Accordingly, the operator is provided with a mechanism to monitor a plurality of network functions at the same time on a single user-interface display.

  • Clock data recovery and synchronization in interconnected devices

    For synchronizing a master device and a slave device connected by a data transfer link, the master device measures a phase offset in a signal received from the slave device with respect to the master's clock signal. The master determines a control symbol based on the phase offset. The master encodes the control symbol in a transmit signal for the slave. The slave decodes the control symbol from the signal received from the master. The slave uses the control symbol to adjust the phase shift to compensate for the phase offset of a signal to be transmitted to the master device. When the phase compensated signal is received at the master, its phase offset is smaller than the original phase offset. This procedure can be performed iteratively until the phase offset is within a desired tolerance.

  • Symmetric Multi-Processor System

    The present invention relates generally to computer operating systems, and more specifically, to operating system calls in a symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) environment.

  • HIGH-SPEED PULSED HOMODYNE DETECTOR IN TELECOM BAND

    [Object] It is to raise operational frequency and S/N ratio of the pulsed homodyne detector to measure the quadrature amplitude of the signal pulse light. [Solution] The local pulse light in telecom band is yielded at repetition rate of 80 MHz. Two output lights are generated by interference of the local pulse light and the signal pulse light. The first photodiode and the second photodiode are connected differentially. The first photodiode converts one side output light to an electric signal. The second photodiode converts the other side output light to another electric signal. The M-derived low-pass filter eliminates the third harmonics of the local pulse light. Moreover, the higher frequency components than triple frequency of the repetition rate are eliminated. In this way, even when it is operated at high repetition rate of 80 MHz at maximum, the quadrature amplitude of the signal pulse light can be measured with high quantum efficiency of about 90% and with S/N ratio of more than 10 dB.

  • Methods and Devices for Uplink Multi-Antenna Transmissions in a Telecommunication System

    The disclosure relates to controlling uplink transmissions according to closed loop multi-antenna techniques such as closed loop uplink transmit diversity and uplink multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO). An exemplary method for use in a user equipment (81) configured for multi-antenna transmissions comprises a step of estimating (62) reception quality of a physical channel carrying pre-coding weight information to the user equipment (61). The method further comprises a step of determining (64) that the reception quality of the physical channel is inferior if the estimated reception quality is below a threshold and otherwise considering (65) the reception quality of the physical channel to be sufficient, in a further step the UE (61) applies (52) the pre-coding weight information received on the physical channel for uplink transmission only if the reception quality of the physical channel is considered to be sufficient

  • Telecommunication System Using Multiple Nyquist Zone Operations

    Telecommunication systems using multiple Nyquist zone operations are provided. In one aspect, a telecommunication system can include a first section and a second section. The first section can receive signals from at least one transmitting base station or transmitting terminal device. The received signals have frequencies in multiple frequency bands. The first section can also sample the received signals such that the received signals are aliased. The first section can also combine the aliased signals from the frequency bands into a combined frequency band in a common Nyquist zone. The second section can extract signals from the combined frequency band. The extracted signals are to be transmitted at frequencies in a frequency band from a Nyquist zone that is different than the common Nyquist zone. The second section can also transmit the extracted signals to at least one receiving base station or receiving terminal device.

  • Methods and Network Nodes in a Telecommunication System

    A method in a user equipment (140) for controlling transmission from the user equipment (140), a method in a first radio network node (110) for selecting one or more radio emission control parameters and a user equipment (140) and a first radio network node (110) configured to perform the methods are provided. The user equipment (140) sends (C001), to the first radio network node (110), one or more parameters associated with supported duplexer arrangement characteristics of the user equipment (140) for a first operating frequency band. The first radio network node (110) selects (C004) said one or more radio emission control parameters based on said one or more parameters associated with said supported duplexer arrangement characteristics of the user equipment (140) for the first operating frequency band. The user equipment (140) receives (C005) and applies (C006) said one or more radio emission control parameters from the first radio network node (110) such as to control transmission from the user equipment (140).

  • METHOD FOR CALLING UP A MEDIA FILE IN A TELECOMMUNICATION SYSTEM, COMPUTER PROGRAM PRODUCT FOR EXECUTING THE METHOD, ANDTELECOMMUNICATION SYSTEM FOR CALLING UP THE MEDIA FILE

    A method for calling up a media file wherein the content of the called up media file is presented unrequested to the user of one of the multiple telecommunication terminals via a connection established with a telecommunication terminal includes provisioning of an interface in the telecommunication control unit such that the media file stored outside a telecommunication system can be accessed via the interface. The establishment of the connection can also include installation of a media assignment target in the telecommunication control unit central to the telecommunication system, selection of the media assignment target by one of the multiple telecommunication terminals and placement of a link to the media file in the telecommunication control unit by means of which the media file is assigned, and call-up of the media file by the telecommunication control unit via the interface using the link placed in the telecommunication control unit.

  • System and Method for Providing Detection of Signaling-Only Engagements in a Telecommunication Network

    A network server may be configured to prevent user equipment (UE) from communicating payload information across a telecommunication network without paying for the access or use of the network. This may be accomplished by the network server receiving signaling information relating to the UE from a first network component, receiving data plane information relating to the UE from a second network component, determining whether the UE is a signaling-only device based on the received information, and performing a responsive operation when it is determined that the user equipment device is a signaling-only device. The responsive operation may include applying a policy rule to the signaling communications of the UE when it is determined that the UE is a signaling-only device. The policy rule may be charging rule that causes a charging system to bill a subscriber account or a network access rule that blocks the signaling communications of the UE.

  • System and Method for Controlling Advanced Triggering Operations in a Telecommunication Network

    A network server may be configured to communicate triggers across a telecommunication network by receiving a trigger communication message that includes information suitable for causing a destination machine-to-machine device to perform operations in response to receiving the trigger communication message, receiving policy or charging information from a component in the telecommunication network, determining whether the trigger communication message should be sent to the destination machine-to-machine based on the received policy or charging information, and sending the trigger communication message to the destination component only when it is determined that the trigger communication message should be sent to the destination machine-to-machine based on the received policy or charging information.
