  • Patent number: 11570620
    Abstract: A mechanism of authenticating a communication device onto a radio access network via a private wireless gateway is described. This includes communicating with a communication device via a first wireless interface authentication information, a preferred roaming list (PRL), and an initial access value are obtained from the communication device. A first expected access value is determined based on rolling code data and a secret function. The PRL is authenticated when the first expected access value matches the initial access value. The communication device is proxied onto a radio access network via a second wireless interface. The proxying includes providing the authentication information and the PRL to a cell site attached to the radio access network.

  • Patent number: 11563739
    Abstract: A server device receives, from a user device, a session initiation request and information identifying a location of the user device, and receives, from a monitoring device that is separate from the user device, an authentication request and information identifying a location of the monitoring device. The server device processes the session initiation request and the authentication request to authenticate a user of the user device, and determines, based on the location of the user device and the location of the monitoring device, that the user device and the monitoring device are collocated. The server device creates, after authenticating the user of the user device and determining that user device and the monitoring device are collocated, a session token, and sends the session token to the user device to enable the user device to access at least one resource of the server device.

  • 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.

  • Patent number: 11160011
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for acquiring system information (SI) in a wireless communication system is provided. When a user equipment (UE) moves to a (neighbor) cell and if the UE have stored system information with same system information area code (SAC), the UE reuses the stored system information (SI) and skip acquiring whole system information blocks (SIBs). If the UE does not have matched SAC, the UE checks existence of any delta SI scheduling configuration which means that a group of SI message is to be update based on the stored information. If a SI message supporting delta configuration is broadcast at a cell and if the SI message includes a parameter which UE has previously stored, the UE replaces the stored parameter by the parameter received from the SI message.

  • Patent number: 11140600
    Abstract: Systems and techniques are disclosed to separate paging and access cell selection (and use) among available cells based on different paging cell and access cell requirements and specific service availability. A UE selects a first cell that meets paging cell requirements as a paging cell and a second cell that meets service requirements as an access cell. Once the UE selects a paging cell, the UE camps on the paging cell to wait for a paging request or a mobile originated request. The UE can select and camp on the access cell prior to a data need, where latency requirements are strict, or delay access cell selection until there is data to transmit where latency requirements are more lax. The UE may also include measurement information of surrounding cells with a paging response/service request, which a core network uses to speed up establishment of dual connectivity or carrier aggregation.

  • Patent number: 11115841
    Abstract: Examples disclosed herein provide the ability to handle situations that may arise when error conditions exist for a networking device. In one example method at a client device, the client device scans for a first identifier associated with the networking device and, upon finding the first identifier, connects to the networking device. As an example, the client device disconnects from the networking device if an error condition exists for the networking device. As an example, if the error condition exists, the client device decreases a priority of the networking device relative to other networking devices for subsequent scans.

  • Patent number: 11096201
    Abstract: A process for scheduling downloads for communication devices connected to a download server through a common access point. In operation, the download server receives a download request from a first communication device. The download request includes a unique access point identifier of a first access point through which the first communication device is connected to the download server. The download server identifies an access point record that is linked to the unique access point identifier of the first access point and updates the identified access point record to include the first communication device in a communication devices list included in the identified access point record. When a count of communication devices included in the communication devices list is greater than the predetermined count threshold, the download server delays an execution of a download service corresponding to the download request received from the first communication device.

  • Patent number: 11089534
    Abstract: Communication systems can enhance customer experience by quickly and efficiently associating and disassociating radio access technologies (RATs) from available networks in a deployment. In one aspect, a user equipment (UE) can optimize usage of a PLMN selector file (e.g., HPLMNwACT) stored within the subscriber identity module (SIM) that comprises a combination of mobile country code/mobile network code (MCC/MNC) data and RAT data (e.g., customized based on mobile network operator (MNO) requirements and/or deployments). Moreover, during PLMN selection, the UE can only search for a RAT that is associated with a MCC/MNC combination, resulting in faster PLMN selection and reduced UE resource consumption. Further, the PLMN selector file can be modified based on MNO preferences via an over-the-air update.
