One of four individual work devices receives a reply from main integrated control device at time, adds the communication time to the time at time, and calculates the time at time. One of four individual work devices starts the calculation of the in-device time from calculated time as a starting point. One of four individual work devices logs based on in-device time.

The AAU is further configured to sample the uplink RF signals to generate digitized RF data. The AAU includes an Ethernet interface for receiving Internet Protocol (IP) formatted data from an IP device coupled to the Ethernet interface. The AAU is configured to transport the digitized RF data and the IP formatted data over a transport signal to the host unit, the transport signal including a plurality of bits. The AAU is configured to adaptively adjust the number of bits that are allocated to the digitized RF data and the number of bits that are allocated to the IP formatted data.

  • Patent number: 10790940
    Abstract: Various aspects of the present disclosure generally relate to wireless communication. In some aspects, a user equipment (UE) may transmit a negative acknowledgement (NACK) corresponding to a failed communication from a first transmission/reception point (TRP) included in a coordinated multipoint network. The UE may monitor a control channel associated with a second TRP included in the coordinated multipoint network based at least in part on transmitting the NACK, wherein the first TRP and the second TRP use different frequency bands. The UE may receive a retransmission of the failed communication based at least in part on monitoring the control channel. Numerous other aspects are provided.

  • Patent number: 10757686
    Abstract: Disclosed are a data transmission method, device, and system, which are used for resolving the problem of large overhead if an existing manner of sending a public message periodically is used in an ultra-dense network. The method comprises: user equipment sends an uplink request message, the uplink request message being used for requesting for obtaining public information of a first access node in an area in which the user equipment is located; and the user equipment receives the public information sent by the first access node. Because an access node in an area in which user equipment is located does not need to broadcast and send public information periodically, the access node can send, based on an uplink request of the user equipment, the public information, thereby improving the resource utilization and reducing the energy consumption.

  • Patent number: RE48717
    Abstract: A type 1 system and a type 2 system are classified according to whether carrier aggregation is used. A shared component carrier is used for both a type 1 terminal and a type 2 terminal, whereas a dedicated component carrier is used only for the type 2 terminal. Also, a type 2 base station transmits broadcast information by using a shared component carrier. In this instance, the broadcast information includes the shared broadcast information used for both the type 1 terminal and the type 2 terminal and the dedicated broadcast information only for the type 2 terminal. Also, the type 2 base station indicates component carriers that are used by the type 2 terminal, by using a semi-static component carrier indicator or a dynamic component carrier indicator.
