  • Patent number: 11317326
    Abstract: A primary access node adds a secondary access node to deliver wireless communication service to a wireless User Equipment (UE). The primary access node comprises a radio and baseband circuitry. The radio wirelessly receives a measurement report from the UE characterizing a radio metric for the secondary access node and transfers the measurement report to the baseband circuitry. The baseband circuitry determines cell site density for the UE's location and determines an add threshold for the secondary access node based on the cell site density. The baseband circuitry determines an add value for the secondary access node based on the radio metric. When the add value exceeds the add threshold, the baseband circuitry transfers network signaling to the secondary access node to serve the UE and transfers user signaling to the radio. The radio wirelessly transfers the user signaling to the UE to attach to the secondary access node.

  • Patent number: 11290914
    Abstract: Techniques for dual connectivity control based on downlink data are discussed herein. A Fourth Generation (4G) base station can receive downlink data to be transmitted to a user equipment (UE). The 4G base station can also receive data from the UE indicating that the UE is associated with a low power state. The 4G base station can further determine a capability of the base station (e.g., an available bandwidth) to transmit the downlink data to the UE. If an amount of downlink data is below a threshold, operations can refrain from establishing a dual connectivity connection. If an amount of downlink data is above a threshold, operations can include establishing a dual connectivity connection. In some cases, thresholds and/or the decision to initiate dual connectivity can be determined based on the state data associated with the UE, such as a battery status, a level of user interaction, and the like.

  • Patent number: 11212711
    Abstract: An unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) calculates an estimated uplink interference caused by the UAV at a neighboring cell based on a downlink signal received from the neighboring cell. Based on the estimated uplink interference, the UAV monitors downlink messages transmitted from the neighboring cell. If the uplink interference experienced by the neighboring cell exceeds an interference threshold, the neighboring cell transmits a downlink message, which includes an uplink interference indicator, to the UAV. Upon receipt of the uplink interference indicator, the UAV transmits a measurement report, including the uplink interference indicator, to the serving cell. In some cases, the serving cell transmits a handover command to the UAV based at least partially on the measurement report. The serving cell may also maintain a mobility history for the neighboring cell. The mobility history indicates a history of uplink interference problems and/or UAV handover availability for the neighboring cell.

  • Patent number: 11109449
    Abstract: A communication system for supporting communication for a vehicle (103) includes a plurality of fixed network segments. Communication from access points (109) to wireless modems (111) uses mm wave radio communication links. The fixed network and vehicle comprise segment multipath controllers (1007, 1101) coupled to the wireless modems or access points (109) for multipath communication with each other. Different segments have different segment multipath controllers (1007). Root multipath controllers (1103) are included having multipath connections coupled to the plurality of segment multipath controllers (1101) and being arranged to perform multipath communication with a complementary root multipath controller (1009) of the fixed network (107). The hierarchical multipath controller approach may provide efficient adaptation to network configuration changes caused by vehicle movement.

  • Patent number: 11102711
    Abstract: In a network comprising both fixed transmission points and mobile transmission points, the transmission points may transmit discovery reference signals that allow WTRUs to detect and/or synchronize to the transmission points. The fixed and mobile transmission points may transmit discovery reference signals with different characteristics that allow the WTRUs to distinguish between fixed and mobile transmission points. The mobile transmission points may also transmit a separate maintenance reference signal that allows WTRUs to maintain a connection with the mobile transmission point. For networks in which fixed a mobile transmission points operate in different frequency bands, the mobile transmission points may also periodically transmit discovery beacon signals in the frequency band of the fixed transmission points to allow discovery. Conditions may be imposed on WTRUs before the WTRU will transmit to the network a measurement report reporting on a potential transmission point to which it may be switched.

  • Patent number: 11089529
    Abstract: The disclosed technology proposes a new methodology to include the effect of speed and direction of a UE into the threshold used for determining when to switch between a 4G UL connection and a 5G UL connection. The system can use a lookup table with various speeds mapping to varying thresholds. The system can use an accelerometer sensor or digital compass to determine the direction of the vehicle, such as heading away from or toward the 5G site, so the vehicle can switch sooner from 5G-NR to LTE and from LTE to NR, respectively. For C-V2X applications, latency is an important factor because 5G technology provides shorter latency than 4G; thus keeping the link on 5G is preferred when under good coverage. Further, the idea is not limited to UL, 5G and/or vehicle technologies, but can also be applied to DL direction, Wi-Fi and/or drone technologies as well.

  • Patent number: 11082944
    Abstract: Certain cellular communication systems may use beamforming to create distinct signal beams in different radial directions relative to a base station. Upon receiving a request for the location of a mobile device, a position calculation function is used to calculate the location of the mobile device based on multiple types of location-related data. The location-related data may indicate the direction of the directional signal beam that is currently being used for communications between the mobile device and a base station. The direction may be used in conjunction with other location-related data, such as distance information, to estimate the location of the mobile device.
