  • Patent number: 11963025
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and apparatuses for performing a beam recovery procedure using a second CC are disclosed. A UE may perform a beam recovery procedure using two component carriers (CCs): for example, first component carrier may be a beam formed millimeter wave (MMW) carrier having a beam recovery procedure and second component carrier may be an assisting carrier such as a sub-6 GHz carrier or a different MMW carrier. In a first example, a UE may trigger beam recovery for first component carrier (on second component carrier), generate a beam measurement report, and transmit the beam report on resources allocated for uplink transmission on second component carrier. In a second example, a new scheduling request (SR) may be defined on first component carrier for second component carrier beam recovery. In a third example, RACH resources or procedures on second component carrier may be used to perform the beam recovery for first component carrier.

  • Patent number: 11962374
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A base station may transmit a synchronization signal block (SSB) burst set including a first set of SSBs transmitted using a first codebook and a second set of SSBs transmitted using a second codebook. In some cases, the first codebook may be configured for beamforming at a first transmission distance range (e.g., for far field transmissions) and the second codebook may be configured for beamforming at a second transmission distance range (e.g., for near field transmissions). Based on transmitting the SSB burst, the base station may receive an indication of a first SSB from the first set or the second set from a user equipment (UE). The base station may then communicate messages to the UE using a transmission beam and codebook associated with the first SSB indicated by the UE.

  • Patent number: 11963192
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a method for receiving scheduling information, comprising steps of: receiving Downlink Control Information (DCI); and determining, according to a mapping relationship between configured transmission resources used for a Physical Uplink Shared Channel (PUSCH) and scheduling information in the DCI, scheduling information corresponding to the PUSCH in the DCI. Compared with the prior art, in the present invention, the scheduling information in the DCI is determined by the mapping relationship between the configured transmission resources used for transmitting the PUSCH by a UE and the scheduling information in the DCI, so that a base station can schedule all UEs for which there is a mapping relationship between PUSCH configured transmission resources and the scheduling information in DCI by sending only one piece of DCI. The scheduling overhead is reduced, the resource waste is reduced, and the efficiency of scheduling terminals by a communication system is significantly improved.

  • Patent number: 11950197
    Abstract: Timing is crucial for next-generation networks at 5G and 6G high frequencies. Disclosed are very brief timing signals, and low-complexity procedures for processing them, to obtain a precision time-base lock between a base station and its user devices. In contrast to conventional modulation, the disclosed timing signals feature a change in modulation centrally positioned in a timing resource element. Since the time boundaries of the resource element at the receiver are determined by the receiver's clock, while the actual time of the timing signal is determined by the base station's clock, a displacement of the received timing signal from the midpoint of the resource element indicates a clock offset between the user device and the base station. In addition, by measuring the interval between successive timing signals, the user device can correct its clock rate, and thereby bring the subcarrier frequencies into agreement with the base station.

  • Patent number: 11902998
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. The methods, systems, and devices may enable a base station to determine an operation state for a user equipment (UE) that corresponds to how the UE applies a preemption indication. The base station may indicate the operation state to the UE using a parameter of a configuration message. The base station may transmit a grant indicating time-frequency resources scheduled for the UE. The UE may identify a priority of a channel associated with the scheduled resources. The base station may determine a number of scheduled resources to be preempted or canceled and may indicate these resources to the UE using a preemption indication. The UE may determine remaining time-frequency resources based on the preemption indication, the priority of the channels, the operation state, or a combination thereof.

  • Patent number: 11889479
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. In some wireless communications systems, a base station may transmit a control channel such as a PDCCH using one or more control resource sets (CORESETs). A CORESET may be associated with a number of different transmission configuration indicator (TCI) states which may specify information that a UE may use to receive the PDCCH. In some cases, the UE may identify an association between resources of the CORESET and a number of TCI states assigned to a CORESET using various different multiplexing techniques, such as time division multiplexing (TDM). Some associations between the resources of the CORESET and the TCI states may include a mapping of the resources of the CORESET to the different TCI states. The UE may decode the PDCCH based on the different TDM techniques used to configure the CORESET.
