  • Patent number: 11991638
    Abstract: Managing aggregated node group power states. A reflected energy device may transmit energy to one of multiple aggregated node groups. Each aggregated node group includes multiple device nodes. The aggregated node group may be moved from one location to another. The transmitted energy is reflected to detect occurrence of a state change condition. A communication device such as the reflected energy device or an anchor node then instructs device node(s) of the aggregated node group to enter a high power state and to enter a low power state.

  • Patent number: 11991561
    Abstract: The methods and systems discussed herein describe a first wireless communication device forwarding a first reservation signal, which identifies one or more time-slots that have been reserved by a second wireless communication device, to avoid “merging collisions.” In some examples, the first wireless communication device also receives a second reservation signal from a third wireless communication device, which identifies at least one time-slot that is the same as a time-slot that was identified in the first reservation signal. The first wireless communication device transmits a forwarded reservation signal that identifies the time-slots reserved by whichever of the second wireless communication device and the third wireless communication device has higher priority data to transmit. In other examples, the first wireless communication device transmits the forwarded reservation signal if a received power value of the first reservation signal is within a pre-defined received power range.

  • Patent number: 11943701
    Abstract: An access point (AP) station (STA) (AP STA) that is part of an AP multi-link device (MLD) may be configured as a reporting AP may encode a BSS Transition Management (BTM) request frame for transmission to one or more associated non-AP stations (STAs). The BTM request frame may include a neighbor report element encoded to include information about one or more neighbor APs. The neighbor report element may indicate whether the one or more neighbor APs identified in the neighbor report element are part of an AP MLD and, when a neighbor AP is indicated to be part of an AP MLD whether the reporting AP is part of the indicated AP MLD. The AP STA may decode a reassociation frame from one of the non-AP STAs for transition from one of the AP STAs of the AP MLD to one of the neighbor APs.

  • Patent number: 11936576
    Abstract: This document describes methods, devices, systems, and means for fifth generation new radio uplink multiplexing assisted by shared grant-free transmission. A user equipment (UE) inserts a first cyclical redundancy check (CRC) into a transport block (TB), encodes the TB, including the CRC, into a codeword (CW). Based on receiving a preemption indicator for part of a first physical resource, the UE selects a first part of the CW for rate matching with a length based on a received uplink (UL) grant and the received preemption indicator. The UE transmits the first part of the CW using the first physical resource, selects a second part of the CW, inserts a second CRC in the selected second part of the CW, and transmits the second part of the CW using a second physical resource.

  • Patent number: 11937308
    Abstract: A contending radio node is configured for attempting contention-based random access. The contending radio node obtains a timing advance sequence that is susceptible to contention. The contending radio node transmits, using the same transmission advancement timing, the timing advance sequence and a contention-resolving identity to a recipient radio node. Responsive to that transmission, the contending radio node receives a response signal that indicates a contention-resolving identity and a timing advance. The contending radio node resolves any contention in its favor when the contention-resolving identity indicated by the response signal corresponds to the contention-resolving identity that the contending radio node transmitted. The contending radio node, responsive to resolving the contention in its favor, adjusts its transmission advancement timing according to the timing advance indicated by the response signal.

  • Patent number: 11929781
    Abstract: An objective is to provide a terminal device, a communication method, and a communication system in which the time taken by connection operations/authentication operations does not increase proportionally with the pattern length, even if the transmitting side and the receiving side are not synchronized. A terminal device, a communication method, and a communication system according to the present invention create n pieces of signal information (n-bit patterns) by sequentially shifting each bit of a single piece of received signal information (n-bit pattern) one bit at a time. Through the above, signal information time-shifted by one bit each is obtained. Thus, even if the transmitting side and the receiving side are not synchronized, one of the n pieces of signal information is a signal synchronized with the transmitting side. Thereafter, the signal synchronized with the transmitting side can be detected by a brute-force calculation with the patterns (ID information) in the list.
