  • Patent number: 11864176
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure provide techniques of allocating time resources (or slots) based on a flexible pattern that allows allocation of a set of non-continuous time slots resources in an integrated access and backhaul (IAB) system. In one example, the aggregation pattern may be indicated via a single downlink control information (DCI) message that carries explicit information regarding non-continuous time slot allocation. Features of the present disclosure may also include techniques to allow for early termination of transmission between the first node and the second node when the receiver (e.g., second node) successfully receives the data channel before the end of aggregated transmission. In such situation, the first node and the second node may cease transmission after reception of an acknowledgement (ACK) message that may allow the second node to utilize the subsequent time slots for communication with its own children on the next hop (e.g., third node).

  • Patent number: 11477795
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure provide techniques for addressing scenarios where the minimum transmit power supported by an Integrated Access and Backhaul (IAB) node is above a minimum value specified by a standard. In some cases, the IAB node may signal information regarding its power configuration so a network entity of the IAB may take it into account (e.g., when allocating or scheduling resources). The power configuration may include an indication of the minimum transmit power supported by the IAB node and/or an indication of a guard band that may help the IAB node control adjacent channel leakage.

  • Patent number: 11431401
    Abstract: A terminal detection method obtaining current first position information of a terminal, where the first position information indicates that a position where the terminal is currently located is a first position and, when the first position information does not match second position information stored in the terminal, obtaining a first direction vector between a target base station and the terminal, where the target base station is to be accessed by the terminal. A current first normal vector of an antenna array plane of the terminal is obtained. A first target vector according to the first direction vector and the first normal vector is determined. The first target vector instructs the terminal to search for a signal transmitted by the target base station in a direction of the first target vector. The method and related terminal may be applied to the process of the terminal accessing the target base station.
