  • Publication number: 20210160706
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. The method, systems, and devices may include techniques for establishing a first connection with a first cell operating in accordance with a first radio access technology (RAT), and performing a beam sweep procedure for one or more candidate beams for adding or handover to a second cell operating in accordance with millimeter wave (mmW) RAT.

  • Publication number: 20210068193
    Abstract: Apparatus, methods, and computer-readable media for facilitating multi-tasking and smart location selection during connected-mode discontinuous reception (CDRX) mode are disclosed herein. Example techniques disclosed herein enable a UE to perform multiple tasks during a same SSBS to reduce the number of wake-up SSBSs. For example, disclosed techniques enable a UE to perform RLM tasks and loop tracking tasks during a first SSBS and thereby reduce the number of wake-up SSBSs. In some examples, the UE may also perform the search task or the measurement task during the same first SSBS and, thereby, further reduce the number of wake-up SSBSs. Example techniques disclosed herein may also enable the UE to select which SSBS occurrences to wake-up for during the OFF duration of the CDRX cycle.

  • Publication number: 20200281005
    Abstract: Dynamic User Equipment (UE) beam switching for millimeter wave (mmWave) measurements in asynchronous networks is discussed in which a UE configured with a plurality of UE beams receives timing information of detected cells in an asynchronous network, and calculates, based on the timing information, a maximum offset for the detected cells indicating a timing difference between a pair of cells of the detected cells that is larger than a timing difference between any other pair of the detected cells. A UE beam switch from a UE beam to another UE beam of the plurality of beams is scheduled based on the maximum offset, which includes using the maximum offset to determine how often the UE beam switch can be performed. Other aspects and features are also claimed and described.

An input signal is generated by the switching control element according to a single-step operation of a user and transmitted to the switching module. A switching signal is generated by the switching module after the input signal is received. The operating system unit judges whether the switching signal is an input language switching signal or an input method switching signal after the switching signal is received. According to the switching signal, the input language or the input method is switched by the operating system unit.

  • Publication number: 20100152893
    Abstract: An automated method of purchasing kiosk items, where a toll call from a variety of typically mobile appliances (i.e. cell phone, PDA, tablet PC, personal desktop or laptop computer, etc.) activates an apparatus that causes the automated kiosk to fulfill demanded items upon successful validation and billing via an interface to a telecommunications network. A mobile phone can therefore be billed by dialing a “1-900” type toll number and specify the desired product via touch tone commands, or by similarly “texting” the order to a designated telecommunications recipient. Furthermore, the apparatus includes a means to provide maintenance and diagnostics and services so as to minimize operating costs of the kiosk system, along with necessary management services such as inventory control. The kiosk can be interfaced with the telecommunications network in a variety of ways, such as, but not limited to POTS modem for twisted pair copper, DSL modem for twisted pair copper, Ethernet controller for CAT-5, etc.
