  • Patent number: 11317413
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A user equipment (UE) may receive an indication of a mode for processing a transport block from a base station. The UE may receive a transport block from the base station. In some examples, the transport block may include one or more code blocks in a first code block group and one or more code blocks in a second code block group and may decode the one or more code blocks in the first code block group of the transport block. In some examples, the UE may deliver, to the medium access control (MAC) layer of the UE and based on the mode for processing the transport block, the one or more decoded code blocks in the first code block group before completing the decoding of the second code block group.

    Abstract: For providing data connectivity with various types of continuity, methods, apparatus, and systems are disclosed. One apparatus includes a processor and a transceiver that communicates with a mobile communication network. The processor receives a request to establish a data session, identifies a request characteristic corresponding to the request, and selects a data session continuity type by applying a continuity selection policy to the identified request characteristic. If the selected continuity type matches the data session continuity type of a first existing PDU Session, then the processor routes traffic of the data session through a first existing PDU Session. Otherwise, if the selected continuity type does not match the data session continuity type of any existing PDU Session, then the processor establishes a first data connection having the selected data session continuity type.

  • Patent number: 9973404
    Abstract: Systems and methods are contemplated for reconfiguration of one or more MAC instances while the WTRU is operating using dual- or multi-MAC instance connectivity. For example, upon reception of RRC reconfiguration information that modifies one or more secondary MAC instances, the WTRU may transmit a reconfiguration complete message to a Macro eNB (MeNB) and may synchronize to small-cell or secondary eNB (SeNB), for example if triggered by one or more of an RRC flag, a physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) order (MeNB/SeNB), MAC activation information, etc. For example, the WTRU may synchronize to the SeNB for specific type(s) of RRC reconfigurations, but not other type(s) of RRC reconfigurations. Although examples may be described in terms of dual connectivity, the WTRU may establish connectivity and perform mobility procedures with more than two radio access network (RAN) nodes (e.g., eNBs), and the embodiments described may be equally applicable to those scenarios.

    Abstract: A limited input device, such as a camera, is authenticated based on a request received from an authenticated application. The application can request an application server to provide the application with a one-time authorization code. The request includes the device identifier associated with the camera. The server stores an association between the one-time authorization code and the device identifier of the camera, and provides the application with the one-time authorization code. The application provides the camera with the one-time authorization code. The camera transmits a request for an access token to the server, the request for the access token including the one-time authorization code and the device identifier associated with the camera. The server verifies the device identifier associated with the camera with that associated with the one-time authorization code, and upon a positive verification authenticates the camera by providing the camera with the access token.

  • Patent number: 9743443
    Abstract: The present inventions, in one aspect, are directed to systems and circuitry for and/or methods of establishing communication having one or more pairing facilitator-intermediary devices (for example, a network connected server) to enable or facilitate pairing and/or registering at least two devices (e.g., (i) a portable biometric monitoring device and (ii) a smartphone, laptop and/or tablet) to, for example, recognize, interact and/or enable interoperability between such devices. The pairing facilitator-intermediary device may responsively communicates information to one or more of the devices (to be paired or registered) which, in response, enable or facilitate such devices to pair or register. The present inventions may be advantageous where one or both of the devices to be paired or registered is/are not configured (e.g., include a user interface or certain communication circuitry that is configured or includes functionality) to pair devices without use of a facilitator-intermediary device.

  • Patent number: 9686277
    Abstract: A mobile information handling system (IHS) includes an application (app) that may include a unique-identification tool and a device capability determination tool. The unique-identification tool may generate a signature string that is unique to the mobile IHS. The device capability determination tool may determine the hardware capability of the mobile IHS, the network capability of the mobile IHS and the capability of a network between the mobile IHS and a server IHS, and generate a device determination therefrom. The app may transmit the signature string and the device determination to a server IHS. In response to the signature string and device determination that the server IHS receives, the server IHS may generate and transmit a corresponding response containing specific data to the mobile IHS. The app may output the specific data by displaying the specific data on a display of the mobile IHS.

  • Patent number: 9554322
    Abstract: A transmission control method for a vehicular ad hoc network system having a plurality of mobile nodes is provided. The mobile nodes include a source node, a destination node, and a plurality of relay nodes. The source node transmits a data packet to the destination node through the relay nodes. The method includes each mobile node capturing mobility information being periodically broadcasted from neighboring mobile nodes to correspondingly update the connection state table thereof, wherein the connection state table records the coverage remaining time between the mobile node and neighboring mobile nodes; when any of relay nodes determines that the coverage remaining time between the relay node and the subsequent mobile node is less than a predefined threshold, the relay node transforms into a proxy node, stores the data packet, and establishes a reliable sub-connection between the proxy node and a next proxy node or the destination node.
