  • 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.

    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.

  • Patent number: 10785712
    Abstract: The wireless apparatus and network node disclosed herein facilitate the selection and use of one of multiple RATs for communications between the wireless apparatus and the network node. The selected RAT provides a lower energy consumption at the wireless apparatus for the communications with the network node. To that end, the wireless apparatus selects between at least two RATs, e.g., first and second RATs, where the first and second RATs are both coordinated by a network node in communication with the wireless apparatus, and where a system bandwidth of the second RAT and a system bandwidth of the first RAT are both comprised within a third system bandwidth of a third RAT coordinated by the network node.

  • Patent number: 10771205
    Abstract: A method and a device for performing communication by using a non-orthogonal code multiple access scheme in a wireless communication system are provided. Particularly, a terminal receives control information from a base station. The terminal modulates or demodulates a terminal-specific NCC on the basis of the control information. The terminal performs the non-orthogonal code multiple access scheme by using the terminal-specific NCC. The control information includes information on a codeword composed of a Grassmannian sequence. The codeword is included in a codebook predefined for the non-orthogonal code multiple access scheme. Each coefficient of the Grassmannian sequence is quantized on the basis of an M-quadrature amplitude modulation (M-QAM) constellation.

  • Patent number: 10716070
    Abstract: A wireless device determines a total transmission power for transmission of uplink signals in a subframe of subframes of an uplink transmission burst. A transmission power value of an uplink signal of the uplink signals is scaled, based on a subframe position of the subframe in the subframes of the uplink transmission burst, in response to the total transmission power exceeding a first value so that an updated total transmission power does not exceed the first value. The uplink signal is transmitted in the subframe and with the transmission power value.

  • Patent number: 10693323
    Abstract: A power transmitter (101) inductively transferring power to a power receiver (105) comprises a resonance circuit (201) comprising a transmitter coil (103). A driver (203) generates a drive signal for the resonance circuit (201) and a data receiver (513) receives messages load modulated onto a power transfer signal by the power receiver (105) during communication time intervals. An error unit (507) determines a coil current error and a control loop (511) controls the current through the transmitter coil (103) in response to the coil current error with the control loop (511) being active during the communication time intervals. A loop response of the control loop is attenuated for coil current errors in a reduced control range relative to coil current error indications outside the reduced control range, where the reduced control range includes a zero coil current error.

  • Patent number: 10673571
    Abstract: A robust network telemetry repeater system exploits the repeater structure of data propagation and transmission and reception bi-directionality to increase network robustness. For example, multiple perceived receive attempts are created with no additional overhead. The system can be configured whereby nodes “hear” the transmissions of both adjacent and non-adjacent nodes forming implicit acknowledgement (“Acks”), and originating nodes can retransmit until implicit acknowledgments (“Acks”) are “heard,” indicating a successful link relay. Implicit acknowledgment can be applied to bidirectional networks, and bidirectional action can enable all nodes in the network to know the status of all other nodes.

  • Patent number: 10637570
    Abstract: The disclosure provides a communication system that includes sensors, a plurality of components, and processors. The sensors receive measurements related to a state of the communication system. The processors receive an indication of an amount of received power at a remote communication system and estimate a state of the plurality of components based on the received one or more measurements and the received indication. Using the indication and the estimated state, the processors determine whether the amount of received power is likely to fall below a minimum received power within a given time interval. When it is likely, the processors select an adjustment technique of a plurality of adjustment techniques for adjusting a data rate of the outbound signal and adjust a given component of the communication system using the selected adjustment technique to change the data rate of the outbound signal.
