Multiple wireless devices in a network perform full duplex communication in which the transmission path and receiving path are spatially separated to allow simultaneous transmission and receiving. The wireless devices can either be controlled using a centralized, or point, coordination function or a distributed coordination function. A full-duplex wireless device senses the medium during transmission by itself and selectively continues the transmission when a signal is sensed on the medium. A full-duplex wireless device measures signal being transmitted by its transmitter and estimates parameters that can be used to cancel the contribution of the locally transmitted signal to the locally received signal concurrently being received during the transmission. The transmit antenna and the receive antenna of a full-duplex wireless device can be configured to be spatially isolated from each other to minimize interference between the antenna functions.

The present invention relates to a method for energy aware radio technologies power sharing. A User Equipment (UE) derive the energy required for their operation from batteries. Energy efficiency of these UEs is very important to their usability. Optimal management of the UE power consumption is critical. The biggest energy consumption in a UE is the radio technologies. Energy aware power sharing includes multiple radio access technology (RAT) coordination that deactivates RAT for power sharing of radio resources. Specifically, the invention relates to energy aware radio technologies, consisting of a method to deactivate UE RAT components for power sharing of radio resources using radio resource management (RRM) measurements.

A spatial channel state information (CSI) feedback technique is incorporated into multiple-input multiple-output mobile communications technologies. User equipment (UE) channel conditions are measured and, based on the measurements, codebook subsets are selected to which indices are assigned and fed back to a base station.

A method of selecting resource element for UCI transmission and countering a ping-pong effect includes adjusting transmission parameters without adjusting a channel quality indicator/pre-coding matrix index. The transmission parameters include a modulation coding set of a transport block and a transport block size. Another method of selecting resource element for UCI transmission and countering the ping-pong effect includes selecting a transport block having a highest modulation coding set index or the transport block having a lowest modulation coding set index. Alternatively, the evolved Node B may select the transport block having a largest size or the transport block having the smallest size.

A method of processing the measurements of the user equipment (UE) antenna pattern for Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) Over-the-Air (OTA) testing consistent with the UE performing antenna pattern measurements using radiated test methods subsequent to conducted testing where the measured radiation pattern is then utilized. The method involves antenna pattern measurements which do not take into consideration the impact of radiated interference. For the MIMO OTA method it is necessary to estimate UE self-interference so that it can be accounted for during one phase of the throughput measurement process. A preferred method and a system in a packet switched data transfer system for antenna pattern measurements. A multiple Rx antenna UE is provided. A multiple Rx antenna UE includes a processor configured to promote antenna pattern measurements of a signal strength from a network component to the multiple Rx antenna UE. The signal strength of the advanced technology based network is measured when no user data is being transmitted. The invention deals with at least two different measurements: UE received power and relative phase measurements for multiple Rx antenna UEs.

An outdoor radio communication system housed in a single enclosure comprises a first transceiver, a second transceiver, a communication interface unit, an RF in-phase transmit combiner, an antenna coupling unit and a receive filter. The first transceiver includes a first receiver and a first transmitter. The second transceiver includes a second receiver and a second transmitter. The two transceivers are communicatively coupled with the communication interface unit. The RF in-phase transmit combiner, communicatively coupled to the first transmitter and the second transmitter, receives a phase-aligned RF signal from each transmitter, to create a third RF signal with enhanced signal gain. The two phase-aligned RF signals originate from the same source in the communication interface unit. The antenna coupling unit is communicatively coupled to the RF in-phase transmit combiner and the first receiver, and the receive filter is communicatively coupled to the second receiver.
