The UE may identify a subframe with substantially no IDC interference from one or more of the multiple radio transceivers at the UE. The UE may determine that the subframe with substantially no IDC interference occurs during an unscheduled period of a Discontinuous Reception (DRX) cycle for the UE. The UE may perform Radio Link Monitoring (RLM) during the subframe with substantially no IDC interference during the unscheduled period of the DRX cycle for the UE.

  • BACKGROUND
  • Modern wireless devices such as cell phones, tablets, and other portable computing devices often include multiple types of radios for communication purposes. For instance, a smart phone may include a 4G transceiver to connect to a cell tower, a WiFi transceiver to connect to a local internet hot spot, and a Bluetooth transceiver to connect to a nearby device such as a headset or keyboard. The WiFi transceiver can receive information at substantially the same time period as when the Bluetooth transceiver transmits information. In some examples, the 4G transceiver can transmit information at substantially the same time period as when the Bluetooth transceiver receives information. Thus, coexistence interference can result between the WiFi transceiver and the Bluetooth transceiver, or between the 4G transceiver and the Bluetooth receiver, operating in the smart phone, thereby reducing the effectiveness of communication of each of the collocated transceivers.

  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION
  • Before the present invention is disclosed and described, it is to be understood that this invention is not limited to the particular structures, process steps, or materials disclosed herein, but is extended to equivalents thereof as would be recognized by those ordinarily skilled in the relevant arts. It should also be understood that terminology employed herein is used for the purpose of describing particular embodiments only and is not intended to be limiting.
  • DEFINITIONS
  • As used herein, the term “substantially” refers to the complete or nearly complete extent or degree of an action, characteristic, property, state, structure, item, or result. For example, an object that is “substantially” enclosed would mean that the object is either completely enclosed or nearly completely enclosed. The exact allowable degree of deviation from absolute completeness may in some cases depend on the specific context. However, generally speaking the nearness of completion will be so as to have the same overall result as if absolute and total completion were obtained. The use of “substantially” is equally applicable when used in a negative connotation to refer to the complete or near complete lack of an action, characteristic, property, state, structure, item, or result.
  • Other terms may be defined elsewhere in the body of this specification.
  • Example Embodiments
  • An initial overview of technology embodiments is provided below and then specific technology embodiments are described in further detail later. This initial summary is intended to aid readers in understanding the technology more quickly but is not intended to identify key features or essential features of the technology nor is it intended to limit the scope of the claimed subject matter.
  • Bluetooth transceivers are often collocated with other types of radios and/or transceivers. For example, transceivers which communicate using Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA), such as a Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) Long Term Evolution (LTE) transceiver, an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.16 transceiver, commonly referred to as WiMAX (Worldwide interoperability for Microwave Access), a wireless local area network (WLAN) transceiver (i.e., IEEE 802.11 radio, commonly referred to as WiFi), and/or a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNNS) receiver.
  • Each collocated radio may be used for a specific purpose. For instance, a Bluetooth transceiver can be used to communicate with a wireless personal area network (WPAN), a WiFi transceiver can be used to communicate with a wireless local area network (WLAN), and a 3GPP LTE or WiMAX transceiver can be used to communicate with a wireless wide area network (WWAN).
  • The simultaneous operation in a wireless device (e.g., a smart phone or tablet) of a Bluetooth transceiver that is collocated with other types of transceivers which communicate using OFDMA, such as a 3GPP LTE transceiver, a WiMAX transceiver, and/or a WiFi transceiver, can create interference that reduces the data throughput of both transceivers. Multiple examples are given throughout this specification of a collocated Bluetooth transceiver and a 3GPP LTE transceiver. This is not intended to be limiting. The same system(s) and method(s) can apply with other types of OFDMA radios operating in a Time Domain Duplex (TDD) format that are collocated with a Bluetooth transceiver.
  • In general, TDD refers to duplex communication links where the uplink is separated from the downlink by an allocation of different time slots in the same frequency band. Since TDD allows asymmetric flow for uplink and downlink data transmissions, users are allocated time slots for uplink and downlink transmission. TDD can be advantageous when there is asymmetry of uplink and downlink data rates.
  • Bluetooth receptions can collide with transmissions from the 3GPP LTE transceiver, especially when both transceivers are collocated on the same device, such as a smart phone, a tablet, a net book, a laptop, or another type of wireless mobile device. Bluetooth transmissions can also desensitize reception in the 3GPP LTE transceiver.
  • To reduce coexistence interference, there are several types of potential solutions. One potential solution is to use frequency division multiplexing (FDM) to move the signal from one transceiver further away in frequency from the signal of another transceiver, thereby creating more frequency separation. Another potential solution is the use of time division multiplexing (TDM) in which scheduling can be used so that when one transceiver is transmitting, another co-located transceiver is not simultaneously receiving.
