    Abstract: The present disclosure describes over-the-air UL-DL reciprocity calibration of UEs. In some embodiments, the UE may perform the calibration at the UE, while in other embodiments the BS may determine the calibration parameters for a UE and send the parameters to the UE for implementation. The BS may explicitly or implicitly transmit an UL channel estimate to the UE for use with the DL channel estimate. The UE determine calibration parameters to implement at the UE based on the BS feedback. Alternatively, the BS may transmit UE calibration parameters determined as a byproduct if the BS's own calibration procedure. The UE may instead participate in a calibration procedure with another UE. Under any approach, the UE may implement in its RF chain the results of the calibration procedure.

  • Patent number: 10129802
    Abstract: Techniques and devices are disclosed for efficient offloading and/or aggregation of resources by providing different levels of connection management in a network. A wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) may support additional ECM and/or RRC states (e.g. inactive states) and/or transitions that may enable a WTRU to act without an RRC connection and/or with reduced latency. A WTRU may operate with network resources with and/or without radio resources. A WTRU may operate in parallel with a plurality of layers, including a primary layer for which the WTRU may behave according to LTE or other behavior. The WTRU may be configured for operation in a secondary layer. The WTRU may establish a secondary layer security context and/or a tunnel or routing for the secondary layer for transport of user plane data between the WTRU and a gateway. The WTRU may determine to which layer uplink data may be applicable.

  • Patent number: 10075778
    Abstract: An integrated base station provides uplink and downlink wireless connectivity between user equipment and a wireless communication network. In order to accommodate certain features of the network, a bypass switch of the integrated base station is employed so that the baseband module of the base station is bypassed as to those features. In this case, selected data obtained from the RF transceiver of the integrated base station is processed by equipment in the back end system instead of by the baseband module. A first operation mode enables the baseband module to process the selected data, while a second operation mode bypasses the baseband module so that the back end system performs the processing. The bypass switch may be permanently activated. The bypass process allows for processing of the selected data in an efficient manner without requiring replacement of the integrated base station, thereby providing an efficient and cost-effective solution.

  • Patent number: 10057838
    Abstract: An access point may perform a method for X2 communication set up in a wireless communication network. The method may include discovering a neighbor node at an access point, optionally in response to detecting a new neighbor node, or an address parameter change at a neighbor node. The method may further include transmitting to an X2 gateway (X2-GW), a registration message comprising an address of the neighbor node for X2 communication. The registration message may include at least two addresses of the at least one neighbor node, the two addresses corresponding to addresses at a higher protocol layer and a lower protocol layer, for example a transport network layer (TNL) address and radio network layer (RNL) address of the at least one neighbor node. The access point may further receive an acknowledgement message from the X2-GW for the registration message.

  • Patent number: 10015184
    Abstract: Systems and methods of detecting an attack in a utility grid are described. An anomaly detector identifies a first indication of signal samples used by a controller to adjust a voltage level at a load terminal during a first time interval, and a first indication of voltage levels at the load terminal of the controller. The anomaly detector identifies a regulator emulation model (“REM”) for the controller. The anomaly detector receives a second indication of signal samples used by the controller during a second time interval, and a second indication of a voltage level at the load terminal. The anomaly detector detects a level of conformance with the REM based on a comparison of the second indication of the voltage levels with a voltage level determined by inputting the second indication of the signal samples into the REM. The anomaly detector provides a notification indicating an anomaly with the controller.
