  • Patent number: 11356555
    Abstract: Message-based interactive voice response (IVR) menu reconnection is used to reconnect a calling device to a destination at a specific node of a call path after the calling device disconnects from a call with the destination. Menu options of an IVR service presented during a call between the calling device and the destination are determined responsive to the calling device disconnecting from the call. A message including one or more selectable elements each associated with one of the menu options is then transmitted to the calling device. Responsive to a selection of a selectable element at the calling device, the calling device is connected to a destination endpoint. Thus, where the calling device had partially or fully traversed an IVR service during the call, the message-based IVR menu reconnection disclosed herein enables the calling device to reconnect to the destination without having to repeat that IVR service traversal.

  • Patent number: 11350439
    Abstract: This document describes methods, devices, systems, and means for user-equipment-coordination-set (404) control aggregation that facilitates more efficient control-plane signaling in comparison to conventional wireless communication systems. Overhead for control-plane signaling is reduced by communicating reports and control commands for the multiple user equipments (110) in the user-equipment-coordination-set (404) in a single message instead of communicating a single control message for each user equipment (110). Additionally, the user-equipment-coordination-set (404) uses joint-reception and joint-transmission, to increase the reliability of communicating reports and control commands, especially in the case of challenging radio communication conditions between a base station (121) and an individual UE (110) located near the edge of a cell provided by the vase station.

    Abstract: One embodiment is directed to controlling a gain for a receive signal path for receiving wireless signals. The following are repeatedly performed: determining an estimate of the total noise and interference in a received signal and determining a gain value for the receive signal path based on the estimate of the total noise and interference in order to maintain the digital data at a digital set point for a signal-to-interference-plus-noise-ratio (SINR) decoded with a highest modulation and coding scheme specified for the wireless channel. Another embodiment is directed to determining a received signal strength of the signals received at the receive signal path and determining a gain value for the receive signal path based on the received signal strength that maintains the digital data at a digital set point for a SINR sufficient to decode the MCS specified for the wireless channel.

  • Patent number: 11191037
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and instrumentalities are disclosed for power control for aerial wireless transmit receive units (WTRUs). Power control may be open loop and may be managed based on altitude. Open loop power control may be based partly on path loss estimation from neighboring cells and may be coordinated among interfering neighboring eNBs using path loss information. Dynamic power control may be driven by the WTRU. Reference signal transmissions by an eNB may use uplink resources for path loss estimation, and interference estimation may be based on uplink reference signals. Path loss estimation may be based on downlink reference signals. Dynamic blanking may be provided for Cell-specific Reference Signals (CRS), and random access (e.g. RACH) may be provided for aerial WTRUs.
