  • Patent number: 10728368
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable media for reducing latency in TCP connections that utilize loss insensitive congestion control mechanisms. In some examples, packet arrival times for one or more TCP packets of a TCP connection are analyzed and based on the analysis, it is determined whether the packet arrival times are constantly spaced over a period of time. Whether a TCP control mechanism for the TCP connection is loss insensitive is identified based on whether the packet arrival times are constantly spaced over time. If it is determined that the TCP control mechanism is loss insensitive, then a total number of acknowledgement packets transmitted during the TCP connection and associated with transmission of the one or more TCP packets in the TCP connection is reduced.

    Abstract: Techniques are described for wireless communication. One method includes identifying a priority parameter associated with data to be transmitted on an uplink carrier; selecting, based at least in part on the identified priority parameter, between a first type of message for requesting uplink resources in a shared radio frequency spectrum band or a dedicated radio frequency spectrum band, or a second type of message for requesting uplink resources in the dedicated radio frequency spectrum band; and transmitting the selected type of message.

  • Patent number: 10548022
    Abstract: A digital currency driven channel assignment technique is disclosed. Each AP in a distributed network uses a channel selection manager and a distributed ledger to select channels according to a channel assignment and a digital currency associated with the distributed ledger. The digital currency incentivizes APs to make sacrifices in their channel selection for the benefit of the overall network while punishing APs that select channels selfishly and cause bandwidth interference.

  • Patent number: 10548064
    Abstract: A method and system for controlling broadcast of system messaging from a relay, where the relay provides service on a first air interface and is configured to periodically broadcast on the first air interface a system message useable by WCDs to facilitate acquisition of wireless connectivity with the relay, and where the relay is served by a donor base station over a second air interface on which the donor base station provides service. Per the disclosure, an entity detects that resource utilization on the second air interface on which the donor base station provides service is threshold high, and in response to at least that detecting, the relay is made to temporarily discontinue the periodic broadcast of the system message on the first air interface so as to prevent the acquisition of connectivity with the relay.

  • Patent number: 10523375
    Abstract: A multi-SIM wireless device checks whether each of the (e.g., two) SIMs has received sub-frames in successive intervals prior to a current interval. If such a condition is satisfied by all the SIMs, the wireless device allocates several successive (transmit) intervals to a first SIM before allocating next successive (transmit) intervals to another SIM. If such a condition is not satisfied, the sub-intervals may be allocated according to any other approach (i.e., not constrained by the requirement of successive sets of transmit intervals to the two SIMs) as suited for the specific situation. The allocated sub-frame intervals are used to send the acknowledgements of the previously received sub-frames.

  • Patent number: 10524281
    Abstract: Method performed by a network node for scheduling one or more bearers for transmission to or from a wireless device. The wireless device is serviced by the network node. The network node calculates a weight for each bearer of the one or more bearers. The calculating is based on an indication of a quality of service associated with information to be transmitted in each bearer of the one or more bearers. The network node schedules the one or more bearers for transmission to or from the wireless device based on the calculated weight. The calculated weight corresponds to a Listen-Before-Talk, LBT, setting. The LBT setting comprises an LBT algorithm and its corresponding one or more parameters.
