  • Patent number: 10999280
    Abstract: In general, techniques are described for supporting bulk delivery of change of authorization data in authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) protocols, where delivery is performed as a change of authorization after a subscriber has successfully authenticated and initially authorized. In one example, the techniques are directed to a method including determining, by a RADIUS server for a service provider network, change of authorization data for services to which the subscriber of the service provider network has subscribed. The method further includes generating, by the RADIUS server, RADIUS messages that form a transaction between the RADIUS server and a network access server acting as a RADIUS client. The RADIUS messages provide all of the change of authorization data to the network access server prior to the network access server provisioning the services. The method further includes outputting, by the RADIUS server, the RADIUS messages to the network access server.

  • Patent number: 10979132
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. Some wireless communications systems may implement an integrated access and backhaul (IAB) network architecture where relay nodes connect with other IAB nodes via wireless backhaul links. For improved node discovery, during or after an initial relay integration procedure with a parent node, a relay node may transmit a capability report to the parent node indicating a duplexing capability of the relay node (e.g., whether the relay node is half-duplex or full-duplex capable). Based on the duplexing capability, the parent node may determine discovery reference signal (DRS) transmission and measurement resources for the relay node and configure the relay node with these resources. The relay node may use these resources for transmitting DRSs and monitoring for DRSs from other IAB nodes. If the relay node discovers another IAB node in the network, the nodes may form a wireless backhaul link.

    Abstract: Systems and methods of expanding indication capabilities of existent PPDU preamble fields. The “GI+LTF Size” field is redefined to indicate a new combination of GI duration and HE-LTF size. The redefinition is indicated when the values of the two other existent fields, in combination, indicate an invalid scenario because the two values should have been mutually exclusive. Particularly, the DCM field and the STBC field are both set to the “enabled” mode as an indication for redefine the “GI+LTF Size” field. Upon receiving such a PPDU, a receiver is configured to resolve the PPDU as neither DCM nor STBC is enabled. Rather, the receiver interprets the particular combination of DCM and STBC values as an indication that the “GI+LTF Size” field is redefined to indicate the new combination of GI duration and HE-LTF size.

For example, the UE can insert metadata into its uplink traffic so that the services in the (S)Gi-LAN can be better leveraged. In one embodiment, network nodes are able to insert metadata that relates directly to the UE and that relates to the operating conditions of the network nodes that the UE is using to send uplink data, so that the services in the (S)Gi-LAN can be better leveraged.