  • An example of TDM can include discontinuous reception (DRX), which will be discussed in further detail below. A radio frequency solution involves the use of radio frequency filtering which can be used to reduce the amount of out-of-bounds (OOB) emissions, using a filter at a transmitter, or blocking incoming out-of-bounds signals using a filter at a receiver. Power based solutions can be used to reduce transmission power, thereby potentially reducing the level of interference. Hybrid solutions are also possible by combining two or more of the previously presented solutions.
  • Repeating time-domain transmission/reception (Tx/Rx) patterns can be defined for a 3GPP LTE transceiver and a collocated Bluetooth transceiver to coordinate their transmitters and receivers. The Tx/Rx pattern can be repeated at a known interval if data gets allocated with a periodicity on time. The known interval enables persistent reservations to be made in the 3GPP LTE transceiver to reduce or avoid interferences between the different transceivers.
  • For example, the repeated Tx/Rx pattern defines a specific Bluetooth transmit time slot for each Extended Synchronous Connection Oriented (eSCO) packet transmitted by the Bluetooth transceiver to prevent the Bluetooth transmission from interfering with the 3GPP LTE reception, and to protect the 3GPP LTE transmission from interfering with Bluetooth reception.
  • The ability to coordinate the 3GPP LTE and Bluetooth transmitters and receivers using persistent reservation also enables additional types of transceivers to be collocated. For example, a WiFi transceiver can be coordinated to communicate at specific time periods in the coordination formed between the 3GPP LTE and Bluetooth transceivers.
  • FIG. 1 provides a timing diagram showing the transmission and reception of eSCO formatted packets 102 for a Bluetooth radio and the Tx/Rx sub-frames 104 for all seven configurations of a 3GPP LTE radio operating in a Time Division Duplex (TDD) mode. The figures and tables presented herein are displayed using one-slot Bluetooth eSCO packets as an example. However, this interference avoidance technique can be applied to other Bluetooth profiles and packet length (for example three or five slot packets). The Bluetooth eSCO packets can include a variety of different formats having a different number of transmit and receive time slots. For single slot eSCO packets, Bluetooth specifies intervals of 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16 and 18. The interval illustrated in FIG. 1 is TeSCO=8, comprising four transmit time slots and four receive time slots. Bluetooth also specifies a re-transmit window WeSCO to be 0, 2, or 4. The re-transmit window specifies the number of attempts at transmitting that can occur for a Bluetooth packet within its interval (TeSCO). While the specification currently limits the retransmission attempts to 0, 2 or 4 instances, it is possible to include additional retransmission attempts when TeSCO is equal or greater than 8. Future Bluetooth standards may include additional retransmission attempts, and the embodiments disclosed herein are not limited to the 0, 2 or 4 instances recited in the present standard.
  • The 3GPP LTE standard, as used herein, can include 3GPP LTE Release 8 in the fourth quarter of 2008, 3GPP LTE Advanced Release 10 in the first quarter of 2011, and Release 11 in the third quarter of 2012. However, the embodiments disclosed herein are not limited to these releases. Future standards can also apply when the same TDD configurations and sub-frame timing is used. A transceiver operating in accordance with at least one of these 3GPP LTE Releases is also referred to herein as an LTE transceiver. The use of the term 3GPP, 3GPP LTE, or LTE is not intended to be limiting. Any of the terms may refer to any of the 3GPP releases.
  • Currently, seven different LTE TDD configurations are defined for 3GPP LTE communication. FIG. 1 provides an example of each LTE configuration, numbered 0-6. Each configuration is aligned at the beginning 106 of the longer continuous number of receive subframes for each configuration. The Bluetooth packet is synchronized such that a first receive time slot (Slot 1) is aligned with the first receive subframe of the continuous receive subframes in each of the seven LTE configurations.
  • As illustrated in FIG. 1, the Bluetooth time slots 102 have a different time period from the LTE subframe. The Bluetooth time slots each have a period of 0.625 milliseconds (ms), while each LTE frame has a frame duration of 10 ms. Each LTE frame consists of 10 sub-frames. Thus, each subframe has a duration of 1 ms. Accordingly, even though the Bluetooth packet is synchronized such that transmit Slot 0 is aligned with a transmit subframe in each LTE TDD configuration, and receive Slot 1 is aligned with the first receive subframe in the continuous receive subframe for each configuration, the transmit and receive slots quickly become unaligned such that transmissions and receptions from the Bluetooth and 3GPP transceivers will create co-interference in each of the transceivers.
  • Co-interference can occur when one of the transceivers transmits during the other transceiver's receive interval. This is especially true when the 3GPP LTE transceiver transmits during the receive period of the Bluetooth transceiver, since the 3GPP LTE transceiver transmits at significantly higher power and can therefore overpower (or collide) most Bluetooth signals that the Bluetooth transceiver is attempting to receive during the Bluetooth receive period.
