  • Publication number: 20180359786
    Abstract: A method of wireless communication by a user equipment (UE) without a radio resource control (RRC) connection to a base station includes receiving system information from the base station and transmitting a data communication to the base station over a control plane without establishing an RRC connection with the base station. A UE in an RRC suspended state may transmit a data communication to the base station over a user plane without resuming an RRC connection with the base station. The data communication may comprise data and UE identity information and/or a cause indication. A base station may indicate resources in the system information for the transmission of the data communication information and receive the data communication over the control plane without establishing an RRC connection with the UE or over a user plane without resuming an RRC connection with an RRC suspended UE.

  • Publication number: 20180343612
    Abstract: Some aspects described herein reduce the negative performance impact associated with the voltage droop of a user equipment (UE) battery. For example, aspects described herein may be used to configure a UE with a pattern that includes a battery recovery time period that prevents a battery voltage of the UE from falling below a critical threshold and/or reduces the likelihood of the battery voltage falling below the critical threshold. In this way, UE performance may be improved, battery performance may be improved, battery life may be extended, and/or the like.

  • Publication number: 20180324580
    Abstract: In an embodiment, a drone-coupled UE transmits a message to a network component (e.g., eNB) of a terrestrial wireless communication subscriber network that identifies a drone-coupled capability information of the drone-coupled UE, the drone-coupled capability information being configured to indicate, to the network component, that the drone-coupled UE is capable of engaging in a flying state. The network component receives the message and determines that the drone-coupled UE is capable of engaging in a flying state based on the received message.

  • Publication number: 20180324581
    Abstract: In an embodiment, a drone-coupled UE determines whether the drone-coupled UE is engaged in a flying state, and transmits a message to a network component of a terrestrial wireless communication subscriber network that indicates a result of the determining. The network component receives the message from the drone-coupled UE. In an embodiment, a network component of a terrestrial wireless communication subscriber network determines whether the drone-coupled UE is engaged in a flying state based on the message from the drone-coupled UE. The network component then applies protocols based on the determining.

  • Publication number: 20180324662
    Abstract: In an embodiment, a network component (e.g., eNB) of a terrestrial wireless communication subscriber network determines whether a drone-coupled user equipment (UE) is engaged in a flying state based upon one or more wireless signals transmitted by the drone-coupled UE. The determination can occur in a variety of ways, such as based on a message from the drone-coupled UE itself (e.g., an express flying-state notification from the drone-coupled UE, a request particular to a flying state, a measurement reporting message, an identifier used by the drone-coupled UE, uplink signal strength measurement(s) or uplink AoA measurements, whether any intervening base station(s) were skipped over in conjunction with a handoff of the drone-coupled UE, etc.).

  • Publication number: 20180241509
    Abstract: A user equipment device (UE) may create efficient Packet Data Convergence Protocol (PDCP) status reports. The UE may receive PDCP packets from multiple radio access technologies (RATs) using the same bearer or same RAT using split bearers. The UE may identify packets that the UE should have received but did not, and may create a status report based on the sequence numbers (SNs) of the packets that the UE failed to receive or based on the SNs of the successful packets. The report may include the SNs of the packets, in addition to a bit-length of the SNs and/or a starting point of the SNs in the status report. Alternatively, the report may include the SN of a first packet that the UE failed to receive and offset values (relative to the SN of the first packet) for the other packets that the UE failed/succeed to receive.

  • Publication number: 20180159668
    Abstract: Certain embodiments described herein use variable RTT for HARQ operations. Uplink HARQ may include, for example, for a first synchronous HARQ process, a UE selects first downlink resources to monitor for first HARQ feedback based on the first HARQ RTT value, and generates a first HARQ retransmission for first uplink resources in response to the first HARQ feedback. For a second synchronous HARQ process, the UE select second downlink resources to monitor for second HARQ feedback based on the second HARQ RTT value, and generates a second HARQ retransmission for second uplink resources in response to the second HARQ feedback. In certain embodiments, a RAN node signals or indicates the variable RTT values to the UE.

  • Patent number: 9942944
    Abstract: Described herein are processes related to discovering and establishing suitable multi-hop communication paths for (endpoint) user equipments (UEs). A network-initiated discovery and path selection processes may utilize periodically transmitted reference signals along with optional assistance information. A network node, such an eNodeB, and other relaying-capable nodes, such as relay UEs, may transmit periodic reference signals. Based on these transmitted reference signals and optional assistance information, the relay UEs and/or an endpoint node (e.g., the eNodeB or the endpoint UE) may make a selection decision for previous hop paths for communication. The endpoint UE or the eNodeB may make the selection decision for the end-to-end path in order to provide coverage extension for the end UE using multi-hop transmission paths.

  • Patent number: 9801228
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are methods, apparatuses, and systems for utilizing lightweight communication protocols between different network components. A messaging process is utilized which includes a random access procedure for a user equipment (UE) and an eNodeB, and a messaging sequence comprising a reduced number of messages (compared to a legacy Radio Resource Control (RRC) Connection messaging sequence) exchanged between different nodes of the network to establish a connection. These messages can be generated using any combination of pre-configured or pre-determined data specific to either the UE or to lightweight communication protocols.

  • Publication number: 20170251516
    Abstract: Technology for switching a user equipment (UE) from a lightweight radio resource control (RRC) connection to a legacy RRC connection is disclosed. A radio base station can determine that the UE is to switch from the lightweight RRC connection with the radio base station to the legacy RRC connection with the radio base station, wherein the UE is configured to perform small data transmissions when the lightweight RRC connection is established for the UE. The radio base station can instruct the UE to perform a service request procedure in order for the UE to transition from the lightweight RRC connection to the legacy RRC connection. The radio base station can receive a service request message from the UE when the service request procedure is initiated at the UE, wherein the radio base station is configured to facilitate switching the UE from the lightweight RRC connection to the legacy RRC connection.
