  • Patent number: 10743300
    Abstract: Provided are a base station, whereby the erroneous detection of control information can be reduced, thereby preventing the degradation of the system throughput. A base station maps a downstream allocation control information unit, which is addressed to a terminal, to a first resource region, which can be used for any of a downstream control channel region and a downstream data channel region, or to a second resource region, which can be used only for the downstream control channel, so as to transmit the downstream allocation control information unit. In the base station, a control unit establishes a scale of the PDCCH region, and a transmission region establishing unit establishes, on the basis of a scale value established by the control unit, a mapping region to which the DCI is mapped within the R-PDCCH region and the PDCCH region.

  • Patent number: 10622715
    Abstract: There is provided mechanisms for beam forming using an antenna array comprising dual polarized elements. A method comprises generating one or two beam ports, wherein the one or two beam ports are defined by combining at least two non-overlapping subarrays. Each subarray has two subarray ports, the two subarray ports having identical power patterns and mutually orthogonal polarization. The at least two non-overlapping subarrays are combined via expansion weights. The expansion weights map the one or two beam ports to subarray ports such that the one or two beam ports have the same power pattern as the subarrays. At least some of the expansion weights have identical non-zero magnitude and are related in phase to form a transmission lobe. The method comprises transmitting signals using said one or two beam ports.

  • Patent number: 10616743
    Abstract: A first device may establish, with a second device, a short-range wireless communications link. The first device may determine a time interval between each of a set of packets to be transmitted over a short-range wireless communications link with a second device. The first device may encode data with a bitrate that is based on the time interval. The first device may packetize the encoded data in the set of packets. The first device may transmit the set of packets to the second device or the short-range wireless communications link, and each of the set of packets may be separated by the time interval when transmitted.

    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure provide hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) techniques for enhanced machine type communication (eMTC). In one aspect, a method is provided which may be performed by a wireless device such as a user equipment (UE) for determining a HARQ ID. The method generally includes determining a HARQ ID based, at least in part, on a coverage enhancement (CE) level, and performing a HARQ process timeline based, at least in part, on the determined HARQ ID. Another method is provided for determining a subframe to transmit feedback. The method generally includes determining at least one subframe to transmit a physical uplink control channel (PUCCH) to acknowledge one or more downlink transmissions based, at least in part, on availability of uplink subframes following one or more downlink subframes carrying the downlink transmissions to be acknowledged and transmitting the PUCCH in the determined at least one subframe.
