  • Publication number: 20210092003
    Abstract: Certain aspects of the present disclosure provide techniques for beam failure detection and recovery. A method that may be performed by a user equipment (UE) includes monitoring one or more first reference signals to detect a beam failure for one or more first control resource sets (CORESETs), transmitting an indication of the beam failure, and receiving a beam failure response after the transmission of the indication of the beam failure, wherein the monitoring of the one or more first reference signals for the detection of the beam failure stops in response to the reception of the beam failure response. The UE may then receive a configuration message after the reception of the beam failure response, and monitor, in response to the reception of the configuration message, one or more second reference signals to detect another beam failure for one or more second CORESETs.

  • 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: 20210014785
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A user equipment (UE) may identify a set of base stations that are part of a synchronization group, where at least two of the base stations in the set of base stations operate on different frequencies. In some cases, the UE may identify the set of base stations based on an indication transmitted by a serving base station for the UE. Additionally, once the synchronization group is identified, the UE may schedule synchronization signals together from the set of base stations. For example, after identifying the set of base stations, the UE may identify a measurement timing window associated with the synchronization group and measure a respective synchronization signal for each base station within the measurement timing window. Accordingly, the UE may then transmit a measurement report to the serving base station that includes the synchronization signal measurements.

  • 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.

  • Patent number: 10624024
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. An exemplary method includes receiving a signal corresponding to a frequency band, scanning for communications activity within the frequency band, wherein scanning for communications activity within the frequency band comprises performing a correlation calculation on samples of the signal, and determining whether to attempt a connection establishment within the frequency band based at least in part on the correlation calculation on samples of the signal. When the scanning identifies an indication of activity, a scanning device may attempt to establish a connection with a base station within the frequency band. When the scanning identifies an indication of no activity, a scanning device may refrain from attempting to establish a connection with a base station within the frequency band, and may perform the correlation-enhanced frequency scanning on a different frequency band.

  • Patent number: 10499255
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure provide a plurality of discovery reference signal (DRS) search modes implemented by the user equipment (UE) during contention-based communication in an unlicensed spectrum. The plurality of DRS search modes may include a first DRS search mode (“Full search mode”), second DRS search mode (“Comb search mode”), and a third DRS search mode (“Thin search mode”). The DRS search modes may be selected by the UE based on the system requirements (e.g., tradeoffs between robustness and complexity against cycle cost). Features of the present disclosure further provide techniques for dynamically switching between the plurality of DRS search modes in order to minimize power consumption while reducing the number of cycles required to locate the DRS.
