Abstract

Techniques are described that can be used to communicate congestion information concerning a downlink or uplink. In response to congestion on a link, a device can attempt to receive traffic on another network, scan for another node, or enter sleep mode for a time. In some cases, determination of congestion can be made based on an amount of time a packet is enqueued as well as the number of packets that experience a similar amount of enqueuing delay.

Description

    RELATED APPLICATION
  • This application claims the benefit of U.S. Provisional Application No. 61/330,837, filed May 3, 2010 (Attorney Docket No. P35030Z).

Embodiments may be used in various other apparatuses, devices, systems and/or networks.
  • FIG. 1 depicts an example of devices that can be connected using a wireless network. The network can be compliant with any variety of IEEE 802.16 or LTE. In the downstream or downlink case, generically-named transmitters 102 and/or 202 above may be interchangeably referred to as a base station (BS), enhanced Node B (eNB), or access point (AP). In this downlink case, receivers 104 and/or 204 above may be interchangeably referred to as a mobile station (MS), subscriber station (SS), user equipment (UE), or station (STA) at the system level herein. Further, the terms BS, eNB, and AP may be conceptually interchanged, depending on which wireless protocol is being used, so a reference to BS herein may also be seen as a reference to either of eNB or AP. Similarly, a reference to MS or SS herein may also be seen as a reference to either of UE or STA.
  • An MS can be implemented in a handheld personal computer, mobile telephone, set top box, or any computing device. Any type of user interface is available such as a keypad, mouse, and/or touch screen.
  • A BS can transmit signals to an MS using a downlink (DL) and receive signals from an MS using an uplink (UL). In some embodiments, a BS can determine whether DL or UL control channels are congested. For example, a DL can be considered congested if all or some percentage of control channels on the DL are allocated. For systems compliant with IEEE P802.16m draft 8 (2010) and variations and derivatives thereof, a control channel can be a control channel specified in section 16.3.5.2. For systems compliant with LTE and variations and derivatives thereof, a control channel can be a control shared channel known as Physical Downlink Control Channel (PDCCH). Similarly, an UL can be considered congested if all or some percentage of channels on the UL are allocated.
  • In some cases, to perform load balancing among BSs on a DL or UL, a BS can identify a DL or UL as congested even though not all channels on the DL or UL are allocated. The BS can offload traffic to one or more other BSs on the DL or UL.
  • FIG. 2 depicts an example of a BS-initiated congestion report signaling to an MS. In some embodiments, 1 bit can be used in a message to indicate congestion or no congestion on a DL and another 1 bit can be used in a message to indication congestion or no congestion on the UL. In some embodiments, multiple levels of congestion can be indicated in a congestion report using multiple bits transmitted in the same message or a sequence of messages. In some cases, the congestion report can indicate a percentage of the DL or UL burst usage. The percentage of the DL or UL burst usage can be indicated in one or more bits transmitted in the same message or a sequence of messages.
  • For example, the congestion report can be sent in a broadcast MAC message at the end of a primary control channel or secondary control channel message. In some cases, at the beginning of each sub-frame, a portion or field in a MAC header can indicate that a MAC message includes a congestion report and indicates a total size of the congestion report. Reserved bits in a MAC header can be used to indicate that a MAC message includes a congestion report and indicates a total size of the congestion report. The MAC message can include a Primary Super Frame header message and/or a Secondary Super Frame header. One or more bits in the reserved bits can include the congestion report. IEEE 802.16m draft 8 (2010) describes a Primary Super Frame header message (section 16.3.5.2.1.1) in a primary control channel and describes a Secondary Super Frame header message (Section 16.3.5.2.1.2) in a secondary control channel. The end of the Primary Super Frame header message and Secondary Super Frame header can include reserved bits. In LTE, reserved bits in a physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) message in a control shared channel can be used to convey the congestion report.
  • Of note, in LTE, RFC 3168 (2001) specifies 2 bits in an IP header can be used for a congestion message but does not explicitly specify under what condition a BS should indicate congestion is present.
  • A BS can send a congestion report over the wireless network either periodically or in response to one or more events. When sent periodically, the periodicity of the message can be in the order of seconds, although other periods can be used. The periodicity can depend on the periodicity of the message that the congestion report follows. The BS can request to send the congestion message in response to a change in either downlink or uplink congestion states. In some cases, the BS can request to send the congestion message in response to a congestion level exceeding or falling below a threshold. The BS can broadcast a congestion report to all MSs in network.
  • In some embodiments, no acknowledgement message of the congestion report message is transmitted from an MS to BS or vice versa. Not transmitting an acknowledgement message can avoid use of bandwidth in a potentially congested UL or DL path. In addition, not transmitting an acknowledgement message can avoid adding to congestion on an UL or DL path.
  • FIG. 3 depicts an example system including a base station (BS) 200 and mobile station (MS) 300. A MAC layer 202 of BS 200 can determine whether UL or DL congestion is present and transmit a congestion report to MS 300. In some cases, MAC layer 202 can also inform MS 300 of an action to take in response to a congestion report. For example, the action can be indicated in a reserved field of an Advanced MAP (A-MAP) message specified in IEEE 802.16m draft 8 (2010) (section 16.3.5.2.2) or a reserved field of a C-RNTI (Cell Radio Network Temporary Identifier) message specified in LTE.
  • In some cases, if BS 200 does not inform MS 300 of an action to take in response to a congestion report, MS 300 can ask the BS which action to take or whether an anticipated action is acceptable. In some embodiments, each MS can ask the BS what response to perform so that all MSs do not perform the same task and cause other types of congestion.
  • In some cases, a MAC layer 301 of MS 300 can determine whether congestion report in a MAC message indicates congestion. For example, the actions taken by MS 300 can be one or more of: (1) WiFi offloading 302, (2) forced scanning 304, and (3) sleep cycle adjustment 306. MS 300 can respond to the congestion report by finding other alternatives to achieve the required quality of service for its applications and also help ease the congestion in the process.
