Abstract

Generating a channel state informal ion (CSI) feedback report is provided. A set of reference signals is received (1302). A plurality of entries that are included in the CSI feedback report are computed (1304), where the entries of the CSI feedback report include at leas: a set of coefficients (1306). Each coefficient is associated with at least one or more of a spatial domain basis index, frequency domain basis index, and a layer index (1308). The plurality of entries of the CSI feedback report are arranged (1310) in an order known to both the user equipment and the network entity. The plurality of entries of the CSI feedback report are prioritized using predefined permutations of the indices (1314).

Abstract

Apparatuses, methods, and systems are disclosed for determining whether an active unicast session can be re-used. One apparatus includes a transceiver and a processor that receives, e.g., from an internal application or operating system, a first request to establish a unicast session over a direct communication link to a first UE. Here, the first request indicates a source application-layer identifier of the apparatus and a target application-layer identifier of the first UE. The processor determines whether an active unicast session between the source application-layer identifier and the target application-layer identifier already exists. If an active unicast session between the source application-layer identifier and the target application-layer identifier already exists, then the processor re-uses the already-existing active unicast session. Otherwise, the processor establishes a new unicast session between the apparatus and the first UE.

Abstract

A configuration of a first search space for monitoring control channel candidates over a first set of symbols can be transmitted. A configuration of an alternative set of search spaces containing at least a second search space for monitoring control channel candidates over a second set of symbols can be transmitted. Control channel candidates can be monitored in the first search space when an uplink transmission does not overlap with the first set of symbols. Control channel candidates can be monitored in the second search space instead of the first search space when the uplink transmission overlaps with the first set of symbols. Downlink control information scheduling an uplink transmission over a third set of symbols can be transmitted, where a determination is made as to whether the uplink transmission overlaps with the first set of symbols.

Abstract

In one aspect, a first device may include at least one processor and storage accessible to the at least one processor. The storage may include instructions executable by the at least one processor to load a driver responsive to a boot command, where the driver may be loaded prior to the first device loading a guest operating system (GOS) stored at the first device. The instructions may then be executable to use the driver to communicate with a second device to receive a disk image over a wired connection to the second device. The instructions may be further executable to continue booting the first device using the disk image rather than the GOS and to, responsive to the first device being booted using the disk image, communicate with the second device over the wired connection to diagnose one or more issues with the first device.

An indication of a downlink allocation for receiving a downlink signal is further received. A higher order intermodulation product, which is co-located with a lower order intermodulation product for the first and second allocations resulting from any respective higher order and lower order transceiver nonlinearities is identified. A determination is then made as to whether the co-located higher order intermodulation products have a region of overlap with the downlink allocation. When the co-located higher order intermodulation products have a region of overlap with the downlink allocation, adjustments in the operation are made to account for the overlap of the higher order intermodulation product and the downlink allocation.

Abstract

For updating the password of a credential with a matching username, methods, apparatus, and systems are disclosed. One method includes storing a set of credentials, each credential in the set comprising a username and password. The method includes detecting an update to a first credential of the set of credentials, the first credential comprising a first username and a first stored password. Here, the update to the first credential indicates a new password to be associated with the first username. The method includes identifying a set of candidate credentials, each candidate credential having a username that matches the first username and a password that matches the stored password and updating the set of candidate credentials to comprise the new password.

Abstract

Apparatuses, methods, and systems are disclosed for access network selection for UEs not supporting NAS over non-3GPP access. One apparatus includes a processor and a transceiver for communicating with one or more non-3GPP access networks. The processor creates a first list of available PLMNs, each PLMN connectable via a non-3GPP access network without using a NAS protocol. The processor selects a first PLMN from the first list and selects a first network slice supported by the first PLMN. Here, the first network slice is identified by a first S-NSSAI. The processor creates a second list of available non-3GPP access networks and selects a first non-3GPP access network from the second list. The processor begins a connectivity procedure over the first non-3GPP access network. Here, the connectivity procedure creates a data connection for the apparatus via the first network slice in the first PLMN, and the connectivity procedure does not use the NAS protocol.

Abstract

In one aspect, an apparatus may include a processor and storage. The storage may include instructions executable by the processor to identify an intensity of sound at a device and to command the device to output noise according to the intensity to mask the sound. In some examples, the apparatus can be different from the device and the apparatus can control multiple devices to each output noise according to the intensity of the sound at the respective device to mask the sound in an area proximate to the respective device.

Abstract

Apparatuses, methods, and systems are disclosed for measuring RTT. One apparatus 400 includes a processor 405 and a transceiver 425 that communicates 705 with a mobile core network via an interworking function. The processor transmits 710 a first request to establish a data connection between the apparatus and the mobile core network, wherein the first request includes a first indicator that the apparatus supports round trip time (“RTT”) measurements, the RTT measurements calculated using messages transmitted via the data connection and using an encapsulation header. The processor receives 715 a first message from the interworking function and transmits 720 a second message to the interworking function, wherein the first message includes a first encapsulation header comprising an echo request indication wherein the second message includes a second encapsulation header comprising an echo response indication.

Abstract

Apparatuses, methods, and systems are disclosed for data packet steering on a multi-access data connection. One apparatus 400 includes a processor 305, a first transceiver 325 and a second transceiver 330 that communicate with a mobile communication network via a first access network and a second access network, respectively. The processor 305 determines 810 to establish a multi-access data connection that includes a first user-plane connection over the first access network and a second user-plane connection over the second access network. The processor 305 receives 815 steering rules for the multi-access data connection and generates 820 a first data packet to be sent over the multi-access data connection. The processor 305 transmits 830 the first data packet over a selected one of the first and second user-plane connections, the selection based a first steering rule that applies to the first data packet.

Abstract

A system can include a first housing that includes a display and an adjustable camera, where the display includes a normal vector and where the adjustable camera includes an optical axis; a second housing that includes a keyboard, a processor and memory accessible to the processor; and a hinge assembly that rotatably couples the first housing and the second housing, where rotation of the first housing with respect to the second housing actuates adjustment of the adjustable camera to adjust the optical axis with respect to the normal vector.
