  • Patent number: 11343784
    Abstract: A 5G wireless communication system to transmit a beam ID or part of a beam ID by joint design of a secondary synchronization sequence (SSS) and Physical Broadcast Channel (PBCH). In 5G during the initial access procedure a terminal will try to obtain fundamental system information/identifiers which are required for future signal transmission/reception activities. Due to the extensive usage of beamforming techniques in 5G, besides identifying a cell ID and obtaining time/frequency synchronization, the terminal may identify a beam ID during the initial access procedure. Therefore, a beam ID is transmitted as part of synchronization signals (SS) broadcast by a gNB, more particularly as part of SSS or as part of PBCH. The synchronization signals may be transmitted as a set of SS blocks, each having an index, which may be a time index, for facilitating identification.

  • Patent number: 11277735
    Abstract: A wireless access node controls Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) layers for a User Equipment (UE). A radio wirelessly exchanges user data with other UEs and exchanges the user data with baseband circuitry. The baseband circuitry exchanges the user data with network elements over backhaul links. The baseband circuitry determines a status of the backhaul links. The baseband circuitry identifies the radio band status for the UE. The baseband circuitry receives user data for the UE from the network elements over the backhaul links. The baseband circuitry selects a number of MIMO layers for the UE based on the radio band status and the backhaul status. The baseband circuitry precodes the user data into precoded data for the selected number of MIMO layers and transfers the precoded data to the radio. The radio wirelessly transmits the precoded data to the UE over the selected number of MIMO layers.
