  • Patent number: 11206562
    Abstract: An apparatus determining characteristics of radios within a communications network includes a radio, RF signal sensor, analyzer, and computer. The radio transmits RF signals, has transmission operating parameters with respective predetermined values having respective thresholds and a identifier, and has an air operating mode where signals comprise the identifier. The sensor receives the signals having characteristics correlating with the operating parameters. While the signals are received during the operating mode, the analyzer measures the signal characteristics and determines health of the radio by analyzing whether the measured characteristics transmitted are within the respective thresholds of the values, and concludes that health is acceptable if the measured characteristics are within the thresholds, and concludes that health is unacceptable if at least one measured characteristic is outside a threshold.

  • Patent number: 11193751
    Abstract: Interferometric measurement signals are detected by a single optical interferometric interrogator for a length of a sensing light guide and an interferometric measurement data set corresponding to the interferometric measurement signals is generated. The interferometric measurement data set is transformed into a spectral domain to produce a transformed interferometric measurement data set. The transformed interferometric measurement data set is compared to a baseline interferometric data set to identify a time-varying signal corresponding to a time-varying disturbance. The baseline interferometric data set is representative of the sensing light guide not being subjected to the time-varying disturbance. A compensating signal is determined from the time-varying signal and used to compensate at least a portion of the interferometric measurement data set for the time-varying disturbance as part of producing a measurement of the parameter.

  • Patent number: 11172370
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. Discontinuous reception (DRX) operation may be configured differently on enhanced component carriers (eCCs) than on other component carriers, including a primary cell (PCell). In some cases, a user equipment (UE) may be configured with several different eCC DRX modes. An eCC DRX configuration may, for example, be coordinated with downlink (DL) transmission time interval (TTI) scheduling so each DRX ON duration may correspond to a DL burst duration of the corresponding eCC. The eCC DRX ON durations may also be scheduled according to hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) process scheduling. In some examples, eCC DRX ON durations may be based on listen-before-talk (LBT) procedures. In some cases, eCC DRX ON durations may be configured to contain an uplink (UL) burst to enable channel state information (CSI) reporting. The eCC DRX may also be configured to minimize interruption of the PCell.

  • Patent number: 11166232
    Abstract: A method including receiving, at a mobile device, a request to provision a first geofence. Geolocation hardware on the mobile device determines a current position of the mobile device. Roads are identified within a predetermined number of turns of the current position. Corresponding speed limits applicable to the roads within the predetermined number of turns are retrieved. A predicted average speed of the mobile device is determined by averaging the corresponding speed limits A predictive geofence radius is determined based on the predicted average speed. A first predictive geofence having the predictive geofence radius is provisioned. The first predictive geofence has a third predicted duration before a second predictive geofence is provisioned by the mobile device. Provisioning the first predictive geofence and the second predictive geofence together consume less power than provisioning geofences without prediction.

  • Patent number: 11166171
    Abstract: According to an aspect, a method comprises acquiring, by a network coordinator apparatus, measurement data indicating link conditions between the access nodes and terminal devices served by the access nodes of a cellular communication system. A network coordinator apparatus builds a globally optimized operating model on the basis of the measurement data by at least simulating a change in at least one association between the access nodes and the terminal devices. Based on the measurement data, an effect of the simulated change on overall performance of the cellular communication system is determined. Upon completing the building, the network coordinator apparatus transmits one or more handover instructions for handover of an association of one or more of the terminal devices according to the built operating model.
