    Abstract: A base station that provides coverage on at least one TDD carrier and at least one FDD carrier detects that the base station is serving a UE on just one or more of the TDD carrier(s) and that the UE is TDD-FDD CA capable. In response, the base station reconfigures the UE to change the UE's carrier prioritization from (i) prioritizing TDD over FDD to (ii) prioritizing FDD over TDD. For instance, if TDD carriers are defined in one or more frequency bands, and FDD carriers are defined in one or more other frequency bands, this could involve changing the UE's band prioritization to cause the UE to prefer connecting on TDD.

  • Patent number: 10708882
    Abstract: A user equipment camping method and apparatus and a paging method and apparatus, and a storage medium are provided in the technical field of communications. The method includes: detecting a current camped cell; when it is determined through the detection that the current camped cell satisfies a triggering condition and when a UE is in a silence state, determining a target camped cell, wherein the silence state is a state where the UE performs no data transmission after performing a data transmission; and performing reselection from the current camped cell to the target camped cell. According to this disclosure, when a UE is in a silence state and the UE determines that its serving cell needs to be changed, the UE directly performs a cell reselection procedure instead of performing a cell handover procedure, thereby preventing a large amount of air interface signaling and network side signaling from being caused by the cell handover procedure and hence significantly reducing signaling consumption.

  • Patent number: 10517026
    Abstract: The present disclosure discloses a method for reporting a measurement report of a measurement event, including: determining that a measurement event is generated in a user equipment (UE) in an activated state of discontinuous reception (DRX) mode; judging whether a first time to trigger corresponding to the measurement event is valid when it is determined that there is a measurement event generated; using, when it is judged that the first time to trigger is valid, the first time to trigger to time the measurement event; using, when it is judged that the first time to trigger is invalid, a second time to trigger to time the measurement event, such that the UE is in next one or next several activated states of DRX mode after the generation of the measurement event. The present disclosure can improve a success rate of mobility handover between cells or wireless link quality.

  • Patent number: 10516777
    Abstract: Methods, systems and devices are provided to enable voice activity following a call interruption or when a call experiences or will experience interruption or diminished quality such that call experience is affected to be relayed to the communication device of the other party to the call. When an indication that an active voice call with another communication device is or will experience interruption or diminished quality such that call experience is affected, audio received from a microphone of the communication device may be recorded. A message may be generated from recorded audio and the generated message may be transmitted to the other communication device. Generation and/or transmission of the message may be performed in response to user inputs.

  • Patent number: 10511669
    Abstract: A device can receive, at a user plane function (UPF), a set of rules for managing a communications session. The set of rules can include a set of mobility management rules and a set of packet processing rules. The device can store the set of mobility management rules and the set of packet processing rules at the UPF. At a control plane of the UPF, the device can perform an analysis of a flow of one or more packets transmitted during the communications session. At run-time, and based on the analysis, the device can generate a modified set of packet processing rules from the stored set of packet processing rules. The device can receive a packet of the flow, apply the modified set of packet processing rules to the received packet, and forward the received packet and update the modified set of packet processing rules.

    Abstract: A method for setting up X2 through a gateway (GW) is provided. The method includes a home base station obtaining an Internet Protocol (IP) address of a neighbor base station through a Transport Network Layer (TNL) address discovery process, transmitting to an X2 GW the obtained IP address of the neighbor base station, and receiving an X2 setup information confirmation message from the X2 GW, initiating an X2 interface setup process with the neighbor base station, or initiating an evolved NodeB (eNB) configuration update process with the neighbor base station. The method can reduce impact on a macro base station, and reduce complexity of configuration of an operator, so that an X2 handover is practicable.
