  • Patent number: 11997752
    Abstract: A method and apparatus are disclosed. In an example from the perspective of a User Equipment (UE) with a first Universal Subscriber Identity Module (USIM) and a second USIM, the UE establishes a connection associated with the first USIM, wherein a UE state corresponding to the first USIM enters connected state. The UE stops monitoring paging in a serving cell for the second USIM based on a time domain pattern derived using a second UE Identifier (UE ID) associated with the second USIM, wherein the stopping monitoring paging is performed when the UE state corresponding to the first USIM is connected state and a UE state corresponding to the second USIM is idle state or inactive state. The UE receives, in a serving cell for the first USIM from a network node, an indication associated with activity for the second USIM via the connection associated with the first USIM.

  • Patent number: 11968714
    Abstract: This disclosure provides systems, methods and apparatus for clear channel assessment (CCA) enabled narrowband (NB) communications. In some implementations, a device is configured to associate with an NB channel (such as a Bluetooth channel), perform a CCA to assess whether the NB channel is clear, and transmit on the NB channel when clear. If the NB channel is not clear, the device may prevent transmitting on the NB channel. The device may prevent avoiding the NB channel after the first time that the NB channel is not clear. If the NB channel remains not clear (such as over a number of CCAs for the NB channel), the device may avoid the NB channel by removing the NB channel for FH for an amount of time. In some implementations, the device may be configured to perform frame based equipment (FBE) CCAs for one or more NB channels.

  • Patent number: 11503460
    Abstract: A mobile device pairs with a wearable device via a wireless network. The mobile device receives private user data from the wearable device via the wireless network. The mobile device does not store the private user data in volatile or non-volatile storage before receiving the private user data from the wearable device. The mobile device stores the private user data received from the wearable device only in volatile storage. In response to user input, the mobile device modifies the private user data in the volatile storage. The mobile device synchronizes the private user data on the mobile device with the wearable device by sending the modified private user data or a portion thereof to the wearable device. In response to generation of a deletion command, the mobile device releases the modified private user data.

  • Patent number: 11503665
    Abstract: An electronic device connects to another electronic device using a communication link, such as a Wi-Fi link as provided by a Wi-Fi access point. The electronic device includes a transport monitoring module that monitors outgoing communications (e.g., Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) packets) from the electronic device. When the other electronic device disconnects from the Wi-Fi access point, the transport monitoring module determines that a transport anomaly has occurred. In response to determining that the transport anomaly has occurred, a probe module of the electronic device sends a probe (e.g., an Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) dead peer detection probe) to determine whether the other electronic device is reachable.

  • Patent number: 11496983
    Abstract: A technique for reducing interference on conducted RF links involves a determination of active wireless channels in an electronic device. For example, the device can determine whether there are any active cellular, WiFi, and/or Bluetooth channels. If so, any active channels can be removed from a list of possible channels that can be used for generating the RF signals for the conducted RF link. If any idle channels remain available, one or more may be selected for use for the conducted RF link. Those idle channels having a higher offset from any active channels may be given a greater weight in the selection since they should be less likely to be subject to interference. If not, one of the least crowded active channels may be selected for use for the conducted RF link.

  • Patent number: 11463977
    Abstract: A wireless communication device, WCD (12), is associated with multiple Machine Type Communication (MTC) applications (14), each application (14) corresponding to a respective MTC Service Provider (SP) network (16) that identifies it using a corresponding “external identifier”. The involved MTC SP networks (16) use the same common identifier to request a wireless communication network, WCN (18), used to access the WCD (12) to undertake certain configuration actions with respect to the WCD (12). The WCD (12) may belong to a group of WCDs (12), in which case the common identifier is an external group identifier. The WCN (18) advantageously determines which MTC SP network (16) is the “requesting provider” for a given requested configuration action, and it restricts the configuration action within the WCN (18) to the requesting provider.

  • Patent number: 11425685
    Abstract: A wireless device and a method therein for receiving positioning system information from a radio network node. The wireless device and the radio network node operate in a wireless communications network. The wireless device receives positioning system information broadcast scheduling information comprising information about positioning System Information Blocks that are comprised in a System Information message. Further, the wireless device receives an indication that a pSIB is segmented into pSIB segments. Based on the indication and on the pSI the wireless device determines whether or not the pSIB segments are scheduled via contiguous scheduling. When the pSIB segments are determined to be scheduled via contiguous scheduling, the wireless device monitors scheduled resources, retrieves the contiguously scheduled pSIB segments and decodes position system information of the retrieved pSIB segments.
