  • Publication number: 20190212724
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A user equipment (UE) configured as a drone-coupled wireless device may be configured to transmit a message indicating information relating to the drone-coupled wireless device (e.g., aerial state, non-aerial state, airborne status, drone capability, quality of service (QoS) requirements of a drone service) to a base station. The message may also carry a session connectivity request, which the base station may use to determine that the UE is a drone-coupled wireless device, establish a bearer appropriate for a subscription service of the UE (e.g., as indicated by the drone capability), and apply appropriate protocols for the UE.

  • Publication number: 20190190682
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to a method of operating a user equipment (UE) for wireless communication with a network. In some aspects, the UE obtains a medium access control (MAC) control element (CE) from a network. The MAC CE may be configured to indicate any one of a plurality of state transition actions for a secondary cell. The UE transitions to a secondary cell dormant state when a state transition action indicated by the MAC CE includes a transition to the secondary cell dormant state.

  • Publication number: 20190159257
    Abstract: Various features presented herein facilitate early data transmission (EDT) in eMTC and NB-IoT. In certain aspects, a UE (e.g., an eMTC and/or NB-IoT type device), may receive an indication in a SIB from a base station that may enable EDT by the UE. The UE may transmit a random access request based on the SIB. The UE may further receive an MCS index in an RAR, and transmit a connection request (e.g., Msg3) to the base station based on the MCS index and the indication in the SIB. Some aspects described herein relate to an improved rate matching technique. In certain aspects, a UE may be configured to transmit a connection request message to a base station based on at least one of an increased number of RVs than a number of RVs for other transmissions from the UE or rate matching performed across more than one subframe.

  • Publication number: 20190159126
    Abstract: Certain aspects of the present disclosure relate to methods and apparatus for reporting aperiodic channel quality indicator (A-CQI) in a new Secondary Cell (SCell) state of Long Term Evolution (LTE) carrier aggregation. A User Equipment (UE) receives a request for reporting A-CQI relating to a Scell configured for the UE when the UE is in a first state corresponding to the Scell, the first state designed for a reduced SCell activation latency and to result in the UE using lower power as compared to when the UE is in a second state. The UE, in response to the request, reports the A-CQI for the Scell in accordance with a first A-CQI reporting configuration for the first state which is different from a second A-CQI reporting configuration for the second state.

  • Publication number: 20190150094
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A wireless device, such as a user equipment (UE), may receive a configuration of a wake-up signal periodicity and perform discontinuous monitoring for a plurality of wake-up signals based at least in part on the wake-up signal periodicity. In some cases, the UE may perform a radio resource management (RRM) measurement according to an RRM measurement periodicity that corresponds to the wake-up signal periodicity. In such cases, the UE may monitor for paging messages to receive paging information, or updates to system information, during one or more wake-up signal occasions that correspond to the RRM measurement periodicity. For instance, paging information may be received while the UE is performing RRM measurements, where paging message may be monitored for based on the wake-up signal periodicity.

  • Publication number: 20190053042
    Abstract: In an example, a method of communication of a UE may include establishing, by the UE, a connection with a base station. The method may include sending, by the UE to the base station, UE capability information in response to a trigger. The UE capability information may be based on whether one or more capabilities of the UE differs or is the same between a first coverage mode and a second coverage mode. In another example, a method of communication of a UE may include establishing, by the UE, a connection with a base station. The method may include sending, to the base station, first UE capability information in response to a first trigger. The method may include sending, by the UE to the base station, second UE capability information in response to a second trigger. The second UE capability information may be different from the first UE capability information.

  • Publication number: 20190037634
    Abstract: In an aspect, while a mobile device is operating in a RRC_Idle State, an RRC_Suspended State, an RLF State and/or an RLF Recovery Procedure State, the mobile device may transmit a connection establishment message to a base station of a plurality of base stations. In an aspect, the connection establishment message includes information that indicates whether the mobile device has information associated with signals transmitted by one or more base stations of the plurality of base stations. The mobile device may initiate transmission of the information associated with the signals to the base station subsequent to establishing a security context for the connection between the mobile device and the base station. In some aspects, the mobile device may scramble the information associated with signals and transmit the information associated with signals to the base station prior to establishing a security context for a connection between the mobile device and the base station.

  • Publication number: 20190021026
    Abstract: Uplink (UL) data splits between LTE and WLAN can be go supported in cellular networks. The split can be UE controlled or network controlled. Both UE and network controlled bearer split architectures can be supported. The reporting of Uplink Buffer Status (BSR) and the subsequent data allocation can depend on what option is supported by the network. For UE controlled UL data splits, the UE determines a traffic split ratio between LTE and WLAN. The split can be based on local link conditions. For network controlled UL data splits, the network (e.g. a Link Aggregation Scheduler at the eNB) is responsible for making bearer split decisions. The decisions can be based on link qualities, available traffic and quality of service (QoS) requirements of associated users. The split can be based on a per bearer threshold, an eNB configured ratio, or an implicit inference based on a UL grant.
