  • Patent number: 11621748
    Abstract: A method for controlling an antenna array includes determining, based on a beamstate, an initial weight vector of excitations. The initial weight vector is transformed into an active-impedance vector. When the modulus of any element of the active-impedance vector exceeds a threshold, the initial weight vector is unsafe. In this case, a substitute weight vector is identified such that (i) the initial and substitute weight vectors have a similarity measure that exceeds a similarity threshold and (ii) the substitute weight vector is safe. The antenna array may then be driven according to the substitute weight vector to emit radiation having a radiation pattern that approximates that of the beamstate. The substitute weight vector may be found by searching a library of safe weight vectors or by adjusting the excitations of the initial weight vector until a safe alternative is found.

  • Patent number: 11546101
    Abstract: A cloud-based Wi-Fi network architecture consisting of a CU and RAUs is proposed as an improvement on the conventional Wi-Fi architecture with traditional access points (APs). In addition, a method for uplink data transmission in a cloud-based Wi-Fi network is proposed. In a conventional Wi-Fi network with independently operating APs, APs close to each other may not be able to utilize the same frequency band efficiently because of significant amounts of interference. However, in a cloud-based Wi-Fi network, the CU coordinates RAUs so that they can operate in the same frequency band by transmitting or receiving signals through the shared wireless medium to improve spectral efficiency. For each frequency band, the proposed system utilizes a diversity combining that combines multiple signals and introduces a single improved signal with high signal-to-noise ratio for uplink transmission in the cloud-based Wi-Fi network.

    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. Generally, the described techniques provide for efficiently reporting channel state feedback for a set of subbands. As an example, a user equipment (UE) may receive a set of reference signals on the set of subbands and determine a respective channel quality indicator (CQI) index for each of the set of subbands based on the reference signals. The UE may then transmit indications of CQI indices for different subbands of the set using variable length indications, such as indications that include different numbers of bits. Since, in some examples, a small length or number of bits may be allocated for reporting CQI indices with a high probability of being reported, overhead in a wireless communications system may be reduced.

  • Patent number: 11431374
    Abstract: A circuit arrangement for amplifying radio signals between a terminal device and an antenna and to a corresponding circuit arrangement is disclosed. The circuit arrangement has a transmission amplifier path and a reception amplifier path. A signal power in a first frequency range in the transmitting direction is detected to determine a transmitted signal power and a signal power in a second frequency range in the receiving direction is detected to determine a received signal power. The detected transmitted signal power can be compared with the detected received signal power. If the detected transmitted signal power is stronger than the detected received signal power, the transmission amplifier path can amplify transmitted signals in the first frequency range. If the detected received signal power is stronger than the detected transmitted signal power, the reception amplifier path can amplify received signals in the second frequency range.

  • Patent number: 11405061
    Abstract: A network node obtains, via a transmission and reception point (TRP) and from a terminal device not served by the network node, a packet comprising channel state information feedback indicating that a further packet is expected to be transmitted from the TRP on a downlink within a predefined time interval. The network node initiates transmission via the downlink of the TRP responsive to the channel state information feedback such that the transmission interferes with an uplink of the terminal device by less than a threshold amount during the predefined time interval.

  • Patent number: 11368919
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. Techniques for multiple transmission reception points (TRPs) in a cluster may coordinate scheduling and communications with a user equipment (UE). Different TRPs may allocate uplink resources for one or more UEs within a coordinated cluster to transmit feedback information. A first TRP may provide a first set of resources that one or more associated UEs may use to transmit acknowledgment (ACK) feedback to indicate successful receipt of a downlink transmission of the first TRP, and one or more other TRPs of the coordinated cluster may provide a second set of resources that the one or more UEs may use to transmit negative acknowledgment (NACK) feedback to indicate that a downlink transmission of the first TRP was lost. The second set of resources may include non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) resources.

  • Patent number: 11349550
    Abstract: An integrated terrestrial/non-terrestrial network may allow for enhanced network coverage. However, there are control and management challenges associated with an integrated terrestrial/non-terrestrial network because the network and user equipments (UEs) are no longer confined to only using conventional cellular communication via terrestrial transmit-and-receive points (T-TRPs). One challenge is how to perform beam management. In some embodiments, methods and systems are disclosed in which an indication of angular direction (e.g. beam direction) is provided by the T-TRP. The indication of angular direction may be used by a UE for communicating with a non-terrestrial TRP (NT-TRP), e.g. using beamforming. However, the methods are not limited to integrated terrestrial/non-terrestrial networks or the involvement of NT-TRPs, but apply more generally to indicating angular direction for directional communication.

  • Patent number: 11329709
    Abstract: An apparatus and a method for configuring antenna arrays for scalable radio frequency (RF) architecture are dis-closed. A subset of antenna arrays are grouped into K groups and a receive or transmit weight vector is applied to each of the antenna arrays in each of the K groups. A channel response is measured for each of the antenna in the K groups. The response is summed for each group and complex scaling factors are calculated based on the summed response. Based on the scaling factors the antenna weight vectors arc updated and the updated weight vectors arc applied to the antenna arrays. The steps of grouping the antennas and refining the weight vectors are performed till the antenna weight vectors reach a steady point, i.e. the current antenna weight does not improve the beamforming gain by a predetermined threshold in comparison to the previous antenna weight.
