    Abstract: A technique is presented for correcting phase distortion in a digital wireless transmitter. The technique includes: receiving an RF signal in an analog domain by a digital-to-RF modulator; amplitude modulating, the RF signal in accordance with a digital input code; and introducing delay in a signal path traversed by the RF signal before the digital-to-RF modulator using a delay circuit. The duration of the delay depends upon the value of the digital input code and substantially cancels out the phase distortion introduced by the digital wireless transmitter.

  • Patent number: 10660085
    Abstract: Communicating wireless devices collaborate and utilize waveforms to enable secure channel estimation. To protect against a repetitive replay attack, some embodiments include Single Carrier Physical Layer (SC-PHY) waveforms and/or interpolated OFDM waveforms that do not include a repeatable or predictable structure. The waveforms are transmitted in ranging packet structures that are compatible with legacy 802.11 technologies that do not utilize secure channel estimation. The ranging packets are received in combination with the information previously exchanged to enable the receiving wireless system to securely determine a channel estimate (e.g., determine a channel estimate without an interloper transmission that is not an authentic first arrival path in a multi-path channel between the wireless systems). Thus, one or both of the wireless systems can estimate the distance between them (or range). Devices utilizing legacy 802.

  • Patent number: 10649067
    Abstract: A wideband simultaneous transmit and receive (STAR) subsystem for a radar or communications system including self-interference cancellation and external noise cancellation. The STAR subsystem includes a canceller circuit which digitally prepares a cancellation signal to cancel out leaked or reflected portions of the transmit signal and correlated noise in the receiver signal. The self-interference cancellation can be adaptively configured in a closed-loop mode, and operated open loop in real time to minimize bandwidth limitations and achieve wideband performance. The STAR subsystem also includes an external noise active canceller which greatly diminishes high-power external noise in the receiver signal. The external noise canceller digitally synthesizes a cancellation signal which dramatically improves the signal-to-noise ratio in the receiver. Together, the combined cancellation techniques prevent receiver saturation and preserve receiver sensitivity.

  • Patent number: 10200894
    Abstract: Interference management methods are proposed to facilitate multi-cell, multi-user millimeter wave cellular networks. One method includes a feedback approach in which a base station (BS) device collects information from mobile devices in the cell operated by the BS device and other BS devices in other cells. Each mobile device feeds back a best beams set and a worst interference beams set to its serving BS device and the information is shared amongst other BS devices in the network. According to the information, BS devices implement a beam selection criterion to select a beam for downlink transmission. To reduce feedback cost, another method leverages the channel reciprocity in time division duplexing to use the measured uplink power and interference information to select the narrow beam for downlink transmission. The BS device selects the narrow beam that establishes a reliable channel and reduces interference to mobile devices in neighboring cells.

  • Patent number: 10187478
    Abstract: The present disclosure discloses a method and network device for dynamic detection of inactive virtual private network clients. Specifically, a network device receives periodic messages from a first device at a first interval, and determines a timeout value for the first device based at least on the first interval, at which the periodic messages are received from the first device. Subsequent to determining the timeout value, the network device detects that a message has not been received from the first device for a period of time corresponding to the timeout value for the first device. The network device then terminates at least one connection with the first device responsive to determining that no message has been received from the first device for the period of time corresponding to the timeout value for the first device.
