  • Patent number: 11363566
    Abstract: Data is scrambled at a transmitter according to one of a number of predetermined scrambling sequences which are associated with a particular one of a number of predetermined transmit antenna diversity schemes (i.e., a specific number of transmit antenna ports). Received data is decoded using one or more of the known transmit antenna diversity schemes and the scrambled data is descrambled according to a corresponding descrambling sequence (related to the scrambling sequence). Based on the descrambled data, the receiver determines which transmit antenna diversity scheme (i.e., the number of antenna ports) is used by the transmitter. In one specific embodiment, CRC parity data is scrambled in the transmitter and the receiver descrambles the recovered CRC parity data according to a descrambling sequence, computes CRC parity data from the received data, and compares the descrambled CRC parity data to the newly computed CRC parity data.

  • Patent number: 11317251
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described to improve support for broadcast systems. In some wireless communications systems, such as broadcast systems for a multimedia broadcast/multicast service (MBMS), an inter-site distance between transmitters or between a transmitter and a receiver may be relatively large compared to an inter-site distance for other scenarios of a wireless communication system (for example, cellular data or talk scenarios). A transmitter in a broadcast system may adjust one or more characteristics of resources in a frame, such as the subframe structure, slot structure, or symbol structure, in carriers dedicated for MBMS resource transmissions. For instance, the transmitter may adjust durations of one or more symbols in a frame.

  • Patent number: 11290986
    Abstract: Backhaul resources may be allocated to different wireless communication links between different base stations, and local redistribution of resources among base stations may be utilized to account for variations in signal quality and/or variations in traffic experienced by different nodes of the backhaul network. A first access node function (ANF) may determine a need for additional backhaul resources, and may transmit a request message to one or more user equipment functions (UEFs) for additional backhaul resources. A UEF that receives the request message may forward the request to an associated second ANF. The second ANF, if it has backhaul resources available that the first ANF can use, may send a response to the first ANF, via the associated UEF, and the first ANF may use the additional resources that were originally allocated to the second ANF.

  • Patent number: 11284324
    Abstract: A Fifth Generation New Radio (5GNR) network serves User Equipment (UE) with low-latency Quality-of-Service (QoS). A source 5GNR node receives signaling from the UE and transfers the signaling to a network controller. The network controller processes the signaling to determine a low-latency QoS. A network gateway receives user data and transfers the user data to the source 5GNR node. The source 5GNR node wirelessly transfers the user data to the UE. Responsive to the low-latency QoS, the source 5GNR node transfers multicast signaling to the network controller when received signal strength at the UE reaches a multicast trigger. The network controller transfers multicast signaling to the network gateway. The network gateway multicasts the user data to the source 5GNR node and to neighbor 5GNR nodes.