  • The following describes activities of module 302 of FIG. 3 in response to a congestion report message 401. Referring to FIG. 4, at 401, an MS receives a congestion report message. At 402, an MS can scan for other wireless access networks such as an IEEE 802.11 compliant network and variations thereof, TV white space, or other local area or wide area networks, such as LTE. If the WiFi or other network permits communication with the MS, a connection is established with such network. At 403, the MS offloads communications to the available network via an access point. For example, the MS can tell the WiFi network (or other network) to continue the congested connection by providing quality of service (QoS) parameters when the prior network was IEEE 802.16m compliant or Quality Class Identifier (QCI) parameters when the prior network was LTE compliant. The WiFi network can use the QoS or QCI parameters in order to prioritize a connection for the MS to attempt to achieve a desired QoS or QCI. In addition, network re-entry to a WiFi network takes place which can attempt to continue a connection started using a IEEE 802.16m or LTE network. The MS can offload fully or partially the DL or UL traffic to the available network. At 404, the MS informs the BS to close down the UL or DL service flow with the MS that is fully offloaded to the available network. For partial offload of the DL or UL traffic to the available network, if the MS has two radios, then both connections can remain active. But if the MS has one radio, the MS can discontinue the connection on the former network.
  • The following describes activities of module 304 of FIG. 3 in response to a congestion report message 501. Referring to FIG. 5, at 501, an MS receives a congestion report message from a BS. At 502, an MS can perform scanning to find out other base stations in the same network (e.g., WiMAX (e.g., IEEE 802.16 and variations thereof) or LTE) that are not experiencing congestion in the DL or UL. An MS can adjust its scan cycle to find another frequency more or less frequently or enter scanning mode even if a scanning threshold is not crossed. A scanning threshold can be a particular BS signal strength level. If a BS signal strength is too low, then a MS might enter scanning mode. In some cases, regardless of whether the BS signal strength is too low, the MS can adjust its scan cycle.
  • An MS can also listen for a BS's UL or DL congestion message during scanning to determine whether to switch to another frequency. If the other frequency is indicated as congested in a direction (i.e., UL or DL) that is to be used by the MS, then the MS might not switch to that frequency. However, in some cases, an MS can switch to another frequency and then listen for congestion messages.
  • At 503, the MS requests handover from a first BS to a second BS in the network. In accordance with applicable protocols, the first and second BS communicate to change a BS of the MS.
  • The following describes activities of module 306 of FIG. 3 in response to a congestion report message 601. In FIG. 6, at 601, an MS receives a congestion report message from a BS. At 602, the MS can request a new sleep cycle from the BS. At 603, the MS can receive a sleep cycle response from the BS. If the MS complies with WiMAX, the MS can request to go to sleep. In 802.16m draft 8 (2010), a sleep request message is AAI-SLP-REQ and the response message is AAI-SLP-RSP (section 16.2). If the MS complies with LTE, the MS can enter discontinuous reception (DRX) mode instead of sleep mode.
  • Instead of contending for a congested channel and wasting power in the process, the MS can go to sleep, consume less power, power down components to save power until the next congestion message or for a certain amount of time, or buffer UL traffic depending upon the maximum tolerated delay of the applications it is servicing at the time. In some cases, the MS may not send a congestion message to the BS until another congestion report is received indicating no UL congestion. The MS can re-awaken periodically to determine whether a better opportunity to access the channel has arisen (e.g., the relevant channel is not as congested).
  • In response to reported DL congestion, a transmitter can resend all related packets. For example, if 10 packets are expected to be received and 9 packets were received, the MS can request resending all 10 packets. If all 10 packets are not received, MS can flush 9 packets and wait for receipt of all 10 packets. However, in some embodiments, in response to reported DL congestion, the MS may not flush packets in a group, request retransmission of packets in the group, or request transmission of another ACK (in case the ACK message was lost) but instead, the MS may freeze its state and wait until congestion is resolved. To determine whether congestion is resolved, in WiMax, a DL-MAP message indicates usage of the DL whereas in LTE, a preamble indicates DL usage. DL usage can indicate whether congestion is resolved. For example, reduced DL usage can indicate congestion is resolved.
  • In response to reported UL congestion, an application layer may cause packets to decrease in transmission rate and decrease a rate specified in UL bandwidth requests to the BS. In WiMax, an MS can use a bandwidth request mechanism to request UL bandwidth from a BS. In LTE, an MS can use a scheduling request (SR) to request UL bandwidth from a BS. In either case, the rate requested in a bandwidth request can be decreased. In some cases, a MAC layer also slows a packet transmission rate.
  • FIG. 7 depicts an example system in which an MS initiates reporting to a BS regarding quality of experience (QoE) for each application that uses a network. Each application experiences its own congestion on the wireless network. For example, voice over IP (VoIP) applications can be the most sensitive to delays caused by congestion. For download using a file transfer protocol (FTP), QoE can be response time (i.e., time to finish download). For video, QoE can be jitter (i.e., frames violated per second). For audio, QoE can be medium opinion score. Each application that uses the wireless network provides a QoE to a MAC layer (not shown) in the WiMax NIC and the MAC layer transmits the QoE to a base station. For example, during network initiation, capability information transmitted using a MAC message can be used to transmit QoE.
  • In response to the QoE reports from the MS, the BS can prioritize scheduling service flows of applications. Each application has a service flow from an MS to the BS. Using the indication from the client about the currently experienced QoE, the BS can use its scheduler to make the decision to prioritize traffic to deliver acceptable QoE to applications.
  • FIG. 8 depicts an example of a congestion detection system. When this system is used at a BS, the system measures DL congestion. When this system is used at an MS, the system measures UL congestion.
  • Packet queue 802 can be responsible for storing packets before they can be transmitted over the air interface via a wireless network to another device. Channel access control 804 can be responsible for scheduling when a packet in queue 802 is to be transmitted and also how to transmit the packet (based on scheduling set by a BS). Channel access control 804 can also be responsible for collecting and providing queuing delay information.
  • Congestion detection control 806 can be responsible for generating a binary indicator, C, with 0 or 1 to indicate respective no congestion or congestion on the link. In some embodiments, a queuing delay is measured as a time interval between the arrival of a packet at packet queue 802 and the first transmission of the packet triggered by channel access control 804. In some cases, if x packets have been waiting in a packet queue for more than a high packet delay threshold, Q1, then the link is considered congested. In some cases, x is 1 and Q1 is 500 ms, although other values can be used. In some cases, if y packets have been waiting in a packet queue for less than a low packet delay threshold, Q2, then the link is considered not congested. In some cases, y=10 and Q2 is 100 ms, although other values can be used.
  • The following congestion detection pseudo code can be used to update the value of congestion indicator, C:
  • If (q > or = Q1)  {    x = x + 1;    y = 0;    if (x > or = P1)    {      C = 1;    }  } else  { if (q < or = Q2)   {     y = y + 1;     x = 0;     if (y > or = P2)     {      C = 0;     }   }  }

