  • Patent number: 10540605
    Abstract: In one embodiment, techniques are shown and described relating to traffic-based inference of influence domains in a network by using learning machines. In particular, in one embodiment, a management device computes a time-based traffic matrix indicating traffic between pairs of transmitter and receiver nodes in a computer network, and also determines a time-based quality parameter for a particular node in the computer network. By correlating the time-based traffic matrix and time-based quality parameter for the particular node, the device may then determine an influence of particular traffic of the traffic matrix on the particular node.

  • Patent number: 10524217
    Abstract: A first network node 104 and a method therein for establishing a neighbour relation with a second network node 106,106?. The first network node 104 and the second network node are operating in a wireless communications network 100, The first network node receives an uplink synchronisation signal from a communications device 110 operating in the wireless communications network. For neighbour node determination, the first network node transmits, to a third network node 108 operating in the wireless communications network, a first information, which first information relates to the identity of the received signal and to a first reception time of the signal. The first network node establishes a neighbour relation with at least one of a second network node and one or more of one or more further second network nodes based on a neighbour node determination performed by the third network node based on the first information.

  • Patent number: 10505778
    Abstract: Provided are methods and devices for transmitting/receiving downlink signals in a narrowband. A user equipment acquires a first cell identifier from a first carrier on which a narrowband synchronization signal (nSS) and a narrowband broadcast channel (nPBCH) are present. Carrier information for a second carrier on which the nSS and the PBCH are not present is provided to a user equipment. The user equipment receives downlink data on the second carrier based on the carrier information and a narrowband reference signal (NB-RS). The NB-RS is received based on the first cell identifier. Each of the first and second carriers operates in one resource block.
