  • Patent number: 10708919
    Abstract: When a first node is subject to a maximum permissible exposure (MPE) condition, it may be beneficial for the first node to signal, to a second node, an uplink beam to be used for communications and/or one or more properties of the uplink beam. For example, the first node may signal a downlink beam, from a first reciprocal beam pair, and an uplink beam, from a second reciprocal beam pair, to be used for communications, and/or may signal one or more properties of the uplink beam and/or the downlink beam. Additionally, or alternatively, the second node may transmit, to the first node, a signaling state (e.g., a transmission configuration indication (TCI) state) that indicates properties to be used to configure an uplink beam and/or a downlink beam. In this way, the first node and the second node may configure beams in a manner that accounts for MPE limitations.

  • Patent number: 10681775
    Abstract: A system and method for reducing latency in a wireless-to-wired backhaul environment, such as a LTE-Backhaul environment. In the LTE-Backhaul embodiment, the system and method rely on a modification to the eNodeB (eNB). This modification causes the eNB to generate a bandwidth report (BWR) upon receipt of a buffer status report (BSR) associated with an RRC encapsulated NSA signaling. The BWR provides a notification to the backhaul system that SCTP signaling, which is associated with the RRC encapsulated NSA signaling, is forthcoming. In addition, the present system and method provides for a periodic transmission of a grant (e.g., a MAP in a DOCSIS embodiment) in the backhaul portion. The backhaul grant provides for the modem to immediately forward the BWR to the modem termination system (MTS) upon receipt of the BWR such that the MTS may prepare a grant for the forth coming SCTP signaling.

  • Patent number: 10609725
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a data transmission method of a full-duplex system, a user equipment, and a base station. The UE is allowed to initiate full-duplex transmission, and it is unnecessary for the eNB to initiate full-duplex transmission. Before the initiation, the UE does not need to notify the eNB of buffer and preparation statuses of the UE. That is, the UE does not need to send related signaling to the eNB, thereby alleviating load of an entire LTE communications system, avoiding overload during data transmission, and reducing a transmission delay.

  • Patent number: 10609754
    Abstract: Data can be sent simultaneously on the data links between long-term evolution (LTE) and new radio (NR) for dual connectively. However a mobile device can indicate its capabilities to the network. The mobile device capabilities can comprise the number of total multiple in multiple out (MIMO) layers that the mobile device can support. Because different sectors or markets can have different spectrums that can make use of an increased or decreased number of layers, then assessing the MIMO layer capabilities of the mobile device can allow the network to dynamically adjust the LTE side and the NR side capabilities to optimize network utilization.

  • Patent number: 10595337
    Abstract: Channel state feedback is provided from a UE to a base station as a first, detailed or a second, less detailed type of channel state feedback information. Initially it is determined whether the UE has received an uplink grant from the base station or not. If the UE has received an uplink grant, a first type of channel state feedback information is transmitted to the base station on the granted resource. If, however, the UE has not received an uplink grant, a second type of channel state feedback information is transmitted to the base station. Different types of channel state feedback information enables a UE and an associated base station to use available resources more efficiently, when requesting for and delivering channel state feedback information.
