Application: Method and apparatus to have efficient resource sharing for ue with multiple sim cards (Patent ID: US20240107608A1)

The patent filed by MediaTek Inc. describes a method, computer-readable medium, and apparatus for wireless communication involving a user equipment (UE) entering and maintaining connections with multiple base stations of different networks. The UE can deactivate or release resources used for communication with one base station while entering a connection with another base station, allowing for efficient resource management and seamless handover between networks. The method also includes recovering resources upon releasing a connection with a base station, ensuring optimal resource allocation.

The patent further details the process for both the UE and the base station to exchange requests and indications for deactivating, releasing, and recovering resources, specifically focusing on secondary cells (SCells) on the UE. The communication between the UE and the base station is facilitated through various control elements and messages, such as medium access control (MAC) control elements and radio resource control (RRC) messages. This approach enables the UE and the base station to efficiently manage resources, particularly SCells, during network transitions, ultimately improving the overall performance and reliability of wireless communication systems.
