  • Patent number: 10660029
    Abstract: Technology for improving the selection, transfer, and storage of user equipment (UE) radio capability information is disclosed. A cellular mobile network can be configured to identify radio-access-technology (RAT)-specific radio-capability information relating to RATs supported in the cellular mobile network and communicate the RAT-specific radio-capability information to a UE. The UE can use the RAT-specific radio-capability information to help determine which UE radio capability information to send to the network. In addition, the UE may store a list of supported frequency bands and/or supported frequency-band combinations (LOSB) indexed by network operators and use the list to help determine which UE radio capability information to send to the network. A network node may also selectively remove unnecessary information from UE radio capability information before storing the UE radio capability information at a mobility management entity (MME).

The SMSC can request from a home location register (HLR) routing information to a first text message interworking function (e.g., SMS-IWF) associated with a first visitor location register (VLR). The SMSC can receive data indicating that the first SMS-IWF/VLR is unreachable. The SMSC can transmit to the HLR an indication of an absent subscriber causing the HLR to request a Mobility Management Entity (MME) to reattach the MS/UE to a second SMS-IWF/VLR. In some embodiments, the MS/UE may reattach only to the second SMS-IWF/VLR (e.g., instead of a full reattach).

  • Patent number: 10548071
    Abstract: Assigning traffic to be transported over either the primary band or the complementary band of a unified air interface based on quality of service (QoS) constraints of the traffic may allow for improved network resource utilization efficiency. In one example, traffic having deterministic QoS constraints is assigned to the primary band, while traffic having statistical QoS constraints is assigned to the complementary band when the complementary band is capable of satisfying the statistical QoS constraints of the traffic. If a condition on the complementary band prevents it from satisfying the statistical QoS constraint of the traffic, then the traffic is assigned to the primary band.

  • Patent number: 10536386
    Abstract: Dynamically varying transmission rates of a traffic flow over respective portions of a primary band and a complementary band may allow a transmit point to satisfy quality of service (QoS) requirements over a unified air interface. The QoS requirement may stipulate that an overall transmission rate of the traffic flow over the unified air interface exceeds a threshold. Transmission rates may be varied based on a contention level of the complementary band. For instance, during periods of high contention, the transmission rate on the primary band may be ramped up to compensate for a lower effective transmission rate over the complementary band. Likewise, during periods of low contention, the transmission rate on the primary band may be stepped down to compensate for a higher effective transmission rate over the complementary band.

  • Patent number: 10536871
    Abstract: An apparatus, computer program product, and method relating to radio sensor coverage estimation for wireless network assurance. A network controller estimates a network sensor coverage level for candidate access points (APs), based on potential use of the candidate APs as network sensors to measure at least one key performance indicator (KPI). The controller determines a subset of the candidate APs, based on evaluating candidate APs for suitability as network sensors. The controller estimates a second network sensor coverage level for the subset of candidate APs, based on potential use of the subset of candidate APs as network sensors. The controller determines that the second network sensor coverage level is within a pre-defined threshold of the first network sensor coverage level, and provisions a radio in each AP in the subset of candidate APs as a network sensor to measure at least one KPI.

    Abstract: A method and apparatus for adjusting the transmission power level or transmission data rate between a plurality of stations located within the coverage area of a basic service set (BSS) or in an independent basic service set (IBSS) in a wireless local area network (WLAN). The receiving station extracts a transmission data rate from an incoming signal, determines a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) for the incoming signal, and then calculates noise margin information based on a difference between the SNR of the incoming signal and a minimum SNRMIN for the extracted data rate. The noise margin is then transmitted back to the original transmitting station and using the noise margin information, the transmit power level and/or the transmission rate of this station may be adjusted accordingly.