  • FIG. 2 is a diagram illustrating a long discontinuous reception (DRX) cycle in accordance with an example. The concept of DRX was introduced for saving power in 3GPP LTE Release 8. DRX can be used to enable a wireless device, such as a user equipment (UE) in a 3GPP LTE network, to discontinuously monitor a control channel, such as the physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) communicated from a transmission station such as an enhanced node (eNB or eNodeB). The discontinuous monitoring by using DRX can provide significant power savings at the UE since the receiver at the UE can be turned off for selected periods. The scheduling of a 3GPP LTE transceiver using DRX will be explained more fully below.
  • In accordance with one embodiment of the present invention, in addition to saving power, DRX can also be used to provide a TDM solution for reducing coexistence interference of co-located devices. For example, coexistence interference between a collocated 3GPP LTE transceiver and a low power Bluetooth (BT) transceiver can be reduced, using DRX, by scheduling the BT transceiver to transmit when the LTE transceiver is not receiving.
  • In one embodiment, a transceiver in a multi-radio wireless device (e.g., a LTE transceiver) can be configured to be turned off more often by reducing the amount of time that the transceiver monitors control channels, such as the physical downlink control channel (PDCCH). In other words, the transceiver can communicate with a transmission station, referred to as a network node, to negotiate time periods in which the transceiver will receive communications from the network node. During the negotiated times when information is not received, the transceiver can turn its receiver off and enter a low power state. DRX is used in a number of different wireless communication standards, including but not limited to 3GPP LTE Rel. 8, 9, 10, and 11.
  • The 3GPP LTE transceiver can be operable to monitor the PDCCH discontinuously if the 3GPP LTE transceiver is configured for DRX and is in an RRC_CONNECTED mode. Otherwise, a 3GPP LTE transceiver not configured for DRX can monitor the PDCCH continuously. The Radio Resource Control (RRC) can be used to control the DRX operation in the 3GPP LTE transceiver by configuring the parameters onDurationTimer, drx-InactivityTimer, longDRX-Cycle, drxStartOffset and optionally drxShortCycleTimer and shortDRX-Cycle. When a short DRX cycle is not configured, the 3GPP LTE transceiver monitors the PDCCH at the beginning (according to the length defined in onDurationTimer) of the longDRX-Cycle parameter. The 3GPP LTE transceiver can stop monitoring the PDCCH after onDuration-Timer if the downlink and/or uplink transmissions can be completed. In the remaining DRX cycle (e.g., a short DR cycle), the 3GPP LTE transceiver can become inactive. During this time, the eNB does not schedule downlink transmissions nor will the eNB require the 3GPP LTE transceiver to transmit uplink data. When the short DRX cycle is configured, the short DRX cycle can be considered as a confirmation period for when a packet arrives late, prior to the 3GPP LTE transceiver entering the long DRX cycle. When data arrives at the eNB while the 3GPP LTE transceiver is in the short DRX cycle, the data is scheduled for transmission at the next wake-up time, after which the 3GPP LTE transceiver resumes continuous reception. On the other hand, if no data arrives at the eNB during the short DRX cycle, then the 3GPP LTE transceiver can enter the long DRX cycle if the packet activity is finished for the time being. The DRX Activity Time is the duration when the 3GPP LTE transceiver monitors the PDCCH within the DRX cycle.
  • Returning to FIG. 2, an example long DRX cycle is shown. The long DRX cycle can include an ON duration and an OFF duration. During the ON period of the long DRX cycle (i.e., a scheduled period), the eNB can schedule transmissions with the UE. During the OFF period of the long DRX cycle (i.e., an unscheduled period), the eNB does not schedule transmissions with the UE. In general, the UE can transition to the long DRX cycle from an optional short DRX cycle after the expiration of a timer.
  • FIGS. 3A and 3B illustrate example TDD configurations 310 and 320 that support DRX patterns in accordance with an example. One limitation of using a DRX solution to reduce coexistence interference in a multi-radio device is that current supported longDRX-Cycle values do not include several values that can be used to significantly improve in-device coexistence scenarios. For example, long DRX cycle values that can be used to reduce in-device interference in an LTE and Bluetooth scenario (e.g., an LTE transceiver transmitting/receiving information at substantially the same time as a Bluetooth transceiver transmitting/receiving information) are not allowed. These long DRX cycle values can include 2 milliseconds (ms), 5 ms, and/or 8 ms. As will be discussed in greater detail below, the 2 ms, 5 ms, and 8 ms long DRX cycle values can provide one or more useful Hybrid Automatic Repeat Request (HARQ) process reservation patterns.
  • One limitation of using DRX to reduce coexistence interference in an LTE and Bluetooth scenario is that DRX supports contiguous LTE downlink (DL) subframes within a single DRX cycle when the LTE On Duration period is not extended. Using currently available DRX cycle values, when using the DRX solution for the LTE and Bluetooth scenario, the DRX cycle is 10 ms. In addition, a 5 ms short DRX cycle can be used within the 10 ms long DRX cycle. Thus, DRX can support bitmap patterns with LTE ON downlink subframes that are contiguous in a 10 ms period or a 5 ms period.
