A method and apparatus for radio link synchronization and power control in CELL_FACH state and idle mode are disclosed. A wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) transmits a random access channel (RACH) preamble and receives an acquisition indicator acknowledging the RACH preamble via an acquisition indicator channel (AICH) and an index to an enhanced dedicated channel (E-DCH) resource. The WTRU determines a start of an E-DCH frame. An F-DPCH timing offset is defined with respect to one of the RACH access slot and an AICH access slot carrying the acquisition indicator. A relative F-DPCH timing offset may be signaled to the WTRU and the WTRU may determine a start of an E-DCH frame based on the relative F-DPCH timing offset and timing of an AICH access slot including the acquisition indicator. The WTRU may transmit a dedicated physical control channel (DPCCH) power control preamble before starting an E-DCH transmission.


A wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) receives a downlink subframe having multiple component carriers, each component carrier having control information encoded in a physical data control channel (PDCCH). The WTRU performs a blind decoding of control information in a first PDCCH located within a first component carrier to obtain a location of a second PDCCH located within a second component carrier, where the location of the second PDCCH is relative to a location of the first PDCCH as control channel element offset. The WTRU decodes the second PDCCH at the obtained location.


A method and apparatus are described. A method includes determining whether the apparatus is in a coverage enhancement (CE) mode or a non-CE mode. The method further includes receiving a CE-system information block (CE-SIB) on a physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH) based on at least one of a known location or at least one known parameter for the CE-SIB, on a condition that the WTRU is determined to be in the CE mode.

A wireless transmit receive unit (WTRU) may be operated in a first scheduling mode for device-to-device communication. In the first scheduling mode, a network entity may schedule resources to be used by the WTRU for device-to-device communications. The WTRU may detect that a radio link failure (RLF) timer is running or has been started. The WTRU may switch from the first scheduling mode for device-to-device communication to a second scheduling mode for device-to-device communication in response to detecting that the radio link failure timer is running or has been started. In the second scheduling mode, the WTRU may select a resource from a resource pool for the WTRU to use for one or more device-to-device communications.

A method for performing measurements in a device with at least two radio access technologies (RATs) is disclosed. The method may include establishing a first measurement schedule on a first RAT, and establishing a first transmission schedule for a second RAT. The method may further include changing at least one of the first measurement schedule or the first transmission schedule to prevent measurements of the first measurement schedule from occurring contemporaneously with transmissions of the first transmission schedule. Transmissions from the second RAT may interfere with measurements on the first RAT. The method may include transitioning from the first measurement mode to a second measurement mode based determining the second RAT is operating on potentially interfering frequency.


An Internet Protocol (IP) multimedia subsystem (IMS) network node receives a first collaborative session control signaling from a first wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) for an existing IMS collaborative session between at least the first WTRU and a second WTRU. The first WTRU is the initial controller of the session. The IMS network node detects that the first collaborative session control signaling from the first WTRU is degraded, and responsively initiates transfer of control of the session to the second WTRU at least in part by: transmitting an IMS-network-node-initiated collaborative session control transfer request to the second WTRU, receiving an acceptance from the second WTRU, and receiving a second collaborative session control signaling for the session from the second WTRU. The session is maintained, at least in part, through the IMS network node both before and after the second WTRU becomes the new controller.

Systems, methods, and instrumentalities are disclosed to desynchronize transmissions in group-based operations. A group user equipment (UE), e.g., a UE that is a member of a group of UEs, may be in an inactive mode. The group UE may receive a multicast message indicating that the group UE may enter an active mode. For example, the group UE may use the active mode for periodic reporting of its monitoring activity to the network. The multicast message may indicate a mechanism for the group UE to use to send an uplink transmission to the network. The group UE may send the uplink transmission to the network at a transmission time indicated by the mechanism. The transmission time may be desynchronized from other UEs in the group.

A method and apparatus for providing for full-duplex (FD) operation in time division duplex (TDD) communications are disclosed herein. A wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU) may receive an indication of a first, UL heavy, TDD uplink (UL)/downlink (DL) configuration and an indication of a second, DL heavy, TDD UL/DL configuration. The WTRU may also receive a grant in a common DL subframe. The WTRU may apply the hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) process timing associated with one of the TDD UL/DL configurations for DL HARQ feedback. Also, the WTRU may monitor a set of subframes for a UL or a DL grant. Further, the WTRU may receive a grant in a subframe which may include an indication of a reference TDD UL/DL configuration. The WTRU may then apply the HARQ process timing associated with the reference TDD UL/DL configuration for DL HARQ feedback.


Methods, apparatuses and systems may be used to populate and utilize content in distributed network attachment point (NAP) caches with the help of a statistical cache report synchronization scheme that may be tuned in terms of bandwidth consumption for the synchronization and overall surety of the retrieval requests, and therefore, the incurred penalty in terms of latency. One example references a particular statistical synchronization scheme based on a Bloom filter reconciliation set technique. Each NAP of a plurality of NAPs may receive a list of unique NAP identifiers (NAPIds) of neighboring NAPs at regular intervals. A first NAP may receive a first content request for a requested content. On a condition that the requested content is not located in a caching database of the first NAP, the first NAP may determine the NAPId of a second NAP likely holding the requested content and issue a content request.


Systems, methods, and instrumentalities are disclosed to enable Machine Type Communication (MTC) group communication in 3 GPP. For example, a wireless transmit/receive unit may be used for MTC group communication. The WTRU may contain a processor configured to receive a trigger, such as an SMS trigger. The WTRU may contact a server, such as an Application Server or Proximity based Service function. The WTRU may request additional information from a server. The WTRU may receive information from a server. The WTRU may trigger one or more WTRUs, for example, based on the information received from the server.
