20120094707Apparatuses, Systems, and Methods for Connection Establishment - A wireless communications device with a wireless module and a controller module is provided. The wireless module performs wireless transceiving to and from a service network. The controller module transmits a connection request message to the service network via the wireless module, and receives, on a downlink shared channel, a connection rejection message corresponding to the connection request message from the service network via the wireless module. Also, the controller module determines whether the connection rejection message indicates that congestion has occurred on the downlink shared channel, and retransmits the connection request message and waits to receive, on a forward access channel, a subsequent response message from the service network via the wireless module, in response to the connection rejection message indicating that congestion has occurred on the downlink shared channel.04-19-2012
20130210474Radio Channel Data and the Use Thereof - An apparatus comprises a receiver receiving wireless transmission of a real radio system from at least one base station of a radio system as a function of reception direction. The transmission comprises predetermined data. The apparatus comprises also a processing unit that forms taps of a delay profile on the basis of comparison between the data that is received and corresponding predetermined data. The processing unit estimates direction for the taps of the delay profile on the basis of a reception direction of the transmission, and forms radio channel data by associating the taps of the delay profile with the estimated direction. The radio channel data is for a radio channel model of a MIMO emulation in an OTA chamber having a plurality of antennas around a test zone where a device-under-test may be placed.08-15-2013
