  • Patent number: 10028330
    Abstract: An example method is disclosed that is implemented by a base station that supports a plurality of UEs configured to use DRX. The base station transmits respective individual scheduling assignments to each UE in a group of the UEs during an initial, on Duration portion of a DRX cycle, thereby preventing the group of UEs from immediately entering a DRX mode after the onDuration of the DRX cycle. For each UE in the group, the scheduling assignments schedule a respective first data transmission during the onDuration, and also schedule a respective second data transmission after the onDuration but within the DRX cycle. The base station transmits the scheduled first data transmissions during the onDuration of the DRX cycle, and transmits the scheduled second data transmissions after the onDuration but within the DRX cycle. For each UE in the group, its second data transmission includes more data than its first data transmission.

    Abstract: A plurality of terminal devices 3 are connected to a parent device 1 to measure analog voltages of the terminals. Reference voltages 6 and measurement voltages 7 each having a polarity reverse to that of clocks are sequentially switched to be connected at gaps of clocks supplied by the parent device 1. Thus, the reference voltages 6 and the measurement voltages 7 of the terminal devices 3 are directly connected. With this mechanism, measurement of analog measurement signals at multiple points can be performed by use of a pair of electric wires, in which errors due to voltage drops of the measurement voltages 7 over the transmission line 2 are corrected with measurements of the reference voltages 6 whose voltage is known in advance so that precise analog measurements can be performed.

  • Patent number: 10027423
    Abstract: An adaptive demapper adaptively demaps an input symbol. An input symbol is received and demapped in a hard-output demapper to generate a current detected symbol corresponding to a constellation point on a current constellation closest to the input symbol. A corrected inverse of a current noise power estimate is determined by updating a previous noise power estimate based on a difference between the input symbol and the current detected symbol. In a soft-output demapper, a log likelihood ratio corresponding to the current detected symbol is determined based on the corrected inverse of the current noise power estimate. The constellation point in the current constellation corresponding to the current detected symbol is then updated to generate an updated constellation based on a difference between the constellation point and the received input symbol.

  • Patent number: 10015174
    Abstract: Various aspects provide for receiving identity information from a station (STA) that identifies the STA as a sensor-type STA, determining whether communication attributes of the STA correlates with communication attributes expected for a sensor-type STA, and determining that the identity information received from the STA is false when the one or more communication attributes of the STA is uncorrelated with the one or more communication attributes expected for a sensor-type STA. Additional aspects provide for initiating one or more remedial actions upon determining that the identity information is false. The communication attributes may pertain to packet size, inter-arrival time, and/or inter-arrival time variance. The remedial actions may include blocking a future communication with the STA, communicating a warning message to the STA, and/or assigning the STA to a particular access window. Communications by the STA may comply with aspects of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.11ah.

  • Patent number: 10015691
    Abstract: Techniques are provided for transmitting reference signals and CSI reports within a wireless communications system using variable length downlink or uplink transmission time intervals (TTIs). CSI reference signals and CSI reports may be transmitted at times that accommodate the variable length TTIs. A UE may receive signaling that indicates when a CSI reference signal is to be transmitted, and when a CSI report is to be transmitted to a base station. CSI reporting may be performed periodically using a physical uplink control channel (PUCCH) in designated uplink symbols, may be aperiodic using a physical uplink shared channel (PUSCH), or a combination thereof. A UE may receive signaling indicating periodic CSI reporting, aperiodic CSI reporting, or both. Such signaling may be received, for example, via radio resource control (RRC) signaling or within a downlink or uplink grant.
