Application: Spatial and frequency domain beam management using time series information (Patent ID: US20240106510A1)

The patent filed by MediaTek Inc. describes a method, apparatus, and computer-readable medium for wireless communication involving beam management. The wireless equipment selects a subset of beams for beam management, measures signals on other beams, inputs these measurements into a computational model, and receives predictions of channel measurements on the selected beams from the model. The method involves utilizing machine learning models trained on historical channel measurements to optimize beam selection and communication with base stations or user equipment.

The claims associated with the patent detail the specific steps involved in the method, including selecting optimal beams based on predictions, updating the computational model with validation subset measurements, and selecting beams for communication with the base station. The apparatus described in the patent includes a memory and processor configured to perform beam management based on channel measurement predictions, select optimal beams, and operate in different frequency bands. The computer-readable medium stores executable code for implementing the wireless communication method, including selecting beams, measuring signals, inputting data to the computational model, and receiving predictions for channel measurements.
