  • Patent number: 11956748
    Abstract: A determination is made that a registration attempt by a UE with a cell of a wireless network has failed when the UE is in a current tracking area. The UE updates a first list with indications(s) corresponding to the cell and an indication of the current tracking area, and the UE uses the first list for additional registration attempts. A network node sends, toward the UE, a request for the UE to store information, the storing to be in response to registration attempts by the UE with cells of the wireless network having failed while in corresponding tracking areas. The information is to include indication(s) corresponding to the cells and corresponding indication(s) of the tracking areas for the cells. The network node receives, in response to a successful secure connection having been performed between the wireless network and the UE, the information from the user equipment.

  • Patent number: 11871469
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. In some systems, a user equipment (UE) may support multiple radio access technologies (RATs). The UE may communicate using both a Long Term Evolution (LTE) connection for control signaling and a New Radio (NR) connection for data signaling in a non-standalone (NSA) mode. However, if the UE uses a data rate below a threshold, the NR connection may be inefficient. To reduce processing overhead, the UE may fall back to using the LTE connection for data communications. For example, the UE may delay or abort adding an NR connection based on the data rate. In some examples, the UE may transmit a fake report or a fake uplink message to trigger dropping an NR connection. Additionally or alternatively, the UE may indicate a preferred mode of operation to the network indicating a preference for communicating data via an LTE connection.

  • Patent number: 11805009
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure are directed towards techniques for adjusting a network connection of an accessory. In some examples, the computing device can determine that the accessory is not connected to a network (e.g., the same network to which the computing device is connected). The network may utilize a first connection type. Using a second type of connection, the computing device may determine an appropriate network for connection with the accessory. The computing device may then transmit instructions to the accessory, using the second type of connection, to adjust its network connection to be connected to the determined network. The determined network may use the first connection type.

  • Patent number: 11743708
    Abstract: Physical layer processing and procedures for device-to-device (D2D) discovery signal generation and transmission and scheduling of D2D discovery signals are described. Detection and measurement of a D2D discovery signal, D2D signal identity management, and monitoring by a wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) of PDCCH for D2D discovery scheduling is described, as is a WTRU that may be configured with a D2D-specific transmission/reception opportunity pattern. The discovery signal may carry a payload for explicit information about user and/or service identity, and may be mapped to physical resources in such a way as to decouple transmission/reception of the discovery signal from downlink operations. A WTRU may measure a D2D discovery signal quality and report to the network.

  • Patent number: 11722874
    Abstract: A ranging session between multiple user equipments (UEs) is initiated using an initial message that includes identifiers (IDs) for the initiating UE and each of one or more responder UEs. Each UE in the ranging session independently determines the timing instances of the signaling for each UE in the ranging session based on the UE IDs in the initial message. Signaling information, such as identifiers for the ranging signals, may likewise be independent determined by each UE based on the UE IDs. The order of UE IDs and number of responder UEs provided in the initial message may also be used to determine the timing instances of signaling and signaling information. The UEs, for example, may use a common multivariable deterministic function with the UE IDs as inputs to each separately derive the timing instance for itself and the other UEs in the ranging session.
