Application: Methods and apparatus to improve ue experience during inter-du inter-cell beam management (Patent ID: US20230397069A1)

The patent filed by MediaTek Inc. describes apparatus and methods for inter-DU inter-cell cell switch with beam management. The user equipment (UE) receives a cell switch command, performs RLC reestablishment, MAC reset, sends a PDCP status report, and performs self-detected PDCP retransmission for UL data transfer. The method involves identifying source-failed PDUs, sending PDCP status reports to the target cell, and triggering actions based on RRC requests or cell switch indications.

The UE includes components such as an RF transceiver, command receiving module, RLC entity, MAC entity, PDCP entity, and self-detect module. The cell switch command can be carried by a MAC control element or PDCCH, triggering actions like RLC reestablishment and PDCP retransmission. The MAC reset involves controlling timing advance groups and timers associated with the source cell. The method also includes conditions for triggering PDCP retransmission, such as data volume thresholds or receiving specific signals. The UE self-detected PDCP retransmission is performed based on detecting source-failed UL PDCP PDUs and meeting specific conditions outlined in the claims.
