|20100265993||SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR ULTRA WIDEBAND RADIO WIRELESS NETWORK - A virtual wireless local area network system and method utilizing impulse radio wherein transmission rates (bit rates) can vary according to the impulse radio transmission quality (signal to noise ratio) and wherein the position of the user can be determined and said user can be directed to an area of greater transmission rates and wherein a plurality of impulse radio portals can be utilized and switched between to maintain high levels of transmission rates while a user is moving within a predetermined area.||10-21-2010|
|20090086683||Method and System of Piconet Groups - A set of piconets and corresponding methods and computer programs may reduce contention time between piconets. In one embodiment, a seven-length code architecture may be used with group(s) of bands so that contention time cannot exceed 1/7 of the time. Up to seven different bands can be used within each group. When less than seven bands are used (e.g., three or six), at least one of the bands may be assigned to more than one dwell time during a time span. Alternatively, each dwell time within the time span may be assigned to a different band. The state may be changed as needed or desired. Substitution of extra bands may also be used. Using either scheme (repeated bands or changing states), a prime-number architecture can be used with a non-prime number of different bands. Simultaneous communications using at least two bands within a piconet may be used.||04-02-2009|
|20090040979||Methods and Apparatuses for Reducing Interference Using Frequency Division Multiple Access - Methods, systems, and apparatuses are described which are capable of mitigating interference between piconets. Devices on a piconet may detect a certain degree of interference. When this interference is deemed as arising from another piconet, the first piconet may cease transmitting on a set of bands while the interfering piconet may continue to transmit on this set of bands. Furthermore, the interfering piconet may cease transmitting on another orthogonal set of bands within the frequency spectrum while the original piconet continues to utilize these bands. Transmission on these sets of bands may be resumed after a predetermined time period. In this manner interference between the two piconets may be minimized.||02-12-2009|
|20090022207||Method for Generating Communication Signal Sequences Having Desirable Correlation Properties and System for Using Same - A method for generating code sequences having good correlation properties comprising steps of selecting a code length comprising a number of chips, selecting a ruler which defines the position of non-zero values within the chips, and overlaying the non-zero values with an amplitude pattern.||01-22-2009|
