  • Patent number: 11102753
    Abstract: A method and a first network node (200) of a wireless network, for handling paging of a wireless device. A Radio Access Network Area, RANA, which is supported by the first network node (200), is registered (2:1) in a database (202) by network nodes IN supporting the RANA, including the first network node (200). The network nodes (204) that support the RANA are then identified (2:3) in the database (202). When it is detected (2:2) that a wireless device (D1) needs to be paged in the RANA, e.g. for receiving data, a paging message is distributed (2:4) to the identified set of network nodes (204) as an instruction to perform radio transmission of the paging message. Further, which is available to the network nodes throughout the wireless network. Thereby, any network node in the wireless network, such as the first network node (200), is able to perform distribution of a paging message to all network nodes that support a particular RANA, as registered in the database (202).

    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. A user equipment (UE) and a base station operating in unlicensed spectrum may temporarily increase a paging opportunity window (POW) size, or reduce a time between POWs, in order to meet performance metrics or account for time periods when a base station is unable to win access to the wireless medium during a POW. In some cases, a UE may identify a failed listen-before-talk procedure and autonomously update the POW size. In other examples, a base station may initiate a change in POW size or increase a number of paging opportunities in order to meet achieve one or more key performance indicators (KPIs). After a predetermined period, or after a triggering condition is no longer present, the UE and the base station may reset the POW size or the number of paging opportunities to a nominal amount to conserve power.

  • Patent number: 10932224
    Abstract: A network node of the present invention transmits downlink data for user equipment using a paging message. The user equipment can transmit to the network node a radio resource control (RRC) connection request message including acknowledgement information that indicates acknowledgement of the downlink data if the paging message contains the downlink data for the user equipment. The network node can transmit to the user equipment an RRC connection refusal message including information that indicates confirmation with respect to the acknowledgement information if the paging message contains the downlink data for the user equipment and the RRC connection request message contains the acknowledgement information.

  • Patent number: 10849051
    Abstract: An infrastructure equipment (eNodeB) is configured to transmit a paging notification which indicates that configuration information which is broadcast in a cell to all communications devices which are configured to operate in accordance with a network controlled function has changed. Communications devices which are configured to perform the network controlled function are provided with an indication that they should receive the configuration information which is broadcast in order to reconfigure the network controlled function. A communications device which is not configured to perform the network controlled function may not recognise the paging notification or at least may detect that it does not need to receive the updated configuration information for the network controlled service. Such communications devices may therefore remain in an idle mode thereby saving power.

  • Patent number: 10841788
    Abstract: The present invention discloses methods and systems for communicating at a cellular router between a first wireless communication module and a first subscriber identity module (SIM). The cellular router receives a first request from a first wireless communication module and encapsulates the first request in a first modified request. The cellular router then sends the first modified request to a first SIM card in a first communication apparatus and waits for a first modified reply. While waiting for the first modified reply the cellular router sends at least one halt message to the first wireless communication module after a first time threshold. After receiving the first modified reply, the cellular router decapsulates the first modified reply to retrieve a first reply and sends the first reply to the first wireless communication module where the first modified reply is a reply to the first.
