  • Patent number: 10666413
    Abstract: A user equipment (UE) transmits uplink control information (UCI) and a base station receives UCI when the UE is configured to have a number of cells configured for operation with carrier aggregation (CA). The base station configures the UE with a code rate and the UE determines a maximum UCI payload to transmit in a subframe that results in a transmission code rate that is no larger than the configured code rate. For transmission of aperiodic channel state information (A-CSI), a number of triggering states depends on the number of cells.

  • Patent number: 10523405
    Abstract: Link speed negotiation for 64 Gbps is done at 32 Gbps to allow only two speeds to be used during link state negotiation. The desire for 64 Gbps operation is indicated in a field shared during link state negotiation. After link speed negotiation is completed at 32 Gbps, a determination is made whether 32 or 64 Gbps operation is desired. If 32 Gbps operation is desired, procedures continue as in the prior operations. If 64 Gbps operation is desired, a new procedure is performed. The new procedure provides time for the optical transceiver to changeover from the PAM2 (pulse amplitude modulation) or binary operation used in 32 Gbps operation to the PAM4 multi-level operation used in 64 Gbps operation. After determining that the optical transceiver is ready to transmit, transmitter training is performed, with increased handshaking to provide improved granularity. After transmitter training is complete, conventional link initialization is performed.

  • Patent number: 9485199
    Abstract: A system and method for data flow identification and alignment in a 40/100 gigabit Ethernet gearbox. Virtual lane (VL) identifiers can be identified to create an effective wiring diagram for data flows. This wiring diagram enables a multiplexer or de-multiplexer to align the VL identifiers to match physical lane identifiers.

  • Patent number: 9467232
    Abstract: A coding scheme for a color-shift-keying constellation in a visible-light communication system is provided, whereby a minimum number of flipped bits between symbols assigned to neighboring symbol points in the constellation is aimed. Improved assignments of symbol values to symbol points of the constellation may be provided, which may be capable of reducing a total Hamming distance between all symbol points in the constellation, thereby leading to a reduction of a bit-error ratio.

  • Patent number: 9451491
    Abstract: An initial reporting structure for an uplink dedicated control channel is used by a wireless terminal following a transition into a state of wireless terminal operation or action which makes it desirable to provide a base station with an initial set of control information which can be used to support uplink transmission of user data. Subsequently while continuing operation in a state supporting uplink transmission of user data, a recurring scheduled reporting structure for the uplink dedicated control channel is followed by the wireless terminal. The initial reporting structure provides for communication of at least some information reports, e.g., infrequently scheduled reports, which may not have been otherwise communicated during the same time interval if the recurring scheduled reporting structure had not been overridden. Thus the use of initial report sets facilitates a rapid overall understanding by the serving base station attachment point of the wireless terminal's status.
