Initially, map information and driving context information of a plurality of vehicles is maintained in a database of the vehicular message distribution entity in a communications system. Upon receiving from a first source vehicle a vehicular message comprising at least driving context information, the vehicular message distribution entity selects one or more vehicles in proximity of the first source vehicle from the plurality of vehicles based on geographical locations of said vehicles. Then, the vehicular message distribution entity further selects a first set of one or more target vehicles from the one or more vehicles based on driving context information and the map information. Finally, the vehicular message distribution entity causes sending the vehicular message to the first set using unicast transmission.

Abstract

A UE in a wireless network determines whether it has been configured with carrier(s) to be used for secondary serving cell carriers in the wireless network. The UE performs, using a selected one of the carrier(s) as a selected secondary serving cell carrier, a request for a cell on the selected secondary serving cell carrier to become a secondary serving cell for the user equipment. The UE receives a response from the cell that the request to have the cell become the secondary serving cell for the user equipment was successful. The request is received on the carrier at a cell in the wireless network to have the cell become the secondary cell for the user equipment. The cell indicates to the UE that the request to have the cell become a secondary cell for the user equipment was successful.

The prioritized list is generated based on application support capabilities of the client device. The method includes transmitting client parameters to a network server to create at least one multi-path proxy (MPP) instance. Each of the at least one WIPP instance is configured to aggregate and route data packets to a pre-defined core network link. The method further includes receiving identification information pertaining to the at least one MPP instance from the network server. Based on the identification information, the prioritized list is assigned to the at least one multi-path proxy instance to process data packets from at least one client application.

Abstract

A method and apparatus for dynamically adapting scheduling parameter(s) to achieve power savings. A user equipment may be configured with one or more offsets between scheduled PDCCH and PDSCH transmissions. The user equipment may receive from a network an indication to dynamically change these offsets. If the user equipment sleeps through a first transmission of this indication, upon next receiving the indication the user equipment may update, for example, the offset in a time domain resource allocation table. The indication to dynamically change an offset may be an indication of an offset comprising fewer slots. A change to the offset, with which downlink transmission is expected by the user equipment, may be disabled. A network node may be configured to transmit downlink traffic to the user equipment according to a configured offset and/or according to an offset the network node indicated to the user equipment.

Abstract

Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to mechanism for compensation of frequency shift. According to embodiments of the present disclosure, if the carrier frequency offset (CFO) value in a first link exceeds a predetermined threshold offset, the first device determines a further CFO value for transmitting a signal in a second link. The second device corrects the determined further CFO value and transmits another signal in the first link to indicate the corrected CFO value. In this way, fast and robust compensation for Doppler shift is achieved in initial access mode and maintain the OFDMA maintains orthogonal.
