  • Patent number: 11206705
    Abstract: Various embodiments disclosed herein provide for flexible carrier uplink and downlink pairing for 4G, 5G and future networks. Downlink and uplink channels can be assigned to different bands that are not contiguous or bands that have different bandwidths. This enables base station devices to have the flexibility to assign uplink and downlink communications to bands that have lower load and thus improve the efficiency and throughput of the communication link for both uplink and downlink. The base station device can also assign uplink and downlink pairing in order to minimize passive intermodulation interference. Passive intermodulation interference from a transmission can cause interference in bands near the transmission band, and so the base station device can assign downlink and uplink bands that are separate from each other in order to reduce the passive intermodulation interference.

  • Patent number: 10432416
    Abstract: A method for performing evolved multimedia broadcast and multicast service (eMBMS) counting efficiently in wireless systems is provided. The method includes receiving by a radio link control (RLC) layer of a User Equipment (UE), a Multicast Control Channel (MCCH) packet containing an MBMS counting request from a network. The RLC layer then transfers the MCCH packet to a Radio Resource Control (RRC) layer of the UE. The RRC layer processes the MBMS counting request and generating an MBMS counting response by and transmits an indication for successful reception of the MBMS counting request to the RLC layer. The RLC layer verifies if a subsequent MCCH modification boundary indication is received in a selected MCCH modification period and discards one or more subsequent MCCH packets received in a selected MCCH modification period if the MCCH modification boundary indication is not received from a physical layer.

  • Patent number: 10368346
    Abstract: Various aspects provide for receiving signaling including information configured to indicate whether to adjust a structure of a time-division duplex (TDD) subframe. Such adjusting may include adjusting a time or subcarrier allocated for a control channel, data, and/or a reference signal, such as a user equipment (UE)-specific reference signal (UERS). The UERS may be time-aligned with a demodulation reference signal (DMRS) of another TDD subframe. The UERS may be utilized for inter-link multi-user multiple-input multiple-output (MU-MIMO) when the UERS is orthogonal to the DMRS. Various other aspects provide for communicating one or more pilot or null tones in a data portion of a first TDD subframe. The one or more pilot or null tones may be used to capture interference from a second TDD subframe communicated by another apparatus. The first TDD subframe may be communicated at least partially concurrent with the second TDD subframe.

  • Patent number: 10149321
    Abstract: Techniques for procedures using request to send/clear to send (RTS/CTS) procedures and multiple timers are described. A RTS/CTS procedure using multiple timers may use a first timer and a second timer. The first timer may be associated with a duration to transmit and receive a request to send (RTS) message and a clear to send (CTS) message. The second timer may be associated with a duration to transmit a data message. A network device may transmit a RTS message to request communication resources to transmit data. If the CTS message is not received prior to the expiration of the first timer, neighboring network devices may determine that the communication resources were not allocated and may attempt to request the newly available resources. If a CTS message is received, the network device may communicate the second timer data to the neighboring network devices in a variety of ways.