  • FIG. 3A illustrates an example of a DRX pattern with a cycle time that can be used to reduce in-device interference in a multi-radio device. In particular, the advantages of including a 2 ms long DRX cycle for the LTE and Bluetooth scenario are shown. The example configuration 310 is a TDD configuration 2. The configuration 310 includes m number of frames, and has a cycle start offset of 2 ms. The total length of the configuration 310 is 10 ms in length, and each subframe is 1 ms in length. In addition, the configuration 310 can be represented by the bitmap 0111010111. In other words, a “0” means that the subframe cannot be used (e.g., the subframe can be turned off), and a “1” means that the sub-frame can be used. Here, the subframes that are turned off are 0, 4, and 6, therefore resulting in the bitmap of 0111010111. The subframes in the configuration 310 can either be downlink (DL) subframes or uplink (UL) subframes. Here, the DL subframes are shaded and the UL subframes are clear. According to the TDD configuration 2 (which is one of the seven TDD configurations available), subframes 0, 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, and 9 are DL subframes and subframes 2 and 7 are uplink subframes. In addition, for DRX patterns relating to the LTE and Bluetooth scenario, uplink subframes are generally disregarded. Therefore, subframes 0, 4, and 6 are off, and subframes 2 and 7 are uplink, resulting in subframes 1, 3, 5, 8, and 9. In other words, subframes 1, 3, 5, 8, and 9 are LTE ON subframes, and are represented as textured subframes.
  • Therefore, a 2 ms long DRX cycle value can be advantageous with configuration 310 to allow more HARQ bitmap patterns to be supported. The 1st subframe is included in the first 2-ms cycle, the 3rd subframe is included in the second 2-ms cycle, the 5th subframe is included in the third 2-ms cycle, and both the 8th and 9th subframe are included in the fifth 2-ms cycle. Neither subframes 6 or 7 are included in the fourth 2-ms cycle because subframe 6 is OFF and subframe 7 is an uplink subframe. The subframe 8 is considered as onDuration because the unit of onDurationTimer is a PDCCH subframe, which is DL subframes in the case of TDD. Therefore, the onDurationTimer starts at subframe 7, but since subframe 7 is an UL subframe, it extends to subframe 8. Therefore, subframe 8 is considered ON. If the 2 ms long DRX cycle is not supported then another HARQ bitmap pattern will need to be used that will result in fewer subframes being used by the LTE.
  • FIG. 3B illustrates an example of an additional DRX pattern with a cycle time that can be used to reduce in-device interference in a multi-radio device. In particular, the advantages of including a 5 ms long DRX cycle for the LTE and Bluetooth scenario are shown. Particularly, the use of the 5 ms long DRX cycle allows additional HARQ bitmap patterns to be used. Without the ability to use a 5 ms long DRX cycle, fewer LTE subframes can be used.
  • The example configuration 320 is a TDD configuration 2. The configuration 320 includes m number of frames, and has a cycle start offset of 5 ms. In addition, the configuration 320 can be represented by the bitmap 0111101111. Here, the subframes that are turned off are 0 and 5, therefore resulting in the bitmap of 0111010111. According to the TDD configuration 2 (which is one of the seven TDD configurations available), subframes 0, 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, and 9 are DL subframes and subframes 2 and 7 are uplink subframes.
  • Since uplink subframes (i.e., subframes 2 and 7) can generally be disregarded when looking at DRX patterns relating to the LTE and Bluetooth scenario, and subframes 0 and 5 are off, the result is subframes 1, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 9. In other words, subframes 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, and 9 are LTE ON downlink subframes that are received by the 3GPP LTE transceiver. Therefore, a 5 ms long DRX cycle value can be advantageous with configuration 320. The subframes 1, 3 and 4 are included in the first 5-ms cycle, and subframes 6, 8 and 9 are included in the second 5-ms cycle. A 10 ms long DRX cycle value cannot be used with TDD configuration 2 because subframe 5 is turned off.
  • In the LTE and Bluetooth scenario, the 2 ms and 5 ms long DRX cycle values can provide useful HARQ process reservation patterns for Time Division Duplex (TDD). In general, HARQ can be used to ensure that data is sent reliably from one node to another node. HARQ uses a stop and wait protocol. A transmitting entity (e.g., a LTE transceiver) transmits the data block to a receiving entity (e.g. an eNB). The transmitting entity stops and waits until it receives an acknowledgement (ACK) or a negative acknowledgement (NACK) from the receiving entity. If the transmitting entity receives an ACK, then the next data block is transmitted. If the transmitting entity receives a NACK, then the same data block can be retransmitted. Whether an ACK or a NACK is received, the transmitting entity schedules and processes the next data block to be transmitted within a specific time period. In LTE, a N-process stop-and-wait may be used, where the transmitting entity stops and waits for one particular HARQ process. For example, the transmission may stop and wait for one particular HARQ process. However, there are multiple HARQ processes, so from the transmitter perspective, it does not stop its transmission.
