  • Patent number: 10159060
    Abstract: Methodologies are presented that provide better uplink and downlink data throughput for cell-edge stations (CE STAs) in wireless networks. In downlink, two or more access points (AP) can work in concert to code a signal such that each AP sends a portion of the data during concurrent transmissions. To further enhance the data throughput of a CE STA, each link between the CE STA and one of the APs can have different characteristics or parameters, for example, a different modulation and coding scheme (MCS). The different characteristics or parameters are communicated to the CE STA through one of various signals sent to the CE STA to allow the CE STA to receive the portions of data over the differently configured links.

  • Patent number: 9055612
    Abstract: Systems and methodologies are described that facilitate supporting Quality of Service (QoS) continuity during an inter-base station mobility procedure. Layer 2 (L2) protocol configuration information for QoS (e.g., uplink, downlink, . . . ) and/or uplink QoS configuration information set by a source base station can be transmitted via an interface (e.g., X2 interface, . . . ) to a target base station during an inter-base station mobility procedure. Further, the target base station can select whether to reuse at least a portion of the L2 protocol configuration information for QoS and/or uplink QoS configuration information received from the source base station. Moreover, L2 protocol configuration information for QoS and/or uplink QoS configuration information not selected to be reused can be reconstructed.

  • Patent number: 9055036
    Abstract: A first device initiates a handshake message exchange with a second device according to a security protocol. The first device determines that an application datagram is to be transmitted according to a first transport protocol that limits a size of a datagram based on a defined size. The first device also determines that an application datagram size is larger than the defined size. The first device fragments the application datagram if the application datagram size is larger than the defined size and secures the application datagram with the security protocol. The first device also encapsulates the application datagram fragments in handshake messages, wherein an encapsulated application datagram fragment is transmitted from the first device to the second device in a first security protocol record. The first device may also transmit, to the second device, another application datagram secured with the security protocol.

    Abstract: According to one embodiment, a method for a wireless local area includes: generating a medium access control (MAC) protocol data unit (MPDU) to be transmitted to a target station; generating a physical layer convergence procedure (PLCP) protocol data unit (PPDU) by attaching a PLCP preamble to the MPDU; selecting a transmission channel; and transmitting the PPDU to the target station over the transmission channel. Selecting the transmission channel includes: performing clear channel assessment (CCA) on a first channel to determine whether the first channel is idle; and only after it is determined that the first channel is idle, selecting the first channel and at least one idle second channel as the transmission channel. The PLCP preamble includes channel allocation information indicating a bandwidth of the transmission channel.

  • Patent number: 9019994
    Abstract: A single wire signal regeneration transmitting apparatus receives a serial packet including a plurality of signal segments, and each of the signal segments includes a data field and a stuff time symbol. Each of the data fields, which is followed by each of the stuff time symbols, includes multiple logic 0/1 signal symbols, with accumulated numbers of the logic 0/1 signal symbols in each of the data fields being the same. The single wire signal regeneration transmitting apparatus is adapted to process the serial packet to sequentially output the signal segments, and after the single wire signal regeneration transmitting apparatus outputs the data field from a previously received signal segment, the single wire signal regeneration transmitting apparatus continues outputting the stuff time symbol until starting to process a next received signal segment received subsequent to a currently received signal segment in the received serial package.

  • Patent number: 9021123
    Abstract: A method for receiving a single message includes a receiving communication adapter receiving a first sub-unit in a single message. A transmitting communication adapter partitions the single message into sub-units. The method further includes storing the first payload in the memory of a receiving device, appending a first completion code into the first sub-unit, and sending a first notification to a receiving entity of the first completion code. The receiving entity processes the first payload based on the first determination. The receiving communication adapter receives a second sub-unit of the multiple sub-units after the first payload is processed by the receiving entity. The method further includes storing the second payload in the memory of the receiving device. The receiving entity determines that the first sub-unit is completely stored based on the first completion code, and that the second sub-unit is completely stored based on a second completion code.
