    Abstract: A set of neighboring base stations coordinate to simultaneously transmit a common resynchronization signal via a Common Synchronization Channel (CSCH). The common resynchronization signal is transmitted from the base stations utilizing a common sequence and a common set of time/frequency resources. A user equipment (UE) device receives the common resynchronization signals from a plurality of the base stations and combines the received common resynchronization signals. In some examples, the UE device coherently combines the received common resynchronization signals. Once the received signal strength of the combined received common resynchronization signals exceeds a threshold level, the UE device utilizes the combined received common resynchronization signals to obtain resynchronization.

  • Patent number: 11349745
    Abstract: Latency of a gateway system that connects to downstream services can be measured using an external computer system. The gateway may route component requests to various downstream services in order to service a main request, and be part of an overall service where low latency is important. It may be desirable for the gateway system to have as little added latency as possible. Benchmarking the gateway by performing latency measurements can give an indication of how the gateway is performing. If software on the gateway changes, re-benchmarking the gateway can reveal if problematic code was introduced. A measurement system can employ a lightweight process so that minimal additional latency is incurred by the measuring process. Memory can be allocated as to avoid a garbage collection process so that the latency measurement is unaffected when garbage collection occurs, for example, and multiple buffers can measure latency for different request types.

    Abstract: Hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) acknowledgement (ACK) feedback enhancements are disclosed for new radio (NR) unlicensed (NR-U). In the downlink control channel, two sets of identifiers (IDs) may be explicitly or implicitly signaled. The two IDs identify a current set ID and an additional set ID. Where the two IDs match, then the ACK feedback transmitted in the current ACK message will reflect the current transmissions. Otherwise, where the two IDs are different, the additional set ID identifies any previous or different ACK information that should be transmitted for prior transmissions.

  • Patent number: 11350348
    Abstract: Technology for improving the selection, transfer, and storage of user equipment (UE) radio capability information is disclosed. A cellular mobile network can be configured to identify radio-access-technology (RAT)-specific radio-capability information relating to RATs supported in the cellular mobile network and communicate the RAT-specific radio-capability information to a UE. The UE can use the RAT-specific radio-capability information to help determine which UE radio capability information to send to the network. In addition, the UE may store a list of supported frequency bands and/or supported frequency-band combinations (LOSB) indexed by network operators and use the list to help determine which UE radio capability information to send to the network. A network node may also selectively remove unnecessary information from UE radio capability information before storing the UE radio capability information at a mobility management entity (MME).
