    Abstract: In a method for avoiding an error detection of control channels in a mobile-radio device, a transmitter device transmits control signals on control channels which are received and decoded by the mobile-radio device. A control channel contains a bit sequence and a check-value of the bit sequence. In the case of a successful check-value comparison, the mobile-radio device accepts the control channel and otherwise rejects the control channel. A control channel, which has not been allocated to a mobile-radio device is defined with a filler sequence which dedicates in the case of a check-value comparison and always leads to the rejection of the control channel.

The first access node could make a determination what type of UE the UE is, such as whether the UE is a relay-UE or rather an end-user UE for instance. Based on the determined type, the first access node could then control whether to apply blind addition or rather threshold-based addition in adding for the UE a second connection with a second access node. For instance, if the UE is an end-user UE rather than a relay-UE, then the first access node could apply blind addition rather than threshold-based addition, and if the UE is a relay-UE rather than an end-user UE, then the first access node could apply threshold-based addition rather than blind addition.

  • Patent number: 10560359
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a method includes determining a first node as a current termination node of a first multicast flow; determining whether a link between the first node and a downstream next-hop node has available bandwidth to accommodate the first multicast flow, where the downstream next-hop node is not currently associated with the first multicast flow; and transmitting the first multicast flow to the downstream next-hop node according to a determination that the link between the first node and a downstream next-hop node has available bandwidth to accommodate the first multicast flow. According to some implementations, the method is performed by a controller with one or more processors and non-transitory memory, where the controller is communicatively coupled to a plurality of network nodes in a network.

  • Patent number: 10531504
    Abstract: A base station (2) is configured to schedule radio resources to device-to-device (D2D) transmissions (101A, 101B and 101C) performed by D2D communication pairs (3A, 3B and 3C) in accordance with an allocation rule that permits two D2D communication pairs (3A and 3C) that are not in proximity to each other to share an identical radio resource but prohibits two D2D communication pairs (3A and 3B) in proximity to each other from sharing an identical radio resource. Each D2D transmission (101) includes wirelessly transmitting from one radio terminal (1) directly to the other radio terminal (1) in each D2D communication pair (3) without passing through the base station (2). It is, thus, possible to enable efficient spatial reuse of radio resources in D2D transmissions performed by D2D communication pairs.
