  • Patent number: 10288741
    Abstract: The present application discloses detecting manipulation of GNSS signals using a second time source. If two or more GNSS constellation signals are being detected, the phase error between the GNSS constellation signals may be monitored. When the phase error drifts, then manipulation is determined. The integrity of a GNSS constellation signal may be monitored using an internal time source such as a crystal oscillator by monitoring a slope of the free running counter at the detected rising edges of a pulse-per-second signal from the GNSS constellation. If more than two GNSS constellations are monitored, a voting scheme may be used to determine the manipulated GNSS constellation.

The base station receives a signal from the user equipment on an uplink (UL) component carrier and measures the arrival time of the signal. A timing correction of the UL transmission timing based on the arrival time of the signal is determined. Thereupon the base station determines for which of the uplink component carriers used by the user equipment the timing correction is valid. The timing correction and the validity information is sent to the user equipment. The user equipment adjusts the UL transmission timing for each UL component carrier the timing correction is valid for.

    Abstract: Techniques are described for wireless communication. One method for wireless communication at a base station includes contending for access to a shared channel of a shared radio frequency spectrum band, and multiplexing first component carrier (CC) communication windows and second CC communication windows in the shared channel. A duration of orthogonal frequency domain multiplexed (OFDM) symbols of the first CC communication windows may be different from a duration of OFDM symbols of the second CC communication windows, and the multiplexing may occur on the shared channel upon winning contention for access to the shared channel. One method for wireless communication at a user equipment (UE) includes monitoring a shared channel of a shared radio frequency spectrum band for a first CC Listen Before Talk (LBT) frame, and receiving, in a second CC preamble, an indication of the first CC LBT frame.

  • Patent number: 10271251
    Abstract: A network device and UE determine that the UE is handed over from a first network device to a second network device, and in a handover process, the first network device or the second network device sends a feedback control message to the UE to query for a quantity of fountain codes that are needed to continue to send, and the second network device continues to perform encoding according to the quantity of fountain codes that are needed to continue to send, and sends encoded data to the UE. In an uplink process, the UE sends a feedback control to the second network device and obtains a quantity of data packets that are needed to continue to encode, and sends a first data packet to the second network device. A receive end performs decoding according to the received first data packet to obtain an original data packet.

  • Patent number: 10271184
    Abstract: An objective of the present invention is to provide a method and apparatus of delivering the trigger report for MTC. According to a trigger message originated from an originator, a UE generates trigger response information corresponding to the trigger message; the UE sends a trigger report message containing the trigger response information to a first NE; the first NE extracts the trigger response information from the trigger report message and sends the trigger response information to the originator. In the prior art, the delivery report can only provide information about whether the trigger data is delivered. According to the present invention, the delivery report may also provide information on the MTC application layer, for example, even if the trigger result cannot be sent back immediately, the delivery report may can also include whether the payload data is accepted by the MTC application receives the payload data.

  • Patent number: 10264498
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses for redirecting a wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) to a dedicated core network (CN) node are described. An apparatus is configured to initiate a Service Request with a non-dedicated network node. The apparatus is configured to receive a special identifier in response to the Service Request, which indicates the apparatus should be redirected to a dedicated CN node based on subscription information. Radio access network resources associated with the apparatus may be released and the apparatus may then perform a tracking area update (TAU) request which is then forwarded to the dedicated CN node.

  • Patent number: 10264622
    Abstract: A base station receives from a first core network entity, packet(s) for a wireless device in an RRC inactive state. The base station initiates a RAN paging procedure comprising sending RAN paging message(s) to second base station(s). The RAN paging message(s) comprises a first identifier of the wireless device. The base station determines a failure of the RAN paging procedure in response to not receiving a response of the RAN paging message(s). The base station sends a first message to a second core network entity in response to the failure of the RAN paging procedure. The base station receives a second message from the second core network entity in response to the first message. The second message comprises a tunnel endpoint identifier of a third base station for forwarding the packet(s). The base station sends to the third base station, the packet(s) based on the tunnel endpoint identifier.

  • Patent number: 10264525
    Abstract: Systems and methods for performing energy efficient communication. A transceiver for use in a point-to-point packet-based communication link with packet erasures is described. The transceiver can include a data source to provide bits of data for transmission to a remote device. The transceiver can map the bits of data to symbols in a constellation according to a modulation scheme and can provide the symbols on one or more subcarriers. The transceiver can include co-located orthogonally polarized antenna elements or spatially separated antenna elements or both. The symbols can be transmitted in packets via one or more of the antenna elements. The transceiver can determine a metric of average transmit energy per bit successfully decoded, and not erased, at the remote device and can adjust transmission powers at the antenna elements to reduce the average transmit energy per successfully decoded and unerased bit.
