  • Patent number: 10149229
    Abstract: Techniques described herein may allow for the selective enabling and/or disabling of shared access points (“SAPs”). The selective enabling and/or disabling may occur based on the analysis of key performance indicators (“KPIs”) associated with the SAPs. The selective enabling and/or disabling may cause the SAPs to cease (or continue) broadcasting their availability for User Equipment (“UEs”) of a particular wireless provider, decline (or accept) bearer requests for UEs of the particular wireless provider, or terminate existing connections with UEs of the particular wireless provider. The selective enabling and/or disabling may be performed for certain applications or Quality of Service (“QoS”) levels. The selective enabling and/or disabling may be performed proactively (e.g., without necessarily determining that the performance for a given SAP has not met a threshold performance), based on historical trends.

  • Patent number: 10142251
    Abstract: A method of control Maximum Transmission Unit (MTU) reporting and discovery using AT commands is proposed. In communications networks, the MTU of a communication protocol of a layer is the size (in bytes or octets) of the largest protocol data unit that the layer can pass onwards. In an IP network, IP packets may be fragmented if the supported MTU size is smaller than the packet length. In accordance with one novel aspect, the packet data protocol (PDP) context of a packet data network (PDN) connection comprises MTU information. By introducing MTU information to the PDP contexts, TE can use AT commands to query MTU parameters from the network and thereby avoid fragmentation.

In particular, the present invention includes the feature of alternately allocating resources for D2D communication and resources for cellular communication, or allocating resources of a D2D link to not be adjacent to each other. In addition, the present invention prevents interference with the cellular communication and interference with other D2D links by allocating a partial area of the resources allocated for the D2D communication to an area for transmitting a D2D uplink symbol to an eNB, or by adding a GP symbol to a partial area of the resources for the D2D communication. Furthermore, in the case of applying a TDD scheme, the present invention prevents interference with symbols for performing the cellular communication by defining a partial section of a special subframe as a section for transmitting the D2D uplink symbol, or by reflecting a time delay of N OFDM symbol durations.

  • Patent number: 10136396
    Abstract: Aspects of the subject disclosure may include, for example, a system that obtains uplink parameters associated with different sectors of a wireless network where the uplink parameters are associated with uplink transmissions of a first end user device. The system can determine a differential path loss for the first end user device based on the uplink parameters where the differential path loss is between the different sectors of the wireless network. The system, responsive to a determination that the differential path loss does not satisfy a differential path loss threshold, can determine a restriction for utilization of a particular frequency and power level over a particular time period, where the determination that the differential path loss does not satisfy the differential path loss threshold can be performed without utilizing channel quality data from the first end user device. Other embodiments are disclosed.

  • Patent number: 10135509
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable media for dynamically optimizing the use of full-power broadcast beamforming within a wireless communication network are provided herein. Though full-power broadcast beamforming may result in increased interference and decrease throughput, the increased coverage area provided by full-power broadcast beamforming is favored under certain conditions, including the locations of user devices within a network cell. Accordingly, location data may be received from user devices within a network cell utilizing a plurality of beams, and the locations of each of the user devices may be used to determine whether to enable full-power broadcast beamforming where each beam within plurality of beams is at a maximum signal strength. Upon determining to enable full-power broadcast beamforming, a signal weight for one or more of the beams may be adjusted to full power.

  • Patent number: 10136328
    Abstract: A method and an apparatus for activating and deactivating secondary cells in a carrier aggregation environment are provided. In one embodiment, a Medium Access Control (MAC) Control Element (CE) command is received from a base station for activating/deactivating a secondary cell associated with a User Equipment (UE). The secondary cell configured for the UE is activated/deactivated based on the MAC CE command. Further, a first uplink grant is received from the base station upon activation/deactivation of the secondary cell. Accordingly, quality information (e.g., channel quality information, sounding reference signal information, and the like) associated with the cell(s) is transmitted to the base station in the received first uplink grant over a physical uplink shared channel. Furthermore, a hybrid automatic repeat request entity associated with the secondary cell is reset.

    Abstract: Methods, apparatuses, and systems are described related to retrieving data from a wireless local area network (WLAN) access point (AP). In embodiments, an element manager may include an integration reference point (IRP) agent to receive data from the WLAN AP in the first format. Mapping circuitry of the element manager may convert the data from the first format to a second format to be used by an IRP manager that manages a Long Term Evolution Advance (LTE-A) network. The IRP agent may send the data to the IRP manager in the second format. The data may include, for example, performance monitoring data such as a value of one or more counters and/or a status of one or more alarms maintained by the WLAN AP. Accordingly, one or more components of the LTE-A network may monitor the performance of the WLAN AP.
