  • Patent number: 11265845
    Abstract: A method to improve paging process by including additional backup paging opportunities in new radio unlicensed (NR-U) systems is proposed. To cope with the downlink transmission impairments arising from possible listen-before-talk (LBT) failures, NR-U user equipment (UE) can listen the additional paging opportunities (POs) to get the paging message. In an efficient mechanism, additional backup paging opportunities are configured while minimizing the UE's power consumption. The invention also reduces UE's power consumption by configuring short and micro sleep cycles between successive backup paging opportunities. In addition, to avoid continuous listening to the backup paging opportunities, paging monitoring can be suspended for a UE if the LBT is successful and the paging is not intended for the UE.

  • Patent number: 11245505
    Abstract: Apparatus and method for communicating control data indicative of the capability of RF receiver equipment in wireless telecommunications devices. The control data is then used to allocate transmission resources to the telecommunications devices (including MTC-type terminals). Where a virtual carrier is established to carry data for a given MTC-type device, the position of the centre frequency for that virtual carrier is assigned on the basis of both the capability of the RF receiver equipment of that terminal and the degree of traffic congestion on the frequency band at which the virtual carrier has been established.

  • Patent number: 11233899
    Abstract: Endpoints, such as telephones, on a communication network may request an interactive communication with another endpoint. While the request is being processed, the calling endpoint may receive a call from the called endpoint. Systems and methods are provided that automatically allow one endpoint to accept the incoming call, such as by joining the two calls, and terminating their outbound call. As a result, endpoints attempting to call each other may be connected with a single call without requiring any endpoint to be routed to voicemail due to their called endpoint being busy. Additionally, arbitration rules may be provided to resolve any “race condition” where both endpoints would otherwise each accept or each decline their incoming call.

  • Patent number: 11224088
    Abstract: Techniques are described herein for periodically transmitting a first set of signals (e.g., reference signals) during an on-period of a discontinuous reception (DRX) cycle rather than during an off-period of the DRX cycle. Such techniques may enable a user equipment (UE) operating in a DRX mode to conserve additional power during the DRX cycle. A periodicity for transmitting the first set of signals during the on-period may be determined. The periodicity may indicate that every one-in-N DRX cycles, the first set of signals are to be transmitted during the on-period. During other DRX cycles, the first set of signals may be transmitted during the off-period. When the first set of signals are transmitted during the on-period, the UE may refrain from activating certain components during the off-period, thereby conserving power.

  • Patent number: 11215688
    Abstract: A method for signal processing includes receiving at a given location at least first and second signals transmitted respectively from at least first and second antennas (34) of a wireless transmitter (24). The at least first and second signals encode identical data using a multi-carrier encoding scheme with a predefined cyclic delay between the transmitted signals. The received first and second signals are processed, using the cyclic delay, in order to derive a measure of a phase delay between the first and second signals. Based on the measure of the phase delay, an angle of departure (?) of the first and second signals from the wireless transmitter to the given location is estimated.
