11/20/14 - 20140341064 - A method implemented in a user equipment configured to be used in a multi-user (MU) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) wireless communications system is disclosed. The method includes transmitting to a base station a first channel state information (CSI) report determined according to a single-user (SU) MIMO rule, and transmitting to the...

Priority rules of periodic csi reporting in carrier aggregation
11/20/14 - 20140341065 - A method of determining priority rules for periodic CSI reporting in carrier aggregation is proposed. A UE obtains channel state information (CSI) feedback for multiple downlink component carriers (CCs) in a multi-carrier wireless communication network. Each downlink CC is associated with a feedback mode, and each feedback mode comprises a...

Communication resource allocation systems and methods
11/20/14 - 20140341066 - A channel descriptor management message is transmitted on a broadcast connection to a mobile terminal. The channel descriptor management message provides a format for a frame. The frame includes a resource space. The channel descriptor management message defines a plurality of channels within the resource space and allocates at least...
