20080232340Method and Transmission Unit for Adaptive Coding, Modulation and Transmittion of Data Words in a Wireless Communication System - When transmitting data from a transmission unit to a reception unit over a channel in a wireless communication system, it has been observed that there are inherent losses in throughput, especially for a channel experiencing high channel quality variations over its frequency range. To improve the throughput over such a channel, it is proposed to: estimate the quality of each subchannel of a channel, classify the subchannels into a number of quality groups based on the estimated quality, and select a code rate per quality group. This selected code rate per quality group is then used when a data word to be transmitted is coded. Simulations have shown that by grouping the subchannels into a limited number of groups, for example one to four groups depending on the channel quality variation, a high throughput could be achieved with a minimum of signaling cost in the form of extra overhead.09-25-2008

20080225821CHANNEL ACCESS ARBITRATION MECHANISM FOR WALKIE-TALKIE DEVICES - A mobile device with walkie-talkie functionality initiates a half-duplex transmission, which prompts a transmission request to be sent to a server mediating audio transmissions within channels of the network.

The access grant message may accord rights to a channel to the mobile device until the audio transmission has been sent, at which point a transmission completion message may be sent to the server. The access refusal message may also detail a list of alternately available channels and/or automatically tune the mobile device to one of said alternately available channels.09-18-2008

20100316040SPECTRAL SHAPING TO REDUCE PEAK-TO-AVERAGE RATIO IN WIRELESS COMMUNICATION - Techniques for performing spectral shaping to achieve a desired peak-to-average ratio (PAR) are described. Spectral shaping may be selectively performed for a single-carrier frequency division multiplexing (SC-FDM) signal based on one or more criteria, e.g., in transmit power limited conditions and/or if a modulation scheme with lower PAR is unavailable. At least one parameter of a window function or spectral shaping filter may also be adjusted based on at least one characteristic of the SC-FDM signal. For example, the roll-off of the spectral shaping filter may be adjusted based on the modulation scheme and/or the number of subcarriers used for the SC-FDM signal. A transmitter may perform spectral shaping on modulation symbols, if enabled, to obtain spectrally shaped symbols. Spectral shaping may be performed in the frequency domain either within an allocated bandwidth or with bandwidth expansion. The SC-FDM signal may be generated based on the spectrally shaped symbols.12-16-2010
