  • Patent number: 11096096
    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: 10833823
    Abstract: The described technology is generally directed towards adapting the demodulation reference signal sent in a wireless resource data block based on channel estimation performance. In general, if the demodulation reference signal received was not successfully able to be used to demodulate the resource data block, the demodulation reference signal density can be increased up to a maximum density, which costs resource elements but improves the channel estimation accuracy. If the demodulation reference signal received was able to be used to demodulate the resource data block, the demodulation reference signal density can be decreased down to minimum density, which saves resource elements for data. The network device can use HARQ ACK/NACK data (e.g., a current count or counted over a time period) to determine channel estimation performance, and/or the user equipment can recommend a demodulation reference signal density change.

  • Patent number: 10756782
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to an active set management scheme implemented by a scheduler in a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) network that minimizes capacity and interference issues. For example, the scheduler can initially group each base station into a separate active set. The scheduler can then analyze each active set to determine whether the active set is a good or bad based on the level of interference in and the number of MIMO receive dimensions available in the respective active set. If the scheduler determines that an active set is a bad, the scheduler can determine a set of metrics that each represent a capacity and link quality that would result if the bad active set is combined with another active set. Based on the set of metrics, the scheduler can combine the bad active set with another active set, and repeat this process until no bad active sets remain.

  • Patent number: 10735057
    Abstract: Aspects of the disclosure relate to a selection scheme implemented by a scheduler in a multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) network to identify which users to schedule simultaneously during the same time slot. For uplink communications and a particular frequency wholeband or sub-band, the scheduler can obtain uplink channel information for channels between base stations and UEs. The scheduler can then determine a strength of the channels using the uplink channel information, order the UEs using a fairness metric based on the channel strengths, and compute one or more QR decompositions to identify whether a spatial dimension of a UE is roughly or approximately orthogonal to spatial dimension(s) of other UEs selected to be served during a time slot being scheduled. If the spatial dimensions are roughly or approximately orthogonal, the scheduler selects the UE to be served at the same time as other UEs already selected.