  • Generally, LTE uses multiple HARQ parallel processes that are offset in time. Since each process transmits a block of data, by the time a next transmission allocation arrives, the transmitting entity would have already received the ACK or the NACK from the receiving entity, and therefore created the next data block to be transmitted or retransmitted. Thus, from the perspective of the transmitting entity, data may be constantly transmitted to the receiving entity. In TDD, a configurable number of HARQ processes are supported.
  • By applying the 2 ms and 5 ms long DRX cycle values to the LTE and Bluetooth scenario, 2 ms and 5 ms patterns are created. These 2 ms and 5 ms patterns can be considered to be HARQ compliant patterns. A pattern can be HARQ compliant if: (1) each LTE DL subframe that is enabled is associated with at least one LTE UL subframe for either a DL or UL HARQ process; and (2) each LTE UL subframe that is enabled is associated with at least one LTE DL subframe for either a DL or UL HARQ process; and (3) at least one LTE DL HARQ process and one UL HARQ process are enabled. In a TDD Configuration 2, there are 192 HARQ compliant patterns and 51 HARQ compliant patterns that are supported when DRX is applied to the LTE and Bluetooth scenario. Therefore, the ratio of HARQ compliant patterns that are supported when DRX is applied to the LTE and Bluetooth scenario is 27%. In addition, the 2 ms and 5 ms long DRX cycle values support additional HARQ bitmap patterns. Without using the 2 ms and 5 ms long DRX cycle values, the HARQ bitmap pattern may use a fewer number of LTE subframes. In other words, the bitmap may include additional “0s” indicating that the particular subframe cannot be used.
  • Providing at least one HARQ process reservation pattern ensures that each radio transceiver of the UE is not transmitting/receiving information while a different radio transceiver of the UE is receiving/transmitting information. Thus, coexistence interference is reduced between the plurality of radio transceivers in the UE. In addition, each radio transceiver can include a different Radio Access Technology (RAT). Examples of RATs include 3GPP LTE, WiMAX, Bluetooth, WLAN, GNSS, etc.
  • FIG. 3C is a timing diagram 330 showing an LTE transmit/receive pattern and a Bluetooth transmit/receive pattern in accordance with an example. The LTE Rx pattern and the LTE Tx pattern are identical. Each ON and OFF cycle lasts for 2 ms. Thus, the bitmap of the LTE Rx and the LTE Tx is 11001100. Each digit (e.g., “1”) indicates whether the LTE is ON or (e.g., “0”) OFF during a one-second period. Therefore, the “11” indicates an ON period for two seconds, and the “00” indicates an OFF period for two seconds. As indicated by the timing diagram 300, there is no interference between the LTE transmission and the Bluetooth reception. In other words, during the time when the LTE is transmitting (i.e., LTE Tx ON), the Bluetooth is not receiving. Similarly, during the time when the Bluetooth is receiving (i.e., BT Rx ON), the LTE is not transmitting. Although there is some overlap between the LTE reception and the Bluetooth transmission, generally no interference results due to the overlap. The assumption is that the Bluetooth transmission does not interfere with the LTE reception because the LTE downlink frequency band does not coincide with the Bluetooth transmission frequency band.
  • The timing diagram 300 relates to LTE operating in a frequency division duplex (FDD). In FDD, separate frequency bands are used at the transmitting side and the receiving side. Since FDD uses different frequency bands for sending and receiving information, the sending and the receiving data signals do not interfere with each other.
  • The timing diagram 300 is a bitmap-based TDM solution for the coexistence between LTE and Bluetooth. Having a bitmap of 8 ms (e.g., 11001100) ensures that the LTE does not transmit information at substantially the same time as the Bluetooth receiving information. Therefore, having an 8 ms long DRX cycle (which corresponds to the bitmap that is 8 ms in length) can be useful for LTE FDD. In some examples, having a 4 ms long DRX cycle can be useful for LTE FDD, but unlike the 8 ms long DRX cycle, the 4 ms long DRX cycle does not take advantage of the HARQ process reservation patterns in LTE FDD. In other words, a number of LTE FDD HARQ processes can be masked off to accommodate coexistence between LTE and Bluetooth. For FDD, there are 8 uplink HARQ processes, while the downlink can have up to 8 HARQ processes. The downlink HARQ processes can be transmitted in any order without a fixed timing, whereas each uplink HARQ process is assigned to a specific subframe. The UE transmits within the same HARQ process every eighth subframe. Therefore, an 8 ms long DRX cycle can be useful for reducing coexistence interference between LTE and Bluetooth because the 8 ms long DRX cycle corresponds with the 8 uplink and downlink HARQ processes found in FDD.
