  • Patent number: 10327186
    Abstract: A technique for providing per station control of multiple stations in a wireless network across multiple access points. A look-up table that assigns a station connected to the access point and at least one communication parameter to each of a plurality of persistent, uniquely-assigned BSSIDs (Basic Service Set Identifiers) is stored. An access point responds to messages addressed one of the plurality of persistent, uniquely-assigned BSSIDs and ignores messages addressed to other BSSIDs. Persistence of the BSSID allows the controller to maintain individual control over each station after moving to a second access point of the plurality of access points. A frame comprising the plurality of BSSIDs corresponding to each connected station aggregated into the frame is generated. The frame is transmitted to the plurality of stations.

A session creation module (SCM) creates a bi-directional parent session (Sp), between first and second session partners, by: allocating co-shared network resources over a first network hop, and allocating network resources over a second network hop. The SCM further creates a bi-directional derivative session (Sd) between the first session partner and a third session partner, by: allocating network resources to the Sd over a third network hop, and not allocating specifically for the Sd all the network resources required for the Sd over the first network hop. And the network is able to switch between the Sp and the Sd within a duration that is less than half the duration required to create the Sd.

The extracted GI is adjusted by a data position adjusting part such that its rear end coincides with the read end of the extracted data portion. A combining part combines the extracted data portion with the GI the data position of which has been adjusted. The combined signal is then supplied to a frequency axis equalizing part, which equalizes the signal distortions of the combined signal on the frequency axis.

  • Patent number: 9479940
    Abstract: Systems and methods presented herein provide for capacity sharing between wireless systems. In one embodiment, a scheduler is operable with a plurality of wireless base stations. Each base station is operable to digitize a frequency spectrum of radio communications from a plurality of user equipment (UEs). The scheduler communicatively couples to first and second Mobile Central Offices (MCOs). The scheduler processes the digitized frequency spectrums of the base stations, extracts radio communications of a first of the UEs from the digitized frequency spectrums of one or more of the base stations coupled to the first MCO, determines that a capacity of the first MCO has been exceeded, determines that a capacity of the second MCO is available, acquires at least a portion of the capacity of the second MCO, and handles a call of the first UE through the capacity acquired from the second MCO.

  • Patent number: 9462564
    Abstract: An assignment of an uplink resource on which to send an uplink synchronization signal is transmitted to a user equipment. The user equipment sends on the uplink resource an uplink synchronization signal. From the uplink synchronization signal is determined a timing advance for the user equipment. Various indications are used to indicate to the user equipment that the assignment of uplink resources is for the purpose of sending its synchronization signal, such as expiration of its timing advance timer, a field in the allocation table that assigns the uplink resources, or explicit signaling from the network. Methods, devices, and computer program products are detailed for both network and user equipment embodiments.

  • Patent number: 9455777
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices are described for providing network access services to mobile users via multi-user network access terminals over a multi-beam satellite system. Quality-of-service (QoS) is controlled for the mobile devices at a per-user level according to user-specific traffic policies Mobile users may be provisioned on the satellite system according to a set of traffic policies based on their service level agreement (SLA). System resources of the satellite may be allocated to mobile users based on the demand of each mobile user and the set of traffic polices associated with each mobile user, regardless of which multi-user network access terminal is used to access the system. Dynamic multiplexing of traffic from fixed terminals and mobile users on the same satellite beam can take advantage of statistical multiplexing of large numbers of users and on different usage patterns between fixed terminals and mobile users.

  • Patent number: 9426662
    Abstract: Systems and methods presented herein provide for capacity sharing between wireless systems. One wireless telecommunications system includes a plurality of base stations and a Mobile Central Office (MCO) communicatively coupled to each of the base stations. Each base station is operable to handle a session from a wireless device and to handoff the session to another of the base stations when the wireless device moves into a range of the other wireless base station. The MCO is operable to detect capacity on a first of the base stations, to request capacity from another wireless system in response to detecting the capacity on the first base station, to acquire at least a portion of the requested capacity from the other wireless system, and to direct the wireless device to communicate via the capacity acquired from the other wireless system.

  • Patent number: 9397816
    Abstract: Within a wireless network, feedback information from user equipment (UE) to a control node (eNodeB) is necessary to support various functions. A UE receives an allocation from the eNodeB comprising a plurality of periodic transmission instances for a channel quality indicator (CQI) and a schedule comprising a plurality of periodic transmission instances for a rank indicator (RI), wherein the CQI comprises RI and other CQI fields. The UE then transmits an RI without transmitting the other CQI fields in a transmission instance allocated for both RI and other CQI fields.

  • Patent number: 9386578
    Abstract: Disclosed herein are methods and systems for node operation according to network-wide resource-allocation schedules. One embodiment takes the form of a method carried out by a given node within an ad-hoc wireless network, which includes a controller node for a current time period. The method includes obtaining one or more air-interface resource requests for the current time period, where each obtained resource request indicates a requesting node and a requested resource. The method further includes using a network-standard algorithm for deriving a network-wide resource-allocation schedule for the current time period based at least in part on the obtained resource requests. The method further includes verifying the derived resource-allocation schedule based at least in part on a verification value derived by the controller node from the network-wide resource-allocation schedule using a network-standard verification function.

  • Patent number: 9319206
    Abstract: A method of signalling resource allocation data in a communication system which uses a plurality of sub-carriers arranged in a sequence of chunks. An allocation of the sub-carriers for each of a plurality of user devices is received. The received allocations are processed to determine, for each user device, data identifying a start chunk and an end chunk within the sequence of chunks, which depend upon the sub-carriers allocated to the user device. Different resource allocation data is generated for each of the user devices using a predetermined mapping which relates the data identifying the corresponding start chunk and end chunk determined by the processing step to resource allocation data comprising a unique value. The respective resource allocation data is signaled to each of the plurality of user devices.
