  • Patent number: 11356827
    Abstract: A LoRa device for communicating sensor signals in a low power wide area network (LPWAN) includes a physical layer using Hamming encoding and Gray indexing with chirp spread signal (CSS) modulation to encode and modulate the sensor signals and a medium access layer (MAC) including a compressive sensing sub-layer which reduces encoded, modulated signals to sparse vectors. A transmission packet is formed by combining the sparse vectors with a selected set of sparse vectors representing past measurements and the incoming velocity of the sensor signals. A receiver decompresses the transmission packet by reconstructing, at a sparse recovery sub-layer of a receiver MAC layer, the encoded, modulated sensor signals. A decoder path removes the CSS modulation and Gray indexing, and Hamming decodes the sensors signals.

  • Patent number: 11095384
    Abstract: Techniques are described to provide for re-timing a packetized radio flow to clean noise induced by packet delay variation of a packet network. In one example, a method includes receiving, at a first node of a fronthaul network, a Radio over Ethernet (RoE) frame transmitted by a second node in which the RoE frame comprises a Common Public Radio Interface (CPRI) bit stream associated with a first radio device, a sequence number, and a first time stamp. The method may further include generating a second time stamp by the first node upon obtaining the RoE frame; calculating an induced delay value based, at least in part, on the first time stamp and the second time stamp; calculating a re-timing value based on a re-timing interval and the induced delay value; and transmitting the CPRI bit stream to a second radio device based on the re-timing value.

  • Patent number: 11057150
    Abstract: This application discloses a transmission method, a transmission apparatus, and a communications device. The transmission method includes: performing polar encoding on a bit sequence, to obtain an encoded sequence, where the bit sequence includes control information and a cyclic redundancy check CRC sequence; fragmenting the encoded sequence, to obtain n encoded subsequences, where n is an integer, and n>0; and scrambling the n encoded subsequences by using n scrambling sequences respectively, to obtain n scrambled sequences. In the transmission method, the n scrambling sequences are newly defined based on encoding and decoding features of a polar code, and the n scrambling sequences additionally carry ?log2n?-bit information. According to the foregoing encoding method, signaling overheads are reduced.

  • Patent number: 11025933
    Abstract: Techniques are disclosed for managing memory allocations when coding video data according to multiple codec configurations. According to these techniques, devices may negotiate parameters of a coding session that include parameters of a plurality of different codec configurations that may be used during the coding session. A device may estimate sizes of decoded picture buffers for each of the negotiated codec configurations and allocate in its memory a portion of memory sized according to a largest size of the estimated decoded picture buffers. Thereafter, the devices may exchange coded video data. The exchange may involve decoding coded data of reference pictures and storing the decoded reference pictures in the allocated memory. During the coding session, the devices may toggle among the different negotiated codec configurations. As they do, reallocations of memory may be avoided.

  • Patent number: RE48768
    Abstract: The present disclosure proposes a method for transmitting a buffer status report informing of the data to be transmit in uplink. The method for transmitting buffer status report of a terminal in a wireless communication system includes checking, when allocating uplink resource for new data transmission, whether first buffer status report triggered but not cancelled exists, generating, when the first buffer status report exists, uplink data including the buffer status report, checking whether second buffer status report triggered but not cancelled exist except for the buffers status report included in the uplink data, and determining whether to cancel the second buffer status report depending on whether the first buffer status report is a regular buffer status report or periodic buffer status report. With the proposed method, the terminal is capable of transmitting the padding BSR without extra cancellation operation, resulting in reduction terminal's operation complexity.
