  • Patent number: 11936574
    Abstract: A system comprising a relay device that configures to a first beamforming setting for a first set of antenna arrays to establish a first link between the relay device and a source device, and a second beamforming setting to establish a second link between the relay device and a destination device. A data stream is processed based on a selection of one of a passive mode or an active mode of relay operation. In the passive mode, a received radio frequency waveform of the data stream is down-converted to an intermediate frequency waveform, re-amplified, and then up-converted for transmission without requiring any data demodulation, and in the active mode, the IF waveform is demodulated and then remodulated for the transmission. The data stream is forwarded to the destination device through the second link based on the selection of one of the passive or active mode.

  • Patent number: 11444730
    Abstract: A bandwidth part (BWP) and power scheduling method and apparatus for indoor terahertz are provided. The BWP and power scheduling method uses an intelligent reflecting surface (IRS) and a non-orthogonal multiple access (NOMA) to compensate for a shortcoming, wherein terahertz waves are not suitable for an indoor transmission, convert an indoor environment of an IRS-assisted terahertz propagation into a channel model, and convert an optimal wireless resource scheduling in an indoor IRS-assisted terahertz system into a functional optimization design with random constraints. Policies and corresponding actions are trained by using a proximal policy optimization (PPO) to schedule a power and a BWP. An actor part generates continuous a power scheduling, and a critic part generates a discrete BWP scheduling.

  • Patent number: 11330586
    Abstract: A wireless access point controls Carrier Aggregation (CA) over a wireless repeater chain. The wireless access point exchanges signaling with User Equipment (UE) over the wireless repeater chain which uses a number of repeater hops. The wireless access point selects a radio frequency for a Primary Component Carrier (PCC) based on the number of repeater hops. The wireless access point exchanges user data with the UE over the wireless repeater chain using the selected radio frequency for the PCC. The wireless access point determines uplink throughput for the user data. The wireless access point re-selects the radio frequency for the PCC based on the number of repeater hops and the uplink throughput. The wireless access point exchanges additional user data with the UE over the wireless repeater chain using the re-selected radio frequency for the PCC.

  • Patent number: 11316970
    Abstract: A set of tracking devices can be placed within a geographic area as part of a scavenger hunt. A user with a mobile device can traverse the area, and when the user moves within a threshold proximity or communicative range of a tracking device, the mobile device can receive a communication from the tracking device identifying the tracking device. In response to determining that the tracking device is part of the set of tracking devices and thus part of the scavenger hunt, the mobile device can modify a tracking device interface displaying a representation of the tracking device to indicate that the tracking device has been found. In response to each tracking device being found, the mobile device can modify the tracking device interface to indicate that the scavenger hunt has been completed.

The method comprises: a first node determining a second node of one or more transmission nodes according to a preset condition, the second node being a transmission node having the highest transmission level of the one or more transmission nodes, wherein a higher transmission level of a transmission node indicates fewer hops between the transmission node and an anchor node; and the first node establishing a connection to the second node. Thereby, each transmission node selects an appropriate node from a plurality of nodes on the basis of levels of different nodes and requests to establish a connection, thus realizing establishment of connections between different transmission nodes.
