  • Patent number: 11950242
    Abstract: This disclosure relates to providing system information for cell access to link budget limited devices. According to some embodiments, a base station may transmit an announcement information block (MB) in a downlink shared data channel (e.g., PDSCH), wherein the AIB contains information useable by a UE in determining the location of system information in the downlink shared data channel. The UE can thus determine the location of and decode system information without having to decode a downlink control channel (e.g., PDCCH). This may be important for certain classes of devices, such as link budget limited devices, which have issues in decoding the downlink control channel. Improved paging scheduling techniques are also disclosed which more efficiently use PDCCH paging resources.

  • Patent number: 11601853
    Abstract: The invention provides a method of and apparatus for controlling a ProSe service in a communication system. An eNB sends a first PLMN identifier, and carrier frequency information of another PLMN to indicate at least one carrier frequency at which a UE of the other PLMN can carry out the ProSe service, to a UE in a shared cell, and if the UE is in an idle state, then the UE reselects a cell or selects a PLMN; or if the UE is in a connected state, then the UE performs a handover procedure. If the handover procedure fails, then the UE releases an RRC connection to enter the idle states, or is DRX-configured and carries out the ProSe service in a DRX sleep time. With the solution of the invention, the UE can reselect or be handed over to the cell to carry out the ProSe service at the carrier frequency indicated by the carrier frequency information to thereby avoid the problem of an overload arising from too many ProSe services being carried out concurrently in the shared cell.

  • Patent number: 11563519
    Abstract: A user equipment (e.g., C-V2X user equipment) can receive a transmission from a network device of a mobile network and decode the transmission using a first forward error correction code. The user equipment can determine an attribute of the transmission to determine a condition of the communication channel. Based on the condition of the communication channel, the user equipment can facilitate transmitting feedback to the network device, wherein the feedback is forwarded through the mobile network to an application server device that selects a second forward error correction code based on the feedback. The second forward error correction code can be transmitted to, and received by, the user equipment. The user equipment can use the second forward error correction code to decode subsequent transmissions.
