  • Publication number: 20140006890
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for retransmission processing in a communication receiver includes improving the performance of Incremental Redundancy (IR) combining and retransmission processing at minimal increased complexity. One aspect of these improvements involves the use of prior decoding results, if the decoding block quality is above a threshold value, rather than or in addition to prior demodulation results, in retransmission processing. That is, the teachings herein propose selectively using the hard bit decisions obtained from decoding previously transmitted data blocks, to improve the decoding of retransmitted data blocks.

    Abstract: Disclosed are various embodiments that provide turbo decoding implemented as at least a portion of baseband processing circuitry. An input bit stream may be divided into a set of code blocks and a first code block may be separated from the set of code blocks. A hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) process is performed on the first code block to generate a processed first code block. The processed first code block is stored in an incremental redundancy (IR) buffer. A turbo decoding process is performed on the processed first code block to generate decoded first code block data and the decoded first code block data is stored in an external memory. The processed first code block is removed from the IR buffer for decoding a remaining portion of the set of code blocks.

  • Publication number: 20130223203
    Abstract: Hybrid Automatic Repeat Request (HARQ) is implemented using multi-bit feedback and variable retransmission energy. The multi-bit feedback provides information to the transmitter about the state of the decoder so that the transmitter can adapt retransmissions to the current state of the decoder. In some embodiments, the multi-bit feedback indicates a level of convergence reached by the decoder, and the transmitter varies an amount of energy used for the retransmission as a function of the multi-bit feedback. The transmitter can vary the amount of energy applied to the retransmission by varying the number of bits in the retransmission, or by varying a transmit power used for the retransmission.

The cloud-based solutions may be scalable and implemented in a fault-tolerant distributed system to support user-facing continuous sensing and processing services in the cloud-computing system. A system may monitor execution of data and shift workloads (i.e., balancing) in response to spatial and temporal load imbalances that occur in a continuous computing environment. A failure recovery protocol may be implemented that uses a checkpoint-based partial rollback recovery mechanism with selective re-execution, which may allow recovery of the continuous processing after an error while avoiding large amounts of downtime and re-execution.

The first and second polynomials are each different from each other. The encoder forms a first packet of code symbols, having a first code rate, based on bits from the first output bit stream. A transmitter transmits the first packet. A receiver receives a first negative acknowledgment indicating unsuccessful decoding of the first packet after said transmitting of the first packet. The encoder punctures bits from the second output bit stream and forms a second packet of code symbols having a second code rate. The second code rate is different from the first code rate. The transmitter transmits the second packet in response to the receiver receiving the first negative acknowledgment.

    Abstract: In one implementation, a method of distributing a multicast message in a wireless mesh network includes receiving a multicast message from a parent node of an intermediate node. The method includes transmitting the multicast message to child nodes of the intermediate node. The method includes storing the multicast message in a cache at the intermediate node. The method includes intercepting an acknowledgement message from each acknowledging child node within an acknowledging subset of less than all of the child nodes. The method includes accessing information indicating a population of the child nodes to which the multicast message transmission was directed. The method includes comparing the acknowledging subset of the child nodes with the population of the child nodes. The method includes identifying a non-acknowledging subset of less than all of the child nodes. The method includes retransmitting the multicast message to the non-acknowledging subset of the child nodes.

    Abstract: The present invention discloses a rate matching method and device. The method includes that: an information bit sequence is coded and interleaved to obtain a mother code codeword with a length NFB—Buffer; and bits are selected from the mother code codeword to generate a hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) subpacket for current transmission. By means of the present invention, the effect of covering the whole mother code area can be achieved as much as possible, and the performance of the HARQ multiple retransmission link can be enhanced.

  • Publication number: 20120084616
    Abstract: One feature provides a Block Acknowledgement Retransmission Policy (BARP) frame that permits a transmitter to define a retransmission policy on a per-frame basis for frames transmitted in a block of frames. A block acknowledgement retransmission policy (BARP) frame is generated by a transmitter that individually identifies a retransmission policy for each frame in a block of frames. The BARP frame is then transmitted to a receiver, allowing the receiver to know which frames within a block of frames will be retransmitted and which frames will not be retransmitted.

    Abstract: A method for providing error-resilient video content may include receiving video data reflective of multiple video frames and encoding the video data to generate a plurality of packets. The method may also include transmitting the first group of packets to at least two receivers and receiving feedback information regarding receiving status of respective ones of the plurality of packets, the feedback information being indicative of packets not received correctly. The method may further include examining error indications based on the feedback information and implementing a first error-correction policy if a variation in the error indications among the at least two receivers is below a first error threshold and a second error-correction policy if the variation is above the first error threshold. At least one of the first and second error-correction policies may include transmitting or retransmitting at least one packet using a different coding scheme.

    Abstract: Various embodiments implement distributed block coding (DBC). DBC can be used for, among other things, distributed forward error correction (DFEC) of source data in communication systems or parity backup for error correction of source data in storage systems where the source data may be corrupted by burst errors. A distributed block encoder (DBE) encodes sequential source data symbols with a plurality of sequential block encoders to produce interleaved parity codewords. The interleaved parity codewords enable decoding of error-corrected source data symbols with a distributed block decoder (DBD) that utilizes a plurality of sequential block decoders to produce the error-corrected source data symbols. A distributed register block encoder (DRBE) and a distributed register block decoder (DRBD) can each be implemented in a single block encoder and a single block decoder, respectively, by using a distributed register arrangement.

    Abstract: A method for accurately tracking fault status in a computer system. The method includes storing a prior state for a sensor associated with a component of the computer system and receiving a sensor reading. When the prior state indicates the sensor was unavailable or unreadable such as when the component was removed, the method includes resending or re-emitting a faulty event to the fault diagnosing module, e.g., after reinsertion of the component in the computer system while it is still faulty. The method may include, prior to the triggering of the resending of the faulty event, determining that the sensor is in a non-nominal state. The method may also include storing in the data storage a definition of a nominal state for the sensor such that the determining the sensor is in the non-nominal state includes comparing one or more sensor readings with the nominal state definition.
