  • Patent number: 10230517
    Abstract: A method of wireless communication at a serving base station identifies a potential interference condition based on an uplink/downlink configuration mismatch. The method includes signaling, to a neighbor base station, to restrict transmissions based on the identified potential interference condition. The transmissions may be restricted by beamforming the transmissions into a different direction and/or blocking transmissions on a frequency. The signaling prompts the neighbor base station to restrict downlink transmissions that will potentially interfere with uplink control channel transmissions received at the serving base station, or to restrict uplink transmissions, intended for the neighbor base station, that will potentially interfere with downlink control channel transmissions from the serving base station.

  • Patent number: 10230605
    Abstract: The present technology is directed to a scalable solution for end-to-end performance delay measurement for Segment Routing Policies on both SR-MPLS and SRv6 data planes. The scalability of the solution stems from the use of distributed PM sessions along SR Policy ECMP paths. This is achieved by dividing the SR policy into smaller sections comprised of SPT trees or sub-paths, each of which is associated with a Root-Node. Downstream SID List TLVs may be used in Probe query messages for signaling SPT information to the Root-Nodes Alternatively, this SPT signaling may be accomplished by using a centralized controller. Root-Nodes are responsible for dynamically creating PM sessions and measuring delay metrics for their associated SPT tree section. The root-nodes then send the delay metrics for their local section to an ingress PE node or to a centralized controller using delay metric TLV field of the response message.

  • Patent number: 10218986
    Abstract: A video delivery system alters information (such as time stamp information) associated with one or more frames of a first compressed video file to allow for accurate rendering of frames within the first compressed video file prior to a transition to a second compressed video file. For example, a time stamp of a particular frame of a compressed video file is altered prior to transmission of the particular frame by a video transmission system such that the altered time stamp indicates a time that has already passed. The particular frame can be decoded by a display system that receives the particular frame so that information included in the particular frame can be used in rendering of subsequently received frames. The display system can bypass display of the particular frame due to the altered time stamp.

  • Patent number: 10218471
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A user equipment (UE) may support selection of positioning reference signal (PRS) occasions. For example, a UE may identify a first pair of PRS occasions for monitoring a PRS at a first frequency and a second pair of PRS occasions for monitoring a PRS at a second frequency and occurring after the first pair of PRS occasions. The UE may measure a first PRS of the first pair of PRS occasions at the first frequency, and then measure a first PRS of the second pair of PRS occasions at the second frequency. The UE may then measure a second PRS of the first pair of PRS occasions at the first frequency after measuring the first PRS of the second pair of PRS occasions at the second frequency.

  • Patent number: 10216590
    Abstract: A communication control device includes a determining unit, a request unit, a storage control unit, and a recovery unit. The determining unit determines, based on a requested data operation and a schema of a table that stores therein data to be operated by the data operation, any one of a first operation method of storing state information indicating a state of the data operation and a second operation method of avoiding storing the state information as a method for the data operation. The request unit requests server devices to execute the data operation. The storage control unit stores, when the first operation method is determined, the state information in a storage unit upon execution of the data operation. The recovery unit recovers, when a failure occurs upon the execution of the data operation, from the failure by a recovery method suited to the operation method determined by the determining unit.

  • Patent number: 10219275
    Abstract: Disclosed are a method and an apparatus for uplink transmission. A method for uplink transmission for a machine-type communication (MTC) terminal comprises: a step of transmitting first uplink (UL) information via a first UL channel in a first terminal-specific frequency band of a first subframe; and a step of transmitting second UL information via a second UL channel in a second terminal-specific frequency band of a second subframe subsequent to the first subframe. The first subframe and the second subframe each include a plurality of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) symbols. If the first terminal-specific frequency band and the second terminal-specific frequency band do not overlap one another, the second UL information may not be transmitted in a first OFDM symbol of the second subframe. Thus, a wireless resource can be efficiently utilized.

Some embodiments are structured to generate the ePHR using a type 2 report regardless of the uncertainty associated with the ePHR, while other embodiments generate the ePHR using a reference format. In some embodiments, a UE communicates a timing field with a UE capability communication indicating whether the UE meets timing requirements to avoid uncertainty in ePHR communications.
