a mesh based network comprises receiving a message to be forwarded (step 201), and determining whether the message is to be forwarded using a routing profile associated with the message (step 203). If so, the message is routed according to a routing profile (step 205). If not, the message is outed using a flood procedure (step 207).

  • Patent number: 8738000
    Abstract: In a method and an apparatus for indicating problems data from, typically automatically, entered cell relations is compared to site location information and mobile measurements, if available. An indication of a possible problem is triggered if the comparison indicates that the cell added as neighbors are not suitable as defined by one or many threshold functions. In accordance with one embodiment method of problem indication generation in a cellular radio system is provided. An apparatus receives a neighbor cell relation entries and site location information. The received information is compared and a problem indication is generated if the comparison indicates that cells entered neighbor cells are not close to each other as defined by at least one threshold values.

  • Patent number: 8213353
    Abstract: This document proposes soft activation and inactivation of (network) repeaters that are, for example, activated on an as-needed basis. With soft activation, repeater gain ramps upward at a controlled rate, thereby avoiding rapid changes in interference caused by the repeater. Likewise, with soft inactivation, repeater gain ramps downward at a controlled rate. Soft activation/inactivation results in more gradual changes in the interference contribution of the repeater, thereby improving the performance of interference-compensating radio receivers operating in proximity to the repeater.

    Abstract: This document proposes soft activation and inactivation of (network) repeaters that are, for example, activated on an as-needed basis. With soft activation, repeater gain ramps upward at a controlled rate, thereby avoiding rapid changes in interference caused by the repeater. Likewise, with soft inactivation, repeater gain ramps downward at a controlled rate. Soft activation/inactivation results in more gradual changes in the interference contribution of the repeater, thereby improving the performance of interference-compensating radio receivers operating in proximity to the repeater.

  • Patent number: 6822948
    Abstract: In a mobile communication network (SYS) data transmission between a radio base station (RBS) and a subscriber station (UE) is carried out by successively transmitting frames. The radio network controller (RNC) inserts at the beginning of the respective frames an indicator flag (MOP) indicating to the subscriber stations (UE) whether the frame or a succeeding frame contains data which must be read and decoded by the subscriber stations (UE). The subscriber station can by reading and decoding the indicator flag (MOP) determine that there is no necessity to read data from the present frame or a succeeding frame and can therefore use the time period of one or more frames to save network resources or to perform inter-frequency measurements on another frequency. The invention finds particular application in a WCDMA mobile communication system.

  • Patent number: 6721278
    Abstract: In a cellular telecommunications system, a method of dynamically allocating packet data radio channels among users competing in a same cell for the channels involves determining a user ranking for each of plural competing users in the cell, and classifying each of the plural competing users into one of plural ranking classes. A number of the packet data radio channels available for each of the ranking classes is then determined, after which the users within each ranking class are sorted by ranking. The packet data radio channels are allocated to the users by sorted position within ranking classes. The user ranking for each of the plural competing users in the cell is related to a weighted combination of plural measures of performance for the user.
