  • Patent number: 10158997
    Abstract: A wireless network may include devices that wirelessly transmit and receive packets. Each packet may include a preamble, a start-of-frame delimiter, a physical layer header, a sequence of symbols between the start-of-frame delimiter and the physical layer header, and a data payload. The sequence of symbols may have a pattern that is resistant to spoofing attacks. A receiving device may have a correlator that correlates known symbols against the symbols in the sequence using overlapping three-symbol-length correlation windows. Early arrival peaks in the output of the correlator may be used to correct time stamp information in the packets and late arrival peaks corresponding to spoofed signals from an attacker may be ignored. Time stamp information may be processed to determine ranges between transmitting and receiving devices.

  • Patent number: 10148539
    Abstract: Communication between a Radio Equipment Control (REC) and a Radio Equipment (RE) in a wireless network uses a Common Public Radio Interface connection. When the Radio Equipment Control and the Radio Equipment are located remote from each other, and are connected by an asymmetric transport network, such as an Optical Transport Network, path delay data is transmitted in the Common Public Radio Interface data frames. This allows the CPRI end nodes to correct for path delay asymmetry using the path delay data.

  • Patent number: 10142988
    Abstract: Methods and apparatus for communicating and utilizing persistent allocation of resources are described herein. A base station may allocate persistent resources to a client station, and may associate the client station or persistent resource allocation with a particular shared NACK channel. The base station may monitor the NACK channel for a NACK indicating a map error. The base station may monitor the resource allocation to implicitly determine a map error. The base station may resend one or more persistent resource allocation information elements in response to the NACK or implicit error determination. A client station having a persistent resource allocation may monitor persistent resource allocation information elements in map messages and/or may indicate failure to receive a persistent resource allocation information element in a NACK message on a shared NACK channel.

    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a millimeter-wave (mm-wave) frontend integrated circuit includes an array of mm-wave transceivers, where each of the mm-wave transceivers transmits and receives coherent mm-wave signals with variable amplitudes and phase shifts. The mm-wave frontend IC chip further includes a wideband frequency synthesizer coupled to the mm-wave transceivers. The full-based or wideband frequency synthesizer generates and provides a local oscillator (LO) signal to each of the mm-wave transceivers to enable the mm-wave transceiver to mix, modulate, and/or demodulate mm-wave signals. The array of mm-wave wideband transceivers and the wideband frequency synthesizer may be implemented within a single IC chip as a single mm-wave frontend IC chip or package.

    Abstract: A wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) is configured to configure a set of hybrid automatic repeat request (H-ARQ) processes. The WTRU is configured to receive information which limits a particular MAC-d flow to accessing a limited set of H-ARQ processes. The WTRU is configured to determine whether a first H-ARQ process from the set of H-ARQ processes is available for transmitting EU data in a transmit time interval (TTI). The WTRU is configured to determine whether the particular MAC-d flow has access to the first H-ARQ process, based on the information received. The WTRU is configured to transmit data from the particular MAC-d flow in the TTI using the first H-ARQ process, on a condition that the first H-ARQ process is available for transmitting EU data in the TTI and that the particular MAC-d flow has access to the first H-ARQ process.