  • FIG. 4 illustrates an ASN.1 code example of DRX configuration information in accordance with an example. The Abstract Syntax Notation 1 (ASN.1) can be used to implement enhancements to existing DRX configurations. The DRX-Config-r11 (i.e., DRX Configuration 11) is used to define various characteristics of the DRX cycles. The existing DRX-Config-r11 includes ASN.1 code to define the onDurationTimer, drx-InactivityTimer, drx-RetransmissionTimer, longDRX-CycleStartOffset, shortDRX-Cycle, and the drxShortCycleTimer. Currently, the longDRX-CycleStartOffset includes cycle values of sf10, sf20, sf32, sf40, etc. The addition of the 2 ms, 5 ms, and 8 ms long DRX cycle values can be included in the DRX-Config-r11 by adding the cycle values of sf2, sf5, and sf8 into the ASN.1 code. Since the existing DRX-Config-r11 does not allow extensions, a new DRX-Config-r11 can be configured with the 2 ms, 5 ms, and 8 ms long DRX cycle values to provide additional DRX patterns that can be used to reduce in-device interference in a multi-radio device, as discussed in the preceding paragraphs.
  • FIG. 5 illustrates a subframe used to receive a downlink reference resource 510 during a long DRX cycle in accordance with an example. The downlink reference resource 510 can include a reference signal (RS) transmitted from the eNB. The measured power of the reference signal at the UE is used to determine the power at which the eNB transmits the downlink data. The measured power of the reference signal can be communicated via a Channel State Information (CSI) report to the eNB.
  • In wireless communications, the CSI can refer to known channel properties of a communication link. The CSI describes how a signal propagates from the transmitter to the receiver. In addition, the CSI can represent the combined effect of scattering, fading, etc. The CSI ensures that transmissions are adapted to current channel conditions, thereby leading to reliable communication by Bluetooth transceivers, LTE transceivers, etc. The CSI is periodically transmitted from the UE to the eNB.
  • In general, the CSI can include at least one of a channel quality indicator (CQI), a precoding matrix indicator (PMI), and a rank indicator (RI). The CQI is information signaled by the UE to the eNB to indicate a suitable data rate for downlink transmission. The CQI can be based on a measurement of the receiving downlink Signal to Interference plus Noise Ratio (SINR), as well as knowing various characteristics of the UE receiver. The PMI is a signal fed back by the UE, and corresponds to an index of a precoder that maximizes the aggregate number of data bits which can be received acrossed the downlink spatial transmission layers. The RI is signaled to the eNB by UEs that are configured for a Physical Downlink Shared Channel (PDSCH). The RI corresponds to the number of useful transmission layers for spatial multiplexing (based on the UE's estimate of the downlink channel),
  • The CSI report is typically communicated at least four symbols after the downlink referenced resource 510. In order for the measurement of the reference signal to be accurate, the reference signal should be received in a downlink subframe with minimal interference. Interference can reduce the accuracy of the reference signal measurement and impact the accuracy of the CSI report. Accordingly, it can be important to select a downlink subframe to receive the reference signal that has little interference.
  • Currently, the rules for selecting a downlink subframe for a downlink reference resource 510 do not consider the impact of in-device interference. As a result, the measurement of the reference signal received in the downlink reference resource 510 symbol can be negatively impacted when there is in-device interference (e.g., a Bluetooth transceiver is transmitting information at substantially the same time as when a LTE transceiver is receiving the reference signal).
  • As illustrated in FIG. 5, the long DRX cycle of an LTE (or WWAN) transceiver can be partitioned into a scheduled period and an unscheduled period. When transitioning from an LTE unscheduled period to an LTE scheduled period, the UE can be configured to send the CSI (e.g., the CQI, PMI, and RI) to the eNB. In other words, the LTE transceiver in the UE can be configured to transmit the CSI to the eNB. The CSI can be based on the reference signal received in the downlink reference resource 510. The downlink reference resource 510 (i.e., the time domain reference) can be defined by a downlink subframe n−nCQI ref.
  • The CSI reporting subframe 520 occurs at least four subframes after the downlink subframe n−nCQI ref. In other words, the CSI is periodically reported at an uplink subframe to the eNB, and the uplink subframe occurs at least four subframes after receiving the downlink reference resource 510 subframe from the eNB. Therefore, the CSI reporting subframe 520 is located after a long DRX cycle of a transceiver (e.g., a WWAN transceiver) in the UE, and corresponds with the downlink reference resource 510 (i.e., the downlink subframe n−nCQI ref). In some examples, the CSI is reported more than four subframes (e.g., six subframes) after the downlink subframe n−nCQI ref.
  • When DRX is used as a TDM solution, the CSI measurement needs special handling. Otherwise, the downlink reference resource 510 can be impacted by in-device interference between collocated transceivers in the multi-radio device, thereby causing the UE to report an inaccurate CSI. An inaccurate CSI can substantially reduce the system throughput. In other words, the average rate of successful message delivery over a communication channel can reduce as a result of the inaccurate CSI. Therefore, the downlink reference resource 510 should not be impacted by in-device interference.
