  • Patent number: 11375570
    Abstract: A communication apparatus includes a transition unit and a control unit. In a case where a wireless communication path to each of a first base station and a second base station is established, the transition unit transitions from an RRC_CONNECTED state to an RRC_INACTIVE state compliant with a 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standard. In a case where the transition unit transitions to the RRC_INACTIVE state, the control unit performs control to selectively execute operating in a first mode for waiting for a notification signal from each of the first and second base stations or operating in a second mode for waiting for a notification signal from either the first base station or the second base station, based on a state of the communication apparatus.

  • Patent number: 11375521
    Abstract: When an Internet of things application server determines, based on a service requirement and a service scenario, to start coordinated radio resource scheduling on a terminal, the Internet of things application server sends a coordinated radio resource scheduling activation request to a radio transceiver node, to request the radio transceiver node to perform coordinated radio resource scheduling on the terminal based on a requirement of the Internet of things application server, and after receiving the request, the radio transceiver node allocates a radio resource to the terminal at a higher priority or higher efficiency. If the terminal does not need to apply for the radio resource, the radio transceiver node actively allocates the radio resource to the terminal in order to reduce a radio communication latency of the terminal and implement a low-latency communication requirement in a specific service scenario.

  • Patent number: 11356854
    Abstract: During handover of a radio terminal (1) from a first network to a second network, a target RAN node (3) is operates to: receive, from a core network (5), slice information about a network slice which is included in the second network and to which the radio terminal (1) is to be connected; create, upon receiving the slice information, radio resource configuration information that is to be used by the radio terminal (1) after the handover in the second network; and transmit this radio resource configuration information through the first network to the radio terminal (1). It is possible to contribute to appropriately configuring an AS layer or NAS layer of a target RAT in inter-RAT handover.

  • Patent number: 11356226
    Abstract: The invention relates methods for triggering channel quality feedback for at least one of plural component carriers of a communication system available for downlink transmission. The invention suggests a mechanism for triggering channel quality feedback from a terminal where the downlink control signaling overhead for the selection of component carrier(s) to be reported on is minimized. One aspect of the invention is a new interpretation of a predetermined format for dedicated control information comprising a CQI request flag, which is depending on the status of the CQI request flag. In case the CQI request flag is set at least one further bit of the dedicated control information is interpreted as information indicative of the one or more component carriers available for downlink transmission to the terminal and the terminal is providing channel quality feedback on the channel quality experienced on the indicated component carrier or component carriers.

  • Patent number: 11356213
    Abstract: Transmitters consider the size of a gap segment adjacent to at least one negatively acknowledged (NACKed) Radio Link Control (RLC) Service Data Unit (SDU) when considering when and/or how to concatenate one or more NACKed SDU segments for retransmission. Depending on which RLC SDU segment(s) is/are NACKed, e.g., considering the size of NACKed segments in relation to Protocol Data Unit (PDU) header size(s) needed, the transmitter implements a single RLC SDU retransmission or multiple RLC SDU segment retransmissions. In so doing, the solution presented herein not only defines how such transmissions occur, but also provides improved efficiency when retransmitting such NACKed SDU segments.

  • Patent number: 11356155
    Abstract: A method is provided of optimizing multi-cell association for a downlink multi-user, multiple-input, multiple-output (MU-MIMO) system that includes a plurality of base stations corresponding to C number of cells which serve K user terminals. Each user terminal connects with at least two cells. The method includes determining which cells for each user to connect with based on minimizing an objective function that is dependent on at least weight parameters for each kth user connected to each cth cell. Based on the determination, the user terminals are connected to their respective cells and the weight parameters are applied toward a beamforming configuration for the plurality of base stations. A device is also provided having processing circuitry configured to perform the method.

  • Patent number: 11356924
    Abstract: A first base station (1) is configured to send, to a second base station (2), first configuration information that is necessary to establish a data bearer and a data radio bearer in the second base station (2) for a C/U-plane split scenario (S105). Further, the first base station (1) is configured to keep the first configuration information in the first base station (1) even after the data bearer and the data radio bearer are established in the second base station (2) (S109). It is thus, for example, possible to contribute to a reduction in a path switch delay when a UE moves between cells in the C/U-plane split scenario.
