  • Assignee:
    QUALCOMM Incorporated - San Diego CA
  • International Classification:
    H04W 24/00
  • US Classification:
    4554221
  • Abstract:
    In an embodiment, a user equipment (UE) determines that a client application has entered a period of transmission inactivity whereby the UE will not be required to transmit data on behalf of the client application. The UE selectively transmits a transmission inactivity notification to an access network (AN) to notify the AN of the transmission inactivity period. The AN receives the transmission inactivity notification and determines to transition the UE from a first state to a second state based at least in part on the received transmission inactivity notification, the second state associated with lower-power consumption of the UE than the first state. The AN sends instructions to the UE to facilitate the transition of the UE from the first state to the second state. In another embodiment, the AN can send instructions to the UE to prohibit the UE from sending transmission inactivity notifications.

  • International Classification:
    H04W 4/00
  • US Classification:
    455434, 370328
  • Abstract:
    Systems and methodologies are described herein that facilitate improved cell search and selection in a wireless communication system. For example, a terminal as described herein can utilize one or more Closed Subscriber Group (CSG)-specific offset and/or hysteresis parameters as described herein to increase the amount of time on which the terminal is allowed to camp on a desirable cell. Additionally, specialized reselection timing can be employed as described herein to increase a delay associated with selecting a Home Node B (HNB) or Home Evolved Node B (HeNB) cell, thereby reducing power consumption associated with rapid cell reselection operations in a densely populated network environment. Further, a two-step reselection process can be performed as described herein in the context of selecting a frequency for cell reselection, thereby mitigating the effects of rapid reselection between cells and/or frequencies due to CSG cell prioritization.

  • US Patent:
    8626162, Jan 7, 2014
  • Filed:
    Jun 4, 2009
  • Appl. No.:
    12/478494
  • Inventors:
    Manoj M. Deshpande - San Diego CA, US

  • Assignee:

  • International Classification:
    H04W 4/00
  • US Classification:
    4554351, 455434, 455525, 455 6711, 370338, 370329
  • Abstract:
    Systems and methodologies are described that facilitate distributing and/or utilizing a Closed Subscriber Group (CSG) Identifier (ID) that identifies a CSG corresponding to a base station and a CSG indication that distinguishes between the base station permitting access to members of the CSG and permitting access to members and non-members of the CSG. For instance, the CSG ID can uniquely identify the CSG corresponding to the base station. A mobile device can receive the CSG ID and the CSG indication from the base station. Further, the received CSG ID can be compared to CSG IDs included in an allowed CSG list to recognize whether the mobile device is a member or a non-member of the CSG. Moreover, a preference for selecting the base station as compared to a disparate base station can be generated as a function of the received CSG ID and CSG indication.

  • US Patent:
    20080311900, Dec 18, 2008
  • Filed:
    Jun 12, 2008
  • Appl. No.:
    12/138056
  • Inventors:
    Francesco Pica - San Diego CA, US
    Andrea Garavaglia - Nuremberg, DE
    Long Duan - San Diego CA, US
  • Assignee:
    QUALCOMM Incorporated - San Diego CA
  • International Classification:
    H04Q 7/34
    H04Q 7/22
  • US Classification:
    455423, 4554352
  • Abstract:
    To determine a cell for usage in wireless communication, a signal-to-noise ratio or a signal-to-power ratio can be used in selecting an appropriate cell. However, cell selection can also configure to take both signal-to-noise ratio and signal-to-power ratio into account. Multiple available cells can be analyzed and a highest ranking cell can be selected through balancing the aforementioned ratios. In addition, to minimize transferring between cells, a limitation can be placed such that a cell is not left unless there is better of both the aforementioned ratios at another cell.
  • Favoring Access Points In Wireless Communications

  • US Patent:
    20090137249, May 28, 2009
  • Filed:
    Nov 12, 2008
  • Appl. No.:
    12/269619
  • Inventors:
    Gavin B. Horn - La Jolla CA, US
    Fatih Ulupinar - San Diego CA, US
    Parag A. Agashe - San Diego CA, US
    Rajat Prakash - La Jolla CA, US

  • Assignee:
    QUALCOMM Incorporated - San Diego CA
  • International Classification:
    H04W 36/08
  • US Classification:
    4554352
  • Abstract:
    Systems and methodologies are described that facilitate applying offsets and/or selectable hysteresis values to favor access points in cell reselection. In measuring and ranking surrounding access points in reselection, offsets can be applied to favorable access points to facilitate cell reselection thereto. The offset can positively affect measurements, and thus ranking as well, in some cases. Negative offsets can also be applied to lower measurements (and thus ranking) of some access points. Moreover, hysteresis values can be applied in measuring current cells to prevent frequent reselection. The hysteresis values can be selected based on a type of the current cell or related access point to expand the coverage area where desired. Thus, where the current access point is favorable, a larger hysteresis can be added to measurements related to the current access point.
