Abstract

Systems and methods for allocating resources of an air interface. In one embodiment, a base station communicates with a plurality of User Equipment (UE) within a cell over an air interface. The base station selects a UE group from the UEs in the cell to share a physical downlink control channel, selects a slot format for the UE group, and identifies a slot format indicator for the UE group. The base station generates a group ID for the UE group so that a combination of the group ID and the slot format indicator indicates a slot format value that is mapped to the selected slot format for the UE group, provides the group ID to the UE group, and transmits the slot format indicator on the physical downlink control channel to the UE group.

Abstract

Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to a method and device for block partitioning of repetitions. In example embodiments, it is determined whether a time length from a starting time point of the plurality of repetitions to a transmission stopping time point is below a first threshold length. If it is determined that the time length is below the first threshold length, it is determined whether the time length exceeds a second threshold length, the second threshold length being less the first threshold length. If it is determined that the time length exceeds the second threshold length, the plurality of repetitions are partitioning based on a reference block length into a block and a truncated block, the block having the reference block length and the truncated block having a truncated block length shorter than the reference block length. In this way, higher and much more stable demodulation performance and receiving performance may be achieved.

Abstract

To establish a multi-AP RRC connection with a user device UD the UD in the coverage area of multiple APs selects suitable ones as cluster set candidates and reports this list to a temporary serving AP the UD chooses. The multi-AP connection itself is setup by the cluster set manager CSM. The CSM collects information from each AP about control channels and load in order to choose which APs will be in the cluster, which will be the serving AP, and to setup the multi-AP connection with the UD. Multiple message exchanges are described for this purpose. Once the multi-AP connection is established, if the UD's connection with the serving AP fails the UD can handover to another AP of the cluster set without having to re-establish a new RRC connection. This is particularly useful for networks subject to severe shadowing effects such as mmWave 5G.

Abstract

Systems and methods are provided to allow for the use of existing satellite identification parameters generically, so as to allow for Global Navigation Satellite System (GLONASS) identification. In addition, an optional or conditional parameter is linked to the satellite identification parameter for a frequency identification, where frequency identification is indicative of a Frequency Division Multiple Access (FDMA) frequency value. Such a frequency identification parameter is optional as it is needed only for current GLONASS and/or near-future GLONASS (e.g., GLONASS-M) satellites. Hence, utilization of the frequency identification parameter maybe unnecessary and therefore, not included/not linked when considering next generation GLONASS satellites, e.g., GLONASS-K satellites. Additionally, signals supported by particular global positioning system (GPS) satellites can be indicated with the use of generic satellite identification.

Abstract

Various communication systems may benefit from improved network management. A method may include receiving an indication of a subset of a cluster of local cells at an ultra-reliable, low latency communications user equipment using multi-connectivity. The method may also include receiving rules for radio performance monitoring, wherein the rules include a packet error rate threshold for individual radio links of the multi-connectivity. In addition, the method may include determining based on the rules and the radio performance monitoring whether to skip the monitoring of one or more cells of the subset of local cells. The skip may be short-term or long term. Further, the method may include communicating to the subset a report based on the radio performance monitoring and whether to skip the monitoring of one or more cells of the subset of local cells.

Abstract

Certain embodiments may relate to communication systems, and, for example, some embodiments may relate to multi-QoS level uplink grants. According to a first embodiment, a method may include transmitting, by a first network entity, one or more grants of one or more uplink resources to a second network entity. The one or more grants of one or more uplink resources includes one or more physical resource allocation parameters containing one or more logical channel groups. The method may further include receiving, by the first network entity, data from the second network entity allocated according to the one or more logical channel groups.

Abstract

Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to methods, apparatuses and computer program products for signal detection in a wireless communication system. A method implemented at a receiver device includes obtaining a set of received signals; determining a channel on which the set of received signals are transported; and detecting a set of transmitted signals from the set of received signals in an iterative manner based on the determined channel, a modulation mode for the set of transmitted signals, and the set of received signals, by using a gradient descent (GD) algorithm. Embodiments of the present disclosure may reduce computation complexity required in signal detection and/or improve detection performance.