  • The downlink subframe n−nCQI ref can be considered to be valid if the downlink subframe n−nCQI ref is not interfered by in-device interference. Therefore, if the UE receives the reference signal or other type of downlink reference resource in a downlink subframe from the eNB during a time period that does not correspond with a different coexisting radio transceiver in the UE transmitting an uplink subframe, then the downlink subframe is not impacted by in-device interference. In other words, the downlink subframe n−nCQI ref is not received at the UE, from the eNB, while in-device interference currently exists. As a result, the downlink subframe n−nCQI ref is valid and can be used for receiving a downlink reference resource.
  • In some examples, the downlink subframe n−nCQI ref may be assigned by the eNB to be received by the UE (e.g. a LTE transceiver in the UE) in a subframe at the same time that a different transceiver in the UE (e.g., a Bluetooth transceiver) is transmitting information. If it is known that this occurs, then the downlink subframe n−nCQI ref can be designated as invalid and cannot be used for receiving a reference symbol from the eNB. In other words, the downlink reference resource 510 can be identified to not be used if the downlink subframe associated with the downlink reference resource 510 is interfered by in-device interference.
  • In some examples, to reduce the chance of in-device interference in a downlink subframe, the downlink subframe can be designated as invalid if the downlink subframe belongs to the unscheduled period of the long DRX cycle, as illustrated in FIG. 5. The subframes designated as invalid will not be used by the eNB to transmit data to the UE. Therefore, if a DRX solution is used for in-device coexistence, then the downlink reference resource 510 can be received in a downlink subframe that is not included in the unscheduled period of the long DRX cycle. In one embodiment, a downlink subframe included in the scheduled period of the long DRX cycle can be designated as a valid subframe for the UE to use to receive a downlink reference resource, such as an RS. In addition, a subframe in the unscheduled period can be used by the UE to report the CSI to the eNB that is based on the reference resource.
  • In one embodiment, the downlink subframe n−nCQI ref can be considered to be valid (i.e. capable of receiving the reference signal) if: (1) the downlink subframe is configured as a downlink subframe for the UE; (2) the downlink subframe does not include a Multimedia Broadcast Single Frequency Network (MBSFN) subframe (except for transmission mode 9); (3) the downlink subframe does not contain a Downlink Pilot Time Slot (DwPTS) field in case the length of DwPTS is 7680·Ts and less; (4) the downlink subframe does not fall within a configured measurement gap for the UE; (5) the downlink subframe, for periodic CSI reporting, is an element of the CSI subframe set that is linked to the periodic CSI report when the UE is configured with CSI subframe sets; and (6) the downlink subframe is not interfered by in-device interference. In addition, the downlink subframe n−nCQI ref can be considered to be valid if the downlink subframe is not part of an unscheduled period when DRX is being used to reduce in-device coexistence.
  • In some embodiments of the present invention, radio link monitoring (RLM), performed by a WWAN transceiver of a UE, can use subframes with substantially no in-device interference from a plurality of coexisting radio transceivers in the UE. The RLM function in the UE is to monitor the downlink radio link quality of a serving cell in an RRC_CONNECTED state. The RLM is based on the cell-specific reference signals. As a result, the UE in RRC_CONNECTED state can determine whether it is in-sync or out-of-sync with respect to the serving cell. In case of a certain number of consecutive out-of-sync indications (called ‘N310’), the UE can start a network-configured radio link failure timer ‘T310’. The timer is stopped if a number ‘N311’ of consecutive in-sync indications are reported by the UE's physical layer. Both the out-of-sync and in-sync counters (N310 and N311) are configurable by the network. Upon expiry of the timer T310, Radio Link Failure (RLF) occurs. As a consequence, the UE turns off its transmitter to avoid interference and is then required to re-establish the RRC connection.
  • When subframes that are impacted by in-device interference are used for RLM, the interference can result in errors in measuring the cell-specific reference signals. For example, during an unscheduled period of the long DRX cycle, other RATs (e.g., WLAN, Bluetooth) can transmit information. Thus, a Bluetooth transceiver in the UE can be transmitting information at substantially the same subframe as an LTE transceiver is receiving information, such as the cell-specific reference signals. If multiple errors are received, the UE may report a radio link failure, turn off the WWAN transmitter, and proceed to re-establish an RRC connection. This can result in a reduced throughput and unnecessary overhead for the 3GPP network.
  • In some examples, a WWAN radio transceiver of a UE can be configured to receive RLM in a downlink subframe that occurs during a scheduling period of a long DRX cycle, thereby decreasing a likelihood of performing RLM using subframes that are impacted by in-device interference. Thus, the UE may not use subframes that are impacted by in-device interference while the UE is performing RLM. In addition, during an unscheduled period of the long DRX cycle, the UE may determine which subframes are not interfered by in-device interference. The UE may perform RLM using the subframes that are not interfered by in-device interference.