    where:
      • q denotes the queuing delay (ms) of how long a packet has been in packet queue 802;
      • x represents a high packet count; and
      • y represents a low packet count.
        Both x and y are set to 0 in initialization. Variable C=1 indicates congestion is detected.
  • The following thresholds can be used in congestion detection control:
      • Q1: the high packet delay threshold, e.g. 500 ms
      • Q2: the low packet delay threshold, e.g. 100 ms
      • P1: the high packet count threshold, e.g., 1
      • P2: the low packet count threshold, e.g., 10.
  • FIG. 9 depicts an example of how queuing delay and congestion indicator can be related. A high delay threshold and low delay threshold are used as criteria to determine whether the network is congested or not and the packet count threshold is used to minimize the impact of random event and avoid oscillation.
  • Referring again to FIG. 8, an Application Programming Interface (API) is responsible for exposing the information collected by congestion detection control 806 to applications. For example, applications can use the information to determine whether to request transmission of content on a channel.
  • A BS can respond to congestion on its DL by broadcasting a congestion report to all MS. An application can create a congestion report and request a MAC layer (not depicted) to transmit a congestion report in a MAC message. In addition or alternatively, a BS can react to congestion on its DL by prioritizing important packets. A MAC layer can prioritize packets. In some cases an application can inform the MAC layer of priority of packets based on a priority field in an IP header. The most important packets can be decided by packet size specified in IP header, for example, in a manner as described in U.S. Patent Application No. ______, filed ______ (attorney docket number P33587).
  • An MS can respond to UL congestion by letting application layers know of the congestion and the applications can lower a source rate of packets to a packet queue, inter-packet time, or request transmission at a lower rate. In some cases, an MS can respond to UL congestion by prioritizing packets.
