Application: Fingerprint-based vran cell integrity monitoring (Patent ID: US20240098514A1)

The patent filed by Intel Corp discusses various methods for analyzing the state of a 5G network using fingerprint-based vRAN cell integrity monitoring. The approach involves obtaining fingerprint reference data of the network state between a vRAN node and a device wirelessly connected to it, comparing this data to subsequent fingerprint data to detect changes in network conditions, and then taking actions at the vRAN node to modify or disable components of the 5G network based on the detected changes. The method utilizes in-phase and quadrature data captured from a reference signal, such as an uplink sounding reference signal, to analyze parameters like frequency response, signal-to-noise ratio, RSRP, and RSRQ values for detecting network condition changes.

The patent also describes a device with processing circuitry and memory that can perform the operations outlined in the method, including obtaining fingerprint reference data, comparing it to subsequent data, and triggering actions at the vRAN node based on the detected changes. The device uses IQ data from a reference signal transmitted by a fingerprint reference unit circuitry to analyze network conditions and can adjust power levels, modulation schemes, TDD patterns, compression rates, or disable antennas at the vRAN node in response to the detected changes. Overall, the patent focuses on enhancing the deployment and coordination of network operation processing, compute processing, and communications in 5G networks through the use of fingerprint-based monitoring for improved network management and performance optimization.
