  • Patent number: 11212343
    Abstract: Systems and methods are described for intelligently managing sessions in a mobile network. A selection engine receives a trigger to select a peer node for a subscriber session. The selection engine chooses a peer selector among one or more available peer selectors in response to the trigger and determines whether the chosen peer selector is associated with a fully qualified domain name (FQDN). In response to determining that the chosen peer selector is associated with the FQDN, the selection engine determines whether a domain name system (DNS) server is configured. In response to determining that the DNS server is configured, the selection engine requests a peer list associated with the FQDN from the DNS server and selects the peer node from the peer list.

  • Patent number: 11134469
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. A wireless communications system may support multicast transmissions from a base station to multiple user equipments (UEs). Each UE may have uplink resources allocated for providing feedback to the base station regarding multicast transmissions. For example, a UE may not successfully decode one or more frames of a multicast transmission. When a UE does not successfully decode the one or more frames, the UE may transmit negative acknowledgment (NACK) feedback indicating the one or more frames that were not successfully received. A serving base station may store frames within a buffer for a transmission window and retransmit each of the frames indicated within the NACK feedback from the stored frames. In some cases, the serving base station may not retransmit frames that were not indicated within the NACK feedback (e.g., frames that may have been received successfully by the UE).

  • Patent number: 10945163
    Abstract: A method and subscriber unit provide mission critical talkgroup service while minimizing truncation and delay when at least one member talkgroup radio is on a Broadband LTE (Long Term Evolution) system. A dual-mode subscriber unit preferably obtains LMR coverage map data to predict the entry point and remaining duration for when the subscriber unit will operate in the backup LTE system. The subscriber unit falls back to the LTE system when the subscriber unit is out of the coverage area of the LMR system. Because the subscriber unit set the connected state prior to using the LTE network and continuously optimizes RRC mode parameters, audio truncation and call delay are greatly reduced without draining the battery of the subscriber unit.

    Abstract: A self-organizing network of nodes communicates with uncollimated optical pulses. The nodes use low-power, unmoving, broad-beam optical interfaces, low-power processors, and communication algorithms based on timeslots within a timeframe. Nodes self-organize to form the network by pulsing detectors and sources to find neighboring nodes, confirm connections, transmit and store data, and exchange partner node identities. Two- or three-dimensional networks can thereby self-organize without external awareness of network topology, and can repair themselves when nodes move or fail. Node communication may be synchronous, thereby allowing for images of the environment status, and activation of the environment is possible via node stimulators. After forming a network, a cluster of nodes may be read out to provide data from node sensors.

  • Patent number: 10660103
    Abstract: A wireless communication device (alternatively, device, WDEV, etc.) includes at least one processing circuitry configured to support communications with other WDEV(s) and to generate and process signals for such communications. In some examples, the device includes a communication interface and a processing circuitry, among other possible circuitries, components, elements, etc. to support communications with other WDEV(s) and to generate and process signals for such communications. A WDEV determines capabilities of other WDEVs and generates a first orthogonal frequency division multiple access (OFDMA) frame that includes resource unit (RU) allocation specified for the other WDEVs and media access controller (MAC) padding (e.g., selected based on capability of at least one of the other WDEVs. The WDEV then transmits the first OFDMA frame to the other WDEVs to be processed by them and then receives a second OFDMA frame from the other WDEVs based on the RU allocation.

  • Patent number: 10630846
    Abstract: An intercommunication system with Adaptive Transmit Delay patches audio sources to a radio system (e.g., a trunked-radio system) such that outgoing audio is sent to the radio system as soon as a channel has been acquired, without further transmit delay. The intercommunication system generates a pattern representative of the radio's Talk Permit Tone. The intercommunication system then buffers outgoing audio while analyzing incoming audio from the radio and comparing the incoming audio to the generated pattern to determine when a Talk Permit Tone has been received. When the Talk Permit Tone is received, the intercommunication system releases buffered outgoing audio for transmission.

  • Patent number: 10587503
    Abstract: Techniques for a selection or reselection a user-plane path in a mobile network are disclosed herein. A user-plane gateway (GW-U) can be configured to decode a packet received from a control plane gateway (GW-C) in a packet data network gateway (PGW) to determine a forwarding policy. Additionally, the GW-U can decode, from an evolved node B (eNB), an internet protocol (IP) packet having a header field. Furthermore, the GW-U can determine a user-plane path for the IP packet based on a comparison of the header field and the forwarding policy. Based on the determined user-plane path, the GW-U can forward the IP packet to a local application server (AS), encapsulate and forward the IP packet to the PGW, or discard the IP packet. Moreover, the GW-U can encode the IP packet for transmission based on the determined user-plane selection.

  • Patent number: 10548081
    Abstract: A data sequence to be transmitted is constituted by a data body and preceding data. The amount of preceding data is smaller than that of data body. If it is determined as a result of executing carrier sensing that a frequency band of radio waves to be transmitted is not being used by another contending communication system, the preceding data is transmitted after the lapse of a predetermined time. If it is determined as a result of executing carrier sensing after completion of transmitting of the preceding data that the frequency band is not being used by another contending communication system, the data body is transmitted after the lapse of a predetermined time. If it is determined that the frequency band is being used, the contention for the frequency band is avoided.
