  • Patent number: 11184743
    Abstract: Distributed communications systems (DCSs) supporting virtualization of remote units as citizens band radio service (CBRS) devices (CBSDs) are disclosed. In examples discussed herein, the DCS includes a routing circuit that is coupled to a number of remote units configured to communicate a downlink communications signal(s) and an uplink communications signal(s) in one or more CBRS channels. In this regard, a CBRS control circuit is provided to present each of the remote units as a uniquely identifiable virtual CBSD to a spectrum access system (SAS) and facilitate communications between the SAS and the remote units. As such, the SAS may be able spoofed to treat the uniquely identifiable virtual CBSD as real CBSDs to uniquely identify each of the remote units for CBRS channel assignment and/or transmission power control. As a result, it may be possible to support CBRS in the DCS in compliance with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requirements.

  • Patent number: 11138263
    Abstract: A method includes generating metrics based on a first plurality of interactions with first content of a playlist. A first metric indicates approval of a first content item of the playlist and a second metric indicates a first duration of playback of a second content item of the playlist during playback of the playlist. The first duration of playback of the second content item is greater than a first default duration of playback. The method further includes reporting at least the first metric and the second metric and receiving a modified playlist. The modified playlist may be the playlist modified based on at least the first metric. The method further includes identifying, in captured data associated with access to the modified playlist, a second plurality of interactions with second content of the modified playlist. The second plurality of interactions corresponds to fewer deviations than the first plurality of interactions.

  • Patent number: 11128596
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses for acquisition of an address resolution protocol (ARP)/IPv6 Neighbour cache at a user plane function (UPF) entity without performing deep packet inspection for every packet that traverses a network. The ARP broadcast/ICMPv6 Neighbour Solicitation multicast from any Ethernet client (a user equipment (UE) or clients behind the UE or clients in a data network (DN)) is responded to by the UPF entity itself, by looking up the ARP/IPv6 Neighbour cache built in the UPF entity, irrespective of whether the UPF entity acts as the core Ethernet switch or whether the core Ethernet switch is in the DN. The solution is simplified to always intercept ARP at the UPF entity and respond to it based on a local ARP/IPv6 Neighbour cache.

  • Patent number: 11102741
    Abstract: Embodiments are provided herein for determining a synchronizing master for device-to-device (D2D) communication in a cellular network environment. In an embodiment, a user equipment (UE) receives a discovery signal comprising a timing reference, and determines a transmitter of the discovery signal. In accordance with the determination of the transmitter of the discovery signal, the UE performs one of synchronizing to the timing reference in the discovery signal and transmitting a second discovery signal. The UE performs the synchronizing to the timing reference if the transmitter of the discovery is a cellular network. Alternatively, the UE transmits the second discovery signal upon determining that the transmitter of the discovery signal is a second UE that is out of coverage of a cellular network.

  • Patent number: 11089653
    Abstract: According to one configuration, a mobile communication device receives first communications over a first wireless communication link from a first wireless network (which potentially supports data only communications). The first communications received over the first wireless network can include a message indicating a pending incoming call available over a second wireless network (which potentially supports voice/call communications). In response to receiving the message indicating the pending incoming call, the mobile communication device is operated to receive second communications (such as a paging signal) from over the second wireless network. For example, the mobile communication device listens for a paging signal from the second wireless network further indicating the pending incoming call. If desired, an operator of the mobile communication device can accept the incoming call via a second wireless communication link to the second wireless network.
