  • Patent number: 12010032
    Abstract: A domain and a mobile device may exchange data via a radio access node included in a mobile network. During a time of peak demand, a data load level of the radio access node may exceed a threshold. To accommodate the peak demand, historical types and volumes of data may be used to manage a data rate related to data associated with the domain. Based on the historical information, the data rate for a mobile device, a radio access node, a range of time, or a data type may be controlled. The data rate may be managed by a network gateway, such as a gateway included in the mobile network.

A network controller allocates time/frequency resource units in a set of guaranteed timeslots to packet transceivers in the industrial wireless network. The guaranteed timeslots are timewise divided into slots and frequency wise divided into channels, where one slot-channel pair defines one time/frequency resource unit. The network controller provides to the packet transceivers information about the time/frequency resource units allocated to the packet transceivers. The packet transceivers map packets of their own traffic flows to their allocated time/frequency resource units in each set of guaranteed timeslots. The packets for each packet transceiver are mapped according to priority-based scheduling of its own traffic flows and independently of any mapping of packets of other packet transceivers in the industrial wireless network.

  • Patent number: 11817942
    Abstract: A method and device for modulating with Zadoff-Chu sequences. Each K-ary symbol to be transmitted is converted into a Zadoff-Chu sequence of preset length N and of preset root r, and the frequency offset q of which is dependent on the K-ary symbol. Various root values may be used to separate distinct uplink and downlink and synchronous or asynchronous communications. The modulating device is implemented in the frequency domain. A demodulating method and device allows the K-ary symbols thus transmitted to be recovered. The demodulating device may be implemented in the time domain or frequency domain.

  • Patent number: 11812277
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described for silencing signal transmissions by a user equipment (UE). Silencing signals may be transmitted periodically during shared spectrum downlink communications from a serving base station to the UE to prevent an interfering node from passing a listen before talk (LBT) procedure. The silencing signal transmissions may be configured by the base station and enabled in cases where potential interfering nodes are detected. An interfering node may be notified that silencing signals are being used, and may adjust a periodicity or wait time of its LBT procedures based on the silencing signal periodicity.

  • Patent number: 11765233
    Abstract: A communication device includes a parameter setter and a communication controller for cyclic communication to transmit data including a first data piece and a second data piece different from the first data piece and having lower priority for real-time transmission than the first data piece to slave stations. The parameter setter presets a number of divisions n to divide the second data piece before the cyclic communication is started. The communication controller transmits the first data piece to a first slave station in one cycle, divides the second data piece by the number of divisions n, and transmits the divided second data piece to a second slave station in n cycles, where n is the number of divisions. The communication controller transmits, before transmitting the second data piece, data indicating the number of divisions n set by the parameter setter to the second slave station.