  • In another embodiment, a method 600 for reducing coexistence interference in a multi-radio device is disclosed, as depicted in the flow chart of FIG. 6. The method includes the operation of receiving 610 a discontinuous reception (DRX) configuration at the multi-radio device from an enhanced Node B (eNodeB). The multi-radio device can be a user equipment having a plurality of radio transceivers. The method 600 further comprises applying 620 the discontinuous reception (DRX) configuration to at least one of the plurality of radio transceivers in the multi-radio device. The DRX can include a long DRX cycle for the at least one of the plurality of radio transceivers. The method 600 further comprises selecting one of a 2 milliseconds (ms), 5 ms, and 8 ms cycle start offset period for the long DRX cycle to reduce coexistence interference between the plurality of radio transceivers in the multi-radio device.

  • In one embodiment, the 2 ms cycle start offset period in method 600 provides at least one HARQ reservation pattern to reduce the coexistence interference between the Bluetooth radio transceiver and a LTE radio transceiver communicating in LTE Time Division Duplex (LTE-TDD). In addition, the 5 ms cycle start offset period in method 600 provides at least one HARQ reservation pattern to reduce the coexistence interference between the Bluetooth radio transceiver and a LTE radio transceiver communicating in LTE Time Division Duplex (LTE-TDD). Furthermore, the 8 ms cycle start offset period in method 600 provides at least one HARQ reservation pattern to reduce the coexistence interference between the Bluetooth radio transceiver and a LTE radio transceiver communicating in LTE Frequency Division Duplex (LTE-FDD). In addition, the method 600 can include monitoring, by the UE, the Physical Downlink Control Channel (PDCCH) during the long DRX cycle.
  • In one embodiment, the operation of selecting one of the plurality of cycle start offset periods in method 600 can include providing at least one HARQ process reservation pattern for ensuring that each radio transceiver of the UE is not transmitting/receiving information while a different radio transceiver of the UE is receiving/transmitting information, thereby reducing coexistence interference between the plurality of radio transceivers in the UE, wherein each radio transceiver includes a different Radio Access Technology (RAT).
  • In another embodiment, a radio coexistence system 700 is disclosed. FIG. 7 illustrates an example block diagram of the system 700. The system 700 comprises a discontinuous reception (DRX) module 710 operable to apply DRX to a wireless wide area network (WWAN) transceiver in a user equipment (UE) with a plurality of coexisting radio transceivers. A channel state information (CSI) reporting module 720 is configured to periodically report the CSI, from the UE to the eNB, at a CSI reporting subframe. The CSI reporting subframe can be located after a long DRX cycle of the WWAN transceiver in the UE. A reference resource subframe selection module 730 is configured to select a downlink reference resource subframe relative to a position of the CSI reporting subframe to enable the downlink reference resource subframe to be received with substantially no in-device interference from the plurality of coexisting radio transceivers in the UE. A radio link monitoring (RLM) module 740 is configured to perform RLM using subframes of the WWAN receiver with substantially no in-device interference from the plurality of coexisting radio transceivers in the UE. The RLM can be performed on the WWAN radio transceiver of the UE during a scheduling period of a long DRX cycle. The system 700 can include a Bluetooth radio 702, a 3GPP LTE radio 704, and a collocated radio 706. While the DRX module, CSI reporting module, reference resource subframe selection module, and the RLM module are illustrated as being located externally to the radios in the mobile communication device, it is also possible that the modules are integrated within one or more of the radios.
  • In one embodiment, the plurality of coexisting radio transceivers can include at least two Radio Access Technologies (RATs), the RATs comprising: a 3GPP LTE radio transceiver, a Wireless Local Access Network (WLAN) transceiver, a Bluetooth transceiver, and a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) receiver.
  • In one embodiment, the downlink reference resource subframe includes a CSI reference resource.

  • In some embodiments, the CSI reporting module 720 is further configured to report the CSI, from the UE to the eNB, during a transition period from an unscheduled period to a scheduling period, wherein the unscheduled period and the scheduling period occur during a long DRX cycle of the 3GPP LTE radio transceiver. In addition, the CSI reporting module 720 is further configured to periodically report the CSI at an uplink subframe to the eNB, wherein the uplink subframe occurs at least four subframes after receiving the downlink reference resource subframe from the eNB. Furthermore, the CSI reporting module 720 is further configured to receive the downlink reference resource subframe, at the UE from the eNB, during a time period that does not correspond with a different coexisting radio transceiver in the UE transmitting an uplink subframe. In some examples, the CSI reporting module 720 is further configured to receive the downlink reference resource subframe, at the UE from the eNB, during a scheduling period of the long DRX cycle.
  • In some embodiments, of the present disclosure, the system 700 can include a radio link monitoring (RLM) module 740 configured to perform RLM using downlink subframes of the 3GPP LTE radio transceiver with substantially no in-device interference from the plurality of coexisting radio transceivers in the UE. In addition, the RLM module 740 is further configured to perform RLM on the 3GPP LTE radio transceiver of the UE during a scheduling period of a long DRX cycle of the DRX.
