    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to methods and systems for selection of synchronization targets. Embodiments of the present disclosure provide for selecting a synchronization target for a network device, within operational network constraints, when the network device loses its current synchronization target. When a network device loses its current synchronization target, the stratum index of the network device is downgraded to an artificial stratum index before a selection of a new synchronization target is made. The artificial stratum index is broadcast to children network devices. Downgrading the stratum index to an artificial stratum index allows for selection of available synchronization target network devices with stratum indices higher than or equal to the network device's stratum index. After selection of a new synchronization target, the network device's stratum index is updated, and the new updated stratum index of the network device is broadcast to the children network devices of the network device.

  • Patent number: 10201006
    Abstract: Control information associated with a transmission layer of a downlink transmission for a co-scheduled UE may be included in a companion DCI message. The companion DCI message may be sent to a first UE in addition to a self DCI message that communicates information associated with a transmission layer of the downlink transmission for the first UE. For example, a base station may transmit a self DCI message associated with a first transmission layer for a first UE and a companion DCI message associated with a second transmission layer for a co-scheduled UE in a control channel. The first UE may identify the self DCI message and the companion DCI message, and may then receive the downlink transmission based on the self and companion DCI messages. The UE may decode the downlink transmission based on the information included in both the self DCI message and the companion DCI message.
