  • Patent number: 10693605
    Abstract: A RACH preamble is transmitted from a UE using multiple antenna ports. A UE splits a data stream containing a RACH preamble into multiple streams corresponding to a same number of antenna ports of the UE. The UE multiplexes the copies of the RACH preamble according to a multiplexing scheme that enables a receiving eNB to discern the different channels used to transmit the signal from the different antenna ports. A RACH procedure is further accomplished in two steps instead of four by the UE then splitting a RACH payload to the same number of streams and multiplexing the RACH payload for transmission to the eNB. The eNB receives both transmissions, and may use the RACH preamble as a reference signal, and responds with a combined message with control information, random access response, and contention resolution information.

  • Patent number: 10686558
    Abstract: A user equipment (e.g., C-V2X user equipment) can receive a transmission from a network device of a mobile network and decode the transmission using a first forward error correction code. It can determine an attribute of the transmission to determine a condition of the communication channel. Based on the condition of the communication channel, it can facilitate transmitting feedback to the network device, wherein the feedback is forwarded through the mobile network to an application server device that selects a second forward error correction code based on the feedback. The second forward error correction code can be transmitted to, and received by, the user equipment. The user equipment can use the second forward error correction code to decode subsequent transmissions.

  • Patent number: 10686642
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to adaptive modulation and coding scheme selection and signaling in a communication system. In particular, a modulation and coding scheme to be used for transmission of a data is selected from a set of predetermined modulation and coding schemes. The predetermination of the set is performed by selecting the set from a plurality of predefined sets. The sets have the same size, so that a modulation and coding selection indicator signaled to select the modulation and coding scheme may be advantageously applied to any of the selected sets. Moreover, a second set includes schemes with a modulation not covered by the schemes of a first set, and which is of a higher order than any modulation in the first set.

  • Patent number: 10687354
    Abstract: Current approaches to transmitting uplink data in a network often require resources to be granted. In an example, a node or apparatus may configure a plurality of devices to operate in a grant-less mode in accordance with a respective grant-less access allocation. Grant-less operations may be managed, for example, to meet the reliability and latency requirements and battery life requirements for different types of devices. For example, the state transition between grant-less and grant based may be managed.

  • Patent number: 10687358
    Abstract: An opportunistic asynchronous operation for coordinated new radio (NR) shared spectrum (NR-SS) operations is discussed. In a wireless network having at least one contention-based shared channel in which communications are configured having one or more control intervals time division multiplexed with one or more data intervals for transmission opportunities, a base station receives data for communication at a time during a current data interval on a contention-based shared channel. The base station will review its received signals on the contention-based shared channel during the previous control interval located immediately prior to the current data interval. If none of the received signals indicate a contention-resolution of the contention-based shared channel, the base station may begin an attempted transmission by performing an abbreviated clear channel assessment (CCA). If the CCA is detected as clear, the data may be transmitted.

  • Patent number: 10686628
    Abstract: Embodiments of an access point (AP), station (STA) and method of sounding are generally described herein. The AP may transmit, during a transmission opportunity (TXOP), a trigger frame (TF) to indicate that an STA is to transmit an uplink sounding packet during an uplink sounding period of the TXOP. The AP may attempt to detect the uplink sounding packet during the uplink sounding period. If the uplink sounding packet is not detected during the uplink sounding period, the AP may transmit a recovery packet to cause other STAs to determine a busy condition during the uplink sounding period. If the uplink sounding packet is detected during the uplink sounding period, the AP may determine a channel estimate for the STA based at least partly on the uplink sounding packet.

  • Patent number: 10687359
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. In some wireless systems utilizing shared radio frequency spectrum bands, base stations may operate in different listen before talk (LBT) modes. For example, a base station may operate in an LBT enabled mode or a non-LBT enabled mode. A UE may perform system acquisition with the base station based on receiving acquisition signals (e.g., synchronization signals and physical broadcast channel (PBCH) signals) from the base station. These acquisition signals may depend on the LBT mode of the base station. For example, the frame timing and number of subframes for the acquisition signals may be based on the LBT mode of the base station. In some cases, a base station may adaptively switch LBT modes, and the UE may re-synchronize with the base station based on an LBT configuration period or a paging message from the base station.

  • Patent number: 10686691
    Abstract: Disclosed and described herein are smart, high-speed UV communication protocols, inspired by the biological principles. The disclosed and described protocols use a ‘pipe’ routing topology to deliver large amount of data among the UVs equipped with multi-beam antennas. The disclosed and described embodiments include bio-inspired pipe routing and adaptive batch coding (ABC) based congestion control. In regard to bio-inspired pipe routing, a human's brain uses highly cooperative neuro cells to memorize everything. Inspired by neuro networks, a pipe architecture with high-throughput node-to-node data delivery is disclosed and described herein. The pipe routing uses multi-beam antennas to achieve parallel data transmission. In regard to ABC based congestion control, a new network coding called ABC is disclosed, which can minimize traffic congestion occurrences in the above pipe routing. The disclosed and described transport layer protocol includes both end-to-end reliability and congestion control.
