  • Patent number: 11329922
    Abstract: Real-time cell performance information for each of cells in a mobile communication network, referred to herein as network topology information, is produced using IP addresses of data sessions in the cells, measured performance of the data sessions, and IP address to cell identifier mappings. The network topology information may be used to determine, in real time, a level of monitoring for each of the cells. The network topology information may be used to determine, in real time, performance of video streams in each cell. The network topology information may be used to determine, in real time, that a cell is experiencing a performance anomaly. Determinations made using the network topology information may be used to configure, maintain, and optimize the performance of the mobile communication network.

  • Patent number: 11307537
    Abstract: A communication system (1) comprises a central (100) and a peripheral (200). The central (100) receives location information and time information from NTP servers (10) and a location server (30). The central (100) creates first offset information of the time measured by its own device and the time information received from the NTP servers (10). The central (100) acquires from map information a time difference corresponding to a location presented by the location information received from the location server (30). The central (100) creates first updated time information based on the time measured by its own device, first offset information, and time difference corresponding to the location presented by the location information received from location server (30) and transmits the first updated time information to the peripheral (200). The peripheral (200) changes the time displayed by its own device based on the received first updated time information.

  • Patent number: 11283908
    Abstract: A communication device, method and computer program product enable multiple transceiver communication in a communication device having a configurable housing. A pivot mechanism is connected between first and second housing portions for relative movement of a housing assembly between open and closed positions. The closed position aligns four antenna positions in the first housing portion adjacent to one of four antenna positions in the second housing portion to present four pairings of adjacent antenna positions. Four antennas are positioned within the first housing portion or the second housing portion at a different one of the four pairings of adjacent antenna positions. A radio frequency (RF) front end is communicatively coupled to the four antennas and has two or more transceivers that utilize the four antennas to communicate without antenna-to-antenna signal cancellation in RF low band while the housing assembly is in either of the open position and the closed position.

  • Patent number: 11212051
    Abstract: Beam-specific autonomous uplink (AUL) resources may be configured with an associated reference signal for beam management. For example, a base station may configure respective sets of AUL resources that are specific to one or more base station receive beams. These sets of beam-specific AUL resources may be configured to be associated (e.g., quasi co-located (QCL)) with a reference signal, such as a channel state information reference signal (CSI-RS), a synchronization signal burst (SSB), or the like. The base station may periodically transmit the reference signals that are associated with the AUL resources. A user equipment (UE), upon detecting one or more of the reference signals, may identify which set of AUL resources are available for an AUL transmission of uplink data. In such cases, the UE may select a set of AUL resources based on a signal strength of the reference signal associated with that set of AUL resources.

The DM-RS transmission schedule may be characterized by a DM-RS transmission being mapped to a first subset of subcarriers of an OFDM symbol of a subframe of a data stream and Physical Uplink Shared Channel (PUSCH) transmission or Physical Uplink Control Channel (PUCCH) control information being mapped to a second set of subcarriers of the OFDM symbol. The first set of subcarriers may be different than the second set of subcarriers. The data stream may be transmitted according to the DM-RS transmission schedule.
