    Abstract: Certain aspects of the present disclosure provide techniques for resolving paging collisions, for example, for a UE camped on multiple cells. In some cases, a UE detects, based on paging configurations, a conflict between configured paging occasions of at least two cells on which the UE is camped, signals an indication of the conflict to at least one of the cells, and receives information regarding a new paging configuration designed to resolve the conflict. In some cases, a UE identifies a different cell to camp on that is not subject to the conflict, wherein the different cell is not as good a candidate for cell selection as one of the conflicting cells in terms of cell selection criteria, and camps on the identified cell.

  • Patent number: 10757588
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a method and a device in a base station used for wireless communication. The base station transmits M1 first-type reference signals; receives M2 second-type radio signals in first time-domain resources, with any of the M2 second-type radio signals being associated with one of the M1 first-type reference signals; and transmits a first radio signal in the first time-domain resources. If an antenna port transmitting the first radio signal is associated with at least one of the M2 second-type radio signals, first-type channel monitoring is adopted targeting transmission of the first radio signal; otherwise, second-type channel monitoring is adopted targeting transmission of the first radio signal. The above method allows the base station to share a COT acquired by a UE in unlicensed spectrums so as to increase channel access efficiency, and at the same time avoids interference with other potential ongoing communications.

  • Patent number: 10736112
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. In some wireless networks (e.g., MulteFire networks), a base station may transmit control information to a user equipment (UE) to enable the UE to access the network and establish a connection with the network. The base station may transmit the control information to the UE in search spaces of an enhanced physical downlink control channel (ePDCCH). In some cases, resources used to transmit control information in a first common search space of the ePDCCH may overlap with resources used to transmit control information in a second common search space of the ePDCCH. In such cases, using the techniques described herein, a base station may encode control information transmitted in the different types of search spaces using different scrambling sequences. As such, a UE may be able to differentiate between the control information transmitted in the different types of common search spaces.

  • Patent number: 10721770
    Abstract: The disclosure provides for control plane measurements in a wireless device. The wireless device may measure, across multiple sub-frames received over an unlicensed spectrum, received cell-specific reference signals (CRS) from a cell to obtain CRS measurements. The wireless device may identify one or both of a first subset of the CRS measurements associated with a first subset of the sub-frames including opportunistic transmissions and a second subset of the CRS measurements associated with a second subset of the sub-frames including guaranteed transmissions. The wireless device may compute one or both of a first signal to interference plus noise ratio (SINR) value for the first subset of the CRS measurements and a second SINR value for the second subset of the CRS measurements. The wireless device may monitor a radio link condition of the wireless device based at least in part on the first SINR value or the second SINR value.
