  • Publication number: 20210022073
    Abstract: Techniques for selecting between various dual connectivity and single connectivity configurations in wireless networks are discussed herein. Wireless networks may include a master base station, such as a Long-Term Evolution (LTE) base station, that may operate in conjunction with a secondary base station, such as a New Radio (NR) base station, to provide dual connectivity or single connectivity to user equipment (UE) operating in that environment. The type of connectivity may be selected according to various characteristics of available radio links and/or various characteristics of devices connecting to the available radio links. In some examples, the type of connectivity may be selected to reduce intermodulation distortion (IMD) or obviate IMD by selecting a connectivity type to avoid scenarios where IMD may be present.

  • Patent number: 10849180
    Abstract: Techniques for dynamically allocating frequency resources in accordance with wireless access technologies are discussed herein. For example, a base station can determine whether user equipment (UE) requesting communications at the base station are configured to operate in accordance with 4th Generation (5G) radio access technologies and/or in accordance with 5th Generation (5G) radio access technologies. Based on the number of 5G UEs and 4G UEs, a first portion of a frequency resource can be allocated to 5G and a second portion of the frequency resource can be allocated to 4G. In some examples, a first allocation strategy for a first frequency resource (e.g., Band 71) can be used to generate a second allocation strategy for a partially overlapping second frequency resource (e.g., Band 41).

  • Publication number: 20200351799
    Abstract: Systems and methods for managing multiple network connections for user equipment (UE) are disclosed. The systems and methods can monitor power headroom (PHR) reports on one or more networks. When the PHR report for a UE approaches a first predetermined level on a first network, the system can evaluate the UE for a predetermined amount of time. If during the predetermined amount of time, the PHR on the first network increases to a second predetermined level—i.e., to a level where the transmission power used by the UE is closer to a maximum transmission power that the UE can provide—the UE can be instructed to disconnect from the network. This can enable the UE to disconnect in a controlled manner rather than simply letting the connection “drop” due to radio link failure.

  • Patent number: 10827435
    Abstract: Techniques for dynamically determining coverage area and data throughput in a heterogeneous network are discussed herein. In some examples, a base station can use frequency resources from a Citizens Broadband Radio Service band provided that such use does not cause harmful interference for incumbent users. For example, to avoid interfering with an incumbent device while maintaining transmission, an algorithm may be deployed to dynamically determine data throughput for the base station and connected user equipment based on interference level and traffic type. The base station can receive interference information with uplink feedback from the user equipment. Interference information can also be used to configure the base station to dynamically adjust its data coverage area, for example, by varying a transmission power. As the conditions at a base station change over time (e.g., hourly, daily, weekly, etc.), data coverage area can be reconfigured at the base station.

  • Publication number: 20200344839
    Abstract: Techniques for presenting a symbol on a display of a wireless device indicative of wireless resources based on network states and device states are discussed herein. For example, the network state may indicate whether the wireless device is operating in a cellular network that has areas of dual signal coverage. A device state may include whether the device is actively communicating via a connection or is idle. The techniques may further determine a frequency of wireless resources associated with the dual connectivity environment. A network identifier can be presented via a display of the wireless device. Network identifiers might include, for example, symbols that indicate 3G, 4G, LTE, 5G, dual connectivity, and so forth, corresponding to different wireless network standards and/or connections.

  • Publication number: 20200314873
    Abstract: Network scheduling in unlicensed spectrums is described. A scheduler can assess, at a first time, first conditions of an unlicensed spectrum, such as Long-Term Evolution unlicensed spectrum. Based at least partly on the first conditions, the scheduler can determine a schedule for transmitting data via the unlicensed spectrum. The scheduler can, for a first period of time, facilitate transmission of data between mobile devices that are communicatively coupled to the communication tower based at least partly on the schedule. At a second time after the first time, the scheduler can assess second conditions of the unlicensed spectrum and update the schedule based at least partly on the second conditions to generate an updated schedule. For a second period of time, the scheduler can facilitate transmission of data between the mobile devices based at least in part on the updated schedule.
