  • Patent number: 11877245
    Abstract: Apparatuses, systems, and methods to indicate power transmission capability for a wireless device. A wireless device may connect to a base station (BS). The wireless device may transmit information regarding transmit power capability to the BS. The wireless device may indicate support for full power transmit capability for a subset of TPMIs for which it provides full power transmit capability, e.g., in a bitmap. This subset of TPMIs may be less than all of the available TPMIs (i.e., it may be a strict subset of the available TPMIs). Full power transmission capability of these indicated TPMIs may be provided via antenna switching and/or antenna virtualization. The wireless device may perform uplink transmission to the BS according to the transmit power capability indicated in the information.

In the transmitter, with regard to each basic shift amount candidate group having a basic shift amount from 0 to N?1, a transmission control unit (206) specifies the actual shift amount imparted to a cyclic shift sequence used in scrambling a reference signal transmitted from each antenna port, said specification being performed based on a table in which cyclic shift amount candidates correspond to each antenna port, and based on setting information transmitted from a base station (100). With regard to basic shift amount candidates for shift amount X, the table differentiates between an offset pattern comprising offset values for cyclic shift amount candidates corresponding to each antenna port and an offset pattern corresponding to basic shift amount candidates of X+N/2.

  • Patent number: 11800528
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. Generally, the described techniques provide for using different configurations for downlink or uplink transmissions associated with different transmission configuration indication (TCI) states (e.g., transmitted on different beams). In one example, a base station may use different configurations for downlink transmissions to a user equipment (UE), and the base station may indicate the different configurations to the UE. For instance, the base station may transmit downlink control information (DCI) indicating a baseline configuration and other configurations as a delta of the baseline configuration. In another example, a base station may dynamically indicate a timing advance to a UE (e.g., in DCI or flow control feedback) for an uplink transmission from the UE associated with a TCI state, and the UE may use the dynamically indicated timing advance for uplink transmissions associated with the TCI state.

  • Patent number: 11728875
    Abstract: Selective radiation of radio frequency (RF) reference beams in a wireless communications system (WCS) based on user equipment (UE) locations is disclosed. The WCS may include a radio node that communicates RF communications signals in a coverage area via RF beamforming. Thus, the radio node is required to periodically radiate a number of RF reference beams in different directions of the coverage area to help UEs to identify a best-possible RF beam(s). However, radiating the RF beams in different directions periodically can increase power consumption of the radio node, particularly when the UEs are concentrated at a handful of locations in the coverage area. In this regard, the radio node can be configured to selectively radiate a subset of the RF reference beams based on a determined location(s) of the UE(s) in the coverage area, thus making it possible to reduce computational complexity and power consumption of the radio node.

    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. In some cases, randomized shifts of a base sequence may be used for transmitting uplink control information. For example, a user equipment (UE) may identify a base sequence of an uplink control message. The UE may also receive signaling that indicates a UE-specific initial shift that may be applied to the base sequence. In some examples, the signaling that indicates the randomized shift may be explicit, implicit, or a combination thereof. After determining one or more shifted sequences based on the UE-specific initial shift, a payload of the uplink control message, and the base sequence, the UE may select a shifted sequence to be transmitted, where the selection is based on a payload of the uplink control message. For example, different shifted sequences may be selected for respective transmissions of scheduling requests, 1-bit acknowledgments (ACKs), 2-bit ACKs, and the like.

  • Patent number: 11672033
    Abstract: A method and device are disclosed for a remote User Equipment (UE) to support UE-to-Network relay communication. The remote UE establishes a PC5 connection with a first relay UE for a relay communication with a first network node. The remote UE also performs a Radio Resource Control (RRC) connection establishment procedure with the first network node via the first relay UE. Furthermore, the remote UE transmits a first RRC message to a second network node via a second relay UE for requesting RRC connection re-establishment, wherein the first RRC message includes a first Cell Radio Network Temporary Identifier (C-RNTI) of the remote UE. Also, the remote UE receives a second RRC message from the second network node via the second relay UE for re-establishing a RRC connection between the second network node and the remote UE, wherein the second RRC message includes a second C-RNTI of the remote UE.

    Abstract: One embodiment of the present invention sets forth a technique for operating an electronic device within a cellular environment. The technique includes determining a coverage enhancement (CE) parameter and one or more radio frequency (RF) link parameters associated with a link between the electronic device and a cellular base station at a first point in time. The technique also includes computing a first estimate for a signal condition associated with the link based on the CE parameter and the one or more RF link parameters. The technique further includes determining that the signal condition is not adequate based on the first estimate and delaying transmission of one or more messages from the electronic device over the link until a second point in time that is later than the first point in time.

  • Patent number: 11616535
    Abstract: Provided are a radio communication terminal apparatus and a radio transmission method by which intersymbol interference of DM-RS of a CoMP terminal and a Non-CoMP terminal can be reduced. A CoMP set setting unit (102) sets the cell IDs of all cells in the CoMP set in a cell selection unit (104), and a serving cell setting unit (103) sets the cell ID of the serving cell in the cell selection unit (104). The cell selection unit (104) selects the cell ID having a number closest to the cell ID of the serving cell from the cells in the CoMP set. A sequence information calculation unit (106) derives a sequence group number from the selected cell ID, and the sequence information calculation unit (106) calculates a sequence number from the derived sequence group number and a transmission bandwidth of the DM-RS.

  • Patent number: 11589411
    Abstract: When a first access node is considering setup of dual-connectivity service for a UE, the first access node could take into consideration a group delay variation of each of one or more candidate second access nodes, in order to decide whether to set up the dual-connectivity service for the UE and/or to decide which of the multiple second access nodes to use for the UE's dual-connectivity service. For instance, the first access node may decide to use a given candidate second access node for the dual-connectivity service of the UE, with the decision being based on the given candidate second access node having a lower group delay variation than one or more other candidate second access nodes.

  • Patent number: 11582082
    Abstract: Provided is a transmitter which improves the flexibility of SRS resource allocation without increasing the amount of signaling for notifying the cyclic shift amount. In the transmitter, with regard to each basic shift amount candidate group having a basic shift amount from 0 to N?1, a transmission control unit (206) specifies the actual shift amount imparted to a cyclic shift sequence used in scrambling a reference signal transmitted from each antenna port, said specification being performed based on a table in which cyclic shift amount candidates correspond to each antenna port, and based on setting information transmitted from a base station (100). With regard to basic shift amount candidates for shift amount X, the table differentiates between an offset pattern comprising offset values for cyclic shift amount candidates corresponding to each antenna port and an offset pattern corresponding to basic shift amount candidates of X+N/2.
