  • Patent number: 10244575
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable media are disclosed for managing performance of communications over a Voice over Long Term Evolution (VoLTE) network. A packet flow associated with a VoLTE call may be monitored, and an interruption in the packet flow that exceeds a threshold duration may be determined to be an abnormal termination of the VoLTE call. Information regarding the abnormal VoLTE call termination may be propagated through various network platforms to an enhanced Node B (eNB), where an abnormal VoLTE call termination event may be logged. The abnormal VoLTE call termination event may be utilized when analyzing the performance of the VoLTE network.

  • Patent number: 10172065
    Abstract: When a handover request for performing a handover of a terminal (70) from a macro cell C1 to a CSG cell C2 is received from an SeNB 10 (S8), a base station (TeNB) (40) of the CSG cell C2 transmits a handover response in accordance with a handover enabled/disabled state (S12). The handover response includes an identifier of the terminal (70) in the CSG cell C2. Upon receiving the response, the SeNB (10) notifies the identifier to the terminal (70) (S14). The TeNB (40) repeatedly transmits a dedicated signal containing a handover command via a dedicated channel set using the identifier at an interval shorter than a gap period (S18). Accordingly, whether or not access is permitted can be judged promptly and a smooth handover can be realized.

  • Patent number: 10136299
    Abstract: Techniques for use by a mobile device configured to operate in a wireless network for the communication of data messages with a server are described. When the mobile device does not have an open session with the server, the mobile device receives from a service node via the wireless network a message which informs the mobile device that a data message has arrived at the server and needs to be retrieved. The message includes an identifier which identifies the data message at the server. In response to opening an application at the mobile device, the mobile device communicates directly with the server via the wireless network for retrieving the data message. This involves commencing an open session with the server, sending to the server a command for retrieving the data message, and receiving from the server the data message in response to sending the command. The mobile device may use the identifier for retrieving the data message from the server.

  • Patent number: 9860325
    Abstract: A computer device includes logic configured to implement a tunnel broker. The tunnel broker is configured to receive a request from a client device for a service in a system, the service having a requested service property; select a first node in the system that hosts a first service instance having the requested service property; and establish a communication tunnel with a first end at the client device and a second end at the selected first node. The tunnel broker is further configured to determine that the first node no longer hosts the first service instance having the requested service property or that the first node has become unreachable; select a second node in the system that hosts a second service instance having the requested service property; and move the second end of the communication tunnel from the first node to the second node.

  • Patent number: 9838102
    Abstract: Measurements and Channel State Information (CSI) feedback are configured using communications between a network and user equipment (UE). The communications includes a first signaling from a network component to the UE indicating one or more reference signal (RS) resource configurations, a second signaling indicating one or more interference measurement (IM) resource configurations, and a third signaling indicating a CSI report configuration, wherein the CSI report configuration indicates a subset of the one or more RS resource configurations and a subset of the one or more IM resource configurations. The UE establishes a RS based measurement according to the subset of the one or more RS resource configurations and an IM according to the subset of the one or more IM resource configurations. The UE then generates and sends to the network a CSI report in accordance with the CSI report configuration and using the RS based measurement and the IM.
