  • Patent number: 11121793
    Abstract: Provided are a base station device and a mobile station device, which can lighten a cell-search processing. The base station device includes a frame constitution unit for forming a frame, in which a pilot symbol multiplied by a base station scrambling code and a plurality of sequences contained in the corresponding sequence set is arranged in at least the head or tail, and a radio transmission unit for sending the formed frame. On the receiving side, the frame timing can be detected from the position of a pilot symbol contained in that frame. Since the base station scrambling code and the sequence set containing the sequences are made to correspond to each other, candidates can be narrowed to at most the base station scrambling codes of the number of the combinations of the sequences contained in the sequence set, by detecting the sequences multiplied by the pilot symbol.

  • Patent number: 11101944
    Abstract: A method by which a transmitting end operates in a wireless communication system comprises the steps of: performing sparse coding on information so as to have sparsity of which the number of non-zero symbols is K; configuring a codebook by including a code for spreading for each user; spreading the coded information by using one or more codes in the codebook; and transmitting a channel by overlapping the spread information. Therefore, even if the number of encoded symbols increases, the number of symbols actually having a value is very sparsely configured such that the complexity of a transmitter and a receiver does not increase, and thus restoration performance improves.

  • Patent number: 11082920
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A user equipment (UE) may identify a set of base stations that are part of a synchronization group, where at least two of the base stations in the set of base stations operate on different frequencies. In some cases, the UE may identify the set of base stations based on an indication transmitted by a serving base station for the UE. Additionally, once the synchronization group is identified, the UE may schedule synchronization signals together from the set of base stations. For example, after identifying the set of base stations, the UE may identify a measurement timing window associated with the synchronization group and measure a respective synchronization signal for each base station within the measurement timing window. Accordingly, the UE may then transmit a measurement report to the serving base station that includes the synchronization signal measurements.

  • Patent number: 11077365
    Abstract: Systems and methods for providing a shared augmented reality environment are provided. In particular, the latency of communication is reduced by using a peer-to-peer protocol to determine where to send datagrams. Datagrams describe actions that occur within the shared augmented reality environment, and the processing of datagrams is split between an intermediary node of a communications network (e.g., a cell tower) and a server. As a result, the intermediary node may provide updates to a local state of a client device when a datagram is labelled peer-to-peer, and otherwise provides updates to the master state on the server. This may reduce the latency of communication and allow users of the location-based parallel reality game to see actions occur more quickly in the shared augmented reality environment.

  • Patent number: 11012111
    Abstract: In a case that a large number of terminal apparatuses that are accommodated by contention-based radio communication technologies share a frequency resource, the number of data signals of the terminal apparatus that are non-orthogonally multiplexed in the spatial domain increases. If terminal apparatuses, of which the number exceeds the number of receive antennas or the spreading factor transmit uplink data at the same time, it is tantamount to a presence of terminal apparatuses using the same spreading code, and inter-user interference becomes a problem.

  • Patent number: 11005962
    Abstract: The described technology is generally directed towards batching two or more data requests into a batch request that is sent to a data-providing entity such as a client data access layer coupled to a data service. Described is maintaining a mapping of the requests to requesting entities so that the responses to a batched request, which may be separately streamed, may be assembled into a batch response to the requesting entity. Also described is multiplexing a plurality of requests for the same data item into a single request, which may be added to a batch request, and de-multiplexing the single response into separate responses to each requesting entity.

  • Patent number: 11006401
    Abstract: Systems, apparatus, user equipment (UE), evolved node B(eNB), and methods are described for machine-type communications (MTC) with early termination of repeated transmissions. In MTC implementations with narrow bandwidth, significant numbers of retransmissions may be scheduled based on channel quality measurements. If data is successfully decoded at a receiving device while a significant number of retransmissions remain, system resources are wasted. Embodiments described herein thus use downlink control messaging or intermediate hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) messaging for early termination of repeated messages.

  • Patent number: 10999177
    Abstract: A first node (110) and a method therein for managing modes of operation of a service, referred to as “service modes” are disclosed. The service is executed in the first node (110). The service is capable of communicating with a second node (120) over a wireless network (100). The first node (110) receives an estimated level of a connectivity for the service from the wireless network (100). The estimated level of the connectivity relates to likelihood of maintaining the connectivity to the second node (120). The first node (110) selects one of the service modes based on the estimated level of the connectivity. Moreover, corresponding computer programs and computer program products are disclosed.

    Abstract: Techniques for enabling offline, intelligent load balancing of Stream Control Transmission Protocol (SCTP) traffic are provided. According to one embodiment, a load balancer can receive one or more SCTP packets that have been replicated from a network being monitored. The load balancer can further recover an SCTP message from the one or more SCTP packets and can map the SCTP message to an egress port based on one or more parameters decoded from the SCTP message and one or more rules. The load balancer can then transmit the SCTP message out of the egress port towards an analytic probe or tool for analysis.
