  • Patent number: 11419019
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. In some systems, a user equipment (UE) may perform a dual active link handover procedure from a source base station to a target base station. During the dual active link handover procedure, the UE may have connections to both of the base stations concurrently. In such cases, transmission opportunities for communicating with the base stations may conflict. To handle conflicting transmission opportunities, the UE may drop a monitoring occasion or a packet reception for a base station based on prioritization rules. In some cases, to mitigate packet losses, the base station may configure re-transmissions or slot aggregation to provide the UE with additional opportunities to receive a packet. Additionally or alternatively, the UE may transmit a notification message to a base station indicating dropped monitoring occasions or packets.

  • Patent number: 11412501
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A base station and a user equipment (UE) with a defined capability may communicate using beamformed wireless communications. The defined capability may be that the UE may support fewer activated physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH) transmission configuration indicator (TCI) states than activated control resource set (CORESET) TCI states. The defined capability UE and the base station may implement techniques to determine which TCI state to use when the UE supports fewer activated PDSCH TCI states than activated CORESET TCI states. The UE may use an activated PDSCH TCI state selected by a media access control (MAC) control element (CE), an activated TCI state of a specific CORESET, a TCI indicated in scheduling downlink control information, or an activated PDSCH TCI state selected by a radio resource control (RRC) message.
